Inspired by artists like Mandrill, Herbie Hancock,Roy Ayers and Boards of canada, This project mixes psychedelic and ambient synths w/ the signature southern 808 sound while also sprinkling soul samples throughout

Promising description + SMKA have had a very solid production track record over the last few years, so this album is a safe bet if you like instrumental hiphop/beat tapes and such.

I should pay more attention to Jarren Benton, he is hilariously manic but beyond the lolz he is also clearly talented. And his mixtape titles are truly inspired.

I’ve been waiting for Thizzler to drop this for a bit now. All the leaked singles have been strong, so I expect good things.

There is a good writeup on the soundcloud page explaining what’s going on here, you should go read it.

Kinda wish this wasn’t another weed song but just the fact that his collaboration exists and doesn’t suck is good enough to warrant a post. Also, gotta give credit to SGP for stepping it up just enough as to not sound like a complete retard in comparison to the other two vastly superior rappers.

In terms of simple fundamentals that make up good rap music, this might be the best song that has or will come out today (today being the day of several anticipated high-profile releases).

Premiered via SFWeekly; taken from the upcoming Darkest Before Dawn compilation, hosted by The Thizzler
EDIT: While we’re here, might as well throw in this latest leak from Shady’s upcoming collab with Deniro Farrar…
