Nottz f/ Pusha T & Dwele – “You Need This Music” | New Music

One of hip-hop’s most revered beatsmiths (just ask Dr. Dre, who ranks him as one of his all-time favourites), Nottz seems to have a constant flow of good music pouring from his producer’s ear. Having remained relatively low-key since late 2010, when the Norfolk, VA native made his LP debut with You Need This Music and followed up with the Asher Roth-accompanied Rawth EP, Nottz Raw will return to his hosting duties tomorrow (June 5th) with the release of In My Mind EP.

Today we get the first leak from the EP – which comprises of eight new, existing and remixed tracks – with “You Need This Music”, complimented by the sweet, sweet croons of veteran singer Dwele and the assertive bars of Young Money enemy number one Pusha T. Nottz’s clunking hump slots nicely in the backdrop.

In My Mind also features contributions from Pete Rock, The Alchemist and Royce Da 5’9″ and is available to pre-order on iTunes. Additionally, check out Nottz’ recent interview with Takin’ Mines, where he delves deeper into his new project among a plethora of other topics.
