Rapper Big Pooh comes through with this gritty banger spitting knowledge. The backdrop is soulful but it still has that thump to it, bringing that instant head nod. This will be on Fat Boy Fresh Vol. 3: Happy Birthday, so be on the lookout for that.
Two new transmissions from LooseScrewz, both extremely different in sound. Transmission 4 is a bit more helter skelter while Transmission 5 has a smooth aquatic feel to it. To stay up to date on this and other dope happenings on the FarFetched imprint subscribe to the Youtube page.
Pretty pleased that this is the Missy Elliot song sir Roth chose to flow over, even more pleased with the results. I’ve always felt he was severely underrated and this is a prime example of why. The precision with which this track was bodybagged is impressive.
No this isn’t a single to a new project from Legit, but that’s coming in a month. But he decided to drop a sequel to one of his favorite joints of his to hold the listeners over for the now. The vocals in the background set the the mood of the song real nice like. Enjoy.

East Flatbush Brooklyn rapper, MeLo-X, takes to this melodic, introspective track to unleash some biting social commentary. The song samples Elliot Wilson’s show “The Truth” and focuses on urban communities in New York. This will be on his upcoming project God:HiFi
Off of my first listen I could already tell I’m going to keep this track in rotation. Everything about this song screams left field, from the choppy canvas to the off-center flow from Kdot and Q. I mean, Kendrick came on the track spitting in spanish. Perfect example of experimenting with delivery but keeping the music dope. Definitely anticipating Oxymoron.
Another transmission from the homie LooseScrewz. I’m really vibing with this one, it sort of sounds like the theme music to an eccentric amusement park, or at least that’s the image I get in my head. It’s anchored by the accordion sound in the background fluctuating in and out of focus.
Here’s the second installment of Transmissions from LooseScrewz. He’s gonna be posting new tracks every few days on the FarFetched Tumblr. This one is more relaxed than the first transmission, it has an ambient vibe to it.
Let me start of by saying, Lupe killed it. Bodybag, autopsy, funeral arrangements, and all. But I was impressed with the concept and direction the song took overall, I think was executed extremely well. This will be on MMG’s upcoming compilation effort, Self Made Vol. 3
King I Divine and LD Henriquez are back at it with another collaborative project in the works. This soothing track is the first single of the upcoming EP, Tano. If you haven’t already, get acquainted with their previous work.
Always on the lookout for dope music from my fellow Stliens and the FarFetched crew always seems to come through. Apparently we’ll be getting more of these periodic installments from LooseScrewz leading up to the release of his project, Tesla.
Murph came through like a “picker of the fire flower” on this one (Word to Lupe). Besides the honest lyrics, the thing that usual catches my attention about this Chicago artist is his cadence and delivery. It certainly doesn’t hurt to have Dee Lilly crafting gems like this to flow over.
It’s no secret that Chuck Inglish is a production magician, sage of the subwoofer smacking beats and whatnot. Keeping up with that tradition, he dropped the single off his upcoming mixtape, Droptops. Bump this in the whip, or wherever speakers are available. And be on the lookout for his album which drops after the tape, Convertibles.
Always a bright spot for me when I get to shine a light on fellow Stliens crafting gems. Farfetched imprint members, Thelonius Kryptonite and LooseScrewz, collaborate for the first single off their upcoming debut project, with some help from the gifted Michael Franco on guitar. The project is dropping May 23rd on wearefarfetched.net.
I’ve always been fond of Clams Casino’s producing ability, and DOOM’s lyrical skills have always been regarded by me as top-notch. So I’m more than pleased with this collab, it was definitely intriguing to hear DOOM’s flow slowed down on a trippier beat.
Not much to complain about with this track, Ab-Soul ripped in typical Soulo fashion. The beat is hauntingly alluring, his flow is compact and effortless, and the rhyme scheme is ill. This is also my favorite verse by Mac Miller by far.
This puts me in the mindset of Joaquin Phoenix, which is good because that song stays in rotation. The beat is simple but effective but what caught my attention (as often with Lupe) is the lyrical display. I approve, sometimes you just have to take flight for the one time.
First single from Brooklyn rapper, Melo X’s upcoming EP GOD:LoFi. I like the fact that it’s an introspective track over a laidback hazy beat and I like even more that it’s so honest. There is a lot of raw material exposed here, the transparency is refreshing.
Another single from Chuuwee for his upcoming project Wildstyle: Side B. It’s dropping on the 21st and if it has tracks that come anywhere near this (which I’m sure it will) then it’s something to watch out for. This track is not only an easy listen but it’s quite clever.
The West Coast duo Tiron & Ayomari are back at it again. I’m digging this synth heavy easygoing single from their upcoming sophomore album, The Great New Wonderful. The drums also smack. No release date yet but I’ll be on the lookout for the next offering.
Another example of when trap music works out nice. This has sort of an oriental feel to it because of the strings but it still hits hard enough for Action Bronson to spit over it and consequently bodybag the beat. Harry Fraud is dropping a project called Adrift two days from now.
It’s not that often that you get a blend of grimy and chill on one track. This sample managed to do both and the two emcees took advantage. This will be on Quelle Chris‘ project, Niggas Is Men, which drops March 19th.
