Single You Out: Eastern Sunz – Welfare (ft. Rahim Thornhill)

Another dope album that I need to put you on to is this project from Portland’s Eastern Sunz, Fuel For A Fool’s Errand. It’s that intelligent and soulful hip hop, that not only incorporates boom bap flavor, but also great song making and that’s something that’s pretty rare in today’s day in age. So listen to Welfare, hear the soul…the funk…the cuts…and the lyricism and tell me it’s not remarkable hip hop. This album is phenomenal.

Single You Out: Theo3 – Nap Time

Theo3 is someone I have promoted for years and when we talked about artists who have been slept on, he is at the top of the list. This guy is an amazing talent. He makes the kind of music that I love. It’s boom bap and it’s intelligent. And on this track, Nap Time, you combine those things with some Biggie and Ghetto Boys samples, you’ve got something really amazing on your hands. Did I mention Theo3 produces this joint? All the more amazing.

Strong Minded is one of my favorite releases this year and you guys should hear it. After listening to this song…you will be craving the whole project.

Single You Out: Milano Constantine – Big Apple

Milano Constantine’s, Winston Wolf EP, has been out for over a month but I really don’t think it’s gotten the credit it so justly deserves. Constatine is a ‘professional’ spitter. I mean his rhyme game is incredibly polished and when he is presented with production that he receives here…you need to share the exquisite results so on the strength of this cut…check the project!

BP – Gunsmoke (ft. RJ Payne x E Class) (Video)

This song has a lot of bite behind it! This is my favorite track from BP’s latest EP, The Supreme Seven. This beat from BP knocks doors off hinges. I love the the keys being pushed here along with the snapping drums. And damn…RJ Payne and E Class annihilate the production. These are some insanely tough bars. Probably will be one of my favorite tracks from the year when it’s all said and done. I feel it that much.

The Bad Seed & Reckonize Real – 7 Seas (Video)

Bad Seed and Reckonize Real dropped their collaborative release, The Smoke EP, not that long ago, and this song illustrates the intensity that you will both feel from the emcee and the producer. Damn. This is a song that takes no shorts…at all.

It should not go unnoticed that over the course of the last couple of years Bad Seed has really upped the octane in putting out dope project after dope project…we see you working!

Daniel Son x DJ Duke x DJ Low Cut – Long Season (Prod Dj Low Cut) (Video)

New collaborative project, Season 7, from Toronto based rhyme slinger, Daniel Son, and French producers DJ Duke and DJ Low Cut. And if you are familiar with just ONE of these artists, you know this project is going to knock. I am well versed in all three, and so copping the project was a no brainer.

Right now, there is few hotter than Daniel Son and he continues on his roll working in the sounds of the boom bap from Duke and Low Cut. So check the cut and the cinematics, then purchase the album!

DJ Enyoutee & Starvin B – Something Like This (Video)

Off of the new DJ Enyoutee and Starvin B project, Code Of Ethics, which is out now! Starvin B is a highly underrated artist in my estimation. He is a top flight emcee and has an extensive discography to prove that exact point! Check out the project and respect one of the best on the mic! Screwaholic on the beat.

Supreme Cerebral – Magnum Opus (Video)

Supreme Cerebral is a stalwart in hip hop these days. I have been privy to witness his ascension through writing the blog over the years. Each album/project sounds more refined than the last while still keeping that raw element and energy that he has ALWAYS brought to the table. This new single, Magnum Opus, has that jazzy element produced by Clypto, and with exceptional deftness, Cerebral shows off his lyrical dexterity.

Loose Change is coming soon!
