Rahim Samad – Have Discipline
JAI NITAI LOTUS – Pi Ft. Sam I Am Montolla (Montreal)
Jai Nitai Lotus is man on the grind and I say that with utmost respect and sincerity. Besides lacing and directing the video for Ian Kamau’s You,I, he has been quietly prepping his upcoming mixtape called Acknowledgement. The first leak ‘Honest‘ showed up on WIB some months ago and now has returned with this Sam I Am Montolla assisted joint called ‘Pi (Brahma Built)’, a soulful thematic cut that showcases Jai in his element as he channels some inner chakra with the nouns and verbs. A special shoutout to Sam I am too, she’s always killing..
GRiMM Doza – Three Eyes
Here’s something a little hazy from GRiMM Doza. Smoke Dojo is his upcoming release on the exceptional Radio Juicy, a label/collective that deserves to be spoken of in the same vein as Jakarta Records and Urban Waves, and here we have ‘Three Eyes’ which is our first glimpse at what’s to come. If you’re familiar with the likes of ILL SUGI and Repeat Pattern, then you’ll know the kinda sound this NJ native produces: low-fi, dusty, exquisitely imperfect.
The Black Opera – No Water Prod By Jansport J
Super great news as The Black Opera Prepares NEw Album titled ‘The Great Year’ and in benevolent fashion they deliver the first leak ‘No Water’ for free. The track itself takes a humorous spin on the Water World(Go watch the movie) situation. Just imagine if H2O-which we so take for granted -becomes scarce? I can’t but No Water paints that picture perfectly for us.
Watch out for The Great Year and also make sure you go see them live.
The Great Year hits stores September 30th and features production from Waajeed, 14KT, yU, Arjun Singh, Tall Black..
