Heavy Metal Kings – Bad Hombres (ft. Goretex) (Video)

Black God White Devil is out now! And Bad Hombres unleashes an unholy litany of violent rhymes when Ill Bill and Vinnie Paz connect with Goretex over a Giallo Point production.

I’ve gone through the album once and it may even be better than the original, but you should be the one left to decide.

Check it!

Guerilla Alliance – Warpath Of The Archons (ft. Ill Bill) (Video)

This video from Guerrilla Alliance has been out for a while but I failed to post it and I am trying to rectify that now. The dark production is created by Mac The Rebel with cuts by Tone Spliff. Ill Bill joins the Alliance as they spit bars that reference Iluminati, the Occult, and the Biblical. It’s deep stuff for the enlightened mind.

If you like this cut, you can check out their album, The Dark Rift, out now!

La Coka Nostra – Dark Day Road (Video)

La Coka Nostra (Slaine and Ill Bill) is back with a new album that dropped yesterday, To Thine Own Self Be True. And this is one of many bangers that you will find on the album. The ill lyricism and the production are for everybody, but this video has a darkside about it that maybe your brain shouldn’t wrap itself around. It will take you to a dark place for about three minutes, and it may take a second to get yourself readjusted after watching it.

But do yourself a favor and purchase the album for some unrelenting dope!

La Coka Nostra – Waging War (ft. Rite Hook) (Video)

La Coka Nostra is back like the horsemen of the apocalypse dropping strife and pestilence through your speakers with their latest single, Waging War.    On the track you get dope sixteens from both Ill Bill and Slaine, along with a strong hook from  Rite Hook.  Arcitype is on the beat.

The group’s album, To Thine Own Self Be True, is due out on November 4th and is not to be missed.

Junior Makhno – Clandestinity (2016)

Makhno

In my mind, Junior Makhno, is a top flight producer but sometimes his work might go unnoticed, but here’s an opportunity for you to catch up for the price of FREE.  Clandestinity is a compilation of tracks that Makhno has produced over the course of the last few years with well-known, and some lesser-known artists.    It’s entirely dope.   Listen here if you like!

Note:

I can’t think of an album in recent memory that was this long that maintained this much consistency as does God’s Will from William Cooper.  When listening to this album you will notice a cohesiveness you typically don’t associate with a project of this length.  In my mind that’s just one of the things that makes this album special.    There are so many individual components that contribute to making this album a must listen so let’s take a look at some of those finer points.

Single You Out: Adlib – Destro (ft. Ill Bill) (prod. by Rob The Viking)

Adlib has linked up with Rob The Viking of Swollen Members for his new album, Teenagers From Marz.   Adlib has been making great music for years so don’t let this song surprise you.   But linking up with Rob The Viking for production definitely should make hay in getting his name buzzing even more.   Adlib always has an upfront, no holds bared style, that falls front in center regardless of the production.  It’s time people start taking notice. Oh not to be lost on you, this track features Ill Bill.

Note:

I first heard about El Gant when I saw him in the super group, Infinity Gauntlet.  I hears his verse on the track Anti-Angelz and wrote his name down on a piece of paper so as not to forget.  I then caught him in the group KAMALA and those songs were incredible.   He released a mixtape, and now we have arrived at the time he drops his album, Beast Academy.

Note:

This review for AWKWORD’s World View has been a long time coming.   It’s a long time coming for two reasons:  1) AWKWORD has been working on his magnum opus for well over three years 2)  I took another two months to digest the project in between other releases.  But here we are at the moment of reckoning to determine what makes World View special, or if it’s indeed special at all.

Top 50 Songs (2013)

Disclaimer:  It is hard and challenging to pick 50 tracks from the thousands upon thousands that dropped this year.  It is merely an attempt to list my favorite cuts of 2012.  Click the links to listen to the song!  I think it’s a great list.  There were a lot of great songs crafted this year and I know I left off some good ones.  I listened to 5,000+ tracks from 2012 alone this year, so as an artist, if you made this list you know you are on the forefront of my iTunes!
