Life is too short to listen to bad music. So let Ambrosia for the heads sift through it for you and only provide you with this great stuff. Despite the reports, hip-hop is alive and well and in many ways better than it ever was. Not only can we go back and listen to all of our favorites with the click of a button, there’s also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and old alike…if you know where to look. To help you with this task, we have created a playlist with recently released music. We update it regularly, so subscribe to follow us on Spotify if you like what you hear.
Earlier this month, ScHoolboy Q added to his solo catalog for the first time in a long time. “Soccer Dad” demonstrated growth and personal change for Groovy Q. Now, after Kendrick Lamar slated an album release date for next month, another Black Hippy faction is coming out with rare and provocative music. Ab-Soul released “Hollandaise”, his first track since “Dangerookipawaa Freestyle” released two years ago this week. During this hiatus, Ab appeared for collaborations with Russ, Kembe X and Jhene Aiko.

This time, the MC from Carson, Calif., uses brunch food: Eggs Benedict. He comes out swinging: “Get off my dick, let me talk my shit, let me show ’em how I feel, for real / These niggas ain’t sick, they ain’t got no skills, they ain’t got no will, for real / I was ten and two on Central, trying to make my dream come true / Youngin from Del Amo, trying to let you know what we’re going through.“In the first verse, he talks about focusing on rapping instead of street temptations. At the end of the second verse, Ab’s pun explains the title of the condiment: “We knock ’em out like mama say, raising all the stakes/ To earn this shit, I was addicted, I need Hollandaise.“Obviously the addiction has brought the respected stalwart of Top Dawg Entertainment back into the pit.
On the AFH playlistlisteners can also hear recent music from ScHoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar & Baby Keem, Bas, BJ The Chicago Kid and Alchemist.
