Single You Out: Supreme Cerebral – Clean Shot (ft. Born Unique) (prod. by Pete Twist)

Supreme Cerebral is just getting started with 2018, after dropping his God’s Gift project just weeks ago, he unleashes another banger produced by Pete Twist, and featuring fellow beat abuser, Born Unique, to share the mic.   This song is just tough.  The piano, the drums,  and vocal sample by Twist, are an ominous precursor to verbal fireworks.

This is yet another single from Kings Throne 2 which is due out on August 22nd.  Mark it on your calendar because all of these tracks have been tough.

Single You Out: Planet Asia – Mansa Musa Medallions (ft. Hus Kingpin x Smooth)

Planet

Planet Asia is gearing up for another album, Mansa Musa, which is set to drop in a couple of days and since the man can do no wrong, and you love hip hop, this is an auto-cop.  Who has consistently dropped more dopeness than Planet Asia over the years?  No one has delivered what he has with this type of consistency.

On the single, Mansa Musa Medallions, Hus Kingpin and Smoovth join Planet Asia over a glorious production from J.O.D.    The track has an ill, yet glorious flavor about it.

Single You Out: Tone Spliff & Young Lo – Mastered The Flow (ft. Recognize Ali)

Young-400x400

I am pretty familiar with Tone Spliff and surely know Recognize Ali at this point with as many as gems as he’s unleashed over the last couple of years.  But it’s about time we all get up on Young Lo.  Wait a minute!   Check that…Young Lo, is actually an artist that we’ve helped promote sometime ago, when he went by the name Emilio Lopez.  He was dope then and it’s really good to hear him doing his thing again.  His flow sounds filthy over this Tone Spliff production, casting mumble rappers over the ledge.

Really dope song, hailing from the forthcoming project, Tape Deck Music, dropping in June.

Sorry I Slept: Ekspan – Utterly Disgusted (2016)

I haven’t done one of these features in a minute because to be honest I really don’t have the time to go back and check out older releases unless I just happen to stumble upon them.

Well that happened, somehow, when I came upon this excellent album from Ekspan entitled, Utterly Disgusted.    And I mean EXCELLENT.  The production is entirely superlative and the wordplay and flows are well beyond what we are seeing for the most part today.

Single You Out: Ill Conscious – Capital Investements (ft. DJ Grazzhoppa)

a1187172209_10

Here’s a project and artist that needs to be mentioned in the form of Ill Conscious and his lates venture, The Prerequisite.  The flow on this track, Capital Investments, is nothing short of lyrical surgery on the track.  Conscious’ wordplay on this tracks sophisticate with lots of noteworthy lines.  Plus, DJ Grazzhoppa is on the cuts, and when he is involved on a track, you know his touches are going to put it over the top.

This is a standout cut not only from the project, but for the year thus far. Check it out!

Single You Out: Neighborhood Creeps – Song Of The Dead

Here’s some new illness from a group that I am not familiar with but sound pretty dope if you ask me.

The whole project from Neighborhood Creeps is consistent in it’s high quality music. The flows are legit with flavorful lyricism. And the beats are strong with interesting and well placed samples. It has a very dark sound which resonates with me. So enjoy this one dope track out of many and then cop the album, The Boom Slang.

Special Teamz – Voltron (Video)

Man, if Jaysaun, Ed OG, and Slaine decide to drop an album you can call it game over for the competition! I mean check out what they do over this Teddy Roxpin production! This is probably one of the ills competitions in the game and I can only hope that lightning strikes twice when it comes to an album.

As it is, this is off of Jaysaun’s forthcoming project…and that’s going to be certified ill in it’s own right.
