I am probably off to a slow start when it comes to Benny The Butcher but I am trying to rectify that shit as we speak. Dude has a dope voice and nice flow as an emcee. He’s definitely dropping phrases from the street life and I am not going to complain. Shit is ill.
DJ Green Lantern is on the beat. And this is actually precursor to the collaborative mixtape, Butcher On Steroids.
Blacastan and Stu Bangas are all but set to release their new album next week, The Uncanny Adventures Of Watson And Holmes. And this song definitely sets the tone for the release. Stu Bangas really has developed some sickness from behind the boards on this one. The bass line…guitar licks…with the drums is premier stuff. Blacastan delivers his bars like a hell hound. He’s got firey bars and owns this rhythm.
Can’t wait to see what’s on tap with this album.
M-Dot keeps creating and innovating with everything he does. In this industry, you have to endeavor to be different in addition to be skilled. In this manner, M-Dot sets himself apart by giving you another 360 degree video on top of giving you superlative lycism. I felt like I should throw my VR Headset on to watch this video.
The competition can’t keep pace and Ego and The Enemy drops 01/27/2017.
La Coka Nostra is back like the horsemen of the apocalypse dropping strife and pestilence through your speakers with their latest single, Waging War. On the track you get dope sixteens from both Ill Bill and Slaine, along with a strong hook from Rite Hook. Arcitype is on the beat.
The group’s album, To Thine Own Self Be True, is due out on November 4th and is not to be missed.
UG’s forthcoming album, Portals, is my White Whale. I have been waiting for it forever and for the longest time, I thought it was never going to drop. I thought it was just going to be shelved. But now we have proof of life with the IDE produced single, The Mystic. On this track you get to hear UG flip a one of a kind style over a production that actually caters to the word…”mystic”.
Even greater news is that we have a release date for the new album. It’s dropping on October 21st. Make sure you notate that on your calendar.
Man, when is this project dropping? Shaz Illyork be dropping a steady dose of bangers on the hip hop community. RAST and Illyork deliver verbal artillery over a banging production off the hands of Strange Neighbor.
Wide Awake coming soon, but not soon enough for me.
A new remix out for the cut Soap Opera from Sareem Poems and Ozay Moore. the production comes courtesy of Soulseize. The artists are putting a poetic twist on a deteriorating social situation. As certain members of the police appear ever more at odds with the Black Community, it’s songs like this that give us that lend perspective to time and place.
Hip Hop Dependency family, Cayoz, is back with a new single that is simply put…fuego. He’s teaming up with producer O*Zee (who is a dope emcee by the way) and Mayhem and Revalation of EMS. It’s a union of dopeness. Then you got Jabbathakut chopping it up, making this the sure shot.
Relay on the mic!
Saint Joe arrives on our pages with the crack of thunder. It looks like it’s been out for a while and I just missed it. The best way for me to describe this track with Chino XL and Chris Rivers is rawkus! The beat strikes like controlled chaos, while the emcees release an unrelenting fire. In particular Chino XL drops some ridiculously rapid fire delivery.
Thinning Out The Herd drops on August 5th and is available for Pre-Order.
You wanted a banger today? I got one for you from Coloasus MC & The Great Terror. I am really feeling the beat from Jumunji Beats. And the emcees don’t leave the production to waste as they each throw in some pretty intense bars.
There is supposedly a collabo album coming about from the two. I will check it. This cut is strong.
