There's a shit load of beat tapes out there. That's a bad thing and a good thing. Bad when you're sifting through hundreds of Araabmuzik wannabes from trendy art colleges, good when you find artists like A-Rayz. This 18-year-old from Lexington, MA released his first today (5 For a Thousand), stuffed with Chiddy Bang-ish beats, fluttering synths, and trendy samples. I bet at least one song will make it on to your summer of 2012 playlist. Enjoy.
