Jay Boogie – Richmond Son

With the release of Black Messiah, I wanted to give folks who aren’t as familiar with @thedangelo a taste of what came before and give fans a nice likkle mix to enjoy.

I have been actually thinking about doing a D’angelo mix for a minute; apropos that BM dropped when it did.

There are a lot of ways this could have gone & there may be more to come but after a PK sesh with the Aerizer, this is how I was feeling.

Dig it.

Jamil The DJ & Mav-One – Party & Bullshit, Vol. One

To get your weekend poppin’ early, you would be remiss not to have this on repeat.

Mike WiLL Made-It – Swerve (ft ILOVEMAKONNEN)

Mike WiLL Made-It (@mikewillmadeit) is one of the most consistent young rap producers in the game right now and it would be criminal to not acknowledge his new mixtape, Ransom, which happened to drop the same day that D’Angelo released Black Messiah.

Its anticipated release was realized when the producer decided to drop it early Monday.

He brings his inner circle and some heavy hitters for it with appearances by Rae Sremmurd, Future, Juicy J, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar (on the well-executed Buy The World), Dej Loaf, Migos, Rich Homie Quan and this guy, ILOVEMAKONNEN (@ilovemakonnen5d).

Ransom Is available now on Dat Piff.

Bishop Nehru – Breath(Prana/Spirit)

A new heat rock from Bishop Nehru (@bishopnehru) featuring his own production reminds you why you got into his vibe on NehruvianDOOM.

Recorded at “4:50 in the morning” after his “green headphones just broke” seems like a great hour for him to hit that button.

Now, check how the Brooklyn emcee sounds over a 9th Wonder (@9thwondermusic) beat…

Potatohead People – Explosives (ft Illa-J, Moka Only)

When this project – helmed by Montreal’s Nick Wisdom (@nickwisdom) and Vancouver’s AstroLogical (@nateastrobeats) was first announced, the biggest question was how Illa-J would sound over production that did not come from his brother.

With Moka Only (@mokaonly) in tow – who has also recorded with Dilla (@officialjdilla1) – the four have crafted a very comfortable space for J and Moke’s bars.

Brooklyn-based label Bastard Jazz invested in this project and they’re probably glad they did with the soulful, jazzy, boom bap provided by the four notables.

Explosives is available on iTunes and is worth every penny.
