After dropping off "Cole Summer" last night, J. Cole serves up another treat with the sequel to February's Truly Yours EP. Like the previous installment, the six-track EP is composed of previously unreleased material and songs that were left on the cutting room floor. With features and production from 2 Chainz , Young Jeezy , Bas , Jake One , and Canei Finch , this iteration is even better than the last. If this is the material that didn't make the album, you have [...]

Tuxedofunk put out a 3-track EP about a month ago that we've been jamming to nonstop. At this point very little is know about who they are, but rumor has it the project is a meeting of minds between the smooth crooning Mayer Hawthorne and famed hip-hop producer Jake One . The vocals certainly do sound strikingly similar to (read: exactly like ) the crisp stylings of Hawthorne. One thing we do know for sure is this EP is ridiculously great. All three tracks feature an undeniably smooth mix of Soul, R&B, and Funk, and will be firmly [...]
Deen's advice column is coming soon. From now on, every time that I write about R&B or pop music, I'll be comparing it Justin Timberlake's latest effort: The 20/20 Experience. "Why?" Because the distinct aroma of averageness leaking from that album makes it the perfect threshold for good vs. not good determination. Basically, if your shit sucks more than 20/20 - it sucks. If your album is even slightly more interesting, then it's good. Simple as. But on to why we're here today. I'm here to add Tuxedo's EP [...]
New joint from Brother Ali produced by Jake One. Heater. Love the beat, love the flow. Dig it.
Move over Chromeo , there's a new funky dance group heavily influenced by 80s disco boogie. Their name is Tuxedo and they cryptically claim to be from somewhere along the "West Coast" of the United States. Funky vintage Moog synths reference Zapp , and the soulful vocals are reminiscent of the new, soulful Justin Timberlake , although a rumor says Tuxedo is a secret side-project of singer Mayer Hawthorne and UK producer [...]
Another day, another great new video from the Rhymesayers camp! OccupyHomesMN.org just premiered Brother Ali's new video for "Work Everyday".

The Return Of The Backpack by Casual The long awaited highly anticipated release "The Return Of The Backpack" Produced by Jake One is available for Pre-Order now! Album information; All songs produced by Jake One. Jake and I began working on this album in 2009. Various complications made it difficult to present this music publicly in the past. We have agreed to release this project for fans who waited so long for this but THIS IS NOT THE "CASUAL JAKE ONE ALBUM!" so to speak,These are our previous recordings." Thank you [...]
I deserve a late pass here. Even though I heard this damn good, funky, exposition a week or so ago the ambiguity surrounding who this band was through me off. Now that I can name Jake One & Mayer Hawthorne as the players behind the well-groomed, groovy crew, Tuxedo, I feel much better. Stream the 3 track FreEP below. Definitely a style I think Jake & Chance could collab on again.
It looks like the comeback of Justin Timberlake 's got everyone stepping their soul game up. After Robin Thicke reemerged last week with his brand new single, " Blurred Lines ," mysterious soul group, Tuxedo , has also decided to show off why they're better than any old " Suit & Tie ." Rumored to be a collaboration between Motown crooner Mayer Hawthorne , and industry veteran Jake One , Tuxedo is a godsend for enthusiasts of the smooth and funky. Although the EP is only three songs deep, it has just enough flavor to [...]
I always love seeing Slug make an appearance on another artists' tack. It brings out a side of him that I don't think we always see on an Atmosphere record. Jake One steps in to spin this one and does a hell of a job like always. Take a listen and let us know what you think.
Seattle rhyme slinger Grynch has returned with a brand new remix featuring the likes of Bambu and Slug (of Atmosphere ) over a smooth backdrop provided by Jake One. Grynch is still riding off his solo release, Perspective , and "Mister Rogers" contains verses that pretty much encompass each MC's respective neighborhood. Grynch recorded his verse in Seattle and goes into his distaste for the Oklahoma City Thunder whiles Slug touches on what he's known for, Southside Minneapolis love. As for Bambu, he tells us to fix our "f*cking stares" when [...]

To celebrate the recent worldwide trending of his Pro Era crew, Brooklyn's young star, Joey Bada$$ , delivers a dope new track with fellow rising emcee, Chance the Rapper. On "Wendy N Becky," Joey spits with his impressive, classically-styled lyricism about some dangerous ladies over an appropriately smooth instrumental from the always jazzy Thelonius Martin. Chance, who hails from Chicago, holds his own with a light, syncopated flow. Enjoy this chilled-out cut below and look out for Joey and the Pro Era to take over this year. Bonus: [...]
Today is the first time we are featurin the very talented Chance the Rapper , besides his feature on the Hoodie Allen mixtape . He is rising young rapper coming up out of Chicago with a confident yet carefree style. Today we get "Acid Rain" off his upcoming Acid Rap mixtape set to drop in April. The production from none other then Jake One is obviously going to be solid, and paints the perfect simple canvas for Chance to spill his soul out on. This song has been [...]
Seeing Jake One's name listed as a track's producer automatically means pressing play on a track. For Chance The Rapper's "Acid Rain," Senor Uno's sparse but thumping number plays pushes [...] The post Chance The Rapper - "Acid Rain" (Prod. By Jake One) appeared first on The Smoking Section .
Given the tracks we've heard thus far, I have a really, really good feeling that Chance The Rapper 's new project will be pretty damn great. Following the bluesy lead of " Juice " is the equally ill "Acid Rain", a pure burner produced by Jake One . Backed by the Seattle producer's guitar lick and boom-bap drums, Chance flows effortlessly about missing diagonal grilled cheese, his big homie dying at a young age, and how he's hungry but not that thirsty. Why have we been sleeping on this guy again? Listen to and/or download [...]
