If you haven’t heard, Finale and Fel Sweetenberg have a new album out called, Two Kings. And if you aren’t down with this sickness, then I don’t want your kind of immunity. The beat by Sweetenberg is just way to ill and both emcees have an insane about of bars in this piece. And did you hear Finale drop that Oscar Pistorious line?
This album is one of the best this year…bet.
Detroit’s Finale links up with Camden stalwart, Fel Sweetenberg for a new project. One Light is the first release from the project, Two Kings, and I think we can anticipate something dope when the full length drops. This track is hitting like two emcees on a war march.
…I bet this shit feel like a whole lifetime worth of Mic Tyson uppercuts..
The combo of Jamil Honesty and Cool FD are back at it again with a new single and a remix for that very single. This joint is a a true gem. Cool FD cooks up some production on the original that sounds so effortless. It’s smooth, soulful, and has enough knock to snap that neck back. Honesty and Sweetenberg integrate seamlessly within the rhythm and drop some crisp flows with some sick lyricism. I am particularly impressed with Honesty who sounds right at home with this beat right here.
The only thing different on the remix is the addition of a new sixteen featuring Ill Conscious. And he really does make a nice contribution with his verse.
Be on the lookout for Cool FD and Jamil Honesty’s forthcoming project, The Missing Flag.
Who is on a bigger roll than Starvin B? No one. That’s who. He’s an emcee that is at the top of his game right now and when he flips over this Fel Sweetenberg beat, you can hear what all the fervor is about. The talent is real and I am sure he hasn’t even quite started yet. The sky is the limit for Starvin B.
Make sure you check out the entire Soul Museum project.
Unbeknownst to me, the team at Effiscienz was holding a remix competition for producers to flip an original song from Fel Sweetenberg’s album, The Invisible Garden. Well guess who came thru as the winner? It should come as no surprise that oft-featured producer, Cool FD stole the show by remixing the Dirt Platoon featured track, The End Of The Book.
This is just one of the man bangers off of Fel Sweetenberg’s latest album, The Invisible Garden which is completely produced by DJ Brans. This time the Dirt Platoon completes the rugged offering by contributing some bars of their own.
I first came across Lawrence Arnell on a V-Zilla single I posted not that long ago. And lately you hear that name buzzing, and for good reason. The man is really competent with the verbals. On the track, Rage Against The Machine he teams up with a showstopper in his own right, Fel Sweetenberg. Sweetenberg not only lends his voice but his talent behind the boards as well. The production gives the feel that you are in a old school Nintendo game where the emcees are on the hunt. Just a thought…
It’s been a loooong minute since I have heard new music from Fel Sweetenberg, but I loved his last album, The Sophmore Jinx. It was one of the first albums I reviewed back in 2010. This track make it appear that he took no days off as it’s just as, if not better, than his earlier material. Some of that credit probably needs to be given to boom bap specialist, DJ Brans for lacing that beat.
First time that I have featured Aul Purpis on HHD, but I am guessing this won’t be his last time. He’s got the right combination of voice, lyricism, and boom bap. Plus, obtaining verses from the rhyme legend, Craig G does not hurt. The beat from the severely underrated Fel Sweetenberg is heavy handed in a good way.
I became aware of Dirt Platoon because of their association with producer, DJ Brans. They put together an EP (Start Ya Bids) in late 2011 that I thought was very good. These guys embody the terminology, ‘rugged-n-rough’. Here they team up with another favorite, Fel Sweetenberg.
