Amethyst Rockstar (feat. Kirk Knight) [prod. MF DOOM] – Joey Bada$$


Amethyst Rockstar is the newest leak off of Joey Bada$$’s upcoming mixtape, Summer Knights. The NY rapper grabbed a feature from his fellow Pro Era crew member Kirk Knight for this banger. Joey brought sick lyrics as usual. I haven’t listened to Kirk Knight in the past, but in my opinion he at least matched if not outdid Joey on this track. MF DOOM provided the rappers with a nice beat to rhyme on. I will definitely be on the lookout for more work from all of these artists in the future. Remember to listen to Summer Knights on July 1.

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.
