J Rocc – The Get On Down Mix
Jaz Marley – 710 & Pre-Rolls feat. BURNTmd
Just got hip to the music of Rhode Island native Jaz Marley and I must say he brings in that outer space vibes on this one called 710 & Pre-Rolls. The homie hooked up with BurntMD over a spacey /bouncy backdrop provided by iinfynite.
This is that jam to lace a phat one to, but don’t quote me on this.
Reppatwa – Lapsey’s Basement (prod. by One Soul) (UK)
V A D E R – Elephants On Parade.
This is some real cool shxt from Philly native V A D E R. Over a slurred Jonwayne production (you might recognise it from his Jonwayne Fucks Disney beat tape) V A D E R demonstrates an awesome flow and sweet wordplay, and this will feature on a release, expected at the end of this year, called Alias as part of collective & label Strange Friends.
DJ Qbert – Extraterrestria (Album Review)
In a brilliant strategy that’s enabled him to satisfy two different kinds of fans, Bay Area scratch legend DJ Qbert dropped two crowdfunded albums simultaneously on iTunes on July 1: the all-instrumental album Extraterrestria and GalaXXXian, a collection of radio- or club-friendly yet still unmistakably underground-sounding joints with guest features by the likes of Kool Keith, El-P, Roscoe Umali and former American Idol contestant Camile Velasco. GalaXXXian is designed for casual fans who enjoy watching Qbert’s turntable prowess on stage or in videos but either aren’t accustomed to instrumental hip-hop in album form or aren’t even..
StrypeZ – World Peace
Strypez is something out of the ordinary. He’s an emcee, photographer and graphic designer, amongst other things, but beyond that the type of music he makes is really outstanding. His delivery is intense and engaging, but it’s the message that really takes the cake. I don’t know how old this cat is (he looks really young) but he’s talking about some really profound stuff here – topics above his years, I dare say.
Scratch that, this cat is dope on the mic and that is all you need to know. I really dig the interaction he had with random people on..
