Earlier this year, up-and-coming rapper/singer Raury gave us one of the best projects of 2014, his debut Indigo Child. This week we have one of his first major collaborations, this time with rapper Gucci Mane on his track ‘Dead People’. You may have not expected this collaboration but the song is not one to sleep on.

Chicago’s Taylor Bennett showed us what he has been doing since his graduation, as he recently gave fans his Freshman Year: 1st Semester EP. The EP features his tracks ‘Can’t Flop’, ‘Me & You’, ‘I’m Coming Down’ and ‘Family Gotta Eat’. Stream the entire project at Taylor’s Soundcloud and check out ‘Family Gotta Eat’ above.
