Wuddduupp friends?! I know y’all been sweating the fact that we haven’t been in these online streets for a few weeks. Sorry. We’ve been working hard to give you guys the best of the best on the air. There has been a ton of new music so be sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled as you read below.
We have really been digging this new Theophilus London album entitled ‘Vibes’. Executive produced by Mr. Kanye West himself, the Brooklyn rapper gives us a new feel to his abilities as an emcee. The last we heard from Theophilus was back when he had that 2012 hit with A$AP Rocky. (you can peep it below). But in all honesty, the album is pretty tight. It has a real medley of sounds from different genres. Some songs sound more like slow building, progressive EDM than authentic hip-hop; but it works. Check out his previous hit and new cuts below. Good vibes only!
Up next we touched on the BET Hip-Hop Awards that happend a few weeks back. The best part about these awards are their, well, awards. They have all different kinds of awards ranging from fan faves to more technical accolades. Check below for a full list of winners.
