Dirty Dike hails from Cambridge, England. If you rap, he most likely raps better than you. The self-proclaimed alcoholic tosser recently unleashed Sucking On Prawns In The Moonlight via UK imprint High Focus Records, keeping pace with his previous lunacy step for step while ushering in a sense of maturity that comes with a few years in the business.
To read my words is to understand that I’m a fan of rappers who simply stomp the hell out of a beat. Dike’s pedigree is deceiving, as you’d swear (minus the at times tricky accent) he’s from Brooklyn or Queens. For me, his knack for beat selection and wordplay make his records no-brainers. Take a listen. Click some links. Buy some music. You’re welcome.
Been a minute since I’ve heard a verse from Shaz Illyork. Here’s a new one from the Queens MC featuring Rast, who continues to get stronger with every couplet. Enjoy this one in Timbs and a parka with the fur hood.
Rast is firing head shots. His loosie game started really warming up near the end of last year, and it appears there’s no slowing down in 2016. This one was going to feature the legendary Sean P, but it never had a chance to happen. Click play. You’re not ready.
February is here…lots to talk about so let me put this in the air. Meek Mill has zero chill. Say he took the L. He’s this, he’s that. But the kid is resilient as hell. Drake dropped some weak stuff on beats radio a few nights ago and Meek immediately fired back with “War Pain”, one of the toughest songs in his entire catalog. It’s featured on part 2 of his 4/4 a series which he’s slowly revealing as we approach the release of Dreamchasers 4. Face the facts, Drake raps like he’s on vacation and just woke up from a nap on the beach. Meek sounds hungry…every single time. Enjoy.
Check out “Walk With Me”, a creepy joint from NYC spitter 212Lurky. It’s a cut from his Cold Summer EP. Lurk’s take on growing up in subsidized Lower East Side housing is something you can feel. This one’s a teaser…stay tuned, and enjoy.
