Westside Gunn and French producer Mil drop their Riots On Fashion Avenue EP. The project consists of an intro, 2 new tracks and an outro, as well as instrumentals and alternate versions. We’ve already heard “Brains Flew By” and “Don’t Trust A Soul”, both of which were crazy.
Awwh shit, the Stepbrothers ride again. Don Trip and Starlito return with a new 6-track EP under their Stepbrothers moniker, and naturally, it’s called Karate In The Garage. The title is, of course, a reference to one of the classic scenes from the movie that gave them their name, but it was also one of the craziest tracks from their first mixtape. On this go round they’ve got Yo Gotti and Red Dot making guest appearances.
Well now, this is a good look. Your Old Droog and Wiki of RATKING connect for a surprise 5-track EP that asks, What Happened To Fire?

MadeinTYO had a huge year and 24hrs is on the come-up of late so they both look to further their respective movements with a new joint project called, what else: 24hrs in Tokyo. The 4-track EP features production from K Swisha, Izze and James Royo.
BKLYN Stickup’s Danse drops his new 6-track EP When They Give You Nothing, which takes its title from his team’s well-known motto. The project is highlighted by the track “Fuck FADER” on which Danse takes the publication (and other media outlets) to task for what he sees as a “pay for play” system that has replaced the old radio payola networks. Check out this HuffPo post for more specifics on his motivation. I can’t speak to the editorial integrity of any other site or publication, but there is certainly some bullshit going on in the online Rap media industry, that’s for sure.

Deniro Farrar drops his new Red Book Vol. 1 EP. The 6-track offering is devoid of guest features and was inspired by the hands-on approach of the Black Panthers at the height of their resistance. As he explained to XXL: “I feel we are lacking a lot of the fundamental tools we need in order to revolutionize. I just want to liberate the minds of the people so that we can come together as one and rise up against the crooked government, all evil and oppression.”
