ANDERSON .PAAK – OXNARD

Anderson. Paak’s new album ‘Oxnard’ was mixed and produced by Dr. Dre.  As such, it positively oozes West Coast.  It’s Los Angeles in the late afternoon heat, it’s palm trees on the eponymous Oxnard Beach, and its sound is every bit as in and of the area as any work of Snoop Dogg or N.W.A. …

SWIZZ BEATZ – POISON

Swizz Beatz’s highly anticipated album ‘Poison’ dropped last week.  Executively produced by the Hip Hop stalwart, the album’s list of features reads like a roll call for the genre’s hottest, with J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, Giggs, Nas, Pusha T all delivering verses.  Singles ‘Pistol On My Side’ and ‘Come Again’ are the obvious…

KANYE WEST & KID CUDI – KIDS SEE GHOSTS

Kids See Ghosts is both the name of Kid Cudi / Kanye West project and the name of their first album together.  The third album in a series of five albums executively produced by West [following ‘Pusha T’s ‘DAYTONA‘ and his solo album ‘Ye‘] follows suit by containing seven songs, and was promised back in…

PUSHA T – DAYTONA

Over the last few years, Pusha T has occasionally hit upon a unique, winning formula. Tracks like ‘Nosetalgia’, ‘Numbers On The Board’ and ‘Crutches Crosses Caskets’ feature beats so stark in their minimalism they’re borderline uncomfortable. While they lurch onward, all eyes are on Push’s tales of dope dealing.  It’s precisely this formula that seems…

CYHI THE PRYNCE – NO DOPE ON SUNDAYS

He may be one of the most underrated MCs around, but CyHi The Prynce’ new album is a surprisingly star-studded affair, with the likes of Pusha T, ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz & Kanye West showing out.  CyHi isl, of course, the star of the show, displaying his usual amount of personality and sharp wit.  After…

LOGIC – BOBBY TARANTINO

After dropping the Pusha T-featured ‘Wrist‘ just a fortnight ago, Logic surprise releases a brand new mixtape entitled ‘Bobby Tarantino’.  King Push is the only featured artist on the eleven track project, which is supposedly the first of two mixtapes to come from Logic before the end of the year.  Stream below via Spotify.

LOGIC – WRIST [FT. PUSHA T]

Premiered earlier this week on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, Logic releases ‘Wrist’; a Pusha T-featured ode to the two artists’ drug dealing past and relentless pursuit of success.  It’s also no doubt also a nod to Chedda Da Connect’s infamous ‘Flicka Da Wrist‘, but let’s not go there. Produced by Logic himself along with 6ix, the…
