Michael Aristotle - Tadow Freestyle

“I just finished up the album and needed some R&R” pens a relieved and accomplished Michael Aristotle over this well-known Masego joint “Tadow”.

Honestly, it’s been amazing watching his growth through all the years and 2019 has been a special one for Mikey & the East Chain family.
It’s looking like the album will make its way to us before the year is over to put the musical icing on our aural cakes.

“Almost There”


ALMTY Ceez & Da Kidd Half - On The Low (Prod. Nino Francis)

You thought we forgot about you?

We’ve been sitting on this one for a minute and are super excited to let this one go.
ALMTY Ceez laces this Nino Francis beat for the perfect partnership to easily give anyone goosebumps. As if it couldn’t get any better, Da Kidd Half tunes in some rasp on the hook to emphasize the pain that’s already apparent.

TDN EP in motion.
Stay noted.


Dreamville - Rotd3.Com

Dreamville has been clearing things out from the sessions early in the year and has finally decided to heat the summer up.

Along with announcing the project is dropping Friday, we get two new cuts as more of a sneak peek into what we can expect. One joint is “Lambo Truck” by Cozz, Reason & Childish Major.

The other has a lot more names to balance as “Costa Rica” features J.I.D, Bas, Ski Mask The Slump God, Smokepurpp, Mez, Guapdad 4000, Reese LaFlare, Jace & Buddy.


Hil Holla - WCF

The saga continues.
“Please don’t ever pray for me the kid is living off his sins” concludes Hil Holla’s recent single “WCF”.

It’s properly titled “Western Conference Finals” because the energy he exudes on this one is celebratory, as if he’s advanced to the next step but also hungry to make it to the Finals and compete for the title. He also skillfully interweaves a handful of NBA references.

Aside from a couple select features, this is his first offering since dropping the well-received “Outside Providence” three years ago. We’re ready for more.

This is just practice so stay noted!

Despo - Homebody (Remix)

“Come be my Rihanna or my Thotiana, either way” spits Despo to that special person.

Despo gives us a little something by remixing Lil Durk’s “Homebody” to slide some clever bars for his shawty.
Good joint to warm us up until the next drop!


Latrell James - One Call

As elusive as he’s been, Latrell James is always one phone call away.

Slowly, but surely, Latrell has been letting off singles to get us ready for a new project. The phone theme seems to be most prevalent and it’s working.
He continues to showcase his strong songwriting skills with an infectious hook and strong verses to accompany it.

“One Call is a reminder that mortality is real. My hope is that when people hear this song, they go check in on their loved ones.” -Latrell James
Stay noted for more.

GoldLink - U Say (Feat. Tyler, The Creator & Jay Prince)

*Big sigh* Ahhh, summer tunes are beginning to surface and this one right here is probably my favorite one released so far!

GoldLink teams up with Tyler, The Creator and Jay prince to create a very chill, bouncy record you can dance to, drive to, drink to, or really whatever you please. Jay prince applies beautiful vocals for the chorus that sooth your mind and soul. GoldLink uses his rhythmic flows to completely float over the afro-drum heavy beat. Tyler gives us his classic rap style while giving us his thoughts on a girl he’s trying to run off with.

GoldLink will be on tour with Tyler, Tix on sale Friday!

Let us know how y’all feel about this one!

Whytri - Showboy Freestyle

He’s been flipping tickets like crazy.

WHYTRI slides us a drop right before his first headlining show at The Middle East in Boston. He let this one go as the first offering of “Lucies Vol 1” because the VIP tickets sold out (clearly a dope sign and something to celebrate).

“Showboy” has him rapping rapping over production from Breezen as they combine for what seems like a lyrical encore after a successful showing.

Get your tickets to tonight’s show here and also check out a playlist made to familiarize yourself with the artists on the bill.
