Single You Out: GQ Nothin Pretty – High Quota (ft. Tragedy Khadafi)

Oh you want a banger! I got your banger right here with the new single, High Quota, from GQ Nothin Pretty featuring Tragedy Khadafi. The beat from DJ Tray is one of the heaviest yet in 2017. And the bars…oh these bars are like a musical massacre in the headphones.

If the rest of the new album, Animations, is remotely close to the quality of this track, we are in for a treat.

Single You Out: Nature – Give It To ‘Em (ft. JOHN JIGG$ & Tragedy) (Produced By BP)

This is the first single off of Nature’s forthcoming album, Target Practice.  The production comes from BP and als features guest flows from JOHN JIGG$ and Tragedy.

Let it be known, there is no hesitation with these flows!  You are about to get that street shit delivered right to your door. Recognize!

Single You Out: The Audible Doctor – Danger (ft. Hus Da Kingpin x Tragedy Khadafi)

a2505909559_10

The Audible Doctor just dropped the latest project in his ‘seasonal’ series, entitled The Spring Tape. The EP is only four tracks deep but there’s a lot packed into those four tracks musically.  The track that I wanted to touch on is Danger featuring Hus Da Kingpin and Tragedy Khadafi.  This is a track that blends both tough and smooth elements to create something that stands alone.  You have each of the emcees killing their assigned verses while The Audible Doctor composes a horn laden cascading rhythm.  Beautiful indeed…

Starvin B – Rap College (ft. Spit Gemz x Tragedy Khadafi) (Video)

Starvin B’s new album, Blood From A Stone is oh so good.  It’s one of my favorite albums to play from front to back this year and Starvin’s best work to date.  I have yet to meet anyone who disagrees with me on that last point.

One-Take handles all  of the production on the album and does an outstanding job.   It’s a true head knocker.  This track is one of the show stoppers from the album and also shows you that Spit Gemz is as potent as ever with his bars.

“A dollar and a dream will get you a shit sandwich…”   <—- Ain’t that the truth!

Endemic – Calisthenics (ft. Tragedy Khadafi, Sav Killz & Bugsy da God) (Video)

Endemic releases this video from the salvo known as, Terminal Illness Part 2.   This is one of the man gritty bangers that you will find on this project.   Endemic snares the talents of Tragedy Khadafi, Sav Killz , and Bugsy Da God to rock over some top notch production. Check the album if you have not already.

Note:

Some albums ease a listener into the moment, while others grab you by the throat and demand your attention.  Righteous Fury, the most recent album from Matt Maddox, is going to fall in the latter category.  From the instant you hear the first cut. you are both engaged and threatened by what you hear.   You are threatened because, from the jump, you find out that Maddox is not going to be mincing words and he will name names of those siting on the pedestals.  He has thrown ‘today’s hip hop’ on it’s head and as a listener you can not remove the headphones, you become obligated to listen to this release from start to finish.

Alterbeats – Class Struggle (2013)

artworks-000058490868-qld8g6-t500x500

 

I wish I had more time to do a proper write up of this release but as it is time is short and I want to at least let you know that i’s out there.   I just finished giving Class Struggle it’s first listen and similar to their previous release, The French Revolution, in that it’s chocked full of bangers.  I of course have my favorite tracks:  Brass Knuckles by Halfabrick, Real Talk by Skeezo, and Idol by Bekay are tracks that will be on repeat.

But more than that I love the production that Alterbeats is doing.  He just keeps getting better.  You can cop this album on iTunes, Amazon, UGHH and elsewhere.   You can also stream the album in it’s entirety at DJ Booth simply by clicking the link below:
