TastemakersNJ Presents Summer Ale

If you know RTD, over the last five years, I’ve relished at the opportunity to highlight cats from Jersey who are dope. A lot of the homies out here are my age and older, but with the backing of the TastemakersNJ camp, Summer Ale highlights that new school of true Hip-Hop flavor that Jersey has. With beats from Thelonious Martin, Hot Grits and ATK, heads like Topaz Jones, Volition, Mars, Bugz and D-Dand show that fresh style from the new breed. I’m not sure who the oldest out of this crew is, but I know they are like Odd Future age, and have that sound that niggas want/need. Reminds me of the gray Maxell tapes I’d horde over, taping Princeton University’s “Vibes & Vapors” back in the day, looking for “that ol’ real shit”. Great project to get into for the Summer as well, be it some top down lazy afternoon sessions or some more crafty late night excursions. Make this the soundtrack to your Summer.
