No features. Just Price and Oktane and the tracks for their "Last Lights Left" album. But wait, in case there are haters about (because they show up any and everywhere), who want to say, "That all?" NO! Not all.
There's a documentary, too. Peep that above. And follow the iTunes link below.

3 new jawns on my soundcloud, no project related, just beats...
— KAYTRA (@KAYTRANADA) September 2, 2017
Um... okay K. So, just tossing these out there with no plan. Of course, we're good with that, but you good? Too late! Because we are taking these jawns and running with them. Hahaaa! Get at the streams family!
Simply titled "2017 07 04," "2017 09 01 - SUS," and "2017 - 38," these are the latest Kaytranada instrumentals.

Interesting point Yasiin made, speaking on Mayweather vs. McGregor... Conor just took a page out of Floyd's book. We saw it. Barking it up, making it an event (rather than a fight, we saw it was NOT a fight).
Yasiin Bey Talks opens up on the Mayweather/McGregor fight, South Africa Travel Issues, his thoughts on Colin Kaepernick's stance, tearing down of the US monuments, the current state of rap and more!
- HOT 97
Of course, esp. now that we are far removed from the 'event,' we can see what Yasiin sees: That Floyd-Conor do not keep doing business (e.g. that was a one-time thing).

Dope movies ought to have dope sounds associated with them, right? Yes. Like this "Pathways" flick. Good movie. Confirmed because the squad saw and approved (you should if you have not already). Now, for the tunes. Listennnn!
All music on this soundtrack either appeared in the film Pathways (Sean's Lament), has been used to promote the film or has been inspired by the film. These are some of my favorite songs from some of the dope artists I know and were part of my backdrop while writing the film. These artists' words and sound inspired me and I am grateful that they lent their talents to my dream. Thank you all.

Peep the trailer after the jump.
PATHWAYS: THE SOUNDTRACK (MIXTAPE)
Concert promoter Sean Pathways is searching for answers to his failures while carrying the pressures of everyone's chance at success. He attempts to balance a stagnant career and relationships with his music producing girlfriend (Beautiful) and his ex-girlfriend Ann. Ann is the leader of an all-female rap group he is promoting and Beautiful, under Sean's influence, produces the group. He finds himself wanting and expecting too much from every aspect of his life and something has got to give.
The film is loosely based on the Independent Hip-Hop Scene in Atlanta and features many of the artists, promoters, DJs, and producers that thrive there. The look, sound, and feel of the film are directly influenced by Eljay's years of covering the scene for his documentary series The Stand. The film's soundtrack, which is dominated by Atlanta's indie artists, authenticates the Emmy Nominated/Telly Award Winning Producer/Director's vision.

Is 400 years of slavery building this country (and oppression thereafter) plus many wars of service not enough to justify our right to have some say in its running... without having to hear, "You can leave it if you don't love it"... Well, isn't it? Answer: YES! Moreover, we are not going to be ousted by anyone. We helped BUILD this place 'they' say we can 'leave' (like it isn't OURS, too)! Sure, this declaration has an angry tone. So I will let activist/scholar James Baldwin say it. Words from so long ago. Could he have known they'd still be so applicable today?
Prior to the UK release of the Oscar-nominated documentary, I Am Not Your Negro, we take a look at a seminal speech by the film's subject - writer, essayist, poet and civil rights activist James Baldwin. At Cambridge University Union in 1965, Baldwin debates whether the 'American dream' has been achieved at the expense of African-Americans.
- The Guardian
Yeah. And Baldwin even has something to say about the flag in this. So on point.
