Stream Jack Ü's (Skrillex & Diplo) Debut Album

Stream Jack U's debut album

Skrillex and Diplo have been collaborating sometime, but then announced in 2014 of their plans to release an album under the moniker Jack U. Basically, the Internet went nuts for that announcement, as these two are some of the most influential producers in electronic and dance music today. The album is now streaming in full, which you can listen to below. Also, they recently were doing a show for 24 hours straight, streaming on their site, but apparently cops shut it down a few hours short of 24. Lolz.

The Knocks – "Dancing With Myself"

Stream "Dancing With Myself" by The Knocks


Thankfully it is Friday (finally) and The Knocks have delivered a new song called "Dancing With Myself" that we can all enjoy. This tune kicks the smooth electro and funk vibes throughout, but paints a warm Summer picture (Still freezing outside). While I dream of pool parties and lounging outside, this song will have to do until that actual happens. Hopefully we will be hearing a lot more of the knocks in 2015.

The Best Hip Hop Artists of 2015


As we currently are approaching the third month of the new year, I thought it would be interesting to do a feature on the best hip hop artists of 2015. Now, there are a ton of rappers and hip hop artists out there doing big things, whether mainstream or on the indie side, so don't get your panties twisted if you don't see one of your favorites. This is more or less my opinion and also off the top of my head, so I could easily have overlooked someone. If I did, hit the comments below and let me know. Also, there is no actual ranking for these rappers, just some that I think are doing it right in 2015 or will be. These choices came to mind when I think of things like lyrics, productions, attention, and blogs talking about them.


Kendrick Lamar 
New album, became one of the biggest names in hip hop, lyrical, and does what he wants. First single cause a stir, yet still was dope. Now he released one with lyrical vengeance.




Logic
Debut album in 2014, but his name has carried over to the rest of 2015. Name everywhere and when he drops a new track, you know all the blogs scoop it up.




Drake
This is just obvious. Dude pulled a Beyonce and dropped an album out of nowhere, sold over 500k first week and millions of streams on Spotify. Releasing another album in 2015 still, whether you find him whack or not, he is here to stay.




Action Bronson
There is no slowing this guy down, everything he drops is fire and he is working with some of the best producers in the game. You can't deny Bronson in 2015.




G-Eazy
Although G's big year was 2014, this doesn't mean he doesn't deserve to be listed in 2015. While his lyrics aren't exactly crazy, his hustle and work ethic are something to be praised. Plus, his music is still on point.



Skizzy Mars
This New York rapper has been on the verge for a looong time. His indie/rap productions were catching on in the beginning, but now he has continue to improve. Skizzy's moment is so close.




Rae Sremmurd
The duo while coming off gimmicky at first, are killin' it and released a pretty solid album. Not the most lyrical, but they are doing it big and that won't slow down in 2015.




Vic Mensa
The Chicago emcee is one of the more interesting ones to me. He has been experimenting with his sound a lot more and showing some versatility. 2015 will be a big year for him and he is still early in his career.




Azad Right
The homie has been grinding since I started this blog in 2010, but he has continued to progress and grow. His time is coming sort of like how G-Eazy blew up. I can see Azad having similar success.




Joey Bada$$
Crazy how young this kid is and his intensity/flows are crazy. Released his debut and isn't showing signs of slowing down in 2015.




Luke Christopher
Recently signed and still sort of flying under the radar, this kid puts out a hell of a lot of music weekly. Produces, writes, sings, and raps. While 2015 might not be his year to blow up, it's his time to show more dominance and take it to the next level. Def one of the best out and more sites are picking up on it.



Childish Gambino
So many wrote him off in the beginning or thought of him as corny, but I've always dug his sound. Plus, his most recent mixtapes and album show how serious Donald Glover is. Look at the plays and love he gets.




Kanye West
All the constant news about him and his wifey can get annoying, but no denying West's creativity and staying power in music. We'll be hearing plenty more about his new music this year.




GoldLink
Bars, beats, and uniqueness. Plus, the dude is working with Rick Rubin. Enough said.

Jay Ant ft. G-Eazy -"Fully Focused"


Most of us probably first heard Bay area rapper/producer Jay Ant when he linked up on a G-Eazy track, well now it is his turn to make some waves. The new song is called "Fully Focused," which will be on his Blue Diamond Dreams album, due out next month. This one also throws in some bars from G, making this a laid back, vibe out kind of tune. Peep it below.

BMB Spacekid - "FBGM" ft. GoldLink


While I am not to familiar with BMB Spacekid's productions, I am and have been excited about GoldLink's music. Yet, after hearing "FBGM" with both artists, I'm definitely more interested in who BMB Spacekid is and what he is about. Together, these two have a whole different sound when it comes to hip hop. Both do not seem afraid to be unique and not follow a typical formula of the genre, which will prove to be a success for them. GoldLink also recently was discovered to be working with the legend, Rick Rubin. Big things poppin', stay tuned.

Lapalux – "Don’t Mean A Thing"

Stream Lapalux's new track "Don't Mean A Thing"

The ever growing electronic producer Lapalux released a new chill track called, "Don't Mean A Thing." This will be featured on his forthcoming sophomore album, Lustmore, which will be out in the beginning of April. This song was actually first heard on Flying Lotus' BBC Radio 1 program not too long ago, but not finally got the official drop. I'm digging the sounds that Lapalux creates and he explores quite an array of style here.

Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One) - Tuxedo (Album Stream)

Stream Tuxedo's debut album


A few months back a mysterious duo emerged called Tuxedo with some funk/soul/R&B music and it got people talking. We would soon learn that it was a collaboration project between singer Mayer Hawthorne and producer Jake One. Since that time, I really haven't heard too much about it or from them, but then NPR shared a stream of their self-titled debut. The album features 12 tracks and will be available for purchase on March 3rd.

Just Blaze - "Moleskin Conclusion"

Stream "Moleskin Conclusion" from Just Blaze

One of the best hip hop producers and one of the more recognized names in the industry is Just Blaze, who recently let loose a track called "Moleskin Conclusion." The track is just an instrumental that was to be used for some big artists, but for whatever reason were not utilized. So, he let this out for us all to enjoy. This one has plenty of soul and is just a relaxing song that will have you feeling like you are floating in the clouds. A perfect track for your Monday.

Blackbear - Deadroses (Album Stream)

Stream Blackbear's Dead Roses album

A few days ago singer, songwriter, and producer Blackbear released his new album called Deadroses. I've loved his sound since first coming across his music over a year ago and from what I listened to so far, this new project doesn't disappoint. He's always had this cool and slick style to his music, but it always sets a certain mood. There are 10 tracks on this project, which you can stream in full below. Also, make sure to support the homie by purchasing this here.

Fashawn featuring Nas & Aloe Blacc – "Something To Believe In"

Fashawn "Something to believe in" featuring Nas and Aloe Blacc

California's Fashawn had a solid movement going a few years ago, but then it seemed like he sort of faded. Yet, he has been one of the strongest hip hop artists that still basically are underground, but maybe his more recent signing to Nas' label Mass Appeal will make people realize what they have been missing. He returned with a song called "Something to Believe In" featuring Nas and Aloe Blacc on the vocals. Fashawn will also be dropping his new record, The Ecology, next week.

Asher Roth – "Blow Yr Head"

Stream Asher Roth's "Blow Yr Head"

Finally, something new from Pennsylvania rapper Asher Roth called "Blow Yr Head," featuring production from Nottz. It's got plenty of bass for your face and will get those speakers rattling. It's surprising his plays are so low right now. Honestly, I'm not sure how he constantly seems to fly under the radar because he does have some bars, but regardless I'll still post his tunes. Stream the song below.

As I Am - "On My Way (inst.)" & "Uplift My Self"


Hey all, I'm just hear to keep you updated on the world of mysterious music artist As I Am. Recently, As I Am has been on an uploading spree on his soundcloud and youtube account, so I've chosen two new, very different tracks to have you listen to. About two weeks ago, he uploaded two new instrumental tracks to soundcloud that were very emotional and epic as hell. One has since disappeared, possibly to return in a more finished version... who really knows with this guy? But, since that one has disappeared another new and polished song complete with vocals has appeared on youtube.

So, I have one instrumental called "On My Way...". It is one of the more sampled based tracks As I Am has done and seems ideal for a vocalist to vent some very heavy thoughts, but it also stands perfectly on its own two, voicing deep unconscious feelings of solitude and self-searching with no discernible words.

Then I have "Uplift My Self", a song with As I Am on vocals "resurrecting and conjuring up childlike love" and voicing his perspective of America and the world at large. Throughout this track As I Am raps, sings, speaks, and a few things in between overtop of his usual, other-worldy production.

I can hear the growth happening in As I Am and I'm excited to see what's coming next. Listen to these two distinct tracks below.

Kennedy Jones - "Dip"

Stream "Dip" from Kennedy Jones

I needed something energetic on this hump day and luckily we got it from Kennedy Jones on a track called "Dip." Mixing dance and funk into one package, this song got me moving and feeling a bit more awake. Really, you can hear other genres in this too, but they're all fused together to form one great track. If you aren't groovin' around or blasting your speakers to this, then you are doing it wrong. Stream below and get a free download here.
