Ashley T Visual – Beats!!


Just got hip to this producer via YouTube and love the beats she makes. Lots of different styes from this multidisciplinary artist. Her first EP is up on Bandcamp and you can follow her channel here.

Dig this? Check out the last post I made about JAZZ i’m listening to.

Stuff I’ve been Listening to 21 – (Raps)

What up tho? This is not a playlist of all time greatest rap songs, my favorite rappers, or even the best raps to come out in the past 6 years. These are just a few songs that I remember playing over and over by various MCs. Mostly in the US and the UK.
Every year I upload a bunch of songs or podcasts that I’m listening to. Because music is such a big inspiration for me as an artist I do this pretty frequently. Theres so much music coming out compared to when I was a teen. I’d say DJs are still the best way to hear the good shit. Going to festivals is good. So is checking out playlists on streaming services.
Some folks I’d like to mention that you might have passed up because they’re got enough buzz are Freddie Gibbs x AlchemistBabies & Fools, Nipsey Hussle-Double Up, Nas-Speechless, annnnd, what are you listening to rhyme wise? Like, you play it on REPEAT type shit.
Ok if you missed some of the previous playlists like this I made feel free to check out some of them here:

That’s it fam. If you missed this hip hop documentary, check it out. Its the legendary Souls of Mischief!

Ayentee – A year of songs

What up hip hop fans. My homie Ayentee (MC/Producer/Dad) has been making hip hop for over 20 years. He has released several albums and collaborative projects. This year he started a new endeavor to release a song every week I believe. And so far it is has been amazing to hear both content, rhyme, and beat wise! If you’re over 30 you’ll really feel this one. Listen and share!

Buy his first 12 songs, the LP is called “The Fall”

Stuff I’ve been listening to – 12

Wow, I must have listened to this song 20 times playing the bridge over and over. Gabby Wilson aka H.E.R. is an incredible musician and deserves every single praise and or accolade. These are a bunch of songs I’ve had on repeat recently. You can see the last “Stuff I’ve been listening to” HERE

Temani really gives a different style on this one. Unlike any voice i’ve heard recently.

This is an old one, but I’ve been listening to a lot of house lately. Good vibes please! Both Yvette and Spinna did their thing on this! Makes me want to dance every time I hear it.

Destani Wolf’s voice is a thing to behold. I’ve been in the same room as her while she sang and it just lifts you off the ground. Headnodic of Crown City Rockers produced this incredibly vibe filled beat.

This entire EP is fire. Just head nod material from start to finish!
