Mardi is back with a solid slap produced by AzBeats. Thoughtful and catchy, American Way digs into the culture of capitalism and it’s impacts on society’s lower class. The jazzy single touches on some serious concepts, from friendships and race to policing and Big Pharma, but never gets too heavy. Going the conscious route is

YoungShirtMane – YSMBIAGSO

“Daelonz is long gone. Welcome to Shirty season.” Everybody is rebranding for 2018, and the rapper formerly known as Daelonz is now YoungShirtMane (and he ain’t gotta shirt on).

Fountaine – Blue ? (Blue Questions)

Sometimes on Sundays, I just like to listen to instrumentals, and Fountaine’s latest drop makes for a great listen. The Cowboy Beep Bop-inspired Blue ? provides all of the moody goodness that I’ve come to love from the young Scorpio, and even without raps the EP is remarkably clear in it’s message. The 20-track project

Andre Waymond bursts onto the music scene with his standout single, Feelings At The Door, produced by Portland’s own Loner Beatz.

Prince Hyph – Still With The Gang

Prince Hyph did his thing with the new uptempo slap Still With The Gang. Not for the weak of heart, the Turf Noize alum lets it be known that he’s not letting his street roots go anytime soon.  Lot’s of artsy stuff coming out of Portland these days, but Hyph is one of the few still
