18 year old Washington Heights emcee Tav-1 drops his latest mixtape,Land Of The Infidels. This dude knows what the people want; as soon as I heard the Kanye West inspired “Nothing’s Ever Promised,” I knew I was going to dig this project. Land Of The Infidels gives you an insight to the mindset and emotional state of an adolescent becoming a man in a world of nonbelievers. Tav-1 delivers flows centered around conquering self-doubt and all the other drama that comes along with growing up in this crazy society we live in. Land Of the Infidels has a track that speaks for everybody on one level or another; you just gotta listen. Though Tav-1 excels on the conscious tip, he gives the listeners some of that knock with bangers such as “Nothing Move But The Money” and “Searching.” All and all this is a dope project! Be sure to check this project out, and show some love to a yunggin on the rise.

After dropping several bangers which were received with praise throughout the hip hop community, T.Y. has established himself as one of the top emcees to keep an eye on in 2015. When word broke that T.Y. was cooking up a joint project with Chef Byer (a hometown hero in his own right) the heads and bloggers out here on the interweb became very excited. Two artist of this caliber joining forces is something special, and I feel it’s safe to say that this upcoming project will be nothing but beneficial for Canadian hip hop and its growing success. Coming off the success of “Hands Are Tied,” T.Y drops his latest offering, “Hometown Hero.” This joint takes you on a journey through various instances in the past two years of his personal life. The high’s and low’s. Trials and tribulations. Be sure to check this latest joint out, and be on the look out for, The Beautiful Exchange, dropping soon.
After releasing a number of singles this year, it’s no surprise that Diverse Marley is in need of a week long bender to unwind from the grind. The Chicago emcee’s work hard, play hard mentality has led up to a compilation of Diverse’s hardest hitting tracks, influenced by being under the influence. With a dose of wit and a dash of booze, the project is sure to make your Monday feel like a weekend. Check out Diverse Marley’s Prolly Drunk EP, and share your thoughts and comments below.
“This is something special. Something for my brother Ben. Something for me. This is me. If you know me, know I’m prolly drunk. Come see what I see.”
