This is an instant hit! The beat by DJ b-Able is one of the finest productions this year. The way he works in the soulful hook and the samples makes the song feel like a mesh of soul, blues, and boom-bap. The verses by Don Streat, Gatsby The Great, and Revalation are the proverbial dynamite. Rev in particular has some serious zingers in his verse make this track a monumental eulogy.
Loving this new cut from Don Streat and producer Odeewyne. This production coupled with Streat’s intense delivery makes this cut a much listen for 2016.
I hope yo hear more from Streat this year. Very underrated emcee.
These Handz is comprised of producer Sparkii Ski and DJ Grazzhoppa and they are all about that boom bap hip hop flavor. We have here two mixes of the same song but they are both banging so I wanted to feature both. I have mentioned Grazzhoppa countless times on here and he has never been a part of a bad project or song. Everything he has done has been the premium project.
On this song we have JMega from True Masterz rocking with Don Streat and Macabeats from the Animal Pak. It’s lyrically fire which blends perfectly with the fire of the production and scratching. The remix from Mighgawd is more of a down tempo pace that has more of a rock influenced flavor behind it but it’s dope nonetheless. Make sure you give these a listen.
The Animal Pak is a nine man collective who unite on this track to set the official definition of the term ‘posse cut’. If I had to pick a favorite verse I would put it on Senica Da Misfit on the strength of that Jodi Arias line. But good gravy each of these emcees sets this mic ablaze.
This track is off of the mixtape, Animal Planet, which is available now at the extremely affordable price of 5 duckets.
There is no stopping this Cool FD and Don Streat connection. They are running this dopeness by listeners time and time again. I don’t see an end in sight to their collaborative effort and there should be no talk of that any way. These guys are going about the art the right way, with big beats and sharp lyricism.
This is a remix 8-BZA worked out for one of Revelation’s tracks off of his latest mixtape, Feature Presentation. The remix is pretty ill, complimented perfectly with the Dirty Harry references in the background. All of the emcess murk the record but Streat really sets the tone with that first sixteen. Just an intense delivery like he’s inflicting pain on the track.
Oh…so Brooklyn represented earlier but not to be outdone are these B-More boys! Don Streat, Sullee J, and Lord Baltimore DDS slaughter this production from D.R.U.G.S. Beats. I was really captivated by the bars from Sullee J. He was spitting with a rapid fire and intense delivery. It got me amped just sitting here. I am not sure if this song is off of any project in particular but it certainly belongs in your collection!
I see the homie Don Streat popping up on a lot of releases this year. I guess heads are starting to recognize the talent…finally. This track, with the production from DJ Nucleus, is hype. Joining Streat on this track is Joe Lazarus, Senica Da Misfit, and EMS’ Revalation. It’s a recipe for a banger.
This track can be found on DJ Nucleus’ latest mixtape, Forces Unleashed Round 2
Only Cool FD cold mingle this horn into the darkness of the drums and then switch it up into more of a jazzy flavor. Really dope (yet intricate) work from behind the boards. Also, the combination of Streat, Pritt, Hennessy, and Macabeats with that Cool FD flavor has really become something formidable. They are cultivating a sound of their own and I hope this continues to grow into some sort of full length project. It could be the showstopper of the year (hint, hint)
D.R.U.G.S. Beats laces this piano driven banger for the aforementioned emcees and your very own listening pleasure. A lot of energy vested in this track from all parties representing B’More to the fullest. I am not sure if this is connected with any other projects, but it stands on it’s own regardless.
