New’L – Pay Schemes & Daydreams [Mixtape]

Tweet

Calgary, AB — On Sept. 16, New’L finally dropped his debut Pay Schemes & Daydreams mixtape. The tape was put on hold for a while. But New’L built up some significant hype around it and made the anticipated drop via DatPiff yesterday. By the end of the day, the tape had made it to the eighth most downloaded DatPiff tape of the day. Though New’L isn’t from Calgary (he’s a Toronto export), the YYC is happy to have him. New’L first came under our radar because of his sick KOTD battles. Since then, he’s opened for Pusha T, Big Sean, and more. And now he’s spitting it as a solo MC.

New’L strikes a balance between paying homage to the old school, while experimenting with some of the newer sounds (most of which are produced by Calgary’s Makemdef). New’L is neither boom-bap, nor trap-rap. He shows love to both styles. And he messes with some pretty high-profile material (Pete Rock, Childish Gambino, 9th Wonder, and more). His team-up with Makemdef keeps things nice and Calgary-represented. They push each other a little out of the comfort zone and the result is a tape of beautiful raw hip-hop. Check it out after the jump and head over here to cop the download.
