Single You Out: Forbidden Dialect – Old School


It’s really hard to believe that the last time I featured Forbidden Dialect was back in 2011.  That would make them one of my initial submissions back when we were back in our infancy.  I recently received an email from one of the members asking me to check out their new project, Wi-Fi on the South Side.    I did  a couple of days ago, and this album they put together is fantastic.   Some great rhyme, super production, well incorporated samples and GREAT all around song making.    I am going to hit you off with the track Old School and then hit you with an album review soon.  Check it!  The album is free!!!!!


Single You Out: Team Thoro – Abundant Thoughts


This is a release that snuck up on me which reminds me I really need to get up on my game since I am a huge Team Thoro supporter and have been for years.  Lord Of Kingz is an eight track odyssey that features the heavy hitting lyricism of AbSoulJah, Halfabrick, and Spicco.

Abundant Thoughts is a nice intro to the project and hopefully I will be able to hit you all off with a full review in the coming weeks. If you like this track, I all but guarantee you are going to feel the album.  Production is coming from Barz4thehood.

Grime Lords – Violent Violins (ft. Born Unique) (Prod. by Pete Twist)

First off, Born Unique and producer Pete Twist ARE Grime Lords.  Secondly, I have heard several of their collaborations in the past and they ALWAYS create dope bangers that hit eardrums heavy and Violent Violins is no different.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg.  Unique and Twist are uniting for a Grime Lords album, that is said to be due out soon and is bound to be one of the toughest releases of the year with a slew of dope guest spots.   Stay tuned for that.

Single You Out: Apathy – Alien Weaponry


Apathy is delivering the first single from his forthcoming album, The Widow’s Son.  This banger, and it is a true banger, features Apathy unleashing salvo after salvo of bars stating his intention to keep delivering dope music to the masses.  If you thought it was over, you thought wrong.  Now you know. Production comes from the highly respected and talented Nottz.

Single You Out: Escapism – ZoomOut pt1 (feat. JadeGritty)


ZoomOutPt1 is just one of the many powerful sounds coming from Escapism’s (Taboo x Tab) new self-titled album that I believe is a must have.  The lyricism and the energy in the track makes the song feel like it is taking a casual ride in your brain while triggering those synapses.  It’s soulful intelligence forcing the listener into introspection.  Listen and be enlightened.  Then check this amazing album!

Single You Out: Jamo Gang – All Eyes on Us


It’s early, but this track from Jamo Gang (El Gant, Ras Kass, J57) could be one of the toughest tracks of 2018.  Good lawd!  That bass line, the scratching, the bars, all the way down to the additional vocals makes this joint a legitimate threat to anyone’s ears.  This song was so dope to the senses I almost suffered stigmata.

Evidence – 10,000 Hours (prod. by DJ Premier) (Video)

Evidence is back with his third single from his forthcoming album, Weather Or Not, which is dropping in a couple of weeks.  10,000 Hours doesn’t disappoint in the least.  How could it?  You’ve got Evidence’s trademark delivery, backed by a legend in DJ Premier’s production.

You can pre-order the album, everywhere so make sure you get on that.

Binary Star – The Last Supper Nova (Video)

One Be Lo showcases why he has been an elite emcee spanning well over a decade.  The way he integrates Bible books with athlete names and assortment of other recognizable entities is just damn amazing.  People’s pen game simply aren’t as clever as this.  There are very few writing on this kind of level.  Really brilliant.

I CAN NOT wait for the new Binary Star album, LightY ears Apart to drop.  If the songs are just half this dope, it’s going to be all the way remarkable.
