Earlier this year, Childish Gambino surprised many people by stepping outside of his usual lane to pay tribute to his Atlanta heritage (namely DJ Drama's scene-defining "Gangsa Grillz" tapes) with the mixtape STN MTN.
Hip-hop group Overdoz have kept a very low-key profile since dropping off their BOOM mixtape, which was over a year ago. The project saw a solid amount of features and was well-received on the site, but finally the group is back, and it was worth the wait.
Selah Sue isn't a household name in the U.S. yet, although that's changing fast. The Belgian singer and songwriter first broke in Europe, and her debut album Selah Sue was later released in the U.S., to similar success.
Well, this is a little weird. A track just appeared on B.o.B's SoudCloud entitled "Candler Rd.," but it's not a freestyle over the joint with the same name that Childish Gambino released back in August.
Lion Babe, the duo consisting of vocalist Jillian Hervey and producer Lucas Goodman, are making their HNHH debut tonight in grand fashion. Calling on Childish Gambino, the New York City-based duo decide to unleash their new single “Jump Hi”.
It's no secret that hip-hop can stretch itself a bit thin as far as creativity is concerned. If artists were taxed every time they mentioned dollars, they'd all be broke. Fortunately, amongst the clones, several voices stand out from the crowd.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
Leave it to Childish Gambino to rely on those itchy keyboardists at Reddit to uncover a secret track from his recent Kauai EP. Fans of EP, which is now streaming on Spotify, may have found themselves scratching their head at the almost all-instrumental remix of "3005" found at the project's tail end.
Earlier today, Childish Gambino dropped off the STN MTN mixtape, the first part of a joint mixtape/EP drop he planned for today. The other part, the KAUAI EP, hasn't arrived on iTunes yet, but a track from it just surfaced on SoundCloud.
Earlier this morning we posted a news article which found Childish Gambino explaining the mixtape/EP idea behind his new project STN MTN/KAUAI, which is half free mixtape and half commercial EP. Little did we know that the mixtape itself would arrive thirty minutes later. But it did. And it's great.
Well, this a nice surprise as we lead into the weekend! Childish Gambino comes through, outta nowhere, with his new mixtape STN MTN, the other half of which, KAUAI, is an EP that will be available on iTunes later today.
