Cambatta – God Lived (Devil Dog) (Video)

I was just listening to Cambatta’s latest project the other day.   He’s an unheralded talent who possesses elite microphone prowess.  I hope that recognition will soon keep pace with his gifts.  This song is all about lyricism and writing skills and you won’t be disappointed in either.  As Cambatta says in his verse;  This is what happens when you starve a lion.

No doubt…lyrical Donnie Darko style will have you tripping out…

Single You Out: Career Crooks – Newlywed (ft. Dewey Bryan, MaLLy, and PremRock)

Career Crooks is Zilla Rocca and Small Professor and they brought along a few friends for this latest music journey.   Dewey Bryan, MaLLy, and PremRock all get busy alongside Rocca on the mic.

This cut has so much exceptional going on with it.  The track from Professor is funky yet understated which makes it the perfect canvas for these audio lessons.  The way the chorus is worked around the emcees verses makes this track have even more of an impact.  Each emcee shows unique prowess and styling yet compliment the other.

The new album, Good Luck With That, drops on Friday.  Are you down?

Single You Out: Tenacity x J57 x Deejay Element – Get Down (prod. by Exile)

I was just wondering what Tenacity was up to after listening to one of his fantastic albums the other day.    Well, now I know!  He’s rocking mics with J57 over a funky and fresh beat from Exile with scratches applied by Deejay Element.    It’s honestly amazing to me how remarkable Exile is behind the boards.   This track feels ‘stripped down’ but there is still so much going on.

Great music!

 

Alpha Faktion – System Shutdown (Video)

Oh lawd have mercy!   The hour is upon us and the new Alpha Faktion album, Creative Control, has a digital release date of June 2nd, and I can’t wait!   It’s going to be one of the dopest albums this year.   I mean just listen to this Marco Polo produced song, System Shutdown. It’s one of the hypes beats I have heard from Polo, and the Faction prove merciless with their flows.   They are raw, intense, and delivering a purity to hip hop that is sorely needed.

Single You Out: IDE – Mic Hog

Creative Juices and Alpha Faktion link up when IDE and DJ Enyoutee team up for this banger, entitled Mic Hog. Enyoutee brings in the guitar licks over the snapping drums and IDE show an ever evolving repetoire as an emcee. He is flipping some serious non-stop lyricism on this track and continues to really show how refined his craft as an emcee is evolving.

Be sure to check out Alpha Faktion’s new album, which I think is dropping soon.

Single You Out: Rook & Menace – Sly Stone

Here’s something new that I am really loving. The back and forth wordplay between Rook & Menace is not necessarily unique but it was done exceptionally well. The lyricism is on point as is the production. I am going to have to look these guys up to find out more about them. Because if their material is as good as this…we have another artist to look forward to seeing submissions from.
