This is a choice track from Ea$y Money and Fabeyon’s, Beyond EaSy. Of course you got Statik Selektah on the boards which you know is going to prove meaningful, and Money’s flow is true and on point over a joint that derives inspiration from none other than Gangstarr. This is foundational hip hop right here in it’s most pure.
Statik Selektah & Termanology (1982) – F*ck Ya LyfeSTyle (ft Nems & Beanz) (Video)
This is one of my favorite joints from 1982’s (Statik Selektah x Termanology) album Still 1982. The beat that Statik cooked up for this is the sure shot and when Term links up with Nems it’s nothing but gully raps. And Beanz definitely keeps the momentum going between each of the verses on the chorus. It’s tough, and you shall enjoy.
Statik Selektah & Quadir Lateef – Exorcism (Video)
Man, it’s hard to get any more intense than Quadir Lateef gets on this Statik Selektah banger, Exorcism. I mean good gawd! This might be the most serious bars spit in 2017 thus far. I have always been a fan of Lateef and pick up anything he puts out, but this on this track he really is trying to exorcise some demons, fa real!
Single You Out: AG Da Coroner – The Game Changer
AG Da Coroner and Statik Selektah come out and ring a few bells with this The Game Changer single. They’re tired of the nonsense and repetitiveness that has become of hip hop. They are here to make a statement. Point made.
Check The Discography: Reks
I have been a fan of Reks since I first heard the album, Along Came The Chosen. He’s a real man, a real emcee, who is creating real music. There are no smoke and mirrors. There’s no fancy cars and glamorous women in the videos. There’s no flashing of the cash. When the game changed, Reks remained true to himself and the foundation of hip hop. He kept on doing him and making music for those who could appreciate that. He’s worked with some of the most renowned producers and illest emcees. In return for his great musical contribution, HHD wants to repay the favor and highlight his illustrious career thus far. This Check The Discography is for a man who is more than deserving. So Reks, we salute you, your work, and all the energy you put into it. As a fan, if you don’t have any of these albums, or mixtapes, make sure you do yourself a favor and cop these. A couple of things before you start clicking: The majority of these releases are sold in online stores, so please follow the links and support the man. Secondly, Happy Holidays was released as a mixtape almost a decade ago and I can find no working links so if you have access, holler at me. Lastly, the link to the Rekless album is to CD Universe where you can only buy the physical album for approximately $60.00. I say go for it!
One Dae – Daes & Times (2013)
Artist: One Dae
Album: Daes & Times
1. Welcome Sinners
2. Bang This
4. Play By Play (ft. Evidence)
5. It’s Everywhere
6. A Long Way (ft. Statik Selektah)
7. Daes & Times (ft. C-Rayz Walz)
8. BK All Dae
9. Walk In My Shoes (ft. Dana Diaz-Tutaan)
10. Abu Ghraib (ft. Sean Price)
11. Earth Child (ft. Tsi La Brev)
12. Take A Look Around
13. End of the World
I really want to close out 2013, but I can not do so without cranking out one more review for a very dope album. The first thing heads will notice about the album Daes & Times is the production credits. There are some heavyweight names creating beats for One Dae. When listeners see names like Statik Selektah, Marco Polo, Analogic, Domingo, and M-Phazes, they are bound to pay attention. But as the man, Mike Zoot once said “a wack rhymer can kill a raw beat”. In this case the opposite is true: One Dae accentuates what these beatsmiths provide making this album memorable.
Single You Out: H Blanco – Blessed (prod. by Statik Selektah)
H Blanco is a new signee to Termanology’s roster. I think he’s quite impressive on this track. I know that I have heard him on some of Termanology’s past works and looking forward to what he might be doing in the future. Apparently he has a new mixtape released in conjunction with Statik Selektah. I think you guys should feel this joint.
Single You Out: D-Stroy – Ya Don’t Stop (ft. Slaine) (prod. Statik Selektah)
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…
Statik Selektah – Never A Dull Moment (ft. Action Bronson, Termanology, and Bub B)
Video for one of the cuts off of Statik Selektah’s, Population Control. It’s a dope joint all the way around though Bun B to me is the show stopper.
