Single You Out: Jamo Gang – Belushi & Akroyd

a3836555046_10

Holy shit!  This is super dope!   I am highly anticipating this album from Jamo Gang, Walk With Lions, even more so now!  The combination of El Gant, Ras Kass, and J57 seems like an unstoppable force and you and this cut is a prime example.  This track defines ferocity.   J57 puts together a head nodder that infuses a rock rhythm into some boom bap and Gant and Ras Kass put on a verbal demolition for all of us to hear.

Album drops on April 10th!

2018: Best EPs

So here is a list of my favorite EPs from 2018.   I easily could have extended this list to 25 projects and been really comfortable about that.  However, I really wanted to showcase what I consider to be the best projects in a year where there was so much greatness to consider.  In the end, there were no votes, judges, or etcetera.  This was simply a matter of personal preference.  I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I did.

Notes:

I am going to start featuring one album from the previous week every Monday because there is so much good music that I believe is going unheard.   And this album from French producer, Astro Vandalist,  is something that you guys need to be made aware of.  It’s 17 tracks of unadulterated and potent hip hop.  The beats really hit hard and you can see by this lineup of emcees that there are some heavy hitters on here.

Check out and cop the whole thing as it is worth every penny, but here are my favorite tracks if you want a sampling!

Jamo Gang – Straight, No Chase (Video)

Jamo Gang (El Gant x Ras Kass) rip over a J57 banger flexing their lyrical stylings. This could easily be an anthem for all of us who endeavor to a higher level of hip hop. El Gant and Ras Kass are a potent duo. Ras Kass is a legend and one of the all time greatest wordsmiths to do it, and while El Gant might not have the same notoriety, he is not to be bested. He spits bars with an equal measure of tenacity and venom.

Look out for the album this summer! It’s going to be one to remember!
