Here’s another single from GQ Nothin Pretty’s new album, Animation. Oh you don’t have that! Big dummy. This joint is raw. I steadily bump his joint with Tragedy Khadafi, High Quota, as one of the best tracks this year. And this track with King Magnetic and Ruste Juxx is right on par with that. Trilian on the beat!
King Magnetic is one of my favorite emcees. Period. As an artist, he delivers time and time again and never spit anything less than sickly. You put him over a DJ Low Cut production, with Nix’on on the cuts, you have a flawless victory.
If you enjoy this jawn, then I suggest you pick up Low Cut’s new album, Dead End.
There’s holding these bars back from King Magnetic as he rocks over this Explizit One banger. What is a brawl for some is just slap boxing to Mag on this track as he has one of the strongest flows in the game, hands down. I can listen to his album over and over again. They present maximum replay value.
Speaking of albums, make sure you check his new one, Everything Happens 4 A Reason dropping March 31st.
This is one of the dopest songs from Pawz One’s F.U.C.K! album that dropped last year. It features King Magnetic and an assortment of fresh lyricism that brings death to the competition.
If you are unfamiliar with Pawz One, I think it’s time for you get up on the man’s music. This is also the perfect time to mention Magnetic has a new project dropping on March 31st, entitled, Everything Happens 4 A Reason. Be ready for that!
Tuff Guy is the lead single off the newly released album, Timing Is Everything. King Magnetic is one of those artists that has been putting in consistent work for the longest time. His mixtapes and the Everything Is A Gamble series has put out more bangers than most other people’s entire discography. His projects can play from start to end and while I just copped the new album, Timing Is Everything will be no different in that capacity.
Tuff Guy is just a prime example of what this artist is capable of. He flips over a banger, describing himself as not a tough guy, but capable of being really menacing if push ever came to shove. And he calls out all those who are tough when in the company of others, but really pussy when it comes to handling business by yourself.
This is one album that everybody needs to support this year. You have to reward an artist who has been consistent as he has over the years. Let’s back him up!
In light of Ferguson and a multitude of injustices that have been contrived by law enforcement and the legal system, King Magnetic licks off some shots over some Marco Polo production. You can only stay on the sidelines for so long, and the art of hip hop can surely provide a venue for the rage and anger people feel.
Look out for more from King Magnetic very soon.
If you haven’t been able to figure this out from my other posts and features: I LOVE the production that is coming out of France. There is so much talent coming from our European brethren and a lot of it is incorporated in the name, Sick Digger Crew. The group is compromised of beatsmiths, Al’Tarba, DJ Nix’on, Junior Makhno, Ugly Tony, Fonka, Mistamaff, Ganjak, and I.N.C.H. Three of those aforementioned names have been featured on HHD numerous times before. They are crafting a FREE project for us to enjoy entitled Overlords. As soon as I have a release date for that I will be sure to pass it on, meanwhile enjoy this banger featuring King Magnetic, Dirt Platoon, and Bonnie Li. This music is serious!
Fire Power is an appropriate name for this song. The beat, samples, and scratches all add the appropriate level of intensity for these gritty emcees. Saigon, Blaq Poet, and GQ Nothin’ Pretty all bring their unique styles and voices to the track and leave an indelible imprint. There is an updated version of the track that adds a verse from King Magnetic and that will appear on DJ Tray’s forthcoming album, BWTG.
The Soulslicers released Slice Of Life about a month ago which might have had something to do with the release of this video. WTF Happened is featured on that mixtape, as well as being featured on the 2012 release from King Magnetic, Everything’s A Gamble Vol. 3.
Magnetic is one of the most consistent artists out right now. He’s got three albums and a slew of mixtapes under his belt and they all knock.
Definitely check the aforementioned projects when you get a chance.
I don’t have time for a full review of these EPs but I really find it necessary to showcase the material in these two pieces. I think they have gone largely unnoticed and they are too dope not to give a fair listen.
The Grim Reaperz are a production team out of France. (Yes, I know…France is killin’ it right now when it comes to production.) Too rock over their heavy hitting productions they have enlisted the likes of RA The Rugged Man, Bekay, Shaz Illyork, Reks, Diabolic, King Magnetic, and a slew of other dope artists.
So if you are a fan of any or all these artists, I am sure that you will dig these EPs. Vol. 1 dates back to July 2012 while Vol. 2 just dropped within the last month or so. Enjoy…and cop if you like what you hear.
