The Brown Bag AllStars are back accompanied by The Alkholiks’ Tash for their new cut, 11 Steps. The production is orchestrated by Kev Brown. Everything really comes together for this cut as it comes complete with a slick beat, fresh rhymes, and an assortment of debauchery.
I hope there is more in store from the camp. My record collection needs a boost.
This song is sharp. It’s got everything you need in a hip hop cut for 2017. The bars from Al-One, Illmac, and Theory Hazit are all primo quality. And the beat from Rey Holliday is pretty special in it’s own right. It’s got some soul, funk, and boom bap wrapped inside.
Al-One’s, Sharptongue, drops next week, and I am pretty sure it’s going to be special. Stay tuned.
Here’s a track from Local-MU12’s collective effort, Everyday People. The track features bars from Shabaam Sahdeeq and Punchline, underscored with production from The Manorail. Together they take on the Instagram era and those looking for instant fame in the game.
I was just wondering what Tenacity was up to after listening to one of his fantastic albums the other day. Well, now I know! He’s rocking mics with J57 over a funky and fresh beat from Exile with scratches applied by Deejay Element. It’s honestly amazing to me how remarkable Exile is behind the boards. This track feels ‘stripped down’ but there is still so much going on.
Creative Juices and Alpha Faktion link up when IDE and DJ Enyoutee team up for this banger, entitled Mic Hog. Enyoutee brings in the guitar licks over the snapping drums and IDE show an ever evolving repetoire as an emcee. He is flipping some serious non-stop lyricism on this track and continues to really show how refined his craft as an emcee is evolving.
Be sure to check out Alpha Faktion’s new album, which I think is dropping soon.
Donnie Darko lets you feel his animosity in sixteen bars over some classic darkness produced by DJ Bless. This is the duo at it’s very best. And when Apollo Valdez links up with the two, they become Pull The Fuckin Trigger.
Look out for the album…I hope it’s coming soon.
Jamo Gang (El Gant x Ras Kass) rip over a J57 banger flexing their lyrical stylings. This could easily be an anthem for all of us who endeavor to a higher level of hip hop. El Gant and Ras Kass are a potent duo. Ras Kass is a legend and one of the all time greatest wordsmiths to do it, and while El Gant might not have the same notoriety, he is not to be bested. He spits bars with an equal measure of tenacity and venom.
Look out for the album this summer! It’s going to be one to remember!
New video single off of Superior’s latest album, The Journey. And this video features none other than EMS cohorts, M-Dot and Revalation. The song, Earn It, is the perfect track for these guys to put a little perspective on the game. So many acts are just flash in the pans who have paid absolutely no dues. They expect just to show up and have it handed to them. EMS perfectly embodies the mentality that hard work and talent pay off.
Cop this album. Lots of good joints on here.
I am not sure about anything on this Koncept track other than the fact that it is dope. He’s taking us back to the school yard on this one and causing a hell of a lot of trouble. I am not sure who produced this joint as no credits are included, but whoever is responsible did a remarkable job.
Soul Khan is back in force with the backing of the Audible Doctor to bring you that BBAS flavor. The doctor lays a super soulful foundation for Soul Khan to build bar upon bar. Even though his music has been more sporadic over the course of the last couple of years, it is no less potent.
