The unique styles of these three lyricists are tied together by a production that evokes 80’s era 8-bit video games and the result is pure heat. Listen below courtesy of the adult swim Singles series and look for Dabrye’s project to drop in February 2018.

Premiere: SONNYJIM ft. Westside Gunn – Red Mullet

Friday, June 10th, 2016

The other night I got a message from Kris Ex to check out SONNYJIM’s Mud In My Malbec. After a quick Google search, I noticed there were only some snippets from the album out, but that was enough (stream it after the jump). I rather you listen to the sampler first, but to give you an idea, the UK rapper uses Jazz-sampled beats & has the kind of rhyme-style that instantly turned myself and others onto the likes of Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, etc. Rappers and their die-hard fans generally don’t like those kind of comparisons, but it’s the only way to describe the feeling I got from listening to it, and this is coming from someone completely jaded from rap who hasn’t been excited (short of a few exceptions) in the last three or so years.

Pre-order “Mud In My Malbec” and purchase some product here. The project features the likes of Heems, Da$h, Quelle Chris, Westside Gunn & The Purist. Listen to “Scramble” featuring Da$h, that I’ve been playing ever since, below.

After sharing “Nothing Moves” last week, Quelle Chris is back with “I Asked God”, the first single from his new album, Innocent Country. Bay Area producer Chris Keys is handling all of the production on the album and it will arrive on July 10th through Mello Music Group. The premise of this record is real!

Chris says about the track:

“Often we turn to something or someone else. Asking, hoping and waiting for change. Be thankful for what’s around you, seen and unseen. Yet, never forget the power you hold within yourself.”

Hit the jump for the full Innocent Country tracklist. Pre-order here.
