Light Years is NYC-raised and San Francisco-based emcee/producer UnLearn The World's latest project, arguably his best work yet. On this album UnLearn The Wolrd speaks about his personal history, and on topics like the rap game, society, love, fatherhood, religion, and more. If you have never listened to Unlearn The Word before, now it's time to get up to speed. His lyrics are worth listening to, and his flow and delivery are dope, different enough from most others to give his vocals a ... read more

Seattle-based producer L’Orange and North Carolina rapper Solemn Brigham reunite as Marlowe for a second Marlowe album, straightforwardly titled Marlowe 2. The first Marlowe album was one of the best (and most underappreciated) albums of 2018, Marlowe 2 is just as good, if not better.

L’Orange's trademark psychedelic, dusty, lo-fi, boom-bap instrumentals laced with obscure samples are as strong as ever, and Solemn Brigham has something distinctive that sets him apart from other ... read more

GAWDS ( Going At Whoever Don't Surrender) is a crew forged in 2016 by Regulus and Pinpoint, two Baltimore-based emcees, and renowned DJ Rocky Styles.

GAWDS knows how to do it - The Other Side offers up 18 ... read more

The Baltimore Housing Project, the sophomore full-length LP from Baltimore emcee Jay Royale, is a surprisingly good album for such a low-key release. It's clear where Jay Baltimore's inspiration comes from - this album wears influences by classics like Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and Nas' It Was Written thin on its sleeve.

While Jay Baltimore is no Raekwon or Nas, he is a competent enough emcee, and The Baltimore Housing Project is a more than decent 90s-centric street rap album with ... read more

A surprise release from Felt! 18 years after the short but sweet A Tribute to Christina Ricci and 11 years after the last Felt album Felt 3: A Tribute to Rosie Perez, Slug and Murs are back with Felt 4 U, this time around with production from Slug's Atmosphere partner Ant. Ant's production for Felt 4 U is absolutely incredible, it's among the best work best he has ever done.

"Hologram" with The Grouch and Aesop Rock is an obvious highlight, but there are few if any weak spots on this ... read more

Loving your account thus far. I like the amount of detailed reviews, especially considering how many ratings you have. Good job giving exposure to the more underground scene
