Stro Elliot – “A 01 The Summer Love Song”

House Shoes shares are the dopest. Gotta love when a DJ does the real duty of hipping the masses to the Mos’ Def (once your hear Yasiin in there, you’ll get that) tracks that might otherwise slip by us. Beautiful booming banger of a “Summer Love Song” with the promise of more on the way from Stro Elliot.

In the midst of all the hate in the world,
I felt like sharing some LOVE.
The first leak from Stro Elliot’s self-titled debut LP on Street Corner Music, coming this fall.
Big shouts to the homie DJ LowKey from Denver for looking out.

Swizz Beatz – “Sad News” feat. Scarface

It’s not about the flag. Change the people.
Scarface

Think: Do you think Swizz Beatz and Scarface had this “Sad News” jawn already recorded, or did they hit the studio right fast in light of a recent tragedy? Don’t answer that aloud.

Think: Do you think it really matters with all that’s ging on? Don’t answer that aloud either.

Just listen. Think. Feel.

No big I’s. No little U’s. We all together.

Listen to “Wake.”

I guess this is what I gotta do to make y’all rap.

Say ‘NO’ to bullying. On the job, at school, anywhere in life. More than a ‘new cool’ way to be; consider it health advice. Listen in to Bodega Brovas and Jean Grae telling y’all how bad it can go down if you don’t follow that advice.

Tough day on the job? Punks stressing you at school? Kill everybody……With Kindness?

Joe Budden – “Making A Murderer” (Part 1) [Prod. By araabMUZIK]

The shottas heard round the world wide web. This “Making A Murderer” (produced by araabMUZIK) is labeled Part 1 there is a Part 2 coming. Like this shot by Budden is the spark to finally get Drake fired up enough to fire back. We shall see, but either way there is some grown man in-yo-face dissing on this track. Direct. No subtle talk. Listen (or listen again)!

Dumbfoundead – “Safe” (Video)

Shots fired. I’mmo reload!
Dumbfounded

In a word: Wow! OkayPlayer gets the credit for spotlighting Dumbfoundead. The Korean-American emcee takes to the mic (and above visual) to call Hollywood on [more of] its bullsh!t. We heard about the ‘lack of Black’ at The Oscars. But dude pointed out that the most ‘Yellow’ you saw then was the award statue.

BURN! Hollywood burn!

After the last Academy Awards and the regular whitewashing of Hollywood roles, I wrote this song and made this video to add my piece to the conversation. If you have any experiences or stories about this issue join the discussion at https://www.facebook.com/dumbfoundead/

You can actually get this single at iTunes.

Marvelous Mag – “Sade” (Letters From A Hethen) [Prod. By Madlib]

Marvelous continues his love-for-Women tributes as he drops this Madlib-produced track entitled “Sade” aka Letters From A Hethen. This is the smooth jazzy like sound that we’ve come accustomed to hear from Mr. Marvelous. The song explains what guys want to say to their lady when she’s upset and not understanding that he is not a normal Man and is doing what he can to be a gentleman and a street dude. He jumps on this unreleased Madlib track like the 2 were in the studio together and the beat was made for him. So sit back relax and listen to the sounds of Mr. Marvelous.
