Showbiz x A.G. – “Take It Back” (EP)

DITC!! Sho & AG are repping hella well with this mixtape heat they are serving. “Take It Back” with this EP like few besides these two could do. Head nodding boom bap. This is so right that it’s righteous!

SHOWBIZ X A.G. – TAKE IT BACK (EP)

Somethin’ Like That – “Speech Rich” feat. NamedTobias. x Matt Storm (Prod. By S.L.M.N.) [Video]

The reason I wanted to connect with you is that I’ve got a music video releasing on April 13, 2017 and was wondering if you would do a write-up/interview/or post for it on JayForce. I really like the format of your channel and from what I gather, you’re very dedicated to tastemaking, pop-culture and great music/community building – so I was hoping that you’ll consider this content that I’ve got to share into the global Hip-hop environment. There are definitely messages in this song that should be heard and considered by all!
Somethin’ Like That

Now… how could I refuse such a heartfelt and graciously-worded request? I mean, if it was not up to par, we would have to find a way give an easy let-down… but this is dope stuff (whew, thank goodness)! Check out this visual for the title track off the EP from Somethin’ Like That. Featuring NamedTobias. (I’m including the period, as the named is consistently spelled) and Matt Storm. Beat by S.L.M.N. This is “Speech Rich.”

Hit the jump for more info on the artist and movement…including an extended version of this video (featuring an in-depth interview).

SkyBlew x Pabzzz – “What’s Beyond The Sky”

Yeah, yeah, yeeeeah maaaan! Came across this new, new smooth, smooth “What’s Beyond The Sky” from the homie SkyBlew. Off the “Dreams, Toonami & Jazzier Days”EP.

This EP is inspired by Toonami, and the Jazz we grew up on, that’s still embedded inside of us. It’s a soundtrack for Dreamers & those who still believes in HOPE & LOVE! We decided to release the EP on Nujabes’ birthday, in remembrance of his legacy and his influence on us both. The body may depart, but the soul is an ART… Love is eternal.
SkyBlew

He went across the water for this one; in a manner of speaking. The Jazz Hop Cafe is based in the UK.

Ain’t nobody ever ready. You just gotta do it!

Rapper Big Pooh – “Potpourri (Dead Flowers)” feat. Finian St. Omer II [Video]

Kinda raw! One of the dopest Hip-Hop beats with a horror theme mixed in since horrorcore rap was a thing. And of course Rapper Big Pooh and Finian St. Omer II bodied this piece from their body of work. Grab the popcorn. We already got the “Potpourri (Dead Flowers)” on deck. This single is off that “Everything 4 Sale” project out now.

Rapsody – “Gonna Miss You” (Clean)

Did you check out that “Crown” EP that Rapsody has out? We posted it on here, so no excuses. Either say ‘yes’ or go do it after you get an earful of this jawn from it above. Wooooo! Rapsody f*cking BLAZED on this fire azz track. “Gonna Miss You” is edited, so I had to self-edit out of respect for the Queen. “Crown”… it’s an appropriate headdress & title for Rapsody.

Ta-ku x Wafia – “Love Somebody”

Oh yeah. We effs with Ta-ku something heavy already over here. But this “Love Somebody” is doing nothing but locking us into long-term fandom. Dope music and vocalization. Great choice to lure the world over to copping the EP “(m)edian” out now.
