John Jigg$ and producer BP have one of the best EP’s of 2021 on their hands with the recent release of The Madness. And here we have the video single of the title track featuring, A-F-R-O. Every track on this album knocks and is consistent with what you hear here with the single. This track is fun, maniacal, sophisticated, and lyrically stacked. I also really love the neon visuals. Very well done all around.
El Prez and Professor H have an INCREDIBLY fresh project out now, Angels With Dirty Faces. The whole things is soulful and has such a smooth vibe to it. And when there are so many projects hitting so heavy (which is great…don’t get me wrong) it’s nice to hear something that you can simply vibe to. Yeah….this music is a cleansing experience! And, Get Up, features the legend….DJ Rhettmatic…none of you can front on this!
Nef’s producer album, Tabula Rasa, drops on on April 2nd. It is loaded quite heavily with some of hip hop’s illest lyricists. I already got my pre-order in based on the line up and the dopeness you hear on this track featuring Lil Fame and Termanology. There’s so much good happening in this track with guitar samples, the horns, and just the energy that accompanies the emcees here. Can’t wait for the project.
This track has been out for a while, but I simply have to post it. Better late than never and this head simply has to be recognized. Spit Gemz and Eff Yoo combine talents to form Rikers Island Boxing School. And these guys have a vicious spit game that they are bringing to the future on this track, Rifle Experts. They are surveying the post-apocalyptic landscape of Queens in 2099. And they visit courtesy of the production of Project Porter. This is a dope track that signals a dope project is on it’s way.
I’ve actually been waiting for Def3 to make a new album, and it looks like I am going to get my wish, on June 4th, when Weddings and Funerals drops. But it gets better as he has producer Late Night Radio back behind the boards. Their album, Small World, is something that I try and listen to as much as possible. There are so many great cuts off of that project. It is my hope that we have great continuity from that project to this one. The pairing make original, funky, fun, and at times introspective music. And I think we are off to a great start here. This one has some very unique musical texture. So if you enjoy hip hop that steps outside the usual and customary…this is for you!
The prolific and timeless JMT frontman, Vinnie Paz, has yet another project on the way, seemingly adding to his mounting musical legacy. Burn Everything That Bears Your Name is the title of the album, and that is dropping on April 23rd. For this particular track, Paz, joins forces with producer extraordinaire, Stu Bangas. And they cook up a high energy joint that is sure to appease fans. Enjoy and mark the date!
Daniel Son and Cuns linked up for a new EP, and this joint can be found in the line up. Daniel Son delivers a fire sixteen over this dope production that build from Karate Kid movie samples into controlled burn. These artists never disappoint, and they are not bound to start now. Check out the project, Dojo.
M-Dot gets a little crazy over this C-Lance beat, and too me it sounds like he’s having a lot of fun going maniacal. He sounds as sharp as ever flipping on the off-kilter tip. He enjoys playing with razor sharp object…bars my friends….bars.
Be on the lookout for more material throughout the year. This man is relentless.
