Man, if Jaysaun, Ed OG, and Slaine decide to drop an album you can call it game over for the competition! I mean check out what they do over this Teddy Roxpin production! This is probably one of the ills competitions in the game and I can only hope that lightning strikes twice when it comes to an album.
As it is, this is off of Jaysaun’s forthcoming project…and that’s going to be certified ill in it’s own right.

It is no secret around these parts that M-Dot is a much respected name. We feature nearly all of his music. But it’s also been a minute since he has released an album and in the end it’s time to take account, because creating an album is a much different endeavor than dropping singles or mixtapes. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding.
But in the end, M-Dot, met and exceeded expectations with egO anD The eneMy. The album remains potent from track one to track seventeen. There is no “fluff”. There are no trivial skits. There are no weaknesses to be found in the music.
I am not going to speak too much on this latest cut from M-Dot’s album, egO anD The eneMy. After all, I have a review dropping for the project very shortly. But to put it simply, posers are put on blast for narrating false hood tales and impersonating tough guys. M-Dot and Jaysaun are putting the word out: you are not to be trusted!
Project: Before The Enemy Compilation
- Shine (ft. Method Man, Dominique Larue, and Katy Gunn)
- True Lies (Remix) (ft. Camp Lo and Tribeca)
- The Rea & The Raw (ft. Jaysaun)
- 123 Flow
- You Don’t Know About (ft. Masta Ace)
While we all eagerly anticipate M-Dot’s album, Ego and The Enemy, he has released a teaser project once again showing the assortment and diversity of talent. This is old hat for us here at Hip Hop Dependency, but I am sure there are more than just a few of you who will appreciate these dope eight tracks.
You can see the company he keeps on some of these tracks and let me assure you, he was never out shined on any of these cuts. I hope you all can appreciate that talent as much as we do.
Stay tuned for more information on the album!
This new video and song from Jaysaun is some serious business. He is putting several people on blast. He’s got a message for the Catholic Church, Obama, and the Boys In Blue. They are not safe from Karma. Really dope and powerful track coming from his upcoming album, Kill Ya Boss.
This is the best and toughest song off of the Snowgoon’s latest album, Black Snow 2. The lineup of M-Dot, Jaysaun, and Journalist 103 is the perfect blend of rugged n’ raw and elite lyricism. All three of these emcees need some solo projects though. Desperate need.
Reef The Lost Cauze collabs with Masta Ace and Jaysaun for the banger Power Moves. I am not sure what project this joint is destined for but it certainly bangs. Any time I see Jaysaun providing guest bars, I know the joint is about to get bodied. The man has no soft verses. Psych Major on the beat. Enjoy!
New single lifted from the Snowgoons’ latest project, Black Snow 2. I just listened to the album a few days ago and I think its the Goons best work in a minute, so make sure you check that out. Still Real And Raw brings together that vintage German boom-bap with the rhyme stylings of M-Dot, Jaysaun, and Journalist 103. Everyone who follows HHD knows M-Dot’s prowess. Jaysaun can spit just a few bars a year and make a headliner. Journalist 103 has at least one classic album under his belt and severely underrated one as well. So is that ill enough? Enjoy this collabo!

I can say, without hesitation, that Ruste Juxx has been on of the most prolific artists in the last few years. He has been featured donzens of times on other people’s projects. He has been on a a blistering pace of almost releasing two albums a year and V.I.C. is his second of 2012. His first project this year was with French producer Kyo Itachi, entitled Hardbodied Hip Hop. That album was outstanding and I thought Juxx had outdone himself with that effort but, V.I.C. expounds even further on that effort, making it one of the top notch albums of 2012. I believe one of the reasons this album shines so bright is the beat selection from producer, The Arcitype. He is able to fuse different sounds together for an album that I really hadn’t heard before and that only enables Ruste Juxx to showcase even more of what he can do with the microphone.
I am surprised more people haven’t picked up on this cut and the album for that matter. It’s pretty fresh. This cut is from KNOiota’s new album Kno Now Or Never.
