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.
Big Turks is comprised of Rome Streetz, Lord Juco, and Jamal Gasol and they unleash what could be a summertime anthem with their new joint, Turkish Delight. The rhythm and the rhymes will have you in a trance if you are not careful. As an added bonus you have the venerable rhyme spitta’ Planet Asia there to set it off with an impeccable verse.
There is a BIG project in the works for this tandem, so be on the lookout for something fantastic in the near future.
Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 have been cooking in the lab and this is the second single from their upcoming project which you know will be flames. We have a veteran emcee who has been making contributions to hip hop at a phenomenal clip and getting better as the year go by, coupled with a producer who ONLY knows how to put out a premium product. For this track, Razor Sharp Vernacular, they solicit both coasts by grabbing sixteens from Born Unique and TriState.
Some new music from John Creasy, and we are DEFINITELY feeling his new project, Teflon. The music/production from Ol Man 80zz at times hits hypnotizing levels and that’s no more evident on the track we are featuring, Customers. Creasy keeps his delivery and rhymes raw and over this beat that just will leave you wanting more. That’s a good thing because the whole EP is on this level. Enjoy!
Whenever Taboo drops something I am paying certain attention. When he gets introspective I pay extra CAREFUL attention. He doesn’t release as much music as I would like but when he does it’s always a gem. I love this track. So many great lines to wrap your mind around.
Supastition is back!!! And he’s back showcasing both his lyrical talent and his skills behind the board. He’s a Top 5 emcee in my mind. He’s clever, has a great flow, brings it with emotion, and he’s extremely relatable. Sacrifice is his new EP and it’s dropping on July 26th so stand prepared.

Jamil Honesty has a new single featuring Slumlord called 7 Crowns. And the song is laden in laid back aggressiveness. The production seems very unassuming, but then hits you with some nice subtleties as in a well placed vocal sample and a scratched in Nas hook. Honesty constantly flexes his way with words which gives this song that razor’s edge.
Also, if you have not checked his album out from late last year, Martyr Musik, that’s a MUST listen as well!
Little Vic has a new dope single out that you are all going to want to hear. He keeps is consistently fresh, this time on both the mic and behind the boards. This may be one of my favorite productions from him and of course, his penchant for flipping the English language in rhyme is on display just as brilliant as ever. Enjoy!
