Fatt Father spit that he “belongs in sickness-ville” on his “Unthinkable” joint… AGREED! Them flows are SICK, dude! I mean, beats from DRUGS (DRUGS…DRUGS…haaa) don’t hurt either. But this Detroit emcee is a lion of a lyricist, showing why he rules his jungle on this “Veterans Day” project (entirely produced by DRUGS).
(Salute to my folks at Bad Magics for hipping me to another heater!)
Salaam Remi, Amy Winehouse’s Main Producer, Speaks On Her Artistic Influence, Dying At 27 And More (Video)
Ohhhh! Amy Winehouse’s main producer was Salaam Remi? That’s one of Nas’ go-to producers. Wonder if that is what put them in contact (e.g. both working with and trusting Remi), allowing them to grow their friendship. Or was it that those two were friends… and one introduced the other to Salaam Remi.
Salaam Remi is one of the producers who worked heavily with the late Amy Winehouse. The producer discusses meeting Amy, and how they would come together to produce jazz music. He goes on to speak about her issues with love, her sense of humor and how that affected her music. Despite producing a majority of Amy’s work, Salaam reveals he did not get a Grammy alongside the songstress. Salaam talks, Amy’s legacy after the troubled singer died at just 27 years old.
Okay, so Skillz submitted his “Rap Up” for the year. Think Uncle Murda ain’t gonna check in with his?? Shiiid! Murda a fool with it. Hahaa. Grimy but funny in spots with the shots. Check out his “Rap Up 2016” below. Produced by Reefa & Teddy Da Don.
Who can get it for 2016? Well… ask The Game, Meek Mill, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Kaepernick, Brad Pitt and more… all in this jawn. It’s an annual tradition: Skillz tripping on the trip that we called 2016. Here’s the latest “Rap Up” from Skillz.
Ima go off. Ima go off right now.
Chuck Lawayne put down a gritty up-tempo beat and Lloyd Banks is like…Let’s GO! Street heat dropped as the next installment in his Blue Friday series.
Ha! This is fun! Busta Rhymes this “Grinch 2000” for the “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” soundtrack back in 2000. Even got a feature on it from the film’s star, Jim Carrey. Produced by DJ Premier to boot. So how could this have not made it onto the final release? Who knows? But now it gets dropped, and appreciated. Happy Holidays!
Hot from the shot, the late great J Dilla’s musical estate let off 15 from the heater in time for the holidays. “Jay Dee’s Ma Dukes Collection” is available now for streaming and purchase below.
Pretty mellow overall. Dope. Something feels ‘west coasty’ about this… maybe it’s the beat. Check out the J57 x G Koop Remix of DV Alia Khryst’s “Lights Out” (yeasted up by a feature from Redman).
Ah! “Mic – Rocosm” like a ‘microcosm’… The P from the M-O-B-B is killing it with the 10-dollar words, right? Case in point: The forthcoming project is entitled “Hegelian Dialectic” (The Book of Revelation). You can pre-order that via the iTunes link below and get the single now.
The energy on this is raw! Pap, Joe and Jaquae doing the work on this driving “Back On My Bullsh*t” track. No Remy on here, but Ma can rest easy knowing her man and her bro had this well-taken care of as far as flows.
Here we go… about to ‘bite downnnn’ again. Hahaaa! That “Lockjaw” from earlier this year from French Montana (featuring Kodak Black) was an admitted guilty pleasure. Maybe you were with it. You probably got with it by the third spin. This Montana x DJ Clue remix featuring Jeezy, Rozay, and DJ Khaled though… won’t take that long at all! Stream it below. Let’s go!
DJ Yogi has cheffed y’all up a quality blend of TI… Scarface… Quad City DJs, 69 Boyz & K-Nock… Aretha Franklin… Tears For Fears… Sade… Big Sean… and… and… some more! Is it Hip-Hop, Soul, Christmas, Gospel, Twerk, Bass music or what?? Well… YES!
The Brunch Mix goes all over the place like runny eggs.

This “Views From The Death Star” (prodduced by John The Third) is some of that off-center ‘ish that will catch my ear flying around in the Soundcloud. Check out New Orleans’ own Black Gandhiii. Not much online in the way of background/info on the artist. Self-described as…
A kid with an open mind. Who’s struggle defines him, also allowing him to create great music. Telling his story and the truth about life. Follow the movement and stay tuned…
The Hip-Hop D-Block anti-hero trio has been releasing serious heat for the street; always, but esp. as of late. A single here, another there. But ’nuff that! How about a whole plate? Well, glad you asked, because that’s what this is – the full album stream & link for “Filthy America… It’s Beautiful” by The LOX.
