The Roots "How I Got Over"

No Comments »

The Roots "How I Got Over": I never did peep the live footage of them premiering this on Jimmy Fallon, and while I mess with this, I don't know. I feel like I would've loved this a lot more back in the day. I'm interested... but I don't know. Maybe I need to sit on this one. This is the first single from How I Got Over, which drops on September 29th, 2009 on Def Jam.

Shouts to OKP.

I've dropped a few King I Divine-specific posts a few months ago, and he just hit me with his latest beat tape. If you've heard homey's work before, you should know not to even sleep. He's in the kitchen cookin' up some marvelous shit... just look pon de cover!

Gotta Be Karim 10,000 Apples (mixed by Trackstar the DJ)

1 Comment »

I got an e-mail on this a few days ago, and for some reason I neglected posting it at that time. Gotta Be Karim is another one of those St. Louis spitters; there's something in the water out there, these niggas just have talent. Word is Vast Aire co-signs dude, and heads like Black Spade, Tech Supreme, Vandalyzm, Tef Poe and others make appearances behind the boards and pon de mic. Trackstar the DJ mixes this, so you know its thoro. Karim's Bullets & Books is dropping later this year, so consider this a (healthy) snack.

I've refrained from posting shit from this fucker, but I had to post this.

What the shit is that shirt he has on? On what planet am I to believe this canned, corny response? I'm just done with this. Bitch-nigga, you fail for the rest of your life. No more RTD mentions of your music, and when we do mention you, it's to spit at you for being a bitch-ass coward.

That's all.

[video] Diddy Speaks On E. Ness

No Comments »

Diddy speaks on E. Ness' situation. Contrary to popular belief, Ness wasn't in the Bad Boy mailroom - he has just been patient, trying to "make those songs"... aka, he hasn't made that joint as of yet, which makes sense. He's spent too much time dissing Chopper City and all that. At least he has a deal, though! Let's let Diddy explain it:

Shoulda put him on the "Must Be Love" remix, Diddy.

Joulz il & RTD Present The il Before The Storm

No Comments »

It's been a long-time coming for this one. I've been wanting to put out a project from Joulz il for so long, and with the Month of Jouly upon us, we figured it's only right. I know he's been working on The il Identity, trying to get his name up, and with the success of Offshore Drilling (which included his well-received track, "My Microphone"), its only right to serve the public with a batch of tracks that you should've heard, but might've slept on, as well as some cuts that have not leaked as of yet.

Everything on here is produced by the homegirl Entity Starr (for SwAsHo Productions), and the only feature is from the homey Original Soul. The topics range from warm summer afternoon funk to deeper, more thought-provoking material. Joulz is a gifted MC with endless flows and fresh lyrics - a true mic controller. This is a great compilation, sort of like a prophecy of what's to come from this talented individual; I love being able to hold onto a batch of tracks from an artist that I truly admire, but what I love more is finally being able to play weatherman, and hit you with that stormwatch. Get your umbrellas out, there's a storm brewing...

DOWNLOAD Joulz il & RTD Present The il Before The Storm (mirror)


1. Come Home With Me
2. When Was The Last Time
3. How Cool Is He (featuring Original Soul)
4. Whutdatiz
5. Getting It In
6. Respect & Take Note
7. Focus
8. You'll Remember This
9. Imagine That (Pain Rmx)
10. Help Me
11. Better Days
12. It's Over

Hit up Joulz il on the following sites: his blog \ twitter \ MySpace \ YouTube.

Or e-mail the homey. Let him you're feeling this. And spread the word!

EDIT To the top, as Joulz will be on Drunk N' Throwed tonight!

Been wanting to see J-Live perform this live, and after T.R.O.Y.'s comprehensive non-album comps on him, I had to find this. One of my favorite tracks, ever:

Beastie Boys ft. Nas "Too Many Rappers"


Beastie Boys ft. Nas "Too Many Rappers": Talk about leftfield old man rap. This is taken from Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1, which drops on September 15th. I mess with this something fierce, even if cats say odd shit like "all these crab rappers... they're rappin' like CRABS!"

All praise due to WIL.

No Comments »

DJ Cable vs. Tempa T & Rusko "Mr Muscle's Hype": DJ Cable strikes THUGSTEP paydirt with this blend. He was working on the forthcoming Mash Down Vol. 3 when he happened upon this blend. Tempa T's "Next Hype" coasts perfectly over Rusko's bangin' "Mr. Muscle", trust. Put the needle to this one and bomb the dancefloor.

Whygee passed this to me earlier today; word is that this is a collection of four-year old Sunkenstate tracks. If these are four years old, a lot of you so-called forward-thinkers need to hop into the Delorean and catch up!

Rukus ft. Soulbrotha "Slow It Down" (prod. by J. Slikk): I hate being kept in the dark, but its OK when my niggas are working on some heat. This is like the third Rukus/J.

Anyways, with all of the recent deaths and kids gone buckwild these days, we should all take heed and slow... it... down.

Nato Caliph ft. Naledge "Irrelevant"

1 Comment »

Nato Caliph ft. Naledge "Irrelevant": It's been a minute since I've gotten some new Nato Caliph music (that Power EP was the truth); this is the first leak off his forthcoming album, Knowledge + Cipher, and its a deep one. Caliph and the homey Naledge spin a few tales about people who feel irrelevant, for whatever reason. No smiling on this one, mainly because these stories are "real life, happening, everyday" (c) Mos Def, you feel me? 'Nuff respect to Nato for hitting me with this - when I get more info on the album, I got you.

EDIT Just found an interview with Caliph mentioning this track.

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of July 15, 2009 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.

Our commentary this week focused on the current U.S. Supreme Court nomination hearings for Judge Sonia Sotomayor and how race & class are coloring this situation, lessons that could be learned from the unfortunate situations and passing of sports legends Steve McNair & Arturo Gatti (R.I.P.), the Williams Sisters recent wins at Wimbelton & their continuing non-profit work for the community, and some other things here and there.

We had a great interview this week with up and coming independent singer and MC Raymond B of Black Magic Entertainment (

Some of the topics we discussed was his background in Tennessee & how his family, friends and others got him involved in the love of music, his upcoming business and music projects, how life has been as a successful independent artist in the U.S. South and the work and grind it needs to make it, experiences in the music industry and other things!

This week we do have new Black Agenda Report segment. The Direct EFX segments will return at the end of the HBCU's college summer break period in September.

Feel free to check out some recent episodes of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast here on - all of the shows are clean/radio friendly.

On the same day I see this lime-green MJ tee in downtown Trenton (can you see me in the reflection), the homies over at Clockwise hit me with pics of their new Michael Jackson tribute t-shirt.

And if you haven't grabbed Work, you're corny, but you're also in luck. You can download the album HERE; if you're trying to be uber-supportive, cop the CD version (its the one I have, and its dope) - you can also grab the tee from their as well. Very good music from these brothers. Enjoy.

Se7en ft. Dre Robinson & M-Dot "G'D UP" (prod. by Pauly Fingaz): Three of Boston's finest link up for one banger of a track? This is one of those cuts that true Gs click-clack over.

'Cyte reps Pittsburgh, and his Cyte Beyond Sight mixtape (hosted by Deejay Deez) will be dropping soon. Bonus points for the Thundercats bite in the cover!
