    He just broke the instagram live record with over 2 million viewers at once, god damn.

      Damn bro I see you posting these fire tracks that haven’t necessarily blown up yet. Where do you find these?

      This song is dope as fuck, never heard of the guy but I’ll be peeping his other shit tonight. Dude flows over the beat effortlessly and it fits his flow so well.

      1. 5

        Shit, I don’t even know how I know them. Just do I guess. Wanted to help this site out so I post them randomly when I think of it.

        I don’t really know about these dudes. I think they are Loaf Muzik affiliates or something like that. Loaf Muziks got some dope shit if you like this sound

        1. 3

          Damn that’s tight. Good shit posting too, hopefully this place takes off because I fuck with it.

          I haven’t listened to Loaf Muzik in forever but I remember liking them a lot. I’ll check some of their stuff out again and read up on who they link with, thanks bro!

        Okay I hate Chris Brown as a person as much as the next guy, but this mixtape is full of hits. I didn’t expect much going into it but haven’t skipped a single track.

        I’m big on thugger and I never thought Chris Brown would sound good with him, but god dam they’ve got crazy synergy in the booth. I’d bet my next paycheck on at least a couple of these tracks charting on Billboard once it hits Spotify/AM.

        That being said, it’s still and has always been fuck CB.

          AZ - Royale Salute is a nice warning shot to 50 Cent

          1. 1

            Damn this is dope, haven’t heard this before. Good looks

          1. 1

            This is great. Just looked him up too, I’m surprised he’s apparently only 17!

            1. 6

              Illmatic and GRODT are some obvious good ones but I think recently The Water[s] and 1999 match up.

              1. 2

                Damn yeah both of those are solid debuts for sure

              1. 2

                If you ever get the chance to see Amine live do it, he puts on a fantastic show

                1. 1

                  I have, he’s phenomenal.

                1. 3

                  One of my favorite rap duos

                  1. 2

                    Same man, it’s wrong how slept on they are to casual hiphop fans

                    I’m honestly surprised they aren’t as popular as Flatbush Zombies

                    1. 2

                      They share a lot of the same fanbase though, I get what you mean but I don’t know many Flatbush fans who don’t also like UA

                  1. 4

                    Lupe Fiasco + Radiohead for a full album; Lupe’s production is usually very clean already and whoever mixes and masters Radiohead’s music does an absolutely insane job. I feel like the grand orchestral style of some of their more recent material would blend super well with Lupe’s headier rapping

                    Rod Wave + Mike Dean: Rod Wave could absolutely sing his heart out over some crazy Mike Dean guitar solos and synths

                    1. 1

                      I’d be so on board for both of these. I had no idea I wanted Lupe x Radiohead to happen until just now, but it sounds like it would work perfectly.

                    1. 2

                      Wow I had no idea Kenny Beats produced this, this came out 4 years ago. Crazy to see Kenny’s progression as a producer.

                      1. 3

                        Yeah man, he’s been in the game for awhile now. If you didn’t already know, he’s been an EDM producer for awhile as LOUDPVCK, which was originally a duo but has been just Kenny since 2017. It’s definitely not hiphop, but it shows his versatility as a producer pretty well.

                        1. 2

                          really not a fan of the loudpvck style but it kinda opened my eyes to his skill as a producer

                          like imo his hiphop beats can be pretty bland a lot of the time but he could absolutely make some unique shit if he wants to

                      1. 4

                        Isaiah Rashad x Metro Boomin - Metro Boomin, being as versatile as he is, could easily make some unique beats that suit Isaiah, who seemingly can flow over a number of different style beats. As seen from the Zay snippets with Kenny Beats, he can make more trap-oriented “bangers” while keeping his same effortless cadence.

                        Aminé x The Alchemist - Aminé is more known for his bubbly, trappy instrumentals, but pairing him with a sample-heavy producer like Alc could lead to some magic. Aminé is another prime example of a rapper who can fit the vibe of whatever beat he’s on, and while rapping over Alc instrumentals might be a different challenge altogether, I think he’d manage just fine. Hell this makes me want to find some isolated Aminé vocals and lay them on top of an Alchemist beat just thinking about it, mostly out of curiosity.

                        Ski Mask the Slump God x Dr. Dre - This one definitely won’t happen imo, but it’d be interesting without a doubt. Putting some DROWN IN DESIGNER era Ski Mask over some subtly intricate Dre beats would be ridiculous, and don’t get me started about if Dre [executive] produced an entire concept album for Ski a la GKMC. (Not trying to say Ski is remotely in the same class as Kendrick or that it would hold a candle to GKMC)

                        1. 1

                          all of these would be unreal, especially the last one

                        1. 4

                          I’d say it’s partially due to the fact that hiphop is constantly evolving and morphing as opposed to genres like rock, where a band doesn’t entirely need to change their sound to stay relevant as long as the music is still great.

                          Yeah, if a rapper keeps pumping out similar sounding music that manages to still be amazing over time, people will acknowledge it, but it might be a bit more niche and won’t gain as much mainstream momentum as a new school artist. But if a classic rock group dropped a new album after a hiatus, they’re more likely to succeed again within the genre, if that makes sense. If Led Zeppelin dropped a new album next week it’d do numbers, but if Rakim drops an album, it’ll likely only do well within hiphop communities and not so much radio.

                          Now if Rakim dropped a new album that had fresh, unique beats and shifted to a more modern sound for the production, that’d catch the attention of quite a few more people. A Rakim x Metro Boomin collab album (which sounds really out of place to even type) would have a lot of potential for some current day radio hits and expose the more mainstream audience to Rakim’s earlier work as well.

                          Ultimately, only time will tell, because as you said hiphop is a young genre in comparison. I could be entirely wrong here, who knows.

                          1. 1

                            now you got me wanting a Rakim and Metro collab tape damn

                          1. 1

                            Honestly could be my favorite rap song ever no cap
