Murs "Madhouse"

No Comments »

Murs "Madhouse" (prod. by Chase & Status): C&S' "Madhouse" has been on dubplate for a while, and the last thing it needed was weak lyrics, especially underwhelming bars from an MC the caliber of Murs. And you niggas wanna sleep on DJ Nappy and the THUGSTEP movement? Fuck you sideways. Dubstep LA drops their mixtape tomorrow (Sept. 9th) (tracklist via dubstepforum), but we got something for them motherfuckers, twice.

ROE "Fear"

1 Comment »

ROE "Fear": Sorry nation, but if you don't want to hear MCs over Drake's "Fear" track, you shouldn't post the instrumental. The homey ROE, fresh off a TSS feature, flips a quick verse over this lush beat. Will 2009 be ROE's year?

Rukus & J. Slikk Chasing Cars (The EP)

No Comments »

So, Rukus picked up the SLIKKstrumental beat tape and let it marinate. On the low, homey wasn't feeling the new trends within Hip-Hop production, and dipped back to that classic vibe that Slikk provided and started cutting tracks to them. We've dropped a few of these, and now the entire project, Chasing Cars, is available for the masses. It's too dope to really sleep on, so just download it.

RTD Presents The Beer Tab EP

No Comments »

At the beginning of the summer, myself and a blogging peer had an idea for an EP. For one reason or another, the project did not pan out like we'd hoped. Still in all, the tracks I received are of excellent quality, and its time I pay my beer tab, on Labor Day - the unofficial end of the Summer. So grab your favorite summer brew, kick back with some burgers and cool out to some beer-infused Hip-Hop.

DOWNLOAD

Tracklist:

01: Sean Wyze "Keystone (Pardon Me)" (prod. by Jansport J)
02: Jo Well & DJ DviousMindZ ft. Phenomenon & Konscious K "211's"
03: Brown Bag AllStars "Blue Moon" (prod. by J57)

Drake "Fear"

Drake "Fear" (prod. by DJ Khalil): Thank you, Drake. This is the way I'd like to hear Drake, more often. Sing the hook but come with that introspection in your rhymes. Kind of why I mess with "Successful" more than "Best I Ever Had". This Khalil production is the truth.

Oh yeah, this is the one new song on the So Far Gone EP that's going to be on sale soon. Shouts to Team Supreme for this one.

Roc Raida Injured

5 Comments »

While there's been no official word or explanation, the beat on twitter is that Roc Raida is in the hospital, having some kind of spinal surgery - I saw Talib Kweli mention an accident during a karate class? I don't know what the hell is going on with this Summer, I just hope he pulls through - he's truly a Grandmaster, and one of my favorite turntablists, ever. Need some proof?

Ghostface Killah "Stapleton Sex"

Ghostface Killah "Stapleton Sex" (prod. by Sean C & LV): Do you remember "Wildflower"? I know I sure do. This is that kinda GFK track. Nah Right put the "NSFW" in their post, and that's exactly what you need to know before putting this on. Angela Yee has the breakdown on this one.

The Jake ft. V-Zilla "Never Knew"

The Jake ft. V-Zilla "Never Knew": Word from The Jake is that he sent V-Zilla some music, and 24 hours later, this ended up in his inbox. Lush story of perfect love... lost. You ever been there?

This is taken from Anton's In Genius They Trust, which drops in December 2009. Shouts to Pugs for this one!

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of September 2, 2009 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.

Our commentary this week focused on the passing of U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy & his impact on laws in this country, especially those affecting women, People of Color and the poor, some upcoming album releases (including Whitney Houston's comeback) and some other things here and there.




We had our interview this week with Washington, DC's own activist & independent Hip-Hop MC Enoch 7th Prophet (http://www.enoch7thprophet.blogspot.com).

Some of the topics covered in this week's interview included Enoch's life & musical influences, the background on his performance name, his travels in the music industry & how they coincide with keeping regular life balanced in general, if some folks are really made to be that Hip-Hop MC/Performer, his latest project with the Data Frequency album (which can be purchased here), the Mental Salvation radio show, spirituality and a lot more!

This week due to the length of our interview we do not 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 2009 after Labor Day.

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

Rickie Jacobs x 9th Wonder "What A Day": if you are proper fans of 9th/Little Brother, you should be up on this beat. I've previously feature Rickie Jacobs for his production work for Articulate, and his rappin' has been found in a few playlists. He hit me off with this on some first dibbs shit, and he definitely keeps it as fresh on the mic as he does on the boards. He won't say he's working on a project, I got a feeling he has some shit up his sleeve, you smell me?

Xzibit ft. U-N-I "So What" (prod. by D1): Here's another cut from that Dubstep LA: Embrace The Renaissance Vol. 1 mixtape, which should've been out around the time Did I Do That? dropped. Based on the tracks that I've heard, this is pure crap. "Dub-Hop"? You kidding me? Don't get me started on all of the shit DJ Nappy threw out there; let's not even mention Elucid's dubstep leanings - well, at least the one's you've heard. Don't talk to me about Hip-Hop and dubstep merging - I've helped build this. Check out some of the other Dubstep LA tracks, but I have a feeling that this is going to be crappier than it should be.

Shouts to 2DBz for the premiere.
