Dej Loaf

Free Download // Dej Loaf – “Try Me” (Nick Catchdubs Jersey Gardens Mix)

I didn’t think Dej Loaf‘s “Try Me” could get any more raw than it already is, but Nick Catchdubs came right in and made a great track even better.  He has quite an ear for that kind of thing, yes?

SZA

Listen // SZA – “Sobriety”

Refusing to be pigeon-holed and labeled as an R&B artist, up-and-coming Top Dawg Entertainment artist, SZA, toes the line between alternative and R&B on her latest track, “Sobriety”.  (What does “alternative” mean today, anyway?  To me, it sounds a lot

That Did It

Listen // Sleigh Bells ft. Tink – “That Did It”
