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.

One day after our interview, DJBooth.net presents Hollywood FLOSS's One Fan At A Time, which is his free skreet album released on your Internets. Features include Naledge, Jackie Chain, Laws, YP and even one of them Day26 niggas (not the one leaking bitchassness, doe). FLOSS is forever going to take it there, so if you're looking for fun or focus, he's got it all. Beast from the likes of Chris Rockaway, Brandun Deshay and someone named Sweet Valley High (that name is so cold). FLAWSE put his whole foot in the stew this time. Take a sip, nigga.

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.

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!
And here's a final version of Santi Junior's "This Is Anger" refix, under his new guise for all things refixed, Thugsteppa:
