If you didn't make it to the Black Friday 2 release party in November, you don't own that disc. If you don't own that disc, you won't be ready for Black Collar Biz' High Grade Artistry. If you're not ready for High Grade Artistry, what are you really doing with your life? To attempt to get you back in order, I got back on mine and uploaded track #2 from the project, featuring BCB rocking over what should be a VERY familiar sample, coasting and roasting those who are... lackluster. Lots of gems thrown in here, and I'm hoping someone who might be wanting to make a change but don't know how can be invigorated by this one. If you're straggling? Pick ya feet up.

Daniel Joseph (or Espee to me because fuck that I'm old) and Sol Zalez go back; the Jersey artists have a history that goes back 17 years. Jokers are a part of the later development of the Jersey hip-hop scene, and to get a new tune from these two - even if it's "just a demo" is some shit you need to put your ears on... righ tnow.

check out Joe Muggs' expansive piece for FACT.
This is pretty damn legendary. Props to Ciph and Rosenberg for finally getting Kanye West on Juan Ep.

It's legit been two years since I first heard this track, and I'm finally hearing it in full for the first time. The first time I saw Joey rock live, he performed this. Been waiting for this ever since. Word is he has an album on the way, and I can only hope that a) this track is on it and b) it sounds as dope as "The Jungle!"

TheCombatJackShow: "The Combat Jack show once again occupied the Hot 97 portal to break bread with our friend Ebro Darden of Hot 97 fame. You know every once and a while we gotta sit down with the head honcho to have “that” conversation. We talked NYC hip hop, the state of radio, his ever growing personality and more. Want to know if Hot 97 can be the home of The Combat Jack Show? Put down that daddy yak, grab some D’usse listen to this hardbody episode."

Hopefully you're tuning into Side-B Radio with the homey Phil Jackson WPRB Sunday nights, 5PM to 7PM. Phil puts on for Jersey, and the hip-hop world in general, and I respect the hell out of the work he puts in. It's not often that I get interviewed, but when he hit me up to come on the show and speak about what I do, I had to talk with him. It's not crazy long, but I got to speak about RTD and a few things we have going on, what's GONE on, and some of the stuff I've been doing with Complex. Big up to Phil always, and I'm hoping that 2014 can see us put some of these wheels into motion.
And for those paying attention, here's the promo for Black Friday 2:

Black Friday, the prelude to his intense Forever Black project. This year, on Black Friday, we're doing it again. Black Friday #2 will feature a grip of tracks from Biz, many of which I've not even heard before, and on Black Friday 2013 (November 29, 2013), there will be a tour fundraiser / release party that will feature live performances, the premiere of the "One Love" video, an art auction, body painting, a sneak peak at HGA, a photo booth, and more! #10 minimum contribution gets you in the door (and a copy of Black Friday); $15 gets you both mixtapes, and a $30 contribution gets you both mixtapes and an HGA t-shirt. This all goes down at 3 S. Broad Street in Trenton. You already know. Full details over on Facebook.
