Still putting in the work. All I need is a hardhat!
Okay. Be it on blogs or bickering amongst yourselves, every head has had the ‘who ought to be on a Hip-Hop Mount Rushmore’ topic. Well, hold up. HOLD UP! Y’all haven’t heard the vets Capone n Noreaga make their case yet. Chisel their visages, along those of Nature and Cormega, into that imaginary mountain face. Then listen to this “Rap Rushmore” joint they put up for discussion.
Might change the whole conversation (yeah, dope like that)!
Beat by Hazardis Soundz. Cuts by Tony Touch.
It ought to be enough to tell you that this is Philly soul sung by a qualified professional. Strong music medicine. That was your warning. This “Forever Don’t Last” is the second single from Jazmine Sullivan’s forthcoming new album, “Reality Show.”
Get to listening and enjoying this fine Philadephian and Happy Sunday to ya.
Emcee yU and producer Slimkat (collectivized as The 1978ers) have that “People Of Today” LP coming (due out November 11, 2014). Don’t you worry. In fact, you can pre-order the the plate AND get a first taste of the project – a track called “A People’s Intro Act I” – by following the links below.
Interesting. Soulection and Stussy ‘let their powers combine’ on this mix project.
We’ve taken dozens of tracks into consideration to curate the finest selection of progressive music from around the world to bring visibility to the future sound. Because there is so much talent out there, it was challenging to pull this compilation together to showcase a progression and cohesive flow that reflects both Stussy and Soulection cultures respectively.
This is Zikomo with “Champion Riddim” off the “The Sound of Tomorrow” – a Soulection and Stussy compilation.
