Trouble Knows Me

Genre blends, they’re mostly quirky if not plain ol’ repugnant, but when it works, another light bulb turns on in the Bat Cave of your mind. Samuel T. Herring, the frontman of Future Islands, and the rapper-producer Madlib have released a self-titled track under the moniker Trouble Knows Me.

The Game feat. Drake – 100

Between 40’s pounding beat (think: Who’s better built upon Kanye’s soul sounds?) and The Game’s Nas-like flow, “100” is a definitive banger. Oh yeah, Drizzy gets a little inventive on this track too.

This is existential rap.
