Incase y’all forgot, it’s Yeezy season. Kanye has been making waves with these cuts from his forthcoming project — which coincidentally is now titled ‘WAVES’ instead of ‘SWISH’. The rapper turned fashion designer has been blowing up on Twitter after he went on a rant about Wiz Khalifa, but he made sure to assure his fans that his focus is still on finalizing ‘WAVES’.

This is the first taste we’re getting of the new Kanye, and it’s worlds better than what we were expecting. The production is much more ear-pleasing than the experimental blasphemous monstrosity that he released in 2013, and the lyricism is much more in-tune with the contemplative ‘Ye that we grew to love over the last decade. The feature from label affiliate Ty Dolla $ign is fitting; his R&B vocals are scattered throughout the track, but his voice and delivery is an essential relief from the intriguing, but otherwise repetitive beat.

Whether you like it or not, Kanye is going to make millions off of this album. Kanye is going to make millions no matter what he touches, because he’s Kanye. He might dub himself a genius, and you might disagree, but the fact is that he’s an icon — if he can get Yeezus to top charts, this more palatable style will definitely go Platinum. I shouldn’t have to tell you to follow Kanye on Twitter and Soundcloud, but if you care at all about pop culture you should do it.

Airplane Mode – Ty Dolla $ign (Mixtape)

Free Download | Airplane Mode - Ty Dolla $ign (Mixtape)

Dolla — Dolla Signnnnn! A month before his forthcoming album, he decided to release this B-Sides project ‘Airplane Mode’ for free. I’m not gonna lie, the majority of the tape is slow, R&B, bedroom bangers; it isn’t the best sound for Ty Dolla $ign, but a few of them might make it onto your seduction playlist. I’ll get right to the it: best tracks on the project are Back In The City, Rich Ni$$a feat. YG, and Violent. Production styles and BPM varies from track to track, but for the most part you’re looking at piano-centered hip-hop instrumentals from Ty$ himself, DJ Mustard, Mike Will Made It, Sonny Digital, and Nate 3D. Although the topics stay within the general shallow categories of stacking money, sleeping with women, and smoking lots of weed, there’s an underlying message about Ty$’s struggle with fame and how he has to cope with fake friends and clingy girls. ‘Airplane Mode’ truly establishes a perspective for fans to empathize with prior to the release of his debut studio album, which was a smart business move by the young musician. If you weren’t already hyped for Free TC, you will be after you listen to this project. Follow Ty on Twitter and Soundcloud if you’re feeling it.

Post Up – Wiz Khalifa & Ty Dolla $ign

Download Post Up - Wiz Khalifa & Ty Dolla $ign

It’s no secret that Ty Dolla $ign has become Taylor Gang’s ace in the hole since he started representing the label in 2013, and that truth remains unaltered with this hit release alongside Wiz Khalifa. The two together really vibe off each others energies, I think Ty$ pushes Wiz to really put his heart into the release and he actually spits one of the hardest verse we’ve heard from him in awhile. Not only that but he produced this sick beat for the two of them, which isn’t terribly complicated but the pulsating synth over the kicks and claps take control as the vibrations run through your body. Anyway you look at it Wiz hit the jack pot when he signed this man, and this song is a testament to that. Hit the play button, cop the free download, and make sure to check out Wiz’s TAYLOR GANG OR DIE compilation on soundcloud.

Refresh/Say No More – Wiz Khalifa & Ty Dolla $ign

Free Download | Refresh/Say No More - Wiz Khalifa & Ty Dolla $ign

Wiz is keeping the free music coming, and after earning just shy of 1.5 million plays on his last release from 2014, it’s no surprise that he wanted to wait until the New Year to drop this elite 9 minute smoking anthem. He released Refresh/Say No More featuring Ty Dolla $ign from his vault this afternoon, which is actually two songs put together, similar to the style that Drake’s label has coined. The slow tempo, mellow strings, and ambient keyboard progression create a relaxed environment for Wiz to spit his weed kindred lyrics. 1/3 of the way through, the song breaks into an even calmer setting where Ty Dolla $ign sings a faint hook, leading into a more sensual verse from the Taylor Gang leader. No word on if Wiz is working on his next album, but seeing as he dropped 2 projects in 2014 – 28 Grams and Blacc Hollywood – I imagine he just wants to keep the good vibes rolling.

28 Grams – Wiz Khalifa (Mixtape)

Free Download 28 Grams - Wiz Khalifa (Mixtape)

If you’ve ever taken a culinary class, or dealt/bought drugs, you should know there’s 28 grams in an ounce. After a short delay from Wiz’s arrest last weekend, he decided to drop his 28-track project right after he got out of jail (he got out in under 2 hours and was only charged with POM). If you remember his last album ONIFC than you probably remember how disappointing it was, some people went as far to say he fell off, but the haters are nowhere to be found this morning. No more ambient/artistic beats, just some hard hitting boom bap production from ID Labs, 808 Mafia, Sonny Digital, and a bunch of other big names. His flows are a hundred times better too, you can tell he’s in his comfort zone; his delivery is stronger, his lyricism is less constrained, and despite the somewhat excessive use of auto-tune he sounds real. This tape is packed with trap songs, stripper anthems, and enough stoner tracks for you to box your entire house to. If I had to pick 5, I’d say Aw Shit, Incense, Up Down feat. Berner, Banger feat. Ty Dolla $ign, and The Last. Burn a couple spliffs for Memorial Day and get fill your phone with some Trap Wiz.

If your bed’s not rocking to this tonight you need to change something in your life. The Weeknd drops a filthy verse over Ty and Wiz’s single Or Nah, a track that was already pretty heated. Abel’s just killing these remixes, go listen to his version of Drunk In Love if you haven’t already. Enjoy.
