I don't know about you, but the grind doesn't stop over here. When that work has to be done, you need the proper soundtrack to get through it, which is why I'm digging this new instrumental series The Other Guys are embarking on. Their new EP, The Working Class, is a boom bap-y batch of beats that will help motivate you to be great. Hell, it even features Tanya Morgan's Von Pea on the intro (and yes, that beat is included as an instrumental as well).

You can stream and download The Working Class for $free.99 over on Bandcamp, and grab that new Tanya Morgan album, YGWY$4, while you're at it.

Back in October of 2016, Aesop Rock and Homeboy Sandman dropped the second installment of their Lice series with Lice Two: Still Buggin', and in a similar fashion, they shocked my world with the third installment, the amazingly-titled Triple Fat Lice. It's another limited vinyl/free download release, with five bangers featuring production from Oh No, Ben Boogz (word to 2 Hungry Bros), Quelle Chris, and more. "Pins And Needles" is a beautiful way to start ANY project, trust.

You can stream the full project below, grab a free digital download via Bandcamp, and order the vinyl release via Stones Throw.

iLL-Omega Is Back With A New Instrumental Tape, 'Omegatron'

No Comments »

If you're looking for a batch sinister sounds for your Saturday excursions, iLL-Omega's got you covered. Fresh off an EP with Ray Strife, Omega's back with Omegatron, a 14-track instrumental release that's as dark as it is turnt. It's primarily of a hip-hop flex, although some of the more EDM-tinged trap tracks are nothing to sleep on.

You can stream that below; be sure to check out the Rocky's House Podcast as well, which iLL is a part of. Episode one is up now, and features DJ Say Whaat and DJ Itsjustahmad.
