Vast Aire And Cosmiq Give Fans A Taste Of The New LP

It takes a great deal of confidence to walk into the fold of a group like Canibal Ox, whose LP The Cold Vein stands as one of the most widely heralded pieces of New York City underground Hip-Hop. That wasn’t at all a problem for producer Cosmiq—formally known as Bill Cosmiq.

“I linked up with Vast Aire years ago through a mutual friend, Taj Hotep,” he told AAHH back in 2015. “The first track we released was Royal Purple Bag off of Vast’s A Space Iliad EP. After that, Can Ox and I continued to connect and work on some records.”

They then released the full-length effort Blade Of The Ronin—produced entirely by Cosmiq. “I let things come naturally, and the compositions started developing an intense cinematic edge,”’he said of LP’s tone.

Now—two years later—Vast Aire and Cosmiq are collaborating on a new LP, Aireplane, which will pair the two as a duo (à la Guru and Premier). As his team explained to AAHH, the project “balances cerebral concepts with witty and entertaining wordplay.”

The album is coming soon on the IGC Records imprint; in the meantime—to tide fans over—they’ve dropped the first single from the project, “Dark Metropolis,” a piano-driven heater, sprinkled that signature sound that Can Ox fans have come to hold so dear.

Check out the new track, below, and keep an eye out for the new LP—right here on AAHH.

BK Rapper Corey St. Rose Drops A Visual For His Latest Single “Get Back”

With a steady rising buzz in the rap game, Brooklyn’s own Corey St. Rose continues to build momentum in New York City. The latter of Corey’s 2017, he gave his fans Vibes; a project that set the tone for what’s to come from the charismatic rapper. Now, to start off his 2018, Corey makes his return with a new single and video for “Get It Back,” produced by Tyeon Thompson.

BK Rapper Corey St. Rose Drops A Visual For His Latest Single "Get Back"

Borrowing elements from some of his borough’s most iconic names, like Big Daddy Kane, the late Notorious B.I.G., and Marcy’s own Jay-Z, Corey’s swaggering persona and (Brooklyn) bravado is on full display in the video directed by Dpoftheyear. We see both sides of Corey as a rapper and showman. He walks the streets of Chinatown in New York City with two ski masked vixens by his side.

As always, Corey’s delivery is witty and boastful. “I just copped a Cuban for the trigger finger/Might cop another one for the middle finger,” he raps. Corey has big plans for 2018, make sure you’re on the lookout!

You Should Be Excited About Rich the Kid’s Debut Album

Whatever title Rich settles on, you can rest assured that this album is going to be good

Atlanta via New York City rapper and Rich Forever Music founder Rich the Kid is set to drop his solo debut full-length in 2018.

After years of mixtapes and collaborations with artists such as Migos, Young Thug, and 21 Savage, Rich invested in himself and founded his label, Rich Forever Music, in the early spring of 2016. The first artists to hop on board were Chicago rapper Famous Dex and producer The Lab Cook, with whom Rich collaborated on the label’s first two tapes, Rich Forever Music and Rich Forever 2. In the fall of 2016, fellow New York City spitter Jay Critch signed to Rich Forever and, less than a year later, appeared with Rich and Dex on Rich Forever 3 – one of the best mixtapes of 2017, in my opinion.

Concerning his solo work, Rich signed to Interscope Records last summer and got to work on his full-length debut. The hype only grew in September when Rich dropped one hell of a single, “New Freezer,” with Kendrick Lamar. The landmark track rides an icy trap beat and showcases Rich’s talent as a hook-writer. Oh, and Kendrick snaps. Hard.

Only a few days into the new year, Rich announced via Twitter that Rich Forever 4 is on the way, featuring the same trio as its predecessor. On January 7, he posted an Instagram video of himself rapping along to an unreleased track with the caption “Finished my album last night now what should I call it?”

Whatever title Rich settles on, you can rest assured that this album is going to be good.

One year after Migos “changed the culture” with their sophomore album, they plan to do it once more. Migos announced Culture II via Instagram on Monday night, with a release date of January 26, almost one year after Culture (now certified platinum), took the world by storm, moving 131,000 copies in its first week. The announcement comes after a late 2017 interview with Montreality, where Quavo was vocal about the group’s new sound.

“We’re creating a whole new sound [with this album.] Hip-Hop has changed in a big way, so you could mark this down as we changing.” –Quavo (to Montreality)

The album is led by the Pharrell-produced single “Stir Fry,” and the Cardi-B assisted “Motorsport” — both of which are tearing up the Billboard Hot 100. While little is known about the project, Quavo promises top quality production. “CULTURE II WAIT TILL U C WHO EXECUTIVE PRODUCED IT” the rapper tweeted back in October. Check out the announcement below, and pray the trio release the tracklist soon.

Lil Pump’s Team Finesses Their Way Out Of WB Deal

With a successful debut album under his belt and a “xan-free” 2018 ahead, Lil Pump is now entering the new year as an independent artist. According to Billboard, The “Designer” rapper recently terminated his contract with Warner Bros., stating he was only 16 when he signed.

Famed entertainment attorney John Branca wrote a letter to the label on Pump’s behalf, reaffirming the age issue, and further arguing the contract was “never certified by the court,” Billboard states. Warner Bros. Larry Mattera, the labels VP of commerce and marketing, said:

“We, as a company and as a label, needed to build and establish more of a presence in the urban space. They (clearly) had insights and relationships on the urban side of the business in the network landscape.”

The “Gucci Gang” rapper is well positioned as an independent artist and is rumored to be fielding offers anywhere from $8 to $12 million, according to Complex. The young Soundcloud breakout is already a high-paid sensation. In December, TMZ reported that Pump received a $345,000 advance on his debut album, in addition to 15% royalties. The album moved 46,000 copies its opening week, and its lead single “Gucci Gang” is still moving. Former Warner Bros. CEO Cameron Stang Praised the rappers business savvy, telling Billboard: “They’re innovative spirits, and they don’t take no for an answer. Pump is an incredible artist; he’s got fantastic charisma and a huge personality, with lots of talent and no fear.”

Lil Pump isn’t the only one making serious moves in 2018. Fellow Soundcloud rapper and childhood friend Smokepurpp recently signed to Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records and is finishing up a highly-anticipated collab album with Murda Beatz. Pump recently released his latest track “Trap Jumpin” featuring Juicy J, which you can find below.
