Single You Out: Timbuktu x Ollie Teeba – Fire In Our System

I caught wind of this project from emcee Timbuktu and producer Ollie Teeba and it is pretty damn fresh and re-freshing. A Million Pound Note has a fun and playful vibe while staying deeply ingrained in the spirit of boom bap and extra crafty lyricism. I decided I would share my favorite track from the project. The best way I can describe this track is…a…journey. Enjoy!

Single You Out: Vorheez – Namaste

artworks-lWJQLyGeCnkeRE40-HSVFIA-t500x500

Vorheez sent this track to me a few weeks ago but I was in a Covid pandemic slumber so now it’s time to wake up and shine a light on this gem.   Philip Drummond laces a boom-bap, funk, heat rock , while DJ Theory chops up the sounds making this track all things proper.  Vorheez has a great flow and lyrical prowess to fall right in tandem with a voice that just stands out.

I hope we hear more from him soon!

Single You Out: Kut One – The Chosen One (ft. Recognize Ali)

This track from Kut One’s new project, Live Wires, is sheer and unadulterated fire.   The strings and symphonic sound build such an amazing intensity and it features one of my favorite emcees in Recognize Ali.   It’s a fire starter to be sure.

It’s my favorite track from the project but certainly not the only dope one.  The whole thing is insanely good.   It was honestly tough to pick a joint to feature so do yourself a favor and cop the whole thing!

Single You Out: Jamo Gang – Belushi & Akroyd

Holy shit!  This is super dope!   I am highly anticipating this album from Jamo Gang, Walk With Lions, even more so now!  The combination of El Gant, Ras Kass, and J57 seems like an unstoppable force and you and this cut is a prime example.  This track defines ferocity.   J57 puts together a head nodder that infuses a rock rhythm into some boom bap and Gant and Ras Kass put on a verbal demolition for all of us to hear.

Album drops on April 10th!

Single You Out: M-DOT – The Atonement (Prod. by Pete Rock)

I can’t just drop a few posts and ignore the combination of talent represented in M-Dot on the rhymes and the legendary Pete Rock on the production!   This song represents insane levels of skill on several tiers.    It’s intense and unrelenting and an unveiling of what is sure to be one of the best projects to drop this year in egO anD The eneMy 2: A Dissolute Paradise.     This is to serve notice, that the project is coming to fruition and you should keep your ears peeled!

Single You Out: Ca$ablanca x TITO – Assalamualaikum

EN8kIgHXsAAZrx-

New music from the hard working Ca$ablanca!  TITO hits you the piano early on and then the drums come on…but it’s the piano work that give it that ‘feel’ or special vibe.  We all know that Ca$a relishes every beat and puts this one to work perfectly, but TITO, who I am not all that familiar with, really illustrates a great mic presence as well.   This is just great music!   Enjoy!
