Single You Out: Tone Spliff & Young Lo – Mastered The Flow (ft. Recognize Ali)

Young-400x400

I am pretty familiar with Tone Spliff and surely know Recognize Ali at this point with as many as gems as he’s unleashed over the last couple of years.  But it’s about time we all get up on Young Lo.  Wait a minute!   Check that…Young Lo, is actually an artist that we’ve helped promote sometime ago, when he went by the name Emilio Lopez.  He was dope then and it’s really good to hear him doing his thing again.  His flow sounds filthy over this Tone Spliff production, casting mumble rappers over the ledge.

Really dope song, hailing from the forthcoming project, Tape Deck Music, dropping in June.

Single You Out: Gary Rue – Dreams (ft. Recognize Ali x Jon Buell x DJ Trickalome)

Gary Rue has announced a new project and if it is anywhere NEAR as good as the last we are all in for something dope!

That being said, this new single really speaks for itself.  It’s got an incredibly raw and intense sound that was laid by much respected producer, Sultan Mir.  Plus you got some pretty tough wordplay alongside Rue with Recognize Ali (not many names hotter than this one right now) and Jon Buell.  DJ Trickalome then add some ill scratches to make this cut standout all the more.

Really excited to hear this project which I was told will be dropping in June.

Single You Out: Recognize Ali – Miracles (ft. Verbal Kent)

Here’s another single from Recognize Ali’s forthcoming album, Allah’s Favorite, featuring Chicago emcee Verbal Kent and the result is ill. Eyedee laces a stripped down production, yet one that certainly bangs. That production is escorted by scratches implanted by DJ TMB. Kent and Ali prove to be an imposing force on this track. I have high hopes and expectations for this project.

Single You Out: Recognize Ali – Gold Pen Assassin (Prod. by Giallo Point)

Single from Recognize Ali and producer Giallo Point. This is a dope cut. I love the strings Point uses for his production, but that should come as no surprise. His stock has been on the rise over the course of the last couple of years. He is steadily delivering bangers. And when we talk about consistency, you have to give Ali props. Everything he has put out in the last coupe of years has been strong.

New album, Back 2 Mecca, is in the works and I hope we will have it sooner rather than later.
