I am really now just getting up on Eto and what he is bringing to the table. I heard him murk a few features and thought I needed to get up on his projects. I saw this new EP with producer Flu entitled, Motion Picture. And this is the track that they are all talking about. It’s some back alley, watch your back music going on right here with this beat and the features from Crimeapple and Smoovth.
I am going to have to go through his back catalogue now!
Planet Asia is gearing up for another album, Mansa Musa, which is set to drop in a couple of days and since the man can do no wrong, and you love hip hop, this is an auto-cop. Who has consistently dropped more dopeness than Planet Asia over the years? No one has delivered what he has with this type of consistency.
On the single, Mansa Musa Medallions, Hus Kingpin and Smoovth join Planet Asia over a glorious production from J.O.D. The track has an ill, yet glorious flavor about it.
Here’s a new DJ Rybe produced track featuring rhymes from Code Nine and Smoovth. The resulting product is definitely some head not effect. Rybe gets the horns blowing and the emcees put in some excellent work. Not sure if this is off of an future project, but I hope you checked out Rybe’s Channel Zero from early last year., as that was some serious dope.
This beat from Vic Grimes is just point blank, treacherous. I love how the guitar maneuvers through the drums. Daniel Son, Acetik, and SmooVth each put in quality work on the microphone making this song something memorable.
There is no word if this joint is destined for a particular project, but stay tuned!
Here is a track, Ferocious, from Saran Rap’s recent EP, Heavy Crates. I am putting this out there because I think some heads are missing out on this project. It’s got a few heavy hitters in terms of emcees, and definitely has that boom bap appeal. I certainly think it fits the mold of what we are trying to do here at HipHopDependency.
Of course on this track you’ve got Agallah, Smoovth, and Spit Gemz slaying mics, and who doesn’t like that line up. Enjoy!
This is a single from Agallah’s new mixtape, Don Status. This is actually my first taste of music from the project and it’s making me think I should check the whole thing. The production from Organik Poisons has a really smooth sound with the cascading sample. The emcees each do their thing effectively, but Spit Gemz’ bars are the showstopper.
SmooVth drops a somber and reflective joint upon us. He expresses some regret in life but also display resiliency by being able to move past events and succeed. This is the type of music that we can all get behind and relate to. Camoflauge Monk on the beat.
I said it before and I will say it again: I am always down for some Scifi Stu production. On Love And War, Stu gets those piano keys moving while Sleep Sinatra and Smoovth (Tha Connection) brought the streets to the track. Chinch 33 on the cuts…making it extra saucy for the masses.
