Iron Braydz – Verbal sWARdz EP (U.K.)

Iron Braydz‘s latest project Verbal sWARdz is a ten track body of work boasting features from Sean Price, Phat Kat, Prince Po and members of the lyrical powerhouse Triple Darkness (Melanin 9, Cyrus Malachi, Ray Vendetta etc). Sound-wise Iron Braydz delivers a dark, edgy, and somewhat cinematic soundscape to arrange his overly graphic lyrical mosaics. Known to be unrelenting with the flow from the opener ‘Scorpion Sting’ to the broody ‘Millenium‘ (feat Prince Po), the EP stays true to the title.

Stream: Pharoahe Monch – PTSD (album)

The wait is finally over. Pharoahe Monch‘s album, PTSD  was released to the masses. I have to admit, this is definitely a well-put together album; 17 tracks full of amazing content. The intro and the interludes give you a serious peek into what’s going on in the mind of this talented spitter. Make sure you cop that at the stores or the music sites on the internet.

GoldLink – Wassup prod. Sango

With Broccoli City Festival just around the corner (the DC stop), two of my favorites link up and drop some serious heat with the latest collab, ‘Wassup’. We already know Sango‘s touch turns everything to gold on the production side, but add GoldLink‘s flavor to the mix and bam…Christmas just came early for all of us. Be sure to spin this one after the jump, it’s one not to miss.

The two will be performing this weekend along side the likes of Just Blaze, Cam’ron, Chuck Inglish & many more. If you’re around the DMV area,..

The Faze – Maya Angelou ’96

‘Maya Angelou ’96′, the newest track from emcee The Faze, shows that there are still some who put in their all when it comes to hip-hop. The Faze teams up with producer Willie B who cooks up an emotionally powerful soundscape for the rapper to paint his personal ordeals for all to see and hear. Another interesting point is he actually uses some Maya quotes in the song to emphasize his views as he goes for the long verse route while switching up the flow as required sans catchy hooks.

This is really interesting.
