Our boy D.O. is at it again, delivering us his brand new video for “Time Will Tell.” Hooking up with Jake Boyd on the hook and Classified on the beat, “Time Will Tell,” is that classic D.O. sound that we love; positive vibes, positive message and of course, dope bars. As a seasoned vet in this hip-hop game, D.O. has seen it all, and his music speaks for itself. All inspiring emcees out there need to check D.O.’s body of work and take notes; you gotta learn from the greats in order to be great yourself. Check out,”Time Will Tell,” and share your thoughts below.
As we celebrate the start to 2015, Kanye West chose this opportune time to release,”Only One,” a minimal, auto tuned laced track featuring Paul McCartney on the keys. Written from the perspective of Kanye’s late mother Donda, who passed in 2007 from surgery complications, “Only One” sounds like a continuation of Yeezies 808’s & Heartbreak. Rumors of a McCartney/West collaboration began appearing last August, when the two recorded a song allegedly called “Piss on Your Grave” that has yet to surface. All I know is that my wish has been granted; new Kanye music to start off 2015.
Jeezy and T.I bless one of the biggest tracks of 2014 with some fresh verses for DeJ Loaf’s viral hit, “Try Me.” It legitimately feels like DeJ has blown up over night. Since the impact of “Try Me’s” debut, DeJ has been featured on tracks with heavy hitters such as Fabolous, Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan and Eminem; in my opinion this Jeezy and T.I connect is the icing on the cake for blow up rookie season. Looking at DeJ resume, it’s safe to say our girl closed out 2014 with a bang…lets see if she can keep the momentum up in 2015. Peep the track and share your thoughts below.

20 year old Toronto artist Tray is looking to shake the scene up with the release of his latest project ScaTTered. Taking notes from CReW affiliates DillanPonders, SeT and Terrell Morris, Tray looks to make a strong name for himself, presenting one of the more abstract mixtapes I’ve come across ina while. The first time I heard Tray spit was on his feature with SeT in, “Baussin”- I was pretty impressed with what I heard. After listening to ScaTTered front to back…I’m officially a fan and would recommend this tape to anyone looking for that raw hip hop sound. Featuring stand out records Trillium, Oxtta Sxte, Rehabbit, Register, Smooth Operator and Relephants, there’s a track for everybody on this mixtape. Be sure to check it out, and leave your comments below.
