Single You Out: DJ K.O. – Drunk Girls (ft. MadKem, Silent Knight & Jered Sanders)

 

New single from the EMPBeTheTeam album by DJ K.O.  The emcees articulate stories about that girl who had a little too much to drink in the evening.  The production mellow, perhaps even a little soulful, while lyrically it’s all just a little humorous to hear the emcees discussing their tales of the drunk girl.

Single You Out: DJ K.O. – Stand Up! (ft. Silent Knight, Jered Sanders, Justin Bates, K-Hill, East, MadKem)

There are many artists that deserve your support, but perhaps none so more, as DJ K.O.  You remember DJ K.O. right?  He’s the man who helped bring you over 5o dope hip hop tracks for FREE last year.   He is also the man who dropped one of the illest albums from a producer…ever.  Picture This dropped in 2008 and featured countless dope producers and emcees and now he is back, four years later with his sophomore effort…EMPBeTheTeam.

This track definitely has the funky factor behind it and brings the entire Elementality team so check the cut, and then make sure to cop the album when it drops.

Note:

These are the dayz of rot!‘, the words resonate as you begin listening to MadKem’s first album, Charles Workman.  The track (Dayz Of Rot) has a tribal, yet funky feel to it.   It starts of with what sounds like some tribal chant, then hit you off with some bongo drums, and then the finger snaps.  The track has a feel unlike any other that I have heard in 2011.   The use of vocal samples and a very organic production make this a track that you will remember.  MadKem drops lyrics that put the listener on to what brought him into the rhyme game in the first place and where he is going with it.  Everything about this track is exceptional.  Madwreck definitely deserves props for his work behind the boards on this joint.
