This trailer actually came out a month ago, I totally forgot about it. There’s some great potential in this collaboration, curious if it will be all instrumental or Droop-E will rap (probably the latter).
 
Here’s Droop-E going over a classic Mac Mall instrumental, which just dropped today and reminded me of the commercial above.
 

 

Tha Dogg Pound – Locz And Doggz (Mixed by Dj Omar Seedless)

Because it’s nice as fuck outside and this is called Locz And Doggz and was put together by a guy named Seedless and it includes a rare St. Ides commercial that apparently didn’t even make it to the most comprehensive compilation of them out there. Plus all the other reasons you can think of to listen to 90s g-funk, of which there are many.

FUCKING FINALLY, something new from one of my favorite groups working today. Been waiting for a followup to Cognac/Four Corner Room for over a year now, hopefully this is the first glimpse of it.
 

VIDEO: The Guys – Kush Cloud

A song called ‘Kush Cloud’ dropping on 4/20 would usually be just another routine tribute to getting high, but The Guys are better and more introspective than that and so their song’s content veers closer to ‘Crumblin’ Erb’ than to ‘I Get High’.

Rast – It’s My Turn

New one from Rast, taken from the upcoming Story of a Legend on Dope Folks Records. The beat has a fuzzy psych-garage feel to it, which is fitting since a lot of the production Rast chooses has some interesting late 60s/early 70s rock undertones.
 

Awful Records 4/20 Song Drop

Afwul are flooding twitter with new tracks, 4/20 is #awfulholiday I guess. Gonna put up the ones that caught my ear in here. Pyramid Quince’s tiny 4 track EP (above) is leading as my favorite of the bunch so far.
 
UPDATE (4/21) – Here is the playlist collecting all the loose songs that dropped yesterday. I’m keeping Quince’s EP up top, since it remains my favorite and isn’t included fully below. Gahm’s ‘Gone Is Love’ and Richposlim’s ‘Wants’ ended up as my favorite of the rest.
 

 

Dr. Yen Lo (Ka & Preservation) – Day 912

New one from the upcoming Days With Dr. Yen Lo album, maybe my favorite yet. There’s a certain urgency and tension here that wasn’t as pronounced on the previous singles.

Dear lord please let them make an ongoing series of videos for Carpenter’s Lost Themes that continues the narrative started here. I’m dying to see the baseball bat guy go toe to toe with the sword guy.
 

Tree – Treestrumentals

This is exactly what it looks like – a collection of Tree’s instrumentals, compiled by the man himself in collaboration with Mishka (spearheaded by their editor @neonpajamas). It’s a great idea all around, Tree is a very good rapper but he was first noticed for his awesomely idiosyncratic Soul Trap production style, and this compilation brings that aspect of his career back into the spotlight. The execution is neat too, each instrumental is cut down to below 2 minutes, which circumnavigates that thing where beats made for rapping sound repetitive in instrumental form (I’m guessing this was also done to prevent other rappers from jacking them).
 
via Mishka obviously

Honestly, this might be too much game for me to handle at once.
