"Game Changer" by Saigon ft. Marsha Ambrosius

"Now all along they thinkin we do a song how we bang the girls, I said naw lil' nigga we bout to change the world/
And when I turned it in expecting a grin, they gave a nigga this look like 'never again'/
And I looked back at them like 'never again', I love all of you mother fuckers but just as some friends/
I can't do music if it ain't got a message within, I guess y'all can leave that up to the rest of them then/"
So K Brenton just showed me this song and was telling me he was thinkin of blogging it but the homie is getting jacked so I'm the guy to bring you that sick hip hop shit for the day. This song was awesome. I always wish more people heard songs like this because they think the industry is one way when it's really not. I got in an argument with someone saying I don't dislike mainstream music, mainstream is just what is popular. I don't like when the mainstream becomes taken over by people created by the industry. And I know about the industry doin that because of songs like this; others that pop into my head are "Just to be Different" by Joe Budden or "Industry is Punks"  by Tech N9ne. Songs explaining an artist realizing getting signed to a record label means they have to sacrifice their integrity and change who they are, ultimately leading them to abandon that path. Anyways, he kills the rhymes and message and Marsha Ambrosius provides a great chorus with a nostalgic feel from an earlier hip hop. Check it out.

"Oh My God, You Need to See This!" by Mac Lethal

"Every time I turn the television on/
I see another thing reminding me that everything is wrong/
I see news people interviewing 5 year old children/
not even 30 minutes after witnessing a killing/"

This video is pretty fucking cool. It starts off slow, with what seems to be an annoying guy having too much fun with his iPhone. But it quickly evolves into a catchy little beat with some BIG rhymes and tongue flippin skills lol. Mac Lethal is known for his creative YouTube videos, and once again his emceeing skills are crazier than you would expect just based on the setting. He talks about the way he sees this fucked up world these days, and absolutely murks it. Check this creative shit out!

"Familiar" by Classified ft. Mic Boyd & DJ IV

"Ain't nothin' like bass to put a smile on your face/
You can hear the 808 from a mile away/
And if you see the smoke blowin', then we're higher than planes/
Those Boyds and their childish ways/"

So the information surrounding Classified's next album has finally released. The self-titled album will be released on January 22nd, 2013. Fuckin right. The Eternal Cadence team has big hopes for 2013, expecting plenty of dope music to share with y'all! Anyways. I know we JUST posted a Classified video the other day, but this one was too dope to not post as well. The Boyd Bros. hop on this all-around hip hop beat with grimy drums, a cool guitar sample, and dope scratching provided by DJ IV. They both have pretty sick lyrics, and twist up a few lines and breaks from familiar old school songs. Check this shit son!

"One Last Thing (Blue Slide Park Anniversary Edition)" by Mac Miller

"I observe, asking what did he design, I see an artificial future for a digital mind/
Muhamed Ali, yea I'm him in his prime, just that normal kid in class who was sittin behind/
Didn't really pay attention though, spittin his rhymes, but now you see his car try gettin inside/
No.  Hell no... I wanna go back home." 
So I fell off the hype of Mac Miller for a while cuz once he started sipping that codeine I wasn't understanding his vision so much. I just didn't appreciate his music as much, it was still always hot stuff but it wasn't my taste. But I like to check up on his new shit cuz he's sick with the rhymes but this one video blew my mind. The first minute or so is a recap of some videos, reminiscing some of his projects over the past year but be patient. Once you see Mac standin in a field looking a little bit like John Lennon your in for a masterpiece. Mac brings some really introspective lyrics to an incredible beat which creates an ambience I can't get enough of. As if the instrumental wasn't heavy enough it continues to build into a faster and more throbbing structure which really feels like it's taking you on a journey. The psychadelic effects and imagery of the video also seem to thump and breathe along in perfect flux with the song. I feel this song is about Mac's struggle with fame, or atleast that's how I interpret some of what he says, particularly towards the end. Anyways, thought this was psychadelic and beautifully done. Check it out!

"Damage" by Krizz Kaliko ft. Snow Tha Product

"Now when I step in, these bitches that sittin, finna get the fuck up/
I'mma make them all get dead, I'm a Mexican wreckin', like a drunk in a truck/
When I say I'm the bested, its a statement no question, and I don't give a fuck/
You say that you fly, you whole bitch you a lie, if you comin' against me you shit outta luck/"
So here is the final project of the long awaited Strange Music and Snow tha Product collaboration. They both kill the lyrics and I particularly thought Snow bodied shit, even Kaliko haha. The whole battle set up was jokes but I would've had to been standing with Tech and Rittz on Snow's side. She was choppin really precisely with sick rhymes. Hence why I chose her for lyrics. It was cool seeing some of the Strange family hangin around in the video. I know I saw Kutt Calhoun and E40 in there, but there may be more. I'd feel pretty cool if I was Snow destroying bars and having the whole army of elite Strange muh fuckas rocking around me. Anyways check it out!

"On Top Of My Game" by Papoose ft. Mavado

"They say the devil's making us all hot in the flames/
Somebody tell me why is the law watching it rain/
More shots in my thang, more dots in my aim/
More rocks in my chain, on top I remain/"

It seems like it's been forever since Papoose first stated that "The Nacirema Dream" was soon to be released. Apparently, this song is from the long awaited CD, and even if it isn't I'm not gonna complain. Papoose proves once again that he is definitely on top of his game. I've been hoping for more music from him ever since I heard his "5 Fingers of Death" freestyle on Sway In The Morning. Anyways, if you like multi-syllable rhymes... this tracks for you!

"Inner Ninja" by Classified ft. David Myles

"Ayo, I've been high, and I've been real low/
I've been beaten and broken, but I healed though/
So many ups and downs, roughed up and clowned,
We all got problems, but we deal though/"

Awww yeah. It's a fucking beautiful day out here in Kitchener. The sun's shining, it's relatively warm out, and Classified decided to drop a video with some feel good music. I'm assuming that this is one of the featured singles from his upcoming, untitled album. He's already released the song, and a makeshift video with old kung-fu movie scenes. But this video kinda made me think Classified made this song for a general audience. There's kids in the video, and singing in the song. Dont get it twisted tho. On a hip-hop level, Classified still bodied this track. The rhymes are crazy, and the production is very well done. If you have yet to find your inner ninja, this will definitely help you expose it!

"Plant the Seed (What U Paid For)" by Saigon

"Everybody ballin' huh, everybody winnin', ain't nobody poor no more, everybody spendin'/
Naw we just caught in a world that we call pretending where pretend-to-be niggas been pretending from the beginning/
The minute women are sinnin' in a minute just listen to the infants, they morals becoming so inconsistent/
Lil' boy with his wrist split, lil' girl thinkin strippin' is a business, that's cuz their mother wasn't against it"
I don't bump Saigon that often cuz I have a little bit of a weirder taste but Brenton has one of his songs playin often enough that I know he's dope and really down to earth and just an all around good straight hip hop cat. This song kinda seems like one that's gonna pass by in a day or so without barely anyone taking notice when it was actually a very self conscious song. One that down the road people will look back and realize how much this song defined a generation that you can easily observe all around you if you take a second to be mindful. I don`t really know what else to say about this song, just kinda spoke to me in a way. Check it out, hope you enjoy.

"The Ill Mind of Koopa" by Chamillionaire

"The thought of the implication of that would be blasphemous, snatch the words out the mouth of whoever's vocab it is/
If that rapping is rap I'm unwrapping their packages, then I re-package it up just to show you what rapping is/
Competition, we should start a petition for every person that's still in a major label position/
Obvious that you idiots never paid for tuition, you switch up the definition, you calling that a musician?"
Awwwww shiitttt, the Chamilitary man has jumped on the instrumental for Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 and showed us his own ill mind. First off I was just happy to see Chamillionaire rocking a Hopsin instrumental, real recognize real you know what I'm sayin. Especially since I've seen Chamillionaire hooking up with Krizz Kaliko, Rittz, and Crooked I this past year just to name a few. But fuck! Chamillionaire came fuckin hard on this and destroyed the entire mainstream game of weak ass rappers in a very intelligent way. He didn't go out just making fun of em but broke down the whole situation of what these rappers are really doing in comparison to him. Some of this verse is straight fire though, Chamillionaire's got an ill mind too. A Hopsin and Chamilitary collab could be awesome in the future. Check it!

DMX Sings "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer"

Well it's finally December and I decided maybe I should spread a little bit of that Christmas cheer. Ahh what would we do without DMX in the rap game? Ripping christmas carols like a G and keeping all those pussy ass rappers from ruining em. The shit actually sounded dope once he started laying the beat on the table, Santa should get DMX to remix that shit for real so he can bang that in his sleigh. Would probably make Rudolph feel pretty G too.
