The Playlist: 2 Chainz ft Kanye West / Toro Y Moi / The Coup featuring Das Racist and Killer Mike / Wu-Tang Clan and Kool G Rap / Holy Ghost!
2 Chainz ft Kanye West
Funkystepz's “Miami Bass Edit” is the version to listen to; moving the track from generic, monochrome hip-hop to a technicolor celebration of eccentricity.
Toro Y Moi
So Many Details
A departure for Chaz Bundick as he moves from stoner funk into soft seduction. Recalls Serge Gainsbourg.
The Coup ft Das Racist and Killer Mike
A funky but politically-charged promo track from the group's forthcoming “Sorry to Bother You” LP.
Wu-Tang Clan and Kool G Rap
Rivers of Blood
Yet another excellent cut from the soundtrack of the Quentin Tarantino-produced film “The Man With the Iron Fists”.
It Gets Dark
Downbeat and moody, this song builds from minimalism to an expansive soundscape without compromising its menace.
