Soul Khan "Lord Knows Freestyle"

No Comments »

Cotdamn. Quick story: #McDuck hit me and said that he was working with Soul Khan in the studio and was like "new shit tomorrow". I was like #ProveIt, and he of course didn't, but he and Khan said "you'll know why next week". Sho 'nuff, this hit the inbox yesterday, and they merked a Just Blaze instrumental - hell, this dude fucking annihilated the "Lord Knows" jawn from Take Care. Fuck Drake. I wish Khan did this more often. Just beasting for beasting sake.

Tone Liv - Jersey's Junk Yard Dog

No Comments »

Been waiting for this one all Summer, it seems. Randomly and unexpectedly, Tone Liv drops his Jersey's Junk Yard Dog, further establishing himself as Jersey's Rap Mayor. You think I'm joking? Not only does the production ring true to his keen ear for heatrocks, he features a cornucopia of Jersey's Underground, with cats like Daniel Joseph, Sol Zalez, Mr. Fickle, Rhymageddon, Venomous2000, Phace, Blackout, B. Stilt and more. Jersey's all I know, indeed. This is straight pitbull off the chain Rap, niggas.

DJ Premier - Heavy D Tribute Mix

1 Comment »

Looks like I haven't had to post a DJ Premier tribute mix since the Guru 1 Year Anniversary throwdown on Hot 97 this past April. I wasn't even thinking about him doing a tribute mix to Heavy D, and this one just popped up via DJ Premier Blog (full tracklist is over on Mixcloud). About 44 minutes of that funk. The rockthedub-presented DJ Cable tribute to Heavy D should be dropping this week (tomorrow?) as well, so keep an eye peeled for that one.

The good homey PreZZure celebrates his 25th birthday with this four-track EP, Darkside Of The Good Guy. If you peeped The Woodside Boys, you know that he has the demons and isn't afraid of confronting those alternate sides of his mental/personality. Four tracks isn't enough, but it'll do. Nice lil' birthday gift for us, the fans, with the promise of an LP on the way. Grab the EP, and read his words on turning 25.

[update] Help Kickstart 1 More Hit

Read more » | No Comments »

It's been four years since 1 More Hit was premiered at SXSW, and we're finally on the cusp of this thing being completed and released. Well, almost. A measly $289 is still needed to help Kickstart this project. Please spread the word - J Swift is the shit, and his story of abuse and recovery will be inspiring. I posted about this last month, and we're nearing the end of this one. Hit the jump for details, hit the official 1 More Hit site for more details, and please contribute to the cause. The $17,000 will be lost if the goal is not met by 11:14AM tomorrow, November 14th.

EDIT Looks like the goal was met! Donations are still being accepted, though. I'm psyched!

And a few hours after I drop "Heaven", we present The Light Show EP, featuring Daniel Joseph, JahSyah and JS Krillz, three cats from Jersey who met up at Krillz' Light House studio while working on solo projects to knock out this six-track EP, alongside Steeve Sam for a few jawns. If you don't like a little experimentation with your true school Hip-Hop, I don't know what to tell you - maybe next time? This is the kind of Jersey-centric shit that makes me know for a fact that my state has some of the best kept secrets. And it's my duty to shine that light on 'em. Here you go. And to think, I only just heard about this shit last Friday.

Anyways, He Who Shines Truly is Daniel Joseph, JS Krillz & JahSyah, and they have a six-tracker on the way. Dope theme in the track, and Krillz cooked up a sick beat to give their words legs, arms, a head and drive. It's real. Espee saying their EP, The Light Show, is dropping tonight? We'll see, yeah?

Sizemen vs. John Graham "Veterans Of Foreign Wars"

No Comments »

Figured this track was appropriate for today. This is the latest from WordIsBond.com's "Versus" Series: I first heard the sizemen beat, courtesy of our editor ~peacelove, that found the french producer and posted his 2 beat tapes a while back. This beat is off his EP,"Sizemen in Africa", we normally ask for original beats off producers, for the versus, but this track was too crazy to pass on, so decided to keep it aside, until I could find someone dope enough to kill the beat....enter John Graham...a brother that got in touch via twitter, I listened to his work and posted a track by the name "Never Second Guess" so so fresh...when you post music day in and day out, it's difficult to find new artists that genuinely surprise you, and Jhon was just that, a super talented MC with witty lyrics and dope flows...I reached out, and asked him if he'd be up to spitting to this crazy joint by Sizemen...he listened to it, and although was a bit different to what he is used to spit to, he agreed as it was challenging.

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.

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.

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.
