Apollo Brown x Planet Asia – The Aura (Video)

Who’s excited about this collaborative project from Apollo Brown and Planet Asia, Anchovies, dropping next Friday? I know I am. These two artists are at the top of their game right now. Brown gives us blessings in the subtlest of forms with a stripped down, yet impactful production. Asia CONSISTENTLY proves that he has one of the sharpest flows in the game without a let down.

Vinnie Paz – The Ghost I Used To Be (ft. Eamon) (Video)

Vinnie Paz lets loose another video from his solo project from last year, The Cornerstone Of The Corner Store. Vinnie is narrating on the evil than men do for the sake of the dollar and the control it has over people. The track also features a gritty hook from Eamon and production from C-Lance.

Hopefully you have already checked the album, if not, go check it out now.

Whatson – The Cycle (ft. Nutso x Robb P x M-Dot) (Video)

Oh man a couple of my favorite emcees, Nutso and M-Dot link up over this KNOCKIN’ beat from Whatson. This production is off the Richter Scale. The drums hit with intensity and the samples are so on point they could draw blood. All of the emcees drop some true verbal insanity. The one emcee I was not super familiar with, Robb P, really impresses when rocking alongside accomplished emcees. There are lots of quotables to be had in under three minutes!

The Cycle is a single off of Whatson’s, album which has yet to receive a title but is guaranteed to smack.

IDE – Nirvana (Video)

IDE’s album, Breathe Easy, is a stalwart from 2016, and Nirvana is an acid trip from that album in the form of a video single. The music from Lucky Loopiano and Kelly Finnigan is trippy and abstract while IDE serves as the wordplay wizard.

I know I have mentioned this before, but I am going to make mention of it again. IDE’s flow and wordplay have become more and more advanced with every release and heads are starting to take notice.

I hope to hear more from Creative Juices soon.

Original Text – Knot Rap (Video)

I just happened to be wandering by Original Text’s Twitter page and picked up on this video that was released four months ago. Original Text is comprised of Ari Why and Tito Fuerte and let me tell you, the music they put out is incredibly ill. The production from Ari Why is sophisticated, intoxicating, and knocks incredibly hard. Tito Fuerte, flips a stream of dope lines together with varying cadences that meld with the music.

The EP, Double Scale, was said to only be available on cassette, but my sources say the digital is dropping next Friday. There are also a couple other songs from the project we will be sharing in the coming days.

Finale x Fel Sweetenberg – Six Stringed Puppets (Video)

If you haven’t heard, Finale and Fel Sweetenberg have a new album out called, Two Kings. And if you aren’t down with this sickness, then I don’t want your kind of immunity. The beat by Sweetenberg is just way to ill and both emcees have an insane about of bars in this piece. And did you hear Finale drop that Oscar Pistorious line?

This album is one of the best this year…bet.
