Whygee ft. DJ Brikabrak "The Drastic" (prod. by Yallzee): Yallzee's boomin' beat x Whygee's ode to quality Hip-Hop + Brikabrak's prime cuts = supreme Hip-Hop satisfaction. I'm not 100% where this cut will end up, but the above graphic should hold the key...

Prophit ft. D-Black "Nigga Who?!?" (prod. by Kenlo): Around the end of July, Prophit's Cause When You Stop Dreaming, It's Time To Die mixtape dropped on the masses. It contained this D-Black feature, among a fresh selection of beats and featured artists. Since then, homey has been a performer on the Lollapalooza 2009 tour (in Chicago), and seems to be poised to make a whole mess of noise. If you're feeling this, grab that tape and get enlightened.

You will find these on The Premium Mixtape, which will be available next month. Some really ill, soulful Hip-Hop vibes and stuff. Remember what was good about '90s Hip-Hop?

PANTyRAiD "Beba": This is a fresh cut from PANTyRAiD, aka the new outfit from The Glitch Mob and Marty Party. It combines the glitch-y wonderfunk with some chilled out, Electro-leanin' vibes. Really laidback cut that goes a bit mental at points. Marine Parade will be dropping their album, The Sauce, on September 21st, and if this is an example of what to expect, cover me in chocolate and count me a believer!

Rob Jay "Serious Mistake"

No Comments »

Rob Jay "Serious Mistake": While you guys are captivated by the classic sample playing throughout this one, not to mention the ill story (which I'm told is fictional, and loosely based on Rob and his people's), I'm wondering why they teased me with those Jungle beats in the intro and only revisit them in the latter part of the track. Dude's got some skills - he teases and caresses that beat throughout the track, but still weaves an intoxicating warning of a tale effortlessly. This is taken from his Video Rob Is Dead mixtape, so take heed.

Raekwon ft. Lyfe Jennings "Catalina" (prod. by Dr. Dre): This cut, along with "10 Bricks", have me assured of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 being something to get excited for. We finally get to hear one of those Rae x Dre tracks, and I'm not mad at it at ALL!

Jay-Z "Reminder" (prod. by Timbaland): Sounds like a leak got sprung over at Timbaland's studio. This is better than "Off That", in my opinion, but in the string of Hov + Timbo collaborations, this isn't up there. And did he really use that "men lie, women lie, numbers don't" line? How old is this?

MAGr ft. Blu "Laminated Looseleafs"

MAGr ft. Blu "Laminated Looseleafs" (prod. by DistantStarr): Here's a leak from a project I've been waiting to unleash for a minute. Dom P at Public Axis and RTD are presenting MAGr's No News Is Good News album... remember when I hipped you to this back in June? I've been rockin' to this for the last week, and its awesome. Al Mighty and DistantStarr make up MAGr, and both have put in a gang of work on this project. The bulk of the project was produced by DistantStarr, but beats from the likes of Hudson Mohawke, Erik L, Fel Sweetenberg and many more compliment his soundscapes very well - and the lyrics? Al Mighty is a beast on the mic, and with features from the Rap Pack and Cymarshall Law (again, among others) help accent MAGr's flavors.

Take this as a warning - you better be ready when Public Axis & RTD Present MAGr: No News Is Good News drops on Monday, August 31st. No sleepin' on Jersey...

Epiphany ft. Gina Gee "5 Dollas": It's been a minute since I've posted something from Piph, and I wasn't expecting this one at all. The instrumental is on some super feel-good summertime ish, sounds like something Andre3000 would('ve) rapped over. For all of the negative and dark music I get passed, its good to hear someone with a more hopeful message.

Junclassic "Beginning Of Days" (prod. by Husky): Here's a fresh cut to tide you over until the releases of Imaginary Enemies (which I've heard, and I'm digging), which has now been pushed back to September 22nd. Husky flipped this track and its featured on Imaginary Enemies as "Beginning", featuring Monsta X, but peep this version - one of those paranoia-induced vibin' tracks. Love the keys on this. Really sullen, but has a razor-sharp edge to it.

Yeah, I can take some time out for this. I've been trying to place the beat - I swear J. Rocc dropped this on one of his Thank You, Jay Dee mixes. Regardless, this is the fucking fire. All 3 bring that vintage Cuban Linx shit to this. So essential in my rotation right now. Maybe OB4CL2 WILL be ill!

Jay-Z ft. Drake "Off That"

1 Comment »

Jay-Z ft. Drake "Off That" (prod. by Timbaland): Well, I can see why Jay chose "Run This Town" over this one. I can't say I'm impressed. Is that just Drake on the hook? Is this what we've been waiting for? I mean, this is the obvious underside of the Hot 100-leaning "Run This Town"; this is Hova going for the clubs. Really trendy; I can hear Nelly Furtado or Lady GaGa reworking this. Is gonna be on the remix?

Slaughterhouse "Hot 97 Freestyle"


Slaughterhouse "Hot 97 Freestyle": So their freestyle from last week has finally hit your beloved Internets. I hate when cats make comments like "I'm sick of beefing", but then make a line about "not responding to a nobody". Hypocritical.

And let me say this: Slaughterhouse having an underwhelming first week of sales is not the fault of your Internets. Its their fault. Many sites were hyped about this project - present company included. The fact that four ill spitters linked up to do an album? Fucking phenomenal. The build-up to this project? Major! They seemed to be batting 1.000 every inning. But the first thing that tripped me up was Royce's interview, where he said "
maybe it could be better if we spent a whole lot of time on it". While he cleaned it up, it felt like he was making early excuses before it leaked...

Then it leaked. And many of us found out: this isn't as ill as it should be. Or maybe we overthought what it'd be. All four can spit (although I do subscribe to the school of thought that Joe Budden was the weakest link), but there was a lack of ill beats, and there seemed to be too many tracks where it was just bars for the sake of bars. The supposed "deeper" tracks didn't crack off like they should've, and it just ended up being "iiight". But its not just that: it was was the full cookie. They jumped into it on some fire and brimstone shit, and the album was a lukewarm sizzle. And their press closer to the album (aside from Joe Budden's Black Eye) was pretty shitty. Hell, they went on Hot 97 the week this came out and didn't want to talk about too much, and gave a lackluster freestyle to Ciph and Rosenberg! DJ Green Lantern got an 18 minute Tour de France, and the #1 radio station for Hip-Hop and R&B got a marathon for third graders. There was no real push in terms of getting the public to get what they were doing... basically, for an album made for fans of lyrical art, in 2009, 18K CDs sold is probably a good thing.

But its not the Internets fault. Make a quality album, something that's undeniable, and niggas will support you 'til the cows come home. Come with some weak lay-up line bullshit, and you catch a seat on the bench.

I said it before, and I'll say it again: the best albums in 2009 are free.

Adrienne Bailon "Superbad": For today's Unnecessary Leak From A Dime Piece, sepia semi-nude Adrienne Bailon drops this horrendous reach on the masses. Why we needed another synth-driven, Auto-Tune laced club snoozer is beyond me. Tracks like this either get quickly forgotten, or become the anthem of the clubs for the rest of the summer. Hopefully this falls in line with the former, not the latter.

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of August 19, 2009 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.

Our commentary this week focused on more of the crazy nonsense happening at the U.S. "Town Halls" about Health Care (including people standing outside with assault rifles and handguns) and how they're more and more becoming a huge barometer of the issues people still have with race & class in this country, U.S. Football player Michael Vick's release from prison & his interview on 60 Minutes, the passing of journalist Robert Novak and some other things here & there.

This week we had an interview with up and coming independent Hip-Hop MC Rockstar (

Some of the topics we covered with this very talented young MC was his influences (family, in music and otherwise), how it has been working as an independent MC though the years, especially in his area of the U.S. South, doing good business, how to use the Internet & how NOT to use it properly, his "1 A.M. Tour", upcoming music projects and lot of other things!

This week we don't have new Black Agenda Report segment due to the length of our interview. The Direct EFX segments will return at the end of the HBCU's college summer break period in September 2009.
