Hands up on this one, this is the first we’ve heard of TruthCity, but we’re glad we’ve caught sight him when we did. There’s kind of a J.Cole steez about ‘Something Waiting‘ and it seems like Kanye’s ‘haa!’ grunts have kind of weaved there way in here too. That’s not to take away from what it essentially a very solid track though. You can follow Mr Truth City on Twitter here: Twitter.com/MrTruthCity.
This was a hidden gem within our inbox this week. Something a little different with some unusual up-tempo production which isn’t going down a whole lot lately in hip-hop. The song is ‘Check’ and it comes from B.Nyce featuring Charlie Funk, off Nyce’s upcoming Pilot’s Cabin EP. Go follow them on Twitter: B.

Here’s a little taste of those classic daisy days. You’ll hear the comparisons without me having to list them here, but I still feel it. This jazzy duo, Kameron “Kazmeaux” Taylor and Aaron “MikeRare” Wade are collectively known as TeamLift and release their debut EP ‘TL EP’ on Feb 1st. Love to Lavi$h (dollar signs, replacing a S… are we still doing that Mr Producer?!)… and Barren Claude (Mr rapper). You can follow them on Facebook here.
