Jeremih x Don’t Tell Em Afro-Remix

This isn’t as good as it could be but its official. Let that sink in for a sec…. One of our fave R and B artists (when he isnt being shoved into edm festival type stuff) got 3 of Africa’s finest to be on a comissioned remix.

R Kelly x Tear It Up (Feat. Future)

A lot better than there last collab, this is where both of them highlight their own unique styles. Future will that double time flow and R Kelly being well one of the greatest of all time.

Jeremih & Skinny Fabulous x Work It

A collaboration that we would have dreamed of but never thought would happen. One of our favourite R and B stars teams up with Skinny Fabulous for a collab that works oh so well. The riddim suits both of them so well, Jeremih in his laid back r and b guise and Skinny Fabulous and his 100 mile per hour delivery. Also need to point out how good the riddim is, simple but infectious.

Tink X Fingers Up

Whilst a lot of the new female rappers beef with each other, we suddenly hear this new banger from Tink. Who is Tink? She is a 17 year old rapper from Chicago who just released her latest mixtape Blunts and Ballads. Fingers up highlights her various styles, singing, double time and one hell of a chorus.

Big Sean x Guap

Key Wane and Young Chop made one of my favourite instrumentals of the year. Also your sister’s favourite rapper after ” Chainz begins his tenure as a A-level Hip Hop star.

Jeremih x Go To the Mo

Last summer before we took a short holiday to Spain and asked a bunch of people for albums to listen to. We got recommended Jeremih’s first lp by Rob Pursey. To be honest i wasn’t expecting much, his singles were ok but nothing great. What i heard was something that was a lot more promising. He really showed that he wasn’t your average hook guy. Since then he has gone on to be the guy to go to for hooks. Meek Mill used him for Amen (one of our contenders of song of the summer), DJ Drama’s My Moment (aka I’m On One part 2, nothing wrong with that) and Travis Porter Ride Like That.

As well as being the common denominator between all those hits he has been releasing a slew of mixtape cuts (for the upcoming Late Nights tape). The highlight being this ATCQ sampling Keep It Movin’. The song features his writing partner Marcus French and is a 2012 take on a boom bap classic. He also hopped on King Louie’s new banger Val Venis as well as the lead single Go to the Mo. There is an incredibly NSFW video but we aren’t posting that.
