When you see that BigBob is on the production you know you are bound to get a banger! And that holds true with this cut featuring Milano Constatine and Mic Handz. You’ve got the organ in the background taking you to the darkest of places with methodical drums for the two accomplished emcees to rock over. Plus, at the end, you get LDonTheCut chopping it up at the end to literally put the finishing touches on a dope track!
Some new music from The Animal Gang’s, Cayoz Da Emcee and Mic Handz rocking over some production from Sojourn. I really like the choppy and staccato nature of the track. The piano chops and the drums really hit hard and I like how they fade in certain parts of the emcees’ verses which are strong to say the least. This is definitely a track to get you hype this Sunday morning!
Here’s a dope record off of Mic Handz’ project, Blvcklist: Rise of The Daywalker EP. Mic Handz and Rock are giving you that raw hip-hop flavor live and direct on this one and there is nothing weak in the mixture here. It’s all about stand-out deliveries and banging production.
And of note…Mic Handz was three days out of the hospital when making this…that’s commitment to the craft. What are you doing?

I waited for this album for three plus years from Alpha Faktion. Their EP, Truth, Lies, & Audiotape is a staple in a very crowded iTunes Library. So when Azwun, Kraze, and DJ Enyoutee finally dropped their new project, Creative Control my expectations were extraordinarily high. But this is what the team did in the process of making this album while I waited anxiously: They made something that was timeless.

It’s really good to hear some new sounds from the man Skeezo. And to compliment the fact that the man drops dope music, he is releasing these six songs for free. If you are not familiar with this man’s talent, now is the opportune time to study up. Skeezo’s always dropping those tough bars and his choice of production continues to be impeccable.
There are lots of great guest shots on this project as well, but no one is going to outdue the host, bet on that. Check out the tracks below:
I was literally just thinking about not getting any new music from Skeezo music in a while, and look what I find in my inbox? It’s some new dopeness from him and his cohorts Shabaam Sahdeeq and Mic Handz.
This is the initial offering from his forthcoming album, Fouls and Free Throws.
Cool FD does his thing by blending soul and boom bap into sublime fusion while Mic Handz and Ali Starr bring their rhymes front in center in the ‘High Definition’ fashion. The two emcees sound like they’ve been rocking mics together for the longest while in truth, this is there first cut. I hope this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes this union of skill. This is most definitely a live track.
The Animal Pak is a nine man collective who unite on this track to set the official definition of the term ‘posse cut’. If I had to pick a favorite verse I would put it on Senica Da Misfit on the strength of that Jodi Arias line. But good gravy each of these emcees sets this mic ablaze.
This track is off of the mixtape, Animal Planet, which is available now at the extremely affordable price of 5 duckets.
Another single released from Pardon My French, which is the collaborative effort from Macabeats and Cool FD. And they bring plenty of heavy artillery to assist on the mic in the personas of Dready Kruger, Mic Handz, and Dirt Platoon. Definitely peep the album…
This video is full of changes of direction, dope production from Alterbeats, and raw rhymes from Mic Handz. Every video that’s done for an Alterbeats’ cut is just extremely well done. There’s no getting around that. There’s also no denying Mic Handz’ opportunity to achieve his dream. He has the skill, the production behind him, and the cosign from a lot of other dope artists. Let’s see what he does next to make those dreams a reality. Meanwhile, make sure you cop Class Struggle if you have not already.
