Coney Island’s own FYL Prezident, NEMS enlists EOW vets Iron Solomon and Vanguard (Svengali Bros.) for this sample off the album PRESIDENT’S DAY (available on iTunes NOW!!!), which has been getting a lot of burn in my iPod lately. Although I have had it over a month, I got busy working on the site and really didn’t give it the full attention it deserves for awhile. This video reminded me (isn’t that what videos are for?) to give it a full listen. First reaction? This is Hip Hop. This is Brooklyn. (With a little assistance from Manhattan and Jerzey). Something from this album will probably make its way onto Brooklyn’s Finest Vol. 2, currently in the making, if not some new sh*t from Nems Guttah, C.I.’s finest.
HOMEBOY SANDMAN drops “72 Bars For Chosenberg” for TheFEAST.com, a website that ranks the best places to eat, shop and play in your city. Their site is pretty simple: select your city and click either EAT, SHOP or PLAY. It’s a cool site, but I admit I am showing them love because they showed Hip Hop some love with the Homeboy Sandman verse. Shout out to Rosenberg. And shout out to EOW for puttin’ me on.
Rock and Suge White got a treat for you. Rock enlists Bucktown’s Finest General Steele of Smif n Wessun and VVS Verbal to unleash nothing but power over a Chetriumph beat!! It’s time to WITNESS POWER!!!
