After Ourz – Hector Salamanca (Video)

Foul Monday, Starvin B, and Flushing Tek combine with producer Stu Bangas for this track on the After Ourz project.  And if you know ANY of the names affiliated you know what this project is about.  On this particular joint, you are getting that unfiltered NYC grimy lyricism with that exceptional production that Bangas is always affiliated with!  The project is seven tracks long and won’t disappoint in the least.

Single You Out: Blacastan x Stu Bangas – Lucifer’s Sickle

Blacastan and Stu Bangas are all but set to release their new album next week, The Uncanny Adventures Of Watson And Holmes.  And this song definitely sets the tone for the release. Stu Bangas really has developed some sickness from behind the boards on this one.  The bass line…guitar licks…with the drums is premier stuff.  Blacastan delivers his bars like a hell hound.  He’s got firey bars and owns this rhythm.

Can’t wait to see what’s on tap with this album.

Single You Out: Blacastan and Stu Bangas – Nubian Metal (ft. Vinnie Paz and Celph Titled)

I didn’t realize that Blacastan and Stu Bangas had an album in the works (Watson and Holmes).  For their first offering, Nubian Metal, it’s an AOTP reunion of sorts with Vinnie Paz and Celph Titled jumping on the track.   It’s more of what you have come to expect from the team: that hard-body hip hop.   It’s not my favorite track out at the moment, but it still knocks with the best of them.

The album drops July 29th.

Esoteric & Stu Bangas – Steel Chairs (Video)

I am typically not a fan of montage/mashup videos but this one for Steel Chairs had me feeling a bit nostalgic.  I grew up watching the likes of Arn and Oli Anderson and the Four Horsemen so this video took me back.  I hadn’t thought about any of those names in a long while.  And lets not forget to mention that the music from Esoteric and Stu Bangas is prime choice.  Make sure you peep their new album, Machete Mode.

Esoteric & Stu Bangas – Ease Up (ft. Planetary, Reef the Lost Cauze & Blacastan) (Official Video)

New video off of Estoeric and Stu Bangas’ upcoming album, Machete Mode.  The album is available for preorder on itunes right now and is slated to drop on November 26th.   This particular cut has a tag team battle taking place over some ill Stu Bangas’ production.   It’s Planetary and Blacastan taking on Reef and Esoteric.  You decide the victor!

Esoteric & Stu Bangas – The Danger (ft. Vinnie Paz, Celph Titled & Apathy) (Video)

Video single off of Esoteric and Stu Bangas’ forthcoming album, Machete Mode.  Part of the AOTP gang joins Esoteric on the cut  in the form of Vinnie Paz, Celph Titled, and Apathy.   It incorporates a favorite Walter White turn of phrase from the now officially ended TV show, Breaking Bad. Check it!
