It's always refreshing when you hear a track that has one of those beats that forces you to pay attention to the lyrics and when the lyrics are fire, it's hard not be impressed!  Put two bar-smiths on a mellow beat, with flows that only compliment the vibe of the song which makes "Darkness in the Abyss" all the more enjoyable.

Darkness In The Abyss is...

  It's been a minute but we are back with another edition of Music Mondays! You should be familiar with this artist because he's been making Waves since 1999 (my fans will get the reference).

If you know me, you know I'm really into the underground hip hop scene. With the radio airwaves being dominated by Trap and Top 40, I find it difficult at times to find music that you won't hear 40 times a day. Well, enter Earl Sweatshirt, one of the more popular artists from Odd Future music collective which includes most notably, Tyler the Creator, Frank Ocean and Syd the Kid. For me, Earl represents a segment of hip hop that is hyper focused on Lo Fi style beats, aromatic samples, and a chill bass that forces you to listen to...
