Single You Out: Supastition – Scatterbrained

The answer to new dope from Supastition is always a resounding ‘yes’. It’s been a while since he’s released a project and he’s about to unveil the world he has been living in these last couple of years with the release of his new project, Every Last Word, which drops on Tuesday. It’s a project where he not only does he provide the rhymes but also handles the production. The project is a personal narrative, and the single Scatterbrain was the lead single which actually dropped a few monthst ago but sharing now. It’s where Supa constructs and follows the bassline, narrating the course of his life and career.

DJ 2-Tone Jones – Buddhists on Beatties Ford (ft. J Scienide & Supastition) (Video)

I love when artists advance hip hop through creative samples, beats and rhythms. DJ 2-Tone Jones travelled to India and when he came back he had an assortment of traditional Bollywood records which he then sent out to various producers to sample from. Ill idea, right? In the end he wound up with the record, Contraband From India.

On the track, Buddhists on Beatties Ford, The Mighty DJ DR gets the nod to create something dope, and that he does with J Scienide and Supastition invited to rock the mic over this Indian infused beat.

Dope concept and execution.

Single You Out: Supastition – Solitaire


Supastition is back!!!  And he’s back showcasing both his lyrical talent and his skills behind the board.  He’s a Top 5 emcee in my mind.  He’s clever, has a great flow, brings it with emotion, and he’s extremely relatable.   Sacrifice is his new EP and it’s dropping on July 26th so stand prepared.

Single You Out: Supastition – Thanks, Ghost

Supastition is putting together a monthly series called Solitaire, where he will release a song that he alone produces, writes, records, and does the graphic design for.

For the most part, I don’t mess around with these series type projects because they are hard to keep up with, but I do appreciate the entire discography of Supastition. So I am going to give this one a go.

On Thanks, Ghost, Supa pays homage to Ghostface Killah’s storytelling ability while narrating a couple of his own. He flips on a couple of events that occurred in his life while listening to tracks from the Wu-Tang vet. Pretty clever if you ask me.

Take a listen and pass it on!

Single You Out: Supastition – Flawless (prod. by Praise)


One of my all time favorite emcees is back with a single from his forthcoming album, Gold Standard.  If I could use one word to describe Supastition it would be ‘authentic’.  When you listen to his music you are getting the real deal…his thoughts…his music…his vision.  This track, Flawless, produced by Praise,  sounds like a celebration of lyrical integrity to me.  Also, a special set of props is deserved for that Great Kabuki line….(I know most of you won’t get that one…)



Single You Out: First Division – Three Times Dope (ft. Supastition)

This Friday has been comprised of a steady diet of dope shit and this single from First Division is no different.  These guys are dropping that no-frills boom bap sound directly on eardrums.  This time the guest list is comprised of Mr. Authentic himself, Supastition.   The beat by BeatWyze can certainly be considered a banger as well.

First Division’s EP, The Critical Path Pt. 2 drops on May 27th.  So mark that on your calendar.

Top 50 Songs (2013)

Disclaimer:  It is hard and challenging to pick 50 tracks from the thousands upon thousands that dropped this year.  It is merely an attempt to list my favorite cuts of 2012.  Click the links to listen to the song!  I think it’s a great list.  There were a lot of great songs crafted this year and I know I left off some good ones.  I listened to 5,000+ tracks from 2012 alone this year, so as an artist, if you made this list you know you are on the forefront of my iTunes!
