PHRYME [ROYCE DA 5’9 X DJ PREMIER] – PRHYME

Now that ‘PRhyme’, the collaborative album from Royce Da 5’9 and DJ Premier is here in full, we can say for sure that it’s one of our favourite albums this year.  The two have an awesome chemistry, which is only enhanced by guest verses from Mac Miller, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q, Common, Dwele, Jay Electronica, Killer Mike and the…

THELONIOUS MARTIN – WÜNDERKID

After dropping singles ‘Atlantis‘ and ‘Purp Interlude‘, Chicago producer Thelonious Martin releases his ‘Wünderkid’ album.  While his production is on point, by and large, his real skill lies in putting together a crack team of Hip Hop’s most exciting;  Mac Miller, Smoke DZA, Ab-Soul and Domo Genesis to name but a few.  Stream the whole album…

KEMBE X – AS I UNFOLD [FT. AB-SOUL & ALEX WILEY]

We admit it – we completely slept on Kembe X’s self-titled EP, which was released via Scion AV a fortnight ago.  Track number four on the five-track project is the sublime ‘As I Unfold’, which features a verse from TDE’s Ab-Soul and Kembe X’s Chicago cohort Alex Wiley.  The track has now been given the visual treatment, which…

After ‘The Imperial‘ and ‘Carry On’, Statik Selektah releases a third track from his upcoming album ‘What Goes Around’ [August 19].  ‘Alarm Clock’ features verses from Ab-Soul, Jon Connor and Logic, and a hook courtesy of Francesca, all of whom shine over Statik’s laid-back, boom bap production.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

SMOKE DZA – HEARSES [FT. AB-SOUL]

Originally found on his DZA’s ‘dream.ZONE.achieve’ mixtape, the TDE signee releases some new visuals for ‘Hearses’ with labelmate Ab-Soul.  We’re not sure about the fire effect in the video, but the way Soulo provides the perfect counterpoint to DZA’s Pusha-esque flow make this one of our favourite tracks off the mixtape.  Stream below via YouTube.

AB-SOUL – THESE DAYS…

    Ab-Soul’s ‘These Days’ release date is finally upon us, and the album is a constant slew of TDE perfection.  With a list of features as long as your arm (Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, ScHoolboy QMac Miller, SZA, Jay Rock, Lupe Fiasco, Danny Brown, J. Cole…) it’d be easy for Soulo to take a back seat,…
