Sean Price – “Unorthodox P”

sea_ÅP

Sean Price with another quick hit it, get it, get ghost track called “Unorthodox P.” You might recognize the beat as Joey Bada$$ and DJ Premier’s. I’m sure it’s okay…or not… whatever. He gave Joey (his ‘lil bro from Pro Era‘) a shout in there; so cool.

SEAN PRICE – UNORTHODOX P

Sevyn-Streeter-nEXt-remix-ft-Kid-Ink-video-2

Styles, Sheik, and J-to-tha get their lyrics (and spirits, I bet) lifted by the presence of one sexy singer by the name of Sevyn Streeter on the track. “Remember” this one y’all. Nice… esp. for the Mary J snips dropped in there.

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 ft. Action Bronson x Royce Da 5’9 x Black Thought – “The Imperial”


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.

Astronote – “Rhymes On Paper” (Vivid) featuring Blu [Video]

“What you project to the crowd, the crowd’ll project back. And if you need proof, my n!gga, look at Proof…”
Blu

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.
