Mayhem & Soulslicers – World We Live In (ft. Akrobatik) (Video)

Man, I feel like I have been waiting for the new Soulslicers and Mayhem project for nearly a year, and this track with Akrobatik makes the anticipation all the greater.

If you are familiar with the Soulslicers production team, you know you are going to get top notch beats that are steepened in boom-bap. And when EMS vet, Mayhem links up with Akrobatik, the listener receives a bleak view of this bitter world we live in. It’s stark realism.

Can’t wait for the album, Soul It May Seem, coming soon!

Single You Out: Cayoz – It Dont Stop (Feat. Mayhem, Revalation & DJ JabbaThaKut)

Hip Hop Dependency family, Cayoz, is back with a new single that is simply put…fuego. He’s teaming up with producer O*Zee (who is a dope emcee by the way)  and Mayhem and Revalation of EMS.  It’s a union of dopeness.  Then you got Jabbathakut chopping it up, making this the sure shot.

Relay on the mic!

Mayhem & Soulslicers – Patriots (ft. M-Dot, Edo G, and Big Shug) (Video)

Mayhem & Soulslicers release the video for a single they released a month or so ago for the Boston anthem, Patriots.  And while Tom Brady and company may have been knocked out of the playoffs, Mayhem and his affiliates definitely represent.  Mayhem, Edo G, and M-Dot each represent a color from their favorite football team and paint a very vivid portrait of what it means to be from The Bean.

This cut is from the forthcoming album, Soul It May Seem.

Single You Out: Mayhem & The Soulslicers – Patriots (ft. Edo G, M-Dot & Big Shug) (Prod. The Soulslicers)

This is the second single from Mayhem and The Soulslicers collaborative album, Soul It May Seem.  I do have to say that I am not a Patriots fan of any sort but I will support these guys for the duration.  Patriots is a tribute to Boston and sports team.  It also showcases the gang’s creativity with M-Dot, Edo G, and Mayhem all taking on a color of the franchise to show their support.  Big Shug lends his talents and skills to doing the hook.  Very creative material.

 

 

Single You Out: EMS – The Spittin’ Dead (Produced By Soul Infected)

The EMS ensemble gather together to spit over an adaptation of The Walking Dead’s television theme song.  And if any unit could pull off something like this, I trust non other than EMS.  They have diverse enough lyrical styles to keep the track bouncing and entertaining.

This track serves as Revalation’s second single for his forthcoming EP, Emergency Broadcast.

Single You Out: M-Dot – Today (ft. E.M.S.)

This song just made my week.  No matter what happens the rest of the week, this song from M-Dot and company is a major win!  The bass line on this jawn made my neck sore.   And the flows…my god the flows, were impeccable.  M-Dot can stay silent for months and then drop a gem like this and instantly remind us of his greatness.  And I meant to use that word…great.  He has a really sophisticated way with words when rocking the mic. The jam definitely has an old school appeal but easily something I could see getting some universal love.

Jake LaDOTta drops for free tomorrow and may knock some of these end of the year lists on their heads.  Check back at DJ Booth for the good word…

Reckonize Real – Beyond Recognition (ft. Reks, Mayhem & ToneDeff CuTz) (Video)

I featured the single for this cut about four months ago but now we get the video single and of course we will share that too.  This is in my opinion the best track off of Reckonize Real’s album, Dopamine.  Mayhem and Reks rip on a very addictive rhythm.  It’s a song you can play over and over without it getting old.

Single You Out: Tribeca – Forever Rain (ft. Mayhem (EMS) & Lisa Denise) (prod By 2’s & BlackBrown)

Mayhem from the EMS camp broke me off with this new track  by Tribeca that he is featured on.    Forever Rain is something that us regular folk can really find solace in.  Sometimes we feel like circumstances and conditions are constantly against us, but we still persevere.  The chorus by Lisa Denise is also a highlight here.  Her voice relates to the hope that the emcees are referring to.

Single You Out: Reckonize Real – Beyond Recognition (ft. Reks and Mayhem)

Reckonize Real’s new album, Dopamine, is dropping  on October 29th and Beyond Recognition is another single from that project.  Reks and Mayhem (dude has been staying busy this year)  each throw an ill 16 but the beat on this track is what’s going to grab you.  In my mind the production sounds like a meld of hip hop and sounds from India.  Plus the cuts from  ToneDeff 2Cutz are precise and that adds the right finishing touch to the track.   This will stay in rotation for sure.
