Savage G Drops His Impressive Debut Album “Son Of The Storm”

Last time we heard from Savage G he had dropped a killer single with Chicago’s Roosevelt The Titan. He has already slayed the loosie game, and I was looking forward to a full length. His debut project is finally here, and it’s a hell of an introduction to the LA native. Son of the Storm is perfection, as the 22 year old Savage already knows how to … Continue reading Savage G Drops His Impressive Debut Album “Son Of The Storm”

Chicago’s Rodie Has A Classic On His Hands With New Mixtape “Stressin’ Adolescent”

It would be a damn shame if Chicago’s Rodie doesn’t get due respect for his new Stressin’ Adolescent Mixtape. I cannot stress (pun unintended) how essential of a listen this is for true hip-hop heads. The well-rounded and meticulously crafted tape is easily one of my favorites of the year and has the potential to change the very face of Chicago hip-hop. It has all the … Continue reading Chicago’s Rodie Has A Classic On His Hands With New Mixtape “Stressin’ Adolescent”

Joel Q Drops His Best Project Yet In “Daniel: The Angel In Training”

Joel Q has put out a slew of dope visuals this year, all preparing for his highest-profile project yet, Daniel: The Angel In Training.

Daniel is his fullest tape yet, incorporating his honesty, witty bars, … Continue reading Joel Q Drops His Best Project Yet In “Daniel: The Angel In Training”

Chicago’s Fairplay Takes A Refreshing Approach On His Second Compilation Tape “Family and Money 2 (City of Hate)”

Fairplay is a lyrical assassin, using his gritty street tales from the crime-ridden streets of Chicago to capitate listeners. He has a penchant for 90’s hip hop, utilizing the old school mentality with a new school flavor. In the last few months, Fairplay has perfected his skills behind the camera, dropping 2 well-received visuals in anticipation for his highly anticipated full-length Friends, Enemies, Demons & … Continue reading Chicago’s Fairplay Takes A Refreshing Approach On His Second Compilation Tape “Family and Money 2 (City of Hate)”

Loren Doesn’t Disappoint In His Highly Anticipated New Project “Fake Deep”

From the beginning of Loren’s highly anticipated Fake Deep, you’ll feel the change in the MC. The intro titled RIPLogan is a detailed account of why he changed his name and his new state of mind. An important line is: “Had to take to the roots, back to where it started,” – a statement that is the basis of the new project. One constant is Logan’s right … Continue reading Loren Doesn’t Disappoint In His Highly Anticipated New Project “Fake Deep”

Terral T Releases One Of The Finest Mixtapes Of The Year In “Sooner Than Later” (Review)

It always saddens me when a truly dope MC doesn’t get the love, plays, and recognition he/she deserves. I started flowsfordays to shine light on these artists, and give them a proper write up and praise. I’m sure it’s difficult to put in hella work in a song, video, or project and not be applauded for their work. It is something I aim to change … Continue reading Terral T Releases One Of The Finest Mixtapes Of The Year In “Sooner Than Later” (Review)

Today is a monumental day. Reason #1: Chicago’s AceSo has dropped a new EP. #2: He’s rapping over Timbaland Beats. #3: It’s even better than his now 2 year old breakthrough mixtape Sick La Familia.  The Timbo Tape is easily his most ambitious project yet.

C$ – #ProjectWave (New Mixtape + Review)

DOWNLOAD HERE  Chicago’s C$ has always been a lyrical cat. If you’ve been with us for awhile, you might remember our dissection interview with him based off his single Brand New. I was so blown away by the track that I immediately reached out to him. Just a month later he released Dial Tone, another lyrical exercise. His newest tape, #ProjectWave, (dropped just a few … Continue reading C$ – #ProjectWave (New Mixtape + Review)

Max Wonders – Hues to Blame (New Project + Review)

This is an album. Make no mistake. Not a mixtape, not a “playlist.” A full fledged, time consuming, (I’m sure) intricate, complex and magnificent album. Max Wonders out did everything he’s ever put out with Hues To Blame. This isn’t to discredit his previous work (which came out two years ago) but the progression is incredible. He knows his sound now, he knows how he … Continue reading Max Wonders – Hues to Blame (New Project + Review)

Austin Fair – Word of Mouf (New Mixtape)

We are big fans of Austin Fair. Like huge. Massive. So much so that we did an exclusive interview and premiere of his last album TTrouble in Paradise. A week or so ago he did a little social media “experiment,” letting his fans know if one of his tweets got to a certain number of likes he’d drop his EP Word Of Mouf. Well, he … Continue reading Austin Fair – Word of Mouf (New Mixtape)

Xavier & The Thrill – Thrill (New Mixtape)

Eccentric Chicago artist Xavier & The Thrill (Formerly XVRHLDY) has come through with a 14 track blessing of an EP called Thrill. Xavier described the project as: “A psychedelic time trip between early 80s Hollywood nightlife & present day. A tale of Money, Drugs, Sex, Neon Lights & Everlasting Life.” After one run through I’d have to agree on this. Single Green Thumbs and Tears of Legends … Continue reading Xavier & The Thrill – Thrill (New Mixtape)

FXXXXY – Cartel Shawty #ANKCARTEL (New Mixtape + Extensive Review)

FXXXXY is a crawler. That’s the best way to describe his music. About a week ago we wrote on his out of this world track 20 Taliban. I knew EP Cartel Shawty #ANKCARTEL was coming out on the 31st but I never saw it on my SoundCloud feed and sadly I was too lazy to seek it out. I realized, today, that all I had to do … Continue reading FXXXXY – Cartel Shawty #ANKCARTEL (New Mixtape + Extensive Review)

Hodgy Beats – Dukkha (New Mixtape and Review)

There was a point in time that I thought Hodgy Beats was the best rapper on Odd Future, and suddenly, it seemed like he just disappeared.. Well Hodgy is back, and his new mixtape gets to go through the wrath of me! ANIME (4.7/5) The beat for ‘Anime’ is extremely chilled out! I’m talking laying around the house on a Saturday afternoon on Instagram while … Continue reading Hodgy Beats – Dukkha (New Mixtape and Review)

Lo Village – Last Summer (EP) + ‘Lately’ Music Video

Genre’s clash and collide in Lo Village’s newest EP Last Summer. Kwess, Kane and Charles give their all on the extensive 8 track list. You can tell the joining of all 3 emcees was meant to be. They’ve also released an official music video to one of the songs on the album, Lately. Elevator (specifically The 88) definitely did their/his thing on the visuals, and Lo Village … Continue reading Lo Village – Last Summer (EP) + ‘Lately’ Music Video

bzkt. – We Are All Fucked (New Mixtape)

Double drops are much appreciated from artists I’ve always enjoyed which is exactly what we’ve gotten from Washington emcee bzkt. Project We Are All Fucked sounds darker, denser and more aggressive than an Earl Sweatshirt album whom I automatically thought of when pressing play (I’m sure I’m not the only one). The title is fitting, as it sounds hopeless, defenseless and a means to an end. My … Continue reading bzkt. – We Are All Fucked (New Mixtape)

Chrisjaan LeMann – Maniacal (New Mixtape + Review)

Alternative download.  What a discovery! And it was hand delivered into my inbox. I am very confident in saying Chrisjaan LeMann’s new project Maniacal is very similar to Illmatic mixed with a little Kush & OJ. Before my readers freak out and call this comparison blasphemous, listen to the album. Similar, not the same. All comparisons aside, this is an excellent work with inspirations from … Continue reading Chrisjaan LeMann – Maniacal (New Mixtape + Review)

Ye Ali – TrapHouse Jodeci (New Mixtape)

Ye Ali has FINALLY dropped off his highly anticipated new project TrapHouse Jodeci. There is excellent combination of reggae, hip hop and r&b on this one. The production is incredible. What To Do is a complete standout, featuring K Camp. Camp has been pretty quiet in recent months, but he proves he hasn’t lost his ability to rap and give off a fire verse. Producers … Continue reading Ye Ali – TrapHouse Jodeci (New Mixtape)

Timaal Bradford – Everyone’s Doing It (New Mixtape)

Timaal Bradford has quiet a future ahead of him. The Mississippi native raps like’s got something to prove, especially on his new EP Everyone’s Doing It. With time, patience, and grind, I don’t think he’ll have any trouble convincing rap fans that he’s a full blow star in the making. He’s got flows for days (first time I’ve used the blogs name!) and it’s evident … Continue reading Timaal Bradford – Everyone’s Doing It (New Mixtape)
