Here’s another single from Recognize Ali’s forthcoming album, Allah’s Favorite, featuring Chicago emcee Verbal Kent and the result is ill. Eyedee laces a stripped down production, yet one that certainly bangs. That production is escorted by scratches implanted by DJ TMB. Kent and Ali prove to be an imposing force on this track. I have high hopes and expectations for this project.
This is an ill cut from Double Negative’s (Taboo x Coal Cash) album Krackatoa with cuts from DJ TMB. The production is dark and heavy and the rhymes have a violent tendency. Disengage. Unplug from the matrix. Check this album!
Side note: Taboo is one of my favorite writers/emcees right now. A true wordsmith.

I am not going to start off this review by telling you how much I have been a fan of Venomous2000 over the years. That would be disingenuous. As a matter of fact, you won’t see too much music from him posted on this site since it’s inception. Honesty being the best policy, while I respected the man’s talent, I was never really “wowed” by his previous bodies of work, and I had purchased more than just a couple of projects.
When it comes to Heddshotts and Junior Makhno, they are all about bringing you that hardcore hip hop. And this track, Get Ready, is just the first shot from the salvo. Their project, Circus of the Freaks, will be dropping on December 16th. This track is a little reminiscent of some Gravediggaz material. Enjoy.
