Earlier today, Miguel released his dope video for “Adorn” from the recently released 3-track EP. For those who haven’t copped the project yet, here is yet another preview courtesy of Mr. Art Dealer Chic. “Use Me” is just as spaced out as anything we’ve heard and should definitely convince fans to support the movement.
His upcoming Kaleidoscope Dream: The Air Preview EP drops September 11.
After watching a few videos of Action Bronson getting down in the kitchen in the past, it seems like whenever we see a Bronsilini + food video, we’re clicking on it to see what he whips up. Today’s lunch consists of zucchini, tomatoes and cheese, which looked amazing after it was all said and done. The prep work consisted of 5 joints rolled to smoke.
Maybe he should sign up for Master Chef one of these years.

Album: Luv NY
Label: Ascetic/Red Apples
Here’s a track from Luv NY’s self-titled album featuring Kool Keith & Roc Marciano entitled “Pressure Up”. Luv NY is a super-group that features hip-hop legends such as Roc Marciano, DITC’s AG and OC, Kool Keith, Kurious, Dave Dar with production by Ray West. Their debut album came out a few weeks ago, but we finally got around to listening to it this week and it’s become one of our favorite projects of the year. If you’re a fan of underground hip-hop, I would highly suggest you not to miss out on this album.

He keeps things respectful and even hopeful, as he ends the song looking towards the future and marriage. Maybe Nas would approve of ‘ol boy dating Destiny.
Let us know what you think of the young God’s record.
