Charles Lauste has been making some amazing music so far in 2018 both with his own releases and his production features on other peoples songs, and this afternoon is back with his brand new releases for “Lauste Files Vol. 1+ 2“. Charles Lauste aka DJ Chi is by far one of the best producers in the city, time and time again causally dropping soulful instrumentals that feel like a breathe of fresh air, and these two new joints are certainly no exception. The two production features on these records came from 5th Of Hen and Sherren Olivia, who have be affilited with Chi in the past & I am sure this won’t be the last time you see these three work together. Check outt hese brand new beats below and if you enjoy them be sure to come to Lincoln Hall on December 21st to see Charles Lauste live! Tickets to see Charles Lauste @ Lincoln Hall here!
Detroit group Clear Soul Forces are making their Lyrical Lemonade debut today with their brand new music video for “They Shootin”. I truthfully didn’t know what to expect when I pressed play on this video but I walked away from it glad I gave it a chance, each of the members displayed great lyrical skills in their verses & they all in all created a memorable record. They thought of a creative video concept to compliment their song and it only leaves me eager to hear their full length that’s set to drop at the top of 2019, until that point though press play below!
Muddy Mick is a Chicago artist who has been featured on our website a dozen or more times in the past, and this afternoon he is back with his brand new tune titled “Muddy Vuitton”. It seems like every time Mick drops a song it’s produced by his right hand man Luke Almighty, but I think that they should keep it that way because it’s clear that his best music comes from Luke’s instrumentals, especially when the bass hits as hard as it does here. It’s an extremely quick listen coming in at just over a minute in length, so there’s no reason to not give it a chance below!
Meek Mill is in serious consideration for album of the year for many people this year, he had plenty of things to speak about so he linked up Big Boy so they can discuss everything that has been going on in his life. He spoke about everything such as his brand new album, how he thought of the cover, ending the beef with Drake, his thoughts on the 6ix9ine situation, prison reform, teaching people through his music, social media, his childhood, some of the people he met in prison, speaking to Kanye West, being a leader in the community, his upcoming tour, performing on Jimmy Fallon and much more. Check out this brand new interview below!
While I was browsing through Soundcloud this afternoon I came across Defcee’s brand new tape titled “A Mixtape As God Intended, Vol. 1″ and I instantly felt the urge to share with our readers. This project is twenty minutes of top tier lyricism provided by Defcee over some classic instrumentals and jam packed with skits from some of the biggest names in hip-hop giving high praise to him. This mixtape just gets better and better with every switch up, just when I am starting to get into his verse the beat switches up and he continues the stellar rhymes. Enough talking about it though, give it a spin for yourself below!
Chicago native Qiyah Abdul is making her Lyrical Lemonade debut today with her brand new record titled “Back to You” featuring Alton N The Flesh. You will find the two emcees going back and forth in their verses, literally telling a story and speaking to each other in perfect harmony, and they each had their own minute or so to provide a solo verse. The vocal performance from Qiyah Abdul was truly impressive, she gained a new fan today and I am sure I won’t be the only one, check out this brand new song below!
Lil Aaron has gained a somewhat cult like fan base over the past few years and has made quite the name for himself with his stellar past releases, and late last night he dropped a brand new record for his fans titled “Dark Matter”. Along with this release Lil Aaron was fully transparent as he added “i got my heart shattered” to the bio of the track, and that’s definitely the mindset he was in when he produced and recorded this song, but sure enough he managed to make it into a beautiful offering that you don’t want to miss out on. Stream this brand new record below and if you like it be sure to give him a follow on Twitter here!
Atlanta star Yung Bans has been one of the hottest artists to blow up in 2018, and tonight he is back with his brand new music video for “Did That Did That”. Yung Bans has one of the most uniques voices & styles that make it easy for listeners to gravitate toward him, and this new joint is one of his best releases to date if you ask me, he slowed down the pace a little bit but left plenty of gems in his verses. Take a few minutes of your day to check out this awesome new visual below! Directed by Fresco Filmz
