Meyhem Lauren is a true school Queens, New York original. After dropping outerboro knowledge jewels around the globe on tour with Action Bronson, he’s back home and repping harder than ever with the upcoming free album Piatto D’Oro on Fool’s Gold.
Premiered by Stereogum, “Bonus Round” is a taste of what’s in store: smoothed out samples and knucklehead raps (“whole squad tatted up like Yakuza / we ain’t worried ‘bout getting jobs, you fuckin’ loser”) from a Who’s Who of NY rap royalty: Mey, Action, Long Island legend Roc Marciano and king of outros Big Body Bes. Stay tuned for more gems off Piatto D’Oro in the coming weeks!

Premiered today on The FADER and produced by new beat hero Kaytranada, “Dance” is unlike anything we’ve heard from Rome before — a melodic anthem in the grand tradition of dance-my-pain-away jams.
The single is another pleasing curveball from this one-of-a-kind artist, who’s equally at home trapping in a jeep with ILoveMakonnen and Rich The Kid on “No Ma’am” as he is guesting on Four Tet tracks and popping up at Boiler Room.
With his first international tour on deck and the single release (accompanied by a unique app that lets Rome chat direct to fans – and put his blue beard on their own pics!) the future is looking very bright for Rome. Stay tuned for more as he puts his finishing touches on the “Dance” video and his highly-personal upcoming Fool’s Gold LP. Listen to “Dance” and check Rome’s tour dates after the jump.

Hoodboi is leading the pack of visionary young LA producers. His debut Fool’s Gold EP Palm Reader was an inspired, late-night take on international club sounds, bringing underground vibes to the masses while injecting his own unique brand of matrix-friendly dance appeal in the process. Now, the Athletixx producer gets taken for a spin himself on Palm Reader Remixes, featuring reworked EP tracks from his club-smashing peers. Vindata (Owsla) turn “By Ur Side” into a half-time masterclass in pitched vocals and triumphant laser riffs, while Alizzz (Mad Decent) drags “Shallow” into warehouse trap territory. The Lido-featuring title track gets three uniquely awesome versions: SIROJ funks out “Palm Reader” into a slow electronic strut, Fool’s Gold OG Treasure Fingers flips it into a modern garage house anthem, and Jesse Slayter cranks up the festival-ready #feels. It’s a wide-ranging batch of remixes that do justice to Hoodboi’s own high-res originals. We’ve gazed into the crystal ball… the future is bright!
Listen to the Jesse Slayter remix premier on Complex now, and pre-order Palm Reader Remixes for an instant download.
