Madchild is taking no days off when it comes to releasing new music. A few months after releasing Lawnmower Man, the Swollen Members emcee, releases a video single for his upcoming album, Super Beast, which is due out later this year.
One of my favorite duos is back at it and innovating. The first thing you will notice here is the awesome cover art. Very 70′s! The second thing you will bear witness to is the AWESOME production from Eddie Logix. The production is perfection with that killer sample in conjunction with those drums. But Passalacqua injects their own vision of perfection onto the track with clever lyricism and a chemistry that gets better and better with every release. They are incredibly versatile. I started this blog working with Mister and Blaksmith and that’s not changing any time soon.
This cut is part of a compilation CF HUSTLE: Portrait of A Gentleman and that will be dropping on March 24th. Stay Tuned!

Some albums ease a listener into the moment, while others grab you by the throat and demand your attention. Righteous Fury, the most recent album from Matt Maddox, is going to fall in the latter category. From the instant you hear the first cut. you are both engaged and threatened by what you hear. You are threatened because, from the jump, you find out that Maddox is not going to be mincing words and he will name names of those siting on the pedestals. He has thrown ‘today’s hip hop’ on it’s head and as a listener you can not remove the headphones, you become obligated to listen to this release from start to finish.
Anytime you can skateboard and do flips while flowing, you are going to get someone’s attention. Hence the case with Illuminate’s new video, Kamikaze. It’s an appropriate title for a track that approaches upon rapid fire delivery and reckless abandon. There’s not much in the way of conformity here. I am not going to say that this was a flawless performance. I would honestly like to hear Illuminate kick some verses without the double time, but I certainly can see the talent that abounds. We will keep our ears on this MTSU student’s future endeavors.
Good Gravy! There’s some dope lyricism to be found on this cut right here! This is yet another DOPE cut from the Scribbling Idiots’ forthcoming album, Invitation Only. The emcees are guided by the strings within the production and all emcees drop some dope gems but this line from Cas Metah had me run it back a couple of times:
Leave the street sweeper in the back soldier / Or I’ll be forced to leave blood on the door like Passover
Step your bible game up!
King Mez reminds us that he is pretty damn good and crafting excellent music with the track The Coming. This track is a loosie that prefaces Mez’s new project, Long Live The King II. It will not be on the album. The production by Elite incorporates a lot of different sounds. The piano and vocal sample are top notch as are Mez’s lyrical abilities
Sick Digger Crew in the building! There is so much right going on with this release from Crown (of Grim Reaperz) and Rasco. The beat is amazing with the piano keys just dancing across the hard hitting drum pattern. And let me be honest: It’s been a long time since I have listened to some bars from Rasco and he KILLED his verses. The flow was magnifique. The icing on the cake was Chinch 33 providing the cuts. That man is vastly underrated, but true heads know!
If you are feeling this track, make sure you check out Crown’s new album, Pieces To The Puzzle, and while you’re at it, ‘friend up’ the good people at Sick Digger to find out what they have on tap this year. It’s a dope camp of producers.
It’s a hustle and a grind, and it’s time to prove the naysayers and the haters what’s what…that’s what I am taking from this video single from Otis Clapp. The track is a high energy, rock infused joint that really easy to get into. Very entertaining. I also need to go on record and say I missed the #Fiona cut he dropped many moons ago, and that song is one of the top tracks this year…no doubt. If you are feeling up to it, make sure you check out his latest project, #ATB.
This new Cunninlyguists track sounds like a leaf in the wind (compliment). It’s very airy, light hearted, almost nonchalant. The track is off the forthcoming, Strange Journey Volume 3 which drops on April 1st.
