Rawmatik – Raw Deal (ft. Merkules, Madchild, U.G. & Dj Danetic) (Video)

Another video single from producer Rawmatik’s album, The States vs. Rawmatik.  You’ve got a couple of dope emcees in Merkules and U.G., riding a beat where Rawmatik sounds like he is rocking some Phantom Of The Opera type shit, and I am definitely good with that.  Madchild takes care of the chorus.

Be sure to check out the album!


U.G. (Cella Dwellas) – The Mystic (Video) 

Well after waiting approximately three years, today was the day that U.G. (Cella Dwellas) and IDE released the magnum opus, Portals.  I honestly thought this project was never going to drop.   So today I am proud to spread the word on something amazing! Portals is an incredible endeavor in the crafting of boom-bap.

This video is just the tip of the iceberg for what you have in store when you cop this album.  The lyrical diversity of U.G. and IDE’s sterling production make this a must have.

Single You Out: UG – The Mystic

UG’s forthcoming album, Portals, is my White Whale.  I have been waiting for it forever and for the longest time, I thought it was never going to drop.  I thought it was just going to be shelved.  But now we have proof of life with the IDE produced single, The Mystic.  On this track you get to hear UG flip a one of a kind style over a production that actually caters to the word…”mystic”.

Even greater news is that we have a release date for the new album.  It’s dropping on October 21st.   Make sure  you notate that on your calendar.

Single You Out: Eff Yoo & Godilla – Armed To The Teeth (ft. Shabaam Sahdeeq , Adlib, Spit Gemz, and UG)

Wack rappers best call a full retreat because it’s not safe outside for you when Eff Yoo and Godilla’s project, They Came On Horseback, drops next week.  This joint has bars that are toxic to the weak minded.  The guys bring a militia with them in the form of Shabaam Sahdeeq, Adlib, Spit Gemz, and UG.   Those are top notch artists delivering equally to notch  material.

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.

This is a yearly musical synopsis from the fam over at Creative Juices. The crew over their has been one of my favorites for three of four years now. They are always cranking out dope jams, and this mixtape gives you a taste of more than just a few of them. Again, this is a great way to get you caught up with the crew or get put on as a fan. Obviously this is mixed by the skilled talent that is DJ Connect. They have loads of great music in store for 2013 as well. Enjoy!
