Single You Out: Wordworth x Sam Brown – Hero (ft. Last Emperor)

Wordsworth links up with The Last Emperor for the single, Hero, off of the forthcoming album, Our World Today. The album is Wordsworth’s collaboration with producer Sam Brown. This track musically sounds like a blend of 80s electronica and boom bap hip hop. There’s just something unique about the pulsing synth when combine with the sample that’s being used in the chorus. And who better for Wordsworth to team up with with for a track like this other than The Last Emp who is known for his Secret Wars cuts from the early 2000s?

Album dropping August 11th.

eMC – Charly Murphie (Video)

I have already talked about the song itself.  The video is pretty straight forward.  It’s four incredibly talented emcees rocking over the boom bap version of Three Blind Mice.  It get’s no realer!

…you don’t really want to get into a place, where you learn what the five fingers said to the face…” – Masta Ace

The Turning Point drops on May 20th.  You know that you are feeling it!

Single You Out: Reckonize Real – Shattered Dreams (ft. Wordsworth)

Shattered Dreams Big

Well, I had to get out of dodge for a moment so I am about a week and a half delayed in posting some things.  This particular track is coming from Queens, NYC producer, Reckonize Real.  The track is a single off of his forthcoming album, Dopamine, and features the much talented and respected emcee, Wordsworth.  It’s smoothed out from top to bottom.  A combination of introspective lyricism and mellow vibes.  I hope you enjoy.
