You should know who Dave East is by now but if you don’t go do yourself a favour an download all his mixtapes, Black Rose especially..Dudes a beast! Best thing out of Harlem, NY since Big L in my opinion. His latest mixtape offering “Hate Me Now”, drops October 2. Decent guests and production on this.
DJ Sammy B-Side has meticulously gone through the ever growing High Focus crates and carefully pulled out a delicately balanced selection of bangers and gems from the HF arsenal for your listening pleasure. Stream or download.
A few years back the Pete Rock tweeted a co-sign for a young dude out the North Cakalak going by the name of Lute, rapping over one of Pete Rocks beats jacked for his mixtape, West1996. I dig the laid back flow.
Haven’t really been checking much since but other than his crews mixtape ‘704’ there’s been a big bit of fuck all, which is a shame.
I’ll leave you with the mixtape that created a buzz. Worth a look incase you missed it.
Check the clip from his Forever FC crew titled, ‘Warning’
