The Bronx Is Back

It never went anywhere, of course, but Joe Familiar always seems to forget about the place where this shit started. Sadat X is finally back after his “vacation”, so we’ll be hearing so new burners from him in a minute, while Money Boss mastermind and Soundview resident Minnesota is cooking up some serious material on the boards and the vocals.1 He’s also been working with another rhyming beatsmith from Claremont Village in the South BX by the name of $amhill, who has an understated style that gets over.

Minnesota – “The Diamond District”

Minnesota – “Psalms 23”

$amhill – “Extreme Wordplay”

$amhill – “Like It Is”

Bonus: Minnesota – “Code Noir Freestyle”

Damn,Minny has really stepped his emcee game up. First a new heater from the P Brothers and Boss Money and now some new Minnesota joints; 2008 is looking good for the BX. Is it me or does this cat Samhill sound like he is channeling AG on the “Like It Is” joint?

good stuff.

i’m diggin $amhill. i’d agree, he does have a touch of AG to his style. but only cause you mention it. i wouldn’t say he’s bitin.

the sound and vibe of both the vocals and raps on these tracks is ‘cool’, something which i find real important to dig a track.

Some new heat from K-Def, Minnesota… Sounds like my mixtapes from ’96 might get a rest for a minute! Peace.

love ya’ll for hitting the nail on the head every time I come here, seriously who does posts dedicated to Minnesota in 2008? NOBODY! I’m interested in doing an introspective on Rashad Smith and the work he did with Busta in the mid to late 90’s…Can ya’ll shed any light on him not found in discogs and such?

Props to Eons, your blog is science. Never apologize for informing us on the BX Robbie, it’s definitely need to know no matter how insignificant to “Joe Familiar”
