Single You Out: Dueling Experts – Revolve Around Sciences

Dueling Experts (Verbal Kent and Recognize Ali) are back for another round of dopeness with the impending release of their sophomore project, DE2: Sand The Floor. These artists sound really good together with commanding voices and flows. Very complimentary skill sets. And this beat by Lord Beatjitzu is incredibly strong and anchors the duo well.

Make sure you check the album when it drops on December 11th.

Single You Out: Recognize Ali – Miracles (ft. Verbal Kent)

Here’s another single from Recognize Ali’s forthcoming album, Allah’s Favorite, featuring Chicago emcee Verbal Kent and the result is ill. Eyedee laces a stripped down production, yet one that certainly bangs. That production is escorted by scratches implanted by DJ TMB. Kent and Ali prove to be an imposing force on this track. I have high hopes and expectations for this project.

Single You Out: Superior – Mastermind (feat. Verbal Kent)

Superior is a producer who is dropping an album on February 17th, entitled The Journey. He has dropped a slew of singles and I haven’t featured them as much as I should so let me share this Verbal Kent joint with you. You can hear that gritty boom bap in his production with the heavy drums, and vocal samples. And Kent is a natural over such productions, channeling the master plans of characters such as Walter White. Really good stuff.

Ugly Heroes – Daisies (Video)

Ugly Heroes release a video for the track Daisies, from their much vaunted album, Everything In Between.

The realness in this song, this album, and this group, really relates to people.  There is such a human element to everything they do.  They are humbling and at the same time motivating.  As a listener and a fan they always inspire me especially during difficult times.

Enjoy.

 

 

Single You Out: Verbal Kent – Suitcase Switch (ft. Freddie Gibbs)

Verbal Kent is back with the backing of Apollo Brown and Freddie Gibbs for his new single, Suitcase Switch.  The production from Apollo Brown is absolutely beautiful.  It’s got so much soul packed into the span of four minutes.  Kent and Gibbs do an admirable job spitting some nice bars with their own divergent styles.  Kent keeps a rapid delivery while Gibbs relies on a more methodical approach to rocking the mic.  It all comes together nicely.

Verbal Kent’s new album, Anesthesia, drops on September 11th.

Single You Out: Verbal Kent – Raponomics (prod. by Khrysis)

I am really glad to see Verbal Kent make moves in the last couple of years.  This is a man who has been paying dues for a long time, and his recognition is long overdue.  He’s got a very recognizable voice, so every time he hits the mic there’s no questioning the identity.  His rhyme writing has also elevated throughout the years.  This time he teams up with the legendary, Khrysis for the song, Rapanomics, which is the jump off for their album, Sound Of The Weapon, which drops on February 28th.  Peep.

Single You Out: Ugly Heroes – Pay Attention

a1195398700_2

 

Off of the forthcoming Mello Music Group Compilation, Mandala Vol. 2, Today’s Mathematics, comes the first single from Ugly Heroes.  The crew is of course comprised of Verbal Kent, Red Pill, and Apollo Brown.  This is a stellar joint if my opinion counts for anything.  The sound is really an extension of their self-titled album from earlier this year.

“…some pay dues…I pay attention…”

The compilation drops on January 28th so save the date…
