Stream: Big Rec – Doomsday Album [Produced by Diamond D]
Check the debut LP from new Diamond D discovery Big Rec from Oklahoma, produced entirely by the “Best Producer On The Mic” himself. Stand-out for me was the “NO 2 NC” which flips the same loop that Godfather Don used on “Seeds of Hate.” Cop it over at iTunes.
Domingo feat. M.O.P and GP100 – We Put It Down
No idea who GP100 is but there’s never a bad time for a new Mash Out Posse appearance. Taken from Domingo‘s forthcoming Same Game, Different Rules LP.
$amhill – Hustler’s Holiday
Another loosie from Bronx bomber $amhill, Jean Duvall on the beat.
AWAR feat. Roc Marciano – Broad Daylight
Tales of ill-gotten gains over a Vanderslice and Green Steez soundtrack.
$amhill – Project Misery
At long last, some new $amhill material for you Bronx rap aficionados, produced by Jean Duvall. This just might be the strongest performance I’ve heard from $amhill yet…
Video: Ruc Da Jackel feat. Blaq Poet – Catch Your Drift
New clip from former Killa Kid Ruc Da Jackel as he recruits QB legend Blaq Poet to bless the booth.
Rob Kelly feat. Da Villins – Jimmy Jump
Ireland’s own Conservative Rap Coalition representative Rob Kelly drops a cut from the Black Irish Rogue, due 15 July. Scooby on the beat.
Apollo Brown feat. Roc Marciano – Lonely & Cold
This is one of two Marciano features on Apollo Brown‘s latest instrumental project, Thirty Eight, and you can cop it free of charge at his Bandcamp page.
Meyhem Lauren and Buckwild – Q.U. Cartilage
More Silk Pyramids action. Seems like a missed opportunity that this project wasn’t called Buck Lauren though.
Video: Diamond D feat. Pharoahe Monch – Rap Life
First single from Diamond D‘s The Diam Piece LP finds Monch kicking that good old rappity rap shit.
A Double Dose of Black Rob
BR has popped up with two new appearances this week. The first one is taken from his next album, Genuine Article, and sounds like it’s a left over from his stint at Duck Down based on the fact it contains Sean Price and Tek features and particularly sparse Easy Moe Bee beat.
Stream: Willie The Kid and Bronze Nazareth – The Living Daylights
Willie The Kid and Bronze Nazareth‘s LP is now available for sale on iTunes, but you cab try before you buy with the streaming link below. “Ain’t Nothin’” with Boldy James is my pick of the litter so far.
Download: Him-Lo Da Inappropriate – Horsepower Mixtape
Turns out Philly can still churn-out some quality, CRC-approved rap, as this mixtape from Him-Lo demonstrates. The homie Dallas Penn holds it down on hosting duties, and there’s a song which uses “Nautilus,” which is always a good sign. Also, “On A String” just might be the best previously unused 80′s R&B flip in a long time.

LEX feat. Timeless Truth – Straight Queens Action
Unkut regular LEX connects with Timeless Truth for this new cut from his H.A.S.H?!: How About Some Hardcore?! album due next month.
Jigmastas – The Resurge
Kriminal and DJ Spinna are back at it with their first new music in five years. I’ve been a fan of the J.I.G.’s since day dot, so this is one rap reunion that means something to me.
Troy Ave feat. Styles P – Do It
Troy Ave and Styles P rock over a horn break originally used on Superlover Cee and Casanova Rudd‘s “Girls I Got ‘Em Locked”.
“Girls I Got ‘Em Locked” video:
Agallah feat. Roc Marciano – Blaze of Glory
Taken from the 8 Off / ALC Past & Present EP dropping 1 Jan.
The Doppelgangaz – Holla x2
New Doppz track from the Peace Kehd LP, due next Feb.
Video: Marco Polo feat. The Doppelgangaz – R U Gonna Eat That
The Groggy Pack and Bambi Rose are gafflin’ for left-overs on this cut from Marco Polo‘s PA 2: The Director’s Cut, which has a series of collectible vinyl editions available through Slice of Spice soon.
A$AP Mob feat. A$AP Nast and Method Man – Trillmatic
This shameless attempt to pander to the CRC crowd actually works on the strength of Meth’s superb contribution. That being said, an A$AP Mob song being posted on Unkut may just signal the coming of the apocolypse.
