HNHH's "Underrated Audio" puts you on not-too-mainstream music you might have missed from the past week.
As you transition from summer to fall, whether that involves updating a playlist, updating a wardrobe, or back in the school/word grind, these songs should help make the changeover easier. The whole back-to-school-time is promising to bring in just as good music as the whole it's-summer-time. What with Freddie Gibbs' Baby Face Killa having dropped today, Murs & Fashawn dropping a studio LP today, plus Boaz dropping a mixtape on Friday, Lloyd dropping a mixtape in the near future as well, it seems your playlist won't be lacking for the next season. And that's just the UA-mentioned-artists, there's actually a ton of albums you should be excited to hear this autumn.
Rostrum Records' newest singee is quickly making a name for himself. The Pittsburgh native now calls Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa his label mates, so why not team up with one for his first release via Rostrum. His mixtape Bases Loaded drops this Friday, and this latest leak off it tells everyone what Boaz is about (this probably comes as no suprise-- it's the money), over a catchy beat nonetheless.
This was such a dope re-work of Kendrick Lamar's “Swimming Pools” song, probably the only one I actually want to listen to apart from the original. Lloyd manages to make it his own song and we forget about K. Dot's flow over the instrumental, even though he sings the hook from the original. It becomes this R&B jam when August (Lloyd's artist) and Lloyd take it over. This song actually got sufficient clicks but I still feel like Lloyd is underrated as an R&B artist, and his up-coming talent, August Alsina, is also impressive.
Action Bronson- It's Me
I haven't heard anything from AB in a minute, and out of seemingly nowhere, he dropped off a new track with frequent collaborator/producer Party Supplies. I can best describe the beat as reminiscent of some tropical/Little Mermaid shit, with the drums and what not. As usual, Bronson spits some randomness about his life.
Murs & Fashawn- This Generation Feat. Adrian
Murs & Fashawn released the title track off their joint album, This Generation, which actually drops today via Duck Down Music. Murs and Fashawn exchange bars over the guitar laced beat, produced by Beatnick & K-Salaam. The two West Coast rappers don't shy away from socially conscious material as they spit about “This Generation.”
