Another great track from Mi Vida Local, as Atmosphere deliver a simple yet effective video for Delicate. If you’re not aware, Atmosphere are hitting London as part of their European tour, so you can catch them at The Electric Ballroom on 23 April. Also check out my in-depth interview with Slug over at Grown Up Rap if you haven’t done so already.

Speaking of Aesop Rock, he also blessed with a new project today, alongside producer and psych rock front man, TOBACCO. The duo, known collectively as Malibu Ken, seem to have found just the right creative balance when their respective talents are combined, with TOBACCO’s electronic 8-bit heavy beats verging just onto the right side of dark and angsty, providing the perfect backdrop for Aesop’s usual brand of studious lyricism. The whole album is a welcome addition to the ever-expanding Rhymesayers catalogue and you can hear the whole thing for yourself below. Physicals and merch are available over at Fifth Element.

Another video from Aesop Rock’s forthcoming album, alongside Pittsburgh producer, TOBACCO. The duo – aka Malibu Ken – are dropping their album mid-January, which will hopefully kick off yet another stunning year for rap. Pre-orders for Malibu Ken are available now via Rhymesayers.

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.
