No question, Sparks is a purist. He takes his music and culture very seriously. Here the rhyme-smith touches on what he sees a hip hop epidemic.

Paten Locke - Rap Athletics

If Rap was an Olympic sport Paten Locke would surely be a multi-Rapthlete relay specialist. Repping U.S.A via Jacksonville Paten would pass the baton back and forth to himself while cutting on wax and juggling beats. He would most likely to take home several medals. Here is a joint that proves it. S/0 to our freinds over at WIB

JJDoom - Guv'nor

It's moments like this when I here ello Guv'nor early in the morning that makes me want to break out my old comics and peruse the colorful graphic novels of yester-year. I'll look through a few pages remebering when some of these pictures gave me a mini boner. Then I'll most likely get bored and wonder why the fuck I still have these things, I'll remember; "Comic books make great weed trays." Oh wait, I quit smoking weed. FUCK YOU CORPORATE AMERICA. You ruined my child-hood memories and my Saturday morning cartoons.

Vic Mensa & Thelonius Martin - Naked Pictures (video)

TheDREAMERS - DreamingOutLoud (Feat. KidPhase)

BearBlu & Sey are back with a new group and a new name. These two have only gotten better since their last release, better pay attention now!

Muvafux – Winners Circle (Beat Tape)

Two dope producers got together to make some quality music. Here's the result, 10 cold joints.

Arjaye Jeter & Absolute - No Balloon Birthday II (Mixtape)

Straight from Chicago, it's Arjaye Jeter & Absolute newest mixtape 'No Balloon Birthday II', hosted by DJ Chi.

SuaveHaus ft. Keith Charles, Spacebar, Weedy & Truth - C.R.E.A.M

Ruby Hornet just dropped some newness for your face. J-Coop, Abib Jameel and Charmingly Ghetto are SuaveHause. The horns in this joint go. 

CG on the origins of SuaveHause:

SuaveHaus came about after we realized our similar tastes in music and our influences. We all felt that perspective 8 Ball and MJG had on their records was their own narration of the realities around them and it was always delivered fervently, no matter the subject matter. Collectively, we missed that vibe and felt we should share that same unadulterated and attention grabbing style to this project so that came out of that. The name is from us paying homage to the legacy that was left behind by that independent label in the hip hop industry and also is an ode to the Southern influence of music on hip hop.

Chief Keef X Childish Gambino - Back & Forth (video)

Here's a cool idea. Let's pick the youngest hardest rapper fresh out the murder capital and sit him down next to a refined comedian. They'll have a nice conversation about... things, that won't be awkward... Did Donald just say fart?      

Rick Ross ft. Andre 3000 - Sixteen

4 beats to a measure, 4 measures to a bar, 16 bars to a verse and yet that sometimes still leaves us hungry for more. That's where Bo$$ comes in with an 8 min track produced by the always impeccable and never forgettable J.U.S.T.I.C.E League. Mr. Andre 3k could prolly spit a hot 160 and it still wouldn't be enough to quench our insatiable thirst for incredible lyricism. Andre's guitar solo on the other hand should have perhaps been left alone, props for trying something new though.

Busta Rhymes & Freinds - Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest (video)

Enjoy uninterrupted coverage and front row seating at one of Hip Hop's most memorable on-stage reunions ever as Busta Rhymes is joined by A Tribe Called Quest and Leaders of the New School for the first performance of their seminal classic collaboration "Scenario."

Earlier that day... Fellow comrade Charmingly Ghetto graced the same stage in commanding fashion. Stay checking in, more CG will be dropping very soon.

Figure ft. Cas One - Doomsday

A few years ago a good friend of mine told me that he thought Dubstep was the soundtrack to the Apocalypse. I responded by saying that it wasn't popular enough to be deemed that important. Since then, Dubstep has blown the fuck up and I stand corrected on that front. If next, the world blows up I suppose Figure's dirty synths and drooling bass is what I'll be bumping and my friends prophecy will be fulfilled. 

G-Eazy ft. Johanna Fay - Plastic Dreams

Some call him the James Dean of rap, some call him Gerald, and some just call him G. The point is you can call G-Eazy what every you want just know he is killing the game right now.
