Single You Out: Junior Makhno – Gunman (ft. Planet Asia)

This is Junior Makhno’s first single from his forthcoming album, Party Discipline. And what a magnificent single it is! He enlists Planet Asia to spit inside of his production vortex.

Asia has been one of the most consistent emcees over the course of the last decade plus and he never disappoints, while Makhno is no stranger from boom-bap production and hard hitting sounds.

Great combo!

REKS – H.I.P.H.O.P. (prod. by Apollo Brown) (Video)

Reks crafted this video single from his 2016 album, The Greatest X. The production hails from the mind of none other than Apollo Brown.

The acronym stands for H.er I.finite P.owers H.elp O.ppressed P.eople. The music stands for the genre that assist people through difficult times and struggle. As an artist, Reks expresses how the music became a vehicle of expression for him. Dope track from a dope album.

Single You Out: The Aztext – Good Weather

New music from The Aztext? Yes, sir! I don’t think they have dropped anything since their album Four, and it’s really good to hear the Burlington duo again rock the mic.

Good Weather is a very laid back which is easy on the ears. Sometimes we need to take time to relax and stop checking our watches. It will all pass us by soon enough.

On the second half of the single we have Pass The Mic, which is a more traditional hip hop joint. You can envision the emcees gathered in a circle and trading verses over a beatbox.

Let’s hope a new project is in the works!

Mr. Complex – I’m Ready (ft. Dres and El Fudge) (Video)

How do you like this? Mr. Complex and none other than El Fudge are back together blessing the mic with an assist from Dres. The lyrical wizardry may have taken a few years off but back as sharp as ever. According to sources, Complex has a new album dropping produced by Mortal 1 coming later this year.

Now can I get a new El Fudge project?  Thank you!

Superior – Earn It (ft. M-Dot & Revalation) (Video)

New video single off of Superior’s latest album, The Journey. And this video features none other than EMS cohorts, M-Dot and Revalation. The song, Earn It, is the perfect track for these guys to put a little perspective on the game. So many acts are just flash in the pans who have paid absolutely no dues. They expect just to show up and have it handed to them. EMS perfectly embodies the mentality that hard work and talent pay off.

Cop this album. Lots of good joints on here.
