Chris Rivers – “Can’t Fight The Healing”

That son of a Pun, Rivers! Back with another freestyle. Retouching that Mac Miller jawn this time around.

Chris Rivers rhyming some science over Mac Miller’s “Fight The Feeling” with his own rendition “Can’t Fight The Healing” where Chris paints the picture of someone with a broken heart attempting to find connections elsewhere which are ultimately shallow and unfulfilling. It’s clear that there is a need of time for healing.

Nick Grant – “Black Woman” feat. Stacy Barthe (Video)

You like the closest thing to God, still we call you a b!tch.

Nick Grant getting his Tupac on, taking time from the hella hard bar talk to lift up the sistas. No problem with that. Plus Stacy Barthe on a track is a win! Very soulful.

Blank Face – “Best Of Me” (Freestyle) feat. Ya Highne$$

As boom-bap as the beat is, that Mya “Best Of Me” occupies the R&B side of your mind, right? Well, remember Jay-Z was on the track as a guest, too. So it would not be totally out of balance to max out the rap side of this track’s equation. That’s what Blank Face and Ya Highne$$ did. Check it out!

Blank Face returns with a new freestyle featuring Brooklyn’s Own, Ya Highne$$. Rapping over the classic DJ Clue & Mya track “Best Of Me” (featuring Jay-Z). Both display two different styles that showcase bars, originality and dope rhyme schemes. Blank Face starts it off and passes it to Ya Highne$$ to end the track.

Minty Burns – “Green Man” (Prod. By Pops) [Video]

Hey, it’s Ox! Haven’t seen him since he and DJ Khaled were clowning around in the “Nas Album Done” video. That said, Minty Burns (aka “Green Man”) damn well better NOT let Ox down. Ha!

C Keys x Kazi – “Remember When” feat. DJ Grazzhoppa

Yeaaah mannn, let’s take it back. Reminisce with this “Remember When” joint (speaking of… this song might make you wanna put one up in the air… get a drink and roll ’em if you got ’em). Sure, there was good, and not-as-good, but remember anyway; then turn the page.

C Keys and Kazi release “Remember When,” the first single from their upcoming collaboration album “Keys 2 Kazi.” Cuts are provided by DJ Grazzhoppa.

California emcee C Keys (fka The Infamous MC) was born in San Francisco, raised in Oakland and now residing in Sacramento. Oxnard emcee and producer Kazi did his first record with C Keys back in 2004 on “So Invincible” from Kazi’s “The Plague” album.

The new album “Keys 2 Kazi” will be done soon, written and performed by C Keys and is primarily produced by Kazi. C Keys adds the following about the single: “Remember When” was one of the first beats Kazi sent me, without thinking I immediately turned on my phones voice recording and started improvisational freestyling my verses into it. Once done, I went right to the booth and recorded.”

Frank Knight – “Black in America II” feat. Killah Priest (Of Wu-Tang Clan) [Prod. By The Gonz]

Shout and respect to The Frank Knight rises… doing Justice to The Gonz track, and showing that he’s definitely in League with the likes of Killah Priest. See what I did there? Now, hear what they did on “Black in America II.”

The young Brooklyn emcee Frank Knight revisits his “Black In America” subjected record in his latest release “Black In America II” featuring Killah Priest of Wu-Tang Produced By Minnesota native The Gonz.

Both artists take the time to deliver a multi-layered perspective of two generational experiences that relate to being Black In America. The record entails their lives as black men growing up and living in America. They touch on points ranging from black excellence, police brutality, slavery, Black on Black crime, religion, and spirituality, just to name a few.

This is the perfect mesh of what New York sounds like over smooth modern boom bap vibes, dope lyrics, and perspectives of a legendary MC and a newcomer with something to prove.

Notable Quotables

“America’s history, show they want to get rid of me/They want black history, without credit in history” – Frank Knight

“Police brutality, the beast mentality, eat up our young in the streets of poverty/Melaninated and devil hated they had us selled on slave ships, cause we fell from the spaceships” – Killah Priest

“My zone is New York, it’s get the chrome when you talk/I don’t know what you thought, but when they draw you chalked/You just a lost game of hangman, a body in chalk” – Frank Knight

“Reject from the system, accept ancestors wisdoms/Y’all not God that’s dog backwards, that’s Anubis practice” – Killah Priest

Anoyd – “If I Ruled The World” (Freestyle)

BARZZZZ…to put wack rappers and mumblers under like ZZZZ. See Flex, they go heavy on the barz out West, too. Need proof? Anoyd gone give it to ’em!

Connecticut spitter ANOYD took a trip to the West Coast and pulled up on the Power 106 #LIFTOFF to drop some bars off with Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk on #Freestyle042. Carrying a chip on his shoulder the rapper came as advertised and spit heat.

Over Nas and Lauryn Hill’s classic “If I Ruled The World” instrumental, ANOYD went off for a little more than 5-minutes dropping lines that were too sick and too fluid to talk about.

André 3000 – “Look Ma No Hands”

André Tré Stacks on bass clarinet with James Blake playing the piano. Vibe music. But still different than other Dré you’ve heard. Still keeping us listening and interested.

Dropped this extended play track on Mother’s Day, too, along with that “Me & My” song.

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. André 3000’s beloved mother passed in 2013. He dropped this on Mother’s Day. Get your full issue of tissue, and get ready to get hit in the feels listening to this “Me & My” jawn. If you didn’t call or visit your mom this past Sunday, go do that now (if she is still with us on this plane).

Matter of fact: Just go holler at your parents… now. Go!

Céline Dion – “Ashes” (Video)

A great mixture of stirring song and silliness… that’s how we fit a Céline Dion track (“Ashes”) onto the “Deadpool 2 Motion Picture Soundtrack.” In case you were wondering. Watch the video above and see exactly what we mean. Can’t be sure if the high-heeled Deadpool was something to at least politely giggle at, but the end makes it all alright. Ha!

IDK -“Lil Arrogant” feat. Joey Bada$$ x Russ

BAAAARRRZ dammit!! Rap lyrics matter. And getting these emcees together showcases punchlines hitting like they’re throwing ‘punches in bunches’ in the ring. Banger!

(It’s okay if they come across as a “Lil Arrogant” … since they really are that dope.)
