Uncommon Nasa - "Written at Night" ft. Billy Woods & Quelle Chris

New TrackstheneedledropComment

Staten Island MC Uncommon Nasa is dropping his first entirely self-produced album next month on Man Bites Dog Records. It's called Written at Night, and the tracklist looks almost like a who's who of current underground hip hop, featuring Open Mike Eagle, Billy Woods, Quelle Chris, and many more. Stream the title/closing track, which features two of those names, up there.

billy woods - "Groundhogs Day"

New TrackstheneedledropComment

billy woods has shared the lead single and video from Known Unknowns, the follow-up to 2015's Today, I Wrote Nothing. That album was woods' most abstract project to date, but with "Groundhogs Day" we seem to be picking up more where his 2013 album, Dour Candy, left off. Blockhead is even back to doing most of the production, and contrary to (un)popular belief, I do not hate him at all.

Known Unknowns drops June 9 via Backwoodz Studioz.

Armand Hammer - "B.E.T."

New TracksadminComment

New York MCs Billy Woods and Elucid are teaming up once again as Armand Hammer. They'll be dropping a new EP soon, and the track "B.E.T." will be one of the tracks featured on it. The title: Furtive Movements, and it's dropping August 5th.

Like usual, Woods' and Elucids' bars are cryptic and dark. These guys continue to take hip hop to come dark, eerie depths--especially with that lone guitar line laced into the beat on this one. Enjoy!
