The man is acting crazy, enough to where Action Bronson said “YOU KNOW WHAT YOU GOD DAMN FAKA? I WANT TO LET THE WORLD KNOW I AM ONE OF THE CRAZIEST SHAKAMS IN MY MACKAFRAMALAM” and he did by writing and recording “Actin’ Crazy”, a song that is on his new album Mr. Wonderful
. You can see it above, not below because I didn’t place anything there. The album will be out on the 24th of March.
She was nominated for a Grammy and now Autumn Rowe has a new release out. This is for If I Don’t Have You – The Remixes
, where you have the original plus the remixes for it. The bassline sounds a bit like one of the bass synth lines in The Police’s “De Do Do Do De Da Da Da” but then it gets sparkly. You can download it by heading to Beatport

Another member of the Tracks family, Flawless Tracks, was hired to work with Chicago rapper G-B.A.L.L. and waht they put together is “R.H.T.C.”, which means this song could be G.O.O.D. but you don’t want to listen to it if it is a complete F.A.I.L. He calls this his theme song so if you see him live and hear it, throw your hands in the air and celebrate with the m.a.n.
Upon first listen to “The Killer Instinct”, you might ask yourself “is this Boston or is this Thin Lizzy?” It’s neither, for they are the Black Star Riders, but that 70’s swagger is part of their fun, at least for this song. The song is the title track to their Nuclear Blast album. If their sound is distinctive in a Thin Lizzy manner, it’s because these guys were Thin Lizzy but chose to change their name to start a new life, so Ricky Warwick, Scott Gorham, Damon Johnson, Robbie Crane, and Jimmy DeGrasso are the Riders, so get a chance to become familiar. They released their debut album in 2014 and the new one was released last week Friday.
Open Mike Eagle worked with Oddisee again and this is for the song “Celebrity Reduction Prayer”, and judging by the title, you might say it could be a statement of sorts. The song is a part of Mello Music Group’s forthcoming compilation Persona, coming on March 10th. You can pre-order the full album below via Bandcamp.
mut (Agonia), the new album by Code, will be ready for Europeans tomorrow and the album is being streamed at this very moment. The album will hit North America on March 10th although in truth, I’m sure it’s already being pressed up right now, if it isn’t finished and in a warehouse somewhere but we in North America will have to wait for just under two weeks to have our copies. Don’t wait though, for you can listen to it now by heading here.
