Phil Ade- Xscape
There was a time I listened to Phil Ade quite consistently, but he sort of fell off with his steady music releases a while ago. Now he’s been popping back up, gearing up for the release of his project R.O.S.E. on July 30th. The DMV native recently dropped “Xscape,” a song for the ladies, with a smooth piano-laced beat. Phil displays his prowess on the mic, playing with his flow. This definitely has a summer-time-good-times feel.
ProbCause- LSD Feat. Chance The Rapper
This song is almost a trip in and of itself. The heavy beat has a slight dub-step(?) influence, and although I’m not too familiar with ProbCause he handles the huge-ness of the beat well. Perhaps listening to this song is what LSD feels like—it’s all over the place and there are so many elements to it, but it somehow works well. Chance The Rapper comes in on the second half, and he definitely steals the spotlight with his verse. And just when you think it can’t get more weird, horns start playing, and you think it’s the song outro, but nope, it just keeps going with some trippy music and ad-libs from Chance.
This is another weird beat for UA. I have no idea where this sample is from, but it’s pretty dope production from The Alchemist. The song is also a little bit trippy, with Willie The Kid, Action Bronson and Roc Marciano trading verses about luxurious things and other random strange shit which is hard to absorb in just one listen of the song.
Joey Fatts- For The Bitches Feat. A$ton Matthews (Prod. By Sledgren)
Sledgren always comes correct with his production. His distinctive sound is on “For The Bitches,” and it's mainly what makes the song so nice. Rising rappers Joey Fatts and A$ton Matthews help too, rapping about, well, the bitches. This a nice tune to smoke too, and just chill too, as Joey and A$ton seem to be doing the same.
HNHH's "Underrated Audio" puts you on not-too-mainstream music you might have missed from the past week.
Jay-Z basically dominated the web this past week with the release of Magna Carta Holy Grail and all the interviews and promo that followed. Music-wise, there wasn't much else too major, with releases from the usual suspects like Juicy J and Ace Hood, and even Cory Gunz and Joey Bada$$. While those songs have definitely not been overlooked this past week, Underrated Audio brings you four tracks that got lost in the sea of Hov.
