uno hype

He may be a newcomer out of Maryland (hardly a hip-hop hotspot), but Uno Hype has already nailed down a very polished sound. The MC recruited some impressive names, like Joey Bada$$, Smoke DZA and CJ Fly, for April’s Fxck The Hype mixtape, and his next release, Lxve You All, is looking like it’ll follow suit. For its first single, “100 Feet Up,” Hype links up with another smalltown hero XV as well as Erick Arc Elliott of Flatbush Zombies. Production outfit Odd Couple (who handle the entire production duties on the EP) craft a vast sonic backdrop to give flight to the trio’s bars. We’re loving Lxve You All already.

XV Popular Culture

Having teased us with leaks like “Andy Warhol” featuring Slim The Mobster and the ScHoolboy Q-assisted “AaaHH! Real Monsters” (see below) over the past few days, indie rap favorite XV delivers his latest – and perhaps finest – free project with Popular Culture. Much like his 2011 mixtape Zero Heroes, Vizzy has locked down both impressive mainstream and underground features, as B.o.B., Xaphoon Jones and Emilio Rojas also contribute alongside Slim and Q. Stream and download Popular Culture in full after the jump.




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.
