King Magnetic is one of my favorite emcees. Period. As an artist, he delivers time and time again and never spit anything less than sickly. You put him over a DJ Low Cut production, with Nix’on on the cuts, you have a flawless victory.
If you enjoy this jawn, then I suggest you pick up Low Cut’s new album, Dead End.
Mr. Rose laces a dusty, yet jazzy joint for Estee Nack and Recognize Ali to spit on. It’s a laid that back track that also grabs you by the throat if that makes sense. Heavy on bars, yet easy on the ears.
You can find this track on Estee Nack’s new project, #Minimansiondust…. Unfortunately it is only available for streaming now and not for purchase. I hope that changes soon.
Single from Recognize Ali and producer Giallo Point. This is a dope cut. I love the strings Point uses for his production, but that should come as no surprise. His stock has been on the rise over the course of the last couple of years. He is steadily delivering bangers. And when we talk about consistency, you have to give Ali props. Everything he has put out in the last coupe of years has been strong.
New album, Back 2 Mecca, is in the works and I hope we will have it sooner rather than later.
Zilla Rocca and Small Professor are back at it as the group Career Crooks. Rocca promised some new music from the camp this year and here we are. I am much obliged to share. Props for the Mike Miller line.
The album drops May 19th and you should be prepared for that. The camp always keeps it interesting and fresh.
This is another single from Endemic Emerald and Skanks’ forthcoming album, Rapsploitation. I love the static and pop in the production with that lingering piano loop from Endemic. Skanks adds the perfect verbal punch needed to the track. And of course dopeness loves company, so Rim and Shatike, also show capable of serving up some certified illness.
The album is due out on May 30th.
Donnie Darko lets you feel his animosity in sixteen bars over some classic darkness produced by DJ Bless. This is the duo at it’s very best. And when Apollo Valdez links up with the two, they become Pull The Fuckin Trigger.
Look out for the album…I hope it’s coming soon.
Merkules dropped his new album today, Trust Your Gut, and Conor Mcgregor is a cut off of that very album. Merkules drops some rapid fire intensity in some swift bars over an equally amped Stuey Kubrick production. I am definitely going to check out the album.
Jamo Gang (El Gant x Ras Kass) rip over a J57 banger flexing their lyrical stylings. This could easily be an anthem for all of us who endeavor to a higher level of hip hop. El Gant and Ras Kass are a potent duo. Ras Kass is a legend and one of the all time greatest wordsmiths to do it, and while El Gant might not have the same notoriety, he is not to be bested. He spits bars with an equal measure of tenacity and venom.
Look out for the album this summer! It’s going to be one to remember!
M-Dot drops a video for one of my favorite tracks off of egO anD The eneMy. Reliant is a very vivid look into the eyes and mentality of an alcoholic. Yet another example of the dexterity M-Dot possesses as he narrates tales of addiction. Whatson on the production.
I have yet to see anyone blog about this release, but how could you miss out on some Psycho Les production with Theo3 spitting bars?
I am not sure if you guys remember, but in 2014 Theo3, had an impeccable EP called Enticement. There was production from The Audible Doctor, SCAM, and none other than Psycho Les on that joint.
The Double Life EP builds off of that arrangement. It’s not big on length, however, it is strong in potency. Fresh rhymes and dope production are highly concentrated in these three tracks and worth the meager $3 it will take to purchase them.
