RIP Heavy D

Read more » | 1 Comment »

I'm fucked up off of this news, and was really uncertain about this news, but with TMZ, Rolling Stone and ABC News confirming it, I'm sad to say that Heavy D passed away at 44 years young. When he really started taking off, I was about 9 or 10 years old, and spent mad time watching Yo!, Rap City, Video Music Box and all of the other spots that showed Hip-Hop videos (as I was too fucking young to cop CDs tapes on my own), learning dance moves and lyrics. I knew that Waterbed Heav was Pete Rock's cousin, and could dance his ass off - as well as had a knack for getting females. As I grew, so did his career, as he not only had tracks move into the Pop side of the charts, but also started acting, with roles on Roc, Different World and even in plays piling up - even writing the themes for In Living Color and MADtv! And he did it without cursing, or needing to put our people down. Hell, he recently touched down at this year's BET Hip-Hop Awards, closing the show! No word on what caused his death, but 44 years old is too fucking young! Rest in Peace, Heavy D. I tried not to curse. Hit the jump for some of my favorite Heavy D jams.

E Dot Dizzy - 3:02 AM

1 Comment »

Here's the newest/latest from the homey E Dot Dizzy, and is a wild ride at 3:02AM, when the club's letting out. Think about all the emotions you have bottled up at that time of night, be it the scheming on them females, or just clowning on whatever antoxicants you're utilizing. Or just letting the spirit move you and bouncing to some fat beats. E Dot has encapsulated all of that into this tape here. Part fun, part funny, part downright emotional, this is the tape for you midnight riders. He spit on, produced and engineered this entire project, like a good mixologist should. It officially drops on 11/11/11, but you know how we do. Dumb early.

Ess Vee x Tarik "Telephone"

No Comments »

This one is just smooth. Ess Vee says he and Tarik linked up and flipped a number of tracks, dropping them after releasing their solo jawns. NJ/NY connection here, with cats playing phone tag with the 16s. Interesting theme for their bars, with them coasting over those drums. Two up and comers that you niggas might want to make sure you're keeping an eye on.

I'm not sure who J.Y. is, but this is the fucking anthem right now. He be up in Trenton? Who knows, but if a video for this is sorted out, Imma need to be in this. Actually - who the fuck am I kidding? Only real niggas know how I do in Jersey, and J.Y. ain't fucking with them. This shit is knockin', regardless. Word is DJ Booth is dropping J.Y.'s The Slave Shift: Falling Up, so be on the look out for that. Or just go to Jersey, and find him.

The Emilio Sparks Experience, Episode 25

No Comments »

I lost both of my grandparents during high school - my grandmother my freshman year, and Pop-Pop before I graduated, so to hear anyone who still has their grandparents in their life hits me a certain way. Plus, my Pop-Pop was huge into boxing, so with Joe Frazier's passing, he's in my thoughts a little more today. In any case, Emilio Sparks invited his paternal grandparents in on this edition of the Emilio Sparks podcast. Enjoy that.

Tanya Morgan "Whatever That's Mine"

1 Comment »

If you were a smart nigga, you listened to that ARMY Edition of Lessondary Radio, and knew that Tanya Morgan really hasn't been on a hiatus, but you just ain't gotten that new-new from them. Well, here you go. Taken from their forthcoming You And What Army EP (which drops on the 22nd of November), this is my new mantra. I've got goals in my life that I'm trying to attain so I'm not giving away so much of my space to these pricks who truly give a fuck about me if it doesn't involve their bottom line. Being a grown man, I have shit I need to take care of, but seizing the day is what needs to happen. Loving this Von-produced beat, and like I said, that mantra is the truth. Get whatever's yours. All day. You And What Army also features beats from Exile, Astronote, AEON and Brizzo, and should be that shit that I've been needing in my normal Hip-Hop diet.

File this under "nigga, you better read that fucking contract before you sign it and get your artistic dreams broken by some labelhead who knows fuck all about what the fuck you're trying to do". Good to hear cats who have some knowledge imparting that shit. Oddly, I still see young niggas think that they are gonna get signed and laced like it's 1999 out this bitch. Different time, gotta reevaluate what the fuck you're doing. Make your own bread, and use those labels as distro. But be fucking SMART, people. Be smart. Be on the lookout for Laelo's Life In High Definition.

Whoa. Been a minute since I've heard some new Intalek, and I wasn't fucking prepared for this one! Bottom-heavy, with that flavorful "fuck you" in his lines, Intalek is prepping for the release of Synesthesia with Kid Icarus, which is due to drop in 2012. Loved this one since it first dropped, and it just got better and better. I laugh at anyone who laughs at EDM vibes within their Hip-Hop. Fucking hockeypucks!

Nice to get some new material from the boy Lyriciss in the inbox. He's one of those MCs who I really mess with, and I hope he gets some great looks in the near future. There's just so much BS going on, real niggas who know how to have fun as well as keep it real are like aliens. Word is he has another EP, Money, set to drop early 2012, so fucks with this, and be on the lookout for that.

Why yes, I'm definitely the kind of nigga who drops tracks about plotting in the early morning at 5PM. Terrible 2sum is the homey Phace and Gentum, and is straight up drive-by music. Well, not the shit you blast when you're actually blastin' niggas, but the shit you're plotting to, cleaning hammers and loading clips. Niggas can still drive other niggas to merk each other in 2011, don't get it twisted. Don't slip up and write them wolf tickets, troop - it could be you!

Style Wars: The Outtakes

No Comments »



The producers of Style Wars are trying to raise $28,000 to obtain the over 30 hours of outtakes that lie in storage, outtakes that they used to make the 69 minute documentary that's one of the cornerstones of Hip-Hop history. "There are more scenes from the B boy battle at United Skates of America between the Rock Steady Crew and the Dynamic Rockers, and more interviews with Skeme and his mom, Dez, Kase 2, Shy, Seen, Dondi and all the other kings and characters that people have grown to love. But this history is threatened. The original footage is damaged and fading. Fortunately, it will be possible to repair using digital technology. It will cost $28,000 to save and restore the outtakes. Saving the best outtakes is an important component of our overall project to restore the entire negative of the film and make an HD master which will preserve the record of the first painted trains in their original vivid colors." These are needed for future as extras for future Style Wars releases - support the cause today, via Kickstarter.

Milly Esquire "Making Me Mad"

Milly got them mad nigga blues on this one. This the kind of flex you get when that chick you're fly with gets a bit too cute, talking to you about any and everything. Or the female who is really on that "oh, you _____", and they trying to smash you, your boy and the nigga who cuts your hair. I'm glad I'm secure at the homestead, I couldn't even play those kinds of games when I was younger - too many fucking headaches. Bitches ain't shit is whatever, that's why you don't give them your phone number, nigga. Oh, this is another Milly Mondays jawn, with Esquire flipping Rihanna's "Rehab" - apparently. I know fuck all about these pop tracks these days. Milly was really expressing that life, though! Go drink you a YooHoo and stop fucking with them ho's, nigga.

We're days away from the October 40th DOOMstravaganza, and Ambush hit me with this cut from L&S; Latrese & Summers will be dropping their DOOM For Dummies mixtape on Wednesday, featuring their own unique takes on DOOM classics. They have those sultry vocals that you fucking NEED to hear over those fly instrumentals, and this one is no exception. But it's not just love and loss, they bring their personalities into their lyrics, so expect some knowledge and humor to boot. Blast this one LOUD - champion music.

Here's another cut from AWKWORD's World View album; if you missed the Refined Hype premiere of this, for shame. Without creating alters, AWK breaks down his ills to the doctor on this one, with GuessWho? alongside for the ride. I do this a lot, but usually inside my own mind, or in text via twitter... or this blog. We all have problems and stress, it's just in how you handle that shit. Real talk on this one, with beats from Malaysia. Malaysia! Hip-Hop is global, pricks!

Soulbrotha "Way of Love (Never out of Season)"

No Comments »

I said I was gonna drop the "Great Expectations" track a few weeks aback. Pardon my busy life. SB and BroadNMarket have cooked up some fly shit, and this "Way of Love" jawn is right up my alley. SB says he went through some trials and tribulations a few years back, and is creating music inspired by The XX, to help those in similar struggles to know that there's, essentially, a light at the end of the tunnel, a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and whatever other cliches help you cope. Realistically, you need to escape every now and again, and the themes SB flips help you pull from your own problems and hopefully find solutions through them. Over some bangin' beats, which is always nice. The Southpaw EP is on the way.

You ever notice how niggas will forever be like "yeah, they love that real Hip-Hop in Europe", but never listen to the shit they MAKE in Europe? The Associated Minds crew represent the United Kingdom, and bring that shit you would blast loud while holding your Jansport tight, although all you had in it was a composition notebook, some tokens and Dutch Masters. Oh and some Maxell tapes. This cut right here is three years old, feels like 1999 and will be released on the forthcoming Hidden Thoughts compilation from the Associated Minds crew.

Fresh one from AP, one of Trenton's finest. He feels like he has years in, and is willing to lay that all over this dusty beat. Love the way it builds, with the organ and all. Homey has a CD, Prayer, Push-Ups & Piffy 2.0 that will be available at his CD release party at Cafe International in Trenton on the 26th of November. Blood, sweat and years. Some people are Rock, some are Hip-Hop, but really we should strive to be Music, seen?

Two things I was late on: I had no idea Hodgy Beats was from Trenton, nor did I know that Left Brain smacked a female photographer. I do know that Hodgy's ROCK/SLAB mixtape is on the way, and this track is that kind of trippy dip that niggas who smoke swishas bounce to. Feels like smoking then taking a swim in a pool of excellence. Shouts to Rap Radar.

I think I saw something on PremRock & Willie Green's album being out on Isolated Wax, but I must have missed their first single. Shouts to Sophia for putting me onto this, the second single, featuring mans like C-Rayz Walz, Soul Khan and DJ Addikt. Something fly for those of you out there who appreciates that true shit. Willie Green has been making a name for himself with the beats, and while this is some of the first times I've heard Prem spit, I'm feeling this one. C-Rayz and Khan don't fuck around on their bars, making this one a pretty solid collaborative piece of excellence. Prem and Green are touring in Europe right now, so show some support and cop that album!

If you fucks with Tanya Morgan, there's two things you should know: they are now a duo, comprised of Donwill and Von Pea (peace to Ilyas), and they have a project on the way entitled You & What Army. That EP is set to drop on the 22nd of November, and to preview some of the jawns, TM have returned to their Lessondary Radio podcast with a special "Army Edition", which features an hour-long mix (of Von's) that showcases their collabos (with the likes of 9th Wonder, Skyzoo, King Mez and Che Grand), as well as some firey unreleased jawns. The brothers also wax poetic on what their hiatus has been filled with, as well as You & What Army. Them niggas still here. Enjoy it. And because I'm a nerd, I gotta say that finally meeting Don and Von this summer, after years of covering their shit, was a good experience, however brief it turned out to be.

rockthedub.com presents The Woodside Boys

No Comments »

One thing about me, I love seeing cats collaborate. Nothing gets me hyper than talented individuals combining their creative efforts and making something new, refreshing and exciting. I'm not sure how many months ago it was - I wanna say it was this past Spring; I was having a conversation with Lyle Horowitz, and he was talking about some of the tracks he's done with PreZZure, and I said something to the effect of "you guys should knock out an album and have rockthedub drop it on Halloween". That must have sounded good to them, because I started getting rumblings of them really churning out some ill shit - even dubbing themselves The Woodside Boys. I'm not sure what a Woodside Boy is, but I know these two cats locked horns and created a pure beast. PreZZ goes ham on this one - he really taps into the darker, more sinister side of his psyche, with tracks like "Ghost" (my personal favorite) and "Possessed" really blur the lines of crazy MC and crazy MC who might fucking kill you. You've already heard "I'm The Best", where they flipped what is arguably the best promo on WWE programming of the last few years into an anthem for slept-on MCs. 10 tracks of terror, from two cats who should be highly sought after. Trick or treat... Woodside or die.

Here's a nice Club banger into dubstep destroyer that Nappy posted on Generation Bass a few weeks back. The boy Wick-It is a fool for this one. I'll bop to this, rocking my "Thriller" t-shirt and taking lil' man out for trick-or-treating. Run ya candy, bitch!

Juju Gives Away Dubplates... And More

No Comments »

Juju posted a .zip of dubplates and mash-ups for free via twitter. It's mostly his non-DnB fodder (which was more of what I was hoping for), including released singles like "Punks", as well as bootlegs of Yellowman and Gregory Isaac tunes. Makes me wish there was more dub-wise dubstep out there. Also makes me wish he was rockin' more releases in general.

Disc Jockey Nappy - MANIC

Read more » | No Comments »

Sometimes, it's hard to believe how long things can take to come out. The mix you're about to partake in, I've rinsed on my own for months. Artwork's been done, all of that. Oddly enough, there are times where delays work in your advantage, and opportunities to present works at a more appropriate time abound. Right now, the clock has just struck Halloween. The night where it's OK to let your freak flag fly, give in to your fears and essentially bug the fuck out. As long as you don't hurt nobody. For this latest mix from DJ Nappy, it morphs from being just a mixture of 40+ tracks (in 62 minutes, no less), but it becomes an audiobook. MANIC tells the story of one's descent into dementia, fueled by the sounds of dubstep, Hip-Hop and their bastard fuckchild, THUGSTEP. Original production from the likes of Silkie, MRK1, Borgore, Downlink, NumberNin6 and The Two. Fifteens (among others), with remix and refix pressure from 16bit, Santi Junior, Hipnotikk, Rastah.Mouse, North Base and plenty more. Turn this one up (loud) and wake the neighbors. Original artwork by Kelsi (click here for the full monty), with a nice addition by Squincy Jones.

This is sick as fuck. I knew Tyler was a producer, but I'm still fucking amazed at how he plays the keys. I grew up with a lot of kids who'd play instruments, and loved sitting in on their jam sessions. This took me back to junior year in high school. Hit the jump to see Tyler perform "Seven" with BADBADNOTGOOD.
