Staff Picks Playlist (September 3)
The end of this past work week unfortunately brought us into September, but with it came a couple of hotly anticipated releases we can't complain about, even if the months are getting colder. The two big releases of this past week belonged to Isaiah Rashad, with The Sun's Tirade, and Travis Scott's Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight. The two projects differ greatly in sound and style, with Travis being a more experimental rapper and Isaiah keeping that true hip-hop feel alive and well. They both have that Kendrick Lamar feature on deck, though.
Behind The Beat: Dun Deal
Dun Deal is the guy behind the breakout hits of both Young Thug and Migos. It’s been three years ago since “Stoner” and “Hannah Montana” both appeared on the third edition of the compilation mixtape series put together by DJ Spinz' Hoodrich Production Group, with which Dun Deal is still affiliated. In the time since, both acts have not only stuck around, they’ve become among the most influential young acts in the industry, with record deals to prove it.
Stream Johnny Cinco's "Trap Religious"
Just over a month ago, Johnny Cinco shared a new tape entitled I Swear, and now, seemingly out of the blue, he's dropped a new project on us. Trap Religious is, as of right now, only available to stream on Soundcloud, and we're not sure if it's being treated as a tape or an album.
