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.
Download: Scram Jones – Dead Giveaway EP
Scram Jones continues the tradition of dope producers who don’t really need to be rapping, but the beats on this go hard enough to disregard any complaints.
Download: Action Bronson and Party Supplies – Blue Chips 2
New Action Bronson tape with Party Supplies is available here for free ninety nine. Unclear at this stage why Action is listed as a guest on his on project on track 16. Also, sad face that the Cam’ron feature didn’t happen.
Debonair P – Remixes 2 and Instrumentals LP Release
Melbourne’s own Debonair P, who’s recently dropped some quality music with Omniscence, Is dropping new remix and instrumental vinyl, which you can cop here. All the filtered bassline, crisp snare goodness you could need for your steering pleasure…

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: Endemic feat. Tragedy Khadafi, Ruste Juxx and Afu Ra – High Society
UK producer Endemic recruits Trag, Ruste and Afu for this solid entry into the Hoody Rap Ain’t Dead genre. Taken from the Terminal Illness 2 LP, due late November.
Tragedy Khadafi – Drop A Gem On Em Freestyle
Another drop from J-Ronin‘s Freestyle Files Vol. 2, as the Foul Mahdi lets off over some classic Havoc heat.
Minnesota – Modus Operandi
Some 2009 Bronx shit just for the fuck of it. “If ya doin’ rap music, ya doin’ Bronx music”.
Boogie Down Productions – Duck Down [Alternative Version]
More BDP action with this vinyl rip from Rob Pursey of Southern Hospitality. Apparently the UK pressing of the “Duck Down” 12″ features an alternative version of the Pal Joey produced track, despite being labeled as the “LP Version”. Sporting a looser deliver from KRS, an extra bassline and an extra verse going at X-Clan, which would later end-up as part of “Build and Destroy”, from the same LP. Was there some kind of fuck up and an early demo version of “Duck Down” was pressed up for the British audience, or did the Jive UK office just prefer this version? Regardless, it’s more greatness from the third best BDP album, and therefore essential listening.
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.
