Single Yout Out: C-Rayz Walz – The Sound Of Guns (ft. Echo 1 x Dro Pesci x Oktober Zero)

C-Rayz Walz, independent hip hop artist, and legend if you ask me, has a new project out, Bad Fame: Music To Run With. The project dropped a few days ago, and it’s really dope. But in particular I am enamored with this J-Scrilla produced gem that features, Echo 1, Dro Pesci, and Oktober Zero. It’s just a banging track and that snaking sample Scrilla uses is sooooo on-point!

 

Single You Out: Silent Someone – Lab 82 (ft. EL Da Sensei, Oktober Zero, and Shaz IllYork)

Lab

This is a release that has crept up on me because I don’t even know who Silent Someone is.  But now I have a better idea after checking out this tight production.   The somber vocal sample combined with those drums is a nice twist.  I also like how the beat alternates every so often giving it a different sound and an appeal.   Lyrically, Shaz Illyork, El Da Sensei, and Oktober Zero pay homage to the art of graffiti and do so properly.

Silent Someone’s new album, I Have Company is due any day so just keep your eyes peeled.
