Sometimes I just get lucky and find some new dopeness without even trying very hard. This is the case of the Hellzwind Presents…
This whole project is worth checking but I am approaching you with my favorite track from the project: Three Way Murder. The track features verses from Hibernation, Darkstar, and Spectah and production from Conflikt.
…A million dollar mean mug I’ll wear until I die…
It’s been a few minutes since I featured music from Ruslan, so the time is now right to display some dope new visuals for an equally dope song. This is a cut from the forthcoming album, Americana.
Blak Flag and his team are all over the HHD radar. This emcee is one of the dopest around with hard lyricism backed by Sherm LaRock’s neck-snapping drums that plays like the Pied Piper with that flute loop. Just leading heads down that boom bap path. I have heard near 20 cuts that involve Flag and they were all dope. I hope you are all paying attention.
On this track we got Flag teaming up with Marvalyss to flip another banger from Larock. Are you getting the picture yet? The two emcees really sound good together. Their voices and their lyrical skill are very much on par with each other so the song is consistent.
Check for Underdog Religion!
Oscar Nominee serves as the second and most recent single from Illmaculate’s upcoming EP, Still Standing. A dope song that features production from long time collaborator, Chase Moore.
“I would probably have an Oscar for acting like gave a fuck… I am sorry but no apologies…”
Excuses was of course the first single from the same EP. The beat from Moore on this joint is a creeper. It just embeds itself in your head and stalks the mind. Illmaculate, meanwhile, writes and executes a couple of dope verses. Guest, Bobby Bucher, tackles a third verse that make me reminiscent of Devin The Dude in cadence and flow.

While we all eagerly anticipate M-Dot’s album, Ego and The Enemy, he has released a teaser project once again showing the assortment and diversity of talent. This is old hat for us here at Hip Hop Dependency, but I am sure there are more than just a few of you who will appreciate these dope eight tracks.
You can see the company he keeps on some of these tracks and let me assure you, he was never out shined on any of these cuts. I hope you all can appreciate that talent as much as we do.
Stay tuned for more information on the album!
Shabaam Sahdeeq is back with another single, this time produced by DJ Doom. And what other than complete dope you would you expect from Sahdeeq? He rides the piano infused boom bap from Doom to the fullest extent, setting us up for his next project, Tmeless: of the collection. That’s set to drop early next year.
New video from the new album, Furious Styles. Reef The Lost Cauze and Bear One release the video single directed by another ill artist, Skrewtape.
Reef’s music has proved to be timeless. He stays dropping gems.
“…if you’ve beat everyone already, who are you supposed to fight?”
Always bringing that raw boom bap…with dope lyricism.
Oh you want some bars? Blank Face has got some bars for you. SoulNewYork provides some production that lies stealthy in the background while the emcee puts in some serious work on the mic. It’s definitely that grimy, yet intelligent east coast boom bap that you need for those ear drums.
Always good to hear some legitimate fresh talent!
A new remix out for the cut Soap Opera from Sareem Poems and Ozay Moore. the production comes courtesy of Soulseize. The artists are putting a poetic twist on a deteriorating social situation. As certain members of the police appear ever more at odds with the Black Community, it’s songs like this that give us that lend perspective to time and place.
Abyss brings us an uptempo single that features bars from family favorite M-Dot, production from C-Lance, and vocal stylings from Aisling Peartree. The song is fire and bound to bring life to your evening. Get up and get something!
