This is what the world needed right now…K-Beta connecting with DJ J-Scrilla for this fire yet, deeply personal and introspective track. Which really, in turn, makes it even more personal. This make is some extremely powerful material that Beta is talking about here, and Scrilla utilizing this Styx loop over these drums really conveys the point.
Can’t wait to hear more.
Another personal favorite of mine is back to making music. Over the past few years there have been a few sightings of K-Beta dropping a verse or two but now it seems he is engaged in a full resurgence which is great for us hip hop fans, because the man is supremely talented.
Here’s is his self-produced reintroduction to the masses. The man has bars! Check back here for new music from K-Beta as it arrives.
Yo! I purchased this Gary Rue album, Every Shrink’s Wet Dream, and it is teetering on fantastic! The production which is vastly handled by Sultan Mir is on point and Rue can spit some fire. If I was to give an album, a numeric rating, which I very well may start doing we may be looking at an 8.5 out of 10. It’s that good.
To represent this album, I chose the cut Creatures Of Habit because not only is it a fire track that represents hip hop to the fullest, but also features K-Beta. I love Beta. I always have. It’s good to hear him on the mic.
Check this album out! It won’t disappoint!
Sketch McGuiney and company put that hipster rap to bed with this joint from his forthcoming mixtape, Handlebars. We showcased the actual single for Knuckleheads a couple of weeks ago, and now the track gets the video treatment. It’s one of the hardest hitting joints of 2015, bet!
!llmind lends a banger to Sketch McGuiney and his comrades K-Beta and Cuban Link. It’s music like this that lets you know that hip hop is alive and well and when placed in the right hands can still stimulate ear drums. This joint really goes incredibly hard and I am so glad to hear K-Beta on a joint again. I also love the little subtleties in the track such as the line from The Usual Suspects integrated into the verses.
If you are not up on Sketch and this song has piqued your interest, check his joint from a few years ago, Virginia Tec-9. He’s got a new mix tape dropping entitled, Handle Bars. Don’t sleep!
J-Scrilla and K-Beta are two of my favorites and when they combine it’s an absolute win. I really hadn’t given Uptown XO a chance but the more I hear, the more I like. This cut is off of J-Scrilla’s upcoming album, Reel High.
K-Beta is coming back with a vengeance! Now, overall I prefer that joint Pakistan that we talked about a few weeks ago, but this joint surely is solid. A new album from K-Beta by the end of this year seems like a real possibility. And when it drops…it will be considered a necessity!
Oh you forgot how dope K-Beta is? Wake up. Thisis yet another J-$crilla produced banger and K-Beta annihilates every bar. His new album Niggas Know is in the works but I don’t have a release date or an approximation, but you will want to stay tuned.

Here is another album where I thought that the release date would never come. The lead single and title track dropped all the way back in May, but just last week we got ourselves the full length. The album is seventeen tracks in length with a couple of skits thrown in . In those fifteen actual songs there is a lot of dope rhymes and beats provided by Sketch and J-$crilla respectively.
I recently had the opportunity to ask some questions to an artist from the DMV who I think released one of the best album thus far in 2011. K-Beta has been paying dues in hip hop and in life. His album, Inglorious Beta, is a must listen for any hip hop fan. As an emcee, his skill knows no bounds. As a man, he resides in the same struggles and successes that we do. I encourage you to check out the album and also check out what the man has to say about music, the DMV, and life in general.
