And at this point I am just going to say it:  This mixtape is top notch.  If you want fifteen tracks that knock speakers with no filler of fru-fru material, St. Fatrick’s Day is the joint you are going to want to own.

Note:

Here is another album where I thought that the release date would never come. The lead single and title track dropped all the way back in May, but just last week we got ourselves the full length.  The album is seventeen tracks in length with a couple of skits thrown in .  In those fifteen actual songs there is a lot of dope rhymes and beats provided by Sketch and J-$crilla respectively.

12. Disastrous Occurrence (ft. Raw Dismemberment & Reef the Lost Cauze)
13. Choosing Death (ft. Crypt the Warchild & Reef the Lost Cauze)

Note:

This is not meant to be a review.  This is just me lending support to a very talented artist.  King Syze compiled some of his previous work in this release and therefore it’s really not what I would consider “reviewable”.  Much of this material I had heard before, but some of it is new to me.   It is all very dope though.  King Syze has had two very dope albums in the past (Syzemology and The Labor Union).  Both of those releases did not receive the shine that they deserved and for one reason or another King Syze stepped back from music for a while.

But now he is getting back in the studio and thought he would assemble this compilation to re familiarize folks with his music while getting started on a new project.  Definitely make sure you download this if you are not up on King Syze and await his future project.

Note:

I have been waiting for something of this audible velocity to hit my ear drums.  Heavy Metal Kings is intelligent, sadistic, and raw.  Most of the songs found there within will hit you like a bullet train.  With that being said, I understand why this release may not be for everybody.  This is not the album that you are going to get good vibes from.  This is not something you are going to chill to.  You are not going to rock this at a party. This is something for your senses to devour.

Check The Discography: Leedz Edutainment

I awoke this morning to Leedz putting it in the air via Twitter that eight of the albums/mixtapes put out on his label were being offered free.  I am assuming this is a recent development, though I could certainly be wrong.  I know I paid good money for them and now you can DL some of them without spending a dime.  These releases are chocked full of dope beats and raw lyricism.  You are going to find something among the collection that you will love.  Heck, I love most of them.  My favorites of the bunch are  Rite Hook’s E.ye A.ssume D.amage and the Write Off Mixtapes Vol.1 and 2.  You will see tons of guest shots on these releases, including Slaine, Amadeus The Stampede, Reef The Lost Cause, J The S,  Ill Bill and many more.  I realize this is not an ‘artist’ discography so to speak but I wouldn’t sleep on this  collection if I were you!  Also, make sure you remember to drop some dollars on one of these artist’s shows or retail products if you like what you hear.  It’s essential to contribute financially when capable.    Meanwhile, enjoy….

You can click the cover of the particular album you wanted to check out and be linked to the Bandcamp site where you can stream the music to see if it’s for you, but for my part it is a no brainer:  Pick them all up!
