Things You May Have Missed 2014 Part 3

Curren$y – Drive-In Theatre

Curren$y is one of my favourite rappers, which is strange because Pilot Talk 2 is his only album that I would label a classic. The thing that makes him one of my favourites is because he is so unbelievably consistent. There is nothing all that new or original about his music, it’s just straight up hip-hop, but it’s done very well and the amount of music he makes is unbelievable. Drive-In Theatre is just another example of how damn good Curren$y is.

Damu The Fudgemunk – Public Assembly

Buttery smooth beats.

DaVinci x Sweet Valley – Ghetto Cuisine

Sweet Valley have been impressing me for a while, having dropped some mad instrumental projects, so when I heard they’d teamed with a rapper to make a tape I was extremely excited. Lyrically DaVinci isn’t anything special but he as a perfect delivery for Sweet Valley’s space age trap beats making this one of my favourite projects of the year.

Deniro Farrar – Rebirth

Not as good as Deniro’s sublime The Patriarch I and II but this EP is still a nice hard hitting collection of tracks that left me wanting more.

Dibiase – Schematiks

Meandering jazzy instrumentals.

The Doppelgangaz – Peace Kehd

2014 has been another excellent year for Mello Music Group and this Dopplegangaz release has added to that. Much like many of the MMG releases Peace Kehd has that golden age vibe but with enough of a modern twist to make it interesting.

G-Side – GzIIGodz

Full of 808s and heavy bass lines but not to be mistaken for your average trap release. Every track fits together perfectly, flowing throughout the album and making you feel like there is a story being told, even if you don’t know what it is.

Gangstagrass – Broken Hearts and Stolen Money

A mixture of hip-hop and blue grass. Sounds ridiculous but it works, just trust me.

Gillie Da Kid – King Of Philly 3

Decent hard hitting mixtape.

Grems – Buffy

I’ve never been a fan of most French rap. Apart from the odd track I always found the rapping lacked flow and the beats were very mediocre. This EP from Grems couldn’t be further from that. The beats on here are just incredible; strange, twisting instrumentals with a future beats vibe. Grems’ raps are also really on point, obviously I have no idea what he is talking about, but my gosh does it sound beautiful.
