Nolan the Ninja, “14k”

Nolan the Ninja is back with a fully stocked arsenal of melodic dopeness and boom-bap cuts. First out the chamber is “14k,” a keyboard-driven cut highlighted by Nolan’s consistent brand of spitfire lyrics.

Playground Myu-zik and Kid Smitty,  “After School Cypher Ep. 1”
This is a straight old-school posse cut where everybody brings their lyrical A-game.

Sam Austins, “Hater Blocker”

“Hate Blocker” is a Detroit trap head-nodder produced K. Reed.

Illa J, “Home”
Ill J channels his inner Curtis Mayfield on this soulful melodic cut produced by Calvin Valentine. The video was directed by Die Ottos and features very positive and heartwarming Detroit images.

Neff 600,  “Catch A Wave”
Neff 600 comes through with a straight club-banger. (What’s up with them red pants though?) The video was directed by ThrillaHD.
