Clever One – 1-2, 1-2
Clever One smashes the ‘Mountain’ break to pieces for this track from his next project, The Dirty Dozen. Produced by DJ Rocksteady.
Your Old Droog feat. Prodigy – Hoodie Weather
Marco Polo produced this new cut from that Coney Island dude and Snowboard P.
Spotted at Ego Trip.
Video: Timeless Truth – Out of the Loop
Catch the crew at Webster Hall on 3 September. Taken from the Dominican Diner EP.
Video: Psycho Les feat. Royal Flush, Tragedy Khadafi and Illa Ghee – Thunder Bells Teaser
This is the definition of Conservative Rap Coalition-approved rap. All four of these gentlemen do themselves proud with their vocal performances here.
Video: Spesh feat. Kool G Rap – The Meeting
G Rap just directed the video to this feature he did a few months ago. Apart from the Conservative Rap Coalition violation that is Spesh‘s bedazzled t-shirt, this is good stuff.
Clever-1 feat. Him Lo – Shattah Proof English
That Old Gold proves why it’s the reigning champion of rap beers once again. Produced by Gos’illa with cuts by Jay Ski.
Him-Lo feat. Big Nawz – Valore Bathrobes
If you caught my footage of the Kool G Rap and DJ Polo show in Philly last year, you would have noticed that huge dude standing on stage next to G, chomping on a cigar. Turns out he’s a fellow by the name of Big Nawz, who is not only KGR’s road manager but also been known to drop a rhyme from time to time, as he’s done for this guest spot with Da Inappropriate.
Your Old Droog feat. Rast RFC – No Message
This is the best thing I’ve heard from both Droog and Rast yet. Better yet, it’s produced by the mighty P Brothers, who we haven’t heard any new music from in some time. There’s a show featuring Timeless Truth, Rast RFC and Your Old Droog at Webster Hall on 3 September if you’re in need of some CRC-approved rap.
Clever One – Invisible Hangover
With their loyalty to Ballentine 40 Oz and Polo rugbys, Da Buze Brovaz are certified CRC representatives. Here’s a new Clever One solo for all you fans of man-style drinking and the after-effects of an evening on that hard liquor.
“Tag Team Taktikz” video:
Video: $amhill – Alias
Salutes to CRC VP richdirection for shooting this slick visual treatment of $amhill‘s superb Counterstrike 2 contribution. Bronx keeps creating it!
Video: Ka & Preservation – Still Heir
First video from the 1200 BC EP is business as usual from the rapping fireman – b&w visuals and low-key rap hands.
Your Old Droog – Free Turkey
Seen in the Soundcloud comments:
“Don’t you guys think this droog is somewhat using the same sample type of Nas’ One Love?”
Video: RAST – Bad Dope [DJ Treats Version]
An old Cypress Hill classic gets a welcome update from ya boy RAST RFC and a DJ Treats fan-vid.
CRC-Approved Rap: July 2014 Edition
Here’s that monthly round-up of six tracks that slipped through the cracks of getting posted this month but still delivered that non-progressive rap feel that we appreciate around these parts. Don’t miss out on the new CRC crew necks and tees either…
AZ – Red Magic
“Been a beast since the Octopus breakbeats.” AZ continues to maintain his CRC-approved status – he’s been rapping exactly the same way for twenty years, just the way we like it. He really needs to bless this UK 80’s R&B banger one of these days though…
Busta Rhymes feat. Eminem – Calm Down
Who’d thunk it? Scoop DeVille flips the intro horns from “Jump Around” for Bussa Bus and Slim Shady to get unleash speech over. File under: Surprisingly enjoyable.
Illa Ghee feat. Sean Price – Speak To ‘Em
Another cut from Illa Ghee‘s Social Graffiti LP, which drops 8 July. Look out for my interview with Ghee next week.
