Typically not my cup of tea for the blog but, to be honest here this song is actually pretty good. Katy Perry Recruits the reggae legend Bob Marley’s own grandson Skip Marley for this groovy tune. This is definitely a Friday night tune for a time on the town. Check out the track ladies and gentlemen tell me what you think?

Atlanta’s new prodigy Villamorvilla or B.K.A. Villa has dropped a little motivational song for us lazy mofo’s this 2017. Shut The F*** Up N Grind (STFUNG). Villa and his House of Love imprint are not playing any games this 2017. Atlanta may have lost the Superbowl but they’ll get their W’s in music.
Derek Pope was formerly known as Kidd Upstairs for many years. He may have reformed his image a bit but his taste for dope beats and catchy hooks remain the same. The Cali native is no newcomer to the scene. He’s been a model of consistency and indie success for the last 4-5 years. He’s also the founder of the Top Floor Music Group label imprint. I’ve recently rediscovered Derek’s music on Soundcloud while browsing and digging for new music. Maybe if I knew that he changed his name I would have heard his new music sooner. None the less his talent has not dissipated one bit. I’m eager to post his music on our blog more often. Follow Derek on Soundcloud and Twitter today!
Riff Raff’s first project of 2017 is finally here for us all to enjoy. The Aquaberry Aquarius is full of saucy tracks, Would you expect anything less? The Houston native had recently called out Rapper 50 cent for a boxing matchup. This all could have been album promotion but based on the first listen the album is really solid. Peep Aquaberry Aquarius here and tell us what you think of the neon icon.

He continues to speak about the troubles of the African American community and the struggles in his hometown of Fayettevill North Carolina. Some food for thought on this day of civil rights prosperity. Listen to J. Coles-High For HoursHere.
Supreme NYC has had an explosive 2017 so far. Not only have their recent collabs been huge successes, but with the recent leaks of the Nike Collab for the Air Max Uptempo hitting the net a bit early and now their summer/spring collection look with Terry Richardson and Van Gogh leaking is it a problem for the street giant? NO!!! I don’t think so. The brands success is primarily built on their original pieces, hype, and collabs with other street brand giants. This will only make the fiends want more. I’m really feeling the pink piece, i just hope CAM’RON doesn’t beat me it(laughs). We’ll stay tuned for more leaks and keep you posted. Follow @mrbld_ for Supreme leaks and news on twitter and IG.
