Gerald Walker ft. Streetz 'N' Young Deuce "I Got Ya": Apparently, Walker did like 52 demos for his I Remember When This All Meant Something... project (which drops on July 16th), and this is one of them. Skraight up Midwest unity w/ Chitown's Walker linking with them Milwaukee boys. I'm a fan.
previous Gerald Walker "Killer Season"
K.MC "The 1st Song": K.MC reps Fort Worth, TX, and is looking to put out his Young, Black, and (Reck)less project soon. Definitely not the best MC I've heard out there, it's actually kind of "flow-by-numbers" shit, but you might dig this. He's another cat who considers his grind "a movement", which is cool, but that term's overused. We need new terms in 2010. We on a mission? A journey? My life is an expedition? Who knows...
Bonus Beats K.MC "Hold Ya Head"
Bonus Beats Nas & Damian Marley ft. K'Naan "Africa Must Wake Up" [via BGDB]
previous Nas & Damian Marley Distant Relatives Music Meeting (Pt. 2)
Khizman "Back In The Mix" (prod. by Keelay): Here's a leftover that didn't make it to Khizman's Trophy Winner EP. Shit's ill, too - love the fuzzy bass on this one. Khiz is working on a project for the summer, The Virginian Pilot, so keep it focused for this one.
Here's the long-awaited EP from Brooklyn's own Sene, which is presented by DJ Booth, 2DBz, Kevin Nottingham and Ruby Hornet. Dude's a lyrical wizard, and he welcomes cats like Von Pea, Co$$, Outasight, Tunji and more to this ill project. Hit the jump for the goods.
L.E.G.A.C.Y. "By The Time I Get...": Latest edition of The Month Of Mayhem, with Legs going super hyphy rockstar over Public Enemy's "By The Time I Get To Arizona" instrumental. Full of venom, this freestyle from May 2005 was used as promo for Project Mayhem. Vital.
Bonus Beats L.E.G.A.C.Y. ft. Edgar Allen Floe "2 Sided Coin (original)" (prod. by 9th Wonder)
Krukid "U.G. Chillin'": A.R.M.'s Krukid goes in over one of my least-favorite Wale tracks. Watch out for A.R.M.'s Two Africans and a Jew Vol. 1, which is dropping digitally and in limited physical quantities on May 11th; if you're in Minnesota on May 30th, they're also playing at Soundset.
Gripz "Journal" (prod. by Vherbal): Newest/latest from Gripz, who does a gang of work. If you're missing his work over on 2DBz' (2)Dope Freestyle Fridays, do the knowledge. This cut is taken from Poetic Literature 3, which should be presented by 2dopeboyz and rockthedub. Keep it locked for more on this!
Everliven Sound ft. Lola Maxwell & RAtheMC "Mr. & Mrs. Right" (prod. by Mr. Joeker): Wow. Didn't know what to expect, but this smoothed out track is perfection. Love the samples and loops Joeker flipped throughout this one. Cymar is kind of poetic/poetry jam with his at times, which works well. This is another leak from Freedom of Speech: The Last Word Benders, which is out on the 10th of May.
previous Everliven Sound "What Should He Do"
Wes Fif "Blue & White Ignite" (prod. by Lex Luger): This might be the anthem that @DwightHoward might need to get him and his Orlando Magic hyped for the #NBAP10 this year. @WesFif puts on for his city with this one - I'd love to hear the Nets anthem, but hearing "Hit The Road Jack" 100x in a row can get annoying. Who you got in the playoffs this year?

Donwill & Von Pea ft. Jermiside "Syrup Sandwich": For the latest Sandwich Shop leak, Don, Von and Jerm beast over "Sizuuuuuuuurpin", my favorite Sandwich from The Roots. And they do it justice. Just like a good syrup sandwich, this is just some classic flavor. Real old school, posse cut, three MCs dropping bars then passing. Yeah, this is my favorite off the Sandwich Shop, and its only the 2nd leak.
The Sandwich Shop... 'cuz hoes gotta eat too is dropping May 10th(ish).
previous Donwill & Von Pea "Cheesesteak"
Guilty Simpson "Friends Only" (prod. by Madlib): I figured this was going to be a documentary about a guy who in high school was cool with a lot of pretty girls, but was only considered a friend... then I realized that I just described my four years of HS, and this track has Guilty mashing out a woman who's man is doing her wrong. This is available on 45" when you order OJ Simpson, so do that.
Via Nah Right.
Been a minute since we first heard leaks from this, and I'm glad that Nova Scotia's own @Ritchcraft has released his The Big Band Blueprint project, mixing big band jazz w/ Jay-Z's classics: "the tape is a combination of production genius and hip-hop history, Jay-Z’ vocals float over the elegant sounds & swing of the early 1930s". Stream it below, and if you're feeling, hit up his Bandcamp for the download.
Wordsmith "Rock The Crowd" (prod. by Strada): Here's a cut from Wordsmith's Vintage Experience, which is available right now on quality digital outlets, like Amazon for example. Really funky, guitar-driven/drenched number from Words, who seems at home over these slappers. Go grab the album, you won't be disappointed!
Soem video from DJ Premier's Guru Salute on Friday. Seeing Preem cut up "Betrayal" is awesome. I coulda listened to that all day. Below is a stream from Rosenberg's Tribute last night:

Shouts to Nah Right. EDIT And check out this mural for Guru in Europe.
We've not been blessed with a new episode of Take It Personal since December 2009, and I don't know if it was my wishes, or the death of Guru, but @ElliottWilson, @danamo and @caughtintheweb linked up this weekend and dropped a new episode of T.I.P. on us:
Just when you thought it was safe, danyelliott has returned. Our first podcast of 2010. Is this a full-fledged comeback? We don’t know yet. But we did enjoy havin’ Sam back in our home and choppin’ it up on a range of topics—from Brooklyn’s Gorilla Coffee (Eureka! Monday soon come) to the sonic punch of “Thoia Thoing” to Kat Stacks. But obviously, the main reason we ended the hiatus of our popular podcast is the passing of Keith “Guru” Elam.

Random "Pain In My Heart" (prod. by EOM): Been a bit since I've heard some new shit from "aka @MegaRan", but this cut plays upon the trials and tribs of a relationship. Or not. The collaborative efforts of RandEOM (see what they did there?) will be dropping Language Arts, and EP idea that turned into some weird full album/comic book ting. I dunno; late Summer 2010, I might could have some details. Right now? Just dope music.
Kardi "AIDS Patient": You remember Kardi, right? Here's the homey going spazzville over the "I'm Ill" instrumental. Not much more to say - if you like your rhymers putting thought into the lyrics AND the way they are spit, this prodigy might be what you're trying to fuck with. Curveball status.
DJ Cable Vs. Joker & Ginz Vs. Three 6 Mafia "Stay Fly In Purple City": Here's a blend that Cable hooked up for his Xtra Guest Mix for MistaJam. In his words, "This was originally done as a mashup for my BBC 1Xtra Guest Mix for Mistajam back in February. I figured that it worked so well, I though I'd make it into a proper blend. I've called it a quick hitter as it's only the first verse and chorus; the reason being that the rest of the acapella doesn't fit so well with the whole tune. Also, like myself, most DJs like to mix quickly, so it's always nice to have something short and sweet with a clean intro and outro.". Also looks like there's a Fuck Thugstep Vol. 2 on the way!? Win!

Here's a pretty dope video that just got sent my way:
The Disablists & Foreign Beggars "Heavy Rotation"
Enjoy your weekend, and if you find some ends, share. One.
The first Hulked-Out Heroes comic wasn't really that ill to me. I tried sticking it out, but it ended up just seeming like another comic cashing in on Deadpool's shtick - but not really getting it. Not the way I saw a "Hulkpool" going, but to each his own. Newsarama has a preview of Hulked-Out Heroes #2 up; shouts to TDB.
previous [preview] Hulked-Out Heroes #1
Sene "Options" (prod. by Tranzformer): Here's another Reality Bites leak, courtesy of the homey J57. Love the old-school dream sequence loop in this. Love that dude really speaks that reality shit - and not just some "blue collar" raps, but really thought-provoking, alone by myself, evaluating my life type shit. But you already know that.
previous Sene "Follow Leaders"
jawnzap7 "Conundrums": Some ill lyrical exorcisms from Philly's own @jawnzap7. When I fucked with more backrap than a lil' bit, this was the type of hype that I geeked off of. Back when I used to think I could rap and shit lol. This is taken from the "Conundrums"/"Lillypads" maxi-single, which is serving as a sampler of jawn's I Hate My Stupid Little Life album. Stream both below, and remember that Philly runs this.
J-Ro "Bodyguard": Damn, I always like hearing new shit from the Likwit. This cut is taken from the Ro-Hab: Get Addicted album sampler, and from the looks of it, dude is not only determined, but he's got some HEAT for you. This has been out for a bit, but I imagine a lot of you might not be up on it, so GET ADDICTED!
Shouts to @j_ro_alkaholiks for the heads up!
Via Rap Radar: "Last night, on Shade 45′s Showoff Radio, Statik did a two-hour set highlighting cuts from Guru’s days with DJ Premier to his Jazzmattazz Vol 1-3 series. The mix includes releases, remixes, b-sides, and phone calls from Doo-Wop, Freddie Foxx, Consequence, and Chubby Chub".
