Benny The Butcher – “Crowns For Kings” feat. Black Thought (Prod. By DJ Shay)

See, before I knew an A&R, I was weighing hard, back when Nicki Minaj was in a training bra.

GEEEE YOT DAAAMN!!! BAAAARZ!!! Benny been a BEAST in these streets. Now, you see why he fears no emcee in the booth. Hell, just seeing him give Black Thought a feature should have clued you in on that.

Additional instruments are played by David Guy on trumpet and Ian Hendrickson Smith on sax.

Benny The Butcher brings you his “The Plugs I Met” EP – Now available everywhere music is streamed and sold! The new 7-track EP features Pusha T, Conway The Machine, Jadakiss, RJ Payne and 38 Spesh with production by Alchemist, Daringer and DJ Shay.

070 Phi – “Good Contracts” (Video)

Another one… from the Mass Appeal Starting 5… specifically, from 070 Phi. This “Good Contracts” visual is for the single off his EP entitled “Outside” (linked below).

The concept behind “Good Contracts” is keeping yourself out of a vulnerable position where somebody can take advantage of you. In the video, one of the characters involved himself with a women that he met Outside and brought her to where he makes his money. His relationship with her was like a bad contract because all she wants to do is take advantage of him and rob him for his money. Metaphorically speaking my character is a good lawyer that helps him out of his situation.

Tone Beatz x Lex Boogie From The Bronx – “Old Habits Die Hard” (EP)

“Old Habits Die Hard”… that’s it. That’s what Tone Beatz & Lex Boogie From The Bronx are trying to tell you. Trying to show you. Know what? They are not trying; they’ve succeeded. Check it out!

The fact is that it is HARD to stop doing things that I have been doing for such a long time. The longer you do something, the more ingrained it becomes, and the harder it is to change especially if you love it.

Over the years Tone Beats and I, Lex Boogie From The Bronx have come accustomed to making beats and creating songs, and at this point, it is just part of who we are (Hip-Hop).

“Old Habits Die Hard” is a short 5-song ep we are presenting. The project is an example of what we do have been doing and how we vibe. We have recorded several songs over the years for our upcoming release titled 10456 and wanted to give a glimpse of what’s to come with this EP. The later project represents where I’m from but the perspective presented on this EP is an excerpt or some insight on where I am.
The 5 songs were recorded over the course of 2 weeks, and a trip to Augusta to visit Tone, all while maintaining my day to day, handling my responsibilities as a man and living this ART life.

Hit the jump for bonus video content!

Cormega Speaks On Queensbridge Rappers Going For Theirs And Getting It While He Was Getting It In On The Streets (Video)

Great interview! I especially like how Raine and Cormega got into respect for the Culture vs. the Street in this discussion. Gonna check for that Cormega release off the strength. Respek!

Cormega has returned with a new EP titled “Mega.” The five-song collection is produced entirely by Grammy-winning hitmaker Street Runner and has one lone guest, veteran rapper-producer Havoc of Mobb Deep fame. For those real MCs out there, ‘Mega even included the instrumentals of the five songs so you can spit your own lyrics on them.

Cantrell – “Fo Five” (Prod. By MiSCHIEF BOY x Rahki) [Video]

Sh!t get scary like Freddy, no Fab 5.

Riding out to a nice beat, we get more of Cantrell to help bring in 2019 the right way with this one.

Following the release of his debut EP Stardust 2 Angels, Cantrell returns with a brand new video for “Fo Five” to kick off the year.

Directed by OPN SZN, “Fo Five” begins with a young man that is ostracized by his peers on the basketball court due to his ragged appearance. After a chance encounter, the Albany-native finds himself providing a helping hand and some much-needed guidance. The video is reflective of a culture dominated by material possessions rather than the person who sports them.
