Newest episode from the Days With Dr. Yen Lo album, which appears to combine the minds of Ka and Preservation. Check out the previously released ‘Day 0′ and ‘Day 3′ below.
New single from Him-Lo and Clever One, repping that CRC lifstyle.
A late video from the Masterpiece Theatre EP.
Almighty KG was meant to visit Wiz in Atlanta but never showed up. This was the result.
Straight Queens flourishments.
Four of Jazzy Jay‘s Strong City groups released an album during the Uni Records distribution deal – Ice Cream Tee, Busy Bee, Don Baron and Nu Sounds. I vaguely remember owning the Mackin’ album at some stage but not really enjoying anything off it, and listening back now it’s clear that these guys were totally run-of-the-mill. Still, considering their modest talents they did well to have two videos shot, get Afrika Bambaataa to chant the hook, rent some colorful suits and still have enough left over to hire some hawt cheerleaders and video skeezers. ‘Condition Red’ is a slightly better track if you enjoy distorted phone crank callers, otherwise notable for being Skeff Anslem‘s first production credit.
DJ J-Ronin talks to G Rap about his legacy, his old school influences, meeting Big Pun, his friendship with Grand Daddy I.U. and more. Plus KGR mentions that his next LP is titled Hustler’s Bible.
This beat is too ill.
Salutes to DJ Scratch for keeping those drums loud.
Clip from 2014’s The Living Daylights.
WAVE: A True Story In Hip Hop is clearly a film that Mr. Wave had made about himself rather than an impartial documentary, but it looks like it will have some rare footage worth checking out.
The new video from K-Hill, who appeared on Counterstrike 2 with Ominscence. His new EP with Debonair P is available on vinyl here.
I’ve got to admit, Murda took Mad Skillz whole gimmick and bodied it. If he does another one of these next year it will remove the need to ever read a TMZ Rap Blog ever again!
One of the best tracks from The Diam Piece gets a video, directed by Pritt Kalsi.
Season finale of Raf and Dallas’ quest for the best food near the train station.
This slipped past me last year. No explanation required as to why this is required watching/listening.
Here’s a track from $amhill‘s debut album, The $amhill Story. Video directed by Lewis Parker.
Psycho Les carries on Beatnuts tradition with this dedication to racks.
I was directed to this in the comment section of my Pos K interview last year by hotbox but forgot to post it. Take my wife…please!
Freddie Foxxx over a quality DJ Premier track.
If you need me, I’ll be hanging around the comment section of this video until that crab who insists that Droog is ‘miming’ his rhymes turns up.
Spotted at ego trip.
Two ‘Best Producer’s On The Mic’ connect, politic, ditto.
Has Midtown got any got spots to chow down? Will the IC’s dine on swine or take the ‘healthy option’?
Shout out to your boy with the parrot on his shoulder as the IC’s continue to explore Harlem spots to grab grub from.
