Madhattan – LivelyHood (Prod Rob Deniro) (Video)

Here’s a heavy track from Madhattan and producer Rob Deniro.  The song is dark, ominous, and intimidating.  The piano and the bass from Deniro is the stark soundscape needed for Madhattan to drop a solid and dope salvo of bars.   This song should definitely be making some noise from two artists that have been grinding hard as of late.

The two have a collaborative EP dropping called San Gennaro.

Rigz – Still Big L (Video)

I didn’t get to post this video a week ago, but I am still going to be sharing it because it’s that kind of dope people need to hear.   You’ve got Rigz and Milano Constatine paying homage to the legend Big L with this short but compelling joint.  Constatine laces a nice beat for Rigz who really represents.  This joint goes hard.

Don’t confuse talent with pride, that’s just your ego / At once side you can dunk a little, but lack a free throw.

DJ Muggs & Eto – Holy Wine (Video)

Muggs and Eto linking up proves to instantly be an ill combination.   Muggs is lacing up something that can best be described as sinister, with this latest production, and only made more so with the visuals.  Eto, meanwhile, is making an early push for busiest emcee in the business.  He is bringing a gritty fire to this track.

Hells Roof is the forthcoming album, and this has all the trappings of something great.


Solomon Childs – Bullsh!t Refusal (Video)

Solomon Childs and Tone Spliff release the video single for this joint off of their collaborative album, The Prophet and the King, which is out now.   This is just no-nonsense hip hop and these two artists are definitely not playing.  The song has a melodic vibe to it but this is not sing-a-long rap.   Childs is delivering heavy-hitting bars and Tone Spliff adds the necessary scratches for all the dope touches.

Check it out!

38 Spesh – Flour City (ft. Eto) (Video)

38 Spesh’s impromptu release from a week ago, 5 Shots, is a prelude to his album, 38 Strategies Of War, dropping on Friday.   But damn if each of these joints isn’t a notch above flawless.   This EP is as dope as anyone can do it!  The fact that Spesh produced each track is a testament to the man’s talent on many levels.  Flour City is gritty from first to last with Eto doing a guest spot and killing it as always.

38 Spesh is setting bars to new heights….enjoy!

The Opioid Era – Dope Nodd (Produced by Homage Beats) (Video)

First off, I love the group name, The Opioid Era, and this trio of emcees is dropping that raw-raw rap with tough rhymes over rhythms that harken back to the mid-1990s.   I am really digging what I am hearing from these artists.   Definitely a talent to pay attention to.

They have a new self-titled album out now that I will be checking into sooner rather than later.
