Rob $tone was introduced to the site last month when Denzel Curry, Boogie, and Cousin Stizz -- three of the most talented youngsters in the game -- all appeared on the remix of his track "Chill Bill." It's the original that's really blowing up, though -- now No. 65 on the Hot 100. The San Diego lemon enthusiast has now released a new project, I'm Almost Ready, which $tone calls a "mixtape that should've been an album." The "Chill Bill" remix shows up as one of two bonus songs on I'm Almost Ready, which stretches 14 tracks from the intro to the outro.

Denzel Curry also guests on the track "Meetings," and the other two features on the (standard) project come from Mitchy Slick and Ca$h Passion. First impression: Rob $tone is on some new-wave shit on this finely curated mixtape, which comes out of an area that needs more exposure. Stream I'm Almost Ready below.
