Single You Out: Apathy x Stu Bangas – No Time To Waste (ft. Jadakiss)

A heatrock from Apathy and producer Stu Bangas coming off a forthcoming project. No Time To Waste is ominous. The strings that Stu Bangas puts to work on this track are damn menacing, and made more so with Apathy’s razor-sharp lyricism, and bar work from guest emcee Jadakiss. And his last line, “funerals on zoom” was definitely a way to close out a track. Mic dropped.

This is a favorite.

Vinnie Paz – Papi Wardrobe (Video)

The prolific and timeless JMT frontman, Vinnie Paz, has yet another project on the way, seemingly adding to his mounting musical legacy. Burn Everything That Bears Your Name is the title of the album, and that is dropping on April 23rd. For this particular track, Paz, joins forces with producer extraordinaire, Stu Bangas. And they cook up a high energy joint that is sure to appease fans. Enjoy and mark the date!

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.
