Single You Out: Purpose – Limitless Styles (ft. Saigon) (prod. by B.B.Z. Darney)

DdZTN6VW4AEjz2u.jpg-large

Oh yeah!!!!!   This song has got me so hype!   Purpose (Tragic Allies) has a new project coming our called The Quintessential dropping soon and the whole body of work is produced by B.B.Z. Darney.

Darney is one of my favorite producers over the course of the last two or three years.  He only produces brilliance and Purpose and Saigon each drop substantially dope verses in between scratches from DJ Philogic.

Whole joint is an A+

Single You Out: Kool G Rap – Running (ft. Termanology and Saigon) (Prod MoSS) (Video)

Who better to echo the codes of the street than the one and only Kool G Rap, Termanology, and Saigon? Everyone is gunning for the spot…for your spot. So stick to the protocol, ya dig? This song is tough. MoSS has got the horns blowing and the drums a snapping on this joint.

There’s so much more from G Rap, and you need to check out his album, Return Of The Don.

Single You Out: DJ Tray – Fire Power (ft. Saigon, Blaq Poet & GQ Nothin’ Pretty)

Fire Power is an appropriate name for this song.  The beat, samples, and scratches all add the appropriate level of intensity for these gritty emcees.   Saigon, Blaq Poet, and GQ Nothin’ Pretty all bring their unique styles and voices to the track and leave an indelible imprint.   There is an updated version of the track that adds a verse from King Magnetic and that will appear on DJ Tray’s forthcoming album, BWTG.

Note:

I make no secrets on this blog about the artists I am feeling.  And usually, the pattern repeats, as consistency appeals to me.  This brings us to the latest work by Boston artist, Rite Hook.  I have spoken to his appeal before but to recap previous posts, Rite Hook has great song making ability.    He is able to put intelligent and emotional music together.  He also has become a master at being able to construct dope hooks.  His dark crooning really ties his songs together.
