New cut from Hurt Everybody over a syrupy track from Khalfani (Impolite Society). It won’t take you 100 Ultra Balls to catch this one; peep it below.
Boldly go with Chandler London on Ritchie: A Space Odyssey- the introduction to his “rap space-opera.”
As if by transporter, the EP appeared seemingly from out of nowhere and was instantly gobbled up by hungry fans and praised by critics at Chicago Reader, Fake Shore Drive, and Gowhere Hip Hop, among others.
London has a knack for creating imagery more vivid than a Holodeck session; on Ritchie… he does so over instrumentals from Kid Cudi’s Satellite Flight album, which just dropped a few weeks ago.

Young Heavy Souls present their first official compilation album; 20 all-new tracks from a growing roster of skillful artists and producers. Get to know YHS:
These producers have captured their niche through unexplored sub-genres of hip-hop and electronic music. With their progressive sound, this body of work exemplifies what these artists value most – collaboration. Young Heavy Souls was established in 2011. Creative director, Matt Black cultivated a team of like-minded musicians, filmmakers, photographers, and graphic designers throughout the past three years.
“With this project we wanted to showcase our growth as a team as well as spread our music to new audiences. Young Heavy Souls is a family, and this project represents the spirit and sound of our crew,” explained Black.
The majority of the team consists of artists local to the Midwest, but they join forces with musical talents from all over the United States. All artists featured on the current roster have made themselves a valuable asset to this creation. Several guest contributing artists are featured, including Spankalicious, Eddie Logix, and Heavy Color. – Young Heavy Souls
