Keef's teased out several different soon-to-be-released full-length projects throughout the year, but nothing's come of it. Watching him drop several different songs in immediate succession coupled with the news that he's aiming to release a mixtape at the end of the month—Back From the Dead 2, which will apparently be quickly followed up with a mixtape called Gloyalty—means it's more likely that these full-lengths will actually see the light of day.
In the middle of Keef's spurt of releases Hurt Everybody's Supa Bwe dropped a solo EP, 10-4; the title refers to the rapper-producer's birth date, and he turned 25 on Saturday. Supa Bwe has a proclivity for experimentation, which is all over Hurt Everybody's great self-titled debut EP (it's actually as long as an album, but the group calls it an EP), and his most audacious turns on 10-4 are the most rewarding. The minute-and-a-half-long bonus track, "Birds," is a particular treat, as Supa Bwe busts out a sweet patois to rap-sing over a sleepy chiptune synth and what sounds like a minimal kettle-drum beat. It's equal parts moody and euphoric, and Supa Bwe hits the notes just right with his carefree performance. Take a listen to all of 10-4 below.
