Single You Out: OnlyOne – Threat & Promise

OnlyOne rips a scathing social commentary over a six minute production from Smoke M2D6. Most of the lyricism deals with the police and their brutality in the Black Community. It’s an interesting take from a person outside the racial context but he hits everything like hammer to nail. He also does it with the typical flair that Only has become known for.


Illmaculate & OnlyOne – Only & Ill (Video)

Title cut from Illmaculate and OnlyOne’s new album, Only & Ill.  These guys have been making music for quite a while and you can see that chemistry shine through on a track like this.  The whole album is ill.  There are so many dope tracks that will resonate with you.   Chase Moore is responsible for this beat.

Illmaculate & OnlyOne – GATTACA (Official Music Video) feat. J-Rome

OnlyOne and Illmaculate are known for making great music but this cut is among the most premium.   This is just some really good music period.   Chase Moore continues the string of flawless production with this concoction and J-Rome blesses the hook to complete the effect.  Meanwhile the two emcees drop incessantly dope lyricism that will at moment leave you a little slack jawed.

This is just a pre-emptive strike of what’s to come when they drop their album this summer, Only & Ill.

Illmaculate & OnlyOne – Marathon (prod. by Chase Moore)

OnlyOne and Illmaculate are back at it and knifing through this ill production from Chase Moore.  The pairing has always been one of the most formidable in hip hop and it’s great to see them bringing in 2015 the right way.  OnlyOne still remains one of our favorite wordsmiths on the site and on this song you can see why…Can’t wait to hear the full project.

This is not a review of any sort.  This is just ‘us’ letting ‘you’ know that this available now.  Bagwell is a favorite and a mainstay on HHD and it’s only fitting for me to encourage you to go pick this up.  90% of the music coming out these days, you have heard before.  There’s a lot of the same old cafeteria cooking going on in the lab these days.  But when something unique comes out, we’ve got to support.  Bagwell is among a very minute population of artists who consistently gives us quality of a different ilk and always makes it fresh for the fans.   So make sure you cop from the Bandcamp page now and check back here later, when I will have more time to do an official review!

Single You Out: Goldini Bagwell – Read All About It (ft. Iame, OnlyOne, and Illmaculate)

It’s so good to hear a few Sandpeople brethren on a track together.   Read All About It has epic written all over it with Pmpee giving the track a very regal production.  That seems appropriate when you have this NorthWest royalty blessing the track.   The blending of styles on this joint is pretty damn amazing (as it is always).   Such divergent flows and styles and they always come out sounding vintage!

Goldini Bagwell’s new EP, Secondhand Smoke – The Extended Cut drops June 24th but you can pre-order an assortment of packages right now.


Single You Out: IllMaculate & OnlyOne – Know My Name (ft. Bigg K) (prod. By Chase Moore)


I am guessing this is another single from the album, Ill & Only though I could of course be wrong.  Regardless it’s dope.    Chase Moore is killing it with these beats while Bigg K also represents with Illmaculate and OnlyOne.   Fresh like __________________!  (use your imagination)
