King Magnetic – Nobody’s Safe (Video)

King Magnetic released a slew of singles over the course of the last couple of months, and now we get to see all of them assembled in the album produced by Tone Spliff.

Nobody’s Safe is the title track for the album, and is vintage Magnetic. as he is a bar bully when it comes to the wordplay and does so over some Tone Spliff production that will easily cause the head nod effect. Definitely check the latest from this pairing!

Ill Bill – Be Afraid! (ft. Conway The Machine & Pharoahe Monch) (Video)

Ill Bill gives us a scary musical selection with the release of his video, Be Afraid! featuring emcees Conway and Pharoahe Monch. These eclectic spitters each nail an ill sixteen into the proverbial coffin. The video is on some psychedelic, 50’s cartoon feel which gives the track a ‘fun’ feel if you will.

Check out Ill Bill’s new album, La Bella Medusa.

Single You Out: Darkim Be Allah x Endemic Emerald – God of the Universe (ft. Planet Asia)

Darkim Be Allah has been making hip hop music for a while but very sporadically so it’s great to hear that he has a complete album with Endemic Emerald coming out on November 6th! This track has that jazzy and smooth vibe to it which seems to suit Darkim Be Allah and guest emcee Planet Asia perfectly.

Certified Craftsmen (Propo’88 & Wildelux) – Hey! (Video)

This track is incredibly fresh! You have the combination of Wildelux and Propo’88 making some dope we can get in with as the Certified Craftsmen. And, Hey!, definitely has that well crafted sound about it. I love the depth and layers in the production with cascading sounds and concise scratching. Wildelux also has an authority about his flow that is concise and sharp over this track.

They have a new project coming out and I am excited to hear a complete project from the two.

Single You Out: Mayhem – To Me (ft​.​Weapon E​.​S​.​P & Vic Monroe)

New joint from Mayhem of EMS comes from his just recently released album with The SOULution, Singleton With A Pen. This track, To Me, has a soulful vibe, and lyrically it showcases diversity yet equal doses of talent with Weapon E.S.P. and Vic Monroe joining Mayhem on the mic.

Check out the album!

3 Melancholy Gypsys – The 3 (Video)

You haven’t studied hip hop well enough if you are not familiar with the appropriately titled Living Legends crew. In the late 90s and 2000s they were prevalent in a very prolific way with countless dope releases along the way. Some of the crew members continued to make music and others I am not so sure of…but now we see a re-emergence of the offshoot 3 Melancholy Gypsy’s (Eligh, Murs, and Scarub) and you know unequivocally that the talent remains undiminished.

We are once again graced with the presence of legends!

Single You Out: Chuck N Lock – Tomorrow Never Dies

The Famous Last Words project from Chuck N Lock has been out for about a month now, but this is my first time giving it a listen and I knew it was going to be good…but this is pretty damn incredible. At $30 a scoop I was a little incredulous, but thought I def could support the art. Glad I did. The music and sound in general is unique while still sounding familiar if that makes sense. The dexterity with words is unparalleled with their contemporaries.

And while Tomorrow Never Dies isn’t exactly my favorite track from the project, it’s still really damn good and illustrates that distinguishing sound. Check the project!

Rasheed Chappell & Buckwild – Black Owned (Video)

Rasheed Chappell and Buckwild have a project in the mix that is most anticipated and from the sound of this track you can obviously hear why. Chappell is now starting to hit a wider audience and people are catching on to just how talented this man is. Adding Buckwild’s highly acclaimed boom bap production to the mix means that this is a must-cop endeavor.

Sinners and Saints drops on November 20th
