Skanks the Rap Martyr – Peter Paid Paul (ft. Chris Crown & P. General (Video)

Skanks the Rap Martyr is one of my favorite emcees, simply put. The bars and the flow are just ice cold. He’s a one-of-a-kind talent.

You look like the type of person that likes to take time off of putting that work in like Kyrie Irving.

That pen game! Peter Paid Paul has that laid back vibe fueled by production from Wavy Da Ghawd but the flows are sharp led by Skanks and followed suit emcees Chris Crown and P. General. This track can be found on the project M.O.S.T.

Snowgoons – Decimating (ft. Terrence Wood (Side Effect) (Video)

Terrence Wood and the Snowgoons have a lot of years and musical history behind them, and you can see they haven’t stopped. Track back track they never lose a step no matter how much time goes by. And this song is the next stop in the musical journey. The Snowgoons lace a melodic banger for Wood’s bars, and he really does decimate the competition line by line. Great wordplay and music that is accompanied by a spot-on video that visualizes that pen game.

Planetary – Get Slumped (Video)

Planetary is reminding everyone of what he is capable of on the microphone. The Outerspace emcee is in a musical resurgence with the pending release of his album, Project Pluto. Get Slumped is the third single from the project, and the man has bars upon bars. And the way his verses lead into this chorus makes for an excellent song. I love how the chorus navigates hip hop classic anthems. Very clever. ELEMXNT is on the production and laces a banger that will undoubtedly get stuck in your conscious.

Maze Overlay – Reggie Miller (ft. Asun Eastwood x Bub Styles) (Video)

Maze Overlay is busy prepping a new project for the masses and once again he strikes gold with this Sadhugold produced single, Reggie Miller. Every song is a win for this artist and that’s not over-talking it. This production is lethal, and while Asun Eastwood and Bub Styles both add some fire, we also know some serious heat is coming from Arizona. Maze Overlay is top tier. In terms of making dope music and songs, few if any are surpassing this man. Razor sharp wordplay. Look out for the album.

WateRR & Lupara – Whenever The Drama Came (ft. Defcee) (Video)

One of my favorite tracks so far this year is this one from WateRR and Bohemia Lynch, Whenever The Drama Came. This beat is perfect. Love the sound crafted with the strings and vocal sample. It plays the background perfectly to the conversational style as WateRR and Defcee trade bars at the restaurant table. Everything is strong on this cut, and the chorus really binds it all together.

The new album, Compendium Of Arcanum, is due out on March 20th.
