Rich Kidd and Junia-T join forces to produce an up-lifting backdrop to some top-notch delivery. Regardless of your denomination, it's hard to deny the general spine-tingle you get when anthems like this one reach out and raise your vibe.
Here's an uplifting track for the cats that can relate to doin it strictly for the love. It's Brown Bag, it's Tanya, most importantly it's Hip Hop. Here is to the zeros and ones. This is for US.
Choreographer extraordinaire Lando Wilkins, puts his unique interpretive spin on Big Sean's "What You Doin?" (Bullshitin'). Complete with features from Mos Wanted Crew, Boxcuttuhz and Headbangerz.

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. He takes jabs at black-sploitators and all those that show support. He makes a damn good argument too. The track is complete with what sound like nods to both DJ Premier and Big Pun.
Word in the sheets is that RiFF RaFF is ghostwriting for these two bad bitches. All I know is that they both sound better then they did last year. This beat has a Oakland booty with a L.A. grill. The whole track smacks.
The second EP in the series is based around “Blur,” by underground icon . A reader-acclaimed single off the artist’s Klusterfuk EP, the original cut features boardwork by Wrekonize ofStrange Music's very own . S/O to djbooth.net

Big K.R.I.T continues to put out quality production and lyricism. Not to many ppl can spit country shit with backpack appeal. This is the type of shit you'd here in a hip hop purists ipod or as a booty bouncing sountrack at club Magic. Luda is no slouch either.

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.
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.
Kids These Days (shakes fist)... Today we get a tight ode to butts AND boobs at the same damn time. The jawn is produced by Class President Thelonius Martin (Fly High). I here Vic is no slouch in the sex-music game; If he hits a high E within a ten foot radius of your girl there's a 68% chance that she will squirt through her skirt. I here it's a good way to #Savemoney while out on any date.

Top Dawg staple emcee ScHoolboy Q is joining in on this doodle video trend we've seen coming out lately from Big Sean, Mac Miller and any one else working with the illroots fam. Off of Habits and Contradictions.
Peep what happens when you take too many bath salts, spend your spare time with Dirt Na$ty and let your Samson swing in the wind. Snoop Dogg will show up out of the green, and when Snoop shows up he always brings sexy red bones, green screens and green beans nawhaImean? No sticks no seeds just that Al Green.

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.
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?
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.
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." In addition, watch Slick Rick rock the seminal "Children's Story," Black Moon's Buckshot enters the stage to perform "How Many Emcees" & "I Gotcha Opin", Smif-N-Wessun blast the indelible "Sound Bwoy Bureill," and M.O.P. drop the all-time street anthem "Ante Up."
Earlier that day... Fellow comrade Charmingly Ghetto graced the same stage in commanding fashion. Stay checking in, more CG will be dropping very soon.

Today must be acronym day, this time we don't have to guess it's r.O.B (realist One breathing). Even though I know I'm real and I'm breathing I'ma still tip my hat to r.O.b for goin in and putting on over this 78 West beat. Off the forthcoming CircaXXV which will be dropping soon.

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.
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. This is his latest called Plastic Dreams. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he does bang Rihanna soon. (laughs) Hit the download link and support good music.
Oh shit! Wyclef is back and he brought L.A.D with him. I'm not sure what L.A.D stands for but he sounds sorta like Camron who I know is also on drugs.
Possible meanings for the L.A.D acronym:
Long-time Addict of Drugs
Lemme Ask Dad
Little Ass Dick
Legumes and Dobermans
Let's All Dance (on drugs)
STS is on his grizzy. This is his latest.
