Stream: Ghost Stories: Ghostface Killah’s Storytelling Raps

Quoth David D of the Smoking Section:

“Ghostface Killah is my favorite rapper of all time. Definitively and by far. One of the reasons he’s so great is his ability to weave stories and narratives like a new age Mark Twain in Wallabees. So imagine my delight at this mixtape by our very own Trackstar The DJ, chronicling Ghosts most memorable and compelling stories. It’s crazy to think that this tape has stories of project fights, hotel shootouts, church robberies, and dreams of Spongebob Squarepants. Don’t think of this as a mixtape. Think of it as a collection of stories from one of America’s greatest storytellers.”

Free MP3: Blanco & The Jacka & Messy Marv – Change featuring Nipsey Hussle

All of this was done with one thing in mind – building a buzz for a forthcoming new release, the One Hunnid EP, which releases today on iTunes. Teaming up once again with fellow Bay rappers The Jacka and Messy Marv, the trio enlists Grammy-winning production duo Tha Bizness. Featuring Compton rapper YG, Complex premiered the EP’s lead single, “9/11,” in March, calling the song “a smooth cut that is meant to bump at high volumes.” The second single, “Change,” features Nipsey Hussle, and was debuted by AllHipHop this past weekend. Tracks like “The Grassy Knoll” set a melancholy tone criticizing society and taking an analytical approach to politics, while the gangsta-fied “I Am Not A Krook” holds as a player’s anthem.


Free EP: Zion I – Libations EP

On the heels of the very boom bap oriented “Masters of Ceremony” EP, Zion I drops “Libations” the reflective 2nd installment of their 3 part series. “This project was heavily influenced by one of my best friends passing away suddenly”, states Zumbi, “His death put me in a mood to really analyze my life and how short this existence really can be.

Stream: L’Orange – The Orchid Days

a2066221357_2Through previous outputs, we’ve come to know L’Orange as a painter who only paints in dark shades, mixing in samples from a bygone era. The Orchid Days echoes with the harbingers of inevitable change. Love is not only a theme in this record, it might just be the pattern. The Orchid Days seems to be L’Orange’s most revealing effort yet. “Eventually” will hypnotize you with feelings unrequited, “A Spring Like You,” will hold you with a longing for things as they were in another life long-forgotten. “The Orchard” will numb you with its falling beauty, and you’ll know that she’s worked you over, and you won’t even care anymore. And all this is just the first of many courses that The Orchid Days puts forth. With each successive listen, notes of terror, wonder, paradise, oblivion sing in the shadows.
