Stirring theme can be uniquely treated with shakiness in the effects, to say the least. G-Unit just dropped an EP and this single, an of-by-and-for the streets joint called “Ahhh Sh!t.” Got the video embedded above (RIP Mike Brown, respect Ferguson protesters, #$%! police brutality). You can also pick up the EP (“The Beauty of Independence”) via the link below.
His name is Prince. And he is funky. AND…he is dropping two plates this year (on September 29, 2014) – “Art Official Age” and “Plectrum Electrum” – because he can! Check out the dope artwork and this single he leaked entitled “Clouds” (featuring 3rdEyeGirl, his collaborator on “Plectrum Electrum”). Click that play button above and be amazed again by the Purple Rocker!
Hip-Hop is worldwide. You know that The Nation is worldwide, right? So, why wouldn’t the documentary talking about 20 years of the G.O.D.M.C. Nas’ definitive work – “Time Is Illmatic” – be distributed to a worldwide/international audience. Well, it will be. Tribeca Film acquired the distribution rights to make it so. October 3, 2014. Get ready world.
You can watch the trailer we posted here earlier in April or click the pic above for the brand new Quicktime version.
Outstanding… that’s that life related by the video for “Come Up” by 50 Cent – featuring Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Kidd Kidd and Tony Yayo. Yep. G-Unit! Ice on the wrist. Champagne in the glass. Bling-bling and bravado. Buxom beauties abound at the big house. You know how G-Unit do.
Bad b!tches don’t f#ck these Soundcloud rappers. – Tony Yayo
Did…did Yayo drop the line of the rhyme? Thinking so. Check it another nice Eif Rivera video above.
A-L-C! Did he just freak the Formula-1 engine sound and pepper in some claps over an ‘almost Night Rider‘ beat? Solid work by the beatmaster Alchemist. This is the official score for the launch of the WATCHxWITNESS website brought to you by Jason Goldwatch and 13thWitness. The site will be a one-stop-and-look documenting their adventures and announcing their upcoming outgoings. We posted video of one of ‘em – Gumball 3000 – on here earlier.
The Kris. The Teacha. Sharing knowledge about what Hip-Hop is, and ought to be, to us in the Hip-Hop Nation. Foundational knowledge about the spirit of where it came from kicked. Sponsored by Supreme.
Apart of their new Fall/Winter 2014 Collection, skate brand Supreme called on hometown Hip-Hop legend KRS-ONE for a special t-shirt collection paying homage to the Bronx MC. The offering includes tees featuring dope images from the KRS’s career such as his iconic “By All Means Necessary” album cover.
Eyes down, windows up. That’s the way we light those blunts!
Heh heh. Audio Push and Mike L on some audio kush with this love song paying homage to their ‘main thang’ “Mary Jane.” Tight… like they roll ‘em. No doubt. Push play and fire up with this FREE stream and download (below). And that artwork. Blazing!
America. Hip-Hop Nation. Humanity. Killer Mike will make you proud again in this interview. After a night of engaging in more “righteous ratchetness” with DJ Envy, Mike accepted the invitation to fall through and chat with the crew the next morning during the Power 105 morning show. This conversation rivals the knowledge and passion kicked in Killer Mike’s CNN interview on all matters relating to Ferguson and Mike Brown (posted earlier here).
If you don’t have good common sense, you shouldn’t be a policeman on foot patrol. If you don’t have great common sense, you shouldn’t be a policeman in command. So, is it harder for a policeman? Absolutely. Are you held at a higher standard? Absolutely. Are you the only civil servant with the power of life and death in your hands? Absolutely, and that requires more responsibility.
- Killer Mike

The release for Homeboy Sandman’s “Hallways” apparently got pushed back a week (to September 9, 2014). It happens. But in the meantime enjoy Sandman’s latest leak from the forthcoming LP entitled “Problems” (produced by Knxwledge).
Young RJ (of Slum Village) on the beat. Illa J and Frank Nitt (The Yancey Boys) hitting us with a single entitled “Global Warming” (featuring Slum Village). Re-linked SV’s “Sunset Blvd” for you below, too. You’re welcome.
What we really do it for? Money, power, respect! – Boaz
Pittsburgh, PA, the hard way! Boaz going hard over a hard beat “Like This” (produced by !llmind). Whew! And catch that change-up at the end. The beat kind of ‘backs off’ and really lets the lyrics flow through. Certified dopeness.
Bonus: Check out a remix of “Like This” (featuring Crooked I, Sean Price and Chevy Woods) on “Real Name, No Gimmicks” Vol. 1 below.
No. No. NOOOOOOOOO! Why would someone dooooo this?
Okay, folks have been talking about Nicki’s video for “Anaconda” (calling it ‘the sh!t’… mainly for the visuals of abundant azz… or just, well, sh!t… and even then, you can always watch on mute). But this… this is audio vandalism… AND FUNNY AS HELL!
(Hmm… what if one or more of the girls ripped a few on the set?)
Question is though: Would you still hit? Are you sure? Go get your 3rd grade mindset and watch. Sophomoric fun in this “Fart Remix.”
Hahaaaa! Reggie Noble (Redman) is a FOOL for retouching “Good Kisser” like this. He came straight from the soil – homegrown vocalization over Usher’s instant classic – with an homage to the good good.
“Don’t no bud get me high like you. Bang, bang, bang…”
You gotta watch y’all. And I gotta give props to Bad Magics for this dooby snack. Enjoy.

Raekwon flips a few classics again for what seems like his weekly Throwback Thursday series of freestyles. This time around ‘The Chef’ reaches into his bag for the Michael Jackson classics ‘Got To Be There’ & then segues into ‘The Girl Is Mine’ duet with Paul McCartney. Rae continues to hit us with all these musical appetizers before his next album ‘F.I.L.A.’ drops.
Goldi Gold hit us with the news of his upcoming art show, and we had to share. “Invest In Gold” looks set up to be more like an art experience than just a show. Goldi with details…
[M]y first solo art show. Featuring 22 all new unseen pieces (All art work for Sale) Limited edition prints, buttons, mix cd & wine.
And still he finds a way to flash that incredible smile. Watch above. It’s heart-wrenching, and yet, eight-year-old Kaleem and his family find a way to keep it moving. On top of stifling poverty and poor living conditions, Kaleem has been saddled with a rare disorder (so rare doctors don’t even have a name for it) that has caused his hands to grow well out of proportion. Each hand is over 13 inches in length and weighs in excess of eight kilograms (over 17 pounds). His unnamed disability keeps him from going to school (as he would make other students uncomfortable) or even feeding himself. An unfortunate condition, and Kaleem’s parents can nowhere near afford any treatment. Please watch this video, and realize that Kaleem could have been you… or your baby. Reflection brings perspective.
