This week was absolutely turgid with good tunes. Besides pumping new vids, sick mixtapes and one or two trill albums, we took some time to speak to emergent talents RATKING and Louis Futon, both burgeoning big hitters in their respective rap and DJ games. We also came across a secret-not-so-secret Baro side project and feature a tune from another fresh face from his squad. You know that sounds appealing so quit reading words like some kind of sucker and start listening for real.
