Torii Wolf – Flow Riiot [Album Stream]

Torii Wolf hits us with her debut album, “Flow Riiot”. Enter Torii Wolf, a singer/songwriter from Wantagh, New York who traded coasts-bouncing around West Coast cities and in doing so enhanced herself artistically; shunning categories, genres, confinement and convention. “Torii has such a weird, wicked style” Premier offers. “It’s just very left field-reminiscent of Bjork. She is just very unique and versatile; she writes, sings, is an accomplished guitarist and drummer. But image wise, there are no comparisons. Subject matter wise, Torii is in a whole different place. Torii is truly one of a kind.” The diversity of the subject matter that Premier touched on is a staple ingredient on Flow Riiot. The anthemic lead-single “Free” featuring Macklemore tackles the battle we face every day to be our authentic selves. Torii’s heart pumps cold and warns of impending doom over a virtual digital symphony and scratch chorus from Preem on “Big Big Trouble.” Conversely, Torii professes her undying love on “I’d Wait Forever And A Day” as Preem recruits his The Badder Band to add lush instrumentation for a sultry big band ballad that Torii’s voice longingly soars over. The stirring Mike Zombie (of Drake’s “Started From The Bottom” &

G Herbo – Stairwell Freestyle [Video]

G Herbo’s ‘Humble Beast’ album is out, and, well, he kills it. And the unassuming way he cuts through the air of a stairwell at MASS APPEAL HQ in New York City embodies the LP’s title, as the rapper formerly known as Lil’ Herb professes how far he’s willing to go to survive the streets. “Every day I walk out toting the pipe, shit it’s only right/ And I’ll go to jail tonight, at least you know I’m alright,” he raps in “a quick 12 [bars] or something, I don’t know.” Real casual. From swiping Nicki Minaj’s “Chi-raq” from under her to his ‘Welcome to Fazoland’ mixtape series, Herb’s been proving his worth on the mic since he was a teen. It’s all culminated in his long-awaited, proper debut album, which, as he instructs, you can get on “Apple Music, Tidal, Pandora, I don’t give a fuck.”

Run The Jewels – Mean Demeanor [Audio]

“El-P announced he was considered for the Blade Runner 2049 score. He wasn’t offered the gig, but as I believe he would’ve been perfect, I thought the pairing deserved to be heard. I will not profit from this and hope it is not blocked, but YouTube seems less interested in being cutting edge and exposure and more interested in playing it safe and holding Vevo’s hands. I don’t hold any copyrights, I just love all the pieces. Fair Use. Journey into the world 2049 with a replicant on the run. Dave Bautista is Sapper Morton. #BladeRunner2049, in theaters October 6.” – princeoftidds “Mean Demeanor” is also featured in EA Sports’ new FIFA 18 video game. Hear it below.

L’Orange feat. Blu & Elzhi – The Difference [Audio x Download]

L’Orange teams up with Blu and Elzhi on “The Difference” from his upcoming LP, “The Ordinary Man”. “The Ordinary Man” is the third solo album from producer L’Orange. Known for his early 20th century inspired style and stripped down jazz influence, L’Orange’s solo work is often very personal and intimate and the new album is no different. Although mostly instrumental, there are vocal features from underground legends like Del The Funky Homosapien, Blu, Elzhi and Oddisee, as well as up and coming artists like Koreatown Oddity, Chuuwee & Solemn Brigham. These features cement the narrative of the album, tying together a long form story. Conceptually, the album follows a magician from being an unknown to the biggest star in the world. Performing impossible feats for thousands of people, the magician eventually becomes disillusioned and bitter, blaming the world for not understanding his greatness. Although dark in tone, the album is reliably playful and absurd, taking a shadowy story and combining it with the most polished production we’ve ever seen from L’Orange. Stream/download “The Difference” below and pre-order the album here, before it drops on October 27th. The Ordinary Man by L'Orange
