Stalley... the last of a dying bread. He has perfected his craft and stayed true to himself with every step of his career.

It's Ninjasonik Ni**A! If you extracted gorilla adrenaline and fed it to David Banner he'd surley turn into the nastiest version of The Hulk ever... Then if you paid him to eat Fred Durst and Weazy F. He would definitely puke Ninjasonik back up onto a stage. This joint is exactly what they would be bumping. Cop the EP here.

S/O to Jeedo over at bling47.com for letting loose this previously unreleased version of Everything's OK.
"Kenny Fresh and I were going to release this mix on our Waajeed x FreshSelects project last year. The homie Blu asked me to remix the original version produced by Flying Lotus. After I finished this ruff mix, he asked for a two track of the instrumental to relay his vocal. He agreed to send it back so I could finish it…… It never showed up. To quote Jay-Z, “What the fuck you done to that?” — I gotta admit, those were the first words that came to my head when I heard what Blu (one of my favorite emcees) did to my remix. Well, It’s sorta like a remix of a remix. Check his version, here. I felt you should hear my original version and judge for yourself." – Jeedo

A lot of people describe projects as "a new sound" or "fresh" with no real ground to stand on. This is one project I can really say has "fresh new sound". The New Jersey spitter NatNaiel just dropped his latest project entitled Pizza. This is 17 tracks of nothing you have ever heard before. The only thing I can say is listen to it for yourself. These are a couple of my favorite tracks.
Chicago emcee Sey and UK producer New Dark Age link up to make some dope music for mass consumption. The two have made a slew of tracks for the upcoming tape. The mixtape was crafted to tell the story of a journey of self where one realizes that they are not of this world.

There has been a lot of talk about Danny! lately with the whole Jay-Z co-sign thing going around. It's about time people finally caught up with the lyrical genius of this hip hop professor. The D. Swain camp decided to let loose the opening track from the Payback album. All I can say is get ready because this album is going to make some noise.

This is the first I'm hearing from both High Horse and Twerk Team. I must say I'm impressed with both these beats. The rhymes are dope as well. Anyone know about these cats let me know!

Zeds Dead and Omar LinX present: Victor - seven genre-bending tracks on Mad Decent's Jeffree's label. Fusing nostalgic 90s sample-based hip hop with futuristic bass and cinematic soundscapes, The Victor Mixtape is both a step forward and a throwback to the past featuring Omar LinX rapping over some of Zeds Deads classic hits such as "Eye On Fire", "Rude Boy" and many more.
The Dungeon fam affiliate and half of Organized noise, Sleepy Brown, has some of the most smoothest vocals and slickest lyrics in R&B. You won't find him fucking with art house frills, minimal beats or anything trendy like that. He's a horns, bass, drums and keys kinda cat... Okay Player?

If you are anything like me you probably made a lot of bad decisions last night in the pursuit of finding out the real story behind this guy named Patrick. It all started when I put my green shoes on. The rest is a little bit of a blur. I woke up this morning and fealt like I lost a boxing match with the 80's Mike Tyson. Not feeling so hot is an understatement in this case. All morning I've been trying to figure out how to kick this horrible feeling of the green clover blues. This is the best list I could come up with. I hope it helps you as much as it's helping me.
Watch re-runs of Trailer Park Boys while drinking two gallons of water
This will make you laugh so much you'll forget that your head feels like it's in a vice.
Read Jay-Z's Decoded and take a shot of Pedialyte after every
Hang Over code.
If you can make your way to an IN-N-OUT Burger, order yourself a 4x4 with animal style fries and a coke. This greasy combo is sure to settle your unsteady stomach.
Take 4 advil and play lil wayne's "I feel like dying" on repeat
I'm not really sure why, but this song always makes me feel better after a long night of drinking. Maybe because it makes me realize it could be worse. (laughs)
Go to Starbucks and blog
There's nothing like searching for dope hip hop while sobering up to the bold pick of the day.
Start Drinking Again
If all else fails just keep going.
