Remy Ma – “ShETHER” (Nicki Minaj Diss)

So, Hip-Hop Nation, how was the weekend? Anything interesting go down. Any beef get flame-broiled? Hear anything pop off.

Just kidding. Here’s that “ShEther” dissing Nicki HARD over that Nas “ShETHER” instrumental. with Remy Shots heard ’round the world. Hell no. Remy with the sh!ts heard ’round the Hip-Hop world!!! A little slick Twit talk and THIS is the response??? WHEW! Do they REALLY want it with Remy Ma? Wonder what we’ll hear from Nicki though. And any ‘counter diss’ will NEED to be DIRECT. Subliminal is OVER! Remy called Nicki by name and went IN on her, her family, her exes, dragged in some associates…scorched the earth!

What now from Nicki? Spit back? Or maybe ‘buys over bars’ will be the response. Nicki does have big sales numbers. Really don’t think that is the way to respond here (Rem went there in the track already). Say everything or say nothing… just an opinion/prediction.

(Hit the jump for some of what is believed to have brought this on.)

Miguel – “2 Lovin U” (Prod. By DJ Premier)

Wowwww…DJ Premier is an executive producer of VH1’s “The Breaks” series AND he is scoring the entire series. BANGING!!

Oh, okay, this post is supposed to be about Miguel on the Preemo-produced “2 Lovin U” song. And how do we know it’s a track by Preemo? It’s the signature scratching baby. You hear those ‘damn’ samples scratched into the hook? Well, the rough, eventually shelved, early version of this song was called “Damned.” So, naturally, Preem scratched the ‘damn’ thing the f**k up like you know he do!

They decided to keep that element. Dope music was the result. Nice collaboration!

Oddisee – “NNGE” feat. Toine

Never Not Getting Enough is right! It is also the expanded title of “NNGE” from “The Iceberg” album being dropped by Oddisee… like TOMORROW! Certified banger with feature work from Toine on this jawn. Check out the liner notes, links (including a FREE single download and album pre-order), and an embedded stream below.

The prolific MC, producer and musician Oddisee’s new album ‘The Iceberg’ is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. His third release in just 12 months, ‘The Iceberg’ is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in Hip-Hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick r&b and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement. ‘The Iceberg’ is out February 24 on Mello Music Group.

Murs – “GBKW” (God Bless Kanye West) [Prod. By K-R.O.K.]

so God bless Kanye West
and every other brither of color that’s under stress
they wanna make you feel like you are less
even though you didn’t make it gotta deal with this mess
hold your head and always do your best
it’s a long race you gotta pace your steps
and remember that you are blessed
it’s because God loves that he puts us to the test

Dude.

Murs on a banging azz track IS therapy. So when you play him going in on this K-R.O.K. beat masterpiece, don’t be surprised if you holler out, “That’s IT!” Bump this on 12 and tell every DJ you know to put this on the waves and in their mixes. The (medicinal) dope we need. Verses speak deeply to ‘three different’ plots. Listen to Murs’ mic mastery above!

Diamond D – “Let The Music Talk” feat. Kev Brown (Kev Brown Remix)

Aaahhh, a new and proper way for a producer to leave his mark on a track. Instead of lacing the audio signature between the beats, or at the start or end, why not just jump on the damn track and rock the sh!t out of it like Kev Brown? Sounds smooth to us. Make it a trend, trendsetters! Respect Diamond D.

Smoke DZA – “Untitled” (Prod. By Ski Beatz)

Think “Untitled,” and two things you’d see a title on come to mind. D’Angelo’s classic; and that filename that comes up when you save something but you ain’t quite done working on it. Maybe that’s what Smoke DZA had in mind for this dope he left on the shelf. But naaaaah, son, this crack rock is cooked and well done!

This joint had been in the stash forever & I kept annoying DZA to drop it…finally he let me drop the sh!t on Cinematic Radio. If you haven’t peeped Don’t Smoke Rock listen to the album here sh!t is fuego.

O.C. – “Serious” (Prod. Gwop Sullivan)

Viacom got your brain on mute…

Damn right. O.C. came “Serious” with the rhyme demonstration this go ’round, because sh!t’s way beyond serious out here. Commenting on the state of the nation, politicians not doing a damned thing and the dumbed down music industry happily keeping us not giving a damn that they don’t. You can grab the whole “Same Moon Same Sun” project off the D.I.T.C. website.

Dope spit. And Gwop Sullivan must’ve taken a sh!t on it producing this banging azz track (’cause it is FUNKY)!
