A collection of new Hip-Hop singles from this year that I think vibe well with the summertime and are just great songs in general. Hope you enjoy some new music, and check out my breakdown below to find links to some free mixtapes, all of them FIRE and that’s a guarantee y’all
Bona-fide stoner shit up until track 7,
last few tracks are some real bass knocking fuckers, pump this shit with care
Unabridged Version: The track-by-track breakdown
Start this fatass summer hip-hop playlist with ActionBronson ex-chef of Queens, New York. This track, likely titled for its date of recording, is fucking dope. Thank producer Party Supplies for the flyass beat with an incredible change of tempo half way through and don’t sleep on Bronsons always humorous and classic flow. If you even like this song a little, go download the FREE mixtape it helms from, Blue Chips, entirely produced by PartySupplies.
Next up is the Amaze 88 produced track off Kool ADs 51 Mixtape. If you haven’t heard of Das Racist, fulfill your googling duties, flex your youtube muscles and get acquainted. Kool AD returns to his Bay area roots for this tape and brings in Main Attrakionz (who kills this beat) for an incredibly chill and head-boppable tune. Also a great FREE mixtape to cop if you like the track
NEXT: Joey Bada$$. This kid most definitely is Badass. listen to this song, it isn’t from the 90s and has no right in 2012, but it is. Straight out of the 90s, 17-year old Brooklyn native is blowing up by reviving the boom-bap stylings of hip-hop’s post-golden era and pulls it off damn well on his also FREE mixtape, 1999.
A.dD+ are the Boyz’ favorite new southern duo. They are like reincarnated Outkast, hopefully they’re down to release like 10 amazing albums into this next decade….. They’ve got a lot of singles and an album for download for FREE on their Soundcloud
THE RECIPE::: if you haven’t heard this shit……… like damn. This is a new Dre banger and he’s not even the star, step aside because Kendrick steals this motherfuckin show (and he probably wrote Dres verses too). This is the first single from Kendrick’s upcoming album Good Kid, Mad City due out this fall.
peep the production on this Kate Boosh Shit….. fuck yes. The other half of Das Racist, Heems brings in childhood friend Mike Finito to produce his entire Nehru Jackets mixtape (yes, its FREE). such a fantastic sample flip… and Despot’s verse at the end is epic as usual.
Rap game Taylor Swift is Kitty Pryde… self-proclaimed hip-hop troll, she’s pretty polarizing among hip-hop fans. Decide for yourself, and don’t be too quick to judge Riff Raff’s verse; another enigmatic character born of the internet (so many music videos), but also my new favorite white-trash rapper. He’s incredible. Really.
Outdoorsmen. Meyhem Lauren has always brought mad game to every Bronson project, straight hard hip-hop-ass flow peep this FREE mixtape for some great gangster shit, oh and another fantastic Despot verse here.
Okay okay now we’re getting into some heavy shit, Big Beast by Killer Mike is a fucker of a truck featuring T.I. and Bun B with some straight up and down stellar verses on incredible production by El-P. Oh and this song also happens to have the BEST music video of the year by far, it’s on some straight Tarantino shit
FUCK A PISS TEST. Great dubby production by A-Trak for Juicy J and Danny Brown to go in over.. thx 4 th bss
the FULL RETARD: this song knocks. in the future. and now. El-P is no joke my favorite rapper of hip-hop. Since his groundbreaking effort in Company Flow (FuncrusherPlus=myfavoritealbumever) in the 90s to his brand new album Cancer 4 Cure (and entire production credits on Killer Mike’s new album) he’s been defining the underground scene for almost two decades. And I mean jesus christ just listen to this song?!
Lastly a Remix done by Seattle-natives Shabazz Palaces on a Spank Rock song. Don’t really know much about Spank Rock, but I love Shabazz and this remix is crazy sick.
