Why do we like this?

We never know where things will go, what they will amount to, and what will happen. We hope, plan, and pray, but there’s no knowing how the next moment will actually come together.

Most Akin’s “All The While” was built around an improvised take of guitars and drums. Outcome unknown, this Bristol-based multi-instrumentalist and producer created spontaneously and ended up with the final single off of his Fairlinch EP.

Likewise, while we do not know, we still plan, we create, we set forth with the hopes that wherever it is we land is as we wish for it to be. Yet with inescapable uncertainty, all that’s really left to do is to simply enjoy what is; and what is for me right now, is “All The While” and a beautiful view of a rainy Cape Town. Simple satisfaction.

Why do we like this?

Coming through with that much-needed Summer atmosphere in this cold and rainy Cape Town weather, Nashville-bassed singer-songwriter Mokita and LA-Based alt-pop duo slenderbodies mark their first collaboration with “Speeding Up.”

The music video features grainy, old-school footage of roller skaters, which may seem like an incongruent visual backdrop, but actually adds a sense of purity and sincerity to what is really a very unique and pretty track. They’re not even trying to be cool (unless wearing a helmet, knee pads and long socks was cool in the ‘70’s – oh wait, it probably was…okay, these people are actually super dope); the focus is more on the fact that a various group of people of differing ages, races and genders are all just enjoying themselves outside in the sunshine. Somehow, “Speeding Up” provides the perfect soundtrack.

It’s hard not to enjoy this track. Erring more towards the commercial pop side of the musical spectrum than we’re used to from slenderbodies, this track has enough texture and intricacy in its pretty, winding melodies to keep your interest deeply rooted. The synths and driving percussion provide a colorful electronic base for the dreamy falsetto, and everything gels together quite beautifully. It’s like a melting pot of electronica, indie, alt-pop goodness, and trust me, you’re definitely going to want to take a bite or two.

IDK & Denzel Curry – No Wave

[Chorus: IDK]
I’m goin’ uptown with a smile and my tongue brown
Rollie in my name, Plain Jane, what’s a bust down?
Nigga, I ain’t on what you on, you a fuckin’ fraud
You know that ain’t love, not at all
See, I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now
I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now
I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now
I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now

[Verse 1: IDK]
Ballin’ is a lay up, shots gon’ make you lay down
Niggas keep on hatin’, they know they ain’t safe now
I might have to take shit, run up in your safehouse
Did a show in Paris, now I’m off to Cape Town (run it, run it)
I came from spammin’ on DMs
But now shit done changed, I go HAM on your BM
They used to make fun of him, now they wan’ be him
See, I just be sonnin’ ’em, a.m. to p.m.​
You didn’t believe him and now you done changed
I’m no angel, the demon
Yeah, you like to smile in his face when you see him
That’s why I don’t look in your face for a reason
Bitch, this is a black bear in season

[Chorus: IDK]
I’m goin’ uptown with a smile and my tongue brown
Rollie in my name, Plain Jane, what’s a bust down?
Nigga, I ain’t on what you on, you a fuckin’ fraud
You know that ain’t love, not at all
See, I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now
I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now
I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now
I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now

[Verse 2: Denzel Curry]
Thurgood Marshall artist
If you try to hit a foul like Artemis, uh
For the new wave, I started it
Like a du-rag when you open up the starter kit, uh
Same shit but a new fly Jay I
D got a motherfuckin’ K on the side
Chopped off, now a nigga lay on the side
Yellow tape, everybody pray on the side
Noah’s ark, I made my mark
So, nigga, don’t start with me, don’t fuck with me
From the dust, I’m Spartacus
So anybody touchin’ me is first and three
Whirlwind mixed with a whirlpool
Denzel ’bout to make a fuckin’ typhoon
What can I say? I’m a boss tycoon
Coolest monkey in the jungle, not a baboon, ah

[Chorus: IDK]
I’m goin’ uptown with a smile and my tongue brown
Rollie in my name, Plain Jane, what’s a bust down?
Nigga, I ain’t on what you on, you a fuckin’ fraud
You know that ain’t love, not at all
See, I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now
I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now
I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now
I could fuck the wave up, bitch, that ain’t the wave now

Hopsin – Bus That

[Intro]
I’m on the road right now
Back of the tour bus, chillin’ (Kato on the track bih)
Just wanted to drop some shit
You know

[Verse 1]
Okay, a wise man told me
That niggas that you beef with will probably be your best pals
(Is that right?) Got my ear to the streets
And I notice everybody dropping shit, I feel left out
(Is that right?) If you in it for the cheese
This is real trap music, yeah, you go be a dead mouse
(Is that right?) You on a oneway street
Either collab or turn it around, that’d be your best route
Listen, y’all need to stop with the dissing
No one pays attention, so quit with the chitchat
Listen, y’all niggas steadily fishing
You riding me hard and my girl want my dick back
Listen, these niggas play like it’s cool
And then run their mouth soon as I’m leaving, why is that?
Listen, I’ve been touring off an album
I ain’t even dropped, you prolly think I rigged that (Nice)
I’m the plate, nigga, you just the dish rack
The whole Ill Mind series, I done did that
Niggas double taking, getting whiplash
How you tryna school me when I skip class
Confrontation with you is just quick cash
What the fuck you gon’ do when your shit crash?
I got the juice, don’t get caught in the splish splash
We don’t fit in together, we mismatched
I am the misfit that nobody likes
I am colder than ice, I will hold up your life
You bigging you up, you were so overhyped
You were no good with mics, you’ll be gone overnight
I saw my window and I dove on it right
Plus the flow is precise, I’m just rolling the dice
You claim that you got the shit on lock
Thinking you safe, but homie, I done broken it twice
Alright

[Chorus]
All around the fucking planet
Niggas on my shit, dog
West side, east side, north side, south side
Bitches on my dick, dog
Snatch yo’ freak, I’m that nigga
Cash on fleek, I’m that nigga
Past O.D., I’m that nigga
As for me, I’m that nigga
All around the fucking planet
Niggas on my shit, dog
West side, east side, north side, south side
Bitches on my dick, dog
Snatch yo’ freak, I’m that nigga
Cash on fleek, I’m that nigga
Past O.D., I’m that nigga
As for me, I’m that nigga

[Verse 2]
Look, got a brand new chick
She a law student working real hard out in Cape Town
(Cape Town, Cape Town) I became ill
When I hit the beat raw, it was ass up, facedown
(Facedown, facedown) Homie, you ain’t shit
You tryna shine, I’ma turn your sunlight into a gray cloud
(Rain, rain) Had to hit you with a new flow
Saying that I sound like Slim Shady during 8 Mile
You signed your life away to record labels
While I’m signing big ol’ voluptuous titties
I run through the city, the ladies are comfortable with me
They’re wet and I want to go swimming
A wonderful feeling (Woo)
I strike that pussy like a thunderbolt hitting (Woo, woo)
Ladies say "Oh my god, papi
It’s all in my hair now, your cum is so sticky" (Yikes)
Am I a sellout or prodigy?
Word on the street is the question is suss
(Suss) Niggas threw dirt on my name
It’s ironic that they just got left in the dust
(The dust) You got your head in the clouds?
I am convinced that your head is just stuck
Hmm, don’t make me go through my files
And pull all of your dirty evidence up
(Oh no) Niggas it’s been on, my pen strong
If one shot fires I’m Kim Jeong, so bitch, run
I sent bombs like ISIS from Islam
You drenched on with a light mist of piss, son
Who you know could get it like this? There is none
Rip your limbs, gone from a sick collision
See my nuts hang low, you can’t miss the big ones
I’m coming, nigga, here, tell your chick to sip some

[Chorus]
All around the fucking planet
Niggas on my shit, dog
West side, east side, north side, south side
Bitches on my dick, dog
Snatch yo’ freak, I’m that nigga
Cash on fleek, I’m that nigga
Past O.D., I’m that nigga
As for me, I’m that nigga
All around the fucking planet
Niggas on my shit, dog
West side, east side, north side, south side
Bitches on my dick, dog
Snatch yo’ freak, I’m that nigga
Cash on fleek, I’m that nigga
Past O.D., I’m that nigga
As for me, I’m that nigga
