Remember that little performance in Britain? The official version was released today, and dear lord it's amazing. After revealing that his next LP is entitled So Help Me God, Kanye officially dropped his newest banger "All Day". It's just as epic and bombastic as the Brit performance. There's an extended ending with guitar provided by Paul McCartney and vocals by Theophilius London. My only complaint is that Allan Kingdom's hook somewhat sounds a bit like a dying animal. That's a bit too harsh but it does sound somewhat weird. But nonetheless, "All Day" is a song I've already been blasting all day long.
Later this month, the world will finally be blessed with Action Bronson's first commercial album. And today he released a new single, entitled "Baby Blue". The track is produced by Mark Ronson oddly enough, and features an ending from Chance the Rapper. The song is hilarious and filled with great quotables, and looks like Mr. Wonderful will definitely be a great album.
Last Saturday, Ab-Soul completed forty-seven stops on his These Days tour. In honor of it, he tweeted a link to a short new song entitled "47 Bars". Soul effortlessly flows over an Alchemist-produced beat. He tweeted the song and said "I might get dropped from the label for this one", which may be showing that there's some trouble brewing at Top Dawg, but you can enjoy the song anyways.
Fresh off the success of his first major label LP, Logic surprised his fans with a new, Big K.R.I.T-assisted song "Top Ten". Produced by in-house producer 6ix, the track is smooth, and reaffirms that both MC's are at the top of their game. Catch K.R.I.T. at Forecastle this summer, which I will be documenting, and catch Logic's sophomore album which should come out this year, or early next.
Chicago's hip-hop scene is popping, with artists like Mick Jenkins, BJ the Chicago Kid, Vic Mensa, and Chance the Rapper. But there are many smaller artists who have been steadily rising up, one of which is Towkio. Part of Mensa's SAVEMONEY crew, Towkio is working on a new project. The newest cut, "Free Your Mind" shows that this project will be great. With production from the Social Experiment, and with trumpets from Donnie Trumpet, the song is an upbeat, dance-able song that mixes jazz with EDM. The track is a great teaser for Towkio's next project.
