With two-plus decades in the rap game, it’s nuts how consistently fresh that Notes Floats is able to continue to be with each new release. His latest project, FULL STEAM AHEAD, has all the earmarks that we’ve come to know and love from a Notes Floats project : funk-laden production with a quirky edge, humorous and witty lines with an acute sharpness to them, a focus that is not lost in the humor, and quality guest verses, this time from the likes of Gorilla Monk, and Devo. This album also has a running theme of trains throughout, including a free-form sonic, poetic exploration to close out the proceedings. If you dug the Triple Dang Snap single, then buckle up for a memorable ride.

Notes Floats is at it again, and all of us old-school Austin hip-hop heads can get properly hype about it. FULL STEAM AHEAD is apparently in the works, and if TRIPLE DANG SNAP is any indication of what’s in store, it’s going to be another win for Notes, the losing champion. Notes does what he does best on this one, spitting humble brags and dropping properly dope references over a Gorilla Monk beat. This one is catchy as hell, hitting all the right tones and attitudes to keep the gears turning and your head nodding. Dig this one and dig it good, share it around, and leave a comment.
You already know what it is when it comes to the mad genius Notes Floats. If there were a contest for hardest working man in Austin hip-hop, Notes Floats would hands down be a finalist. His latest project, LIGHTNING BUTTER, is another sure shot in a catalog full of standout work. Dude has the touch on the beats and the lyrics, and his covers are either extremely compelling or hilarious. Cop this one, and keep your eyes and ears open, because word on the street is that he’s already in the studio working on a full length.

There are not many forces of nature comparable to my main man Notes Floats. Dude is a one man army on the beats and rhymes, and lately, he’s been pushing things forward with the music videos as well. His latest creation, Lightning Butter, is an announcement for the upcoming EP of the same name, and it’s funky like you’d expect a Notes Floats track to be. His music video approach works well with the tracks, and Lightning Butter is no exception.. simple, but efficient, and relevant to what he’s spitting. Dope as always, so check it out, like it and share it.
Quality and consistency. That’s what we’ve come to expect from Notes Floats. Dude has been in the beats and rhymes game for ages, and in this time, he has developed a culture.. a presentation.. an aura that speaks his brand. His latest music video, Same Page, seems to capture his aesthetic perfectly, and it fits into his video canon very nicely. Give it a watch, give it a like, and give it a share or comment (or both)!
Back to back posts for Notes Floats! This is a selection from the Same Boat EP, brought to life in video form… share it, love it, and enjoy it!

New music from one of the hardest working cats in the Texas hip hop circuit, Notes Floats. His new effort, SAME BOAT, is super solid on both the production and the rhymes, as always.. I could spend some time putting together some words about, or you can trust a name that means quality and jump on this new Notes Floats release, and win.
