Skyzoo and Torae – Barrel Brothers

Two of New York’s finest and underrated MCs. Both of these guys really no how to go in on a track and prove it on this album.

Slakah The Beatchild – Soul Movement Vol. 2

A wonderful mix of velvety soul tracks and bumping instrumentals to get your head nodding.

Squadda B – 10th Grade Dropout and Side A-Side B (June)

Weird and extremely Lo Fi beats with slurred raps. Not for everyone but if you like Lil B you’ll probably like this guy.

Step Brothers – Lord Steppington

Alchemist and Evidence combine for one of my favourite albums of the year. Alchemist is undoubtedly one of today’s best producers and he really brings something fresh on here, making some incredibly complex beats that suit Evidence’s precision raps perfectly.

ZelooperZ – HELP

The Bruiser Brigade members have now all dropped fantastic mixtapes, making up for the somewhat lacklustre ‘Old’, and it has me extremely excited for their collaborative album. ZelooperZ is one of the stranger guys in the bunch and shines on this tape with frantic instrumentals and maniacal raps. This really isn’t for everyone as ZelooperZ seems to be going out of his way to be as offensive as he can in every way possible but the energy here is off the charts.
