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.

Him-Lo feat. Big Nawz – Valore Bathrobes

him-lo-velore

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

kia-sportage-commercial

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.

lacoste_1979-8

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

UBB-513

“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

IllaGhee

Another cut from Illa Ghee‘s Social Graffiti LP, which drops 8 July. Look out for my interview with Ghee next week.
