Nobody is better equipped to talk about what it takes to make it in the game better than M-Dot. All these other artists looking at hip hop with the “fast food approach” but they weren’t prepared or equipped to take it there through hard work. And as the old adage goes…hard works always trumps talent. But with M-Dot you don’t have to split hairs there, you get to see what happens when hard work accompanies talent!
This is a video combo single from the Snowgoons’ recent album, Snowgoons Infantry. It’s two dope tracks mashed together to showcase some of the talent that’s contained on their many highly regarded projects. The first track features (once again) Recognize Ali, Lord Goat, and DJ TMB. The second cut features bars from Ren Thomas who is just vicious with his sixteens these days.
Nine has been keeping his name buzzing for a few months as his new project, King, is set to drop on Septemeber 9th. I am admittedly needing a late pass on this cut/video because it has been out for a moment. It’s been sitting in my inbox for more than a few days and I just peeped it moments ago, and it’s pretty damn sensational. Nine sets himself apart on this track Killmonger, produced by the Snowgoons, offering an alternative to the cookie-cutter mentality that abounds out there. The writing was really on point and the track has an epic sound about it.
Two independent hip hop icons link up when Snowgoons and Cunninlynguists unite for the cut I Walk Alone. The vibe of the track is very soulful and also a very fitting joint for the ‘lynguists to rock over. It’s a very appropriate joint to utilize as the first single for the Snowgoons’ upcoming project, Black Snow 2.0.
Enjoyable hip hop from some of the best!
Problems can sometimes feel insurmountable but these emcees are going to take their best shot over a neuro-stimulating Snowgoons production. Locksmith, Skrewtape, and Rite Hook each spit some bars about how the odds are stacked against them and each day can seem like a fist fight. It’s an interesting combination of artists that create a dope and cohesive joint.
Goon Bap drops in four days…make sure you check it.
This video from the Savage Brothers comes off of their most recent effort, Freedom Or Death. This is probably my favorite track from the album, as the Snowgoons give this cut almost a heavenly vibe while the emcees put in their dirties work on the microphone. It’s a yin and yang thing working here. A definite plus is including the legend, C-Rayz Walz, on the cut.
Rite Hook is back with a Sicknature produced single as a prelude to his forthcoming album Modify. Rite Hook brings a ton of energy to the track along with his trademark gravelly-voiced hooks. And those two things have been his calling card for years. If you haven’t been put on to Rite Hook releases previously, be sure to check out his albums, Draw You In and From The Wrong.
