This is bound to be one of the hidden gems of 2015. Jered Sanders delivers lyrical genius in heavy doses with, God’s Gift. Sanders simply is not your average run-of-the-mill emcees. He is extremely clever with wordplay and that is evident with every song he has dropped. The beat takes a minute to settle in, but once Analogic assembles all the components, I am hooked.
I haven’t checked the entire album yet, but I am about to. The album is called, Daylight Saving’s Time.
..it’s a breeze when I come off the top like a weather vain
MadKem puts the visuals to a track from La Vie en Bleu. On the song, The Breeze, he links up with affiliate K-Hill for some added narration. This track is about ambition, persistence, and the pursuit of utilizing one’s abilities to the fullest extent. At least that’s how I see it.
MadKem is dwelling in the darkness right now. And lets face it, when an artist goes into a dark place, some of the best music gets made. This joint is soulful, and the way MadKem handles the chorus makes it even more so. His forthcoming album. La Vie en Bleu is dropping really soon, and as goes with all Elementality music, I certainly think you should look to copping that.
I am really waiting on K-Hill’s new EP, Achilles’ Hill, and the forthcoming album by the same title in the summer. This track is a combination of soulful instrumentation and vocal samples with K-Hill’s authoritative boom-bap delivery. K-Hill just has that voice that sticks with you. There is also a bonus remix to be downloaded by IMAKEMADBEATS. The EP drops on February 26th.

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.
This is the solo version of a track that originally featured multiple artists on DJ K.O.’s EMPBeTheTeam. This version is headed for Silent Knight’s Busy Is My Best Friend II. This track has all the soul in the world and add Silent Knight’s conviction, you can count this one as a winner.
The man who dropped the Single Of The Year in 2011 is back at it in the latter part of this year, prepping his next project, Busy Is My Best Friend II. This song is the anti-thesis of C.R.E.A.M. in the observations of Silent Knight. Can he get us to drop that ‘cash first’ mentality? Well, I can tell you the song is fresh, contains dope lyricism, and a well intentioned message. Check it…
New music from Elementality’s MadKem. We did a review for his last album, Charles Workman last year and he’s ready to release his latest project, La Vie En Bleu in 2013. Bobby Flay is the first sample from that project produced by Analogic…are you not entertained? Simply one of the most unique artists making hip hop…
Latest and last single from DJ K.O.’s EMPBeTheTeam album set to drop next week. So get set to support this release. This man is at the heart of what is right with hip hop right now. On this track he enlists my favorite team member, Silent Knight. Dope cut!
Here’s another name I haven’t heard in a while. K-Hill is back with the Elementality camp with a dope new track produced by Madwreck. There’s a lot to like with this joint and it all starts with that crooning sample Madwreck uses. It’s addicting. K-Hill certainly makes his presence known has he attempts to preserve the ‘covenant’. Got a real nice flow going on here…
