Single You Out: Big O – Wake Up Freestyle b/w You Cant Stop

Big O Prelude 4 Da Pavement LP Cover

No rest for one of our most featured emcees, Big O.  He went right back to the lab and crafted a “two-for-one” with the Wake Up Freestyle, and You Can’t Stop.  The second joint actually self produced.  He is hard at work with the forthcoming release of The Delegation 2 which has a drop date of February 22nd.  If you missed out before make sure you check out his interview Here.

Single You Out: Lordwillin x Big O – Bobby Heenan (prod. by 4th Assassin)

4th Assassin

Lord Willin and Big O tag team over this 4th Assassin banger.   The track gets it’s title from former WWF manager, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan.   I am not sure how this title is derived from the song because I don’t remember much about Heenan.  But who cares?   This track is dope.  4th Assassin always brings out the best in emceees (ala Big O’s last album, Gravel Engravement).

Artist Spotlight: Big O (2013)

Big O

Hip Hop Dependency is designed to support artists that I believe in, and I can’t think of too many more artists that I support more than Big O.   I am a fan of Big O because he brings that raw boom-bap unfiltered to headphones everywhere.  He’s got a gritty flow and a hunger to rock these lines for the people which you just don’t hear anymore.

Today also marks the release of his new album Gravel Engravement which can  be found online anywhere and everywhere they sell albums.  And while I may have gotten the album title twisted in the interview below., I didn’t get this twisted:  This album bangs!

So check the interview below and make sure you ride with the homie Big O and cop that album.  If you like that head nod flavor, you are going to enjoy this.

Single You Out: 4th Assassin – Reservoir Dogs (ft. Faez One, Pryme Prolifik, Absoulut Karnage, Big O, Tha Soloist, and INF with cutz by DJ Madhandz)

4th Assassin posted this on his Twitter feed and I knew this was going to be nice.  The guitar sample and piano keys are the perfect back drop for this posse cut. The samples chopped in are just icing on the cake.  I am not sure if this joint will wind up on any project so be sure to enjoy it now.
