Won’t front: I missed the whole “Trap Queen” explosion until it was well on it’s way. Here’s the latest from Fetty Wap through. Hit or is dude destined to be the next Trinidad James?
– The Five Best Fetty Wap Songs You Need To Hear [WatchLoud]
Excellent (but far too short) new track from two Kitchen favorites, Slum Village and De La Soul off the forthcoming new Slum album, YES! dropping next week (6.16.15).
Also De La-related ICYMI: check out the Hot Chip track, “Love Is The Future” featuring Posdnuos from their recently-released Why Make Sense? album.

Pumpkinhead feat. Supastition & Wordsworth – Trifactor

Gotta give the homie, J.Nolan mad props.
