IDK – “24” (Video)

Run-it-back-run-it-back-run-it-back! It’s IDK running us this “24” track. Subdued beat, but that does nothing to tamp down the speed and flows of IDK.

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?

Kayo Genesis – “Distance” (Prod. By Tariq x Garfield) [Video]

SKILLZ!! Lyrical skills from Kayo Genesis rapping on the “Distance” track and some visual creativity that Spike Jonze could be proud of (Google him).

And I am feeling the concept… I mean, if you are gonna put me in a friend zone or we do not have kids together or ‘relations’ or such, respect the ZONE (boundaries)… Give me my space and my peace: Don’t bring your boyfriend problems to me. And what’s with all the yakkety-yak when I’m trying to listen to the silence??! Go talk to your actual dude or something #Facts #FaxAndEmail

Sam Peezy x Tetraz – “Grown And Sexy” (Radio Bass Version)

On more than one occasion, we have been accused of having an East-coast preference when it comes to our Hip-Hop. Okay, we will cop to that; but no pleas. That’s just how we be (our “steez” as some heads might call it). However, we do spotlight Indies, up-and-comers, regional & historical figures in music, too. YOU gotta admit that.

And admit this… any so-called hardcore Hip-Hop head had absolutely nooooo problem with a good down south booty shake party (have mercy)! And this guy Tetraz (of Tetraz & K Chill fame), was one of those cats that used to get it jumping in the spots that were really hot when bass music was king in the South (and at those parties East Cost heads acted like they weren’t down with… HA)! Got a couple of golden ‘oldies’ from the 20th century embedded after the jump. But how about taking this new jawn, produced by the homie Sam Peezy (aka Tony Factory), for a ride down the stream? Do it. Come on…

This is the 135bpm BASS Version of the new southern soul song entitled Grown and Sexy performed by Sam Peezy & Tetraz. #GrownAndSexyMusic

Salaam Remi x Joell Ortiz – “Keep’n On”

Salaam Remi laid out a beat for Joell Ortiz to spit this “Keep’n On” on, so he could let these folks know what’s going onnnnnn… Hahaa!

(And that Ortiz line about not throwing food in food fights, because he remembers going to bed hungry a few nights; that’s TOUGH!)

Talib Kweli Welcomes ‘Sophisti-Ratchet’ Angela Rye To The “People’s Party” (Video)

If the bridge can be Hip-Hop, cross it!

Are there two more ‘woke’ people (Kweli & Rye) in America today? Valid question…

On the latest People’s Party, Kweli sits down with political activist Angela Rye to discuss Hip-Hop’s influence on culture, their approaches to Twitter trolls, the impact of the 2016 election, and the need for people to better understand where they get their information.

It really is VERY different now.

Wale – “On Chill” feat. Jeremih (Prod. By LT Mo x Va)

Wale back on the R&B’d out slide and ride out jam tip. Bop with this with your girl. Be “On Chill” with her tonight…

The GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum Washington, D.C. rapper/poet/agitator and iconoclast serves up his signature slick wordplay over a sultry minimal beat. Produced by LT Mo and Va, Wale winds up vivid verses for a lover, promising to “modify your energy” before declaring, “If we good, that’s good enough.” Meanwhile, Jeremih carries a soulful and sharp refrain that’s hypnotic and hummable. This marks a reunion for the two stars who turned up together on 2014’s gold-certified “The Body.” Once again, they deliver a banger that borders Hip-Hop and R&B and elevates to new territory at the same time.
