[Hip-Hop/Rap:] Mile High (feat. Travis Scott & Metro Boomin)
Got a real wavy one to share with you all. British producer James Blake collabs with rappers Travis Scott and Metro Boomin’ on “Mile High”. An ambient hip-hop number with influences of soul and R&B, met with the lit flair Scott and Boomin’ often bring. James Blake’s contrasting vocals to the raps create a harmonic atmosphere of relaxing, yet energetic vibes.
Be sure to check this one out and also check out James Blake’s recently released album, Assume Form, full of pop, electropop, soul & R&B influenced jams.

[Independent Hip-Hop:] The U-Express (feat. Defcon) – 9th Wonder
Got some real hip-hop for ya hip-hop heads. This throwback comes from my earlier days (circa 2007-2010) when I was still a much bigger rap head. I had good friends who were plugged into some life-changing rap music from artists such as 9th Wonder, Chaundon, Murs, Little Brother, Cam’Ron, The Alchemist and more. Music from these guys and from that era will live with me for the rest of my life. Not simply because it is real hip-hop, without all the bling, gimmicks, etc. But this is music that will always bring me back to those days several years ago, and anytime I listen to it I feel…uplifted.
Take some time and rewind with this very chill, independent hip-hop number, fresh from my nostalgic mind.
