Please stop sleeping on these two! Terror Van Poo and Vinny Idol are cooking up some amazing music and people need to recognize the skill level that’s being put on display here. Idol laces what seems like a sample from Bollywood that is just sick, and Van Poo’s words slice through the competition. Really a dope song!

Days Are All The Same is my favorite M-Dot track…period. This track resonated with me when it dropped four years ago. It hit me again when M-Dot released an animated video for the joint. And this time you get a new video re-rendering of the same dope music. This is one of those joints where everything just comes together…the meaning…the lyrics…the flow…and the superlative production from Hi-Tek. I love this joint.
A dope cut from Jamal Gasol’s project, The Ghost Of Fritz. It’s a smooth joint citing the times he was doubted, overlooked, or people attempted to hold him back. In spite, Gasol has been consistent in dropping dope music over the course of the years. Definitely a pillar in the independent hip hop scene.
New single out for producers, The Quarter Inch Kings and emcee, Zagnif Nori. These guys have collaborated on more than just a few cuts and have really good chemistry between them. Check out their latest single, Rise To The Top, which incorporates a little bit of everything. It has some bravado and social commentary over some snapping drums
Lord Juco dropped s short EP before the new year entitled, Shadows 3, which is produced by Bohemia Lynch. Anything Juco presses up, we are going to share. He has such a unique and relaxed flow that is easily distinguishable from his contemporaries. Check out this quick hitter intro to get a taste of the project. It’s currently available for any contribution.
I had no idea Chino XL had anything new in the works but he got together producer Balt Getty and crafted more greatness on top of an already stellar career. When it comes to ‘genius’ on the mic, Chino XL is unparalleled. Nobody constructs intricate lyricism like Chino. He refuses to dumb it down, and forces the listener to elevate their game. The whole, Chino vs. Balt, is impeccable! It certainly has a a throwback boom bap appeal, and that’s very indicative of the course of the EP.
Trust me…you are going to LOVE this!
Prolific? You want prolific…I give you Planet Asia. You would be hard pressed to find someone who has a better discography than him…ever….period. And he is still producing some of his finest work to date. Dirty Diggs production is an instant win and I like how they used the sample to give it a Buddhist chant feel on the chorus. And don’t take Asia’s zen as weakness, he’s always a deadly shooter.
Off the album, Bodhidharma
Skanks can go toe to toe with ANY emcee in the game currently! His bars are tough as nails but have this intricate quality that sounds anything but basic. I mean, the way he launches and finishes that Covid line is verified proof of lyrical talent. This is also an artist that I feel just keeps getting better and better. He invites another verified wordsmith in RIM to share the limelight and he too knows how to spit some viciousness. The Last Composer does a beautiful job re-working a sample a last heard Marco Polo use many years ago. The cascading piano and the drums with that sample sound like perfection.
Definitely check out out the full length, Out Of Nowhere, now. Every song bangs just as hard as this one. You don’t want to miss out.
