DJ Brace "NH 26"

No Comments »

Here's a fly instrumental that J57, aka McDuck, sent over the other day. You've definitely heard of DJ Brace - he's produced and provided cuts for a grip of BBAS tracks that I've posted on RTD over the last few years... and he's also won a Juno Award, as well as multiple DMC battles in Canadia. Word is he's humble, but he also holds onto a grip of music. Prolly from fucking with McDuck for all this time. Anyways, this is a fresh Fall-flavored instrumental from Synesthesia, brace's forthcoming instrumental album. Some shit to embark on a journey to. Has a throwback, live feel to it, with a lot of poignant samples and cuts. Really vibrant. Love this.

Wait - Torae hasn't released an album yet?! That's what fucks me upa bout #InternetsTime - these niggas will be on the tip of everyone's RSS feeds, mixtapes and features and freestyles out like clockwork, but they won't even have a proper album out. In any case, that will change as Torae will drop For The Record on the 1st of November. The jawn will feature cats like DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Nottz, Diamond D, Large Professor, 9th Wonder and more on the boards, with like three featured MCs. Shouts to @macmediapromo (whattup Matt!?!?!) for sending over this 8-minute sampler of tracks from the album. Enjoy that.

New mix from a fellow Internets. DJ Franchise turned 87 years young the other day... LOL nah he's a fine you DJ, and put together this new mix that got released today, all in the name of musical discovery. Genres be damned, this one features cuts from Amy Winehouse, Frank Ocean, Dwele, Ayah, Goapele, TV On The Radio, Toro Y Moi, ZO! & Phonte and plenty more. Rock to this one on a great afternoon... possibly the last great afternoon before Fall bites us in the ass. Pow.

New heat from The Two. Fifteens; some special spacetrip shit right here. Feels like floating with the clouds. I imagine everytime that bass hits, the clouds shake and form new figures. Love that these brothers can totally arrange their bass-heavy from something menacing for the night into something so vivid and beautiful. Crunked out ballet step right here. Effective When Used After... soon come.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't using this as an excuse to post a picture of Amber Rose. I sweat her. She just has a very unique look... and a fatty. Anyways, the Hip-Hop Internets exploded when they heard the venom she spewed about Funkmaster Flex, but when I heard her on Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg, I was really surprised. I shouldn't have been, but this was one of the few times I've heard her personality and whatnot. Philly stand up. But yeah, she has a fatty... but she also seems to have her wits about her. From what I heard on Hot 97, this should be chock full of info on her relationship with Wiz Khalifa, as well as her thoughts on people questioning why she's famous, why she won't throw shots at Kanye, and I imagine a grip of hilarity that missed the radio cut. Full interview, via Rosenberg.

I'm not the biggest Dexter fan - the homegirl Inaya always says I need to peep it, but I just haven't sat down with that first season. The homey DJ Concept, while finishing up the deluxe version of Heavy Smoke, decided to drop this beat tape, full of dark beats that he sorted out solely from samples from Dexter's score. I'd say go kill someone to this, but really you might want to just face a Dutch and play Halo or some shit to this. And if you MCs drop verses on ANY of these beats, email it to dexter@execute1200.com - he's working on a vocal version of M99.

Confession time: I never fucked with Seinfeld. I watched the "soup nazi" episode, but never got too hype over the show. Didn't get the pandemonium the finale brought, none of it. I know Jerry said "hello, Newman!" to the one character, but can't get into it. I can, however, fuck with YC The Cynic, and on this track that almost sounds like it's about nothing, YC goes in. Everyone fucks with YC, right? He's one of those up-and-coming niggas who gets that love from lowly bloggers like me, and legends like J-Live. Good reason, too. GNK is due out in February.

This some shit the god Dallas Penn sent over on Saturday. My schedule has been beyond fucked the fuck up, so my apologies for delaying the heatrocks to your Internets. In any case, this is that flyness that you lapse into when you're living life in your headphones... and swimming in whatever smoke or drink you're used to indulging in. Roc Marciano has a tough flow, and never tries to dumb down or bitch up his bars. Just real shit that you might miss if you're not being perceptive. Love how this MasterKraftsman beat flows, too. Dual sides, but they compliment each other so well. DP says that Roc's about to drop Reloaded in Q4 2011, and might dookie on the globe. If it sounds like this? I'll grab the Charmin.

Following up his awesome remix of "This Is Anger" (which is out now), Sheer Dropz flips the instrumental from their version underneath the classic Wu-Tang Clan "C.R.E.A.M." acapella.

What a year Has-Lo has had. Or at least seemed to have. I'm not sure what the buy numbers on his brilliant In Case I Don't Make It album were, but he has gotten a shitload of love from loads of spots, from my peers to my foes. In any case, I know he's working on a grip of music, including Conversation B, which is being touted as a "re-envisioning of In Case I Don't Make It", and he decided, alongside Illegal-Promo, to drop this EP of cuts from the Has-Vault. If In Case I Don't Make It was your first taste of Has-Charm, grab this EP and rock to some unearthed gems. Then get on the radio flyer and ride along with us!

Young Nigga "Come Threw Looking Clean"

I actually was dying over Tyler on Juan Epstein this morning, but the bullshit at my job had me miss this Young Nigga phenomenon. Apparently the clamor over the latest Odd Future signee shut down their site? If you saw the pic above, you couldn't really think it was a new member, though... right? Tyler forever comes with the different names and personalities and such, but this one is like fully realized. Kind of reminds me of Kool Keith's excursions into Black Elvis land, only this is a Lil B flavor. Fun shit. I really hope Expensive Pasta comes out, though.

Elucid "Demolition"

No Comments »

Cotdamn. This is one of those cuts that have had me open for a minute, and I actually brought it back out recently, and it knocks just as hard as it did when I first got it. Elucid is in my top tier of MCs because the nigga knows how to dismantle these Armageddon riddims with just as much rage against the machine that's needed. I know he had been working with producer A.M. Breakups for a bit, and this was one of the fruits of their labor. It actually features a snippet of my voice, too. Anyways, this is taken from the Backwoodz Studioz The Cost Of Living compilation, which features a motherload of tracks from the likes of Elucid, junclassic, Willie Green, billy woods, Vordul Mega and plenty more. Essentially, Backwoodz has a grip of albums coming from these guys (yes, Elucid has an album on the way!), so they had to showcase the dope shit on deck. Don't you even DARE sleep on this shit!

When I saw Q from TMB talking about a new cut from Adebisi and my homey Emcee Jermaine, that was some shit I ain't got. At the time. Now, you all got it. This one right here? Taken from Adebisi's The Blaxploitation Part 2, which is dropping in October. This won't be on the Jermaine EP, which I'll be dropping on RTD Records in the near future, but you know, both cats go in. I been digging Adebisi's ish, and Jermaine is the home team - even if we don't link up like we should. Working fathers got responsibilities. But eff all of that. It's Friday, go sit around the kitchen table and look over those bills and recognize the funds you ain't got. Or open up that fridge and count how many beers you ain't got. But once you go over the ain't gots, strap up those boots and figure out and to make them ain't gots get got. (c) R-Truth

I'm a bad friend. Well, I'm a busy friend. With all of the shit going on, some shit slips by, but I had to throw this up. The homey Tenacity is working towards I'm Different, a mixtape he's dropping on the 4th of October. It's mixed by DJ Rhettmatic and hosted by DJ House Shoes, so you should already know, neph isn't bullshitting. He sent over this, the third leak from I'm Different, which features one of my favorite MCs, Guilty Simpson, but I'm going to include the two previous leaks so you pimps know it's not a game. This one is big body fresh, something to rock LOUD in your whip.

The KhemLab "Put It To Rest"

Been a minute since I started talking about The KhemLab, a conglomerate of MCs that features cats from the Offshore Drilling project, as well as some additions, and over a number of starts and stops, we're proud to say that the project will be dropping next month. Don't ask for a day yet, doe. If you're like me, you've been living with a migraine. Just feel like there's a lot that are on our plates, and there's a bunch of bullshit trying to clog the pipeline of progress. Kind of like this project. What'd these guys do, though? Put their nose to the grindstone, set their sights on the prize and annihilated anything standing in their way. Main Course, junclassic and Sky 7th took this theme and beasted over this 2 Deep production. Love the drums in this one, really tough, and I'm a sucker for piano loops. There's a lot more heat on this KhemLab project, trust. You've been warned.

[RTD Interview]: Hollywood FLOSS

I remember the random Saturday afternoon where I first heard, and posted, Hollywood FLOSS' music. Two years ago, he sent over a track and I threw it up on BGDB. I was impressed, and apparently mad heads started taking notice, because over the next few years, he's been featured everywhere, from 2DBz to XXL. I won't say I told you so, but I'm glad that FLOSS has gotten the looks he's received, and has consistently churned out product to the Internets, for free and for a fee. While you've no doubt seen his name pop up on this blog over the last few years, it makes sense for him and I to sit down and really break down who the fuck his is, on the eve of his latest release, One Fan At A Time, which drops tomorrow, September 22nd. We break down how he got his unique moniker, how hardcore the ladies stalk him, and how he approaches this game.

#ThisIsAnger - Out Now!

No Comments »

Just wanted to let all you thugsteppers know that Nappy & Definate's "This Is Anger" EP is available today in all good digital download spots through my RTDLTD imprint. It's been a long time coming - I remember when Nappy laid these vocals down on Definate's nasty riddim, and was in awe at how anthemic this truly is to our movement. Building from that to a full remix project, and securing versions from guys like Spooky, Teeza, Tim Reaper and The Two. Fifteens, as well as introducing heads to the likes of Sheer Dropz and Linton Brown? I feel like this has different flavors for the lovers of this sound - you've got more bouncy, club-ready versions to the darker, more sinister vibes, along with a full-on Jungle rinser and that 215 quirk. I personally tried to build this like the CD maxi singles I would buy back in the day, with a number of variations on a central theme. It's a true testament to what we've been building five years ago - for free. Not sure how often you'll get releases like this from this conglomerate, but there's been a grip of mixes, remixes and refixes given away... support our endeavors and get some BIG tunes to boot!

On today, his 25th birthday, Rickie Jacobs unearths his debut album, Die Brilliant. I won't sit here in my cavern, speaking on how I had this cat on my radar before most... including his handlers... but you know, I've been telling you about this Bmore beast for years now. I'm actually surprised it took this long for nephew to drop his debut album, but I like how his story has progressed. "They say every day a star is born. Twenty five years ago on this day, September 18th, a star was born. He's now known as Baltimore's finest, Rickie Jacobs. Today, on his birthday, he blesses the game with his debut album, Die Brilliant. Executive produced by Street Scott, this project holds 14 records of pure brilliance. It's Rickie Jacobs' gift to you. Your gift in return would be pressing play and allowing the talent within Rickie Jacobs' heart, body and soul to blast through your speakers at obnoxious volumes. This is merely the beginning. It's a MoonLite Club thing, and soon, you will know what this movement is all about. Die Brilliant is more than a project. It's a message. It's a lifestyle. And we don't have far to go. Let's toast to Sweet Revenge. Live epic, Die Brilliant!" And just so you know, this is the "Standard Edition" - the full edition drops on Tuesday, on iTunes, and will feature three additional cuts.

L.A. - The L.A. Riots: Mental Fatality

Read more » | No Comments »

"This Is L.A., and this is my heart speaking while my mind beats the shit out of it"; yes, one of my latest favorite emcees took it THERE. In the intro. Throughout The L.A. Riots: Mental Fatality, L.A. doesn't revisit the aftermath of the Rodney King trial. No, she documents the world as she sees it, both internal strife and external hype. Produced by the one like Hippie Sabotage, their wavelengths flow perfectly. They both balance the quirk and the muck with the funk and the fury, and somehow they meet in the middle with aptly ferocious rhymes atop equally daft beats. I think another site was supposed to be dropping this, but homegirl wanted to drop this to you early, so she decided to put it out on her own. Thank her.
