Here’s a gem I want to make sure that everyone hears. Producer Greve leads an all-star cast of emcee with a beat that sounds like boom-bap meets the River Dance and the result is hype! I love the use of the fiddle (?) loop. That shit is fire when coupled with this beat and the scratching. Emcees Termanology, Ruste Juxx, Shabaam Sahdeeq, and UG each rip strong sixteens to make a truly compelling track.
I suggest you check out the project, Eternal, as soon as possible.
Here’s another dope single that I missed out on a week and a half ago but I have to rep it because it’s dope music from impeccable artists. Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 have a time-tested formula and deliver to your eardrums raw and unfettered. I have been rocking with Sahdeeq from the beginning and there will be no stopping that support. He is a legend and continues to deliver outstanding music. He and J57 really represent all that is outstanding in hip hop and continue to deliver…at…a…steady…pace.
Precious Stones…due out soon!
Shabaam Sahdeeq and J57 have been cooking in the lab and this is the second single from their upcoming project which you know will be flames. We have a veteran emcee who has been making contributions to hip hop at a phenomenal clip and getting better as the year go by, coupled with a producer who ONLY knows how to put out a premium product. For this track, Razor Sharp Vernacular, they solicit both coasts by grabbing sixteens from Born Unique and TriState.
Here’s some fresh music from the Loyalty Digital camp featuring lyricism from Ras Kass, Shabaam Sahdeeq, and Ed OG rocking over a fun and uptempo production from Fokis. This track means that a Recognize Your Power 2 EP.

I am going to start featuring one album from the previous week every Monday because there is so much good music that I believe is going unheard. And this album from French producer, Astro Vandalist, is something that you guys need to be made aware of. It’s 17 tracks of unadulterated and potent hip hop. The beats really hit hard and you can see by this lineup of emcees that there are some heavy hitters on here.
Check out and cop the whole thing as it is worth every penny, but here are my favorite tracks if you want a sampling!
Shabaam Sahdeeq drops another video single from his album, Timeless: of the collection. This time the subject is the art of graffiti and who better to share the mic duties on a track such as this, than El Da Sensei? The two flip lines discussing their love for the art form over a high energy production from Jake Palumbo (who has been killing it lately).
Of note: Sahdeeq directed the video himself.
Shabaam Sahdeeq and producer Pete Twist take the hip hop masses to church on this new single, Bars. The production packs some extra punch for Sahdeeq’s ‘timeless’ lyricism. The man delivers lyrical punches consistent and in a fury. Few have done it for longer and as consistently dope as he has. Hence the title of his recently release project, Timeless of the Collection.
Shabaam Sahdeeq links up with Planet Asia and Milano Constantine for this single off of DotGoIt.com’s forthcoming 10th Anniversary Mixtape. First off, this track is that fire that stalks you down a dark alley and then throttles your eardrums. The styles of each emcee are really complimentary over this DJ Ready Cee production.
Secondly, huge shout out to DotGotIt!. I think moreso than another blog, they have delivered rawness at an incredibly consistent pace. They haver personally put me on to many dope artists and projects that I may have never checked for. And truly that’s the purpose of what we should be doing. We are not necessarily taste makers, we are just making fans more aware of what’s out there. 10 Years in the game…congratulations!

If I understand the story correctly, producer Endemic Emerald and emcee Skanks The Rap Martyr of Bankai Fam met each four years ago in NYC and there began a mutual respect for each other’s talents. This album, Rapsploitation, is culmination of that admiration and it is us, the fans that reap the benefit.
Here’s a track from Local-MU12’s collective effort, Everyday People. The track features bars from Shabaam Sahdeeq and Punchline, underscored with production from The Manorail. Together they take on the Instagram era and those looking for instant fame in the game.
