This is a little bit of repost from a 2017 drop I did. I just saw it up on bandcamp again and thought it was worth resharing. One of the illest duos to never to it ENOUGH! Blak Flag and Sherm Larock kill it every time. There are no weaknesses found in their music. It just hard-bodied hip hop
Napoleon Da Legend is another artist who puts out a consistent flow of dope music, and I really like the creativity that he puts into his latest single, Building Politics. Over a DJ Dister piano laced production, NDL navigates the trials and tribulations of living and making music in an apartment complex. I am sure lots of listeners can relate to this dopeness!
Please stop sleeping on these two! Terror Van Poo and Vinny Idol are cooking up some amazing music and people need to recognize the skill level that’s being put on display here. Idol laces what seems like a sample from Bollywood that is just sick, and Van Poo’s words slice through the competition. Really a dope song!
New single out for producers, The Quarter Inch Kings and emcee, Zagnif Nori. These guys have collaborated on more than just a few cuts and have really good chemistry between them. Check out their latest single, Rise To The Top, which incorporates a little bit of everything. It has some bravado and social commentary over some snapping drums
Lord Juco dropped s short EP before the new year entitled, Shadows 3, which is produced by Bohemia Lynch. Anything Juco presses up, we are going to share. He has such a unique and relaxed flow that is easily distinguishable from his contemporaries. Check out this quick hitter intro to get a taste of the project. It’s currently available for any contribution.
Chuck N Lock has been a mainstay on the site for a couple of years now. And now they have a ‘Name Your Own Price’ (Centrallia) album up on Bandcamp and I suggest you pick that up and contribute to the cause. These guys are too talented to fly under your radar. This my friends is the very definition of a win!
One of my most popular posts in the decade and a half that I have been doing this blog is the interview I did with Memphis Reigns. He had such a cult following that people constantly check for him. It makes me quite proud to have been able to continue to share and showcase his talent because he is STILL making great hip hop music!
He has a recent release on Bandcamp called, The Arcade Avengers, where he uses what seems to be like old Atari sounds and uses it as the crux for this project. It’s really dope. And even though I wish the vocals were turned up a little bit on this track…Lightspeed, featuring Hypoetical is my favorite!
Born Allah links up with Rakaa for his single, Jabril (Let The Horns Blow). And the results are powerful. Zpu-Zilla laces those heavenly horns and lets the funk go in epic fashion, while these two west coast legends let us relish in the talent, each dropping appropriately ill bars.
This is from his project, Analog Baby, that is due out on January 7th.
Cousin Feo and Lord Juco get it moving again over some production from highly acclaimed beatsmith, Big Ghost LTD. And this single is billed as advertised, same dope results that you get whenever these emcees link up, with the exception that you have the genius of Big Ghost behind the boards. When you purchase this joint you get the original tracks and a remix for each. All of them equally dope. Check this out!
