Ok, calling this track a remix is probably giving it too much credit. It’s just JJ DOOM’s “Rhymin’ Slang” with some strange synth nonsense in the background. But the video…
Remember that amazing video for “Guv’nor” from a few months back? Imagine if someone vomited After Effect filters all over it. This is the result.
If you’ve got a slight feeling that you might be epileptic, you might want to skip this one.
First single from Awon & Kameleon Beats newest album, and this is a good one. I got a chance to listen to the unfinished version of the project earlier, and I can say for sure that this is going to be a good one. There is a really clear evolution in the sound from Kameleon Beats, especially sample wise, and Awon as always is a great story teller.
The one album I’ve really been waiting for since first hearing about it back in the spring. This album sounds great, and shows an evolution from some of the earlier work of Freddie Joachim. This is more than anything a soulful r&b album, consisting of some great production and great vocalists like Mar, Lauren Santiago and more.
Sometimes it’s just way too hard to keep up with the amount of music that comes out these days, this album from The Black Opera, released on quite possibly one of the best hip-hop labels in Mello Music Group, is a perfect example of that. I saw a few things about The Black Opera, but I had no idea about this album, or their previous two installments in this series either. Even after the discovery, I can’t say much about the other two albums, but this last one is great. It is a sprawling concept album effort, that has some poignant rhymes and great production. This is one album I would highly recommend purchasing.
From first hearing Breezy Lovejoy on HNGRY from the Cafeteria Line, I was hooked by his voice, whether he was rhyming and/or singing. The production on this is also handled by Breezy Lovejoy on most of the tracks, and it really creates the right mixture of a combination of hip-hop, soul and funk.
Can’t say I’ve listened to Joey Bada$$ before this, but I will definitely be checking his work out after hearing this live rendition of the Freddie Joachim produced Waves performed by the legendary Roots crew.
Visuals from Akin Yai’s Nomadic which came out a couple months ago. A little bit of a different track than you might expect, especially if you are familiar with CYNE, but it’s a fun video and good funky song.
Another video from Shad’s melancholy and infinite shadness EP. This is a weird video, a little bit eccentric, but it features the Shad that we have come to love.
