Notes:

I am going to start featuring one album from the previous week every Monday because there is so much good music that I believe is going unheard.   And this album from French producer, Astro Vandalist,  is something that you guys need to be made aware of.  It’s 17 tracks of unadulterated and potent hip hop.  The beats really hit hard and you can see by this lineup of emcees that there are some heavy hitters on here.

Check out and cop the whole thing as it is worth every penny, but here are my favorite tracks if you want a sampling!

Nine – Killmonger (Video)

Nine has been keeping his name buzzing for a few months as his new project, King, is set to drop on Septemeber 9th.  I am admittedly needing a late pass on this cut/video because it has been out for a moment.  It’s been sitting in my inbox for more than a few days and I just peeped it moments ago, and it’s pretty damn sensational.  Nine sets himself apart on this track Killmonger, produced by the Snowgoons, offering an alternative to the cookie-cutter mentality that abounds out there.   The writing was really on point and the track has an epic sound about it.
