If you are a marijuana smoker, you may get into this hazy hip-hop track by rapper Coco Island that gets very deep and then some in “Marijuana Sex, produced by JayB. The song will be out on a forthcoming street album on Recapture Records called Kushy Pussy The Mixtape, so wait for that and drift off to the islands where weed grows nicely all the time.
Ghanaian rapper D’An Musa is not about living the highlife and he wants to exchange his stories and surroundigns with you in a song called “Gorilla”, which has him with Billy Banger. D’An Musa co-produced this with KaySo.
Indie pop duo Villains will be performing at Pianos in New york for the first time on February 20th and they just released their first single. It’s called “Dreamers” and as a group influenced by Karmin, Sia, Foster The People, and Duran Duran, they want to show what they appreciate and their own sound.
Megaran takes his love of video games and 8-bit music into creating a new version of The Fugees’ “Ready Or Not” by turning it into an 8-bit masterpiece, with all Enya melodies intact. It’s not a direct cover, it’s all new lyrics but the instrumental, you should be familiar and the classic “buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta” line is not present but the song holds up brilliantly. The song is being offered with the “Name Your Price” option at Bandcamp, but show support if you like it. The song also features Professor Shyguy, MPRESS and Jermiside.

The self-titled album by New York’s Quarterbacks was released yesterday courtesy of Team Love Records and if you haven’t heard their brand of, you have two ways to listen to it in full for your consideration. Head to Spotify to play it, or check out Bandcamp below, where you’re also able to use the “Name Your Price” option. This means the album is available for free but if you like it, please show some support. Go ahead.
If you know of “The Mexican”, most of you may know of the version by Babe Ruth that has been samplled countless times in hip-hop in the last 35 years. In 2015, The Genius gets a chance to bring in Tom Morello to recreate the vibe in his own way with help from bassist Jose “Choco” Reynoso, keyboardists Isamu McGergor, and guitarists Hanni El Khatib, Dante Cimadamore, and Jerome Wilson Jordan to create something that is hot, funky, and dope all at once. This was recorded during the Dark Matter sessions that will lead towards GZA’s forthcoming album, so it may or may not appear on it. If it does, I’d like to think it’ll be there as a bonus track but you can have it here for free, while supplies last.
Douglas Wooldridge and Patrick Aubry go by the name of Tree Machines and they’re going to release their first EP next month. The self-titled release will feature a song with a title you’re not going to hear on radio anytime soon so you’ll want to know it by title: “Fucking Off Today”. The song may begin with a bit of nice pop textures but keep on listening and the chorus changes the mood a bit. They’re like that with their new EP and they’re hoping fans will be pulled in with this in order to keep them coming for more. “Fucking Off Today” can be streamed or download it for free while supplies last.
Scribbling Idiots may call themselves idiotic but their music and lyrics are not, as you’re about to hear in their new one called “Everything Was Perfect” and making them reach perfection is Ilyas, who you may have known as a member of Tanya Morgan. Together, they make the song nice and fresh.
A dance track perfect for the winter season will turn into a perfect dance track for the spring season, perfect for the summer, perfect throughout the year and even when seasons run out. “Pull Up” is that song done by “8Er$ & Debroka” so for those of you who are into the trap vibe, get loose from its grasp.
