Starlito and Don Trip's "Leash on Life
Starlito and Don Trip recently released the second video from their upcoming collaborative album Stepbrothers 2. The cleverly titled “Leash on Life” features “third stepbrother” Kevin Gates on the hook. Starlito recently referred to the music he’s making as “gangster consciousness,” and this new track is a prime example. 'Lito and Trip trade verses, discussing gun rights/violence, bullying and self-defense in this dramatic new video. Trust me, watch it all the way to the end.
Stepbrothers 2 drops Oct. 17.
Kidsmeal's Endless Summer
DJ/producer Kidsmeal has been playing a lot of shows lately, but this week he dropped his first mixtape in quite some time. For everyone who’s already missing the fading warm weather (and for those who aren’t) comes Endless Summer, a mixtape made in collaboration with Elm & Oak. Get it right here. It’s not your stereotypical mix. Trap- and bounce-infused sounds are met with a few more obscure cuts. Let Kidsmeal help you ride those good vibes well into November.
