"Good Night" by Wax [Music Video]

"I'm the baddest of the bad, raddest of the rad/
I'm the worst nightmare that your dad has ever had/
Cuz your mom don't miss him, she low key diss him/
Cuz he taste my balls every time she kiss him/"
This video is awesome. Wax released this video today featuring a "live performance", but it ends up having some other shit goin' on in it too. As usual, he kills it and those drums sound sick.

"Serial Killers Vol. 1" by Xzibit, B-Real & Demrick [Mixtape Stream]

Happy Halloween! If you can't already feel the eery mood in the air, Xzibit, B-Real & Demrick are here to supply it. The collaboration of the 3 emcees forms the group Serial Killers, and this self-titled project is their first. It features some joints produced by ILL BILL, C-Lance, Green Lantern, Statik Selektah, and features verses from Jon Connor, Hopsin, Kurupt & a couple others. Check it.

"The Underworld" by Reel Wolf ft. Apathy, Bizarre, Celph Titled, PMD & Sean Strange (of The Goondox), ILL Bill, King Gordy, Reef the Lost Cauze, SID (of metal band Slipknot), Slaine, Swifty Mcvay, Tech N9ne & Vinnie Paz

"It's kill or be killed, so watch out for the villain, he's ill/
I'm slinging raps, swinging bats like I'm in little league still/
Sniffin cocaine off a coin with Kennedy's grill/
Cough from a joint, but I'm crushin' my enemy's will/"

Can't say I'm a fan of every verse in this track. But a lot of it is pretty dope. I'm pretty sure Reel Wolf is a video production group who does work for a lot of the people in this video. They released this video which presents a bunch of dope underground artists. Somethin' worth checkin' if you like raw underground hip hop.

Rap Is Outta Control Freestyle by Ransom

"This money's makin me devilish, you can tell that I live this/
Since money's the root of evil, I went through hell to get it/
I swear it smells exquisite/
Revenge is served cold because my cell was frigid, got no mail and visits/"

The other night on Twitter, Vinnie Paz had a Q&A with his fans to celebrate his latest release. One of the fans asked him if there's any artists he'd like to work with, and he named Ransom. If you listen to this freestyle, you begin to understand why. They both have the talent to compile multi-syllable rhymes and they both like to vividly paint you a chaotic picture through their lyrics. Ransom's definitely underrated cuz he's got bars for days. Check it.

"Public School" by Tech N9ne

"A lot of truancy cuz they couldn't influence me/
to fluently spew it, but you couldn't do it congruently/
So I learned culture, rock music, rockin while I rock out that coca/,
Pac on my poster!"

Here's a new cut from Tech's upcoming Therapy EP. This one's gotta blend of heavy metal music, rap lyrics and Krizz Kaliko. This is way different from Tech's usual work, but the music still sounds good. I'm not sure if those lyrics are one hundred percent but I think I did a pretty good job. Check it.

"Remixxes" by Redman [Mixtape Stream]

Redman dropped this mixtape today entitled "Remixxes". It features a bunch of remixes over beats by artists such as Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Kanye West, Game, Dead Prez, and a few more. Check it!

"Omerta" by The Godfathers (Kool G Rap x Necro)

"Tucked chromy in the tuxedo, tussle lonely/
Like fuck any tough Tony, plus his homies/
Thug hobby, clown you, Bobby Brown, tenderoni/
Leave ya mom's head in ya bed, we don't touch ponies/"

Here's a new track from Kool G Rap and Necro, who are now The Godfathers. They're collaborating to release an album on November 19 entitled "Once Upon A Crime". I don't really like Necro's verses, but the beat's sick and he probably produced it. Kool G Rap's verses were sick too so I decided to post it anyway. Check it.

"Sam Peckinpah" by RA the Rugged Man ft. Vinnie Paz & Sadat X [Music Video]

"Designed frequency, I'm a holy divine lyrical deity/
Even atheists and heathens and non-believers believe in me/
The punk ass devil was born soft, I'll piledrive him like Paul Orndorff/
Steal his pitchfork and rip his horns off, I'm the born force/"

RA the Rugged Man just released the video for one of my favourite tracks from Legends Never Die, "Sam Peckinpah". Vinnie and Sadat X had to bring their talent and their suits for this shit as they try to re-create a setting of the past. Check it.

"Not for Nothing" by Koncept [Music Video]

"Now re-route it, speed through it a flat fare/
Imagine just alone what has changed in the past year/
Could look but I'll never see the heart that I find in you/
This food never tastes like the plate in my dining room/"

Here's some more new shit from Koncept. This track's fucking sick. The video, the beat and the verses are all done really well. Sounds like some venting being done over the Numonics produced beat. This joint's from Koncept's new "Live On" EP which was released yesterday. Check it.

"Is Happiness Just A Word?" by Vinnie Paz ft. Yes Alexander [Music Video]

"I'm watching life as a spectator/
I can't help myself even thought I possess data/
It's not a part of my spirit to wanna test nature/
You think you know what I'm feeling cousin, then let's wager/"

Boxcutter Pazie has feelings too. This song's deep. I really like when Vinnie makes deep songs like this one. He's good at choosing beats and finding a proper singer for the chorus. Not sure if I personally like this Yes Alexander bitch's voice, but it does suit the beat well. Either way this song's pretty sick, and schools you on the symptoms of a disorder that you may not be familiar with. This is from Vinnie Paz's upcoming Carry on Tradition EP which drops exactly one week from today.

"Hop is Back" by Hopsin [Music Video]

"Don't think you raw just cuz you got success/
I'll uppercut you're ass so many times you'll look like you was nodding yes/
I'm the only child that my mom regrets, probly best/
That you don't buy my album, save your money yo, do not invest/"

It's finally here. An official music video to boost the hype before Hopsin releases Knock Madness on November 26. The video quality's pretty sick for this, and you can tell a lot of effort went into it. I dunno if I like the chorus, it sounds too much like that Funk Volume 2013 track, but whatever. He takes shots at some popular artists as well and impersonated one of em pretty good. Classic Hopsin. Check it.

"Wings" by Koncept ft. J57

"If you see a bag of weed on the floor what the fuck you gon do?
(Pick it up, Pick it up)
And if you don't know the answer to that question muhfucka what the fuck I'm gon do?
(Fuck you up, fuck you up)"

New Koncept track dropped a few days ago featuring J57. As always these guys picked a dope beat to both murder. Not sure if this is from a project or not but its definitely worth a listen!

"Against All Odds" by Crooked I

"You can hear my lifes pain in the way I spit/
Think I give a fuck if a DJ play my shit?/
Or like my shit, put it in the club, hype my shit/
I write my shit, real niggas recite my shit/"

Crooked I just dropped this track, following up after he murdered his verse for the BET Cyphers. This one's gotta smooth west coast sounding beat, and Crooked kills it as usual, check it.

"Tie Breaker" by Naturally Born Strangers [Rich Kidd, Adam Bomb & Tona]

"Painting of her idol on her bedroom wall/
Got her thinkin' bout her nephew Paul/
His health problems, a scholarship to college she could get through ball/
But coach says she's just too small/"

Awww yeah. Some dope Canadian shit right here. Rich Kidd, Tona & Adam Bomb are three emcees from Toronto who've joined forces to create "Naturally Born Strangers". They're collaborating to make a self-titled project which will be released on October 30. Not sure if this is from the project, but I thought the Rich Kidd production was sick, and the verses had some cool storytelling going on. Adam Bomb is such a good writer. Check it.

"Feels Good" by Wax [Music Video]

"I know talented musicians on the ground floor/
Lookin up at me like 'what the fuck you feeling down for?'/
How come compared to smiling you always frown more/
Pussy I'm at UPS workin, wearing these brown shorts/"

The title of this song describes what it's like to listen to. It's got an uplifting beat and Wax kills it as usual. The catchy hook makes the song complete, and after murking that BET cypher, this video is perfect to re-establish why he was there in the first place. Sick track, check it.

BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher ft. Slaughterhouse

Here's another crazy cypher from the BET Hip Hop Awards. These guys are always on point and they didn't slow down for this performance at all. Check it.

BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher ft. Jon Connor, Rittz, Wax, Rapsody & Emis Killa

I didn't watch the BET Hip Hop Awards because I checked all of the nominees for all of the categories and decided it probably wouldn't interest me. But some of these cyphers are dope. This is just one that I liked, but you can click here if you'd like to check out the other ones. I thought Wax, Rittz and Jon Connor killed this shit. Check it.

"The Danger" by Stu Bangas & Esoteric ft. Celph Titled, Vinnie Paz & Apathy [Music Video]

"Cut out the racket, you're ratchet, I'll beat you ragged/
I'm a rabid dungeon dragon that's drooling battery acid/
I'm ravenous, Ap is savage, my raps are the most blasphemous/
Black magic, or Black Sabbath singing bible passages/"

This beat is a fuckin grimy one. I really like the main sample, and they added a really powerful Breaking Bad sample which fits extremely well with the beat. They all had some sick verse to lay over it as well, and Vinnie added a dope chorus. This is the first track from Esoteric & Stu Bangas' November 26 release, "Machete Mode".

"Rap God" by Eminem

"So you be Thor, and I'll be Odin, you rodent, I'm omnipotent/
Let off the nine, reloadin' immediately with these bombs I'm totin'/
And I should not be woken, I'm the walking dead, but I'm just a talking head, a zombie floatin'/
But I got ya Mom deepthroatin!/"

Alright so this track makes things interesting after the two previous MMLP2 releases. I didn't like Berzerk, and Survival was alright but I wasn't feelin' the beat. After a few listens, I think this new Rap God track is better than both. There's still a few weird parts, but man... Eminem's delivery in this shit is dope. A lot of sick rhymes in there, and it sounds more like what Eminem's music should sound like in 2013. But yea, the title of this song speaks for itself. Check it.

"Hollywood" by Game ft. Scarface

"Guns in both hands, fiends smoking' rock outta Coke cans/
Seduced by that white girl, Marylin Monroe-mance/
You see the city right, you got some weed and a molly? good/
Now take your bitch ass to Hollywood/"

Game dropped a new project outta nowhere, entitled "OKE". This is a bonus track from the project which features Scarface. I like the mellow beat, and they both had some sick verses. Check it.

"Legends Never Die" by Xzibit & B Real ft. Ea$y Money

"I do it for the one's who supported the dream/
And livin' every second of their lives as a part of my team/
It took the heart of a lion, the crown of a king, the ring of a don/
To keep the reign alive when you sing em a song/"

Another track by the Serial Killers, minus that Demrick dude. This one's gotta mellow radio sound to it. It seems kinda off but I don't mind it at all. The Serial Killers self titled project releases on Halloween. Check it.

"Some Things Never Change" by Chamillionaire

"Them broke dreams, them hoop dreams are just hope dreams/
That's the way that I look at y'all when y'all talk to me like y'all know things/
Weaklings like dope fiends, that'll lie and tell ya they'll go clean/
Don't really look like they eatin' great but they tellin' y'all that that's protein/"

Chamillionaire dropped another track today, and it's dope as hell. This is such a smooth song but he keeps it intense through his verses. Songs like this are what make me a Chamillionaire fan. Check it.

"Hiccup" by Tech N9ne [Link to Stream]

1. "The Ghost (Therapy Skit One)"
2. "Public School (featuring Krizz Kaliko)"
3. "Head Now (featuring Bernz & Wrekonize)"
4. "Hiccup"
5. "Therapy Skit Two"
6. "Shame on Me (featuring Caroline Dupuy Heerwagen)"
7. "Jacob Wells Message (skit)"
8. "When Demons Come (featuring Tyler Lyon)"
9. "Therapy Skit Three"
10. "I.L.L."
11. "Stop the Sailor"

Remember, remember, the 5th of November. This November's gonna be sick. Releases from Eminem, Hopsin and Tech N9ne. This Tech project's probably gonna stand out, just for what it is. "Therapy" is a full rock/rap EP produced by Ross Robinson, who's worked with the likes of Korn, Slipknot and Limp Bizkit. It might be weird, but it'll be interesting to hear regardless. I don't have a way to stream this "Hiccup" track, but I have the link. It's the first song revealed from the upcoming EP, and is featured on Rolling Stone.

"We Turned Out Alright" by Dizzy Wright ft. Wyclef Jean [Music Video]

"One method, I wake and bake before breakfast/
So hectic, the media be so reckless/

Try to bring the peace and leave the drama where you left it/
Say you keep it real, then why stress it?/"

Some new visuals from a Golden Age track, featuring and produced by Wyclef Jean. It's gotta cool vibe to it and the verses were pretty sick. Check out Dizzy Wright's latest mixtape, "The Golden Age".

"Heart Attack" by Kool G Rap & Necro (The Godfathers) [Music Video]

"KGR, Necro, we comin through this bitch/
Come flyin through the strip like you the shit/
Get lost like a plane out of tower range that flew through Bermuda mist/
Walk around in the ghetto, metal heavy as ??? is/"

Another new alliance in hip hop is the collaboration of Kool G Rap & Necro. This is the first track I've heard from them as The Godfathers, and it's not bad. Necro seems to be working with his influences lately. The last video I seen by him was a track he did with DMC. The Godfathers have an album coming out on November 19 which is entitled "Once Upon A Crime".

"1996" by Ransom [Music Video]

"You know the script, was freezing when it was cold as shit/
Winter time, stayed with a runny nose cuz my coat was ripped/
And niggas noticed it, said I was poor as hell/
That's what I rap with such vision, cuz I got more to tell/"

Ransom just released this video for a track from his recently released project with Statik Selektah, "The Proposal". Check the album out on iTunes.

"Thank God" by Krizz Kaliko [Music Video]

"Seem like we saving the rap from the pay per plays in the back/
When the paper stays in the sack/
You hear what they play on the airwaves, Strange'll say that it's wack/
Till we save Earth from that/"

This shit's sick lol. Krizz Kaliko's smooth singing allows him to keep his music really diverse. So every time he drops a record, I'm never sure what to expect. Same shit happened with this song, and he was killin his rapping parts. This song's from his recently released album, "Son of Sam". Check it.

"Serial Killers" by Xzibit, Demrick & B Real [Music Video]

"Never had gratitude, young and jaded/
And I guess that's why my M.O. was drunk and faded/
The way I got here is so complicated/
From way back in the day I felt obligated/"

Xzibit, Demrick & B-Real have combined forces to form the trio, "Serial Killers". This is the track/video to launch the group to the public, and give you a preview of the upcoming mixtape which drops on Halloween. The mixtape will be available for free download at

"Keep The Change" by Caskey [Music Video]

"What's a man without some principles to stand by?/
A good girl beat a bad bitch by a landslide/
They'll never know about your life doin' 3 minute songs/
So when you gotta tell 'em leave you alone they'll take it wrong/"

New video from my favourite YMCMB artist, the outcast from the rest of em, but probably the most insightful. Caskey strolls through the city, venting in these new visuals for Track 12 from his latest mixtape, "The Transient Classics". One of the better cuts from the mixtape, in my opinion. Check it.

"Cheers From the Crowd" by Joell Ortiz [Music Video]

"That's over, God shined his light, every rhyme I write's/
For my homies behind the wall that's forced to fly a kite/
For my homies not here at all up in the sky with Nikes/
Steppin' through heaven, reppin' they checkin' my thoughts when I cry at night/"

Another Shady army release for y'all. This time it's from Mr. Yaowa. I'm digging this joint, it's got the perfect beat to compliment what Joell was tryna say in the track. Now all I'm waiting on is this BET Slaughterhouse cypher. Check it.

"Survival" by Eminem ft. Liz Rodriguez [Music Video]

"Plus I can just walk up to a mic and just bust/
So, door's open if you'd like to discuss/
Top 5 in this muhfucka and if I don't make the cut/
What, like I give a fuck, I'ma light this bitch up like I'm driving a truck through the side of a pump/"

Not really a fan of this beat. But I prefer Eminem's lyrics in this track over that Berzerk track that everyone's raving about. Combining a gritty backdrop with scenes from the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts, Eminem dropped some visuals for the single. Check it.

"Time Travel" by Dead Prez ft. Busta Rhymes, Black Thought, Bun B & Tr!x

"Boy don't mess with us like Texas/
Y'all jokers, Mike Epps'/
Pack a toaster just like breakfast/
Y'all talk dirty, I write reckless/"

This is a sick collab. Everybody sounds so clear and refined on this track. I'm loving Black Thought's part cuz it's not too often you hear him murk a beat like this. The chorus is kinda weak but the rest makes up for it. Check it.

Live From The Streets: Mr Green ft. Matisyahu, Benefit & Kyon Williams

Here's another addition to Mr Green's unique "Live from the Streets" series. I think this one's really dope. I haven't heard anything from Benefit in a looong ass time. But he spits some really dope verses over the beat made by Mr Green and Kyon Williams. Check it!

Wednesday, 2 October 2013

"The Star Room" by Mac Miller [Music Video]

"As time's a waistin', I'm freebasin' with freemasons/
My girl's switching the locks, the keys keep changing/
Dreamin' of places, my own personal creations/
If there's a party in heaven, I plan to leave wasted/"

Man, Mac Miller's sicker than ever. From what I've heard of his recent shit, he's bringing a new sound to the game. It's a lil off, and it's damn weird, but I like it. It definitely sounds like some drug induced inspiration, which I can dig fo sho. This video re-visits the same room from the last video I remember him dropping, this time it's darker and distorted. Not sure what that means, but it's a dope release regardless. Check it!

"Don't Call Me" by Rakim & DMX

"I idolize my father, he taught me to survive the horror/
cuz times is harder, the skies is darker/
look through the eyes of a snake, see inside the monster, to rise need to divide and conquer/
if it's all about money I don't respect your power, that's weak/
they deprive and devour, they cowards you ask me/"
Awww yeaa. I thought this was such a sick conglomeration of a lot of elements. You got Rakim bringing his legendary lyrical skills and wisdom, DMX bringing his raw energy, and a woman with a hot voice bringing in the hook. I wish it said her name so I wouldn't have to call her "woman." Anyways, the beat was crazy too bringing in that guitar solo. DMX looked a little goofy screaming and grabbing his head during it but it was still epic. I really liked the all around feel of the video too, with close ups on the guitar and just showin em in the studio. Some real hip-hop shit. Check it out.
