Skanks The Rap Martyr – Speak Soft (ft. RIM) (Video)

Skanks can go toe to toe with ANY emcee in the game currently! His bars are tough as nails but have this intricate quality that sounds anything but basic. I mean, the way he launches and finishes that Covid line is verified proof of lyrical talent. This is also an artist that I feel just keeps getting better and better. He invites another verified wordsmith in RIM to share the limelight and he too knows how to spit some viciousness. The Last Composer does a beautiful job re-working a sample a last heard Marco Polo use many years ago. The cascading piano and the drums with that sample sound like perfection.

Definitely check out out the full length, Out Of Nowhere, now. Every song bangs just as hard as this one. You don’t want to miss out.

M-Dot – Parisian Nights (prod. by DJ Brans) (Video)

M-Dot and Effiscienz?   Yes, please!   M-Dot is legit at the peak of his game and Effiscienz is THE label right now.  It has an outstanding habit of dropping outstanding albums every year.    And you know what it did a week or so ago?  It dropped the appropriate titled, Out Of Nowhere, that features some of the best doing it right now.   DJ Brans on the boards for this one which gives this cut certified status.  Enjoy the duo’s music as they run through Paris like nobody’s business.
