Joulz Il "You Don't Hear Me Tho'" (prod. by Entity Starr): This diss track is the sound of a lion who realizes that the cage door is wide open, pouncing on the teenage punk who's been trying to egg him on, not realizing that the lion's ill demeanor is playing it coy, not lazy or sleepy. Joulz had some cats on a Dallas Hip-Hop forum going off on him, over and over, and he kept it quiet... not anymore. Pretty much closes the casket on that shit, no?
"Keep my name outcha moooooooouth!"
Ayatollah "Brolic": This is taken from Ayatollah's Drum Machine LP, which will feature 22 never-before-heard instrumentals from Ayatollah himself. This is essential for those who have loved the beats he's freaked for cats like Mos Def, Rakim, D-Block, Monch, Wu-Tang and many others. This drops on Nature Sounds on Sept. 30th, and is a digital download affair.
Shouts to Matt for the heads up!
Sugar Tongue Slim "Write Your Name" (prod. by MP3): Uses the sample you'd associate with a track with that title, and it's fly. Works really well... this is taken from STS' Demand More mixtape, which is being hosted by Tapemasters Inc x The Empire x IllRoots.com. More on that when I get more info, homey.
I've already hit you guys with "Do What It Do", from the forthcoming Fokis & Focus... EP entitled 20/20, which drops on September 16th (check out DubCNN's interview with them for more info). I know they have been working on this for a bit, and the fruits of their combined labor will soon be hitting the 'Net for all to partake in...
We do have a special contest for you guys, and it's pretty interesting. Do you see that image up there? The contest question is in that image (you can download the image as well); what you need to do is:
- Figure out the question
- Answer the question
- Send your answer, along with your name, location, MySpace page URL (if you have one) and the URL of the site you saw this contest on to firstname.lastname@example.org!
That's pretty simple, no? The first person with the correct answer will be the winner, and will receive
- A 20/20 T-Shirt, courtesy of a.Fam & Loyalty Records
- An autographed copy of Fokis' first album, More Than One Way
Get crackin' on this, as I will be naming the winner on Sept. 16th.
NOTE: those who enter the contest and are looking for the answer - be resourceful, i.e. use Google, MySpace, etc. to do some reasearch and get the answer. GOOD LUCK!

You can grab this jawn for free by signing up at The Foreign Exchange's website. Eskay has the tracklist/cover to their forthcoming album, Leave It All Behind. Should be a dope project.
First off, I love this kind of shit. Surf guitar shit? From like Gidget? I always got into that shit...
I'm not sure how many other MCs are up on Surf Guitar Rap, but Tone Tank is set to destroy all ya sand castles with this four-track EP, The King of Surf Guitar Rap. And damnit, it does exactly what it says on the tin. I also love how this isn't like a guitar sample set to some boom-bap... dude really kicks over some vintage loops. It's kind of exciting - makes me wish I could surf and ride out to these.
Old Money "Just Got Chopped (Crack)" (prod. by 6th Sense): I love getting tunes passed in the inbox. I hate thinking I got the drop on shit, though, and then seeing Shake beat me to the punch... on Thursday. You know how it goes, though... trickle down effect and all. This track is dope, though. I love when cats can captivate you with snare-less beats.
Kanye's new single:
This should be available on iTunes today. Video and MP3 of live recording via Eskay.
EDIT: If this is how this year's VMAs ended, I'm glad I didn't watch it. I think I turned it off right after Britney won her award. Did I miss much?
The Game whooped on Bow Wow, 55-23:
Joe Thomas "E.R.": For some reason, Joe's using his surname this go 'round. He's also holding a video contest to promote this tune: if you make a video to "E.R.", upload it to Joe's Emergency Room YouTube Group. Winner gets $1500. Submissions are due by September 23rd, which is the same day Joe's New Man album is in stores.

DJ Kay Slay ft. Papoose, Tony Yayo, Uncle Murda, Sheek Louch, Jim Jones & Junior Reid "Don't Take It There (Remix)": I brought you the original back in June, and now here's the heavy remix, featuring cats who was beefing with each other at one point or another.
LL Cool J "We Rollin'": Another leak from Exit 13, LL hits a fresh late summer banger for your whips. I could see a lot of cats praying for an Indian summer, just so they can put the top down, scoop up their shorty, and rock to this one before the Fall.
Bonus Beats: "Ringtone Murder" (ft. Grandmaster Caz) [via 2DB] & "Like A Radio" (ft. Ryan Leslie) [via Nah Right]
pH10 ft. Pete Miser & Jamalski "Enter The Underground": Some twisted Drum & Bass for your Wednesday freakfests. This comes from pH10's forthcoming Well Connected LP, which should be a great representation of live Jungle music coming from the States. Some call them the sound of the Beastie Boys being influenced by Slayer, but I just call it ill.
1. GoldieLocks Ft Neon Hitch & Cerebral Vortex - Digital Army
2. Dizzee Rascal - Where’s Da Gs?
3. Bashy - Kidulthood to Adulthood
4. GoldieLocks Ft Frisco - Wasteman
5. Rusko - Cockney Thug
6. Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry - Mr President
7. Santogold - Shove It
8. GoldieLocks - Spooky
Straight up and down, I'm not the biggest fan of The Cool Kids. "Black Mags" is my favorite joint of theirs, and the first I heard (and I know there's a dubstep remix of it milling about...); anyways, the boy Optimus Prime of The Trolley Stop hit me with two cuts that he and Shogun leaked from an old CD they found in the crates, so all props go to them.
When I get more of these, I'll post them up.

The East Flatbush Project ft. Mirage Black & Stress "Thirsty": I told you guys that EFP were still doing it. Mirage Black & Stress catch wreck over "Nights Over Egypt", and this will be a perfect joint to play during your BBQs today. Might have to crank this one up today...
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony ft. 2Pac vs. DJ Chamberweed "Thug Luv (DJ Nappy THUGSTEP Refix)": At my mom's Long Island Iced Tea-drenched cookout, my Aunt Zina wanted me to throw on one of her Bone Thugs Greatest Hits CDs. I had CD1 on, which had the classics, and "Thug Luv" popped on. Such a fresh collaboration, but when you hear Chamberweed's "350 Wolverine", with that rapid fire kick that comes in, and hear the Bone niggas rippin' it, its a marriage made in Thug Heaven. Pac sounds like a war general on this one, too.
Happy Labor Day!
