Note:

I really want to close out 2013, but I can not do so without cranking out one more review for a very dope album.  The first thing heads will notice about the album Daes & Times is the production credits.  There are some heavyweight names creating beats for One Dae.  When listeners see names like Statik Selektah, Marco Polo, Analogic, Domingo, and M-Phazes, they are bound to pay attention.  But as the man, Mike Zoot once said “a wack rhymer can kill a raw beat”.  In this case the opposite is true: One Dae accentuates what these beatsmiths provide making this album memorable.

Single You Out: Sean Price & M-Phazes – Dump In The Gut

PvdFiNA

 

Sean Price linking with M-Phazes?   Ain’t nothing wrong with that.  Dump In The Gut  intertwines Sean P’s signature flow and punchlines with Phazes’ blazing horns and snapping drums.  However, this is just the prelude to their full length project dropping in just a couple of weeks.  Land of the Crooks is dropping on December 17th.  Nice surprise.

Awar – Soul Caliber (Video)

I am not sure what project this will be on.  I will try to find out.  It has been a long time since I have heard some new Awar music and I am anxious to hear a new album.  This cut doesn’t help me with anticipation.   This track and video fall in the beyond real category.  The story to this track is definitely something for folks to feel. The track is produced by the venerable M-Phazes.  Stay tuned for more music from Awar.
