Chiefer’s Choice is a new weekly post series we launched last week that will drop every
Monday. The Chiefer writing team will individually pick their favorite releases of the the previous week and highlight those posts here. Some will overlap and some will be completely different, but Chiefer Choice will reiterate what each of our writers are listening to and feel was the most important from the last 7 days. Take a look after the jump and see volume 2 of Chiefers Choice.
For this weeks Chiefer’s Choice I went ahead and chose a review from Daily Chiefer’s writer Seth on Isaiah Rashad’s recently released Cilvia Demo album. His review provides a great look into the TDE artists project which is a must to check out if you haven’t heard it yet. For my 2nd choice I went with Rick Ross’ Mastermind single “War Ready” featuring Jeezy which is the first collaboration we’ve heard from the two artists since they have had their issues in the recent past. Last but not least I went ahead and put IAMSU!’s single, “Yesterday” onto my list which will be on his upcoming album Sincerely Yours due out in April.
Stones Throw Records remains at the forefront of the West Coast independent label environ, and Queens emcee Homeboy Sandman has been among their most productive output agents since signing a few years ago. Boy Sand’s lyrical dexterity has taken him from the borough to Europe a few times, and along those travels his has crossed paths with the eccentric genius Paul White. That bond built an entire project set to drop February 25th, but we are gifted with the first rumblings of White Sands this week. This pick was an easy pick for me this week, and one spin of this record should drive home why.
This week I decided to go with a diverse group of MGK, FatKidsBrotha, and Vic Mensa. FatKidsBrotha decided to drop their visual for their track “Discreet.” The video features the duo on a normal day of drug slinging, chillin, and hanging around the neighborhood. Their latest mixtape, Eastside Paradise 2, is available for download if you need some new trunk music. Vic Mensa shook the rap industry with yet again another top notch release. Vic and Disclosure linked up while on tour to give us this remix of Disclosure’s song “When A Fire Starts To Burn.” Last but not least is my favorite of the three called “Mind Of A Stoner.” This track features the TGOD general, Wiz Khalifa, and takes the perspective of an average Joe. All three of these tracks were high quality, but if you’re looking for some new music to bump you got to check out that new new from Vic and Two-9.
