The highly anticipated collaborative Saab Stories EP between two of NY’s finest, Action Bronson and Harry Fraud, has finally dropped. XXL Freshman Action Bronson is known for working well on full length projects with producers. As long as they supply the dope beats, he brings out the bars. He has worked with The Alchemist, Tommy Mas, Statik Selektah, and Party Supplies. Only producer missing on that list was Harry Fraud. After setting aside some time and finally getting in the studio together, the two were able to bring us this brand new 7-track EP, which is now available for streaming. Check it out below and make sure you support the two by buying the project off iTunes if you enjoyed it.

Last night, fans were given directions on where to meet if they wanted to exclusively stream J. Cole’s new album, Born Sinner, before everyone else. And after a fan ripped the album stream and leaked the full album, it looks like J. Cole decided to just upload the full album and made it legally streamable to everyone. As reported, the album does not have any rap features but does include guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, TLC, James Fauntleroy, Amber Coffman and TLC. Make sure you support Cole by buying his album on June 18th.

The long awaited debut project from G.O.O.D. Music/Hustle Gang’s Travi$ Scott, Owl Pharaoh, is finally here. This project has suffered numerous setbacks due to clearance issues but it looks like all those problems can be put behind us. In the past year, the Houston artist has worked closely with Kanye on the Cruel Summer album, hopped on a couple features, and even snagged himself a spot in the XXL Freshman Class so it was only right that we finally get to hear what he has to offer through a full project. This album holds 13 tracks with features from James Fauntleroy, A$AP Ferg, Toro Y Moi, Theophilus London, and more. Download the tape below. A stream will be put up as soon as one becomes available.

Lee Bannon follows up on his last project with a new 7-track release titled Never/Mind/The/Darkness/Of/It and this is what he had to say:
“Never/mind/the/darkness/of/it…’ is the follow up to ‘Caligula theme music 2.7.5.’ with darker vibes and is a web of noise to get caught in.” – BANNON
The album kind of puts you in a trans as you get lost in his dark, eerie but soothing instrumentals just like his last release, Caligula Theme Music 2.7.5. You can stream the full project below. If you want it for the iTunes archive, you can purchase the project at the link provided below.
Electronic music duo Daft Punk has made their highly anticipated album, Random Access Memories, available for stream in its entirety via iTunes. After debuting the Pharrell assisted single which sent the world into a frenzy, we’re not expecting anything less than perfect for this album. For some reason, the iTunes stream isn’t working for everyone and I’m not entirely sure why but we’ve included a stream from Groove Shark that should be able to work for everyone. Make sure you pre-order the album and buy it when it hits stores.
UPDATE: replaced with another stream because Groove Shark took theirs down.

After catching Steve Aoki’s attention with the release of Prodigal Son last year which ultimately led to Will Brennan getting signed to Dim Mak, they have revamped and remastered the album for an official re-release on iTunes. This also follows the success of his “RNR” single which got remixed by a couple DJs and released as an EP under Dim Mak on iTunes last month. Make sure you support the South Florida artist and our good friend Will Brennan and purchase his new album now. If you’ve never heard of Will Brennan, I’ve also included a link where you can stream the project in its entirety before you buy it. New music coming soon in the very near future.
