Single You Out: EMS – The Spittin’ Dead (Produced By Soul Infected)

The EMS ensemble gather together to spit over an adaptation of The Walking Dead’s television theme song.  And if any unit could pull off something like this, I trust non other than EMS.  They have diverse enough lyrical styles to keep the track bouncing and entertaining.

This track serves as Revalation’s second single for his forthcoming EP, Emergency Broadcast.

Termanology – Depths of Hell (ft. Slaine & Artisin) (Video)

Here comes another dope single given the video touch from Termanology’s latest album, Shut Up And Rap, produced by Billy Loman.  This track is all about riding in the darkness with the depths of your depravity.  Slaine and Artisin each join Term in dropping rhymes from the abyss.  Check the album if you have not already.

Illmaculate & OnlyOne – GATTACA (Official Music Video) feat. J-Rome

OnlyOne and Illmaculate are known for making great music but this cut is among the most premium.   This is just some really good music period.   Chase Moore continues the string of flawless production with this concoction and J-Rome blesses the hook to complete the effect.  Meanwhile the two emcees drop incessantly dope lyricism that will at moment leave you a little slack jawed.

This is just a pre-emptive strike of what’s to come when they drop their album this summer, Only & Ill.

Worth Revisiting: PremRock – Juliet Has Survived

You know there is so much music being cranked out on a daily basis that I am going to take a step back and appreciate some of my favorite projects from years passed.  And PremRock’s 2014 album, A Clean, Well-Lighted Place, is an album that I constantly find myself coming back to.   He is just such a distinctive emcee in the way he approaches his writing and music in general.  He taps on emotion and borders on the abstract at times, which keeps the listener engaged in ways other artists simply aren’t capable of.    There are many great tracks on this album, but the one I want you to latch onto for the moment is Juliet Has Survived.

As always, if you enjoy the track, please empty a few coffers into the man’s hand and purchase his art.

 

King RA & Bunty Beats – No Copy (Video)

The title of King Ra and Bunty Beats’ album, Back To The Essence, really puts this track into perspective.   The Jersey emcee and British producer reclaim that vintage hip hop sound with tracks like these and others that abound on the full length project.   They put the ‘skinny jean culture’ and the ‘hipster movement’ on blast by taking yesterday’s boom-bap and giving it a fresh twist.   Giving you the authentic…No Copy.

Make sure you check and cop the project if you are liking what you hear!

Single You Out: Rhythm Writers – Line In The Sand (prod. by Sutter Kain)

NSD’s, Rhythm Writers link up yet again with DJ Bless/Sutter Kain to create another win in terms of their latest single, Line In The Sand.   The Duo of Mr. Crowley and Awax seem extremely focused on their rhyme skills and ability to make music over an almost, melancholy production from DJ Bless.

Every single I have heard from these guys has been dope, so I hope there is a project coming down the pipe.

Single You Out: Ren Thomas – Hero

This track is tangible truth that the art of story telling is not dead in hip hop.  Ren Thomas narrates a pretty intricate detail of a woman who is trying to get out of a bad situation.   Some pretty amazing visuals are depicted through Thomas’ bars and I encourage you to check them out.  I guess this song is actually circa mid 2014 but I just caught wind of it on the bandcamp site.

This song comes off of Ren Thomas’ project,  Who The Fuck Is Ren Thomas?
