Many moons ago I remember being mesmerized by Elzhi thanks to a project called Elmatic, which served as both homage and a reinterpretation of what I consider the greatest rap record ever made. Here we are years later, on the cusp of the Slum Village vets next release Lead Poison, set for a March 25th release. Can’t wait for that. In the meantime, peep the visuals for “February”. Enjoy.
This brand new cut from Statik KXNG makes me want to lace up my boots and smoke Newports in the icy February wind, half cocked on whiskey and beers. “Let’s Go” is trademark Stat. Boom bap with mighty attitude and ferocious bars from Crooked and Terminology. Good Lord.
Koncept & J57 keep hitting us with banger after banger off The Fuel EP. Today we’re blessed with the visuals for “Crazy Is Beautiful” featuring the gorgeous voice of 12-year-old Navaeh out of Portland, OR. The force is strong on this one. Grab the EP here, and check out the clip below. All love for the Brown Bag around these parts.
Gary, Indiana’s Freddie Gibbs is getting ready to hit the road in support of his Shadow of a Doubt album. Here’ a clip for “Freddy Gordy” from that record. A bit of introspect on a early Thursday. Enjoy.
Pro Era general Joey Bad spazzes on this gem from Statik Selektah. You can hear him growing hungrier with every drop. He’s spitting venom here, including a shot or two at Troy Ave. A little beef for breakfast? Take that.
Today we have Bam Bam teaming up with Buffalo NY’s Westside Gun for the wrestling inspired “Dudley Boyz” off Gunn’s upcoming FLYGOD album. I don’t get tired of these WWE references…it makes me feel young again. What’s not to love when these two bless an Alchemist beat? Enjoy.
Here’s “These Feelings”, a new one from NYC’s Young Planet. This effortless melding of beats, jazz, and bars is perfect for those moments when you need to step back and recognize who and what means most to you. Be sure and check out all their work here. All love, all positive vibes. It’s a nice change of pace. Enjoy.
