I know who DJ Concept is. He’s been doing this for a long time and at a high level. But I was not familiar with Ghetto as an emcee, but I got familiar really quick. This is simply an ill combination. These beats with the lyrical artistry is nothing short of immaculate. And if you love this track (my favorite), you need to cop the full project, Ghetto Concepts. You will have no regrets. This is one of the best releases of 2022 up to this point.
Daniel Son is on a run (like a five year run) as he just dropped his full length solo, Bush Doctor, just a few weeks ago and now he links up with producer Michaelangelo for another project, 26th & Ocean, to keep the fans fiending. And he hasn’t lost a step in the least. Daniel Son sounds dope over any production but this really is a great fit.
Motivation music for cheffing over the stove
Eddie Kaine unleashes some visuals for the single, Imperial, from his recently released album, Wonderful World Of Kaino. This cut is all about an emcee rocking mics and doing life with supreme confidence over some soulful production from Beatnaut. Check the authenticity here, the album, and on an assortment of his other releases.
Featured above is a video for the single from Shabaam Sahdeeq & Nick Wiz’s album, Cabin Fever. Watch Ya Mouth, features U.G. and D.V. Alias Khryst and exhibits a chemistry that has been forged in a decades plus of making music together. The song shows that age is not relevant when it comes to making high quality hip hop. This song, if anything, puts a stamp on the fact that these artists have merely gotten better with time.
Madhattan and NV got a new album dropping, Consequences, on May 13th, and damn what a lead off single from this duo! I mean, Madhattan’s flow is just meaaaannnnnn. He delivers an unrelenting flow over this flute driven illness from NV. The result is a really great song that not only is a reflection of the talent, but also something that can get stuck in your head for weeks to come!
Producer Stu Bangas links up with Black Sheep frontman, and legend, Dres. Together, these guys have a new project coming out very soon entitle Sheep Stu. Not sure when it drops but it’s bound to reflect the flavor found in this joint right here. This joint is silky smooth, jazzy and again illustrates that talent doesn’t diminish over time.
NapsNDreds has a new album, Super Braff that just released a couple of days ago, that is bound to be flames. I am about ready to pick it up myself. The artist has gone under the radar a bit when considering his talent, because he’s been grinding hard over the last several years with dope projects in tow.
But you can tell from this cut, Skee Trip, that you should not be taking a holiday on this man’s time while he’s bodying beats. Speaking of production, I am a big fan of the harpsichord on this one.
New joint from the forthcoming album by Pete Twist, entitled Hans Gruber, and I can’t wait to get my hands on that project. For those that don’t know the name, Twist has been crafting bangers for a while most notably in his partnership with Born Unique. I love his body of work, and I am glad he has something dropping with his name on it.
This song with Wais P and Eto, is another example of Twist’s exceptional skill as a producer. It has that dark and ominous feel with the guitar strings giving it that extra touch. And the emcees use their talents almost as a menacing whisper over the track. Really love this song.
Rob Cave and Small Professor connect for some smooth story telling vibes with their new track, Respect Wildlife. It’s a dope narrative of coming up with little but appreciating alot and respecting the order of things and the surroundings. I am sure you will enjoy if….
Don’t choke on your hopes, and heed the advice, be humble in the jungle and respect the wildlife.
