Here are a few records we currently love and think you might too.
MADLIB – SHADES OF BLUE (CD)
Shades of Blue is the ultimate collision between the essence of Hip Hop beats, and the legacy of the Blue Note label. This is 16 tracks of masterful production. Highly recommended for any hip hop fan.
SOCCER MOMMY – CLEAN (VINYL LP)
Smooth melodies, and classic indie rock songwriting, Clean has always been somewhat of a throwback record. For a lot of us, “Your Dog” was our intro to Soccer Mommy but this record is so much more than that.
21 SAVAGE & METRO BOOMIN – SAVAGE MODE II
The sequel to Savage Mode, Metro Boomin and 21 Savage make it look easy here. The beats are fat, and the raps are sharp. Also, Morgan Freeman.
AMINE – LIMBO (VINYL LP)
Honestly, haven’t been this excited about a Hip Hop album in a long time. A+ to Amine on this record.
