Audio: @YavesEllis @SlingShotMG - "Revolver" (@sohhPR)

Audio: Yaves - "Revolver"

Josh: Yaves releases new single Revolver. The content is an infiltration into a culture that is in need of a revolution. "Stupidity is gold now-a-days/ all these gold chains got them rapping like slaves/talking sideways I want to snatch them off stage/ how you cop Jís and your bills ainít paid", Yaves' dexterity, darting mind, and ability to stack unusual ideas is front and center on this single. With the help of Keisha Soleil on the hook, and production courtesy of Z4L, Revolver shows the skill-set that Yaves has to take the small details of an issue, and paint a portrait of the larger picture.

Audio: @Iamflytyy @jazzepha @MarkMurrille - "Mexico"

Audio: Fly Ty f/ Jazze Pha & Mark Murrille - "Mexico"

Joe: Against Da Grain Ent / Desert Storm artist Fly Ty surfaces for the first time this year, but he's not riding solo. Ty enlists the talents of Jazze Pha and Mark Murrille who not only adds a verse, but he provides the production as well. Serving the demand in the streets, "Mexico" is a slow winding single laced with cocaine-infused bars from start to finish.

Video: Divine Suns - "Divine Suns" (dir. Magnesium)

MAP: Video Description: Some of the greatest stories have never been told. Some of the best songs have never been heard. At least not on radio. Such is the case with the Atlanta collective of Divine Suns. A narrative that began in heated cyphers on the campus of Morehouse College sees the light of day with a crisp and humble visual treatment. And while not household names, they are hardly new to the game.

Red Pill Releases Free EP prod. Oddisee, Apollo Brown, Duke Westlake

MMG: "Credit to my father for the way that he raised us
When it was hard, we could always complain but
Somebody had it harder for whatever it's worth
Remember he would tell me it could always be worse
So lookin' back on my childhood, It wasn't all so bad
I guess I could smile... you could see me smile"
- Red Pill
