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!

Single You Out: Jamo Gang – Go Away

JamoGang

Last single before the Jamo Gang EP drops on January 31st.  You know that shit is going to be flames…and no…not lighter flames.  Like California Forrest Fire type arson! J57 laces ANOTHER incredible uptempo banger, that accomplished wordsmiths, El Gant and Ras Kass stake claim to another bout of verbal armageddon.  Does that sound over-dramatic?  Not really.

Single You Out: Jamo Gang – All Eyes on Us

JamoGang

It’s early, but this track from Jamo Gang (El Gant, Ras Kass, J57) could be one of the toughest tracks of 2018.  Good lawd!  That bass line, the scratching, the bars, all the way down to the additional vocals makes this joint a legitimate threat to anyone’s ears.  This song was so dope to the senses I almost suffered stigmata.

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!

Skeezo & Rediculous – Watch Ya Step Remix (ft. El Gant and Bekay) (Video)

Oh you were truly not ready for this joint.    Rediculous applied a particular type of funk to make this joint rock while Skeezo, El Gant, and Bekay launch an all out verbal assault on all the skinny jean wearing hipsters who claim to be able to rock the crowd.   These are joints that hip hop heads scream for, so make sure you dowload the album and share it with a friend.  You owe these men that much.
