Peep the trailer for Mike Posner’s web series, “One Foot Out The Door”, which will debut on elitaste.com on September 30th. This series will correspond with the release of Mike’s new mixtape, also entitled “One Foot Out The Door.” The mixtape and series, which follows Mike as he balances his senior year at Duke with his full time music career, features appearances by Rosa Acosta, Wale, Gym Glass Heroes, Kid Cudi, Bun B, 3Oh3, 2AM Club and many more awesome people! It will also go behind the scenes of his shows, Austin City Limits, ThisIs50 Fest, the studio and even some important meetings. Tune in starting September 30th for Episode 1 and then every two weeks for a new episode.
This should be pretty interesting! Real excited to see everything come together because Posner is easily one of my favorite up and coming acts right now. Seeing him balance all of his music career on top of a full course load at Duke? Pretty crazy stuff. Can’t wait to see it all pan out.
Props to Elitaste.

Well I gotta feeling this might be a hit. Beat is kinda fresh right?
I about spit out my water when I heard the hook.
“Call me Mr. Flinstone cause I can make your bed rock”
I really like the material coming from this trio. A.R.M. is made up of M.anifest, Krukid and Budo. Some words from M.anifest about the project:
After releasing the joint with Brother Ali, we thought it would be useful to properly answer the “who the hell is A.R.M.?” question by liberating a series of songs that tell the story of our formation. It all began with this joint, “slow your roll,” – the very first joint the vocal section of A.R.M., Krukid (Uganda) and myself (Ghana), ever worked on.
It felt very organic, and despite being two cats from opposite ends of the continent our shared experiences certainly made it feel like the most effortless rap collab either of us had ever had. We later met up with the ultra-talented production arm (no pun intended) of our crew, Budo (Seattle) and the A.R.M. trifecta was born. This joint, though, is produced by O-D.
Here is the Brother Ali joint he mentions:
shouts to Mike over at MWB.

After some live footage of Mike Posner performing some of his cuts off his A Matter of Time mixtape at Miami University – the video announces that he he will have a brand new mixtape titled One Foot Out The Door dropping on October 29th. A web-series of the same name will also start sometime within the next few weeks. Sounds amazing!
I still can’t believe the underground college following that this kid has. Hell – I’m one of them.
The second track, “Tema do Canibal” off of BK-One’s upcoming album Rádio do Canibal. The song features the Chicago based nine piece horn and drum group the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble who have worked with the likes of Mos Def and Erykah Badu. The track was produced by BK-One & Benzilla.
This truly looks to be one of the most under the radar releases to drop this year. Above is a preview for the second track off BK-One’s new album. It sounds absolutely unbelievable. One of my most anticipated this year.
