The Combat Jack Show: Mike Holman

No Comments »

Via TheCombatJackShow: "On the latest episode of The Combat Jack Show, we start off with Parfit from Ambrosia4Heads, and we get a serious history lesson courtesy OG Michael Holman, best known as the creator of the short lived but incredibly influential early 80s hip-hop show Graffiti Rock. As a co-founder of the experimental band Gray with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Hollman waxes poetic about what made Basquiat such a force not only then, but to this day."

This was the final song during Black Collar Biz's mind-blowing performance at Art All Night 2013. Look at the excellence up there; he's got a DJ, full band (with violin), a tap dancer, back-up singers AND A GODDAMN DANCE GROUP! It was powerful. SAGE was in the house, Trenton is killing it, and I'm just glad I could see the homey kill it like this.

If you missed Black Collar Biz and the Blackout Kings on Saturday night at Art All Night Trenton, you fucked up. I was talking to Kasso yesterday morning about Collar's progression, and seeing him grow over the last few years, and seeing him on stage with a band, ripping, keeping it hip-hop and so much more? High Grade Artistry is more than just a sly couple of words, we live this. Rapping over Bonobo in spots they brought life to? You're far from ready for what he has coming...

RIP Trenton Atelier.

The Combat Jack Show: Foxy Brown Episode

Via TheCombatJackShow: "“Foxy did this. Foxy did that.” There’s been mad talk about the Ill Na Na since like forever, and while ya’ll keep staying with your face in her puss, I guarantee you ain’t ever hear Foxy talk in first person like this. From her pops bouncing when she was 4 years old, to dating Haitian Jack at 14, her and Jay Z moving from the bench to the studio to the top, getting sucker punched with the deafness, her relationship with Nicki Minaj, that bid in jail.. I put money on it that this is the realest shit she ever spoke.

She took all your shots and now she’s firing back. You think she can’t hear you? You’re about to hear her loud and clear b.

You gon’ learn today."

Hood Congress - Burning Bridges

No Comments »

I didn't even know the homegirl Mayday was working on hip-hop. I knew she'd done some production in a number of other genres, but making beats AND rapping? And it's dope. I mean, as much as cats talk about old school hip-hop, you listen to their shit and it doesn't even mesh with their influences. Mayday took it back to the essence. We're talking '87. Grab the Burning Bridges mix, download the album, and stream the entire project below.

St. Joe Louis "St. Joe Lotus Reloaded"

No Comments »

St. Joe Louis returns with 'St. Joe Lotus: Reloaded'. Emotionally darker than the last time we heard the NJ/Texas trio. Ever focused on the feelings minus the filler. It's a 6 song project that tries to grapple with the sacrifices we sometimes make to achieve success. Similar to its predecessor, this EP unites the group once again with some perfectly curated Flying Lotus production.

The title track 'Reloaded' addresses the groups renewed musical focus. As Michael Cardigan puts it "Never lonely/Success will be my best friend/Now I'm write back to the money like I'm texting." Not to be outdone Tommie Chase puts on a lyrical clinic on 'Getting There' while Elete Wright paints a tale of seduction on 'Night Blooming Jasmine.'
