“if you really need some food, plant them seeds in the earth/plant them ideas and add action to give them birth.”

The hustlegrind is so real.  It ain’t easy, but Atlanta MC/producer Jack Preston affirms that “it’s okay.”  The newly released visual for his latest self-produced single from his upcoming album End Of The Future is a narrative dedicated to the working class, the every(wo)man.  Director Will Feagins Jr. of High Impact Multimedia captures the artist’s every day grind, following him through the streets of East Atlanta.  The message is crystal: We have dreams and lofty aspirations but we still got bills to pay.  We gotta eat but destinies must still be manifested.  Hit play on the video and download the track here.

outer limits ep

Singer/songwriter India Shawn’s latest project, Outer Limits, is a collaborative piece with renowned producer/songwriter/singer James Fauntleroy.  Complete with the experimental sounds famously executed by Fauntleroy and his 1500 or Nothin’ crew, Outer Limits plays like a sonic journey through 80s R&B and beyond.  Groovy funk synths, introspective but universal lyrics and danceable melodies display the effortless connection between both songwriters.


huh what

Every once in a while, I’ve gotta go into hibernation.  Just get away from the noise, the saturation, the bad vibes.  A cleansing, of sorts.  I’m not quite over my respite but I had to resurface to share this with y’all.



When Killer Mike enlisted El-P to take over the production on his 2012 album, R.A.P. Music, hip hop was not fully prepared for what that collaboration would come to beget.  Soon, the duo birthed Run the Jewels and really fucked folks’ heads up.  Their self-titled debut was an immediate favorite amongst critics and fans of the rappers.  So, it’s no surprise that their follow-up was highly anticipated.  Behold, Run the Jewels 2.  Originally set to drop on October 27, the early leak had the Internet going wild.  And rightfully so.  This project is quintessential hip hop: raw lyrics, experimental production, and varying concepts.  What I dig most about this album is the range of the topics and unexpected but appropriate collaborations.  Folks like Gangsta Boo, Travis Barker, and Rage Against The Machine’s Zack de la Rocha all show up and show out.  Audio Gumbo’s favorite tracks: Blockbuster Night Part 1, Angel Duster and Love Again (Akinyele Back).


A3C Vol 4



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.



sean falyon - in my beard


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…



I’ve been hip to KING for a couple of years.  If you’re unfamiliar, KING is a trio of super dope, creative ladies who produce and write their own music.  King shit indeed.  It’s been a minute since they’ve dropped some new music but “Mister Chameleon” is well worth the wait, especially if it’s a hint to what’s to come from their upcoming project.  This live version further builds the anticipation for more enchanting sounds from KING.  Singers Anita and Amber blend their harmonies while Paris puts in work on the keys, all while they paint a vivid picture of a lover with a history of an ever-changing, shady demeanor.  The studio version will be available on July 1.  Get your fill here until then.

scoe's special


Ok, I’ll admit, the first thing that drew me to this joint was the cover art.  That plate looks good as hell!  Upon further inspection, this track is good food too.  A bonus track from Damani Nkosi’s upcoming album Thoughtful King, this banger features a revolving door of dope Cali MCs.  ill camille, Thurz, Ohno, S-Mak and Problem all have standout verses, which says a lot on a posse song.  Get into it below.




fatima yellow memories

I’m really excited to share this find with y’all.  Fatima, a Swedish-born, London-based soul singer, just dropped her debut full-length album Yellow Memories and it’s a jewel.  Exceptional production from Oh No, Flako, Floating Points, Scoop Deville and Computer Jay create a well-rounded product of deeply diverse sounds.  From beginning to end, the album captures a spirit of truth and nostalgia.  Absolutely worth the buy.  Favorite track: Ridin Round (Sky High). Stream the album after the cut.


cadillacs in space

This joint is one of the reasons Audio Gumbo is here: to bring a funky alternative to what you’re used to.  Cadillacs In Space is a supergroup of extraterrestrial talent. Robyn the Bank, Aleon Craft and Shy Carter combined their cool ass writing, rapping, singing and producing skills to create an experience that will shake you up and turn you out.  “Autopilot (hollywood & highland)” brings some Southern cool mixed with some Cali heat.  Quick-paced and full of attitude, “Autopilot” is summertime ready.  Check out the song and video after the jump.
