Logic takes us on an 18-track interstellar journey with gallons of subtle 90s hip-hop references laced into each instrumental and verse. The production on this is out of this world as well, the majority of which is credited to 6ix and Logic. Logic continues to rep the 301 throughout the project and make the DMV proud. Available on iTunes. Spotify stream below.

Woah woah woah. We got some new Jigga set to release July 4th. Yes sir!
Peep some behind the scenes footage from the making of.. Some lords of Hip Hop working together on this one: Pharrell, Timbaland, SwizzBeatz, RickRubin. These beats sound cray.. Takes me back to the first time I ever heard “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”. I’m amped.
Apparently this is the start of a new series to come from Mac, called The Space Migration Sessions. Not sure what that’s all about, I guess just random jam sessions. Whatever it is, I dig it.
For this track, Mac is backed up instrumentally by The Internet, though orignal production was handled by Pharrell. Awesome tune featuring a rare side of Mac. Really proves his range of musical abilities here.
Maryland local Kwame Darko has clearly been hard at work practicing his craft. Kwame had previously put out a grouping of songs as well as mixtape right around the time he moved to NYC last year to focus more directly on his music. I have to say this is by far the most polished offering we’ve heard from him, definitely has me exited to root on a new talent from the DMV that’s blooming nicely.
Kwame makes a statement this time around, and he’s spot on, we see you now! Looking forward to receiving a steady stream of new material from this quickly rising star.

You’re gonna be seeing a lot of Chance related posts in the near future. Maybe once a year I come across a new artist that has the ability to consume my interest. After listening to his Acid Rap mixtape (check it out a few posts below), Chance clearly stands out in my mind as the most creative lyricist out. Everything about his style, his flow, his storytelling, his cracked melodies, even his ad libs that spaz-out between screeching yelps and lullabied whispers, puts him in a unique lane that should have other artists worried. Even Kendrick needs to step his game up. Yeah, I went there.
If you don’t have time to listen through the entire Acid Rap mixtape, do yourself a favor and at least listen to tracks 3 and 8 (“Cocoa Butter Kisses” and “Favorite Song”). You can stream them from the download link I’ve provided. Chance spits the first verse on both tracks. But don’t sleep on the features in both of them either, which includes Vic Mensa, Twista, and Childish Gambino. They each bring their A-game, clearly aware of company they are in with Chance in the studio.
If those 2 tracks don’t entice you to download the entire tape, then we have nothing left to discuss. Please don’t come back.
Woah woah woah. Let me get this out of the way first so I can help y’all keep track:
Hype man: DJ Khaled
Verse 1: Ace Hood
Verse 2: Meek Mill
Verse 3: T.I.
Verse 4: Wiz Khalifa
Verse 5: Bird Man
Verse 6: French Montana
Verse 7: 2 Chainz
Verse 8: Ace Hood
How they managed to get all these artists on this track is crazy. But I’d bet money Bird Man and Khaled played a major role in it.
The original already went hard, it’s actually what solidified Ace Hood’s talent for me. He’s got one of the toughest, most original flows out. And on the remix he continues to impress, bringing heat on 2 brand new versus, refusing to get out-shined by the all star lineup. He definitely takes the cake here. I’d give runner up to T.I. who spit some of the meanest bars I’ve heard from him in a minute.
