RIS – Maple Syrup (Canada)

This newcomer to Word Is Bond is RIS, an emcee I came across on the internet many years ago.  He has been juggling student life with handling microphones so his body of work may be a little small, but the man in question is prepping a new project called ‘Boxing With God’. The laid back, retrospective cut ‘Maple Syrup’ is one of the few singles from the release, and the young man takes some minutes to reminisce about life, the future and everything that comes in between.

“…Up North where the day’s short and the night stay longer

Diabolic – Fightin Words

Finally the public can get their hands on Diabolic‘s latest effort Fightin Words. The LP is released through his own imprint, and so he’s able to display his art in full glory with no label restrictions. The 18 track project has collaborations with legends like RA the Ruggedman, Celph Titled, Sean Price, Vinnie Paz amongst others, while on the production side of things we have the likes of DJ Premier, 5th seal, C-Lance and SnowGoons. We can all bear testament to Diabolic’s verbal prowess on the mic but he takes it up a notch with some much needed socio-political commentary and tales of personal struggle..

Apollo Brown & Ras Kass – Humble Pi

I don’t know about y’all but for me this collaboration between Apollo Brown and Ras Kass is nothing short of a hip-hop head’s dream. The previously released ‘h2o’ record gave me that cold shiver, and this one got me vibing out to its slow, menacing sample and thick drums. The cherry on top is of course Ras Kass; lyrically he continutes to hold it down  and I’m yet to hear a weak Ras Kass verse.

Tune in and get with the program.

“Hope you picking up what I’m putting down, Wack is wack”

From intestines to chitlins, from old dusty..

King K.O.N.G x Teck-Zilla – All Kosher feat. AVN

Teck-Zilla (part, of course, of the Word Is Bond fam) teams up with MCs King K.O.N.G and AVN for ‘All Kosher’. Teck’s production is off the chain for this one, as he gives a nod to the classic ‘Funky Drummer’ break, topped off with some soulful cuts. Meanwhile King K.O.N.G’s gruff, intimidating demeanour is contrasted nicely with AVN’s lighter vocals on the top. Dope!

Helldogs Kris – Sunstroked

Roots of Society member Helldogs Kris drops this awesome eight track summer-themed project called Sunstroked in our laps for free. His style is really interesting; Kris composes dreamlike, catchy layered sounds that have a bright, vivid touch to them. To be honest, I can’t describe it accurately in words so you gotta hit that play button to enjoy this dope piece of work from the young man.
