Yonas

#3 - Yonas ft. Logic - Feels Right

Why does Yonas rock the mic? You might as well ask why birds choose to sing, or why 2 Chainz steals panties from women's clotheslines: “It's something that just Feels Right.” Natural as kicking rhymes might be to the Big...Read More

Tory Lanez

Wondering how much Tory Lane's wardrobe, accessories and ride ran him? You'd be better off, not asking, lest you feel a pang of sympathetic pain in the pocketbook. On That Hurt, the T-dot repper showcases his skills on both...Read More

Novel

#6 - Novel - I Know Now

BANGLADESH

#10 - Bangladesh ft. Pusha T, Jadakiss & 2 Chainz - 100

Mac Miller

#11 - Mac Miller - Onaroll

Not so long ago it would have seemed impossible to hear a white kid from Pittsburgh making a project with hit maker extraordinaire Pharrell, but in 2012 the duo makes a strange sort of sense. Dropping off the first release...Read More

Kid Ink

#12 - Kid Ink - No One Left

In a game full of turncoats, Kid Ink is all about loyalty. As he puts it on the latest single off his forthcoming debut set, "Don't you worry, I'll be here when it's No One Left." Released along with visuals by Grizz Lee,...Read More

Bardo

#13 - Bardo - Level Up

I’m not going lie. When it comes to gaming I’m more of a Super Mario Bros. guy than a Call of Duty guy. My days of pressing a controller until my thumbs were sore ended with Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right,...Read More

Fly Union

#14 - Fly Union ft. GLC - Seen This Before

Ladies, take heed; no matter who you've kicked it with in the past, nothing will prepare you for the sheer playerism of Columbus, Ohio trio Fly Union. On new single Seen This Before, iYeball's slinky synth production sets the...Read More
