TeamBackPack presents Mission Underground ft. A-1, Anilyst & Locksmith [Video]

"You keep droppin albums and CDs, we get it, you workin, you writin/
But it's sorta like Rihanna's titties, we seen em, there's no more excitement/
You tweet and you post and you boast and you hostin these legion of students/
You ??? in all this attention but no-one believes in your music/"

This cypher is dope. All 3 of these guys are very lyrical, and aside from Locksmith fuckin with the mic stand, there's not a dull moment. Check it!

"Moving Along" by Merkules [Music Video]

"Fuck a strategy, I gradually have to be/
Who I am, you ain't them you an actual masterpiece/
I don't rap for the cash, I'd rather get back to my family/
Make my grandparents happy and have em travel the map with me/"

Here's some raw Canadian shit for ya. Merkules is a beast, even on his less hype tracks. This is one of them but he has some pretty sick rhymes in both verses. Check it!

"No Comin Back" by Serial Killers (Xzibit, B-Real & Demrick) [Music Video]

"Say I'm bout to overdose like Anna Nicole/
Plus the devil already got one hand on my soul/
Should I stand on my toes? Cuz I'm walkin on a tight rope/
Thin line between yours & mine when the nine blow/"

Serial Killers must've had a successful European tour, cuz the footage serves for 90% of this video. I love this beat n the chorus on this track, n they all have decent verses. Check it!

"The Demon's Blade" by Army of the Pharaohs [Music Video]

"When I click mine, your whole clique dyin'/
Flickas flyin, ricochet through hips and hit spines/
Bulldozer through ya house, Celph'll pave the way/
He the hardest non-graffiti artist that sprays a K/"

Army of the Pharaohs just dropped this video to a track from their recently released "In Death Reborn" album. This one's gotta more upbeat feel than AOTP is normally rappin over, and Vinnie wore his nice shirt to match the vibe lol. This is some straight hip-hop shit. Sick sample & drums, no chorus, just straight spittin! Check it.

"Grass Ain't Greener" by Apathy

"And the cars and the clothes from the stars that you know/
Got you runnin out, gettin credit cards you can blow/
That's marketing bro, you a target fo sho/
You at Target right now, cart full of clothes/"

Apathy just dropped his "Connecticut Casual" album, and I got the chance to check a few tracks. This one's different from anything I've ever heard from Ap, and overall it's a really dope song. Some shit to think about in this one. Check it.

"0 to 100 (Remix)" by G-Unit

"Nigga gettin' money new to you/
I give a fuck if shit get ugly, there'll be a beautiful funeral/
You fit the strip I'm gon assume it's true, can't maneuver through/
The street without a strategy, ain't nobody to tutor you/"

Seen a picture of G-Unit @ Summer Jam 2014 floatin around the internet, but I didn't think much of it. Apparently they've re-assembled the team and have released a couple tracks. I heard one called "Nah I'm Talkin Bout" but I wasn't feeling it at all, but I think they planned it that way. This track on the other hand is a remix of a Drake song, and is more reminiscent of the original G-Unit sound. Check it!
