Trap heavyweight RL Grime dropped this new heater off his debut album Void featuring G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean, who is also on top of his game right now. The track is dope. The chorus is a little abrasive but catchy none the less, and the verses go hard. RL did his part too providing a grimey trap beat with heavy street appeal.These EDM x hip hop collabs are becoming more and more common, but this might be our favorite since A$AP Rocky and Skrillex dropped “Wild for the Night.”
Check out this new posse cut from the Shady Records camp, “Psychopath Killer.” The track includes the entire roster including Yelawolf, Slaughterhouse, and of course Eminem himself. The slightly creepy track is produced by an unlikely dream team consisting of Just Blaze, Boi-1da and the Maven Boys. The track pretty much what you would expect from the Shady Roster: a dope beat, insane rhyme patterns, a few celebrity name drops, and plenty of shock value.
Cartoon network’s Adult Swim has long been a proponent of dope, independent hip hop. Tonight the Eric Andre Show premiers on Adult Swim, and they released footage of the closing segment, which is a treadmill rap battle between to of hip hops most relevant names, Action Bronson and Killer Mike (of Run The Jewells.) From the looks of it, these boys don’t do a whole lot of cardio on a regular basis, so you can imagine how this turns out. Enjoy!
Zedd teamed up with Absolut Vodka for the official video for his remix of Magic!’s Rude. Calling this a music video is a stretch, its more like an extended Absolut Vodka TV advertisement with Zedd’s song in the background. The video features a group of friends night at one hell of a party courtesy of Zedd and his new favorite vodka sponsor. Chock-full of vodka toasting imagery, it manages to take product placement to new heights. Regardless, we appreciate effective advertising here, and the video is definitely cool enough. In a modern music industry where music itself is all but worthless, we can’t knock Zedd’s hustle on this one.
Pusha T is back with this Kanye West produced single. The beat sounds like a track that got left off of Yeezus, but Pusha goes in, and the track is dope overall. The exclusive stream is courtesy of Funk Flex or you can pick the single up on iTunes now.

Los Angeles veterans Dilated Peoples released the visuals to their lead single “Show Me Th Way” Featuring Aloe Blacc. The video is refreshingly simple and minimal, but its clever enough.

We love the laid back vibe of this track, it’s a perfect song to roll one up and smoke to!
