joey badass

No shade to the kid, but this is the first time I’ve really heard Joey Bada$$ go in on a track. Produced by Lee Bannon, “95 Til Infinity” is the second track off Joey’s upcoming Summer Knights project, out July 1.

casey veggies

Casey Veggies keeps the good music coming with this smooth, introspective new cut, “Money Don’t Buy Time.” In related news, young Veggies has put his joint tour with Travi$ Scott on hold (sorry!). The good news, however, is that he’s recently signed on with Puma as a brand ambassador. Life changes, indeed.

Bannon took “SLNGBNGrs” from York and works his magic per usual.

We’ve already heard “Sumo” from Super Helpful, the makeshift trio of Chuck Strangers, Lee Bannon and Kwame3000, but now here’s another helping in the shape of “Lawns,” featuring Chuck’s Pro Era pals Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight and CJ Fly. You may recognize it as the closer on Pro Era’s recent PEEP: The aPROcalypse mixtape, but it’s also arguably the standout cut on Super Helpful’s The Help EP, which you can stream in full here.

A surprising, but very welcome, trio of hip-hop talent has merged. Super Helpful is comprised of Sacramento beatmaker Lee Bannon, Pro Era producer/MC Chuck Strangers and rapper Kwame, who formally introduce themselves with this initial–and rather incredible–track, “Sumo.” MF DOOM semblance, obscure samples and muffled melancholy; this is nothing short of what we’d expect from the three. Let’s hope this is the first helping of Super Helpful.

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.
