I won’t lie: I melt over a good hip hop love song. A smooth beat, intimate lyrics and slick wordplay are the best ways to romance my heart. “Land of Passion,” produced by Dublohskytzo, from Yamin Semali’s latest project Senior Dues, speaks to all these facets of soul connectedness. Produced by B.K. Jackson and Mike Robertson, the visuals are warm and inviting, showing Yamin chillin’ with his lady, sharing in her space, vibing to her vinyl collection. Get into it below and pick up that Senior Dues here!

Every Friday someone asks me, “what’s happ’nin’ this weekend??” This will be the place for you to find out. If you have an event you’d like to submit to be featured, email me with the subject “Event Submission.” I’ll feature it, along with other events happening within the same time frame. If it’s particularly dope, I’ll feature a more detailed write-up of your event.
(Right now, most events featured will be in Atlanta, since that’s my base. I’m open to events country and world-wide though!)

What better time to emerge from my hiatus than with this new joint from blctxt and producer King I Divine? In the midst of a turbulent sociopolitical time, “The Roots” is a thoughtful narrative reflecting this nation’s unjust timeline. “I’m a mortal man that wishes he had answers/I’ma have some kids I hope that they stand up/to the man with the gun in his hands/whose agenda is to wipe them off earth cuz he can.” Over King I Divine’s hypnotic sounds, blctxt’s insightful lyrics can’t help but resonate with folks that understand this struggle.
This song is from the A3C Vol. 4 compilation mix, which dropped today. The mix is full of dope artists: new ones you need to know and familiar ones you’ve been diggin’ for a minute. You can stream it here and cop it here.
A handsome man with a beard can usually garner a few swoons from women. So it’s only right that Philly native Sean Falyon would pay homage to his well-conditioned beard with this new joint, “In My Beard.” Boasting about ladies mesmerized by his #Beardgang status, Falyon rhymes coolly over a funky, laid back beat. Ill production from Trifeckta with some crooning from Nick Anderson. Listen to the track after the cut. This artwork though…
