Inspectah Deck – “Game Don’t Change” (Video)

The jab-jab rhyme style. The vivid lyrical imagery. The wailing loop in the instrumental. And now add that buzzing (like Killer Bees swarming). Yeah, we have a Wu General sighting. It’s Deck doing dirt and damage! Wild and crazy video, too.

The “Game Don’t Change” is the 1st single off the [album] “Chamber #9” by the Legendary Wu-Tang Clan member Inspectah Deck.

You can grab “Chamber #9” at rebelins.com (out now).

Avrex – “Step Into The Light” feat. No Malice (Prod. By Astro) [Video]

Went from pitchin’ in kitchens to serving God’s mission…

Yeah, that Avrex; Gangstarr affiliated. Now you can link him to No Malice. And he stays linked to the BARZ. Righteous BARZ. For The King Of Kings! But I’m gonna let the lyricists assist on getting that Gospel to the streets. Street disciples for real.

The MA-born, VA-raised Avrex partners up with fellow Virginian No Malice on this vintage Hip-Hop banger. Avrex drops his 2nd single “Step Into The Light” feat. No Malice, produced by Astro off his upcoming album “Growth.” This is a poignant record with bars from both Avrex who is on his rookie album and No Malice the seasoned veteran. The God-fearing bars dropped here are definitely high-level rap. No Malice, previously of the Clipse, blesses the track with witty word play and a tenacious hunger for more, as if this is his debut. Avrex speaks truth and logic with various punchlines and a creative monsoon of style, drenching the track with pure Hip-Hop. #avrex #highlevelrap #stepintothelight #growth #nomalice

R&B: Elle Varner – “Kinda Love” (Video)

The Elle Varner audio and visuals for this “Kinda Love” is EXACTLY what we been looking & listening for… Smooth, smoky, sultry sauce being poured out. She is steadily telling us what she doesn’t want, and it makes us want more. Wow!

Off that “Ellevation” project (out now). Enjoy.

Nas – “Queensbridge Politics” (Prod. By Pete Rock)

Queensbridge just ain’t any other hood…

Nas lets us know that it’s Queensbridge over everybody else! Spitting some history, shouting out his homies (including the dearly departed), this is that good grade of N-A-S that you wanted to blow some C-B-D to. Ha!

This Pete Rock-produced jawn is off “The Lost Tapes 2” album (out now). Did you know Nas had Al Jarreau on there as one of the features?

D.Tail – The Cypha 1.5 feat. Joell Ortiz x Awate x Leaf Dog x Ras Kass (Turkish Dcypha Remix)

Emcees of a feather flip birds and words together, right? Well, I’m saying it’s right. And I’m saying that D.Tail is showing some of the same ‘feathers’ that folks like Joell Ortiz & Ras Kass be flashing to the masses…

After a prolific year with his 2018 EP “Disk 2 U Cant Do That” (with Producer Turkish Dcypha) UK Native D.Tail releases his debut LP “Happy Accident.”

A Love Letter to Underground and alternative Hip-Hop. Full to the brim with abstract rhyming, intense wordplay and hyper lyricism across its 40-minute run time with silky smooth soul loops and abstract chops provided by an ensemble of super producers made up of Turkish Dcypha, Marley D, Herda Vim, Klass Klown Karl & Henny Knightz. Includes the single “Is Anyone There? freestyle” and guest appearances from frequent collaborators Britizen Kane & RaggZ not to mention a posse cut which features Joel Ortiz (Slaughterhouse), Awate, Leaf Dog (The Four Owls) & Rass Kass.

Common – “Hercules” feat. Swizz Beatz (Video)

YEAH!

“Let Love” win the day… Love for the people and the ‘hood… and sticking up for the bro working the corner store in the ‘hood. Common stepped up as a hero with the power of “Hercules” (with Swizz amping him on the soundtrack to this mini-movie). Empowering the sista and the brotha to help stop the othas from heisting and getting away with it.

A scene reminiscent of the Prince Akeem and Semmi takedown of Samuel Jackson’s character trying to rob McDowell’s in “Coming To America” (updated, just as cool though)!

Dancehall: Christopher Martin – “LIFE” (Prod. By Omar Anthoneil Samuels x Cory William Stoneman) [Video]

Maybe not the Chris Martin you were expecting… Bonus points for you if it was. Check out this Christopher Martin video for “Life” off his album, “And Then” (out now).

The video was good vibes, it was good to have my brother Busy Signal [who has a cameo in the video]. We just wanted a simple video that captured the message, showing the simplicity in life and just hanging out.

Bruse Wane – “Keepers Of The Flame” feat. Chris Rivers

Welcome to the jungle… welcome to the swamp!

And the defenders of it all are none other than this almost Marvel-DC duo. Killer combo doing a killer collabo!

TheBatMan and the “Son Of The Punisher” joins forces once again. The last time Bruse Wane and Chris Rivers got on a track together it was to spit Venom along side the late great Sean Price. The lyrical tandem have finally re-united on the hard hitting track “Keepers Of The Flame” (South Bronx 2.0). Bruse and Chris go for the jugular on this one, as the Bronx emcees remind you that their Borough is thoro!

Tyga – “Lightskin Lil Wayne” (Video)

Wow. Talk about an homage… with a montage of Lil Wayne-styled scenes in this video. Weezy is probably cool with it all. He’s on as a feature on the “Legendary” LP after all. Yeah, let’s credit Tyga for a slick business move for this “Lightskin Lil Wayne” maneuver.

Eric Roberson – “Leave It In” (Video)

I’ve known many stallions. But baby, you’re a unicorn!

Hold up! Is that Jill Scott? Nope, but the vivacious Laurin Talese is nowhere near a disappointment! Ham mercy (hams & yams!!).

You better talk that psychadellic slick talk to her then, Erro! Matter of fact… sing that! That way, she can’t resist. Chances are she’ll let you “Leave It In” (yeeeaaaah, freaky-freaky-now, like THAT)!

“Leave It In” off of the “LNS” album. Available exclusively in “The Process” at www.EricRobersonMusic.com

Oh, Eric means he is leaving his heart in (wink). Got it… And, for the love of love, somebody give that man some ‘more cowbell’ (dope)!
