Single You Out: Famoso – Burgundy Clouds (ft. Spit Gemz)

It’s been a long time since I have featured from music from the artist Famoso, but he just released a project called, Tales From Tha’ Dopeside, and he needs to be represented again. The project is eleven tracks long and they are ALL bangers.

Burgundy Clouds features the one and only Spit Gemz so I selected this track as the feature from the album. And while this track is a few years old, these guys show great chemistry and unleash a fury of wordplay over production from Alterbeats.

Check the project! You won’t regret it!

Famoso – Crooklyn Bars (ft. Taj Mahal) (Video)

Famoso and Taj Mahal are verbal street sweepers on their latest track, Crooklyn Bars.  They each serve up a steady diet of dopeness over a J-Classic banger.    Famoso and Taj sound really good together over this beat ala some Mobb Deeo classic shit circa 1996.

They both have mixtapes dropping next month:  Famoso – Tales From Tha Dopeside and Taj Mahal – Power so make sure you give those a look.

Rediculus – Kalashnikovs & Kush (ft. Shabaam Sahdeeq, El Gant, Famoso & Bekay)

The single dropped a couple of weeks ago and subsequently we get the visuals.  The concept is almost like a basement cypher.  As we said when we brought you the single a couple of weeks ago each of these emcees goes in with their verses.  There is no weak link in the armor.  In the description of the video  there is a comparison of Bekay to ODB for this particular cut and that seems appropriate.   I mean, dude is giving himself a haircut while spittin’ a dope sixteen…

This again is off of Rediculous’ forthcoming album, In Response: Dee-Fi.

Single You Out: Rediculous – Kalashnikov and Kush (ft. Shabaam Sahdeeq, El Gant, Famoso, Bekay)



I love the music Rediculous puts out.   He always puts out fantastic beats and tags with the elite emcees in the game.  In this case, on Kalashnikov and Kush he gets bars from Shabaam Sahdeeeq (has anyone done more work than him in 2014), El Gant, Famoso, and Bekay.  That’s one hell of a line up!

Rediculous’ new album, In Response: Dee-Fi, is due out hopefully soon!


Single You Out: Famoso – Hip Hop 101 (ft. Shabaam Sahdeeq)



Tales From Tha’ Dopeside will finally surface in approximately two weeks.  Meanwhile Famoso leaks this Thorotracks produced single featuring Shabaam Sahdeeq.

I am not sure how old this track actually is as I see it is referenced on the web all the way back in 2009.  But no matter how old the material, the joint still knocks.

Single You Out: Benefit – Killa Kannibals (ft. PH and Famoso)



As Benefit readies his next “timing” project, Timing Of A Godfather, he unleashed Killa Kannibals.  A cut in which heavy hitters, PH and Famoso join him on the mic.   It’s got all of those head-nodding qualities that you are all always craving.   In particular check that third verse from Famoso.  He incorporates some Trayvon Martin and Magna Carta / Holy Grail references that definitely capture your attention.

Single You Out: Undefined – Swinging Pendulums (ft. Nutso, Sycksyllables & Famoso)



The second single from Undefined’s new project,  Certified A-Side, features HHD staples, Nutso and Famoso along side Sycksyllables.  The track has a low key rock vibe to it.  It also features some nice sampling.   It’s definitely dope when you combine the subtlety of the music with the heavy handedness of the emcees.
