Money First ft. Genrokka & Kilogram "Gettin' Money": I'm sorry, this cut is kind of mean right now. Trenton in the house as the Money First unit drops this fresh cut on you. If you want to live that "Lamborghini Lifestyle", you need to get that loot, so of course MF has to devote a track to this. Yes, that History Channel shit is real - trust and believe. Get yours.
Dre Robinson "The Reason (Greg's Fault)" (prod by Nelly ProToolz): Hah, the homey @GValentinoBall fucked around and told @DreRob to (his words) "quit playing around and rap"... Dre did just that and emerged with this heatrock. Cotdamn - Dre - QUIT PLAYING AROUND AND RAP! PLEASE!
Nucci Reyo "The Eagle" (prod. by Fresh Airez & Jag): Nucci is going kind of deep with this one - "One thing I think is vital in these days is that the preacher's not preach a gospel to the people that talks about life being so perfect and well with Jesus Christ as though there will be no trials and tribulations. As Christians, we go through things but the difference is that God is with us when we go through things. A terrible analogy would suggest that God is like an umbrella and the rain is inevitable, but either you are prepared with an umbrella or you aren't". Deep, especially in these trying times.

Oh No was tapped to remix a grip of Guilty Simpson tracks utilizing the Now-Again catalog. A bunch of these have been released/leaked in various pieces (and I've personally been playing the shit out of his "Killer" remix), and today Stones Throw has made them all available for download.

If you check out his blog, you know DJ Cable has been and will be on a roll with the DJ gigs. He just came back from Austria! So excuse the week lateness of this edition. Loads of Hip-Hop and Electronica, with some dubstep and Grime towards the end.
Yesterday, Slim Thug pissed off the Black Female Delegation with this article on Vibe, speaking on the need for Black Women to stand by Black Men more. The bol @EnigmatikBGDB has been toying with this new article idea, Are You Serious, and decided to pop that idea's cherry using this topic. I contributed a couple lines. Check it out, and be on the lookout for more AYS from BGDB.
Sic Osyrus ft. Mysonne "Good Evenin'" (prod. by Rhythm J): Hah this is a dope wake-up call for you fucks who are sleepin' on that quality Hip-Hop. Dope beat - love the sample chopped up in there - is that Alfred Hitchcock Presents? I just caught that. That used to be my SHIT! Add some furious bars in here and there's nothing much to say but STOP SLEEPIN' or catch a dirt nap. Shouts to @RhythmJ for sending this.

Dane aka The Beautiful Monster "Sloppy Jalopy": We first got introduced to Dane (aka The Beautiful Monster) with "12 Hour Shifts", and this next cut, from his The Monsterous Collection mixtape, is more of that real life rap, this time rockin' an homage to his hoopty. I know a lot of you keep it fresh, even if your mode of trans isn't really poppy. Dude bounces nicely over this thick kickin' anthem. Shouts to GSHH and ACRC.
Bonus Beats Dane aka The Beautiful Monster "The Anesthetic"
Neako "Chief Rocka 2010" (prod. by K-Def): Jersey's own revisits a NJ classic, reworking Lords of the Underground's "Chief Rocka" for DJ Booth's freestyle series. Word from GFCny is that a video for this will be dropping Wednesday, so be on the lookout for that one.

This fucked up my afternoon. Not sure what the deal is with this, especially since the audio on it is pretty awful, but from what I gather the Polo hat wearing nigga asked Lil' B to call Soulja Boy and put some Berkley niggas on. I can understand B kind of being like "why you putting me on the spot, go 'head", but dayum - neph then goes in and hits B with a bunch of punches. B should've stayed in the chair, though, because that last hit is the game ender.
Looks like a total set-up, considering that once they give him the end shot, they are Michael Bolton. It's really a herb thing to do, but I can't stop watching it. Or the .gif.
EDIT Lil B explains what happened:
Still high off of "General Patton", I just got hit with the tracklist for Big Boi's Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty album, which is due out on July 6th. No Three Stacks, for those who were
wishing wondering... shouts to BoBO for this one.
Dutch New York "Can't Hide" (prod. by Dash): @DutchNewYork is leaking more material from Katrina Flood, and while last week's leak was a freestyle, this week we get a vintage-sounding original. Love the classic vibe in the beat, and it sounds like it made DNY step back and give you a glimpse of his life to now.
Atari Blitzkrieg "No More Noize": Holy 8bit Hip-Hop, here's something from A.B.'s AlphaBetaC EP, which is available for free right the fuck now; producer Krohme produced a cut that features C-Rayz Walz. This is just some tough, different stuff to vibe to. You know how we do here - might have to find out what's really really poppy with Atari Blitz!
Word is Godsendant Music will be dropping the full release in July.
Sene "The Hype" (prod. by Tranzformer): Unleashing more from the non-Reality Bites stash, Sene comes with another banger. Makes me think of the moves I make in my own ventures, and while in one circle heads think I've done a lot, but outside of those circles, I ain't done shit. Don't let hype kill your dreams. Shouts to J57, who says Sene has some heat with The Clubhouse on deck.
previous Sene "Love, Me"
Cape Verde drops digitally on June 22nd, physically on July 13th.
previous Super Chron Flight Bros "Reggie Miller"
Tef Poe ft. Kyjuan & Luey V "Showstealers (Remix)": The original appeared on The Redeemer, and now Poebama has enlisted St. Lunatic Kyjuan & Luey V for the remix to this HBCU marching band-flavored BANGER! Shit like this needs to be played during football games and shit. I'd rock to this one. Poe's "Waka Flocka with the brain of a Black Panther" line kills it... murder.
Shouts to IREPSTL.
TDome ft. Von Pea "Another Workday 2: OT" (prod. by Huck B): Everyone's a rapper, but not everyone can just rap for a living, you dig? In this continuation of "Another Workday", TDome and Von Pea speak on the balance of your 9-5 clock punchin' and the 5-9 artist crunchin'. Hopefully my niggas can get their brass ring, so we can all eat off this industry, instead of dying for a living and killing ourselves for the industry.
Family Affair "Sunshine": Something a bit heavier from Rep & QB, the duo known as Family Affair, who are also members of the STL conglomerate THE FORCE. This single is taken from Welcome To The Underground, which I'm told drops on iTunes on June 15th, so grab this freebie, support that good Hip-Hop and keep THE FORCE movement going skrong!
Freed Slave "Prince": Freed Slave is the rappin' AKA for a friend of mine, Bryant. Homey is part of the next breed of MCs out there... trying to find his way in this new America, currently in school and putting his thoughts and feelings to the beat. I know he's been rapping for a bit, but this is the only track he's sent, and its definitely different - the beat is intriguing, and the way he's flowing reminds me of something from 15, 17 years ago - really interesting mix, especially if you're not trying to keep the current "urban radio playlist" on repeat. Deep stuff in here, check it out.
Big Boi "General Patton": Wow, the intro alone makes this shit sound super epic, but once Big Boi kicks his verse, this sounds like a proper statement, a call to arms - essentially, if you didn't fuck with Big Boi for whatever reason, get your mind right and realize that homey is the truth. I was half-excited for Sir Lucious Leftfoot, but this and "Shutterbugg" have me officially ready.
Shouts to Rap Radar.
Diggy Simmons ft. Bei Maejor "Great Expectations" (prod. by Black The Beast): I haven't been keeping up with the Hot 97 Summer Jam 2010 rumors/gossip/news, but apparently Diggy will be appearing there tomorrow. I've never been, but being in the position I'm in (a writer/blogger from Jersey), I feel like I should be out there... like its an expectation. Many might expect Diggy to be a Lil' Run, but he's his own dude, and while this isn't really my flex, I'm not mad at him. He knows what the fuck is poppin' right now, and I can't front - homey can flow. You can hear the progression, you feel me? Don't be surprised if this pops up on your radio station's playlists... his mixtape, Airborne, is on the way.
Tru Fam ft. Qua "Lollipop Girl": Damn. The thing that kills me about Jersey is that it's a real melting pot, and the influences and styles of artists living in the Garden State varies from city to city. Tru Fam represents the Pop-side of NJ, with some tracks that sound skraight off your local Pop stations, you feel me? There's that Hip-Hop/R&B feel to it, but it has those catchy hooks. Not particularly what I'm trying to hear all day, as I'm an ornery old nigga of 28, but I wouldn't be mad if the kids rocked their Boom Box Love mixtape around me.
Here's some other shit. I threw out the promo track that duce did for this, and the full project from .miDDLecLassmen, CanteensForFloodgates, and I can't say honestly that I get it on the first spin. It's one of those intriguing projects that truly requires either multiple listens or one long, uninterrupted listen. Probably helps to have a fat sack of that boom with you rolled up and ready. Beats from duce, Jean Luc, Chase Leak & Carlito. If you like your Hip-Hop with a singular sound, check this one out.

Three 6 Mafia ft. Project Pat & Billy Wes "Keep My Name Out Yo Mouth" [clean | dirty]: If you know me, I love my Hip-Hop in all varieties - Hip-Hop needs balance, and I take the intellectual with the ignant. Triple 6 is all about the hood anthems, and this is the best of theirs I've heard since "Ugh Ugh Ugh". Just a fat-bottomed bassline with a pretty ghetto theme/hook - I mean, how many fights have you heard, especially between females, where someone was told to "keep my name out ya fucking mouth, you don't know what the fuck you talkinbout!"? Drop this on some unsuspecting nigga folk, see their heads bop. Trust.

Raekwon, Eyes Low, Bad Luck, Cappadonna & Method Man "Made Men" (prod. by DJ Mathematics): A couple of days ago, a tagged version of this track premiered via the Killer Beez Promo team. This was a track that didn't make it onto the Wu-Massacre CD, but is now the first single from Mathematics' album. Looks like Math and Eyes Low have Love & Loyalty dropping, so be on the lookout for this... matter of fact...

Tha Dogg Pound "Dogg Pound Gangstaz"
Enjoy the weekend, skaters.
Joe Budden "Something To Ride To" (prod. by J Cardim): I got sent this track twice in the last 16 hours, so it must be important. Oddly enough, the latest solo work of Budden's that I've dug are with J Cardim. Why he doesn't do a whole project with him is beyond me... but yeah. And the title is sort of confusing, seeing as he let's you know through the whole hook that this isn't something you would indeed want to ride to. Nigga still has bars, though, and that's all that counts.
DJ Khaled ft. T-Pain, Ludacris & Rick Ross "All I Do Is Win (Cuz Cole Remix)": Teddy Pain uses an instrument on his vocals, so the bol @CousinCole uses Teddy Pain's vocals as an instrument. Proper Friday night Bmore funktastical jam right here. DJs, get on this one!
8thW1 & Homeboy Sandman "Harm Music": What's good, party people? This cut is a special modified "party version" of "No Harm", a cut from No Room For Dessert that features 8th, Sandman, Reef The Lost Cauze and Von Pea. "No Harm" drops digitally on the 15th of June, while No Room For Dessert drops on July 27th. Enjoy!

Shouts to my Internets Celebrities bredren for this. I was lucky enough to check this out last week, and it's one of my favorite pieces of their catalog. Here's some more info on this video:
"It's hard being a sports fan these days."
Stadium Status is a documentary which examines the rush of new sports stadiums in NYC as the latest example of an obscene national trend. New stadiums are built every year and the private businesses that own them benefit from huge sums of public money for their creation. Are we getting our money's worth?
Internets Celebrities are Dallas Penn, Rafi Kam and director Casimir Nozkowski
Featuring Neil deMause and Killian Jordan
Additional Cinematography - Ian Savage
Original Music - Bless-1
Stadium Status was funded by fans of the Internets Celebrities via Kickstarter including a sponsorship from our friends at DIYThemes -- the company behind the Thesis theme for Wordpress. We are grateful for everyone's support.

Jones Andrews "Celebration (Anticipation)" (prod. by Casino Music Group): Even though we just got First In Flight, Last To Land, FSM representer Jones Andrews threw out this new joint of his, which is made for those who need some motivation on reaching their goals, primarily b/c you KNOW there's going to be a super celebration once you reach it. I know I need that mantra in my life.
Nucci Reyo ft. A-Natural "Anywhere But Bed" (prod. by King I Divine): New track from Jersey's own Nucci Reyo, with an interesting message they say is "driving home the point that all men are not the same in regards to viewing woman solely as objects of lust. There are woman out there who are living for God and know they are worth waiting for and this is a song about how the encounter with them goes".
previous Nucci Reyo ft. Elete "Mean What I Say"
Jazz Spastiks ft. Junclassic "Hot Shit!": Been a minute since I've heard some new Jun, so to hear him over some jazzy flavors from the Jazz Spastiks' 12 Bit Spit album is dope. This album also features cats like The Primeridian and Wes Restless among many others - give it a preview over on Amazon and cop if you're digging!
This is the official leak of GHOST TRAIN, an unofficial collabo over DATSIK's "Mechano" from my upcoming EP/Mixtape “DJ SOLO – Hated In The Nation”. The mixtape will feature 5 original DJ SOLO rap tracks over dubstep beats mixed in between my latest original remixes and bootlegs. Also on the mixtape will be Nirvana, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Metallica, and Snoop Dogg, “hosted” by the ultimate punk rocker himself, GG Allin!! Get ready.
Copywrite "Poorly Promote This": Word. There was always word on conflict within the Eastern Conference label fam, and Copywrite speaks on his attempts to work with DJ Mighty Mi from High & Mighty about re-released The High Exhaulted. From what MAC Media sent, "Copywrite had approached Milo over a year ago about wanting to re-release his debut album since there was never a formal contract between the two he felt there would be no issue. Milo however felt differently and would not give Copywrite permission to include a couple of the tracks that Milo had done production for on the re-release. Copywrite accepted that but insisted that T.H.E High Exhaulted be taken down off of iTunes and anywhere else Milo might have it for sale. A year later Milo still has not done this. "Poorly Promote This" was born out of Copywrite's frustration with how Milo and Eon handled the promotion of his first record and the recent chatter that has been heard about him re-releasing his classic debut". Shit is crazy - makes me remember I used to rock to all of their music, and like none of them are cool anymore. Copywrite isn't one to fuck with though, nahmean? T.H.E. High Exhaulted 8th Anniv. Edition dropped on June 1st.

Eternia & MoSS ft. Rah Digga & Rage "The BBQ": That limited-edition vinyl EP for At Last drops on June 8th via Fat Beats. It features "It's Funny" and the "It's Funny" remix, alongside this cut "The BBQ" and a "BBQ" remix featuring Jean Grae and Tiye Phoenix! Love hearing quality females knockin' out some sick Hip-Hop, nahmean? Cop this!
