Damn. This joint is tough from Wes Nihil and Pacewon! Bersurke on the beat and he formulates a heater for these two emcees to exchange their sixteens over. I love the various instrumentation he is using here. Nihil and Pacewon dispense with the weaker and less talented emcees.
This cut is to be featured on Wes Nihil’s forthcoming project, The Wes Side Story which will entirely be produced by Bersurke. Check for that come December.
Pawz One has been a consistently dope emcee over the course of the last several years. He has dropped numerous projects and all of them are high quality. Here he drops a video single, It’s Been A Pleasure, from his most recently released project, Dance On My Grave. This is him dropping his blood, sweat, tears, and talent over a soulful production from Science.
New video up from Rome Streetz’s latest project, Noise Kandy 4. There’s few emcees out there as polished as Streetz and here you get him rocking over some production from the under-heralded Wavy Da Ghawd. Surely you can recognize the illness!
King Magnetic released a slew of singles over the course of the last couple of months, and now we get to see all of them assembled in the album produced by Tone Spliff.
Nobody’s Safe is the title track for the album, and is vintage Magnetic. as he is a bar bully when it comes to the wordplay and does so over some Tone Spliff production that will easily cause the head nod effect. Definitely check the latest from this pairing!
Ill Bill gives us a scary musical selection with the release of his video, Be Afraid! featuring emcees Conway and Pharoahe Monch. These eclectic spitters each nail an ill sixteen into the proverbial coffin. The video is on some psychedelic, 50’s cartoon feel which gives the track a ‘fun’ feel if you will.
I’ve talked about Illogic’s uniqueness here before. He has that poetic and thought provoking quality that feels like he is illuminating something grand every time he is making music. This is a thinking man’s music, so stay in ear shot!
The Autopilot album drops on Tuesday…so stand guard in anticipation of that my friends.
This track is incredibly fresh! You have the combination of Wildelux and Propo’88 making some dope we can get in with as the Certified Craftsmen. And, Hey!, definitely has that well crafted sound about it. I love the depth and layers in the production with cascading sounds and concise scratching. Wildelux also has an authority about his flow that is concise and sharp over this track.
They have a new project coming out and I am excited to hear a complete project from the two.
You haven’t studied hip hop well enough if you are not familiar with the appropriately titled Living Legends crew. In the late 90s and 2000s they were prevalent in a very prolific way with countless dope releases along the way. Some of the crew members continued to make music and others I am not so sure of…but now we see a re-emergence of the offshoot 3 Melancholy Gypsy’s (Eligh, Murs, and Scarub) and you know unequivocally that the talent remains undiminished.
We are once again graced with the presence of legends!
Rasheed Chappell and Buckwild have a project in the mix that is most anticipated and from the sound of this track you can obviously hear why. Chappell is now starting to hit a wider audience and people are catching on to just how talented this man is. Adding Buckwild’s highly acclaimed boom bap production to the mix means that this is a must-cop endeavor.
The Dirt Platoon represents again with Raf Almighty coming thru with another banger (but would we expect anything else?) Superlative production comes courtesy of Bombdrop. The pairing have an unmeasured intensity that will be hard pressed to be rivaled.
This track is a single from the upcoming Kujo album dropping in November, so stay tuned for that.
