Hip Hop continues to push the boundaries of music, artistic mediums, genres and expectations. With creations like Captain Murphy, collabs like Kendrick Lamaar, Earl Sweatshirt and Ab-Soul, the Australian dry wit from funk master, Donny Benet and D.R.A.M’s pop mix, our cup runneth over with talent and creativity.
Prime Cut: Cash Machine
Cut From: Hampton, USA
Flavours Of: Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa
D.R.A.M brings new meaning to the word catchy on ‘Cash Machine’ delivering this fresh blend of hip-hop and pop. D.R.A.M is a rapper with a nice voice which is rare, supported by a cheekish piano and light beat, this is one for grooving.
Artist: Donny Benet
Prime Cut: Working Out
Cut From: Sydney, Australia
Flavours Of: Client Liasion, Luke Million
Donny Benet is all about the funk as he dishes up a creamy delight in the form of ‘Working Out’. Rife with innuendo, this one’s not meant to be taken too seriously. Just sit back and enjoy the synthy goodness.
Artist: Danny Brown
Prime Cut: Really Doe
Cut From: Detroit, USA
Flavours Of: Schoolboy Q, Joey Bada$$
Planets collide on the newest tune from Danny Brown. Bringing together rap heavyweights Kendrick Lamaar, Earl Sweatshirt and Ab-Soul, ‘Really Doe’ is sinister and sly, with each verse served with both agression and poise.
Artist: Captain Murphy
Prime Cut: Crowned
Cut From: Los Angeles, USA
Flavours Of: Clipping, Flying Lotus
Flying Lotus’ animated alter ego Captain Murphy appears again, this time releasing ‘Crowned’ a short song that’s incredibly foreboding. One of the most threatening songs of the year, it’s not likely to pair well with a relaxing night at home alone.
