Big Boi - Gossip Ft. UGK and Big KRIT

New music coming out of the dirty south with Big Boi, UGK, and newly crown King of the south Big KRIT. The iconic dirty south emcees had more than enough fire power to deliver some incredible music to the game. Big Boi's single Gossip has it all by having a heavy beat, some country slang, and lyrical fortitude that brings together the forefront of what hip hop music should represent.

Big Boi pays tribute to the late Pimp C from UGK by sampling some of his lyrics and a verse from Pimp C's grave which gave the track it's life. Big Boi has been staying low but now he is back ready to make some more noise in the game and with the collab from UGK and Big KRIT only betters the situation.

Take a look at this interview with Big KRIT as he talks about the collab with Big Boi and Bun B from UGK.

Childish Gambino Freestyles on Sway In The Morning

Childish Gambino has made a name for himself and hip hop journalist/DJ Sway had Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino on his morning show #SwayInTheMorning the other day. According to Sway, Childish Gambino has "flows off the top of the head. He's one of the most interesting guys to rap right now, because his metaphors come out Neptune before it ricochets to Earth." Huge complement for Gambino to get a quote like that from a guy like Sway.

Be on the look out for Childish Gambino's new album coming out on July 4th called Royalty. Childish Gambino came on to Sway In The Morning and gave the world a sneak peak of the album plus a freestyle over Biggie's 10 Crack Commandments. Donald Gover is known for being on the TV screen for his acting work on the show Community, but after this freestyle things might have changed for Childish Gambino as he became a respected hip hop emcee.

XV - Stone Cold (Official Video)

We posted the XV track Stone Cold a few weeks back before he dropped Popular Culture with the anticipation of the single being on the album but XV decided the song needed its own spice by making a video. The Shocker black and gold is represented well in the video as Vizzy takes the video onto the bball court at Wichita State University. The visual plus the Stone Cold track represents Wichita the home town where the Squarian leader originated. XV covers all bases of lyrical content with his music and Stone Cold holds true to that as he rips up the Kendrick Lamar Recipe instrumental.

Smoke DZA - Rugby Thompson

Smoke Dza is the Kush God and his long grind in the NYC hip hop game has placed him as one of the most down to earth emcee that listeners will come across. RRRRiiight, Smoke Dza has a new album that Henry Fraud produced called Rugby Thompson and the entire joint is smooth. The Kush God doesn't let down on the smokers references and the polo swag is strong with Dza so he lays down some creative lines about his threads. With hip hop being a hype game and who can snag the next 5 min. of fame, hip hop artists has lost touch of reality and most of them are undeveloped lyrically. It is good to know that Smoke Dza has been making great music for a long time and having Henry Fraud there to produce the entire album allows for Rugby Thompson to have the potential to be a classic.

The features on the Rugby Thompson album gave Dza the arsenal to complete his mission to make it one of kind album. Turnbuck ft. Action Bronson is the wrestling anthem for Dza's obsession for professional wrestling. Bronson and Dza throws down rhymes as they tag team the beat and jump off from the top rope to knock out a mean track.  Curren$y and Smoke Dza had to do a track together and the two top smokers in the game created some fire with Baleedat. The smooth track jams and probably one of the more versatile tracks on the album. Smoke Dza makes another incredible album with plenty of herbs and polo action to listen to.

Also support the homie Smoke Dza and buy the album on iTunes.

The twitter actions is nuts, might as well joint the interactive craziness right here @MidwestSounds we will keep you up to date on the hip hop music news.

Danny Brown - Grown Up (Official Video)

Danny Brown's video Grown Up is the definition of a hip hop visual. The concept of the track and the video just fits perfectly with a day in the life of a young Danny Brown. The kid actor playing Danny Brown takes the audience through the streets of Detroit on the day when he loses his teeth.

The song Grown Up has a great tempo and Danny Brown has a well written story about the day he lost his teeth. There is tons of creative thought behind this track, it is pretty clever when you hear Danny basically says he doesn't care if he has lost his teeth, the dream of being the greatest emcee growing up never left his side.

Usher has been playing it cool and now it's time to make the ladies scream. With Usher being around for almost two decades it's crazy to think he is a veteran in the game. The hits still pumping out of from Usher and his newest video to his single is called Scream. 

Usher plays an important roll in a lot of inspiring R&B singers that we would have never really gotten to know. Artists like Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and Justin Bieber wouldn't have the careers they have now if Usher hadn't pave the path for them.

It's awesome to know that Usher is still throwing down some music, we've seen Usher go through a lot from Confessions pt.1 & pt.2 but he never fell short to tell his fans the story of his life.

Wale - I'm Good (Freestyle)

DJ Money asks Wale to jump on the track Pharrell produced I'm Good. Wale is known for laying down some mean bars and on this track Wale brings his A game.

Most say it is a freestyle but Wale himself said at the beginning of the track that "this isn't a freestyle but more like a remix." Don't get it twisted Wale still kills it, but even a freestyle is well prepared before Wale to drop it.
The I'm Good track originally had The Clipse and Pharrell, and with Wale now on the track it sounds like he should have been on the original cut.

XV - Andy Warhol Ft. Slim The Mobster

With Popular Culture just a week away, XV releases another single off his album called Andy Warhol. The hits continue to roll out from the #Squarians General. The idea behind Popular Culture is XV proving that hip hop can be lyrical and have pop references to make a point get across.

Andy Warhol ft. Slim The Mobster takes listeners through a scene when XV was asked to jump on the BET cypher. When producers said he had one verse to drop, Vizzy threw down 24 bars to blow the audience's mind away. There is a definite protest imagery to XV's Popular Culture album by using Andy Warhol as a subject line. The song proves to mainstream hip hop that XV is about innovate the game to new heights just like Warhol did for art. At first Warhol's artwork was deeply criticized but after Warhol's death people still talk about his legacy today. XV plays an important role in keeping in mind the concept of an entire album having a story that is relative to others.

Curren$y Ft. Fiend - Legal Crack

After the drop of The Stone Immaculate, Curren$y has had a pretty busy month of June and it's not even half way through the month!

Curren$y has seen it all in this small amount of time, from being raided on the tour bus by the Feds and seeing the homie TradeMark Da Skydiver getting locked up, then having to jump on 106 & Park with Big KRIT. Let's just say Fly Spitta is in need of a break after he gets off tour.

Back to the music and The Stone Immaculate. Curren$y released a single off his album featuring Fiend and the two rip it up on Legal Crack. The single is a bonus track off of The Stoned Immaculate and it explains that the entire Jet Set crew is on top of the game and about their grind. The concept of the track is great due to the fact that they believe their music is crack but don't let the reference fool you, Curren$y and Fiend back up what they say with they lifestyle they live.

XV - Be There, Be Square (Track)

During his set at Dancefestopia, XV and Complex Music released a new joint called Be There, Be Square. Not only did Vizzy drop it on the internet but he performed it with another area emcee Irv Da Phenom.

As for the song itself, the Xaphoon beat is so smooth and calls out hip hop when you hear. XV keeps it Vizzy and reps his #Squarian #L7 movement, but XV also lets you into the mind and experience of a true #Squarian.

XV knew it was going to be tough to make in hip hop being from little old Wichita KS. What Vizzy did was believed in himself and mastered his craft to make an impact on hip hop industry. He did this by being himself and success are paying off. Example of XV being true to himself, and his music is when XV talks about growing up doing talent shows throwing up the ROC up and rapping like HOVA, now when he sees Watch The Throne he just sees a chair. On Be There, Be Square, XV speaks on being himself a square nerd that loves music and comic books, plus a whole much more.

Listen on XV - Be There, Be Square
