Single You Out: Will4Prez x Hobgoblin – The League

This is your “aha moment” thus far in 2023. Will4prez and Hobgoblin unleash a project no one may have been anticipating but you are going to start hearing more and more about. This project, Bar Barracks is going to put the hip hop world on notice. The beats from Hobgoblin are punishing, and equal to the task is Will4prez. It’s incredibly impressive and potent. The wordplay is superlartive. This is a rewind, front to back, kind of an album.

The League might be my favorite track from the album, but tough to say, that could change. What I do know is that you will be wow’d. Check it!

Single You Out: Word & Skinny Bonez The Godfatha – Bangkok Bar Brawls (ft. Mickey Diamond & Dro Pesci)

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: Wounded Buffalo Beats – Top Tier Tech (ft. Ruste Juxx x JabbaThaKut)

Yes!!! Wounded Buffalo Beats has to be one of my favorite producers right now. They had one of the best projects out last year in my humble opinion and now we get another heat rock featuring Ruste Juxx. And both these artists DELIVER. Juxx hits you up with some great life lyricism on this one and 20 years of Top Tier Tech. Jabbathakut chopping it up just adds to the song’s brilliance.

Chase Moore & Fredo Algebra РTombstone (Video)

Here’s ANOTHER joint that I missed out on back in September. I have seriously been slacking but I am present in the here and now showcasing some illness from the revered Chase Moore and incredibly talented, Fredo Algebra. Production of course comes from more and he makes that beat cry. I love the samples and the somber tones as the emcees welcome the smoke from the competition. Tough track.

Another album I need to check out from last year, Water Buffalos 2: Double Axe Handles.

Mooch (Da Cloth) – Hit The Deck (Video) (Prod. (Farma)

You already know that if Mooch has some new music out, it’s going to get a proper write up here. And now he’s got Farmabeats back for a Heroin Farms 2 project on the way?! This just made my day. These two make some really dope art. The first project gets played all the time. And they are picking right up where they left off with their lead single, Hit The Deck.

Now is the time of Da Cloth. No getting around it.

Single You Out: Lucky Tatt – Answer To A Question (prod. by Endemic Emerald)

Lucky Tatt is a name I hadn’t heard before but he has some Endemic Emerald production going on and to me that’s a solid endorsement. Endemic Emerald would only work with true talent, and that’s what we have here in Lucky Tatt, and his single, Answer To A Question, from his recently released album, Provenance.

Answer To A Question showcases intelligence, introspection, and a health dose of social consciouness. Add to that formula a very capable emcee, and a stalwart of a producer, I think we have a win here folks. I am going to be checking out his album in the very near future.
