Derrick Martin – Paper Plate

Bay Area multi-instrumentalist Derrick Martin provides us with this uplifting new single. ‘Paper Plate’ is almost like one man band-indie mixed with a little hint of Latino. It’s a really nice track, and the bongos are a great touch too. Reminds me of something you’d hear in a montage.

Yung Parkz – H.O.P.E. (Hoes Only Please Egos) [Prod. By DeeMoney]

Produced by DeeMoney, Atlanta native Yung Parkz‘ single ‘H.O.P.E. (Hoes Only Please Egos)’ is a hit. With a smooth beat, autotuned hook and some great bars, expect people to be talking about this track very soon.

Heartless – We On Our Way

Illinois based rapper Heartless’ recent cut ‘We On Our Way’ is a real deep track. The smooth flow and soulful beat both come together to carry across a message that Heartless is on his way to the top, regardless of what others say. I like it.

Leonardo DaVinchi – Last September/September 15th

WHEW. This cut from New York artist Leonardo DaVinchi features an RnB hook over an ambient-electro-y instrumental which (and I still can’t believe this) switches up into a Pound Cake remix. Clocking in at almost 7 minutes long, this is a track that will certainly be getting a lot more plays.

Jayar – Dream Chasing

Chicago rapper Jayar‘s intro to his new mixtape, ‘The Come Up’ features an intro which utilises the Dreams And Nightmares intro’s beat-switch to spit some heat. The mixing of the track is real nice too. Stream the track (and the rest of the mixtape) below.

Scumbag Kea – Yew Who

Check out Wiisconsin rapper Scumbag Kea‘s new video for his Nate Rhoads produced track ‘Yew Who’. The fun video (directed by Steven Heil) to the catchy track shows Kea ‘f*ckin’ sh*t up’ and having a blast while doing it.
