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.
Video: Grand Daddy I.U. – Sasquatch Feet
A new sure shot from the I Dot U Dot. That hook is just too ill…
Cormega feat. Raekwon – Honorable
Large Pro named this song for Mega via Twitter. Like a 27″ zenith, I seen it.
Video: Timeless Truth – Wavelength
Large Pro catches a Bowne HS flashback with his backpack on one hunned as he laces this new track for Solace and Oprime39 from their next LP, Cold Wave. Mixed by Dave Dar.
J-Love feat. Sean Price and Lil Fame – NY Barbarians
J-Love recruits some Brooklyn brawlers for this cut from one of the five albums he’s planning to drop 19 November.
Willie The Kid feat. Boldy James – Ain’t Nothing
Willie The Kid proves that rest is for weak fux as he continues to drop quality music like it ain’t no thing. This is from his next project, produced entirely by Bronze Nazereth. Is it just me or is Boldy a little less effective without Alan The Chemist backing?
Nutso feat. Problem and Bad Lucc – Phuk It!
Nutso puts out a lot of effin’ music these days. Reef throws him a flip that you may recall from EPMD‘s “Chill”, while that Problem guy minus the “Z” not from Black Attack jumps into the fray.
Rob Kelly – Jack The Ripper 2 [The Ripper Returns]
Rob Kelly is a paid-up member of the CRC and a drunken Irish hooligan with an ear for good beats. Like all good organizations, being part of the Conservative Rap Coalition automatically grants you access to the finer things in life, one of which is getting your music posted on Unkut on the condition that it doesn’t suck and is deemed suitably non-progressive.
Raekwon – It’s My Thing
The Chef takes it back to the “Seven Minutes of Funk” / EPMD chamber. Spotted at Nah Right.
Sean Price, Billy Danze, Maffew Ragazino and DJ Babu – Land of the Crooks
It’s been a good week for Australian producer M-Phazes, who not only got a co-production credit on the new Eminem LP but also snagged BK brawlers Sean Price, Billy Danze and Maffew Ragazino on the same track, while DJ Babu seals the deal with a def-defying display of zigga-zigga wizardry.

Step Brothers – Ron Carter
Evidence and Alchemist drop a non-LP cut while they prepare to drop the Step Brothers LP. I fux with this instrumental heavy.
Video: Big Twins – That Paper
The latest installment of Twins’ current video series, “That Paper” sports a beat from Rheezo as your mans keeps that QB Rap torch burning.
