Avoiding the showdown last week, Wale‘s The Gifted hit stores yesterday (June 25). Already hailed as his finest work to date, Folarin included this West Coast-inspired gem on the Target version of his new album. Mr. Bucket hat himself Dom Kennedy and CTE’s newest soldier YG help smooth things out on this Jake One-produced “Hella.”

Who else but Dom Kennedy to deliver some new music on the official first day of summer? The King of the Summer Playlist returns with a smooth, wavy cut entitled “Never,” produced by The Futuristiks. Get Home Safely is coming sooner than later.

Get your bucket hats ready, people; it’s about to be a Dom Kennedy summer again. Before his eagerly anticipated Get Home Safely album hits the streets beach parties, though, the Westside rapper laces DJ Mustard‘s “Nothin’ Like Me” with his familiar swag-soaked stories. Off the producer’s Ketchup (-___-) mixtape, which you can grab here.

oh no

As if Stereotype, the Statik Selektah-scored album from one of the West Coast’s best kept secrets, Strong Arm Steady, wasn’t worthy of burn in the stereo, fellow Stones Throw alumnus, Oh No, has got his hands on the bulk of the record. Remixing and reducing it, Madlib’s lil bro has birthed Stereo Jr., and like you aren’t already clambering over to the Stones Throw store to order a copy, allow the glitchy refix of “No Sky Limit,” also featuring Dom Kennedy, to provide the necessary persuasion.

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
