House Shoes shares are the dopest. Gotta love when a DJ does the real duty of hipping the masses to the Mos’ Def (once your hear Yasiin in there, you’ll get that) tracks that might otherwise slip by us. Beautiful booming banger of a “Summer Love Song” with the promise of more on the way from Stro Elliot.
In the midst of all the hate in the world,
I felt like sharing some LOVE.
The first leak from Stro Elliot’s self-titled debut LP on Street Corner Music, coming this fall.
Big shouts to the homie DJ LowKey from Denver for looking out.

Phontigallo + Er Ro = Phonte + Eric Roberson = Tigallerro. Got it? Good! Like this music they are putting out together – good. The sorta self-titled project “Tigallerro” is due out July 22, 2016. But wasn’t it nice for them to let loose this single for now. “It’s So Easy” to please us true fans, right? Links below. Stream above.
It’s not about the flag. Change the people.
Think: Do you think Swizz Beatz and Scarface had this “Sad News” jawn already recorded, or did they hit the studio right fast in light of a recent tragedy? Don’t answer that aloud.
Think: Do you think it really matters with all that’s ging on? Don’t answer that aloud either.
Just listen. Think. Feel.
No big I’s. No little U’s. We all together.
– Swizz Beatz
The only thing we’re doing wrong is not fighting back.
Message music! Timely commentary over a top-notch beat by Q-Tip. Listen to Termanology and Saigon spit Hip-Hop perfection on this “We’re Both Wrong.”
Bishop Lamont – “Back Up Off Me” feat. Xzibit x Kaleb Simmonds (Prod. By Chris Noxx x Focus…) [Video]
Catch a cramp hitting the likes and thumbs up quick enough for this one. “Back Up Off Me” has the heat of a beef track, but the emcees trade verses and team and beat it down like they had bats. Produced by the homie Focus… (Eff Triple Dot!) and Chris Noxx. FREE download below. Dope visuals above.

Soon all urban dictionaries will be updated to show a pic of Joe Budden under the term ‘No Chill.’ Count on it. Barely a week is STILL too long to wait for a response from Drizzy on “Making A Murderer” (Part 1)… Sooooo, here’s another shot from the clip (or to the jaw, in keeping with the artwork). Listen to “Wake.”
I guess this is what I gotta do to make y’all rap.
A few weeks after the audio dropped, here goes the visual. Going just as hard! This is Nipsey Hussle – featuring Buddy – on “Status Symbol 2.” Production by Mike & Keys, DJ Khalil, Mars and Tariq Beats (with additional work from 1500 or Nothin’).
Another one from Joe Budden & araabMUZIK? Yep. They’ve collectivized as Rage & The Machine, and this “Flex” (featuring Fabolous and Tory Lanez) is the first single off their forthcoming collabo LP.
Fergie knows that sex sells… along with a catchy beat, clever-cute lyrics, hella sexy dancers dressing and working a winning concept (M.I.L.F.’s of all kinds = WINNING). Soak it in as Fergie soaks her mams in a milk bath for her “M.I.L.F. $” video.
Plus: Catch all the Eye Candy cameos. On top of the models and Fergie, it’s a Honey OVERLOAD! Whew!
Say ‘NO’ to bullying. On the job, at school, anywhere in life. More than a ‘new cool’ way to be; consider it health advice. Listen in to Bodega Brovas and Jean Grae telling y’all how bad it can go down if you don’t follow that advice.
Tough day on the job? Punks stressing you at school? Kill everybody……With Kindness?
“Meat Cleaver” beat by Picnictyme.
The shottas heard round the world wide web. This “Making A Murderer” (produced by araabMUZIK) is labeled Part 1 there is a Part 2 coming. Like this shot by Budden is the spark to finally get Drake fired up enough to fire back. We shall see, but either way there is some grown man in-yo-face dissing on this track. Direct. No subtle talk. Listen (or listen again)!
Banging with an extra order of dope sauce! Pause? Nah… press play maaaaan!
DJ Premier’s new artist phenom Torii Wolf delivers the video for the remix of her debut single, “1st” (featuring Dilated Peoples). Get the remix audio below via earlier post here.
Shots fired. I’mmo reload!
In a word: Wow! OkayPlayer gets the credit for spotlighting Dumbfoundead. The Korean-American emcee takes to the mic (and above visual) to call Hollywood on [more of] its bullsh!t. We heard about the ‘lack of Black’ at The Oscars. But dude pointed out that the most ‘Yellow’ you saw then was the award statue.
BURN! Hollywood burn!
After the last Academy Awards and the regular whitewashing of Hollywood roles, I wrote this song and made this video to add my piece to the conversation. If you have any experiences or stories about this issue join the discussion at https://www.facebook.com/dumbfoundead/
You can actually get this single at iTunes.
Marvelous continues his love-for-Women tributes as he drops this Madlib-produced track entitled “Sade” aka Letters From A Hethen. This is the smooth jazzy like sound that we’ve come accustomed to hear from Mr. Marvelous. The song explains what guys want to say to their lady when she’s upset and not understanding that he is not a normal Man and is doing what he can to be a gentleman and a street dude. He jumps on this unreleased Madlib track like the 2 were in the studio together and the beat was made for him. So sit back relax and listen to the sounds of Mr. Marvelous.
