Single You Out: Gary Rue – Down (ft. Jon Buell, El Ay, and Tone Twist)

Gary Rue is definitely someone I check for all off the strength of his first two release.  He flies under the radar and definitely deserves more recognition for the skill he displays.  Here we have a dope record featuring El Ay, Jon Buell, and Tone Twist.   Production was procured by Lob Van Beathoven and the scratches by DJ Trickalone.     This is a fresh joint the sets the stage fro Rue’s upcoming, The Burgeoning Nihlist.

Shabaam Sahdeeq & J57 – Steady Pace (Video)

Banger brought to visual life by Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 off of their forthcoming project, Precious Stones.  This track is one of those that just represent hip hop to the fullest.   The fresh rhymes from Sahdeeq…the production from J57…and then the scratches by Chinch33 leave a cumulative impression on the masses.   Be prepared for something special when the project drops.

Joell Ortiz – Anxiety (Video)

When artist’s touch on the vulnerable side of humanity with their music it does something special for the listener.  It creates an instant bridge between the artist and the fan.  I can see this happening over and over again with this track, Anxiety, from Joell Ortiz.   He relays what it is like to live life in a state of constant apprehension and all the signs and feelings it incorporates. He also reflects on how dismissive people can be of the topic.

This track is one of the strongest of the year in my estimation as Nottz does his usual remarkable when melding samples, drums, and instrumentation.

Powerful.

Planet Asia & Milano Constantine – Milano Medallions (Video)

We have a couple of the illest emcees, each representing one side of the continent. Certified legends in Planet Asia representing the west coast, and Milano Constatine repping the east coast.   And together they bring out the best of hip hop from the perspective of any coastline.  Brought to you by DJ Enyoutee, Asia and Constatine each rep their unique styles to the fullest over the track Milano Medallions.

New EP do out on November 8th, and I have my pre-order in!
