OG Maco is back again with another EP, this one being titled “Breathe”. I knew he was a decent artist, but he surprised me with this one. Maco touches on topics not only relevant to the hood, but our community as a whole. Even though it only consists of 3 tracks, dude had me in my feelings. This is a must listen.
Trouble just released a new deluxe version of his “All On Me” project, so today we get a new visual for one of the featured tracks, named after his camp Duct Tape, featuring Young Scooter, Big Bank Black and VL Deck.

Newcomer Shane MauX is currently promoting his first EP release, “Come Alive”, so today we premiere his new single, “Lush”. Shane showcases strong lyricism and delivery, along with a dark sound.

After starting off his weekly album series with 2 video releases, today Raz premieres his 3rd straight soundcloud release. Episode 5 of Cognitive Dissonance: Part 2 is titled “Out Here Gettin’ Money”, which he also produced. I’ve been saying Raz is one to keep an eye on, give it a listen and hear why.
Welp, the numbers are in! J Cole’s surprise album, “2014 Forest Hills Drive” made a successful first week debut at #1 with over $361,210 units sold. The predictions were around the 200’s, but needless to say, numbers don’t lie.
Just goes to show, Bey and Jay aren’t the only ones who can pull that “no promotion” thing off. Congrats, Carolina boy, I know the good folks over at Roc Nation are too proud.
