Detroit’s Finale links up with Camden stalwart, Fel Sweetenberg for a new project. One Light is the first release from the project, Two Kings, and I think we can anticipate something dope when the full length drops. This track is hitting like two emcees on a war march.
…I bet this shit feel like a whole lifetime worth of Mic Tyson uppercuts..
I have followed Epsilon Project for quite a while, but it has been a minutes since they have put out any new music. I was pleasantly surprised this week when I saw this new project from member Verb, MIDRANGE drop.
Prayer is my favorite cut from this project. I love the vocal sample and the production overall. The emcees each add a personal element to the track making this song something that will tap into listener’s consciousness.
I lifted this dope cut from Adam Bomb and Big Sproxx’s latest project, Live From Larstone. It’s just too nice not to share with you all. The production from Sproxx is sharp and soulful, the vocal loop he is using is what differentiates this song from being just ‘good’. Adam Bomb does an incredible job taking us through his questions for God and religion as a whole.
Really meaningful stuff from an all around dope project that I think heads should be checking for.
Estee Nack, Paranom, and Oblivious take you to the dark side over some production from Vinyl Villain and Jon Glass. If you are going to live in the world of these emcees, you had better be about it…no fronting’…mercy at a premium.
I hope this song makes it out for purchase…it’s worth the coin!
Man, you may not be aware of any of the artists on this track, but you would be hard pressed to find a smoother hip hop joint in 2017. It’s super-mellow and super-dope.
Sideways is a producer collaborative featuring the talents of Ghostnaut (Montreal) Dualib (Brazil). There is something very melodic about this piece right here, and while the production stands out, the emcees and singer are also considerably talented. The track features Coin Banks, Elodie Rama, and Mr. J Medeiros.
Here’s some real dopiness from Cashus King and Yamin Semali. I am not sure who produced it, but the production really moves and gets that head nodding while King and and Semali use their contrasting styles to offer insights on an assortment of different topics. The dynamic between the two artists is pure. They really play off of each other well. I REALLY hope to hear more from these artists.
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.
Blacastan and Stu Bangas are all but set to release their new album next week, The Uncanny Adventures Of Watson And Holmes. And this song definitely sets the tone for the release. Stu Bangas really has developed some sickness from behind the boards on this one. The bass line…guitar licks…with the drums is premier stuff. Blacastan delivers his bars like a hell hound. He’s got firey bars and owns this rhythm.
Can’t wait to see what’s on tap with this album.
Here’s an appropriately titled loosie from producer Giallo Point featuring emcees D Strong and Dro Pesci called, The Heat. And that’s exactly what this trio bring you on this cut. It’s pure and unadulterated fire. Giallo continues his run of lacing banger after banger for dope emcees. Strong and Pesci are laying heads to rest on this track…you all had your chance!
Some vintage feeling hip hop from producer IceRocks and comrades-of-the-mic Calamity Chris, Spit Gemz, and SicWitDaPen. The vibe definitely has a 1990s sound, and takes me back to when I first heard Jemini The Gifted One…add that’s a strong compliment. The emcees each bring a different type of ammo to the salvo but it all comes together. Calamity Chris has a very laid back deliver, Gemz always brings a ferocity, and SicWitDaPen closes with a bridge between the two styles.
IceRocks new album, Live From The Bunker is presumed to be around the corner!
