The past week has been filled with our year-end lists—we have a few more coming next week!—and one damn-good reason to note completely write off the Goodie Mob reunion. Nosaj Thing’s entire album, Home, also popped up online for streaming (!) one month early and El-P decided to end his year with an absolutely monstrous verse on A-Trak’s “Piss Test” remix.
There was also another break-up this week. Following the lead of Das Racist, the Cool Kids finally revealed that they will no longer record music under that name. There will be more Chuck and Mikey tracks in the future, just not as the Cool Kids. Weird. Jay Electronica emerged from his cave for a guest verse and we saw some great free downloads from the likes of SBTRKT and Dam-Funk. Below, we listed some of our favorite singles from the past week.
- A-Trak – “Piss Test” F. Jim Jones, Flatbush Zombies & El-P
- Burial – “Truant” & “Rough Sleeper”
- Supastition – “Yada Yada”
- Bilal – “Back to Love”
- Clu – “Moonrunner” F. Gemma Dunlovely
- Oh No – “Jones’s” F. Blu & MED
