Oh good gawd this joint is a heat rock and a half. Skinny Bonez Tha Godfather and Words team up with Mickey Diamond and Dro Pesci for music to murk to. Bangkok Bar Brawls as a title sounds like the perfect reflection for the music itself. Each emcee has the gravel to lace som kill shots in their respective sixteens. This is a combo that belongs together on a track.
Single You Out: Stu Bangas & Recognize Ali – Pulverized (ft. Lord Goat)
Stu Bangas and Recognize Ali are back at it for 2023 accompanied by Lord Goat for their first single Pulverized. This is a precursor for the new album Guerilla Dynasty 2. And this song is nasty. Bangas has a subtle, yet devious hand when it comes to the beat and string sample on this track. And Recognize Ali and Lord Goat exchange verbal blood baths making this the first sinister track of the year.
Single You Out: Foreign Legion – Liven It Up
Foreign Legion is back with a new uptempo, Intr0beatz produced single, Liven It Up. Prozak Turner and Marc Stretch each drop a verse to the blood pumping here. And it’s always good to hear fun
Single You Out: Judge The Disciple – Dynamite Candles
New music from Judge The Disciple who I first heard last year, and definitely feeling his introspective style mingled with his intricate word play. This dope track is coming off of his recently released project, Espresso Depresso produced by CloaqxDagger.
….the whole world’s a stage until the actor breaks method….
Single You Out: Ullnevano – Raekwon’s Table
Yeah, I’ve been sleeping on the music of Ullnevano, and every once and a while I need to be reminded how dope an artist is. And here is that reminder I am sharing with you all. Raekwon’s Table, is just the track to showcase Ullnevano’s dexterity on the mic over the heavy drums of God Sense Beats. Showing you that only a few are allowed to break bread at the table of legends.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. This single, while ever so dope, isn’t even my favorite track off the album, The Ghost Of Reggie Lewis, which you should check out now!
Single You Out: Ugly Tony – You Already (ft. The Absouljah x Halfabrick)
Man, this truly is a Christmas gift! Producer Ugly Tony links up with two of my favorite artists of all time that have been featured on this blog. The Absouljah and Halfabrick link up in what feels like forever to show that they can still bring that lyrical fire over some inspired production from Tony.
Single You Out: Ransom x V Don – Short Notice (ft. Lloyd Banks)
V Don linking up with Ransom seems like a union of superpowers and it appears as though they have a new project dropping soon dopely titled, Chaos Is My Ladder. This single, Short Notice, is putting the listener on notice that something wicked this way comes. I think Ransom’s thoughtful provocation plays extremely way with V Don’s pensive soundscapes. This is going to be great! Guest bars provided by Lloyd Banks.
Single You Out: WateRR – Nobody Gone Stop Me
Nobody Gone Stop Me is a dope new single from the uber talented emcee, WateRR. This beat from DJ Phonz is really dope. That string sample is intoxicating. I love the uptempo vibe and WateRR takes on the beat effortlessly with his usual gusto as one of the most distinctive talents in the game. This is another sure shot!
Single You Out: Terror Van Poo x Vinny Idol – 12 Shots (ft. Leanah Cane)
Terror Van Pooh and Vinny Idol are back at it again, but really did they ever slow down? Emcee, Leanah Cane, also drops a quick sixteen over this frenetically paced production. The production actually gives the sense that verbal shots are being fired from all angles. Another dope track continues a track record where that has just become the expectation.
Single You Out: Rah Scrilla – Hustla (ft. Daniel Son)
Rah Scrilla links up with emcee’s emcee, Daniel Son, for his Profound79 produced single, Hustla. And this joint is glorious. The classical sample proves a powerful backdrop for this hustler’s anthem. Dope song.
