Bit of semisweet memory lane traveling at the start and end of this. Not together, but cool with wifey Faith Evans. This is her and Biggie together again on track. Here’s “Legacy.” Posted earlier on here, “The King & I” is linked below.
Powerful posthumous heat from the late great J Dilla with some assist on the production by J Rocc and lyrical content delivered by Bussa Buss and Leader Quest Q-Tip. Check out this previously unreleased “Motor City” blend from the album (linked below).
The late, great J Dilla is widely regarded as one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time. Since his death in 2006, Dilla’s mother Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey has worked tirelessly to further her son’s legacy, and her latest effort is the new project Motor City. Inspired by Dilla’s beloved hometown, Motor City is a collection of rare and unreleased Jay Dee instrumentals, hand-selected and sequenced by Ma Dukes. Conceived as a “letter” to her son, Motor City is packaged in a limited-edition mailing envelope, complete with a handwritten message from Ma Dukes to J Dilla inside. This 19-track collection will be available at physical and digital outlets worldwide on April 21st, 2017.
Nas getting down on “The Get Down Part II” soundtrack with this jawn “Angels With Dirty Faces.” iTunes credits the song to “Nasir Jones as Mr. Books,” as in one of the characters on the Netflix series.
NxWorries with a visual for another single slated for the “Yes Lawd!” remix LP.
“Scared Money” – directed by Calmatic – is a homage to the film Paid in Full, set in the year 1988. The section part of the video contains a remix of “Best One,” produced by Knxwledge, from a forthcoming, full-length Yes Lawd! remix album.
Yep! The video goes there. From “More Politics” by Termanology, this is the visual for “We’re Both Wrong” (produced by Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest). Saigon on the feature. Warning: Lyricists crossing…lines!
K-Dot’s Damn album is all him. Only three tracks even allow another soul to say a Damn thing. And while there are a few scant ‘reviewers’ who have found something to hate about this recent Kendrick campaign, most (including most likely you) have nothing but kudos for Lamar’s latest – “DAMN”.
One time, and one more time, for the old school! Phat Kat (aka Ronnie Euro) doing it “So Old School” for the Dirty Glove AND for that Boom-Bap. Nice! You can pick this up along with all the other gems on the “The S.O.S. Project” (produced entirely by DJ Dister).
Saw The Chainsmokers do “Paris” live on SNL (posted here) and had to see if there was a music video for it. Scooooore!
“Paris” is a single from “Memories…Do Not Open” recently released by The Chainsmokers.
Just a while ago, we gave you the “Main Course” from ScienZe. Good, right? So, who’s ready for dessert. Well, ready or not, y’all are gonna get this work! Here’s the whole project, available now for FREE streaming below, “Kind Of Dessert.” Follow the link to grab your own copy if you like.
One of the things that could have been a casualty of Stephen Colbert’s move from Comedy Central to big network TV would have been the kinds of artists he booked. Fortunately, we are still getting to see the likes of Joey Bada$$ do their thing on The Late Show on CBS. Dope!
Rapper Joey Bada$$ makes his Late Show debut with a track from his upcoming album ‘All-Amerikkkan Bada$$.’
It’s wild how wild the singles and videos that come from “The Wild” are. Guess that’s the theme and pretty much the point of the whold thing, right? Well, if so, this “M&N” joint is toeing the right line. The alliteration back-and-forth flow between Raekwon and P.U.R.E are everything on this man!
You ain’t gotta get me lit. I got my own light!
– Brother Ali
As beautiful as the song is, this video… more so! We posted Ali speaking on his “Own Light” earlier on here. Now, he follows up the audio with the video, and we are so on that, too. Encouraging you to use your hearts for What Hearts Are For. That Brother Ali LP is looking like the download to grab in May (or pre-order now).
Truth hurts. I got a high pain tolerance.
– Homeboy Sandman, from “As Long As you Know” (a single on “Veins”)
Mm’yeah see? Just like that, see? Homeboy Sandman hatched a plan and launched that new “Veins” project, see?! And best bet that whole jawn is gonna be dope. Very little fanfare. Just solid sounds from the Stones Throw mainstay.
Nice one from the “Headnod Suite” LP. “Bahia Dreamin'” is like yeeeaaahh, the kind of groovin’ my dream B-Girl would be into. Lovely, and lovely to come home to for certain! Be damned if I leave my smooth duchess home alone with the actual smooth percussionist Karriem Riggins though. Naaaah son!
(Watch to the end. Get ready to go ‘What The F-?’)
(Gotta love that cover art!)
BARS! Ear candy, but nothing sweet.
If you load a track with Ras Kass, Rapper Big Pooh, and Skyzoo, the lyrical content will likely hit hard enough, often enough, to kill… or at least be considered killer. Agreed? Well, whether you do or not, hit play and take these “Bars Of Death” upside the dome. Protect that neck. Lyrical lumps and bumps. Bumping beat by Creestal. A single off the “Differences” project.
Pro Era! Top Dawg! The latest leak out from the soon due out “All-Amerikkkan Bada$$” has Joey hollering out ‘f**k Donald Trump!’ and ScHoolboy Q ack’n just as much a damned fool right with him on it. Put this thing to bed like “Rockabye Baby!”
“We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service” will likely be ATCQ’s last official project. Just won’t be the same without Phife Dawg (RIP). Continuing the line of best-for-last stuff (like that “We The People…”), the Tribe dropped dope black and white visuals for “Dis Generation.”
