GFK’s current squeeze judges lesbians while he catches forty winks.

It turns out that Ghostface being on a reality TV show is the greatest thing since 3-6 Mafia tried to open a restaurant with Big Pussy and Elliot Spitzer‘s hoo-er. In the second episode, Pretty Toney discovers some troubling news about his broad…

Nothing says, “OK guys, I give up!” like recording the video to your most acclaimed verse 18 years later. That being said, someone throws an old TV on the ground!



Raekwon – A Rainy Day

rainy

It’s not “Rainy Dayz 2″ but it works regardless. Actually, let’s just avoid any rap part two’s not involving Mobb Deep.



A$AP Mob feat. A$AP Nast and Method Man – Trillmatic

This shameless attempt to pander to the CRC crowd actually works on the strength of Meth’s superb contribution. That being said, an A$AP Mob song being posted on Unkut may just signal the coming of the apocolypse.



Raekwon – It’s My Thing

The Chef takes it back to the “Seven Minutes of Funk” / EPMD chamber. Spotted at Nah Right.



Marco Polo feat. Large Professor, Inspectah Deck, O.C, Tragedy Khadafi & DJ Revolution – Astonishing

astonishing

One of the highlights of the forthcoming Marco Polo album PA2: The Director’s Cut, as Large, Rebel INS, O.C. and Trag all go in. DJ Revolution steals the show, however, with what can only be described as scratching so great it should be illegal.



Video: Czarface – Hazmat Rap

Caught up with DJ 7L in Boston, where he confirmed that they’re currently working on Czarface 2.

First single from Tony Touch’s Piecemaker 3: The Return Of The 50 MC’s, produced by Toca and Psycho Les. Kinda wish RZA didn’t rap on this though.



Ghostface Killah feat. Masta Killa, U-God, Killa Sin and INS Deck – Murder Spree [Apollo Brown Remix]

From the limited-edition tape version of 12 Reasons To Die, which is available when you buy the LP or CD at a bricks and mortar spot.



Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge feat. Inspectah Deck, U​-​God, Masta Killa and Killa Sin – Murder Spree

Here’s a preview of the 12 Reasons To Die comic and another track from the album. There are a bunch of different limited-edition sets for the album, featuring all kind of RAERness over at Get On Down. Hopefully the Apollo Brown remix tape will be available separately in the future.



Cappadonna – Slang Editorial 2

“Dutch Master train sets” are the must-have Christmas gift for the seeds this year, ya heard?



Cappadonna – The Unkut Mini Interview

cappadonna

Cappadonna released a new double album last month titled Eyrth, Wynd and Fyre, which focused on more message-orientated tracks. I caught up with him for a quick discussion that provided as many jewels as it did dead-ends. He also explained he makes his music “the best way I know how, by milking this cow”, which makes me wish that more MC’s would answer questions in rhyme form.

Robbie: Ghost and Rae told me you were the Slick Rick of Staten Island. Do you agree?

Cappadonna: It just came from where we was at and where we were brought-up, just coming from Brooklyn and Staten Island. A lot of my friends were from different places, like from Queens and The Bronx, so it was a collaboration of all of those styles that was put together. We had brothers before us that was into fly things and rapping and fashion, so I mainly looked-up to cats from around my way. Mainly my brother Sham God, Ice, Ugar, Jerry G and all of ‘em. Irwin, The Villas. Phase 3, the Freedom Machine, Party Doctors, The Force MD’s. All of that was right at our fingertips, all the time. At an early age I was already mimicking some of the great styles and great flavors that caused my peers to be attracted to it. We bounced flavors around on each other, but I’m glad that my brothers feel like I put some flavor in they ear.

Czarface feat. Ghostface Killah – Savagely Attack

czarface figure

I can’t be bothered reviewing albums anymore since everyone that’s interested has already streamed/stolen/ordered it anyway, but I will say that the Czarface album is surprisingly enjoyable. It’s fair to say that DJ 7L is in fine form here, handling the majority of the beats and cuts, while Inspectah Deck and Esoteric display a good chemistry as they share lead microphone duties. “World War 4″ features Deck over “Assembly Line”, which is genius in itself, while the production on “Dead Zone” and “Czar Rafeli” are serious stand-outs, earning this LP my coverted “New Rap That Doesn’t Suck” stamp of approval. Available now through Brick Records.
