This time around I wanted to do things differently. Instead of posting various links of the tracks on my playlist I simply created a playlist on Soundcloud for everyone’s listening pleasure. I know, I know. You can thank me later no big deal.
If you want to, go ahead and listen the playlist below. You’ll find a short breakdown of each track at the bottom of the page.
- Play by Maurice Moore (Prod. Maurice Moore)
Calling all R&B fans step this way because I found a track you will truly appreciate. Maurice Moore draws us in with a delicate intro, then he comes in cooing over the beat. When it drops don’t be taken aback by his homage to Rupee’s “Tempted to Touch” just enjoy it, ok?
2. Lottery by Michael Aristotle (Prod. Wili Hendrixs)
This is one you’ll wanna play with the windows down while your cruising. You know, when you’re just trying to flex your music. Everybody does it. This guy, Michael Aristotle, knows how to make radio singles. I’m ready for the stations to start picking him up.
3. April 28th by B Jet (J Cole Cover)
B Jet is bringing that real. Raw, unfiltered, and personal thoughts are laid down for us with this J Cole cover. He’s not afraid to say what needs to be said. My favorite lines from the track: “Let your dreams run free, you gotta find your wings. Stay true to you, and watch the joy it brings.”
4. G.A.F. by Matt Jay ft Essi (Prod. COMPLX)
Looks like Matt Jay had to let somebody know he doesn’t give a, you know, with this track. Featuring Essi, the two drop bars over a beat produced by COMPLX. Maybe this means a follow up mixtape is in the works for Matt Jay? We’ll see.
5. Good Intentions by Deante’ Hitchcock
I’m not too familiar with this artist, but I like what I’m hearing on this track. He’s got quite the buzz surrounding the release of his project GOOD, which will be dropping in a few days on May 29th. Until then make sure you check out this track out.
6. Livewire by RBT JNS (Prod. Enkore Beats)
Starting out with what I’m sure is the beginning to a gospel song, RBT JNS provides a sound that only he can create. It’s about 2 minutes long, but it’s enough to do the job. RBT JNS is a part of The Tribe Akashic. Trust me, you wanna get to know this guys flow.
7. Steph Curry by Konspiracy
If you’re into east coast rap I think you’ll really appreciate the flow Konspiracy’s got going here. He dropped this freestyle a few days ago along with another single on Soundcloud. It’s worth a listen, or two.
8. With You by Kindness ft Kelela
Bass guitar intro? Don’t mind if I do. Voice that’s reminiscent of Sade? I say again, don’t mind if I do. I’m feeling the usage of instrumentation throughout the production as well. Over all this is definitely a track that I’ll be adding to other playlists for myself.
9. LoveStruck by Nai Br.XX ft Caleon Fox (Prod. Sensei Bueno)
Her voice is, for the lack of a better phrase, music to my ears. Sensei Bueno’s production compliments the two artists very well, and it helps that it’s a love song. Ya’ll know those are my favorites!
