Another strong video from one of the highlights of the rap year, as Evidence drops a new visual for Rain Drops. The track is produced by Twiz the Beat Pro and the video was made by Evidence and Johannes Roth. Weather or Not is out now on Rhymesayers.

Yesterday it was announced that Rhymesayers representative and alt-rap vanguard, Aesop Rock, would be teaming up with analogue synth wizard, TOBACCO, to form Malibu Ken. The duo have an album en route, scheduled for early 2019 release and Acid King is the first single from the project. Malibu Ken is due out on 18 January and pre-orders are available now.

It’s not like DOOM to be conventional, so that’s why it comes as no surprise that we are just being blessed with a video for his 2004 track, One Beer. The animation comes courtesy of Philly-based artist, Distortedd. MM.. Food is out now on Rhymesayers.

Another day, another visual gem from the most recent Atmosphere album. Graffiti sees the Minneapolis duo teaming up once again with director, Jason Goldwatch, who once again provides another sublime backdrop for Ant’s triumphant production. The album, Mi Vida Local, is out now on Rhymesayers.

Rhymesayers representative, Brother Ali, recently offered up a brand new single – Sensitive. The track focuses on the angst that a lot of artists deal with and Ali says he wrote the track at a time when he had taken too long to release new music, had medical trouble with his voice and felt like he had also alienated fans with his political statements. Sensitive is self-produced and the video was made by Dave Wilson. The track is available to stream and download on all the usual platforms.

Another strong release from the Rhymesayers roster as Sa-Roc drops her latest video, Goddess Gang. The track is billed as the “ultimate squad anthem of 2018” and comes with a message that I for one am fully behind, whereby both the industry and listeners alike, need to start judging women by their skills on the mic, as opposed to their looks. The track is produced by Sa-Roc’s regular collaborator, Sol Messiah.

Atmosphere continue to build the hype for their forthcoming album, Mi Vida Local, which is due for release tomorrow. The video for Jerome was made by Evidence and Stephen Vanasco. Mi Vida Local is available to pre-order now via Rhymesayers.

Last week Rhymesayers announced that we would see the arrival of a new album from Atmosphere before the year is done. They also gifted us a new video from the project. Virgo is an important aspect of Atmosphere’s career, as both Ant and Slug fall under that sign, with numerous Virgo references peppering their back catalogue – “The player met a virgin made a Virgo named him Sean” etc. The album, Mi Vida Local, is scheduled for release on 5 October. The video was made by Jason Goldwatch.

This new song from Atmosphere surfaced a couple of weeks ago, amid rumours of a new album beckoning as well. Make It All Better Again is classic Atmosphere, with Slug recounting tales of woe fused with more than a glimmer of hope. You can stream/download the track from all the usual spots. Expect to hear more news on the album coming very soon.
