This is some new Goldini Bagwell from his recently announced, Smoker’s Jacket series. He will be dropping a new single on the 14th of every month. This production from Dalton Jay gives Bagwell a lot of room to breathe and lends itself to creative license.
Stay tuned for more dope.
I am not up on Union Blak but the project is put out by the Effiscienz camp which has been on a roll as of late (ie Fel Sweetenberg’s latest album). Street English is a nice track that has a throwback appeal ala Gangstarr in the mid 90s and it happens to be the title track for the album dropping on February 9th.
New video from Madchild’s forthcoming album, Silver Tongue Devil, which also serves as an introduction to the newest member of the Battle Axe family, Demrick. Madchild drops tha demented lyricism and Demrick has a very straight forward and heavy flow. C-Lance on the production.
Little Vic is firing up the new music with some intelligent wit over some slick production by Slyvestbeats. I mean who else can incorporate Machiavelli and the Borgias into a verse? I think that’s a little too Italian for y’all. At any rate, I can’t wait for his new mixtape, The Loosies Collection to drop.
The art of story telling is on full display with this bonus track from DJ Jean Maron’s latest album, True School. And who does he solicit to write the story to the music, none other than M-Dot. And he weaves the hard luck tale to perfection.
Admittedly I have been out of the loop for more than a minute. A lot on this plate but I heard this song and wanted to be able to share. Ryu shares some of life’s regrets and observations over an Apathy production.
Cashus King (fka Co$$) is back with a new album, CHURCH (of the good thief). This is one of the iTunes bonus cuts from the album and he packs a lot of soul and feeling into this song. The thing that separates Chasus from his contemporaries is the way he melds mortality into the thoughts of the divine. Nobody relates concepts of humanity quite like him. I can’t wait to check the album.

It’s more than just a Army Of The Pharaohs thing. It’s more than just a Houston to Philadelphia thing. The Monster And Mr. Arnell is a showcase of some of the most promising talent, not only on the AOTP team but currently in the game as a whole. I have been showcasing V-Zilla for quite a while now as an emcee and Lawrence Arnell on his production credits. Now the two have combined to deliver a compelling project for hip hop heads of all walks to appreciate.
The ‘W’ is back in the building with Born Allah leading the pack. And he’s got LuckIAm and J-Ro helping to represent the Left Coast on this joint with a funky bass line aptly entitled, Westside. Good rhymes. Good vibes.
Wow. I showcased this single over a year and a half ago and I forgot how dope Whosane is! And you know what? I missed his project from 2013, Brooklyn To Capetown, but I am about to rectify that faux paus immediately. And after you here this song again, you are going to have to DL that too. But it also bears mentioning that this song also appears on the Straight Path Jewlz Mixtape which showcases a lot of other dope artists though it does come in at a hefty cost of $12. The choice is yours but enjoy the song/video.
