Note:

This release serves to wet the listener’s appetite and get you ready for Ayatollah’s forthcoming album Avant Garde which is going to drop on March 5th. As you can see from the track listing, Ayatollah has worked with some of the industry’s biggest names.

Elementality has released this collection of songs in a continuous 40 minute mix to showcase some of the highlights from his body of the work.   My hope is that you will DL, throw it in the iPod (or like device) and get familiar or re-familiar, whichever is the case.

Single You Out: Nino Bless – The Watchmen (ft. Cambatta, Styles P & Crooked I)

20130114-WATCHMEN

 

Some joints were just destined to hit hard, so what did you expect when you saw this line up?  This joint is lifted from Nino Bless’ forthcoming project, R.O.A.M. 2.  This joint is dark but also has a lot of different sounds going on.  It has a little bit of rock influence and some choral components, but it is for sure that boom map!

Single You Out: Heaven & Hell (ft. Styles P)

 

First off, I love the artwork for this joint!  Secondly,  DJ Nastee came super correct with this beat.  The sample and horns are amazing.  This something I could play again and again (and probably will).  Craig G and Styles P make quick work of the beat with fiery lyrics and delivery. Check in particular Craig G’s last verse.  Recognize that this Ramblings Of An Angry Old Man album will be something special.
