Single You Out: Lee Ricks & BigBob – Life’s A Bitch (ft. LDontheCut)

a2275947907_10

This track is a couple weeks old (nearly) but it’s going to get a proper feature on here because I am really feeling this combination of Lee Ricks on the mic and BigBob on the boards.  Ricks articulates the travails of life and BigBob interweaves the iconic AZ song from the 1990s to perfection between bars.   LDontheCut providing the scratches.  Love this!

Single You Out: Him-Lo x Giallo Point – Ol Dirty Swordzman

a2679804170_10

Him-Lo of Da Buze Bruvaz links up with the acclaimed producer Giallo Point for this track that utilizes one of the most recognizable Ol’ Dirty Bastard samples from the Wu-Tang Clan’s first and classic album.  The aggressive vibe and lyricism displayed on the track do ample justice to the sample.

It’s a tough track from the forthcoming album, OJ Glovez.   The title and the artwork amuse me to no end by the way.  Should be dope!

Single You Out: Jay Royale – Roddy Piper (ft. Supreme Cerebral)

New single from Jay Royale rocking over a beat from Slumlord and with scratches from DJ Grazzhoppa.  You also have the shooter Supreme Cerebral dropping a sure shot sixteen bars.   The track has a very movie score vibe to it with the strings and sound effects and the emcees treat the track like they are a tag team ready to run down the competition.  Really dope track!

Single You Out: B Leafs – Reaganomics (ft. Elzhi, Ras Kass, M-Dot, and Large Professor)

190120-m-dot-640x480

I was reminded today when B Leafs’ new album, The Horizon,  dropped this morning that I had yet to post this incredibly dope single.   The talent level incorporated with the likes of Elzhi, Ras Kass, M-Dot, and Large Professor is going to be hard to surpass when it comes to lyrical firepower.

I am a little better than halfway through the whole project by the way and it’s solid!  But this the marquee moment thus far through my listen.

Single You Out: Awful P – Lies (prod. by Conflikt)

I feel like I have been waiting for this Awful P project for a year…maybe I have come to think of it?  But it’s tracks like these that just make you hunger for it’s release.   Every song from Awful P just knocks…

The beat from Conflikt impresses.  I love the altered vocal samples.  And Awful P has a lot of presence on the mic.  His voice and his lines just cut through the beat and hold the listener’s attention.

When The BoomBaptism drops, heads are going to take notice.

Single You Out: Recognize Ali x Ren Thomas x Ruste Juxx – Style

artworks-000465838284-p0ouok-t500x500

This track is a couple of weeks old, but I am going to share it anyway because it’s just too good to not be included on the site.  Tone Spliff laces our emcees with a high paced banger and chops it up proper while the trio of Recognize Ali, Ren Thomas, and Ruste Juxx all contribute their distinctive verbals to track…each with a different but dope ‘style’.

It’s a sureshot that’s dropping on a project due out later this year called, Renaissance.
