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 aware..
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..
Fluent – World Go Round feat. Kaze & Guilty Simpson prod. by J. Cardim
Fluent recruits the best of different worlds on this guitar driven beat by J Cardim. Here we have Kaze and Guilty Simpson who display their individual huts story for y’all to hear on wax. On paper it’s definitely something out of the blue but I tell you, it works on wax.
What can I say, Fluent’s project sounds dope even though it’s just two singles deep!!
Nothing can separate a hustler and his paper chase. Sure, temptations may arise, but at the end of the day, you’ll be one step closer than before. For all of..
MellowHype – INSA Release & Nowadays
Odd Future’s right hand men Hodgy Beats and Left Brain are back to give us what we all have been waiting for with the Independence Day release of MellowHype‘s INSA (I Need Some Answers). Take advantage of copping this album, as the duo has dropped the project for free! Yes, ladies and gents, for the second time, these cats have been generous enough to just give you good music, feeding you what hip hop needs again.
To help kick off the festivities, here’s the video for Nowadays, off of the INSA creation shot by by High5collective.
You can thank..
llla Ghee – Social Graffiti
After his recent activity, Illa Ghee‘s releases his LP ‘Social Graffiti’. I must say that this is something I have been patiently waiting for as his previous joints were nothing less than stellar. The vintage production from Large Professor, Crummie Beats, George Black et al. help seal the deal with the direction Illa Ghee takes the listener. The guest list alone will surely attract heads from left, right and centre.
Tune in and get with the program.
Longtime Brooklynite lyricist Illa Ghee is pleased to release his third solo full length LP,Social Graffiti, through his IMOR Entertainment. The RIAA Certified..
