Nice one, SoulBounce. Marvin Gaye’s classic “Sexual Healing” with a twist a la Studio Rio.
The remixed track is part of “Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection,” an innovative compilation of 12 classic songs from American artists such as Nina Simone, The Isley Brothers, Sly & the Family Stone, Bill Withers and many others reimagined as samba recordings. The entire album is full of melodic rhythms capturing the spirit and soul of Brazilian music. Press play on Studio Rio’s “Sexual Healing” for a sample of what “The Brazil Connection” is serving.
Got that iTunes link for “The Brazil Connection” for you below.
Formerly known as 1/2 of the rap group Blahzay Blahzay alongside DJ PF Cuttin, the emcee formerly known as ‘Outloud’ drops some new music under his new alias ‘Blahz’. It appears Blahz revisits the 1995 ‘Blahzay Blahzay’ classic ‘Danger’ with this new joint for 2014 called ‘OMG BKLYN’. Stream and grab a FREE download of this BK BLAHZ jawn now. Summer anthem for the borough set to blaze the Hip-Hop world.
There’s a race to define what the new Brooklyn sound is. “OMG BKLYN” the ‘new Brooklyn’ community an anthem to define that sound while keeping that authentic Brooklyn feel.
Featuring additional vocals from Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter. Produced by Avery ‘Avenue’ Chambliss. Mixed by PF Cuttin.
What it is is G.O.O.D. Music. A collab between Common and Big Sean called “Diamonds” seems right. A rare gem to be admired worldwide. A good look – and sound – though “Nobody’s Smiling” … the LP is dropping July 22, 2014.
What if Jordan chose right field?
Or Magic stayed faithful?
Be your own Label ain’t no telling where it take you…
TRUTH! The “Revelation 717″ project is due out soon. But Phene leaked “Set Me Free” anyway. This is that head noddin’ Hip-Hop that is too hot to handle… too cold to hold.
Kuniva (of D12). With Boldy James. With Guilty Simpson. With Jon Connor. Ridiculous flows over a dope azz beat. Ridiculous? Dope? Nah… THIS IS MICHIGAN!!! And these Michigan emcees serve pain on this “Michiganish” joint. Off Kuniva’s “History of Violence” full length (no release date yet).
Damn… this is some hella hard music here!
The Other Guys enlist Tanya Morgan (Von Pea and Donwill) for the latest single, “Blow My Mind,” off their debut album “Seeds of Ambition” (due out July 15, 2014). The album is forthcoming but available for pre-order now at iTunes; and you can get the single download now.
And now there’s a video. West west, yes yes. Souls and Snoop on the collab with “There Is Only Now” – getting a turbo boost for the buzz with these visuals. We posted on this S.O.M. title track and coming album here just recently.
There is very real potential for mayhem when you bring G.O.O.D. Music to the Slaughterhouse. Had to be said. And this CyHi The Prynce “Huey” (Remix) – with Royce Da 5’9″ and Joell Ortiz on it… by the time you give it a listen…you’ll be saying it had to be done. The original version – on the “Black Hystori Project” was no punk though. FREE download below!
Statik Selektah does it again with another banger! Showoff and Duck Down Music labels teaming to release “What Goes Around” (LP) to the teeming masses of Statik Selektah fans on August 19, 2014. But Stat Diddy went ahead and let “The Imperial” (featuring Action Bronson, Royce Da 5’9 and Black Thought) fall off the promo wagon. Pick it up below. This ill track got some quality spitters on this jawn. ‘Imperial’ is a perfect name for this joint right here. Superior lyricism & production. Dayaam! Be on the lookout for the new album ‘What Goes Around’ when it drops August 19th on Duck Down Records.
“What you project to the crowd, the crowd’ll project back. And if you need proof, my n!gga, look at Proof…”
This “Rhymes On Paper” speaks directly to the set of artists who are getting a bit too comfortable with blurring the line between keeping it real in the booth vs. out. Careful who you spit at, on or about in those rhymes folks. This single is off the “Astroblacked” LP (all tracks on which produced, arranged, mixed, mastered by Astronote). Linked below, visuals above.
Here is a little from “Red Magic” from AZ. Production by BabyPaul/BpZy and Beat Fanatik.
