It’s been a long time coming, but Ft. Lauderdale emcee Trav Williams is ready to make a comeback. First heard in 2008 with his debut project, The Trickle Down, Trav became a fav here at KN… so much, in fact, that we invited him to record to our Illmatic remix project and dub it IllTravis in 2009. Four years and a few mixtapes later, Trav Williams is gearing up to drop P.O.E. (Preponderance of the Evidence). Similar to IllTravis, P.O.E. is a flip on a classic 90s album — Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt.

South Jersey's Ricky Rude and Los Angeles' Glasses Malone are quite possibly hip-hop's 'Odd Couple.' On Ricky Rude's new track, "Good Mood," which samples the theme song from the classic sitcom "The Odd Couple," the New Jersey troubadour trades bars with YMCMB's Glasses Malone, as they tell listeners everything that puts them in a good mood. The song is a well-combined mixture of braggadocio and feel-good vibes, setting the mood for summer festivities. Ricky and Glasses are set to release a video for the song later this month. The song will also be featured on Ricky’s upcoming mixtape, "The Unprofessional Professional."
