Listen/ Download Here. Hi-Jynx - Jordans & A Gold Chain Feat. G.O.D Jewels
This record couldn't come at a greater time! With all the hype surrounding the release of the Air Jordan XI "Space Jam" model, these two artists go in visually about their life surrounding such material items and the nostalgia.
Very abstract and brilliantly executed!
Hi-Jynx and Chicago based artist G.o.D Jewels give you images of what they remember being the "it" items of their early childhood and what atmosphere came with obtaining and the journey to possess these staples of our past

I appreciate everyone who rocks with me and I got yall to the fullest! Dope! Steady, To The Top! - Hi Jynx"

" This is the first of a series of Records that DID NOT make the cut for the Tape.
I'm sharing this with you as a bonus, mid-mixed and close to raw vocals to further authenticity.
A note about "Kid Robot"...: The effects of Domestic Violence are far reaching and very serious. This is a topic that hits close to home and should be taken seriously and dealt with in the proper manner. If you know anyone who is experiencing these conditions, get help from the nearest authorities possible.
This aint no afterschool special though... "

" What's good? Thank You for allowing the previous Leak, titled "Stress", to do over 700 Downloads its' first week. Steady!
If you were rocking with that record I just want to say...
Without further hesitation here is the Second Leak off my upcoming release effort. "

Didn't know there was a video for this.
Ron Browz was always right for making this song though. Begging is the only way he can assume to get money these days since Lord Hov proclaimed "Olde Death of Thou Auto-tuneth".
Words from the man who made Jello Pudding more famous than our fucking Mothers:
" I don’t like referring to the music as ‘clean,” says Cosby, who does not rap or sing on the album. “What I like is what you’re not going to do. You’re not going to curse. You’re not going to put women down. You’re not going to put the glory of the gun somewhere. And you’re not going to put a whole lot of violence up front like that’s the thing that will cleanse you and make you feel better. "
Now we understand Bill's plight with the black community. It's akin to Oprah's and her struggle. We do honestly think though, however, that this is somewhat infringing on the premise that you cannot turn a dislike or personal disdain around by attacking what you have a negative opinion towards, at its core and helm.
Listen to it if you dare. Here
Bill Cosby Presents the Cosnarati: State of Emergency drops November 24th.

Listen/ Download Here. J Face - Wasted Talent
Here's the second single off of J Face's effort Still Aight.
This is what the man himself has to say about the track:
"Wasted Talent touches on a subject very common to our society, especially in the entertainment business; drug/alcohol and abuse. There's been more than a handful of successful individuals who fell victim to substance abuse, and even some on the verge of success not making it to their full potential. As role models to the younger generation, I think its important that this issue is pushed because this is all we see on-screen. There's more to these individuals than whats portrayed by the media."

Listen, Download Here. Big Wayde - What Have They Done
Well, while scouring the daily emails as we do so often, (our favorite task, damnit!) we came across this dude Big Wayde and his single "What Have They Done off his upcoming effort When The Rain Stopped.
Now, we know what you're thinking...who is this dude??, "wtf", etc, etc. We've taught you better than that if you are performing the verbal latter.
Cutting to the chase, the production caught us first. That bass line loop is smooth and rocked in the background as we continued to sift through emails effortlessly. The hook is pretty damn decent, no complaints. The lyrics are there, however they're not what we so much as gravitated towards in comparison to the other two elements listed.
With that said this song can rock a couple times. Good stuff, we'll look out for a couple more cuts off of When The Rain Stopped and throw it up.

Interestingly enough we aren't too excited about this interview based on this clip. From the looks of things O Winfrey is gonna waste this interview on asking ol' Hovy questions that we've known for years +.
We don't know whether she's telling the non-familiar community that Jay-Z has "arrived" or she's just doing this for archival purposes. either way...we'll tune in.

If you have never seen this scene then you are beyond failing at cinematic appreciation. Or you just never had a mother, or any females in your household for that matter, that was watching this movie all. damn. day.
The actor died as a result with a long battle with cancer.
Rest In Peace.
*How is this relevant to Hip-Hop you may have asked? (We're sure you didn't but we just wanted to point out...)
Oh rappers have been using the metaphor play on Swayze's name paired with his role in the above film for vanishing, disappearing, leaving a crime scene, one night stands...the list goes on for days.
Now you know.

We loved every second of this short interview with Gasface.
Miss Info recalls her memories of working with her Editors at The Source magazine in crowning what many say is the best Hip-Hop album of all time to this day. If you didn't know before of her passion for the art form, you know a little more after watching this clip.

So...since he went into euphoric hiding after his Rock The Bells fiasco, DOOM is back to give you a mini-taste of things been goin' on with his ever so secretive efforts.
*Bonus: We managed to snag a press release off the interwebs.
" DOOM is one of the most original and uncompromising voices in hip-hop. From his work in the 90’s with the seminal KMD to his legendary releases under a variety of aliases including MF Doom, Madvillain, King Geedorah, Viktor Vaughn, Dangerdoom & more, his prolific body of work has always valued artistic integrity and creativity over anything else. As numerous and varied as his albums are, DOOM also has a thick catalog of guest appearances, remixes, non-album tracks, & vinyl only singles. For the first time, Unexpected Guest presents many of these hard to find tracks as a mix CD, executed and overseen by the Super Villain himself.
With a list of co-conspirators which includes marquee level names such as Talib Kweli, Ghostface & GZA as well as underground heroes Vast Aire, CountBass D & Kurius, the music on this disc highlights DOOM’s ever-present trademark wit and taste for raw and ominous beats. On “Trap Door,” he spits couplets like “No curse words / DOOM the worst church nerd verse heard” over a plucked bass and guitar line from producer Jake One that sounds like the funkiest spy movie soundtrack imaginable. “Sniper Elite” sees the emcee united with the late J Dilla, and is one of the many tracks featured that has yet to see an official CD release. The album will also feature a never before heard live version of DOOM’s classic “I Hear Voices” from the Operation Doomsday album.
Peppered with his signature comic book dialogue and vintage sound clips, Unexpected Guests presents a treasure trove of DOOM obscurities which should shed light on material that even some hardcore fans may have missed. It’s a frenetic, virtuosic look at a true hip-hop original."

This must have been fate calling the moth to the flame. The reason we missed this honestly is because the "side" of the internet that we normally peruse for these underground gems of the Next Up generation of musicians had'nt been travelled by us for a couple of weeks.

Can you even name all 50?
Didn't think so.

One of the most interesting thing to do is watch how the Nardwuar team tries to throw off the artists but, not disrespectfully.

Ok let's just start off by saying PreZZure has impressed us in many ways than just one. He is by far a dope lyricist and puts in a crazy amount of work on not only the New York emcee circuit but the production tip as well. We always see him at various venues around the town.
Here's what PreZZure says about his latest effort:
" The saga continues. iRhyme 3 serves as the start of my 3rd year as an Hip Hop artist. In a short period of time i've accomplished a lot and faced many obstacles. Through all my trails and tribulations I've created music in order to keep myself sane and for all fans of music. I've received many praises from supporters who enjoy music as part of their daily soundtrack. It truly is an honor to be blessed with a talent and able to use it for a greater good. For the past two years i've not only been a student of Hip Hop but i've been a teacher too. Thanks to all who've been a part of my journey. You are appreciated "

Young Hov covers Ol' XXL Magazine for their inaugural Fall issue.
Jay gives a little insight as to what he think about this claim:
" 'But when I say I’m the best, I don’t say that outta my ass. I say that with all my stats behind me. I put that against anybody. I mean anybody. I really believe that… I believe in a lot of things. I believe that ‘SportsCenter’ is the best thing on TV. I shouldn’t have to prove it. But I do have these stats to prove it. I’m talking about real run. I’m not talking about years off. I’m talking about straight—boom, boom, boom—back to back. We’re not talking about heritage acts either. We’re not talking about respect what I’ve done. I’m talking No. 1 [albums] 10 times. The Beatles is the only one [to have more No. 1 albums]. They got 19, and if I get a surge of creativity, I could make nine albums next year.' "
