I’ve had mixed feelings about Salva’s previous work with rappers, but this one really hit home as a great homage to classic West Coast rap. The last minute is a full-on tribute to the Chronic.
 

 
Taken from Salva’s Peacemaker album, available for download HERE.
 

Maxo Kream x Lyndo Cartel – REAL BUCC (Prod. Tommy Kruise)

Maxo is pretty much untouchable right now. Albeit this one is just a tiny bit less epic than the last time he rapped over a Tommy Kruise beat.
 

 

Your Old Droog – No Message Feat. Rast RFC (Prod By The P Brothers)

This combination is almost too on the nose – Droog and Rast don’t sound particularly similar but are clearly like-minded and take inspiration from the same musical culture. Both have recently captured the ear of a certain cross-section of NY rap fans, and that cross-section is likely the exact target audience for The P Brothers’ classically minded work on The Gas EPs and album. So it’s not really surprising that the song comes together well. Apparently a whole EP of this stuff is in the works.
 

 

Flowdan – Ambush

I’m mostly here for the song, which is taken from Hyperdub 10.1, but the generically trippy fan-made video accompanying it doesn’t hurt either. I don’t really know shit about grime, but I always dig Flowdan’s work. He is just a good rapper, regardless of proper genre tags.
