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.
Marco Polo feat. Large Professor, Inspectah Deck, O.C, Tragedy Khadafi & DJ Revolution – Astonishing
One of the highlights of the forthcoming Marco Polo album PA2: The Director’s Cut, as Large, Rebel INS, O.C. and Trag all go in. DJ Revolution steals the show, however, with what can only be described as scratching so great it should be illegal.
Natural Elements – Competition Is NoNE
Natural Elements have returned to burn, albeit with the new names that they adapted in the mid 00′s. A-Butta is now Anthony Cruz, L-Swift is Swigga and Mr. Voodoo is Agu. Produced by Charlemagne, with scratches by Scram Jones. Interesting to note that they’ve flipped the world’s most annoying girl pop tune, aka Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” in a manner not unlike Brand Nubian turning Eddie Brickell‘s “Who Am I” into “Slow Down”. Thanks to Neil Nice and grandgood for the heads up.
Roc Marciano – The Specialist
Unreleased new Roc Marciano track produced by Pete Rock, as heard on DJ Premier‘s Live From Headqcourterz radio show.
Video: Sadat X – We In New York
The Great Dot X can’t stop, won’t stop. From the forthcoming New York: Never Left LP.
$amhill – My Fate [Remix]
The $amhill album has been delayed on some behind-the-scenes shit, so here’s something new from the Bronx Bomber to hold you over. Produced by RTNC.
Boldy James – Moochie
Martorialist makes some good points regarding why this track works. East Coast Elitist restrictions may have to be slightly relaxed if Alchemist keeps spreading the thun language out mid-west.
Video: J-Zone – Gadget Ho
First video from J-Zone‘s Peter Pan Syndrome album, out now on cassette and CD.
Download: Willie The Kid – Aquamarine Mixtape
I somehow forgot to post this week. It’s worth the price of admission (zilch) for “Glasses Of Water” alone, which incorporates an amusing Fresh Prince of Bel Air snippet. For extra good times, listen to this while wearing your captains uniform, or at least boat shoes.
