DJ Muggs will be dropping his Bass In Your Face LP on Ultra. Random.
Not sure what prompted Hodgy dropping an EP on the Internets, but I fucks with it. To the point where I'm almost like, let's get a Hodgy solo jawn over non-OF niggas. Just sayin'. Nine tracks of excellence. Some quirk on here ("Samurai") mixed with some knock ("Bullshittin'"). Shouts to PotW. EDIT I had no idea that Thelonious Martin had credits on this ("Ave.", "If Heaven Is A Ghetto"). Respect to him!

See, this is the kind of shit I love when it comes to Hip-Hop. Niggas taking their influences and truly using them to create new pieces of art. Each member of St. Joe Louis took inspiration from the late David Ruffin, using his "chaotic life of excess" and re-imagining it for their own lives. I'd love to see a video where each member's head is transposed on David's body. Maybe I'm thinking too far ahead, lol. Fucks with SJL, doe. Shouts to The Cloud Club.

DOWNLOAD Borgore - Flex EP
After a hype first leak from Always Inspire(d), the boy Dom O slows things down, all hi-hats and drunken trumpet. Some straight young nigga who don't give a fuck sippin on his drank kind of flex. Kind of crazy. Straight spittin', but laxadasical. Dude only 20? Shit's dope. Can't wait for that EP. Maybe I'll actually speak to him this year, too.
DOWNLOAD Dom O Briggs "Out Chea"
Some glorious magnificent on the beat right here. Sounds like what happens when your soul leaves your body, and Tef Poe is like the white boy, seeing niggas who dead, trying to coax them to go to heaven. Or maybe it's a metaphor for money. Whatever works. Urban Legendz is a production crew, and I know they have an album, I believe it's called First Contact. I'm kind of off. But this is all the way on. Jam it. Or die lying (to yourself).

And if you haven't grabbed it, pick up Avenue B.
Black Collar Biz got a show!? He takes you into the Garden Variety (with words from the don Kasso), as well as through many of his other travels. Loving this!
You might even hear me on some of those "hey, ho!" chants. Shouts to Rich. Shouts to Side-B.

This shit gets 5 points for the New Jack loop.

I don't know about Mel or Sinatra, but I know the boy Liv knows what he's talking about. He's true to this.
DOWNLOAD Intalek "Plenty" (prod. by Ritchcraft)
Some cats from Trenton. I'll let you judge how "awesome" this is.
DOWNLOAD Rahiem Supreme ft. Fennan "Tonight"
I dropped the MP3 for this track the other day, and #PassportDreams drops tomorrow, but the video for this Jake-produced track is available now.
I despise spelling "boys" "boiz", but I can't deny my town going in over this beat.
