Jealousy & Envy is just one of the many dope tracks off of MoSS’ new album, Marching to the Sound of My Own Drum. I love the drums and the horns utilized for this production. And Termanology and Slaine maintain their cool with the haters and detractors to their very own success. Some really nice flows and bars with this music.
Here comes another dope single given the video touch from Termanology’s latest album, Shut Up And Rap, produced by Billy Loman. This track is all about riding in the darkness with the depths of your depravity. Slaine and Artisin each join Term in dropping rhymes from the abyss. Check the album if you have not already.
Slaine’s new album, The King Of Everything Else, dropped today and I have to tell you that it’s the best music he’s put out in a while. I really enjoyed listening to each cut and the album as a whole. Bobby Be Real is an excellent joint to feature from the album that is brought to life in this video. TechN9ne and Madchild are invited on the cut to narrate part of Slaine’s nightmare. This is one of the better video productions I have seen in 2014. I strongly suggest that you listen to his album.
Rite Hook’s album, From The Wrong, drops on Monday. This is the last single to drop before the arrival of the album, and it’s a doozy. Lu Balz’ production it really effective. It’s not so big that it ‘covers’ the emcees but still knocks. Rite Hook, Vinnie Paz, and Slaine all have had to struggle for what they have and no…that ain’t easy. Lace your boots up and cop the album when it drops in a couple of days.
Madchild and Slaine are on some American Psycho steez with the release of their latest video, Chainsaw. It even comes equipped with a spoofed ending. As far s what you can expect musically: On a lyrical level it approaches lunacy. On a musical level it’s the kind of production that will stalk your eardrums for a while. This song comes off of Madchild’s most recent project, Lawn Mower Man.

Swollen Members has teased me for years with single after single for previous albums alluding to that elusive and dark sound that harkens back to their debut effort, Balance. What kept on happening is the singles would all ring true to that “dark” formula, but those previous albums would fall short of the overall sound that I craved. Sometimes it’s not fair to judge an emcee or a group on that original sound as things are supposed to evolve. But I am only human, and in the case of Beautiful Death Machine, Madchild, Prevail, and Rob The Viking have come full circle.
I credit The Arsonists for my early passion for hip hop and being that D-Stroy was/is a central figure in the group, it’s only right to support his solo endeavors. This track is dope regardless of who he is and stands on it’s own merits. Slaine lens his verbals to the mic and Statik Selektah is your maestro…enjoy…
This is absolutely one of the most artistic and innovative videos I have seen this year. So I tip my hat to the team who came up with that idea. Very innovative. Meanwhile, if you haven’t heard that track then you haven’t purchased the album yet. PLEASE DO SO NOW!
