Like every year, this past week was rather slow due to the madness that is SXSW (which included our annual DopeHouse party being shut down by the local sheriffs, SMH). Still, good music was released. Vince Staples, Bad Lucc and newcomers Anti-Lilly and Niko Is released projects; while new (maybe old) music surfaced from Daft Punk, JAY Z, CunninLynguists, 50 Cent, Blu, Jay Electronica, DOOM, Freddie Gibbs, YG, Kendrick Lamar and others.
Unfortunately most of the crew was down in Austin for the festival, and we had no time to put together the latest installment of #theMondayMix. However, I did compile a list of the week's best tracks and supplied links down bottom.
