Day late, but to make up for it I broken my rules and added on an extra two days of releases. It was worth it too.

A lot of people have been waiting for something new from the Left Coast’s Pac Div, and they finally got it this morning with Church League Champions. If you’re unfamiliar with Pac Div, the trio aren’t a far cry from the G-Funk era that brought the West fame over 15 years ago, but have a sound like a fusion of Pharcyde and The Cool Kids with a more hard edge delivery. Although there is artists on in the West like Nipsey Hussle who are bringing the gangster rap back, Pac Div is doing their own thing and doing it well.

What’s Good?: “Mayor,” “Young Black Male,” “We The Champs (Duke vs. Carolina)”

ATL artist Donnis is back with the final edition of his Snack Pack series, a little goodie bag of two tracks to keep you interested. His other two packs of stacks have held this blogger off and this one’s done just the same. Especially since Donnis dropped a nice video off for one of the tracks, “Clermount Lounge.” Donnis is a versatile artist able to rap over a much inspired Atlanta beat or sample frenzy like he has on “Go Home.” If you like this, then wait for Donnis’ upcoming full project with 10Deep.

What’s Good?: Both tracks, Clermount Lounge” and “Heartbeat (Don’t Stop)”

Mmm, the remix masters are back, this time with all original beats and verses. Cookin’ Soul teamed up with NahRight to bring this 12 track monster. There’s verses from Joell Ortiz, Mickey Factz, Crooked I, Skyzoo, Donny Goines, Stat Quo, AC and Rapper Big Pooh that showcase the beatmakers dexterity for accomadating so many different style of rapper. Needless to say, the production is on point on this one. Don’t sleep.

What’s Good?: “Food For Thought” Feat. Joell Ortiz, “Flyin’ Baloons” Feat. Mickey Factz, “On Fire” Feat. Skyzoo, Sha Stimuli and Donny Goines
