Max B tribute-ish. Nice to hear Lucki trying to experiment a little, for a while it sounded like he plateaued into making the same song over and over again.

Another Treated Crew member I’ve apparently been sleeping on. I should probably check out last year’s Glory.

The original version of Maxo 187 is one of my favorites from this year, so this is most welcome.

Kamasi Washington’s Epic is by far my favorite album of the year at the moment, so this is a must. Details below.

Kamasi Washington (saxophone) and Miles Mosley (bass) improvise a tune live in Cosmic Zoo studios before having a long conversation with Intuition on the Kinda Neat podcast.

These guys are now 2/2 with their singles, and their videos are absolutely excellent too. I’m really looking forward to their album, which unfortunately at the moment doesn’t even have a date. But the two songs that have been released are officially up for sale on Itunes now, that’s something.
 
Wax Poetics has details about all of this as well as some insight into the video from the singer of the group, go there and read it.

808s 3 now has an official release date – June 30, 2015. Glad to see the hype around it starting to bubble a bit.
 

White Gzus – Stackin’ N Mackin’ 2 (Mixtape)

I fucked up and slept on White Gzus, despite recommendations from trusted sources. ‘Lotus‘ was the one that finally really got my attention, and then I found the ‘Return Of the G’ video (above) and this mixtape where it came from and now I’m pretty much hooked. It’s exactly what I need for the summer – smooth breezy playalistic riding rap, effortlessly sitting sidewayz in a Caddy that also doubles as a yacht. Yung David Drake already did a great detailed review of it here, go read it for context and smart details.
 

 

#HITSBLUNT: French Montana & Curren$y Didn’t Actually Make Two Different Songs Called ‘In The Sun’

I was 100% convinced French and Spitta already made a song called ‘In The Sun’ once back in 2010, but TWIST it turns out that song was actually called ‘So High’ (it’s above). It was the chorus that was throwing me off, plus the song was actually labeled as ‘In The Sun’ on several (unofficial?) occasions. The new song off Casino Life 2 that is actually called ‘In The Sun’ (below) isn’t quite as good as the old one, but still good for summering purposes.
