Kelly Rowland – “Kelly”

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland is back with her first solo single in over five years. The track, “Kelly,” finds Rowland dropping bars, being as boastful as you ever heard her before and rightfully so; she is one of the OG’s in the music business. This is a sound that you never heard her adopt before and it works.

Malibu Ken (Aesop Rock & TOBACCO) – “Acid King”

Rhymesayers

Aesop Rock teams up with Black Moth Super Rainbow’s mysterious leader Tobacco for a full-length collaborative self-titled project coming out in Janurary via Rhymesayers. The duo, which is called Malibu Ken, share their first single “Acid King,” a excellent taste of the combination of Aesop’s agile wordplay and Tobacco’s off kilter production.

“TOBACCO and I have thrown around the idea of doing a project together since we first toured over a decade ago,” says Aesop in a statement. “I find his production to be something special, and always wanted to see what I could bring to it. We recently found time to record some songs, and Malibu Ken was born. I brought a few stories to the table, but also did my best to let the production dictate the subject matter throughout. We hope you like the soup.”
