Single You Out: Gary Rue – Down (ft. Jon Buell, El Ay, and Tone Twist)

Gary Rue is definitely someone I check for all off the strength of his first two release.  He flies under the radar and definitely deserves more recognition for the skill he displays.  Here we have a dope record featuring El Ay, Jon Buell, and Tone Twist.   Production was procured by Lob Van Beathoven and the scratches by DJ Trickalone.     This is a fresh joint the sets the stage fro Rue’s upcoming, The Burgeoning Nihlist.

Single You Out: Greve – Handz Up (ft. Termanology x Ruste Juxx x Shabaam Sahdeeq x UG)

Here’s a gem I want to make sure that everyone hears.   Producer Greve leads an all-star cast of emcee with a beat that sounds like boom-bap meets the River Dance and the result is hype!   I love the use of the fiddle (?) loop.   That shit is fire when coupled with this beat and the scratching.   Emcees Termanology, Ruste Juxx, Shabaam Sahdeeq, and UG each rip strong sixteens to make a truly compelling track.

I suggest you check out the project, Eternal, as soon as possible.

Single You Out: Shabaam Sahdeeq x J57 – Steady Pace

Shabaam

Here’s another dope single that I missed out on a week and a half ago but I have to rep it because it’s dope music from impeccable artists.  Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 have a time-tested formula and deliver to your eardrums raw and unfettered.  I have been rocking with Sahdeeq from the beginning and there will be no stopping that support.  He is a legend and continues to deliver outstanding music.  He and J57 really represent all that is outstanding in hip hop and continue to deliver…at…a…steady…pace.

Precious Stones…due out soon!

Single You Out: Hemlock Ernst x Kenny Segal – Down

ERNST-SEGAL-DOWN

Hemlock Ernst and Kenny Segal are linking up for a project called Back At The House.  To be completely honest,  I wouldn’t know who Hemlock Ernst was previous to Mister’s album feature on Approaching Land from earlier this year, but I was really impressed…and then I saw and heard this cut and was even more so impressed.

It’s somber…intricate…and will transport you.

Single You Out: Apollo Brown – God Help Me (ft. Black Milk x Ketchphraze x DJ Los)

Nobody incorporates that soulful flavor into hip hop like Apollo Brown.  I love his sound.  As a matter of fact, I might make it Apollo Brown Day around the house and listen to his body of work…which is mounting.   This is coming of a recently announced album, entitled, Sincerely, Detroit. So you know where that is headed.  He leads off with a really dope cut featuring Black Milk and Ketchphraze.
