Chris Brown, OHB & Section Boyz – Attack The Block [New Mixtape]

October 29, 2016

By Jake Miosge

Surprise! Breezy is back with another mixtape.

Along with OHB (Only Hood Bosses) and U.K.’s Section Boyz, Chris Brown returns with a 16-track project, Attack the Block.

Ray J, French Montana, Hoody Baby, Young Lo, and Young Blacc all pop up on this effort, which follows Chris Brown and OHB’s Before Da Trap: Nights in Tarzana mixtape, which dropped in April.

Breezy isn’t afraid to get raunchy either. On the French Montana-assisted “Erday,” he sings: “You a pretty little lady, fuck the devil out of you / I’m about to roll some dice, daddy needs some new shoes.”

But he isn’t just singing to the ladies. He also has a message for his foes. “Pull up, if you ‘bout it, ni**a,” he raps on “New Gang.” “Where I’m from, we body ni**as.”

Stream Attack the Block below.

October 28, 2016

By FuNkwoRm

It’s back!!! Every other Friday the dopest playlist of unheard indie artists will be post here and on Soundcloud. There’s no particular method connected to how I go about finding those to put on this list. For the most part, I do browse the posts here on Indie Wednesday but I also discover music from a number of different sources. If you’re not on this list, it doesn’t mean that I don’t like your music or I don’t think that you’re dope. These are just tracks that fit my particular taste. Hope you enjoy!

Sonder (Brent Faiyaz, Dpat, & Atu) – Too Fast

October 25, 2016

By Ashley Outrageous

Keep the slow jams coming! As if I didn’t love Brent Faiyaz’s AM Paradox EP enough he’s back with a tune from his group Sonder, a trio with a shared vision between long time production collaborators dpat and atu with writing and vocals carefully delivered by Brent.

By definition, Sonder is the realization that each random passerby lives a life as vivid and complex as your own and with that, our unique experiences all flow into one another. This is exactly what to expect from Sonder’s forthcoming Into EP – a cohesive and flowing body of work, a story.

The lead song “Too Fast” premiered by Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 Radio show was written by Faiyaz – the voice of Sonder – and dives into the stresses a 20-something might encounter in 2016.

Sonder met on the internet in an organic way and got right to work. In nearly two weeks, the trio locked themselves into Atu’s central Florida studio to create the 7 song EP, Into, which displays each members’ unique perspective creating the sound that is distinctively known as Sonder.

Daniel Ceasar ft. Kali Uchis – Get You

October 25, 2016

By Ashley Outrageous

As the days become colder and cuffing season approaches, my search for new slow jams is picking up. Let’s start things off with a smooth duet from Toronto singer-songwriter Daniel Ceasar titled “Get You” featuring AO! favorite, Kali Uchis. The track is all about Ceasar in awe of who he’s falling for and I am obsessed with it! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to this track already.

“I met a girl and got very involved. She brought things and feelings out of me that I didn’t know I had. ‘Get You’ is a song of praise to a love I didn’t even feel I deserved at the time,” Caesar told Billboard, who premiered the track. “Being with someone you truly adore and being present enough in the moment that the world literally slows down and you ask yourself how did I stumble into this? I’m always shooting myself in the foot, but I’m in here.”
