A day late posting this, and a few days after Hip Hop celebrates it’s unofficial 40th Birthday (without a lot of releases, actually) – I think these two tapes would serve as a good present to the fans. I’ve been looking forward to both projects for a while, but haven’t heard much off them just yet. I’m streaming a few tracks while I type this, but won’t really get a chance to digest them until tomorrow.
First up, Memphis’ own Skewby drops an eight track EP / Mixtape, I’m not sure what he’s calling it but fans are awaiting this as the follow-up to his “More or Less” album in 2011, although he released an EP last year as well titled “Humble Pie.” Stream the project below, or download it on Bandcamp. You can also sign up for Skewby’s email list on his site and get pretty dope emails a few times a year from him, a very personal touch and certainly always humble.
Next, The always-reliable Nickelus F (or Sweet Petey, if he’s still going by that alias?) drops his #PTPT project. Featuring familiar production from both Michael Millions and Ohbliv, plus a few tracks done by the artist himself. He churns out music pretty quickly, already dropping ‘Vices‘ earlier this year and even joking (I guess?) on Twitter today about dropping another tape in the aftermath of Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse getting everyone talking. There is a small wait at Live Mixtapes to download the tape, but it is free. Stream a few tracks below, and check out my other posts on Nickelus F.
