Beatz & Lyrics Show


RJ Payne – “Ski’d Up” feat. Freeway (Prod. By Ski Beatz)

Let’s f**king GO!

Damn right! When RJ and Freeway get it in with the lyrical wordplay, quite frankly, it is not a game! Neither of these dudes play when it comes to the BARZ! Good collab for both of them on this “Ski’d Up” track. Ski Beatz is responsible for the Ski‘ing (HA)!

Rockness Monsta – “Winners Circle”

I’m Michael J with a Fox and she’s so Bad!

How do you think Rock got to where he got? He got out there to find it, grind it, and shine it. Rinse and repeat. And as you hear, dude’s sword is still sharp. He is still out there, getting it out the mud. The path to the “Winners Circle” is NOT pretty. At all!

(Mud? Maybe more like ‘out the bog.’ That sword grind – like, forging a sword from bog ore – has been around for a long time. See how got out there to get it – meaning ore out of the bog – back, back, BACK in the day here.) #BecauseImGettingItOutTheBog #BecauseImANerd #ImAGrimyGeek

Performance: Freddie Gibbs – “Cataracts” (Video)

Whatever Gibbs has got going on while trying to make it through this Coronaviral Era now thrust upon us, I think he will be okay. And we will be okay. His ‘lock in’ at the house is probably not as much a lock down as a chill out (because smoking on that good ‘script’). But before going in, Crtl let the man in to bless their mic and spit on his Rx for them “Cataracts” (HA)!

Curren$y x Fendi P – “Swang” (Video)

Lookit. Any hate you got for Jet Life will not fly over here. It will not even get to board on standby. And no hate in the overheads; can’t even check it (as I might have otherwise suggested). Because hatred is just too caustic to allow around while the rest of us are catching flights. So just keep it to yourself if you got any, because I am giving all Jet Life music out there a long look, esp. if Curren$y is involved #RespectDue #RespectEarn

Okay, thank you for letting me rant that on out. Just wanted to head off haters at the gore. Here is more reason to check for Jet Life like I do. This “Swang” is off that “Smokin’ Potnas” album (out now).

JR Writer – “Pedigree” (Prod. By Boger) [Video]

I’d ask who wants the smoke from JR Writer, but the only ones that’d say “yes” would (1) have no idea of the “Pedigree” this guy has or (2) would already be too busy heating up a mic with more fire rhyming that a li’l bit… too busy to answer a rhetorical question like that.

Bishop Nehru – “Too Lost” (Prod. By DJ Premier) [Video]

Sick! And not because dude’s visuals takes rhyming off the top a wee bit, waaaay bit, too too far (severed head much? yeezus)… But because he’s got bars AND he’s got the one and only DJ Premier on the track! Yeah, that part. This Bishop Nehru jawn, “Too Lost,” is too ill #NoCorona

Drag-On – “Part 33” (Freestyle) [Video]

See y’all niggas hope y’all can. I know I can!

Look. I know good and well I am a Drag-On fan. But I also know what he means when he draws his hand back from folks who try to shake it now that he’s got things moving and shaking… Sir/madam, Drag ain’t gone give you no kinds of handshake. After all, what chance did you take to get him to this point? Were you in the fight with him, or were you just rooting for him (if that) outside the ring… like a fan?

Tall Black Guy – “Dance Forever” / “The Return Of Here & Now” (EP)

Hope you are safely tucked away in your [Coronavirus-free] fortress full of good snacks and solitude… Hey, if you have kids or other folks staying with you, that solitude part is not a given. They may not allow you much solitude, being cooped up at home just the same as you. And it’s not like they can just go outside any old time. If the kids are in schools like these Atlanta kids over here, then schooling is now virtual; and the homework is still due!

Good news is that the artists and producers and deejays are realizing they shouldn’t leave us… without a dope beat to step to. Maybe driven by cabin fever or by a desire give us ease in troubled times. Either way, folks like TBG are getting out that work! Here in the form of re-released classics. This post features the two-track trip – “Dance Forever” and “The Return Of Here & Now.”

But take a twirl to another back-in-the-day EP from TBG: “8 Miles To Moenart” too (earlier post for that here).


Showly – “Money Power Respect” Freestyle (Video)

…You don’t wanna see my jawn drawn like a Philly whore!.

That’s how that Showly flow will do you. Hit you in the noggin with bar after bar until feel them. Then when the onslaught is over, you are compelled to hit replay and let the bars bop you in the head again just as hard. No wonder you got that headache! You’ll be a’ight though. It’s Hip-Hop!

We both got money. Only difference is there’s blood on ours.

Straight-forward beat, and lay straight-forward lyrics from some straight lions, and you get a nice FIRE going. Good look for Joey Bad holding it down with these Golden Era greats – DMX, Meth, and Facemob.

Yung JB – “Blazers” feat. Cory Gunz (Prod. By Young Devante) [Video]

You got worried when you saw Yung (as in most folks calling themselves ‘Yung’ anything can NOT be real spitters)… and got worried, didn’t you?


Okay, well, either (1) you already knew about JB, (2) you thought Gunz was gonna carry the song with his barz, or (3) you are flat-out LYING!

It’s alright. I will admit it. I was worried. Until I clicked play. FIRE #Blazers
