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...

The Knocks featuring Fetty Wap & Powers – "Classic" (Remix)


Production duo The Knocks released "Classic" last year, but revived it with a new spin and additions of Fetty Wap along with vocals from Powers. The electro-dance tune was a favorite of mine when this was first released and now this new version breathed some new life into it once again. This is also the perfect weekend anthem to get you in weekend mode. Thanks dudes!

Teen Daze - "Along"

Teen Daze - "Along"

It's a bit overcast and cloudy in my area. so I was looking for a mellow tune to fit the vibe of the day. Luckily, Teen Daze's latest track called "Along" is the perfect fit and was just what I was looking for. The producer also released two versions of this single, which you can stream both below. The song has some brilliant instrumentation, mixing in electronic, ambient, and even some psychedelic. The single will be on his upcoming album Morning World, which is due out in August.

Chet Faker featuring Banks – "1998"


Australian native Chet Faker teamed up with LA artist BANKS for a new collaboration song called "1998." The song was originally released on Faker's debut album Built On Glass, which was released last year. Yet, he has returned with a new take on it which should do quite well like the original release. The collaboration was premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 program, and the official, high-quality version is now available for streaming below. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Hayden James - "Something About You" (ODESZA Remix)


When it comes to music from ODESZA, I'm rarely worried that it will be anything but spectacular. Whether it is original material or remixes, I've always dug the production. Now we find the production duo remixing Hayden James' track "Something About You" and they perfectly give the song a new sound. The electronic anthem is a perfect way to get threw this Monday, so be prepared for some repeat plays below.

Disclosure - "Moving Mountains" ft. Brendan Reilly


The UK brother duo Disclosure are looking to turn heads once again with their new album and to get you ready, they teased another single called "Moving Mountains" featuring Brendan Reilly. For the duo, this is a bit of a different sound as they went into a more relax sound instead of the more dance/house vibes that blew them up. Yet, the smooth production and the R&B vocals are a nice touch, but stream below and let us know what you think. The new album, Caracal, is out in September.

Carnage - "I Like Tuh" ft. ILoveMakonnen, Lil Wayne, & G-Eazy (Remix)

Anytime something new from Carnage comes out, you know you are in for a treat. His latest release is a remix of "I Like Tuh," which features an interesting mix of guests: ILoveMakonnen, Lil Wayne, and one of my favorites, G-Eazy. The song is heavy on the EDM and trap elements, but of course it quickly becomes a unique hip hop jam with all involved. You can stream the track below and don't forget to turn the volume up.

Vic Mensa x Skrillex x Jahlil Beats - "No Chill"


Chicago rapper Vic Mensa is one of the more interesting artists in hip hop right now, because he hasn't been afraid to blend genres. "No Chill" is no exception with the features of DJ superstar Skrillex and producer Jahlil Beats, which find the production blending hip hop and EDM perfectly. Mensa is currently prepping the release of his major label debut album and so far his singles are proving this album will be something special. You can stream "No Chill" below.

Major Lazer and MØ Cover Frank Ocean's "Lost"

Major Lazer cover Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean's "Lost" is one of my favorite songs by the R&B singer, so when I saw that Major Lazer and covered it, I wasn't sure what I was going to hear. Yet, it was a pleasant surprise because I loved the direction they took on this cover, mixing the Major Lazer electronic and reggae flavors with the crisp female vocals. I'd say they did this song justice and kept the tone to match the original, so if you were expecting some crazy dancehall and EDM cover, you'll have to look elsewhere. Stream below and you can also snag a free download while it is still available.

The Chainsmokers - "Waterbed" ft. Waterbed


New York production duo The Chainsmokers have been on a streak with their new original material, especially as they continue to develop and found their sound. The latest from them is called "Waterbed," which follows up the recent "Roses." While not a heavy dance track, the cool electronic production and the female vocals still make an enticing tune to shake it to. Oh and you might be wondering why the song title and the guest feature on the song are the same, well according to The Chainsmokers:

"Why is the name the same as the featured artists. Well Waterbed wrote the top line for this and well given the hook it really didn't make any sense to call it anything else, and its a cool name! Also fyi waterbed the band is a boy and girl who also date, they work out of LA and kick fucking ass!!!"

Lawrence Taylor - "Bang Bang"

Lawrence Taylor "Bang Bang"

Current London resident singer and songwriter Lawrence Taylor released a new single called, "Bang Bang," which I think has a ton of appeal to blow up. Now, the single was released a month ago via his Soundcloud, but now is officially a part of the New Music Friday collection on Spotify, which is a great look. The song is blend of pop, indie, and even hints of soul with the vocals, but I can see Taylor being a part of the next wave of great singer/songwriters in his genre. Stream the song below.

Future - "Where Ya At" Ft. Drake

Future featuring Drake "Where Ya At"

Whether you like Future or not, you can't deny the artist makes hits. He has had numerous singles reach the top of the charts and now he's ready for his latest, "Where Ya At" featuring Drake will do the same. He is releasing his third album, Dirty Sprite 2, at midnight tonight in both physical and digital. The album features 18 tracks and out of all of them, this is the only one with a guest. I actually been liking artists who have been doing this as it takes the focus off the amount of features and it's more about that individual artists work. Stream below.

Fine Print - "About You"

Fine Print "About You"

Fine Print is the latest coming from London that Zane Lowe has given some shine to, which has quickly given them some attention. The single "About You" will be on their upcoming debut self titled EP due for release on the 28th of August on B3SCI. It's a very relaxed production with pop, jazz, and electronic elements as the soul vocals hook you. Plus, there is a sweet saxophone solo, which I think we need to hear more of from bands. Give the record a spin below.

Lion Babe - "Impossible"

Lion Babe "Impossible"

Lion Babe is an interesting duo, who bring a different type of sound to music, which is evident on their most recent track, "Impossible." The New York City pair will have this song officially available for purchase on July 24th, but for now released the single on their Youtube channel. The tune is a blend of pop, some electronic, and a hint of R&B. It's catchy right away and has an upbeat bounce to it, which could fit in at a club or a random party. Stream the single below.

G-Eazy - "Oh Well"

G-Eazy "Oh Well"

G-Eazy is still looking to take over the hip hop world and continues to drop some new music for his fans. The latest song is called "Oh Well," with production from Illmind and additional touches from his go to producer Christoph Andersson. This song has a menacing sound and more minimalist in approach, but is another banger to add to his arsenal. This one should resonate with fans and hip hop heads. Listen to the track below.
