Hannibal King has been one of my favorite producers for a minute. Best known for his beat tapes Villains Gone Bad, the Queens artist has been supplying instrumentals for emcees for years. When you’re this good at making beats, it would be a shape not to rock a few yourself, right? Well here it is. Floral Print is the debut project from Hannibal King. The 14 track project is full of soul samples, hot bars and comic book references that rap nerds will eat up. Be sure to check out Floral Print. And if your an emcee looking for some beats, be sure to check out his previous Villains Gone Bad series.

ATL’s Raury has been turning a lot of heads the past few months. Earlier in August, the ATLien released two videos for, “Cigarette Song and and “Indigo Child,” both which generated 70 thousand plus views in just a matter of weeks, and gained the attention of none other than Kanye West who flew the younging out to meet him. For those who have been wanting to hear more music from this cat, the wait is over as Raury releases his debut project Indigo Child. Raury has a very unique style. The mash up of acoustic guitars, hip hop drums and synths make Raury’s style hard to define, all I know is that it is dope! Be sure to check this LP out, and witness a star in the making.
“I’ve been in ten countries so far this year. Since I was on the road so much, I wanted to come back home for the summer. Coming home is when you get a chance to connect with family and friends, its also a chance to get back in the booth.

WORLD PREMIERE!!! We’re very proud to present a project by one of our own today, as the good homie M-Bomb drops his latest mixtape, A Story No One Told. The Waterloo emcee calls this his “most personal release to date,” and appropriately for such an introspective project, the mixtape is mostly feature-free, with the exception of a guest verse by emcee/producer A-Fos (who also mixed the project) on “Boom/Get Out The Way.”
Production-wise, M-Bomb does double-duty on “How The Story Begins” and “While You Were Sleeping,” with the remainder of the mixtape sampling from a number of the “most influential producers and artists” in his lifetime: classics from DJ Premier, Kanye West, Just Blaze, Exile, and Nottz Raw are all there.
Along with the release, M-Bomb has teamed up with a number of talented visual artist friends to create one-of-a-kind pieces of art for each song. The ten canvas pieces will be auctioned off next Saturday at his mixtape release party, with all proceeds going to UNITY Charity.

Earlier this month Kassim Rite dropped his first single, “Spaceman.” Keeping up with his grind, The Come Up Show is proud to drop the release of Kassims Ep, “Spaceman.” As a rapper/singer/dancer/song writer, Florida artist Kassim Rite brings a variety of talent to the table. The Spaceman EP consits of futuristic instrumentals, clever word play and a swag that the young emcee has spent years perfecting.
Along with the banger, “Spaceman,” Kassim shines on his remix of Chris Brown and Kid Ink’s,”Show Me.” I’m just going to throw it out there, I prefer Kassim’s take over the DJ Mustard beat. The 5 track EP gives you a sneak preview of what the Mr. Rite can offer. Be sure to check this project out!
