Here's another leak from The Revalation Will Be Televised: Commercial Interruption, which drops on Refined Hype, Dot Got It and Rock The Dub on December 31st, 2009.

This story reeks of #bitchassness, but it makes me laugh:

PreZZure "Exhibit Me"

PreZZure "Exhibit Me":Why yes, this is definitely PreZZure adding his furious styles over Jay Electronica's "Exhibit C". That Just Blaze instrumental is too tough to let only one nigga rap on, although I think some of my peers will only tolerate a certain kind of nigga going in. By the power of the Internets, I got this pretty fresh out the oven, literally about an hour ago, and now it's yours. And for the six minutes PreZZ goes in on, this might be my favorite line:

"I love my older brother but my songs ain't on his radar". Too tough.

Revalation ft. M-Dot "Heart of the City"

Revalation ft. M-Dot "Heart of the City": Here's another leak from the Refined Hype x Dot Got It x Rock The Dub presented The Revalation Will Be Televised: Commercial Interruption, which is set to drop on December 31st. From Rev - ""Heart of the City" is obviously done over the classic Jay-Z beat of the same name. In this version I decided to recruit some EMS help and got my homie M-Dot on the track. He kicks off the track reflecting on Boston and the fact that there "Ain't No Love" so to speak in the city at times but he embraces love or hate because it comes with the territory. I continue on the second verse speaking about New Bedford, MA aka Secret City and I go into detail about lack of love and support as well within the city for it's own artists and compare it to the likes of a basketball game with haters sitting on the sideline jealous while I'm starting". Keep it locked!

Who knows I sure didn't, Ciph did end up posting this. I'm a pro wrestling nerd (well, I'm a nerd in general), so I'll be tuning in, although I'm also waiting for the "Christmas Snoop-tacular".

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

Our commentary this week focused on the Golden Globe nominations for the movie Precious and it's possible effect on Black Hollywood and it's images, the stereotype shoe being placed on the other foot with MTV's reality TV show Jersey Shore and some other things here and there.

This week we had a great interview with independent producer, songwriter, guitarist and Hip-Hop MC David E. Beats (

Some of the topics we touched based on with the Washington, DC native (now currently living in Brooklyn) was how he became interested in music in general, why he felt the need to move from the DC Metro to NYC to make some extra moves in his career, some of the things he likes and dislikes about the music industry, some upcoming projects and other things!

There is a new episode of Black Agenda Report this week but no new Direct EFX segment (did not receive before broadcast recording time).

Young Money "Streets Is Watchin'"

Young Money "Streets Is Watchin'" (prod. by David Banner): While the beat > the lyrics on this one, I love Weezy's "bitches, get to steppin' like Cole, Gina, Tommy" line. Leaks poppin' up all over, you know? This track > the rest of We Are Young Money > Rebirth.

They wasted the beat, though - Drake shoulda got on this one.

Duece Poppi "It's Kushmas Again"

Duece Poppi ft. Wanda Fey "It's Kushmas Again": OK so when I saw this in my inbox, I was straight up going to dismiss it for the ridiculous image that came with it (see above), and, well, the whole idea of it. Oddly enough, the way they flipped it and interpolated their kush-love to a Christmas tune... I'm not mad. My wife would be, but I'm not.

This is either very genius or very fucking ignorant. It's somewhere in the middle. I just... I don't even know LOL. Shouts to Kristen at Cashmere.

D.Julien "Prove Them Wrong"

D.Julien "Prove Them Wrong" (prod. by Buzz): It's been a bit since I've gotten some music from D.Ju, but fear not - this fresh cut is what I'm about right now. In his words: "if you've ever been chasing a dream, had a goal and was focused but had negative setbacks and/or negative figures/people signaling that your mission was impossible, then you'll feel this song wholeheartedly.". This is the kind of anthem our people need, not the d-boy dull shit. Prove 'em wrong, folk.

Good luck!

Juan Epstein x Clipse (12/16/2009)

Season 3 of Juan Epstein is moving along swimmingly; they've got The Clipse in for the second time, and I'm not mad... although they did tease a Snoop Dogg Juan Epstein on yesterday's morning show. I guess we'll have to wait on that?

The Roots "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Sandiwches" EP

I don't watch Jimmy Fallon or much late night TV anymore, but if I did, the fact that The Roots are Fallon's house band would be an instant reason to catch his show nightly. Anyways, this is a collection of "sandwiches", or small sets that The Roots crew plays during various parts of the show. They've amassed something like 1,000 of them since March, and ?uestlove decided to liberate 22 of them into this platter of aural pleasure, if you will. I just threw it on about an hour ago and I am in heaven.

Intuiton "Lonely"

Intuiton "Lonely" (prod. by Equilibrium): Here's a slick tribute to the sidepieces. I didn't know what to expect at first, but as the beat fleshed out, and In went, um, in, I had to admire the balls it took to pen this. Girls Are Gonna Like Me drops December 21st.

Daniel Joseph "Gone Fishin' (Kick The Verse Pt. 2)"

Daniel Joseph "Gone Fishin' (Kick The Verse Pt. 2)": Here's a quick one from the homey Espee over a timeless Black Milk instrumental; this is taken from his Gone Fishin' mixtape, which is set to drop on New Years Eve. No games on this one - straight spittin' on you niggas.

Strong Arm Steady ft. Phonte "Best Of Times": That SAS x Madlib album In Search Of Stoney Jackson is available via Stones Throw right now; its retail/iTunes release is on 1/26/2010. It's too too tough. Highly recommend you grabbing this shit right now if you need a pick-me-up.

Bonus Beats Strong Arm Steady "Two Pistols" [via Nah Right]

Snoop Dogg "I Wanna Rock" (instrumental)

Snoop Dogg "I Wanna Rock (instrumental)": There are a lot of "I Wanna Rock" freestyles/remixes coming out of the woodworks, so I figured - why stop the train? If you hear an influx of freestyles/remixes on this beat, feel free to blame me.

Elite Assembly "Poker Face"

Rob Jay "Serious"

Rob Jay "Serious": We dropped the sampler something like two months ago, and over the weekend, Rob hit me with this exclusive. Very impressed with his output, and something about this cut just makes me wish Video Rob Is Dead was out right now, but I believe dude is currently finishing it up.
