A nod to golden age hip-hop here from recent Top Dawg signee Isaiah Rashad. He sounds hungry on this track, coming in with an impassioned verse that spans its entirety. The beat here goes hard as well. From Civilia Demo, released last week on TDE. Love the grainy textures in this black and white vid as well.
Schoolboy Q - Man Of The Year
This track knocks. Q sounds great on top of amazing production from Nez & Rio. Love those subtle panned hi-hats. And this video is just a great time. Its also surprisingly lacking in sleaziness. Everyones just havin’ fun somewhere nice. The Oxymoron LP drops February 25 on TDE/Interscope. Confirmed guests include Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Raekwon and more.
Add Migos to the growing list of eccentric and exciting voices in Rap these days that Undone is hyped on. The trio hail from the ATL and bring with them that trademarked ‘weird-o drawl’ that the south has been producing for years. Although some may write off Migos as Pop-Hop (new term) and Hooky Rap, there is definitely a more refined aesthetic and finely tuned ear running throughout their recent mixtape ‘Young Rich Niggas’. With a slew of guest features ranging from the esoteric (Soulja Boy, Riff Raff) and the club friendly (Gucci Mane, Trinidad James), Migos are solidifying their Freshman status and preparing for the next leap. 2014; it’s your turn boys.
The story goes that apparently 2 Chainz and Pharrell banged out this jam within a few hours after the Grammys while still reppin’ their tuxedos. Chainz brings his signature sloppy flow and don’t-give-a-fuck rhymes while Pharrell makes the magic happen on the keys. Certain to be a sweaty summer banger.
More throwback vibes on the newest mixtape from Joey Bada$$. It dropped today and its called Summer Knights. Always love his cadence and unconventional flow.
Every listen gets us even more hyped for the eventual drop of this album. Everyone else can go home now. Drake killed it.

New and oh so smooth. That BRAINFEEDER tip!
The Purist X Danny Brown - “Jealousy” (Official Video)
Joey Bada$$ - Wendy N Becky (feat. Chance The Rapper) (prod. Thelonius Martin)
Joey is still on his missions to bring back boom-bap in a big way and boy is he ever succeeding. Smooth jazz samples over jumpy progressive lyrical flow. You can almost hear the needle skip on this joint.
