The moment Source4prez’s new single “Records Like This” started, I knew I would love it: the sampled, piano-fueled jazz beat filled with muted trumpet and the line, “Records like this don’t sell but it’s OK ’cause Imma keep doin it.” It’s catchy as hell and sounds like a straight up lost gem from the 90’s by Digable Planets or The Pharcyde. This is apparently Source4Prez’s first project too – his Rhyme and Reason mixtape having just dropped in July. I can’t speak for the whole album, but “Records Like This” is definitely a track I suggest listening to. Check it out below.
The D.C. artist known as F.A.M.E. dropped the track “Troublesome ’16” last month. The single pairs pensive lyrics with an upbeat energy while the title pays homage to Tupac’s “Troublesome ’96”. We’re at a difficult moment in human history as F.A.M.E. pulls our attention toward the pressing issues of the day. Listen to “Troublesome ’16” below…
The claim “Summer Anthem” by Young Gunna for his new track “COLDER” is a bold one. And although Summer may technically be over soon, around here in the Valley of the Sun, we still have about two months worth of 100+ degree days left – plenty of time to “bump this in your whip when you cruising”. And bump it I have. Light synth keys begin this uplifting track before Young Gunna comes in sounding both relaxed yet confident. Only 19 years old, Young Gunna aims “to pave a new lane for artists out of the Raleigh area and North Carolina.” I think he’s doing just that. Give “COLDER” a listen below to see if it’s your new Summer anthem.
