Palermo Stone “Milk & Honey” (Audio)
Featured on his recently released project, The 2nd Coming, Palermo Stone debuts the the second single, “Milk & Honey.”
Hunnit Andretti’s production drops the funk, albeit slowly at first, with soulful vocal samples that carry the classic feel of a soft R&B jam. The track then picks up the tempo for the R.A.R.E. Nation artist to weave in prose that wanders in between the juxtaposition of good and evil.

Amarae’ Releases “Sessions” (Album Stream)
If you haven’t heard of the Nedlog Era before this moment, it’s about time. The Atlanta based crew is youthful, invigorated, and hungry to take over Dekalb County and the rest of the globe permanently with uncut, hard hitting lyricism and equally rugged production. Amarae’ is one such member who is striving to take their Nedlog movement to greater heights with his latest project, Sessions.
At just 17 years old, it’s no wonder why Amarae’s lyricism circles around the enthusiastic braggadocio of a young man and his desire to escape the snowballing pressure of society’s almighty thumb. However, the difference between Amarae’ and most people his age is that he frequently displays a keen ability to deliver his boastful messages with the ferocity and tactical precision of a veteran. Amarae’ isn’t just a spitter either, as he proves his own skills at producing on numerous cuts including the fervent electronic prowess of “King TZA” and the contrasting, ageless sounds of “Super Hero Music.”
In addition, the 12 track tape is laced with strong features and production from Spivey, Ronndo, and Chickalo that assists in making this one project that should definitely not be slept on.
Take a listen below and follow Amarae’ and the Nedlog Era as they throw on their capes and fight to save Hip-Hop in the streets of the ATL’s South Gotham.

Chris Crack Releases “Kickin It Wit TW” (Album Stream)
The streets of Chicago may be hot but Chris Crack stays ice cold with his latest project, Kickin It Wit TW.
An ode to the New Deal Crew captain’s moniker, Trill Withers, all 15 tracks are chocked full of psychedelic samples and some of that classic soul-trap sound we’ve come to know and love from the team. While most of the cuts are fashioned by the intricate ear of TMTHY TRTL, additonal assistance from Cutta, TREE, D.B. Cooper, and BoatHouse give rise to Mr. Withers lyrical pimp hand as he slaps the game upside the head with his braggadocious, swagged out prose.
For more on the Trill Withers character, just take notes from the following introduction for the tape below.
Trill pimpin’ psychedelic time traveler, TRILL WITHERS (aka Chris Crack), has rock climbed through the mild-sauce-trenches of empty Uncle Remus’ chicken baskets, while battling the trifling THOTS & THERMS that dwell the earth- to claim his title as the West Side “Silver Surfer’. With the aid of his cultish chivalry, the New Deal Crew, Sir Crackaveli and his cult continue their based ass conquest to bring the MOTHA FXCKIN WAVE BACK!!! (THREE-SIX-MAFIA SAMPLE* YEAHHH HOE!!!)

John $cott “Ethereality” (Audio)
After having the pleasure of being introduced to John $cott’s work some time ago, it’s been even more enjoyable to watch and listen to the young artist’s continued growth in his musicality and artistry.
Garnering the attention from the likes of Chicago’s Chris Crack, KeVon, and $pencer $ims, $cott’s sound is maturing and, just like fine wine, is getting stronger and more mouthwatering with each release. His latest effort is no different.
As the title track to his upcoming EP, “Ethereality” sports trance-like, atmospheric samples and whimsical vocals with a Trap based backdrop that immediately teleports listeners into the audible netherworld of John $cott. Be careful though. You might just float away with this one.
