Free rap to make you wanna slap ya cousin.
Taken from the new Digital Camo EP, available on vinyl through Chopped Herring.
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.
Wonder Years fan Da Coroner drops a free EP while he completes his debut LP. Produced entirely by ATG.
Some new vinyl at a decent price for a change…
Snippets taken from the new EP from Fla Fla of Sparrow the Movement, responsible for indie classics such as “Rhyme Impotence”, “Physics” etc. The Timeless EP is available on limited vinyl (150x clear red, 150x clear green) via Six2Six records. All songs produced and mixed by Debonair P. Vinyl can be ordered below for $22 plus postage.
M.W.P. is a producer from Espergærde, Denmark, who just dropped this collection of Roc Marciano remixes over at Bandcamp. Not that “Snow” actually needed a remix, but it’s always interesting to hear different interpretations of great vocals.
Visuals for this Roc Marciano produced gem from last year’s Brugal & Presidentes EP, available here on CD and limited edition tape!
If you caught the J. Force interview, you’d have read about the release of this lost project from Kev-E-Kev and Ak-B, who were on DNA Records with Super Lover Cee and Cassanova Rudd, with beats from Paul C. and Marley Marl.
You can order this limited-edition release over at GoodFelons.
Update: Looks like this might not be coming out anytime soon based on comments below…
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.
Managed to fight back the Wu-Fatigue from the other week and give this new Raekwon a spin. Despite sounding a little distorted due to being mastered FAR TOO LOUD, this is pretty good. The Scram Jones tracks were the stand-outs for me, especially the “Trans-Europe Express” flip on “Came Up.” Hopefully a remastered version appears soon, but in the meantime here’s the EP with the title that English teachers hate.
Alan The Chemist has made a 12 minute EP of drum-free rap for a clothing label called 9Five, with appearances from Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, Oh No, Big Twins, Chuck Inglish and Blu.
Some new G Rap in anticipation of his next album. That ALC/Havoc snippet is worth the effort at least…
To celebrate the release of the superb Nineteen Ninety Now LP with Celph Titled, Buckwild is releasing a limited-edition vinyl EP (only 200 copies) on No Sleep Recordings, with remixes/unreleased cuts with Celph on the A side and some unreleased remixes on the flip. Here’s his lost remix of ‘Fast Life’ – not to be confused with the Salaam Remi or Vinyl Reanimator versions…
Buckwild: “I worked on this somewhat later then I should have. Even though I did the album version and it was the single, Salaam’s remix was chosen before I even turned this in. I was going to use it on the white label, but went with the Nas and AZ songs instead”.
Catch the debut promo EP from Brownsville resident Maffew, who you’ve previously heard here via his cuts with Masta Ace and DJ Clark Kent.
Maffew Ragazino - ‘Get It Together’
DWG009 – INTELLIGENT HOODLUM / TRAGEDY – ‘BLACK RAGE DEMOS’ (sticker sleeve / limited to 250 hand numbered copies)
Containing 3 previously unreleased Intelligent Hoodlum / Tragedy tracks (together with the 3 final album versions on the flipside) re-mastered for optimum audio quality. This release is endorsed by 25 To Life and will directly benefit Trag who is now working on new projects to revitalise his career.
Some good news for vinyl fiends with three new limited-edition releases from Freestyle Records, who also brought us Showbiz & AG‘s Broken Chains:
Showbiz Presents: The Big L / Silky Black Double Pack
Freestyle Records proudly announces our second collectors-only collaboration with the one and only Showbiz. This time around we wanted to do something a little different and not only bring out lost tracks from Big L (R.I.P.), a true lyrical legend (the 11th anniversary of whose death just passed), but also give exposure to an MC who didn’t get his proper shine back in the day: Silky Black.
Big L / Silky Black Snippets
I just noticed that UGHH.com are shipping Roc Marciano‘s solo debut a week early. Go here to cop the CD or here for the vinyl EP version. Me? I’ll be ordering both, since the record is certified dope. You can catch my new interview with Marcy on Monday.
Pro tip: Use the code UGHH50 in your order for a $5 discount when you spend more than $50.
Anyone with a passing knowledge of hardcore 80’s rap should be familiar with Boston’s TDS Mob and their classic ‘Dope For The Folks’ and ‘Scratch Reaction’. Thanks to the Diggers With Grattitude crew, who previously brought us that incredible Juice Crew EP amongst other things, you can now pre-order any or all of these new TDS Mob releases. Details below:
Here’s the world premier of the Sid Roams Remix EP to keep you going until the Zombie Musik album drops. Featuring remixes of classics from Big L, M.O.P., Mobb Deep, Ghostface Killah, Jay-Z and Cam’Ron.
