Stream: Kendrick lamar - ADHD

We featured 23 year old Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar only last week with his clip for 'Tammy's Song' and now he's back with a cracking track 'ADHD'.  Growing up in one of the most violent suburbs in the US, Lamar listened to the sounds of the greats like Biggie, Tupac, Dr Dre and eventually found his way into rapping and started patterning his flow after east coasters like Nas and Jay-Z. 

So whilst he reps for Cali and still calls it his home, he has a flow that appeals to both sides of the continent, and is slowly spreading internationally.

Video: Tala - Heartstrings

Another new artist out of Europe, There isn't much info about Tala, other than she has this dramatic, slightly haunting yet ultimately danceable slice of Europop.  Enjoy.  Or Don't.

Video: Six D - Best Damn Night

I'm not usually one to fawn over teenage pop 'bands', but I thought this new group out of the UK was rather catchy.
