Dirt Disciples – “Hologram” (Prod. By DJ Concept)

It has been said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Now, I don’t know if New York’s Dirt Disciples (Rome Clientel & DJ Concept) hung out tough with KXNG Crooked, Prodigy, Nature, Reek Da Villian or any of the other dope cats that made the “Opportunity Knox” LP this time around for Volume 3. But this DJ Concept beat though, there’s proof of one above-average producer doing work for a helluva emcee! Hell, their “Hologram” contribution to the project might make Dirt Disciples part of the others’ five.

The Roots – “Bittersweet”

You cannot just turn a concept for a commercial jingle over to The World’s Greatest Late Night Band… the standard bearers for Hip-Hop with instrumentation… and think you will just get a 30-second clip. No. And Stella Artois had to know that. A promotional song so strong it can stand as a single alone. Check out The Roots with their “Bittersweet” jawn.

What does a sound taste like? Experience “Bittersweet” by The Roots, the first ever song you can taste. Based upon scientific research that explores the relationship between our senses, one side has been written to bring out the sweeter flavors in a Stella Artois, while the other enhances the bitter notes. Can you taste the difference?

Dave East – “Bag”

Dave-East-Bag-CDQ-mp3-download

Even when incorporating that sing-songy Shaggy draggy element in his scheme, Dave East still stays true with the lyricism and boom bap. Exhibit next, his “Bag.” Money! Like pulling up in the Range Ro’ and putting hands on the bankroll.

(This single is on the soundtrack for “The Land,” in case you are interested.)

REKS – “Kites” (Prod. By Alchemist)

With “Kites” REKS bears his soul in the form of two passionate letters to individuals – one to Mumia Abu-Jamal (the activist and author who was imprisoned for the 1981 killing of police officer Daniel Faulkner) and another to Dylan Roof (the terrorist who executed nine people during a prayer service in South Carolina on June 17, 2015). Black Lives, Blue Lives, All Lives Matter. But the relationship between police officers and citizens will remain rocky until we dig deep enough to get to the root of the issue and improve the foundation. First, the U.S. has a history of brutalizing and incarcerating Black men without just cause. Second, police officers have a profoundly difficult job, but they also need to be held accountable for their actions. Third, individuals like Dylan Roof will continue to exist so long as revisionist’s history repeatedly poisons youthful minds with ideas that claim Black equality while still promoting White supremacy. It follows that reversing historic the mode of mistreatment of Black people in the U.S., especially in cases of bad police interactions, AND acting to root out Roof-like individuals and arresting their deadly behaviors is key.

(Beat by Alchemist.)
