Who’s excited about this collaborative project from Apollo Brown and Planet Asia, Anchovies, dropping next Friday? I know I am. These two artists are at the top of their game right now. Brown gives us blessings in the subtlest of forms with a stripped down, yet impactful production. Asia CONSISTENTLY proves that he has one of the sharpest flows in the game without a let down.
In terms of interesting and well crafted lyricism, Taboo, is among the best. When I get word that he has some new music, it’s gotten to the point it’s an INSTANT cop. His entire 64 bars here is rewindable. So many quotables intermingled with an amazing flow. Stay tuned for more…
More music from M-Dot? Yes sir, please! Foreign is another dope cut from the impeccable album, EgO anD The EneMy. And no people, this craft is not as easy as it looks, even though M-Dot may make it look effortless. The man who is on a hot streak right now when it comes to beats, Jon Glass, stands responsible for the production.
Vinnie Paz lets loose another video from his solo project from last year, The Cornerstone Of The Corner Store. Vinnie is narrating on the evil than men do for the sake of the dollar and the control it has over people. The track also features a gritty hook from Eamon and production from C-Lance.
Hopefully you have already checked the album, if not, go check it out now.
New single up for Shaz Illyork to represent for his forthcoming album, Graff City. The production is low key and stripped down to a few basic components, allowing Illlyork, and guests Tools Beastly and Therman Munsin to spread some heavy hitting sixteens amongst the masses.
Album drops September 12th.
This is my favorite cut from Your Old Droog’s album, PACKS, which dropped earlier this year. I am a sucker for that ME and Indian vibe in the instrumentation. Droog and Heems definitely drop it heavy. I particularly like Heem’s animated flow…definitely has character.
Can I put you guys onto something dope? I waited for a minute to check this album because I had a lot on my plate, but VerbzBeats and Deploi’s project, The Fever, is thorough from start to finish. The San Diego producer and LA based emcee have a really good sound going on here that I think people are really going to enjoy it once the word gets moving a little more.
I encourage you guys to spread the word on this one, don’t let it go unnoticed. It really is too good to be slept on. I chose this smooth track featuring Martin Salazar because it typifies the sounds from the project and will definitely get stuck in your head!
Please drop some more music Natural Elements! We need more than just these teasers. Anthony Cruz, Swigga, and Agu still can drop illness with the likes of sickest emcees. We need some more of these kind of songs and a true LP to drop soon because these artists are simply too talented to drop this sporadic. Please gentlemen…put the hip hop world on notice…
This is the first single from the upcoming Apathy and O.C.’s forthcoming album, Perestroika which is due out next month. That’s pretty exciting news. This song (debuted by DotGotIt) is really dope. I love the horns, the sample, and the beat. And Ap and O.C. seem like a natural pairing, exchanging clever bars and tight rhyme schemes.
Here’s another single from Recognize Ali’s forthcoming album, Allah’s Favorite, featuring Chicago emcee Verbal Kent and the result is ill. Eyedee laces a stripped down production, yet one that certainly bangs. That production is escorted by scratches implanted by DJ TMB. Kent and Ali prove to be an imposing force on this track. I have high hopes and expectations for this project.
