Taylor Gang’s newest signee Quay Meanz takes a sample from Ellie Goulding’s popular song “Lights” and flips it to his advantage, while adding a deep bass line that accentuates the vocal sample in the background. Meanz is already signed to one of the biggest artists in the game right now, Wiz Khalifa/TGOD, and as long as he continues to impress and we see nothing but a bright future for the young Pittsburgh artist.
Sit back, roll one up and reflect on your long day with Quay. TGOD 2013 shit.

Over at the OnSMASH we always are looking for that new fresh sound and Will Brennan definitely has “it.” Will recently signed to Dim Mak Records, which is owned by Steve Aoki, so we’re not the only people who recognize the talent that Will brings to the table. 2013 has started off with a bang for him, and we’re certain the rest of this year will continue down the same path of success.
Sit back, roll something up, then press play and let the production from DJ Burn One dictate that head nod.
It’s been a while since we’ve got some new music from Flatbush Zombies, but ever since they dropped D.R.U.G.S., the internet has been buzzing about the new trio out of BK.
Their sound can not be compared to anyone in the game today. With clever lines of heavy drug use, the Glorious Dead will always keep you entertained. With that being said, “MRAZ” showcases all of their lyrical abilities over a smooth beat that contains some samples you’ll probably recognize and are familiar with.
Fresh off his signing to Dim Mak Will Brennan drops More Perfect Union, which he presents for his fans, to celebrate the re-release of “Prodigal Son” on Dim Mak Records. The project revamps and reintroduces some of Brennan’s older material over some classic productions from Pretty Lights, Zeds Dead, Heroes x Villains, and many more.
