M-Dot’s new single, Decadence, takes us through time when he invites emcees Kool G Rap, M-Dot, and Revalation to drop some verses over a beat from The Might V.I.C. The production, for my ears, harkens back to 1990s, with losts of synth elements, appropriately placed horns, and scratches from DJ Jean Maron applying LL Cool J samples. Each emcee picks takes on a time frame and takes us back to that place from their own perspective. The concept is articulated perfectly and I am positive all will enjoy.
A super fresh cut from Revalation and GoD iLLa’s collaborative project, RevILLutionAries. First and foremost, I LOVE this beat from L.O.B. Super dope vocal sample and those drums just knock. Secondly, the lyricism is undeniably potent! Both emcees are dope wordsmiths in their own right, and then you have M-Dot leading off with with his unmistakable sixteen. It’s a great cut on the merits of the music alone, but the video element, really just makes the track fun, and adds an extra entertainment value.
I copped the album but have yet to check it, but if this track is any indicator, it’s chocked full of all the ill stuff we have come to love!
Here’s a tight posse cut from the EMS unit off of Kore’s new album, Koreiculum, which is out now for purchase. Kore not only wrote the lyrics to the album but also produced all the tracks as well showing a great deal of talent in doing so. Of course, I am going to partial to this EMS posse cut, not only because of the depth of the talent pool, but the production sticks with you.
DZ The Unknown teams up the EMS team (M-Dot, Revalation, and Kore) for this video single, Lucid. The production from C-Lance may be one of my favorite beats from him recently. The lyricism is also very rich with each artists delivering their own measure of talent to the table.
This track is off of DZ’s project, Observe and Adapt which has yet to receive a release date.
Here’s a single from Cloud City Project’s album, No White Flags, which has been out for a couple of months now and remains exceptionally ill. If you love that hardcore boom bap, this is going to be right up your alley. This beat is like street gospel right here and all of the emcees really deliver the goods on the quality of bars, plus you get that EMS flavor when Revalation knocks out his sixteen.
New video single off of Superior’s latest album, The Journey. And this video features none other than EMS cohorts, M-Dot and Revalation. The song, Earn It, is the perfect track for these guys to put a little perspective on the game. So many acts are just flash in the pans who have paid absolutely no dues. They expect just to show up and have it handed to them. EMS perfectly embodies the mentality that hard work and talent pay off.
Cop this album. Lots of good joints on here.
Sometimes music just has to be a vehicle for our emotions and that’s what we have here from Revalation. This was song was admittedly one of the hardest for Rev to write as he reflected upon his cousin’s recent violent death. It’s passionate and personal and if you can’t feel this then you are just plain numb.
If you are interested in making a contribution to assist the family with funeral expenses. There is a GoFundMe page up.
Hip Hop Dependency family, Cayoz, is back with a new single that is simply put…fuego. He’s teaming up with producer O*Zee (who is a dope emcee by the way) and Mayhem and Revalation of EMS. It’s a union of dopeness. Then you got Jabbathakut chopping it up, making this the sure shot.
Relay on the mic!
Man, it really is hard to contemplate a hip hop world with out Praverb. As a matter of fact, I have just been avoiding thinking about it ever since he passed away over a year ago. What a great person and inspiration to so many…
There is a whole project that just released featuring dope matieral from Praverb, so make sure you check that out.
New jawn from the EMS camp! Slicenberg invites Revalation to drop some bars across his latest creation, Pros & CONS. The twinge of the guitar in the production gives it a taste of the blues while wrapped around the boom-bap drums. Meanwhile, Rev truly drops some tough bars at one point making it Biblical referencing Old Testament kingpin Hezekiah.
This joint is destined for Slicenberg (Soulslicers) new project, Keep It Sample.
