RJ Payne – “The Autobiography Of Kobe Bryant” (R.I.P. Kobe And Gigi Bryant)

Even if you was a hater, you gotta give him respect…

Yeah. RJ Payne did that. Fresh off the news when this “The Autobiography Of Kobe Bryant.” dropped on PaperChaserDotCom. Dope tribute. Seems prophetic, too. Payne felt the Payne pain and shared it here. For the late great Hall Of Famer. Payne tried to to give Kobe his flowers when he was here to smell them. Regardless, RIP Kobe and Gigi Bryant.

RJ Payne recorded this tribute to Kobe Bryant several years ago, but it wasn’t widely released. “It’s new to the world,” Payne told me.

With today’s tragic news of the basketball legend and his 13-year old daughter, Gianna “Gigi” Bryant, dying in a helicopter crash it feels right to give it some light.

Major props to RJ Payne!

Jay Electronica – “A Written Testimony” (Album)

Okay. Here we go. The album we have waited on for over 10 years. Jay Electronica is a five-mic emcee, without a doubt. NO ONE is trying to see Jay on them barz, son! Maybe, not even that Jay (Hova). Hmmm…

Ten tracks for a 10-year wait. But was the wait worth it? We will see, and hear, as soon as we press play!

(I cheated. I already pressed play as I was writing. Some surprises in there, including a BIG one, but I will not spoil it for you. LISTEN!)

Buc$ – “Headz Or Tailz” (Pt. 2)

You spell it like Buc$, but you say it like Buc Dollar. Yup, the Tuscaloosa OG got himself one (and apparently, into one… a mess) with this installment of “Headz Or Tailz.” Dope storytelling on deck for Mr. Dollar. And if you are in ATL, you know some of those spots he’s calling out in here, and how it can go down in the A. But what was he doing over this way in the first place? Buc$ has his own A to worry about, Alabama.

Just listen. It will all come together. Or maybe it will start to fall apart; depending on your point of view! Off the “Neva Say Die” project (out now).

Dave East – “Really Wit Me” (Prod. Mike Kuz x Joe Joe Beats) [Video]

If I don’t know you, I don’t know you. I don’t feel strangers…

Dear label execs: Do not come at East with the wack-azz quarter-mill advance deal. That’s no money. Plus, he doesn’t know you to “trust you” like that (e.g. don’t feed him the “we can renegotiate” line either).

Besides, Dave doesn’t need the money or the trappings of wealth. What he NEEDS is to know the answer to his question: Who “Really Wit Me” (what we all really need to know for real)?

Benny The Butcher – “Did I” (Prod. By Fuse Of 808 Mafia x Black Metaphor)

Did The Butcher do something wrong? Not according to him. So why point a finger at him? Matter of fact, no need to answer. All these liars letting dude’s name fall out their mouths are gonna get the work!

(Hear him talking up that Jimmy Fallon performance? He did smash that. Guilty!)

Ras Kass x RJ Payne – “F.L.Y. Remix” (Prod. By Gensu Dean)

‘Out with the old. In with the new’… Okay, Ras Kass, then let’s go ahead and have RJ take his turn riding that track, with some new twists and turns thrown in. Gensu is a beat genius to boot; really touched this jawn up lovely! Dean brought the Payne to this Ras Kass & DJ Green Lantern jawn they dropped last year.

But you know what they say, “F.L.Y.” (F*ck Last Year)… This is the REMIX!

(Full disclosure: Ras dropped this remix right at the end of 2019. So, there’s that. Hahaaa!)

DJ Yogi – “Rainy Day March 2020 Soul Mix” (Mixtape)

What can a real DJ do with tracks from The Good Girls, Michael McDonald, Dwele, Tom Misch, Sola Rosa and more? Hmmm… Why don’t I let Yogi answer that with this funk-soul mix.

Conway The Machine – “Sign Language” (Prod. By Daringer)

Hip-Hop about to experience a climate shift.

It already is. The temperature is different out there in Buffalo. HOT! I mean, it’s still cold… and the BARZ are colder… but we are not gonna act like every time Conway spits he ain’t spitting pure FIRE! And he has a LOT of work out there.

That supreme sh!t talk Stone Cold Steve Austin was bringing to Iron Mike Tyson’s face in that audio clip at the end though. I remember seeing that live on TV back a good long while ago. Ended it with a double ‘one finger salute’ (“Sign Language” for real)! Maaaan, them Griselda dudes are some real rasslin’ fans #MeToo

They might salute you for your hunger
Then shoot you in the stomach after greeting you as ‘brother’

Yessir! Respek on the name Tha Soloist for the realest HARD BARZ!!! And if you followed happenings up to and beyond loss of Guru (of Gang Starr), then keep your head on a swivel while nodding to this jawn. Shots fired!

Jersey City (NJ, USA) stand up! And shout to Rob Dseize (pka @Dseize) for the track (that WORK… coming out of Sweden)!

Big Flip Papi – “U Really Luv This Life?”

About that life? Nah, eff that. Do “U Really Luv This Life?” Are you sure? Maybe you are, until you hear BFP speak truth on ‘that life’… and he is shouting out people who are people who are paying the price for living the life, taking the risks… AND he’s writing out the prescription for [trying] to stay ‘healthy’ when you are in the life.

Do you love what comes from being a hustler?
BFP takes you into his jail bids and what comes with the fast life.

Okay, let me spoil it: You gotta be INSANE if “U Really Luv This Life?”

This is one of those real talk joints. More so than the bars, lean in for the realness!

Off the “Bullpen Therapy” album (out now).

TRIBEZ x Maniac – “Fire” feat. AG x El Da Sensei x Pawz One

I took the long route, straight from my Mom’s couch. Now I’m global.

Maybe everyone doesn’t feel this way, but there is something extra special about a gang of thorough emcees swinging on a beast of a beat and beating it the f**k down!! Just like the way AG, El Da Sensei, and Pawz One “Fire” on this track with TRIBEZ.

From the “Paragon” project (out now).

Chika – “Industry Games”

If you dig around, you are gonna find out about this chick Chika; slick talking, esp. with the BARZ (and maybe with your girl, uh oh)! Far from ordinary with the tongue (tongue in cheek for real). Southern spitter from Alabama. Click play above and hear another example of how an emcee is supposed to swing a [yellow] hammer on a beat and make a hit!

Eto x Jai Black – “Bad Publicity” (Freestyle) [Prod. By Nottz]

The real shooter is the one shooting back.

Daaaayumm!

You know how you can even feel when real spitters get in their stance before they start rapping… before the barz start flowing?? Well, if you don’t pay attention from the tippy top of this hot shot. You can feel that the rap is gonna be top choice as the beat is building (banging beat all by itself, by the way)… then “yeah, unh-unh-unh, give ’em some”… and they DO!

Respek on the names Eto, Jai Black, and super producer Nottz for this “Bad Publicity” work!

G.Huff x Lena Jackson – “Another Dead Rapper” (Remix) feat. M.O.P. [Prod. By Statik Selektah]

I admit. I’m a little off balance. Challenged mentally.

Forever with the sh!ts. HOT sh!ts. M.O.P. jumped right into the fi-yaaaah (especially knowing that Statik Selektah was responsible for the track, I bet). Another “Another Dead Rapper” on arrival. Pronounced by G.Huff & Lena Jackson.

Royce Da 5’9 – “I Don’t Age”

Flyer than the sky, I am the pilot of the Soul Plane.

‘Product of the dope game,’ he says. Nah, mane… Royce is the dope game. BARZ so unmatched, in fact, it’s so not a game! I mean, this is just another reminder. Who want it with Da 5’9? Rhetorical. Whoever you are thinking, STOP thinking they do. Because they DO NOT!

His barz are timeless!! His legacy is sealed. I got the title before I even pressed play #FACT
