“Money Trees”
by Kendrick Lamar ft. Jay Rock

Fresh off of Kendrick Lamar’s album, “Good kid M.A.A.D city” comes one of the most standout tracks, “Money Trees.” Kendrick Lamar is being seen as one of the few rappers keeping hip hop alive through his impressive story telling. Kendrick has been around for a few years now but he’s finally getting the recognition he deserves. Check him out if you haven’t already.

“Cubism Dream”
by Local Natives

Local Natives are an indie rock band based in L.A. I came about Local Natives on a random Last FM station and haven’t turned back once. Cubism Dream was the initial song I heard from what is now one of my favorite bands. I find myself listening to their debut album “Gorilla Manor” from beginning to end pretty frequently. If you like what you hear, their second album, “Hummingbird,” comes out early next year.

“Meet the Frownies”
by Twin Sister

I found this track while looking at samples from Kendrick Lamar’s album. Anyone who is already a fan may recognize this as the sample used for “The Recipe” ft. Dr. Dre. Twin Sister is an indie pop band from Long Island, with a very chill and distinctive sound. I’m looking forward to hearing more from them.

“Tick, Tock”
by Pusha-T, Raekwon, Joell Oritz, Danny Brown

This track comes off the “Man with the Iron Fists” soundtrack. With a great line up with artists ranging from Wu-Tang to G.O.O.D music (and one of my personal favorites Danny Brown,) you can’t go wrong. Hip hop at its finest.
