After a few weeks of silence from the saturday showcase, it’s back and ready to bring you the best stuff from the past week. In a week that saw quite few good tracks drop and a decent amount of tour announcements, it’s best to just concentrate on the best stuff. Eliminate the noise and let the cream rise to the top.
X.V. Drops “Popular Culture”
Earlier in the week, the Wichita native dropped “AHHHH Real Monsters” with schoolboy Q, and it’s absolutely fire. If nothing else, It at least warrants that you give “Popular Culture” a full listen through.
Azealia Banks – “Liquorice”
I just goddamn love Azealia Banks, and you should too. Watch the video fro “Liquorice” and see if you can resist.
Azealia Banks – “Aquababe”
Bangladesh ft.. Pusha T, Jadakiss, and 2 Chainzz – “100″
The latest word to be commandeered by Bangaldesh is not a word at all, it’s a number. In typical Bangladesh fashion, he gives the beloved number 100 the “A Milli” treatment, and in the process lays down a sinister beat that seems to have been crafted by the gods for the use of Pusha T’s sharp tongue. Prepare thyself.
“Kids These Days” do Conan
For this weeks band you may never have heard of, Chicago natives “Kids These Days” play Conan. The group of youngsters makes some velvety smooth jazz/rock/hiphop fusion and they absolutely crush this performance.
