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...

Azad Right featuring Harry Hudson – "If I Die" (Produced By HUCCI)

New song from Azad Right with production from HUCCI

Not only have I been a fan of hip hop artist Azad Right, but trap producer HUCCI, and now the pair linked up for a track called "If I Die." Th track also features singer Harry Hudson for a nice hook to complete the track. The introspective track is pretty unique and how this turned out. It's also a more mellow production form HUCCI, who normally creates heavy trap beats. The influences are still there, but I like the versatility he is showing here. You can stream the track below and get a free download here.

Falcon Punch - "Square One"

Stream "Square One" by Falcon Punch

Falcon Punch dropped off a new release called "Square One," a magnificent blend of electronic, house, disco, and some soaring guitars. The music is just so good and honestly, I don't think I've not liked one of his tunes on Soundcloud. I also love the moniker as I find myself shouting "Falcon Punch" like in the Super Smash Brothers game, I feel like I'm not the only one who does that. Or am I? You can stream and download the song below.

GTA Ft. Sam Bruno - "Red Lips"

New GTA track called "Red Lips"

I've featured a few GTA tunes and remixes before, so I know at this point when they release something it is going to be on another level. Their new original is called "Red Lips" featuring Sam Bruno and this does not disappoint. The instrumental is a banger and had me raging out in my seat a bit, I had to recollect myself and calm down. I know what I'll be having on repeat the rest of this week.

Toro Y Moi - "Run Baby Run"

Toro Y Moi's latest single "Run Baby Run"

Towards the end of the day yesterday, I saw a new track from Toro y Moi floating around called "Run Baby Run." The song is off his forthcoming record called What For?, which is out April 7th. The song sort of has a classic alt-pop sound, especially the vocals, yet it also has that Toro y Moi flavor that so many music fans love. Stream the tune below.

Kid Astray - "it's Alright"


Kid Astray released a new single called "It's Alright" off their upcoming new album Home Before the Dark, out June 15th. The six piece indie pop band certainly crafted an infectious hook on this one, which will have you singing along and clapping to the beat within one listen. They also know how to mix it up and add a cool synth breakdown as well (that part might get you dancing). This is one of the highlights of the week, peep it below.

Earl Sweatshirt & Action Bronson - "Warlord Leather"


Yesterday we saw Earl Sweatshirt and Action Bronson both release new albums, which needless to say was a good day for hip hop. In celebration, the duo decided to let out a collaboration track they did called "Warlord Leather," featuring production from Alchemist and a vocal sample of Lou Diamond Phillips. This is a nice bonus track for fans and hip hop heads alike. Stream below.

Astronauts, etc. - "I Know"


It's been awhile since I posted about Astronauts, etc. but he hit up my email with a new track called "I Know." The song has a 70's vibe about it, but is soothing and relaxing all the way through. For this single, I almost feel like this out of body experience as I listen. No, I'm not on drugs. Promise. Stay in school kids. Anyway, as noted in the email:
"The track lands somewhere between Grizzly Bear, The Bee Gees, and Sade. It was recorded with a live band through fully analog gear, mixed and mastered on tape."

Hudson Mohawke featuring Irfane – "Very First Breath"

New song called "Very First Breath" from Hudson Mohawke

Hudson Mohawke returned to Annie Mac's BBC radio show to premier a new song off Lantern called "Very First Breath," featuring French singer Irfane. If you noticed the music that HudMo makes, it's that you really aren't sure what form of electronic you'll hear. Sometimes he has a more trap feel, other times it's a harsh soundscape, and other times it has a bit more mainstream appeal like this one. Stay tuned for more as we approach the release of his record.

GRACE - "You Don't Own Me" ft. G-Eazy

GRACE, "You Don't Own Me" ft. G-Eazy

Australian crooner GRACE released a song a few days ago called "You Don't Own Me" featuring G-Eazy. These two quickly prove to be a winning combo and hopefully they team up on some more music in the near future. Yet, while I came across this track because of G-Eazy, make sure you check out GRACE as she has some serious vocal power. The track mixes in soul, hip hop, and pop, yet almost has a 50's vibe to it as well. This is a cool track.

jackLNDN - "Fooled Around"

Listen to jackLNDN's "Fooled Around"

Since it is Monday, I like having some good dance tunes to get me awake and moving. Here we have the latest from jackLNDN called "Fooled Around," which is a nice blend of chill house and nu-disco. Definetly the kind of track to make your Monday better. This tune is also off his Summer Never Ends EP - Vol. 1, which is free to download. Check out this jam below.

Rick Ross Ft. Jay-Z - "Movin Bass" (GTA Remix)

GTA Remix Rick Ross and Jay-Z

GTA get a bit rowdy on this remix of Rick Ross and Jay-Z's "Movin Bass," but it's a good track to get ready to take on the week. The official release of this remix is not until the beginning of April, but GTA wanted to give the fans a taste of what they are up too. The duo keeps showing their versatility when it comes to combining different genres and turn this hip hop track into the perfect party anthem. Stream it below.

William Bolton - "Far Away"

William Bolton, "Far Away"

One artist who has been emerging in the last year or so is singer, songwriter, and producer William Bolton. His new tune is called "Far Away," which he continues to make that laid back vibe of new mo-town meets soul. Yet, he manages to add some hip hop and pop flavor into each track as well, which all form unique tracks. This song is also only a b-side and still pretty damn good.

"Far Away is a heartfelt track about growing up and missing your loved ones. It's a b-side from the "Love Supreme" project, coming later this year." -Willy B

Years and Years - "Worship"

Stream "Worship" by Years and Years

The UK natives Years and Years are a band it seems that you can't ignore in 2015, nor should you either. Their latest song is called "Worship," which will be on their upcoming album out in June. These guys have a great sound and all the music I've heard by them since mid 2014 has been on point. In fact, there has not be a track I didn't like by this trio. Hopefully, you feel the same way. Stream the tune below.

MNEK – "Suddenly"

Stream "Suddenly" by MNEK

English singer/songwriter MNEK has released a few tunes over the last couple months and he continues that with another called "Suddenly." This track will be on his forthcoming Small Talk EP, which is out tomorrow. His genre crosses between R&B, house, soul, and pop and it has gotten the young singer some serious attention (much deserved).

"Suddenly" is an emotional journey and he hits some crazy notes on this one. It's a mellow ballad, but it showcases his vocals even more. Stream the song below.
