Max I Million does the remixes so lovely! His “Perfect Timing” redux is the perfect case in point. C.L. Smooth – with co-rhymer Skyzoo and DJ Devastate cutting the hell up – most def bless and rep on here.
It’s like Cudi was just scatting to some miscellany in the studio – vibing – and a beat got built up around it. Natural organic feel to the “All In” beat by Mike Will Made It. Decent. Apparently there is more to come.
Just the beginning 😉
– Kid Cudi
I can hype man myself. You don’t hear my sh!t?
– Styles P
The beat beef continues between The Ghost and these tracks maaaan. SP do ’em dirty! Gully level Hip-Hop done in the best way. Another in a what has become a long line of looseys from The LOX lyricist. On this, “Ghost Don’t” leave any doubt about the skills!
Own that track K.R.I.T.! The Mississippian goes in realer than real on his version of Yeezy’s “30 Hours” … calling it “$30” … but we’ll call it that pure uncut DOPE!
Losing friends over bread, that’s a different loss… Let me pay back what I owe.
– Big K.R.I.T.
Latest greatest release from the lost LP (“The Diary”) from the late great J Dilla. This one’s “The Sickness” (produced by Madlib). Aptly named, you’ll agree, with Nas going ill on the track like that.
Besides having a cool name Billzegypt has a lovely voice and she displays it with her new track “Bring it Back”. This is a collaborative effort with Iman Omari who also produced the song. This is the first release from Billzegypt new project The Billy Blues on Vibe Music Collective label. Take a listen I have a feeling that her sound will Bring you Back for more!
One shot. Now she telling me that she in love!
– Wiz Khalifa
Tabi and Wizi on a beat by Double 0 yo! That’s what it is. “Bang Bang” is that feel good music. Click play and clique up… good party groove (whether your party is for 22 or 2)!
I’m watching Scarface, living all the good scenes…
Still unexpectedly sweet the way Wiz is with his kid (WizKid, hmmm… lock that name in Dad). This video features that… AFTER Khalifa kushes out on the balcony with the homie. Check out 3-year-old Sebastian Khalifa and Daddy Wiz hanging out in this video for “Zoney” – off the “Khalifa” album (out now).
Hey yo Pinero, can you do a li’l something over the “Permission” instrumental from Ro James? Oh you done that and deaded that already?
I’m hilarious. Name ring bells like a phone line carrier’s.
– Styles P
Ah. Dope work. Very! Word, Son. Worrrd!
This instrumental (“No Sugar No Cream”) is the first strong, smooth sip of “The Odd Tape” served up by Oddisee. Due out May 13, 2016, but if you want to lock in your fresh copy today, ain’t nothing to it but to do it… um… click it… the link below that is.
(Okay. Maybe I got Saturday cartoons on the brain. But is Oddisee peppering in ‘Yugioh’ quick snips in this? ‘Cause that’s what it sounds like. Wild!)
Bam Bam! Yep, Swizz went with a variation of the always-winning-in-Hip-Hop Sister Nancy sample for his chant-Hop jawn “Represent Tonight.” Listen to that party chatter over the infectious loop-beat. Classic shoulder bounce Beatz music. Get into it!
Robert Glasper delivers the loveliest “Violets” (produced by 9th Wonder); off his tribute album released in commemoration of the late great Miles Davis’ upcoming birthday.
The album blends a diverse group of master takes and outtakes from across Miles’ incredible tenure with Columbia Records (1955-1985) with original reinterpretations of songs by Davis. From the obvious (riffs and passages within the catalog) to the obscure (samples of Miles’ in-studio instructions spoken after false starts), Glasper has built something unique but still unquestionably Miles.
Playing this, it sounds just like you’d expect “Gangsta Boogie” to sound. Snoop & Kokane do the right things lacing this special J Dilla track. And make no mistake, all of the late great Dilla’s tracks are special. But this one, just that much more so because it is off “The Diary.”
The Estate of James Yancey has revived J Dilla’s longstanding company PayJay as a functioning imprint to release Dilla’s long lost vocal album, “The Diary” on April 15th, in conjunction with Mass Appeal Records. Initially intended for release in 2002, “The Diary” is the final batch of unissued material that Dilla had assembled for release during his lifetime.
This close… thiiiiis close to calling this a ‘mashtape’ – as in a mashup of ATCQ and Outkast tracks. Whatever it’s called, this Nappy DJ Needles mix definitely has something to say. If it were up to us, it’d say #SpeakLifeToPhife
A timely tribute to two of Hip-Hop’s greatest families – Dayglow meets Dungeon. Too bad that actual Tribe and Outkast project Andre 3K spoke of at Phife’s farewell ceremony never came to be. But heads do have this. Enjoy.
Dopeness! Yessir. Took the dope audio to video. No brainer that a video for Joe, Remy and Montana’s “All The Way Up” (that we posted earlier on here) was coming. So, here it is for the watching.
