Denzel Curry x slowthai – “Zatoichi”

Denzel Curry and slowthai join forces for the cut “Zatoichi,” which is set to appear on Curry’s upcoming album Melt My Eyez See Your Future. The track takes inspiration from 1960’s Japanese samurai movie character of the same name and Quentin Tarantino‘s Kill Bill Vol. 2, and arrives with a music video helmed by Adrian Villagomez. “I like traditional hip hop, I like drum and bass, I like trap, I like poetry, so a lot of that is going to be interwoven in this album including jazz and a lot of genres that I came up on as a kid and just being in my parents’ house,” Curry said of the album. “This album is made up of everything that I couldn’t give you on TA13OO or Imperial because I was going through depression anger issues.”

Bakar - Nobody’s Home

Bakar’s awaited debut studio album Nobody’s Home is officially out. The 14-track record is produced by long-time collaborator Zach Nahome with contributions from SebastiAn and Matthew Tavares, plus guest appearances from Celsete and Maverick Sabre. “So much magic is happening at one moment it can be overwhelming. In those moments I feel invincible. Like I can get off anything, I can make anything and I’m gonna get off my ideas. It’s a really enjoyable place to be. Once you get into that zone,” recalled Bakar. “I had moved to Hampstead, a nicer area. I had gone from the bottom of the hill in Camden, Chalk Farm, to being at the top of the hill. That’s a crazy thing to do from where I’m from. I guess the whole concept is me saying to a girl, ‘I think I’ve found the spot. There’s a whole new world up here, the top of the hill it looks different. Come see it.’”

Kehlani – “little story”

With her new album blue water road set to drop soon, Kehlani delivers the brand new single “little story.” Executive produced by Pop Wansel of production duo Pop & Oak and produced by Some Randoms and Wes Singerman, the track follows September 2021’s “altar.”

Baby Keem – “16”

Bay Keem is revisiting The Melodic Blue with an accompanying music video for “16.” Helmed by Jonas Lindstroem, the visual is billed as “a pictorial anecdote, which lays bare Keem’s feeble and kaleidoscopic love life.” The video arrives shortly after the pgLang artist appeared on Ye’s DONDA 2 and just before he hits the road for a 28-date North American tour.

Toro y Moi – “The Loop”
