[Audio] Your Old Droog- “Sleepers” (prod. Larry Fisherman)

your old droog

The mysterious New York/Russian emcee Your Old Droog releases his latest single, “Sleepers.” Droog made the internet freeze for a minute with the release of his self titled EP, Your Old Droog. In adition to the fact that no one really knows what this guy looks like, the popular rumor going around is that Droog is secretly Nas rapping under another alias. “Sleepers” is the first track released by Droog that has any industry connection, as the instrumental is produced by Mac Miller, aka Larry Fisherman. Apparently these two artists also have a collaborative track in the works. If you still are skeptical about Droogs true identity the world will know once and for all next month, as he’ll be making his debut performance at Webster Hall in New York City. In the mean time take in “Sleepers,” and add your two cents into the debate.

[Audio] T.Y. – “91′ to Infinity”

91 to Infinity Final

Last time we heard from T.Y. it was when he dropped two big tunes in one day, “Brooklyn Way” and “Let Me Ask You”. Building up momentum as we await this highly anticipated project from him and Chef Byer, T.Y. decided to go in on some classic instrumentals, which definitely got some heads turning. Kicking off #TYTuesdays with a premiere from our friends over at Hip Hop Canada, T.Y. let loose “91′ to Infinity”. A rendition of the classic Souls of Mischief track, “93′ to Infinity”. Now you could be on the fence about it, as some people dislike when classic instrumentals are touched, though when you add someone like T.Y. to the equation, how could you dislike it? The soul, content, mixed in with the overall passion; you know it’s going to come out as something even the ones who created the original track could appreciate. “91′ to Infinity” is one where T.Y. lets the women in his life know, that through the struggles of trying to make it and perfect his craft, sometimes there isn’t always time to be together as much as they’d like.

Lines like “man I’ve been wearing the same t-shirt for six months. I just told my one boss I quit. I’m fed up. Man I’m focused on the bigger picture, I’m painting it with brush strokes of genius. Never running out of brushes to dream with. It’s seamless the way I rip stitches like a seamstress. God damn, I’m going over ya’ll heads with this” show you just where the skills are at. Take in the first of three, “91′ to Infinity” and stay tuned for next weeks drop. I know everyone can relate in a way. If you’re out chasing your dreams especially. Get to know T.Y. a bit more in our recent interview as well. Let me know your thoughts afterwards on T.Y.’s remix to “93′ to Infinity”, because I say other than the original, no one can touch this beat like he did.

“Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free. Tired of seeing black boys killed. Tired of seeing black men killed. No more being numb to it. Made this yesterday. Not gonna wait for the album to put it out. It’s now. peace”.

[Video] Chris Brown feat. Usher & Rick Ross- “New Flame”

chris

As C.B comes closer to the September release of his fourth studio album X, fans are given visals for,”New Flame,” featuring Usher and Rick Ross. It’s crazy that Usher and Breezy are actually on a track together; Mr. Raymond made a cameo in Chris “Loyal” video but who would have thought that a collab would follow. I’m curious to know how many people out there still rock with Breezy. Let us know what you think of this latest effort from the infamous R&B singer.

[Video] Atmosphere- “Southsiders” (Dir.Andrew Melby)

Slug-1-640x426

Atmosphere shows us how the youth gets down these days in the suburbs of southside Minneapolis. Replace gangsters with little kids and fire arms with water guns and the result is this campy, care free video curiosity of Atmosphere and the rest of the Southsiders. I recently saw Atmosphere for the first time when he can through to London music hall for The North Of Hell Tour. Needless to say I’ve caught the bug and really dig the entire project. Let us know what you think of this latest effort, and if you were in attendance for North of Hell.
