Jay Royale – Carlito And Kleinfeld (ft. Kool G Rap) (Video)

One of the toughest and dopest joints to come out this year, and sure to be penned into some top end-of-the-year lists is Jay Royale’s new single, Carlito and Kleinfeld featuring Kool G Rap. Producer Ray Sosa has some sinister intents with his production here featuring those snapping drums, piano loops, and crescendo synth. Plus, those sample chops from DJ Grazzhoppa are so very precise and well timed.

Lyrically…c’mon KGR is a legend for a reason. His bars are FOREVER timeless and that’s no exaggeration. He sounds just as good now as he ever has, and Jay Royale shows precise execution in his sixteen, continuing to build upon his already buzzing name and talent.

Phenomenal.

Note:

M-Dot has been showcased numerous times on our site, but the day he drops anything less than stellar, is the day his project doesn’t reach these pages. But my friends, today is not that day. For 10 plus years we rep him as an artist because of what this project, Dining In Dystopia, embodies. It is one part sheer skill and going for the jugular, and another part personal testament to what it takes to achieve this level of recognition.

Single You Out: M-Dot (ft. Kool G Rap x Revalation) (prod. by The Mighty V.I.C.)

M-Dot’s new single, Decadence, takes us through time when he invites emcees Kool G Rap, M-Dot, and Revalation to drop some verses over a beat from The Might V.I.C. The production, for my ears, harkens back to 1990s, with losts of synth elements, appropriately placed horns, and scratches from DJ Jean Maron applying LL Cool J samples. Each emcee picks takes on a time frame and takes us back to that place from their own perspective. The concept is articulated perfectly and I am positive all will enjoy.

Kool G Rap & 38 Spesh – Dead Or Alive (ft. Cormega) – Dead Or Alive (Prod Midnite) (Video)

Son Of G Rap is one of my most anticipated albums this year, ever since I head the first single, Upstate 2 Queens.  I loved the way Kool G. Rap and 38 Spesh exchanged their bars over that beat.  That song is in steady rotation.

This song is extremely dope in its own right, adding Cormega for the chorus.   The emcees go in on the struggle and the survival tactics needed to make it in this day and age.  There are a multitude of dope bars and visuals painted on this track.  Speaking of the visuals:  I am really feeling the animation here.  Midnite on the production.

Album drops for everyone on July 20th, and you get the early release on the 6th if you cop the CD.

 

Single You Out: Kool G Rap – Running (ft. Termanology and Saigon) (Prod MoSS) (Video)

Who better to echo the codes of the street than the one and only Kool G Rap, Termanology, and Saigon? Everyone is gunning for the spot…for your spot. So stick to the protocol, ya dig? This song is tough. MoSS has got the horns blowing and the drums a snapping on this joint.

There’s so much more from G Rap, and you need to check out his album, Return Of The Don.

Single You Out: Taiyamo Denku – Stone Cold (ft. Kool G Rap and War Beyah)

Taiyamo Denku and producer D-Cypha recently released a new album, Radioactive.   The album exclusively contains bangers.  D-Cypha has a real knack from collecting dope sounds and making phenomenal music.  Denku, over the years, has proved adaptable to those very same rhythms that Cypha creates.  In an album full of features, he sounds comfortable on every track.  This track featuring Kool G Rap and War Beyah is the perfect illustration, because sometimes we all run out of fucks to give.

 

Single You Out: Taiyamo Denku – Ice Cold (ft. Kool G Rap x Vinnie Paz) (prod. by DCYPHA)

It’s hard to argue with the dopeness found in this song.  Taiyamu Denku and Australian producer DCYPHA are out to create some night stalker music with their collaborative album, SUPERNATURAL.  The album is going to drop on June 25th with a slew of dope guest spots.   As a matter of fact, with Kool G Rap and Vinnie Paz on this joint, I am pretty sure that someone lost their life in the making of this song…Fire!!!

Nutso – I Plead The 5th (2013)

Album: I Plead The 5th

Note:

Listen.  I am going to make this easy to understand.  If you like that raw, grimy, New York boom-bap, then Nutso is that dude.  I don’t know if there is a doper delivery in the Rotten Apple than his.  Sure there are people who have clever rhyme schemes and intricacies but when it comes to straight flow and emotion, Nutso  has got it on lock.
