[Mixtape/Video] ANTHM – “When We Were Kings”

Manhattan artist ANTHM recently dropped his latest mixtape, the 90s-themed When We Were Kings. This is the first I’ve heard of ANTHM, and I’m already excited for his future. Dude sounds like a hybrid of Blu and Kendrick Lamar (high praise), and can definitely spit. His style is reminiscent of J. Cole on The Come Up mixtape: straight hunger. Early favourites are “Move Me”, “Play On, Playa”, and “Can I Live”. Download the mixtape below and check out the video for “Can I Live”, a nod to the Black Rob & The L.O.X. track, below.

[Video] Travi$ Scott – “Lights (Love Sick”) Prod: Travi$ Scott

I don’t know all that much about this Houston native, but his Owl Pharoah EP is said to be coming soon and after hearing a few tracks, I’m excited. Travi$’ production and style reminds me of Kanye and his laid-back flow is reminiscent of old Cudi. I see a lot of potential in Travi$ Scott and the rumours of a potential G.O.O.D music signing would not come as a surprise. Get a feel for his music (production and direction) with his visuals to “Lights (Love Sick)” and then take a listen to the track “16 CHAPELS” streamed below. Remember to check back for that Owl Pharoah EP.

[Mixtape] Ace Hood – “Starvation”

Just released, Ace Hood reminds everybody of his raw rhymes and hard hitting beats with his latest mixtape. “Starvation” features guest appearances from the likes of The Game, Ice Burg & Kevin Cossom who lend their talents to the project on a few tracks. Majority of production comes from The Renegades who give the mixtape that ‘Ace Hood‘ sound that his fans love. As well, The Monarch has production on two tracks titles “Piss Em Off” and “We On” which were two of my early favorites from my time with the mixtape so far. Listen & Download is available below.

[Audio] Diggy Simmons – “What You Say To Me” (J. Cole Diss)

As far as rap beef goes, this one is the strangest I’ve seen in awhile. After J. Cole mentioned Diggy in “Grew Up Fast“, saying “You more Diggy, me, I’m more Biggie/ No diss to the young boy, I’m just rapping, get bored quickly,” Diggy took exception and finally responded with “What You Say To Me”. Among Diggy’s more direct disses:

“Who dat, who dat, you know who it is/ Heard you lyin on my sis, tellin people that you hit/ When your album drops, I’mma hit you with your bricks/ So I’mma bomb first on you since you wanna riff.”
“Little n***a named Cole think he live like me/ Jet-setter, trendsetter, yeah you not like me/ Can’t find a girl you know that do not like me/ Can’t find a girl I know, who know you, you dumb fool.”

I’m still trying to get my head around why Diggy would go after Cole, who is leagues ahead of him. At least he chose the timing right, he could always play it off as an April Fool’s prank and save himself the humiliation. Stream and download the song below. Photo credit to Meredith Truax.

[Audio] Ellis- “Original Manz” (Prod: by Legin)

Two days ago, Ellis dropped a single from his upcoming summer project entitled The Education of Ellis, or EOE for short. Original Manz is a great single, featuring a rich beat produced by Legin, with solid flow that compliments the sample from Nas’ If I Ruled The World very tastefully in my opinion. This single definitely has my interest in Ellis and i look forward to hearing more from the Baltimore emcee later this year.

[Video] M-Phazes ft. Brown Bag AllStars- “What It’s All About” (Dir: MonStar Films)

There’s something about a posse cut that, when done right, is just undeniably dope. Australian hip-hop producer M-Phazes recently teamed up with New York’s Brown Bag AllStars and dropped the video for “What It’s All About”, one of the tracks off his latest remix album, Phazed Out. M-Phazes crafts a funky, head-nodding beat for the Brown Bag AllStars to rap circles around. These guys definitely live up to their name in the video, with 40oz bottles everywhere. If you’re a follower of Grind Time or KOTD, you’ll recognize Soul Khan as one of the Brown Bag crew.
