Another installment of Taboo’s video series with Hip Hop Dependency. This time Taboo goes into some of his personal favorites when it comes to looking back at some of his favorite songs and verses. And we just happen to agree with him whole heartedly.
Pawz One & Robin Da Landlord lace us with the visuals for the title track to their new project which dropped last Friday. The project is dope in it’s entirety, and as a matter of fact I am working on a review for it, because of how much I enjoy it.
Listen to the drums Robin Da Landlord uses for the backbone of the track? If your head is not snapping back and forth, I am not sure what to tell you. This track is the embodiment of what hip hop should be. And the dream here, truly is hip hop articulated in it’s purest form…and that’s what happened on their latest effort.
The Red Giants (Jermiside and Brickbeats) just released a new EP entitled The Shade, and Dick Dasterdly just happens to be my favorite cut from the project. You’ve got superior lyricism and flow from Jermiside and I am loving how Brickbeats utilized the guitar in the production. It’s subtlely fantastic.
John Jigg$ continues his streak of bangers, this time rocking’ the club. This song has potential night life anthem written all over it, and he does it without catering to a pop element which I love.
Lord Juco has been dropping a steady stream of dope EPs over the course of the last year and a half. His new one is entitled, Jade, and this cut with Codenine and Daniel Son is arguable the best off a really good project. This beat from Four Limbs is simply vicious. You will all really enjoy this joint.
Serge Severe is back at it dropping new music, this time over some snapping drums from Gen.Erik. Severe dropped a series of EPs a few years ago and I rocked with ALL of them. We featured almost all of his material. And it sounds like he’s about ready to unleash a new album in the coming months, and best believe we will be down.
Gary Rue drops another dope single. Not sure if this one is destined for his new project, but it’s a very personal cut and done from the heart. We here at HHD appreciate cuts that delve from personal experience, along with Rue’s undeniable talent.
Here’s some new music from Blame One produced by Veks entitled Frontin’ Foes. The joint’s got a smooth vibe, and Blame One flows so effortlessly over the production. It’s laid back goodness, with nuggets of wisdom, and keen insight, mingled throughout.
I have always really liked Blame One. His art speaks to me and thankfully a new album is seemingly on the way soon.
More heat from Nowaah The Flood and Ca$ablanca with production courtesy of The Kurse. The emcees ride this smooth guitar laden track, but deliver a series of tough bars regardless of the tempo. Really feeling what they are bringing to hip hop these days.
Who possibly isn’t going to like this joint here? Nomadic channels the Golden Era of hip and drops more than just a little gem here. He has crazy flow and lyricism and when you combine this beat which is reminiscent of Pete Rock, you have audio gold.
I can tell from listening to just half of his album, The Journey, that Nomadic is a super talented artist and someone we should be watching out for in the future. But for now, enjoy his present endeavors.
Left For Dead is the re-emergence of west coast emcee and artist, Capitol I-Man. Hip Hop heads are going to remember Capitol I-Man as part of the group The Mexakinz. And what we find here with this new song, Buzzard, is that even though it’s been a long time between projects, his lyricism remains sharp. It’s a party, and don’t you dare be a buzz kill.
New project, Company Head Change, is available as both physical and digital.
