Single You Out: Father Focus Confucious – Where You Don’t Belong

a0123459946_10

Father Focus Confucious (Dead Rabbits) has been on a creative tear as of late, releasing a couple of projects already this year.  His latest one, Volcano, has quite a few heat rocks on it (tasteful pun intended).  He’s got a lot of great guest spots on it but some of the stand out joints to me are the solo tracks.

My favorite is actually the leading track, Where You Don’t Belong.  This song highlights both his skill as a producer and emcee.   I really connected and vibe with this one.

Interview Series: Taboo – Question 8

So I have drawn out our interview segment with Taboo for a couple of months to keep his name embedded in your noggins but it will all be coming to a close shortly. However, I strongly encourage our readership to check out all the short videos to get an idea for what Taboo is delivering to the game.

In this segment, Taboo goes in about all the projects he has in the works this year.  Below I have showcased his latest track, Invocations, as a member of Double Negative.

Interview Series: Taboo – Question 4

We are back to continue our video interview series with Taboo.  Here we are on question number four where Taboo goes in on the things that challenge him as an artist.   Enjoy, we are going to be completing this discourse  over the course of the next couple of weeks so enjoy.

Also enjoy this track from his Bookowski project!  We didn’t go into this particular project for the purposes of this interview but there is mad depth to be found there.

 

Interview Series: Taboo – Question 1

We here are Hip Hop Dependency are really excited to bring you our first interview feature in years!  And this really came to fruition out of true admiration for a man and his craft.  Taboo has been one of the most creative rhyme writers over the course of the last few years.   His music only gets better with time.  His concepts and lyricism vary in range but ultimately are consistent in artistry and quality.

We really wanted to take the time to showcase and perhaps introduce Taboo to our readership in a way that provided depth.  The man took the time to video his responses to our questions, giving this series a depth we hadn’t seen before.  I really hope that you all will take the time to watch this series, so that you too can appreciate his unique and talented contribution to hip hop.  Every day, for the next ten days we will be delivering his answers to our questions and showcasing some of our favorite music from him.

Single You Out: Coal Cash – Whatever Dreams May Come (ft. Taboo)

I saw Coal Cash (Double Negative) had a new album out on Bandcamp, Unsung, and I really have liked what I have hear from him thus far, so I am checking it out. And it’s a definite win! This album is big on substance, powerful lyricism, and dope production. Father Focus Confucious produced the entire project and did an incredible job.

In order to celebrate the release of this project and get the word out, I wanted to showcase this track featuring his compadre Taboo. The two have such great chemistry and create some powerful bars that play so well off of each other. It’s over eight minutes of brilliance.
