Whether you like him or not, you have to respect Mac Miller‘s open approach to trying something new — especially as a mainstream rapper with a No. 1 album under his belt. Mac definitely goes leftfield on “S.D.S.,” the glitchy, Flying Lotus-produced first single from his upcoming album, Watching Movies with the Sound Off. Don’t mess with the volume on this one, though.

One of our favorite new artists outta Chicago (scratch that, outta anywhere) Kami de Chukwu brings us some new goodness today by finally gifting “Anna Nicole Smith.” The Save Money MC laces Flying Lotus‘ mousy “Putty Boy Strut” like it was crafted for himself, transitioning between hearty verses and a melodious hook with ease. Kami’s sophomore mixtape, Smoke — the follow up to last year’s Light — is coming this Spring.

 

In case you missed it, read our interview with Kami de Chukwu here, where he talks Smoke, Save Money, Chief Keef and Chicago hip-hop.

December happened this weekend, you know. And in the off-chance that the familiar seasonal tunes, cringeworthy commercials and this shitting cold weather haven’t zapped your Christmas spirit, you should be feeling pretty generous right now.

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.
