Austrian hip-hop producer Flip just released his album "Reflections" on February 17th and it's really good. The album features guest appearances from AG (of DITC), EDO. G, Killah Priest, Guilty Simpson, Kev Brown, LMNO, Tragic Allies and many others with all production (and some of the scratching as well) being handled by Flip himself. I'm not quite sure what my favorite track is just yet, but "Dreaming" with AG is definitely getting a lot of play and has been since the video dropped. Anyways, make sure you peep the album stream below then head on over iTunes and cop the full album if you are feelin' it.

J-Live - I Just Don't (Single)

J-Live comes through with his latest single "I Just Don't", which finds the veteran New York rapper letting us know that he just "doesn't give a fuck" over a hypnotic self-produced instrumental. The beat is dope, but its the rhymes and delivery from J-Live that really stand out to me about this song. Anyways, this cut is the second release from J-Live's upcoming album "His Own Self", which is set to drop on March 17, 2015 and is currently available for preorder over on his Bandcamp site.
