Damn this is one of the toughest joints of 2022 with Old Man 80zz on the boards lacing lava rocks. The drums and vocal sample set a perfect stage. And the emcees, Phat Kat, Asun Eastwood, and Recognize Ali all show up in a big way with their bar work. Asun however really stands out to me. His flow with this beat has such a vicious sound. Tell me I am wrong. This record gets maximum rotation.
Recognize Ali continues to mesh his talent with a relentless work ethic. As he prepares his latest offering, Underground King II, he his us with the soulfully laced single, Soul Grit. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you who produced it as it’s a bonus track from the album with no listed credits, but it goes heavy with the horns, as Ali stake his clame to being one of the best to currently do it!
The new album drops on November 5th which isn’t too far at all. Stay informed!
Recognize Ali is staying busy with yet another release on it’s way, Underground King II. And while that does not have an official release date as of yet, we do get the frist single, Godly Men, featuring Vinnie Paz and Ill Bill, produced by Sultan Mir.
And when ever Rec Ali puts his pen to work you know you are going to get a high quality music. This is certainly no different, only made moreso working alongside these legends.
I listened to Recoginize Ali’s album, Recognize The Light, in it’s entirety yesterday. and this single really typifies the vibe of the entire album. It has such a soulful element about it, yet knocks relentlessly with big beats, tight scratches, and Ali’s hard hitting lyricism. This joint is produced by Karnate. Definitely need to check out the project.
Recognize Ali let’s the mind spray with an assortment of questions with his single, Why. Produced by DJ Malefactor, this song has a soulful vibe, but also hit’s hard, much to do with Ali striking on a lot of key points and offering thoughtful inquiries. This artist is a beast on the mic, and this is one of his best if you ask me. He keeps on impressing. This song is a major win.
You can hear this and more when his new album, Recognize Tha Light, drops on July 30th.
Ramson Badbonez is a London base producer, and has an album dropping on August 27th entitled, Lead By Example. And here we have the title track featuring Recognize Ali, Skyzoo, and Juxx Diamondz. Heavy on the snare and horn, with this bevy of emcees, this joint is a sure thing. Definitely looking forward to the full length later this summer.
Bronze Nazareth and Recognize Ali have this new album out that you need to get familiar with, Season of the Se7en. Both of these artists have established themselves as ‘elite’ in their own craft and they unite to bring you something rather spectacular. As you can hear on the track, God Aura, both artists are bringing that energy to the craft as Nazareth laces a banger with horns orchestrating the way, while Ali fires gritty line after gritty line at you. You certainly need to peep.
Dueling Experts (Verbal Kent and Recognize Ali) are back for another round of dopeness with the impending release of their sophomore project, DE2: Sand The Floor. These artists sound really good together with commanding voices and flows. Very complimentary skill sets. And this beat by Lord Beatjitzu is incredibly strong and anchors the duo well.
Make sure you check the album when it drops on December 11th.
This is a video combo single from the Snowgoons’ recent album, Snowgoons Infantry. It’s two dope tracks mashed together to showcase some of the talent that’s contained on their many highly regarded projects. The first track features (once again) Recognize Ali, Lord Goat, and DJ TMB. The second cut features bars from Ren Thomas who is just vicious with his sixteens these days.
This track from Kut One’s new project, Live Wires, is sheer and unadulterated fire. The strings and symphonic sound build such an amazing intensity and it features one of my favorite emcees in Recognize Ali. It’s a fire starter to be sure.
It’s my favorite track from the project but certainly not the only dope one. The whole thing is insanely good. It was honestly tough to pick a joint to feature so do yourself a favor and cop the whole thing!
