11.21 – That New New

TNN is back in the fold this week after a week off and we’ve got some big records to share with you. It was literally a challenge to limit it to just 3 this week but here goes. First up is the official video to A Tribe Called Quest’s “We The People”, the lead single to their first LP in 18 years that went straight to #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Next, we’ve got a surprisingly great new sound to feature from Childish Gambino. He’s apparently ditched the rap in favor of some Prince and Funkadelic type vibes and the results are shockingly very dope. Finally, we’ve got a favorite album cut from the recently released new LP from Justice. Stream all 3 in full below.

6.27 – That New New

The end of June is upon us and summer is officially in full swing. And on the TNN tip, there is never any slowing down with solid and notable new tunes coming out. It seems to be just a way of life in 2016. First up, we’ve got a huge new posse cut from Jeezy, 2 Chainz and Future called “Magic City Monday”. 2 Chainz stays stealing the show like always. Second, we’ve got a new original from NY house producer, Moon Boots. He drops a really smooth foray into ’90s influenced classic dance vibes. Finally, we’ve got a new cut from THEY., an eclectic duo that’s burst onto the music scene in the last 12 months. Their latest, “Say When”, is a super rouged and bluesy banger. You can stream all 3 in full below.

Help Us Help The People Of Flint

This Saturday we will be collecting donations of water, baby formula, hand sanitizers and cleaning wipes to send to Flint, Michigan. As you’ve surely seen on the news or social media, Flint is suffering a dire situation with lead infused water running from their faucets for months now. We learned about the #BrooklynLovesFlint project recently and wanted to do something to help. Please bring these much needed necessities with you to the Bell House on Saturday night so we can all help folks in need!

1.18 – That New New

TNN has become synonymous with Monday’s and getting your week started off right while listening to some freshly cut, recently released jams. We’ve got three new ones for you this week including one of the hardest tunes from Future’s surprise mixtape release Saturday night. We’ve also got some funky and soulful future bass from newcomer Goldwash. Finally, we’ve got the first official song from the upcoming Majid Jordan album forthcoming on OVO. All three streaming in full below.
