Today we get to hear Euroz’s highly anticipated mixtape, The Foundation 2. If you couldn’t tell by the title, it is the follow up to The Foundation, which dropped last October. There is no doubt that Euroz has bars, but I have seen some questions about his versatility. He should silence those critics with the diversity he shows on tracks like King of Sorrow and Work. His typical lyricism is on display, and the instrumentals are solid, with many of the tracks having been produced by Alex Lustig. It is also very impressive that Euroz was able to craft an entire 20-song project without a single feature. Overall, this is one of the best mixtapes we have seen this year to date, and I highly recommend that everyone check it out below.

Mark Battles dropped off this new song featuring two of the other hottest emcees in the game, King Los and Dizzy Wright. Los and Dizzy have been getting a lot of hype lately, but Battles hasn’t. Hopefully this will help him get some of the recognition he deserves, as his verse was, in my opinion, the best on the track. I think Battles went a little harder than Dizzy and definitely outdid Los, both very impressive feats. It really is a great overall song though with a solid beat and three good verses. Check it out for yourself below.

I am really happy to announce that ILLogicalHipHop has partnered with a great up-and-coming rapper named BreadNwater. BreadNwater has a great flow and inspirational lyrics, and can sing on his own hooks as well. His combination of lyricism, flow, and versatility puts him in a class with very few other rappers. The music that BreadNwater makes just sounds better than the vast majority of what’s out there, and he raps on meaningful topics as well. He has done a ton of sick remixes and covers that actually come close to beating the originals by some huge artists (Childish Gambino, Macklemore, Mac Miller). I have been on a craze with his YouTube channel for the last couple days, and I can actually notice the improvement from his earlier songs to his newer stuff. BreadNwater has always been great, but the fact that he’s gotten so much better and is still improving makes me really hopeful that he will blow up in the future. He works extremely hard, writing and recording in his attic and filming awesome music videos for many of his songs. I strongly encourage everyone to check out BreadNwater’s YouTube channel and his mixtape, Candlelight (links below). You should all also stay on the lookout for more BreadNwater in the future, as he’s promised me that he has some incredible new music on the way.

ILLogicalHipHop is proud to announce a new partnership with EDWD, a great young up-and-comer. Far from a “traditional rapper,” EDWD is a 16-year old suburban white kid (I personally don’t think race should matter in rap, but I’m just pointing out that EDWD breaks the mold of a typical rapper) similar to the likes of Cam Meekins and Watsky. Despite his young age, EDWD has already released a ton of material, including two projects in the last five months. Even more impressive than the quantity of music he puts out is the high quality of that music. EDWD is clearly very intelligent, and the meaning and lyricism of his tracks can’t be matched by many rappers twice his age. I’m really excited to see what someone who is so good and still so young will be able to accomplish in the future. Right now, EDWD is releasing a new song every Friday as part of a Faded Fridays series. I encourage you to check those out here or on YouTube every week, and be sure to check out EDWD as many ways as you like below.
Def Jam signee Logic dropped this new single today. He fearlessly took on the instrumental from OutKast’s Ms. Jackson. Logic addressed this bold decision on the track, saying “Y’all probably think I’m crazy for touching this instrumental.” Anyone who listened to the song though will know that Logic completely went in. Roll Call will appear on Logic’s upcoming mixtape, Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever, which is set to release on May 7th. You can listen to the single below.

Connor dropped off a new track tonight called All 4 U to celebrate the launch of his new website, jonconnormusic.com. The track is sick; the lyrics are great as usual and he rhymes over a solid beat. But I thought the coolest thing we got from Connor tonight was his new website. You can read his bio here, and I strongly encourage you to do so. Reading that bio made me respect him as an artist 100 times more than I already did, and I already respected him a lot. Listen to All 4 U below, go check out jonconnormusic.com, and stay on the look out for Connor’s upcoming mixtape, Unconscious State, in the near future.

Today is a HUGE day for Logic. After announcing this morning that he had signed with Def Jam Records, Logic and XXL dropped Logic’s “Freshman Freestyle.” Logic is my favorite of this year’s freshmen, so his was the freestyle that I was most excited about. Luckily he did not disappoint. He only spits for about 45 seconds, but it is absolute fire. Check out the video below, and look out for Logic’s Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever to drop on May 7th.
