Cali MC/Producer Evidence has leaked another track of his upcoming LP, Green Tape Instrumentals. "Waste of Time" is some hard hitting Boom Bap that flexes Ev's production, and proves that he's equally versed on the decks as he is on the mic.
SMKA produced track 8, "Have You Seen Her" ft. Hit Screwface. ESGN dropped a couple weeks ahead of schedule (July 9th) after an error with the distribution company leaked the album. This is Gibbs' first project after leaving CTE and Jeezy, and is sure to cement Gibbs' status as one of the realest rappers in the game.
Six different talents come together as one on an epic scale when DJ and production crew The Bangerz' members Goldenchyld, Replay, Nick Ngo, Cutso, Squareweezy, and G-Wrex merge. The legendary production and turntablism crew emerges victorious on "Legends Never Die," as their innovative approach leads to a genre-transcending banger mixing elements of hip hop with electronic music. As a six-person crew, the group takes a Frankenstein-like approach to creating their music.

As the swagged-out Chippy Nonstop, who was recently named a Red Bull Sound Select Artist prepares to release her new EP, entitled #finallyverified, on June 25th, she lets loose boisterous banger "Pimpin Season." However, she's going to make you work for it. In the Pimpin' Season Memory Match game, the track is available as a reward once all of the snapshots of pop culture icons and stills from the track's upcoming video have been paired, revealing Chippy's announcement that "it's hot right now, bitch it's pimpin' season."
She discusses this unique project, explaining, "I wanted to use an innovative way to give some of my fans a preview. I was just brainstorming and remembered the Memory card game that I played a lot as a kid, and thought it would be cool to play a game to get people to preview my EP. I designed and built the game with my homie Manuel Palou of Art404."
The track serves as the first cut on Chippy's #finallyverified, which is dropping on June 25th. Chippy's status as high social media royalty is well-documented at this point, as evidenced by her affiliation with YoungKloutGang, a group of fellow artists running their social networking with aplomb. Yet, one indicator of online prestige had previously eluded her-now with the ubiquitous blue check mark finally next to her name on Twitter, Chippy celebrates on the new six-track project with collaborators Kitty, Bukkweat Bill, Chapman, and Speakz.

Here's the second leak off Rilgood's upcoming "Kingdom" Mixtape due out later this summer. The song touches on the nature of dictatorship and corruption that took place in Nigeria and many African countries for the past few decades. Instead of being preachy, Rilgood wrote the record with the attitude and disposition of the corrupt African leaders while maintaining the Brooklyn aura.

We here at DTR are thrilled to announce the newest addition to our talent roster -- the immensely talented, hard working and perennial road warrior, Blueprint. The Columbus-based entrepreneur-artist recently joined the booking ranks here at Deep Thinka, and after a of decade of working together in a smaller capacity, we couldn't be happier to have him fully on board.
To that extent, we're announcing dates on the Bend But Don't Break Tour, featuring Blueprint and his Weightless Record comrade, Illogic. Together, the dynamic duo go by the name Greenhouse. After after an almost 2 year long hiatus, Greenhouse is back at it; wasting no time and refining each line on their new album, Bend But Don't Break (due out July 9) and of course taking it all out on the road for a national run of dates. Scheduled to begin mid-July and run straight through August, the Bend But Don't Break tour will have Greenhouse "rockin' mics and lovin' life" in the east, west, north, south and everywhere else in-between.
Blueprint & Illogic will be hitting the road for their first national headlining tour as Greenhouse, in support of their upcoming album Bend But Dont Break. The tour dates will run from July 12th through August 31st. Please note: the below list is just the shows that are confirmed so far–it is not a complete list. More dates will be announced over the coming weeks.
