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.

Single You Out: Dillon & Diamond D – Feast

If you see Diamond D’s name on anything these day, heads pay attention, and as well they should. Especially on this track, when Dillon is rhyming. Dillon could be heard on the insanely slept on 2016 project, Food Chain. He has all of the intangibles that you look for in an emcee, and with DITC backing, he is sure to gain a little more well-deserved recognition. This is a pretty mellow single off of the forthcoming collaboration, Black Tie Affair, due out on September 8th.

Single You Out: Kyo Itachi x Ruste Juxx – Samurai Sushi

New single from Kyo Itachi’s forthcoming album, Genkidama, featuring oft-collaborator Ruste Juxx. These two, over the course of the last couple of years and two projects, have really honed in on a sound. Itachi intermingles the strings with the drums while Juxx lets off his sixteen without fear and remorse.

There are high hopes for this project. Itachi has become one of the top producers in the game and the project is laden with heavy lyrical hitters.

Sir Diggy – Illest Ever Made (ft. AG Da Coroner x Ruste Juxx) (Video)

Fresh off the release of Sir Diggy’s EP, Gold Frame Portraits, drops the video single for the cut Illest Ever Made. Nickel Plated puts the panic in the production, Juxx on the chorus, and Diggy with AG Da Coroner on the sixteens. This joint surely jumps!

I copped and checked the EP and it all bangs as hards as this track, so check it out if you are feeling this song.
