Hmm. Catching that classic ‘Bonita Applebum’ vibe off this. Solid. “Freak Ya Heart Out” (featuring Illa J) is the first single from Moka Only’s album “Chicken Wingz” (out now). Linked the iTunes below for the copping whenever.
Already! Here are the visuals for that hot “I Just Wanna…” R&B jawn from Elijah Blake (featuring Dej Loaf). Overpowering sensuality running through this video presentation. Gonna be kinda hard not to fall in love with Dej Loaf though (fingers crossed on that promise…haa)!
Video for the song “It’s Okay” by Jack Preston directed by the W. Feagins Jr. Dope joint to say the least. Salute to the up-and-coming producer/emcee (from Atlanta, Georgia, USA) for this work off his forthcoming album, “End Of The Future.” FREE download of the single below.
ESPN and Hip-Hop go together and the relationship don’t stop. Word to Stuart Scott – RIP respect. A while back the sports network played Mobb Deep’s “Survival of the Fittest” as a backing to baseball clips during wildcard games (hit the jump for a sample). Well, turnabouts is part of the game. Here goes the Mobb dropping an ESPN Remix to their “Survival of the Fittest” on us.
This is a rebroadcast & now podcasted episode of Atlanta’s premier hip hop radio show that aired Saturday night 5/16/15 from 9pm-12midnight EST / 6pm-9pm PST on our various radio affiliates including Atlanta’s ABLRADIO. In addition to the quality uncut bangers played on the show this week, we also had a special guest interview with producer WLPWR (Yelawolf, Eminem, Slaughterhouse, Wiz Khalifa, BIG KRIT) of SupaHotBeats.
In addition to all the great new music that is spun, this week the team of Jayforce, Twice Born The God, & Odell speak with WLPWR on his origins coming up in the music business, fatherhood, production techniques, as well as working with Yelawolf, Eminem, Big KRIT, & many other artists in the in music industry. We also take the time in this week’s show to pay our respects to legendary blues artist B.B. King who passed away recently at the age of 89. B.B. King has collaborated with hip hop artists like Big KRIT & his music has also been reinterpreted & sampled by many of the best.
Gods’Illa is back… with their “Believe In Gods’Illa” LP (due out June 2, 2015). The trio’s 16-track album is that boom bap; that marriage of Beatz & Lyrics (shameless plug and pun) that appeals to heads worldwide. Follow the link below if you want to pre-order the LP and get this “ForestReal” single now. Check for Stic Man (of Dead Prez), Laz (of Clear Soul Forces), yU (of Diamond District) and other features.
Nice, nice, nice! You know that “Turn The Lights On” LP from Rico Love is dropping tomorrow, right? Nod your head like you know, because we linked the pre-order in one of the earlier Rico Love posts. Just in case, re-linked that below. This “Days Go By” might be the joint to push you into the buy line. Take a listen.
Drake, 40 and the OVO Crew show up in the visuals on the cameo love. Nice. And nice song. Meditative feel to it. This is Popcaan’s “Unruly Prayer” (produced By Dinearo).
To the artists on the grind (and those who love them): In this life, things won’t always go the way you want ‘em to go; but if you quit, they will go NOWHERE. You’ve got to hang in there and keep going if you ever hope to have a chance of getting there. Truth. To affirm this truth, and encourage, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Dayne Jordan drop a previously unreleased gem on the matter – “Harder.”
A treat we did and never put out…
– DJ Jazzy Jeff
Good word right on time. Feel that.
Wowwwwww! THAT’S how you take it back (us and Hip-Hop)! Thank you ladies. Y’all check out Lyric Jones and iLLCamille letting some uncommonly good verses flow over a smooth Jansport J track. Yeah, could’ve flipped that ‘uncommonly’ on that “I Used To Love Her” by Common… but you already expected that (oh wait, did it anyway). Maybe there’ll be a video. But for now, enjoy the FREE music – single and mixtape download linked below.
Nice bippety-boppity jazz from Black Milk’s 2013 album – “No Poison No Paradise” – entitled “Sonny Jr.” An incredible musical ride featuring Robert Glasper (on keyboard) and Dwele (on trumpet). Linked the single below (which will also allow you to get at the album, and thus, bonus tracks and all kinds of extras).
“Shadows & Diamonds” due out June 23, 2015. On it, you can get this heater. Elijah Blake singing some sultry, but Dej Loaf with the line in the beginning will make you ache… but you gotta ‘promise’ (won’t ruin the effect of your hearing it yourself). Play the Blake single “I Just Wanna…” (featuring Dej Loaf). Get it now AND pre-order “Shadows & Diamonds” via the link below if you feel that.
“I’m usually on tour, but now it’s time to move my pen; and get back to that street sh!t…”
– Sheek Louch
Sheek has “Silverback Gorilla 2″ dropping September 18, 2015. Got a li’l something on that after the jump. But before the full-length release, like now, you can get this FREE download and bang the shiiiiit outta iiiiit! “Hood Gone Love It“ and so will you.
DOWNLOAD: SHEEK LOUCH – HOOD GONE LOVE IT
Always love when a rapper leaves some room on the track at the end so the listener can envision or actually emcee a little bit. Welp… N.O.R.E. took Rhythmic American Poetic license on this one, adding his own verse to French Montana’s “Off The Rip.”
“You got that baby making, earth shaking, jaw breaking, no A/C with the windows down type of loving!”
– Raheem DeVaughn
Ohhhh! So THAT’S why Raheem ran up in the shower to get at his girl… with his hoodie still on. Haaaaaa! Shiiiid, get it in then playa. Just like the audio post a while ago beyond suggested, this joint is hot, hot, HOT! Visuals for the single “Temperature’s Rising” off the “Love, Sex, Passion” (out now).
This brand new joint called “Black Magic” from Atlanta singer & songwriter The-Dream has me hitting the repeat icon over & over again. This joint is certified dopeness from the ‘A Tribe Called Quest-Bonita Applebum’ drums to the actual songwriting itself. Mr. Terius Nash even delivers a rap verse late in the song that’s executed better than you average trap rapper on the mainstream radio waves. “Black Magic” is slated to appear on The-Dream’s upcoming EP called ‘Jewel’ which is the sequel to his current EP that’s out now called ‘Crown.’ I’m sure you get the picture that he’s creating with a full-length ‘Crown Jewel’ dropping on July 10th on Capitol Records. In the meantime you should do like me right now & just hit the repeat button on this ‘Black Magic’ joint. Superb Mr. Nash. Superb indeed.
