Nice to see the entire Dipset back together doing what they do best: Talking that shit while showing that uptown flair only Harlem cats can pull off successfully. Killa, with Juelz on the hook link up with Jim Jones, Freekey Zekey and Dame Dash to film the A-Trak, Oliver and Just Blaze produced “Dipsh*ts” off Cam’ron and A-Trak’s collab EP Federal Reserve.
Swave Sevah has made a name for himself battling MC’sÂ Dizaster, Head Ice, Shotgun Shug to name a few (search “Swave Sevah vs” on youtube) and touring with J-Live, Poison Pen and Immortal Technique. This past Friday on MCMI RADIO, we got an exclusive preview of some Swave Sevah songs off his album “Son of a One Armed Man”, set to drop in 3 days on Creative Juices Music. Everything on the album, even the title “Son of a One Armed Man”,Â is inspired by real life (Swave’s dad actually had one arm since a childhood accident and yet overcame that, to become a champion martial artist) and features veteran spitters Killer Mike, Sean Price, Poison Pen, Marv Won, Ike P, Chordz Cordero and others.
Besides making music and winning MC battles, the Harlem native is known to have a mean knuckle game. The conversation heated up as we talked about the right to “shoot the fair one”, Washington State’s “Mutual Fight Agreement” law and what happened to someone who posted a disrespectful sexual reference under a picture of Swave’s daughter on Facebook. I know, Facebook beef is corny, but you wont believe what this guy had the nerve to say about his daughter. This one might be the exception to the rule.
To find out how the story ended, and hear exclusive tracks before the album drops, listen to MCMI RADIO: Real Hip Hop. Real Talk.

Vicky Green release’s visuals for her underground banger “Riverside” Â Prod. By Willie B with cameo from a bunch of Harlemnites and Mazzi of Soul Purpose. This video captures what Harlem is and the diversity that lies within it.
This is a pretty dope ode to Harlem. At first I’m like, “Whoah, did they clear that Big L sample?” Not from a legal standpoint, but Big L is one of our fallen heros and I hoped his people were alright with young new artists repping Harlem that way, with Big L’s voice on the track. But as you will see in the video, they brought in L’s brother and promoted “The Big L Story” at the end of the video, so I think it’s all good. They seem to have done it right.
Ellementt and Crimson combine enough of the hardcore aspects of Harlem with everyman’s lifestyle and cameos from young kids into baseball, skateboarding, just chillin’ out and having a good time.Â The music is dope. The flows are in the pocket. What else you need to know? The track was produced by DjFamilly Tyz.Â The video was directed byÂ Michael Xerri & Julie Dayan.Â You can download the song FREE off the Bandcamp listed below.

This song is Prod. by TDE’s Willie B the man behind the sound of Kendrick Lamar‘s “Rigamortis”. This song is a descriptive explanation of everyday life in Harlem, NY … at the same time drawing parallels to what happens in hoods everywhere.
