Casey Veggies "Swag Worth A Mill" was one of our favorite early tracks of his, and he has since provided us with a follow-up presented by the L.A. Leakers. With his debut album on the way, Casey's delivered an anthem in "The Boy" and the IAMSU! assisted "Backflip", and brings the laidback vibes with "3 AM In Cape Town". The third installment in the "Swag Worth A Mill" series, this track comes with production from Sango (who's recent single was pure flames) where CV reveals he's been in South Africa finishing up his debut album.
Drake unleashed 3 new records over the weekend, as "How Bout Now" recently leaked the Toronto rapper/singer decided to just let loose these records, as he knew they would leak as well. The first of the three new records released is the uptempo "6 God" which features production from Boi-1Da and captures the energy found in tracks like "Started from the Bottom" and "0-100" with a different cadence from Drizzy. Unlike the hardhitting "6 God", Drake mellows it out on the 40 produced "Heat of the Moment", which although is an R&B-esque track from him, it still retains his confident and boisterous persona. Drake's dropped off what's now an album's worth of material loosely over the past year, which has been a rather dry year in hip-hop in general, easily running the game. One can't help but wonder how much more material he's going to release, with an upcoming album Views From the 6 on the way - stream + download his latest below.
