As KRS-One once said: “We’re not done…we’re not done”. After Paypal tried to hate on the Conservative Rap Coalition movement by freezing our account on the grounds that we’re not a “registered charity”, I had to flip the script on the whole operation. Never fear valued members, everything is back on track and we are well on the way to hitting our target in terms of new recruits. If you’ve been a long time reader of the site, it’s time to pony up before I start posting pictures of Kanye and Kim shopping for baby leather kilts. (more…)
New album cut from Hannibal Stax and Marco Polo‘s Seize The Day album, which dropped today and is an excellent example on Non-Progressive Rap done right. File under the ever-expanding Brooklyn Anthem category.
Ever since I returned to Mom’s Basement seven months ago, I’ve been concentrating on delivering a new interview every week and going all out to provide a voice to the rappers, DJ’s and producers that the rest of the world has forgotten about, plus talk a little shit along the way. The time has come, however, for me to leave the basement for a minute and return to the streets of New York IRL (In Real Life) to hunt down some leads and shoot some video.
That means that it’s time for all of you Conservative Rap Coalition members reach deep into your Carhartt pockets and contribute to the cause. I’m been able to get my plane ticket money together after picking-up an extra paper route, but that’s not going to cover my Metro Card’s money, hot dogs, Swedish Fish or 40 Oz’s of Ballentine beer. Your hard-earned dollars will be put towards funding one or more of the following projects: (more…)
Much has happened since our last meeting. Those of you who couldn’t afford the original Platinum membership packs have requested other options to show your support, and the landscape has shifted somewhat. Hipster Rap ate itself in a blur of day-glo, but new enemies have emerged in it’s wake. Now is not the time to rest on our laurels and pat ourselves on the back for a job well done, for the war rages on. Here are some of the major issues facing the CRC in 2013: (more…)
This is the world premier of the debut solo release from The Almighty $amhill, who delivers The Preface for you to chew on while he completes work on his first album. With beats from Preservation (Mos Def), RTNC (Timeless Truth), Superstar Dave Dar (Luv NY) as well as some self-produced tracks, the EP offers $am’s brutally honest views on broads, dames and lames. This is that unkut, raw New York rap that lives and breathes the mean streets of The Bronx.
If you’re in NY on Jan 20 you need to go to this show, which is basically the same line-up that a Conservative Rap Coalition concert would be. Tickets are under $20 if you cop them from here.
Celebrate and respeckanize the legacy of where Polo Ralph Lauren has taken their style from. Don’t be fooled into thinking that this brand hasn’t used the urban market’s influence to remain relevant (and rich).
I was going to review this but since it’s available to listen to before you buy, I’ll let the music speak for itself. Suffice to say, this is Conservative Rap Coalition approved! Now available on iTunes and hopefully on CD/LP in the near future
Rock-It Science is the debut album from Queens, NY duo Timeless Truth (SuperBad Solace and OPrime39). The album is entirely produced by Rthentic RTNC and features guest appearances from Sean Price, Roc Marciano, and Action Bronson, as well as cameos by Meyhem Lauren and Large Professor. The Rock-It Science LP was mixed by Superstar Dave Dar and mastered by Ricardo Gutierrez at Stadium Red in New York City.
There goes another in year in rap. As Weirdo Rap and EDM Rap takes hold of the youf, it’s getting a little more difficult to pick-out 40 great examples of non-progressive rap that Mitt Romney would approve of. Neo-Con Hip-Hop to some. East-Coast Elitist music to others. We are the Conservative Rap Coalition, and we are legion. Sit back, grab a beer (or something stronger), and let this tape transport you back to a time when rap didn’t suck as much, and when drums mattered, loops were important and rapping about how awesome you were was still cutting-edge.
