Underground New York rapper Billy Woods has been having a pretty great year. He teamed with producer Kenny Segal for the March release of Hiding Places, which is rightfully getting recognized as one of the best of the year, and more recently he put out the new album Terror Management. It continues his hot streak and it features Fielded, Mach-Hommy, Pink Siifu, AKAI SOLO, and more, plus production from Blockhead, Elucid, and more. Woods has now scheduled a hometown Terror Management release show for January 19 at Mercury Lounge with support from fellow great, prolific NYC underground rapper MIKE, plus Terror Management contributors Elucid (who is also one half of Armand Hammer with Billy Woods), Fielded, and AKAI SOLO. Tickets are on sale now.

MIKE's Tears of Joy has also been getting recognized as one of the year's best albums (it made Pitchfork's list). Stream that and Terror Management below.

AKAI SOLO also released a collaborative album with the aforementioned Pink Siifu in October, and today Pink Siifu premiered a new video for "pull up" on The FADER today and you can watch that below too.
