Jon Connor Announces Unconscious State Release Date


Jon Connor tweeted the above today. Unconscious State, his next project, will drop on June 4th. It is not yet clear if the project will be a free mixtape or an album for purchase. All of Connor’s music is album-quality anyway, so I’m just excited that we finally have a release date. Unconscious State is believed to have features from Danny Brown, Tito Brown, and Royce da 5’9″. Connor is also going to be releasing a collaboration LP, called Unsung Heroes, with Chris Webby over the summer. Hopefully, these two projects will help Connor get the recognition and respect he deserves for making such great music. Connor also tweeted that he will be releasing the first leak from Unconscious State next Monday, so be sure to check back for that.


Who You Mad At? Me or Yourself? – Funkmaster Flex


I have already posted three songs off this tape: the tracks by J. Cole, Childish Gambino, and Chris Webby. At first those were the only songs I was going to post, but as I looked over the tracklist I changed my mind. I would never listen to a lot of the rappers featured on the project, but there are also a ton of artists on here that have the potential to murder a song. The 56-track project includes artists such as Joey Bada$$, Wale, Slaughterhouse, Fabolous, and Schoolboy Q, to name just a few. I will probably end up listening to all of their songs and more, just to make sure I don’t miss any gems. If you want to hear the full mixtape, you can check it out below on HotNewHipHop.

Side note: I don’t know why this is a Funkmaster Flex mixtape. I guess it’s because he got in touch with all of these artists and compiled these  songs, but he doesn’t rap or produce any music for the project. The only contribution Flex has is annoyingly shouting his name and other random noise when we are trying to listen to music. The audio quality is also poor. It really is too bad that he is famous and influential enough to get all of these great artists on a project with him.

Conan – Chris Webby


This is the third song I have listened to from Funkmaster Flex’s Who You Mad At? Me or Yourself?, and so far I think it is my favorite track on the mixtape. The instrumental is a lot better than those from the J. Cole and Childish Gambino songs. Webby always has a nice flow, but his lyrics seemed sharper and more on point than usual in this song. Listen for yourself below.
