IYDKNYKThursday: 10.26.17

IYDKNYKThursday, an abbreviation for If You Don’t Know Now You Know Thursday, is going to be a weekly piece consisting of five songs I’ve handpicked from SoundCloud that have been in my constant rotation for that week. You can follow my Soundcoud here: https://soundcloud.com/ralphpolojames

These are what tracks I’ve been bumping aside from Future and Thugger’s “Super Slimey” project.

In this week’s #TBT: This throwback Weeknd track allowed Abel to exhibit his raw talent before he blew up. One of the most slept on songs in his discography in my opinion. Mans kills the ‘Yoncé beat.

Ski Mask the Slump God is one of the most powerful, gravitating forces in underground hip-hop right now. His flow is unfathomable with a starch voice that’s impossible to not recognize after a few listens. Not to mention Offset murders this feature.

UnotheActivist is one of my personal favorite rappers at the moment. His sound is unmistakable, with clearly strong influences from rappers like Future & Young Thug.

Smokepurpp aka Lil Purp has been gaining a lot of attention alongside his good friend Lil Pump with their sporadic flows. 16yrold is one of the best up and coming producers in the soundcloud game. Both of these very young guys are people to look after for the rest of 2017.

It’s very easy to overlook Migos mixtapes after their blossom of success they’ve accumluated since Culture dropped, but these are the Migos tracks we should be most thankful for. Takeoff, Offset, and Quavo absolutely annihilate 4:33 of beat time on this soundcloud gem.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
