[Audio] Ayah and Slakah The Beatchild- “Keep Up” (Prod. Slakah The Beatchild)

What a pleasant surprise this was to wake up to; Slakah The Beatchild collaborated with Toronto songstress Ayah to bring us their latest song Keep Up. A nine minute and twenty eight second pleasure for our ears, this isn’t the same R&B/Soul music we have come to expect from Slakah and Ayah, Keep Up has an old school garage sound and just a few lyrics like “catch me if you can” sprinkled throughout the song. I love it and I’m curious to know what you think. Check out the song below on bandcamp and if you like support by purchasing it.

When we can, we love giving music away for free simply for the pure love and desire to spread real music, uninfluenced by a label, industry or pop culture, but if you like this one, please purchase it, thank you.

[Audio] Jay Electronica – “Dear Moleskine” (Prod: Just Blaze)

Jay Electronica @ Manifesto

The full version of Jay Electronica’s “Dear Moleskine” just dropped, nearly three years after a demo for the track originally surfaced. You might remember seeing a video promo for it back in 2009 (check it out below). Produced by Just Blaze, “Dear Moleskine” is very instrumental-heavy, and only features one verse of Jay rapping. Of course, this is the same duo responsible for “Exhibit C”, so anytime I hear these two names together I get excited. For more on Jay Electronica, check out Chedo’s interview with him from last year. Stream the full song and watch the 2009 promo below.

[Album] David Dallas & Forty One – Purple Tinted

Originally, I had planned to speak on just one track from Purple Tinted, called Make Up. Although, after listening to the album in full I believe the entire work deserves the shine. Purple Tinted is a remixed version of David Dallas’ 2011 release of The Rose Tint Album. Remixed entirely by Forty One, Purple Tinted projects a great new feel to the entire album and unlike most remixed records, it sounds amazing and takes nothing away from the original records, in terms of intent and meaning. A few highlight tracks for me were Make Up, John’s Postcard, & Ain’t Perfect, the album is on Forty One’s Bandcamp page, which is available for download, you choose the price style. This is truly a great remixed album, so dont sleep. Streams of the entire album is down below for your enjoyment.

[Album] Richard Wright – “Open Minded”

Richard Wright, the South Central LA native, makes his solo debut on Open Minded. The entire album is produced by fellow SoCal producer J. Bizness, who perfectly crafts the beats to suit Wright’s laid-back flow. Notable features include Phonte on “♥” (track 13), and Stik Figa on “Yeah Right” (track 14), both strong tracks. Stream and purchase Open Minded below on Bandcamp.

From Wright’s Bandcamp page:

The concept behind Open Minded is the willingness to accept what is new or different than what you may be used to.
Being Open Minded is being able to agree that you disagree.

[Video] Stalley- “Everything New” (Dir: Rik Cordero)

MMG signee Stalley drops the visuals for Everything New, his first single off his latest mixtape, Savage Journey To The American Dream.

Also check out our interview with Stalley, here.

[Audio] Azad Right – “Intuition” (Prod: sy.ic)

Azad Right was first recognized at a Def Jam rap star videogame release party in 2010. From there he went on to open for Method Man and Redman, Tinie Tempah, Phonte & 9th Wonder, Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar, and more recently The Game and Slaughterhouse. With this new track “Intuition”, Azad is trying to make that jump from opening act to headliner. Right speaks about heartbreak and trusting your intuition over a smooth beat produced by sy.ic who samples Jamie Woon’s “Spirits”. I am really feeling this song and I hope to hear more like it from this California kid. Listen to and download “Intuition” below.

“My story is something that people should know about. Hip-Hop culture has grown so much and I’m living proof. Ten years ago, an Iranian-American rapper was an impossible career choice. In 2012, I plan to make it my reality.”

[Video] Drake ft. Rihanna- “Take Care” (Dir: Yoanne Lemoine)

I wouldn’t expect back to back music video releases for HYFR and Take Care but that’s what happened. Covering Gil Scott Heron’s Take Care, Drake recruited Rihanna for the 2011 single. Check out the video below.
