This release serves to wet the listener’s appetite and get you ready for Ayatollah’s forthcoming album Avant Garde which is going to drop on March 5th. As you can see from the track listing, Ayatollah has worked with some of the industry’s biggest names.

Elementality has released this collection of songs in a continuous 40 minute mix to showcase some of the highlights from his body of the work.   My hope is that you will DL, throw it in the iPod (or like device) and get familiar or re-familiar, whichever is the case.

Elementality is home to some of the most talented emcees and producers in the business and it all starts from DJ K.O.  He can orchestrate some beautiful music with his team and that’s exactly what he does with EMPBeTheTeam.  Everything is done in house production wise and with the duties on the mic because when your camp is this talented you don’t have to rely on anybody else.

Single You Out: DJ K.O. – Drunk Girls (ft. MadKem, Silent Knight & Jered Sanders)

 

New single from the EMPBeTheTeam album by DJ K.O.  The emcees articulate stories about that girl who had a little too much to drink in the evening.  The production mellow, perhaps even a little soulful, while lyrically it’s all just a little humorous to hear the emcees discussing their tales of the drunk girl.

Single You Out: DJ K.O. – Stand Up! (ft. Silent Knight, Jered Sanders, Justin Bates, K-Hill, East, MadKem)

There are many artists that deserve your support, but perhaps none so more, as DJ K.O.  You remember DJ K.O. right?  He’s the man who helped bring you over 5o dope hip hop tracks for FREE last year.   He is also the man who dropped one of the illest albums from a producer…ever.  Picture This dropped in 2008 and featured countless dope producers and emcees and now he is back, four years later with his sophomore effort…EMPBeTheTeam.

This track definitely has the funky factor behind it and brings the entire Elementality team so check the cut, and then make sure to cop the album when it drops.

11 The Moon (prod. Madwreck)

Note:

These are the dayz of rot!‘, the words resonate as you begin listening to MadKem’s first album, Charles Workman.  The track (Dayz Of Rot) has a tribal, yet funky feel to it.   It starts of with what sounds like some tribal chant, then hit you off with some bongo drums, and then the finger snaps.  The track has a feel unlike any other that I have heard in 2011.   The use of vocal samples and a very organic production make this a track that you will remember.  MadKem drops lyrics that put the listener on to what brought him into the rhyme game in the first place and where he is going with it.  Everything about this track is exceptional.  Madwreck definitely deserves props for his work behind the boards on this joint.
