Joe Budden flow got this… with that smoldering heat! “Devil In My Room” (featuring Crooked I) is a wicked smooth boom-boom-bap track produced by Darknight & 8Bars. FREE loosie (unattached to an upcoming project) for the SlaughterHouse hopeful faithful.
It’s the ATL horror story to whack emcees… Jarren-iggy-errr-BENTON making it hot all #BlackOctober – dropping a new joint every week in October. Yeah, and the first one is “Alladat.” FREE download for this Kato-produced track. Get that now below.

Trash talk rhyming at its finest. In advance of the big bout Cassidy has with Dizaster (December 6, 2014), “Mr. Chicken” drops; like an overhand right at a pre-fight press conference. You know it’s good. Go ‘head and hit play, so you can hear Cass hit Diz with combo-disses. FREE download below.

Hot. Hot on the heels of the hot-off-the-press post of the “Try Me” (BeEVERYWHERE Mix) single from Sean Falyon and Dej Loaf; produced by DDS. Here’s the visuals for you.
Oh yessir. Boston’s own Singapore Kane ain’t noooo joke on this “Torch N Burn” (featuring Big Shug). Track produced by Marco Polo. You can hear the influence of the late great Guru and Big Shug of GangStarr Foundation on S Kane’s style. This leak is off Singapore’s forthcoming project “Waves N Shades” which also features the likes of REKS and NBS.
A list of dreams that ends with “strippers would get their birthday off” and “I’d have my own Gangsta Grillz mixtape” is an ATL bucket list like a mugg! Not to mention a dope way to start a FREE mixtape called “STN MTN” (before going in over that “Throw Them ‘Bows” beat)! Pretty damn dope. Childish Gambino with the score for this one.

“Have a cup of courage. Try to think of something to say…”
Never heard “Uptown Anthem” but she’s the Naughtiest…
Very dope! Fashawn leaks “Golden State of Mind” (featuring Dom Kennedy) well in advance of “The Ecology” (due out 2015). Production by Exile. Must be something else off that plate coming. We’ll see…
Latest heat rock from The Diam Piece (which you can get via earlier post here). Producer Diamond D (D.I.T.C. Crew) guaranteed a hit track with a solid instrumental and a loaded vocal lineup that features Talib Kweli, eLZhi and Skyzoo. Banger! Admit it. C’mon… “Where’s The Love” maaaannnn?
“Angela Davis” is the newness from Rah Digga rawwww! Cosign snip at the end by The Teacha KRS-ONE.
Y’all worry ’bout your stylist. Worry ’bout your talents… when did lyricism escape us?
– Rah Digga
Message! They gone learn today! You can listen hard for shots fired if you want. But since Rah is pretty above board with her shots (ehem… duck Iggy, duck down!), spend the next spin (yeah, you gonna play this at least twice) listening hard for truth! Plenty in this joint.
Entirely produced by Kev Brown and featuring his signature bassline-driven and raw, but soulful sound, “That Grit” consists of an intro, eight full-length tracks and six instrumentals. Hassaan and Kev share mic duties on most of the songs, inviting close friends/frequent collaborators Kaimbr, Toine, yU, Kenn Starr, Eye-Q, Asheru (of Unspoken Heard) as well as the Younger Soul Brother Grap Luva along as feature guests, turning the record into a true family affair.
Give it a play. You’ll like.
Well, yeah, it’s a FREE download but focus on the fact that it is good music (but at an unbeatable price, right?). Check out another offering from yU & Slimkat (together known as The 1978ers) on this “One Nine 7-T-8″ off the forthcoming “People Of Today” LP.
Okay, deep breaths. Twenty years is a long enough wait. So here goes: I have kept word of this personal project I have been working on from pretty much EVERYBODY (JayForce and my Beatz & Lyrics fam included); partly because it means so much to me but also because timing is crucial…for most everything!
This a reboot (e.g. redo, redux, reffixx mixtape… I actually call it a Rebooth) of the Group Home classic “Livin’ Proof.” Ever since this came out about 20 years ago, I have wondered what my favorite DJ Premier beats off that album would sound under verses from emcees I know and admire. Well, viola! Check out this work of love (TOTALLY FREE, of course) – The “Livin Proof” (Rebooth LP) from BoneBreaker Studios, featuring various artists over the original music by DJ Premier.
Check it out. Download and pass it on if you like. I LOVE IT (but then again, I’ve got 20 years of bias built up).
(What’s crazy is… several artists on the project – including the homie SkyBlew – were barely on the planet when Group Home dropped the original plate!)
Unity Sound was formed in 1996 in Tampa, Florida; before migrating to Atlanta, Georgia, where they opened a record shop in 1997. Making and placing mix CDs worldwide, traveling the world (Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, across the US)… that’s how they became known. Now, Unity Sound is based in Yokohama, Japan with Owner / MC / Selector Crossfire and MC / Selector Bigga-C. You can learn more about the Sound at their website (here). But learn about (and jam to) their beautiful blended sounds by steaming their “Royal Warriors 5″ (Culture Mix) above.
