Denmark Vessey: 'Sun Go Nova'

Denmark Vessey has always been a challenge to fully comprehend, and that's the case with most artists that are truly original.  With his new record Sun Go Nova he's done something we'd never expect.  This one is produced entirely by Earl Sweatshirt and Knxwledge.  A collaboration that evolved spontaneously from Earl proclaiming the greatness of Martin Lucid Dream, Denmark Vessey's 2015 album.  The album is chill, soulful, and full of those eccentric raps that will keep you playing them back over and over again.  Do yourself a favour and get this record.

Chris Orrick ft. Fashawn: 'Bottom Feeders'

Chris Orrick's upcoming album Portraits is a personal one, and it's followed some big decisions for the rapper.  This is the first album he'll release under his real name, having ditched the name Red Pill due to it's use as a term by a certain section of the population, especially online.  The choice can't have come easy, and the song 'Bottom Feeders' lets you in on the state of mind of the mc in this day and age.  Orrick and Fashawn trade verses masterfully, but it's some of the more vulnerable moments that really shine:

"Can't foresee winning, but quitting isn't an option either..."

'Bottom Feeders' is produced by Exile.  Listen to it below, and preorder Portraits here.
