VIDEO: Cozz "Knock The Hustle" (J. Cole remix)

Cozz released a remix of "Knock The Hustle", a track that feels like a classic almost instantly.  The heavyweight beat, black and white video, and substance over flash style from Cozz make for something we love at first listen.  On this remix he brings along J. Cole for a verse and both mc's prove they are some of the dopest doing it right now.  We love how Cozz and J. Cole push all the corny nonsense to the side and deliver powerful lyrics with clarity and confidence.  Get this track on "Cozz & Effect", the 2014 album from Cozz: iTunes

Preview: Kodak to Graph at the Drake 4/8!

Kodak to Graph hit the road this week on the "Break The Ice" tour.  It follows the release of the incredible album "Isa".  This debut record is simply astonishing, an unexpectedly brilliant electronic album by a highly creative and innovative producer.  Kodak to Graph makes quite an impression from the very first listen, and is sure to have a profound effect on those lucky enough to make it to these dates across North America.  April 8th the tour hits Toronto, at the Drake Hotel.  The infamous Drake Underground has been home to so many incredible shows with artists that we've only just discovered.  The perfect locale, and a new artist with a very original sound makes for one inviting evening.

Classic: UNKLE "Rabbit In Your Headlights"


In case this was a bit before your time, or you just never got around to checking it out, here's the timeless classic (both in audio and visual respects) "Rabbit In Your Headlights" from UNKLE.  To be clear, this masterpiece is produced by DJ Shadow and James Lavelle (who comprise UNKLE) AND Thom Yorke.  That's a pretty insane combination going on that will likely not happen again.  In fact we are lucky that it ever happened at all!  The video, directed by Jonathan Glazer, is INSANE and one of the best ever in this particular medium.  Make sure you watch the whole thing.

Alchemist + Earl Sweatshirt + Action Bronson "Warlord Leather"


Here's an extra dope new track from The Alchemist, easily one of the best to ever do it in hip hop, featuring two superhero mcs, Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt.  You're in for it on this one.  Exceptional boom bap break style drums, high energy guitar stabs and some funked out bongos in there.  Not to mention two huge verses from these two gems of new school hip hop.  Home run.
