Chet Faker – Talk is Cheap (Ta-ku Remix)

The ‘genre killer’ has done it yet again

it seems that everything Ta-Ku gets his hands on instantly becomes gold, and it’s no different with his remix of Faker’s Talk is Cheap. Completely detaching any real lyrics and instead infusing scant lyrics layered over a building percussion. What starts as a somber tone builds up into an eruption of emotion around the half way point and continues through the song. Ta-ku really knows how to convey emotions through his building beats and sounds, and this is why so many people love his music. Take a listen for yourself and you’ll know what I mean…

20syl – Ongoing Thing feat. Oddisee

Not sure how I missed this….anyways its dope. 20syl one of my favorites DJ’s who never disappoints hooks up with Oddisee for this track and it really shows his production skill. 20syl one of the four DJ’s consisting of the French Turntablism group C2C, has been releasing a lot of his own material lately and has been featured on KillaStatic numerous times. Anyways, take a listen to his new track and enjoy.

A$AP Mob – Hella Hoes + Hot 97 Freestyle

A$AP Mob members Rocky, Ferg, Nast, and Twelvyy released a new single this week titled Hella Hoes and ironically it seems to be exactly what Tyler the Creator is making fun of in his Loiter Squad skit I Just Bought a New Bugatti (I’m Happy). However, it is still a banger and will be featured on A$AP Mob’s upcoming album L.O.R.D which is set to be released sometime this year, no confirmed date yet. While promoting their new single Hot 97 had the Mob over and Funkmaster Flex played “Who Shot You?” instrumental by Biggie while all members dropped in for a verse. Most notably Ferg and Rocky rapping back and forth and poking fun at 50 cent. Take a listen to both.
