More music from M-Dot? Yes sir, please! Foreign is another dope cut from the impeccable album, EgO anD The EneMy. And no people, this craft is not as easy as it looks, even though M-Dot may make it look effortless. The man who is on a hot streak right now when it comes to beats, Jon Glass, stands responsible for the production.
Oh man a couple of my favorite emcees, Nutso and M-Dot link up over this KNOCKIN’ beat from Whatson. This production is off the Richter Scale. The drums hit with intensity and the samples are so on point they could draw blood. All of the emcees drop some true verbal insanity. The one emcee I was not super familiar with, Robb P, really impresses when rocking alongside accomplished emcees. There are lots of quotables to be had in under three minutes!
The Cycle is a single off of Whatson’s, album which has yet to receive a title but is guaranteed to smack.
IDE’s album, Breathe Easy, is a stalwart from 2016, and Nirvana is an acid trip from that album in the form of a video single. The music from Lucky Loopiano and Kelly Finnigan is trippy and abstract while IDE serves as the wordplay wizard.
I know I have mentioned this before, but I am going to make mention of it again. IDE’s flow and wordplay have become more and more advanced with every release and heads are starting to take notice.
I hope to hear more from Creative Juices soon.
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!
