Chicago bedroom producer Mister Lies has teamed up with KNOWER, a Los Angeles-based electronic pop duo. “Magichour” is a tempting little track that nods and nods until it erupts—just before giving listeners a brief respite to recover from the sonic spellbind.
Sorry for the lack of posts this past week, y’all. Take this photo of my graduation cap from today as a token of my appreciation. NEW SHIT NEXT WEEK.
Even though BBG quit the game earlier this year, he’s been (thankfully) dropping some unreleased material since then. Though still no word on the debut full-length that was promised late last year, BBG has been keeping our ears busy (and excited) with previously unheard cuts. Today Nafis dropped his collaborative EP with producer Yuri Beats, and it’s a gem, y’all. Listen and download America Eats Its Babies below:
Longtime collaborators Kool A.D. and Kassa Overall have come together on a wonderful new mixtape that blends their respective styles seamlessly. From Kool A.D.’s blunted and Bay Area-influenced delivery, to Kassa’s boom-bap New York demeanor, this album showcases a melting pot of hip-hop ideals.

Download/Stream Peaceful Solutions via Bandcamp.
Sorry for recent lack of posts, y’all. But good news! YESTERDAY I FINISHED MY LAST COLLEGE FINAL EVER!
