UG’s forthcoming album, Portals, is my White Whale. I have been waiting for it forever and for the longest time, I thought it was never going to drop. I thought it was just going to be shelved. But now we have proof of life with the IDE produced single, The Mystic. On this track you get to hear UG flip a one of a kind style over a production that actually caters to the word…”mystic”.
Even greater news is that we have a release date for the new album. It’s dropping on October 21st. Make sure you notate that on your calendar.
Our friend M-Dot is back at it again narrating tales from his travels over a Soulslicers’ production. My reaction to the track? First, it’s really great to hear some Soulslicers’ beats. I have really missed their work over the past couple of years. And it really is a match made in heaven when M-Dot starts flexing his verbal muscles over their heat.
I can’t wait for M=Dot’s new album to drop along with affiliate Mayhem’s joint. Stay tuned for more EMS goodness!
New single from Slaine’s forthcoming EP, Slaine Is Dead, which is dropping on September 23rd. Pusher, details just that…the life of a neighborhood drug pusher. It’s a short but dope narrative.
Quite honestly this is one of the deepest songs I have come across in a very long time and it is executed to absolute perfection. There is an incredible amount of depth in Token’s story telling and lyricism. It’s one of the few times that I have had to take a deep breath after listening to a song or watching a video. Token narrates three stories, two of which are classmates, and one is his own.
Apparently he has a project called Eraser Shavings just around the corner.
This beat from Vic Grimes is just point blank, treacherous. I love how the guitar maneuvers through the drums. Daniel Son, Acetik, and SmooVth each put in quality work on the microphone making this song something memorable.
There is no word if this joint is destined for a particular project, but stay tuned!
Man, when is this project dropping? Shaz Illyork be dropping a steady dose of bangers on the hip hop community. RAST and Illyork deliver verbal artillery over a banging production off the hands of Strange Neighbor.
Wide Awake coming soon, but not soon enough for me.
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.
