i don’t make music just to make it. i believe in the power + artform of hip hop — its ability to communicate messages + shape culture + people. i respect the slow process of perfecting the craft. sometimes the way forward is to retrace the methods of those before you #Nov8
Nobigdyl - Lowercase Tape!
LOWERCASE TAPE is more than an album. It’s not a project that was meant just for directories. It’s not a conglomerate of dyl. and labelmates chasing one, flat narrative through music. The album is not even a frivolous mixtape of random tracks that dyl. thought just needed to be released.
LOWERCASE TAPE is art.
It’s the end of an artistic journey. It’s the culmination of texts, calls, recordings, samples, trips, bars, thoughts, and ultimately of who Christ has compelled nobigdyl. to be. The project is just simply great. It’s spontaneous, bouncy, diverse, deep, lyrical, and it’s classic, authentic nobigdyl. It was long-awaited, much anticipated, and truly, now, celebrated. If you haven’t heard it by now, please, I beg you… do yourself the favor. This is not the creation of the album or the request of the fans. This is truly the art of the mixtape. Don’t take my word for it… take nobigdyl.’s word for it:
Check out LOWERCASE TAPE by nobigdyl. out on all streaming platforms… and of course, DatPiff.

Kanye West - Jesus Is King
West’s follow-up to 2018’s ye was initially teased back in August, when Kim Kardashian West hinted at its release by tweeting a photo of a handwritten tracklist and the date September 27. On the night of the 27th, Kim announced that the album would arrive two days later. It did not materialize.
At several points on the album, Kanye references the 13th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, which established the abolition of slavery. The text of the 13th Amendment reads: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” On the song “On God,” Kanye raps, “13th Amendment, gotta end it, that’s on me.”

Eshon Burgundy - 'For the Love of Money'
“..FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL KINDS OF EVIL...”
...but it is also Eshon Burgundy's latest and arguably, best album to date. Arriving more than three years after his last full length project, in 'For the Love of Money' longtime fans will find an Eshon filled with conviction and passion in an experience reminiscent of what they found in their favorites from the Philadelphia, PA emcee. Newcomers will find a master craftsman who weaves in and out of each song with skill, conviction and creativity. With sonic landscapes from NFTRY Members Rising Son and J. Rhodan, as well as DaBoomSquad, Carnegie and Tommy Black, 'For the Love of Money' presents the freshness of Blood Rushing to My Head, the grit of For God's Sake, the polish of The Fear of God and the creative courage found on The Passover; vintage, and yet it feels like the beginning of something new for Eshon Burgundy and the NFTRY.
