Rasheed Chappell & XP The Marxman – Water To Wine (ft. Oran Juice Jones II) (Video)

Rasheed Chappell and XP The Marxman are out to do something remarkable with their new video single, Water To Wine, produced by Slide Beatz. The track is so smooth, while our emcees continue to push their art to the next limit…their way. These are two artists that have paid countless dues to get where they are at and continue to strive. This is dope and inspiring music that can be found on their collaborative album, Rx.

Rasheed Chappell & 38 Spesh – We Outside (ft. Maf & B.A. Badd) (Video)

Rasheed Chappell and 38 Spesh got back cooking in the lab and have a new project on their hands, Checks & Balances. I just copped it yesterday and haven’t given it a full listen yet, but this track probably says it all.

We Outside is another haunting banger produced by 38 Spesh, who I will argue adamantly is one of the TOP producers in the game. Chappell and guests, Maf and B.A. Badd, drop some really impressive bars that show case how dangerous the street corners can really be.

A top choice track for 2021!

Hip Hop Dependency: Best Albums Of 2018

Well, here we are!   Our Top 10 albums from 2018.   I literally listened to hundreds of projects this year so giving you a top ten was no easy task considering not only the number of albums but also the quality.  And these lists are always prone to spark debate and conversation, but that’s part of the fun, isn’t it?  I simply wanted to shine a light on my favorite joints this year and in part give my definitive salute as a fan to these artists and their body of work.   Here we go…Enjoy!!

Rasheed Chappell – My Epic (Video)

Rasheed Chappell’s new album with producer Kenny Dope, First Brick, is going to garner plenty of consideration for Album Of The Year.  And rightfully so.  Every well-executed track seems laid together perfectly up against the other.  It is laid together in much the same fashion as Nas’ Illmatic, in 1993.  Quite the comparison, huh?

Well on this track, My Epic, Chappell puts his life on display for all to see through his music over the drums and horns of Kenny Dope.

Respect!

Single You Out: DJ Low Cut – De Ja Vu (ft. Rasheed Chappell and Soul The American Dream)

DJ Low Cut just dropped his second album, Dead End, on Friday. And let me tell you, this was all it was built up to be. The production bangs throughout the project, and each guest spot is impeccable to me. Some of my absolute favorite emcees are on this joint.

This cut features the oft requested Rasheed Chappell, as people avidly are requesting a second album from this emcee. His flow and voice are so distinctive in a genre that often lacks that element. He implements intelligence and message in his every bar. And this beat from Low Cut showcases everything…the horns…the vocal sample…the guitar…the drums. You get the full repertoire here
