The next generation of hip-hop superstars is hard at work early in this 2014 summer. That “New Young Niggas” track by Young Scooter is blazing a path through the ATL right now. It features Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug. Scooter, half of The Migos rap duo, makes his solo foray in preparation for his new mixtape 80’s Baby.

From ESPN’s “First Take” to “Larry King Now,” it seems like Trey Songz is all over TV. He’s all over music as well from 50 Cent’s tracks to his own ish and now some new Jim Jones music called “Wit The Shit.” It’s one of those turnt up R&B tracks that could get burn from the strip club and at the hottest campus party. The usual shit for Trey. By the way did I mention this is a Jim Jones track?

If your familiar with the vast history of hip-hop culture, particularly the early 80’s N.Y.C scene, then you know about the famous aerosol artist Skeme. He made legendary murals that covered the murky N.Y.C transit system. The 2014 version of Skeme has re-emerged in another type of artist, though this time from Inglewood. Check out his latest joint “Look What I Did” which features ATL’s #1 ‘Kang’ T.I.

Here’s some new fresh shit from Jhene Aiko featuring Cocaine 80’s called “To Love and Die.” The time is fast approaching for Aiko’s debut release and I can’t wait, personally. I’m sure Def Jam has a plan to try and take this track as high as the charts can reach. Of course Aiko’s talent is already in the stratosphere, whether or not “Love or Die” is a smash. Still though, it’s must-hear new music.

The kid araabMUZIK is a one man band when it comes to the MPC. A lot of us in the production world know how to make beats on it. Mr. MUZIK, though, is constantly trying to challenge the art of sample rates and chopped loops under mind-numbing tracks that pulsate at the speed of sound. His latest track, “Summer Time,” is an ode to instrumentalist-lovers everywhere.
