Tres Records – Nueve

Nueve

Does Tres know how to put out a beat tape or what?!? This is one of those sneaky sneak attacks on your ear drums. A heavily independent hip hop label cranks out a beat tape, Nueve, showcasing damn near an evil genius lineup. I’m not going to name names, but it will fry your brain. Nueve is one of those albums where I saw the album artwork first and said, “hmmm what’s this?” Nueve had me motivated and bebopping around the office. Tres is not one you should be sleeping on. They are cranking out the albums. I’ve got another Tres release, Fonetik Simbol – Super Chop Beat Tape, next in the headphones. Download Tres Records 9th Anniversary beat tape on TresRecords.com. BIG shout to the good folks at Tres for keeping me up to par.

 

House Shoes – LET IT GO

This is truly the album everyone from Detroit to L.A. has been waiting for. House Shoes is either a marketing genius or he’s winging it, but he has built a huge following that’s been asking for this album. House Shoes dropped a few tracks over the years on several different projects like Starship 27 (vol. 1 & 2), but LET IT GO is all out nuts. You know that album where you are 9 tracks deep and you’re shocked that you are that far into it? LET IT GO is like that, but you’re on the 2nd or 3rd rotation. I was going to mention a few tracks to talk about, but I didn’t skip a track. I will mention Castles (tHE SKY IS Ours) featuring the lovely Jimetta Rose hit me hard every time. /// THE DEER /// House Shoes is dropping the video to these tracks and Time, featuring BIG Tone, is the first one out the gate. I’m sure more are coming. On a side note, buy a physical copy of LET IT GO. It not only has dope packaging design with nice photos by Eric Coleman, but it also comes with all of the instrumentals! I just realized I haven’t even talked about the who’s who on this album. You’ll discover that for yourself and you won’t be disappointed. Enough talking go buy House Shoes – LET IT GO on Amazon. BIG thanks to House Shoes for making an album that I don’t have to skip any tracks on. Keep it going brother.

House Shoes - Keep On ft. Co$$ Aka Cashus King / Helluva

Co$$ x Numonics – Revelations

Not sure if you guys know about Tres Records, but they are cranking out great artists. Co$$ (aka Ca$hUSKing) has joined that group of talented folks. February/March Co$$ is gearing up to drop his LP on Tres Records, but before that let’s talk Revelations. Co$$ teamed up with Hip Hop producer Numonics from Florida that did a bang up job on these beats. I gotta do some more digging on Numonics, and from what I get from Revelations I know I need to keep my ears open for this dude. The combination of the 2 feels like it was meant to be. Co$$ gives a natural flow over Numonics upbeats tempos, and with guest appearances like Freddie Gibbs on Gone, you can’t help but to put Revelations on repeat. Keep an eye out for Co$$’ LP on Tres Records and download Co$$ x Numonics – Revelations here. BIG thanks to Chikara for the heads up.

Late Bloomers – Three Shades Brown

A while back I got an email from these cats called the Late Bloomers ( Ahh:Zel, Nonstop & DJ ReallyNathan). The name was catchy and the music was good. It was their Growth Series 2 album that made me want to keep a close eye on them. The production is dope and their lyrics about what’s going on with them. It’s more of a personal journey into the lives of the Late Bloomers. It was well worth it to see what else they would pop up with.The Late Bloomers have linked up with the LA label Tres Records to bring you Three Shades Brown. Right away you can hear the growth in their sound, and the subject matters they talk about are grown folks issues. Money Maker kicks off talking about working the graveyard shift to trying to hustle making money spitting lyrics. Three Shades Brown worth checking out. Buy the Late Bloomers – Three Shades Brown at Fat Beats. Also check out Growth Series 2. BIG thanks to the Late Bloomers for keeping me posted on their projects, and a BIG shout to Chikaramanga at Tres.
