J Cole’s new album dropped earlier this week. This is one of the better tracks on the album, but the whole album is beyond nice. Check it out here.
Don’t miss J Cole’s new single “Apparently.” Great stuff.
Bad Boy for Life – P. Diddy
This 2001 Diddy trak is an old time classic. The guitar riff adds a Walk This Way aspect and works perfectly with the flow of the entire song.
International Players Anthem – UGK (feat. OutKast)
UGK and OutKast collaborated in 2006 to create this fresh trak. It’s one of the best tunes UGK has ever released. It’s worth your time.
I’m sure many of you have already found this gem but if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat. Carlos Serrano mashes up Kanye and Sam Smith to make the perfect laidback ‘trak.’ Preserving Smith’s iconic piano and vocal riffs from “I’m Not the Only One” and overlaying them blissful Kanye rap, Carlos Serrano effectively creates a perfect “Chill” mashup. Enjoy.
This song is straight chilling (as is the album cover). ODESZA does not disappoint and delivers a catchy tune thats perfect for any occasion. Bump this when you’re doing your work, recovering from a long day, or when you need your day to turn around. Enjoy.
The already-great house trak, “Wasted Love,” has been remixed and transformed into an even more potent, heavy anthem by the dynamic duo: AN21 & Sebjak. The two came out with “Gods,” a while ago for SIZE records, and have made their name ever since.
Ty Dolla $ign teams up with Diplo and DJ Dahi to release a trak that is straight fire. Diplo–a DJ known for his trap anthems–has really honed his production skills and seamlessly transitions from his trap roots to the hip-hop scene. Song’s a beauty.
Lisztomania is a classic. Parrad preserves the integrity of the original and adds in a laidback drop which is perfect to vibe out to. Grab your nicest headphones for this one.
Whats Luv – Ashanti ft. Fat Joe :
This old tune by Fat Joe and Ashanti is definitely worth your time. With Ashanti’s catchy hook and fresh verses from Fat Joe, we know you’ll like this throwback.
Wouldn’t Get Far (The Game ft. Kanye West):
The Game and Kanye teamed up to make this dope track in 2006 and we’re sure you’ll appreciate that we’re bringing it back to you.
Game’s Pain – The Game (ft. Keyshia Cole)
One of The Game’s better tracks on his 2008 LAX album, Game’s Pain reflects on hip-hop history and does so with a sweet beat and meaningful lyrics.
FKJ is one of my favorite chill producers who I had forgotten about until just now. I stumbled across his remix of ZHU’s “Paradise Awaits” and immediately created a playlist of traks so that they wouldn’t get buried in my iTunes Library. FKJ’s remix is spectacular. He builds off ZHU’s original life, but slows it down and makes it more laidback. Enjoy.
Here are some of his other gems:
No words. BEAUTIFUL.
