Kounty Boyz ft. Tom G "My Niggas"

Kounty Boyz ft. Tom G "My Niggas": I dropped their "Get Lost Money" in my November 6th playlist, and got hit with a few more cuts from them, including this speakerbox buster. These cats rep Tampa, FL, and word is they're signed to Sony. While I throw the pause to them talking bout their niggas being the hardest, but this isn't far from the mark at all. if you're digging this, grab their Black Market mixtape. Big up to Money $Ron for the heads up.

EDIT And here's the video:

Suave The Ape "Product Of Hip-Hop"

Suave The Ape "Product Of Hip-Hop": Been a minute since I've had some new music from Suave The Ape, so it was a pleasant surprise when he hit me with this cut from his next mixtape, Jazz Poems Of Naturalism, which is said to drop December 3rd. If you dig that mid-90s flavor, you need to get up on this one.

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of November 17, 2009 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.

Our commentary this week focused on the terrible situation with the death of 5 year old Shaniya Davis in North Carolina, Sammy Sosa's obvious issues with skin color (SMH at the bleaching scenario saying it was a "skin softening treatment" later on) and how that reflects on the ingrained "if you're Black, get back" physical mentality along with some other things here and there.

We had another great interview this week with author, businessman & activist Professor Devin Robinson ( of Going Against The Grain Group (, Taking it Black University ( and The Black Hair Project.

We touched base on the current 1 week national U.S. boycott of non-Black owned Beauty Supply stores and how that ties into what Prof. Robinson calls a constant "economic hate crime" that occurs all over the United States to the Black Community in regards to the road blocks in establishing one's own businesses in comparison to other ethnic groups, the exchange of money within the community and other things here and there!

There are new episodes of Black Agenda Report and Direct EFX segments this week.

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

The ILLZ "Faded"

The ILLZ "Faded": For some reason, whenever I'm listening to (2)Dope Radio (shouts to Meka), we go in - well, I go in. Last night, I had some good chatting going on, some hilarity ensued, and I got to speak with the homey ILLZ, who is a spitter from Jersey. Woke up this morning and he hit me with a new track, "Faded", which he describes as giving "a feeling of vulnerability and over coming obstacles. Through his motivational music he pushes you to keep climbing to your goal and never give up". If you dig this, keep it locked - The Pursuit is on its way!

[video] M.anifest The Birds & The Beats Vlog Episodes 1+2

The Birds & The Beats drops November 20th, aka this Friday!

Bonus Beats M.anfiest "Just Like A Lion" (prod. by Budo)

Kid Sister ft. Estelle "Step"

Kid Sister ft. Estelle "Step" (prod. by Rusko): Many of you should remember this when it was Rusko's "To The Floor". Kid Sister's signature style works surprisingly well over this - as if it was made for her. Was it? Who knows. Nice lil' ditty to set your sets off right.

MP3 via Music2liveby.

Stealth "Jackin' For Alchemist"

Stealth "Jackin' For Alchemist": Here's the first installment of Stealth's producer jack series. This first installment is all ALC. After he completes these, he will be dropping a mixtape entitled The Jack Move.

Next up: 9th Wonder.

[video] Crookers ft. Kelis "No Security"

Sene "Departure Time"

Sene "Departure Time" (prod. by Numonics): Usually when Johnny Numonics hits me with music, its from an act he's bigging up. This time, he leaks a track featuring Sene that he produced, taken from his forthcoming (IM KING-presented) album Being Cool Doesn't Pay The Bills, which drops in 2010 and is mixed by DJ RTC of Ruby Hornet. You need this. let this be the soundtrack to your next departure. Or the next time you puff trees. Whatever way you get up, get up.

Hood State Of The Union Episode 7

Leon As Danny Duberstein

Shouts to TSS for posting this. My favorite episode of all season, aside from "Denise Handicapped".

Hogan & Flair In Australia

Dear outside world:

This is when the barbs about "wrestling being fake" crack me up. Niggas wanna downtalk Pro Wrestling for days on end, but when they see niggas work, and niggas bleed, its like "oh shit, Flair fucked Hogan up!"

Big up to Australia for putting this Hulkamania tour on a national pedastal.

Or should I be bigging up Flair for doing what he does best?

Wordsmith ft. Various Artists "You Never Know"

Wordsmith ft. Kontact, BKLef, Siyam, Laelo Hood, LX, RhymeZwell, Whitefolkz, Reub, Fred Knuxx, Philly Swain, & Jakk Frost "You Never Know" (prod. by Dirtwork): Here's a sick pose cut from the forthcoming Overdue & Underrated mixtape from Words (which will be distributed by Coast 2 Coast, HipHopDX and 2DBz). This beat is tough, very big sound, and all MCs touching down on it go for theirs. Blast this one!

The DTV Beat Tape

Whether you're an MC in need of some free instrumentals or a true head who knows there's nothing like a collection of sick beats to help you through your work day, you'll find Deal - The Villain's The DTV Beat Tape to be extremely satisfying. His beats go down easy and don't come up rough - and if you're trying to get on some of NJ's heat, hit DTV up via twitter. Tell 'em khal sent ya.

D Goode "Go Hard"

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"

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.

"If this David vs. Goliath, then Goliath is YOU!"

[video] Robin Thicke "Sex Therapy"

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!

Brokn.Englsh The Drawing Board

The wait is finallyt over: the Def Dom-produced album from Brokn.Englsh, The Drawing Board, is available for free over on Bandcamp. Experience some of the finest from Jersey, or keep necking w/ the cousin of death.

Scorcher ft. Terminator "Spartan Gang"

Scorcher ft. Terminator "Spartan Gang": Likkle bird told me that Logan Sama leaked this over on his blog, but the copy they leaked wasn't proper. Leave it to DJ Cable to go into the phone booth and emerge with a CDQ of this GRIME HEATROCK. If you fuck with Grime as a fan or DJ, you need this one. Turn them woofers up, bredren!

Leon Rainbow In Trentonian

Local graf artist Leon Rainbow got a dope lil' feature in today's Trentonian. Check out more of his work via his website.

[video] Beyoncé ft. Lady GaGa "Video Phone (Extended Remix)"

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

Aaliyah "Try Again (Belief Remix)"

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?

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"

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.

RIP Ken Ober

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.
