After a long, hot summer, this month saw Rapper Big Pooh drop his sixth solo album Fat Boy Fresh, Vol. 3: Happy Birthday Thomas, the third in his Fat Boy Fresh franchise. The Virginia native and Little Brother member chases 2012’s Fat Boy Fresh 2: Est. 1980, with a sonically distinct 13-track joint, establishing Pooh as a prolific and current contributor to the scene. Hit the jump for the full review – Spotify album stream included.

Jaren Evan dropped one of our favorite projects of the year so far last month with Boom Bap & Blues, and his visuals are just as nice.

NYC singer Jared Evan dedicates a fittingly elegant, edgy record to one of our favorite pieces of cinema eye candy: Uma Thurman. M.O.P.’s Lil Fame also pitches in with a guest verse, juxtaposing Jared’s gentle croons nicely. Statik Selektah once again finds a new way to add flavor to the tried-and-tested boom bap. Find this on Mr. Evan’s Boom Bap & Blues LP, out February 26.

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.
