D Goode "Go Hard"

No Comments »

D Goode "Go Hard" (prod. by Centric): No, this isn't some freestyle over that new Rihanna jawn. This is some spacey R&B from Centric & D Goode's aptly-titled Babymakers, which drops in mid-2010. This sounds like the cousin of "Birthday Sex" - has that new school seduction about it. And don't you know, D Goode is from Trenton, Jersey!?!? Win win and win.

Also available is the "Stroke You Down" single from Centric's Alter Ego album. Shouts to Cy Yung for hitting me with all of this.

Mike Classic "The Comeback"

No Comments »

Mike Classic "The Comeback": It's rare that I'm feeling the exact way the track I get sent feels. Something about Mike's first verse - the fierce, no nonsense air about it - is right where my mind is right now. Hard to call this a comeback, b/c Classic ain't go no where. And hopefully he stays around for a bit - he has more iller music to bless the people with.

Owl City "Fireflies (Trillbass & E Tubbs Remix)"


Owl City "Fireflies (Trillbass & Etubbs Remix)": Hot off of their appearance on the Wu-Tang Enter The Dubstep compilation, TRiLLBASS (with E Tubbs, who didn't get producer credit on their "Keep Hustlin'" re-rub) hit me off with this mood dubstep smash. With their signature fat bass in tact, the vocal work is taken into the stratosphere on this one - dope melodies and drops are primed and ready for some anthem-smashin' at your next riddim fest. Hop on it!

Respect to 2sense for this one!

Aaliyah "Try Again (Belief Remix)"

No Comments »

Aaliyah "Try Again (Belief Remix)": Here's the first leak from Belief's Aaliyah Remix Project. Dude did a good job with this too - blends a few different styles; sounds like a live jam session with an '80s Hip-Hop set-up, but with some fatter basslines. The LA beatsmith has hooked me - let's see where he goes with this.

Shouts to Dunn Deal for this one!

Wu-Tang Enters The Dubstep: Win?

No Comments »

I'm undecided on this. The beats are knockin'... but this was the thing about THUGSTEP: many detractors wanted to hear different MCs over the beats, but you have to have a certain flow to go over dubstep. RZA isn't it - I was always of the mind that the Southern MCs like Lil' Wayne, or even cats who style like Eminem, worked much better over the beats. Or niggas like Elucid, who really know how to get in the pocket over the dubstep beats. But I won't be the deciding nigga - you be the judge. Check out these cuts from the project:

I'd love to get some of these insturmentals... that Parson riddim is my favorite right now. If you're feeling these, go cop Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture Vol. 2: Enter The Dubstep now.

The Lessondary "Check The Rhyme 2009"

No Comments »

The Lessondary "Check The Rhyme 2009" (prod. by Bidimridim): Kevin Nottingham has an A Tribe Called Quest mixtape coming with DJ Chong Wizard... what a better way to build a buzz that leak the Lessondary posse cut over a reconstructed version of "Check The Rhime"!? Jermiside, A Brother Named George, Von Pea, Don Will, Ilyas and Elucid link up and decimate this riddim - can't wait for the full release to drop. Might wanna burn something and put this one on repeat.

Some random news... comedian Ken Ober, who many remember from hosting MTV's Remote Control (which I spent countless hours watching while eating dinner on a He-Man TV tray), passed away yesterday at the age of 52. if you fucked with MTV at all during its first decade, you saw him on MAD shows... grew up watching his ish. Damn. Rest in power.

Fresh Daily "A BreastFull"

No Comments »

Fresh Daily "A BreastFull": All comedy is rooted in the truth, so with that, I present to you "A BreastFull", Fresh Daily's ode to tittays, over Drake's "Successful". It's comedy, but you know a lot of you niggas feel the SAME WAY about squeezing on those breastises. FD also asks that you "Consider this the prequel to "Two In The Shirt" produced by Exile on my debut album Gorgeous Killer", which makes perfect sense.

I'll be dropping a review on this soon, but lemme tell you - dude got some SHIT on that album. This leak is just another example of the good job Def Jux did in signing dude. And I'm hearing the album drops this month. Fingers crossed.

Elucid "Cheap Suit" / "Pandemonium" Digi-Single

No Comments »

I told you this was coming, but didn't realize Elucid had it dropping so soon! For all of the free ish that gets put out, plunking down $2 to grab the "Cheap Suit" digi-single is what's up. You get the amazing "Cheap Suit", as well as the El Carnicero-produced "Pandemonium", which has been sitting on my harddrive for a month and gets constant burn. Sick futuristic sounds on that one. Preview both tunes below...

Drake "Best I Ever Had (DnB Bootleg)" [radio rip]

1 Comment »

Drake "Best I Ever Had (DnB Bootleg) [radio rip]": Here's a radio rip of the DnB bootleg of Drake's biggest track so far, "Best I Ever Had", taken from Fabio's latest show on Radio 1. I have some suspicions on who rinsed this one, but I have no concrete word. Shit's smooth, though. No word on if/when this might hit the shops, but I imagine this should be dropping - its too dope not to.

Been a long time coming for this album from Markfader. Pound 4 Pound features fresh beats alongside some dope rhymes, many from The Antidotes Crew. If you're looking to sleep on something this year, don't let this album be the one. You need this.

Tom Chase The Oddisee Experiment

St. Joe Louis' Tom Chase has flipped an EP produced and inspired by wonder-producer Oddisee. You should already know how sick of a producer Oddisee is, and with Tom's proficiency as an MC, he fits perfectly over these choice beats. Dude has more heat on the way, and of course SJL has some shit on the way, too, so use this as a primer on what's to come. Elite Assembly, bitches!

Bonus Beats Rihanna "Mad House" [NOTE you should remember this Chase & Status-produced banger as the track that MURS sounded like ass on from that Dubstep LA mixtape, or from plenty of mixes over the year. I'm not mad at what she did to the track, but this riddim is too big to be a Pop album intro. BIG look for Chase & Status, though!

Quest For A Cure (12/19/2009)

No Comments »

I love seeing people using their talents for a good cause. Quest MCODY hit me up with this, and I'll just post the information here:

Quest for a Cure partners with Michigan Music Community to Dig Deep For Ben’s Fight Detroit, MI—December 19, 2009—On April 23, 2009 Benjamin Martin, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma—a cancerous brain tumor. He is eight years old.

Since being diagnosed Ben has undergone several brain surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation. He was doing well for a short time, but at the beginning of September, the tumor returned with a vengeance and is now near the brain stem. Doctors do not feel like Ben is a candidate for further surgeries, so the family is seeking alternative treatment at the Burzinski Clinic, a major international cancer center providing alternative cancer treatments. The problem? Like many stories of American medicine, Ben's insurance will not cover the “experimental” treatments, and his mother, determined to go to the ends of the earth to help her self-proclaimed superhero son fight, is making the sacrifice. With this treatment Ben’s chances of survival increase significantly. And we all deserve the best chance we can get. A fighting chance!

On December 19, 2009 a glimmer of hope will shine bright as the Quest For A Cure Foundation partners with and the Michigan music community to pack the infamous St. Andrews Hall from wall-to-wall with 1,000 fans, friends, family and patrons—to join the fight to save the life of Benjamin Martin. Proceeds will go towards helping Ben fight, in hopes that his success will increase the chance for other’s fight as well. Doors open at 9:00pm and the DJ will sound off what could go down as one of the greatest events in history. It will be a night of great music, great atmosphere and great fun for a fighting cause.

Quest for A Cure is an initiative focused on improving avenues that aid in the cure of hunger, illness and poverty—better known as H.I.P. The organization founder, Quest MCODY, will be one of the artists gracing the stage. He is known throughout the hip-hop community, and for his latest album The Light Project. He has recently been seen by millions on MTV’s Emmy award winning show MADE as a rap coach. The foundation was created from his inward desire to make a difference, save lives and to have a great time doing it.

Several of Detroit’s leading hip-hop, R&B and Rock artists will be taking the stage in support of this event. The line up will feature Quest MCODY along with artists such as Stretch Money, Invincible, PL, MonicaBlaire, Street Justice, Marvwon, K’Jon, Vina Mills, Seven The General and more.

Giving to Ben is more than a good cause. It is something that you're tied to emotionally and something that you would carry with you forever. And that is something that the world is missing. As the saying goes "keep hope alive!!" Lets do it today---in life.

General admission starts at $10 at the door. By purchasing your advance ticket using the link below you are admitted ONE guest at 1/2 off door price the day of the event.

Beanie Sigel ft. 50 Cent "I Go Off"

No Comments »

Beanie Sigel ft. 50 Cent "I Go Off" [clean \ dirty]: Even if Beans recycles some verses for this one, I still ride with it. Thing is, Beans doesn't really win off this one. Yes, we know he can spit - he been doing that for years. Grimey shit is nothing new to him. But he gains nothing but this. He essentially burns the Hov bridge (although you could argue that Hov did that already), but Fif is the only one to gain. He comes up with a catchy hook so we know he can do the damn thing, and he gets the last word. His signature darts at the end of the track are vintage 50, but its more about him vs. Jay than Mac vs. Jay. It's almost as if 50 had been saving these remarks until the right moment - and now he has it. Plus, this only bolsters the promo steam engine that is Before I Self Destruct...

End of the day, I just hope we get to hear a sick Sigel album soon... I'm just not sure him aligning with 50 Cent to put it out is the right move. Shouts to Miss Info for the CDQs.

Beyonce ft. Lady Gaga "Video Phone (Extended Remix)"

No Comments »

Beyonce ft. Lady Gaga "Video Phone (Extended Remix)": I never get into whatever the hell B is singing about, but she knows how to ride a bottom-heavy beat. Guess she's had years of practice. This is one of the hyped collabos between her and Lady Gaga, and while I'm not blown away, this one has a few ill moments, including the stabs during the breakdown. Wish they incorporated that more in the mix.

And is anyone else sick of these holiday season-ready re-releases of big albums? Put out an EP or something, damn!

Rihanna "Cold Case Love"

No Comments »

Rihanna "Cold Case Love" (prod. by Brian Knox): Finally got to hear another Rated R track, and damnit if YN didn't hit the nail right on the head with this one. Rather than try to perfect perfection, here's his take on the track:

This is the Justin contribution. He does his best Timbaland impersonation with a overly-produced and arranged wall of electronic sounds. She’s on a “dark and burning road”. She’s most angry here. This is the big FU CB tune. “What you did to me wasn’t right?” Now that’s an understatement. “We lost in love”. Quality lyrics but too damn long.
