Single You Out: Free Enterprise – The Gospel (prod. by The Kurse)

Free Enterprise is comprised of emcees Supreme Cerebral and Nowaah The Flood and because I have been away for a majority of the month, I missed out on this track and therefore didn’t even know this was coming.  But here you have two ill emcees collaborating with another dope artist in the form of producer, The Kurse.   You can hear the ill chemistry in this soulful cut, appropriately entitled, The Gospel.  It’s contrasting yet complimentary styles.

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.
