Single You Out: Jamo Gang – Belushi & Akroyd

a3836555046_10

Holy shit!  This is super dope!   I am highly anticipating this album from Jamo Gang, Walk With Lions, even more so now!  The combination of El Gant, Ras Kass, and J57 seems like an unstoppable force and you and this cut is a prime example.  This track defines ferocity.   J57 puts together a head nodder that infuses a rock rhythm into some boom bap and Gant and Ras Kass put on a verbal demolition for all of us to hear.

Album drops on April 10th!

Shabaam Sahdeeq & J57 – Steady Pace (Video)

Banger brought to visual life by Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 off of their forthcoming project, Precious Stones.  This track is one of those that just represent hip hop to the fullest.   The fresh rhymes from Sahdeeq…the production from J57…and then the scratches by Chinch33 leave a cumulative impression on the masses.   Be prepared for something special when the project drops.

Single You Out: Shabaam Sahdeeq x J57 – Steady Pace

Shabaam

Here’s another dope single that I missed out on a week and a half ago but I have to rep it because it’s dope music from impeccable artists.  Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 have a time-tested formula and deliver to your eardrums raw and unfettered.  I have been rocking with Sahdeeq from the beginning and there will be no stopping that support.  He is a legend and continues to deliver outstanding music.  He and J57 really represent all that is outstanding in hip hop and continue to deliver…at…a…steady…pace.

Precious Stones…due out soon!

Single You Out: Shabaam Sahdeeq – Razor Sharp Vernacular (ft. Born Unique x Tristate) (prod. J57)

Shabaam

Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 have been cooking in the lab and this is the second single from their upcoming project which you know will be flames.    We have a veteran emcee who has been making contributions to hip hop at a phenomenal clip and getting better as the year go by, coupled with a producer who ONLY knows how to put out a premium product.    For this track, Razor Sharp Vernacular, they solicit both coasts by grabbing sixteens from Born Unique and TriState.

2018: Best EPs

So here is a list of my favorite EPs from 2018.   I easily could have extended this list to 25 projects and been really comfortable about that.  However, I really wanted to showcase what I consider to be the best projects in a year where there was so much greatness to consider.  In the end, there were no votes, judges, or etcetera.  This was simply a matter of personal preference.  I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I did.

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.
