Budding producer EOM just dropped his new project Sunrain and this remains my favorite track! Smooth, good-vibes hip hop to start your weekend right, and you can cop the album on iTunes.
The Bay Area hip hop scene is RAW and here’s Jeff Turner attesting to that on some boom-bap shit! It’s the second release off his upcoming mixtape Mustle Memory which drops May 1st.
About time we got a visual for this one, and Spidy did a neat job with the video! Off that new Love Story.
Another joint off The Ecology (which dropped in February) gets the visual treatment.
Beatsmith Elements of Music aka EOM drops a final single before his upcoming project Sunrain comes out the day after tomorrow. Also, Roth spits real comfy on this beat and props to Camila on the hook – spring time hip hop.
And if I wasn’t done talking on Yelawolf’s Love Story, this shit is hella-fuckin smooth! By the way, this was also on his 2013 Mixtape Trunk Muzik Returns.
One of the most anticipated hip hop projects this year, Love Story from Yelawolf dropped midnight and that’s all I’ve been bumpin since. Y’all know I prefer to stay away from long reviews, unless an album strikes out to me; and well I’m mostly enthralled, with one particular reservation however.
Really wish Yela had other features on the album besides the sole Eminem assisted Best Friend (which was dope by the way). Thereby, Love Story would have been a richer experience for the listener, but this is not to take anything away from Yela wanting to drop a very specific album, as per his vision and musicianship.
The Good – Creative exploration/experimentation with a blend of genres such as Country, Rock n roll, and bits of EDM, especially with the featured title track Love Story (one of my favorites off the record), showcasing the range and versatility of the overall project. And the biggest plus out of all, Yela’s originality and vulnerability to make music that resonates with who he is personally as an artist in the present, regardless of the strict codes in Hip Hop that emcees are subject to, and more so if they’re a white rapper IMO.
[Sidenote – All over the internet, critics and fans alike bash Yela’s previous major label debut Radioactive, but methinks it was a solid album in its own right – just with a different approach to the game]. With that being said, you can stream Love Story below via Spotify and go out to your local Best Buy and cop the album.
