Akrobatik and LX Beats invite a few friends to rock over one of their cuts and the results are as expected: Dope. It’s a mingling of known and unknown quantities. We know what Reks, Akrobatik, and Chino XL are prone to deliver, but Redrama and Are stand a little less familiar, but it’s all good as everyone delivers a nice touch to the production from LX-Beats.
This is bound to be one of the hidden gems of 2015. Jered Sanders delivers lyrical genius in heavy doses with, God’s Gift. Sanders simply is not your average run-of-the-mill emcees. He is extremely clever with wordplay and that is evident with every song he has dropped. The beat takes a minute to settle in, but once Analogic assembles all the components, I am hooked.
I haven’t checked the entire album yet, but I am about to. The album is called, Daylight Saving’s Time.
..it’s a breeze when I come off the top like a weather vain
J-Live is dropping his new album, How Much Is Water?, a little later on this month, meanwhile he drops the single, Numbers and Letters, featuring Rome Supreme. This track is about coming to the realization of self-worth and confidence to attain the individual victory. It’s all about understanding the past to seize the future. Powerful messages released.
Shabaam Sahdeeq has been steadily dropping releases for the better part of two decades. That type of longevity is hard to duplicate these days. The best part of it is, that he gets better with every release. He’s not stale, he is more dynamic than ever. A true master of his craft flippin’ over this Big Ape beat, representing for his upcoming project dropping this month, Modern Artillery.
This video represents one of the many ill tracks that can be found on DJ Soko’s new album, Domino Effect. Man, Hassan Mackey, Marvwon, and Finale body this tight beat from Soko. The flows are certified, legitimate, and complimentary. I am particularly fond of Finale dropping some mythology on us with the Icarus line.
Be sure to check out thew new album!
This is the second single from Mayhem and The Soulslicers collaborative album, Soul It May Seem. I do have to say that I am not a Patriots fan of any sort but I will support these guys for the duration. Patriots is a tribute to Boston and sports team. It also showcases the gang’s creativity with M-Dot, Edo G, and Mayhem all taking on a color of the franchise to show their support. Big Shug lends his talents and skills to doing the hook. Very creative material.
Nefew has a new track out that features the sounds and samples of jazz legend, Charles Mingus. It’s a really slick track that features duos own production as well, flexing their dexterity. Enjoy this, as it seems they are going to be cranking out some free joints for the foreseeable future.
J-Live has a new album dropping in a few weeks entitled, How Much Is Water?. As most of us who have paid attention to hip hop within the last decade, J-Live is known for his word play mastery. He is the true definition of the word ’emcee’. He just has so much dexterity when it comes to his flow. His word combinations and ideas are anything but standard. He has been ahead of the curve for much of his career and I believe this release will be no different.
P.So and 2 Hungry Bros. back up their collaborative musical effort, Feast Of Legend, with a video for the single, Fire In The Hole. This is the place where great music meets innovative and interesting video concepts. Who would’ve though that the term ‘fire in the hole’ would take on the concept of a hot wings eating contest?
First and foremost, Dirt Disciples consists of the raw and gritty duo, Rome Clientel and DJ Concept and they are about to hit you with a new project, The Ambition, which is dropping on October 9th. This single features a very recognizable beat as well as guest rhymer in, Torae. In the joint, Panormic, you find no shortage of boom bap, that is sure to ensnare hip hop fans off all walks of life.
