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. Let us know if you are feeling the track in the comments below.
Here is the first music video off The Jet LagÂ EP, directed by Robbie Barclay,Â featuring samples from LA artist Chelsea Wolfe and produced by Nate G. For those of you tired of hearing the same old version of guns, drugs, pimpin’, tough talk, etc,Â Kosha Dillz brings you his brand of Hip Hop from a young urban Jewish perspective. His new projectÂ up on DJ Booth is a lot of indie mixes … 6 songs of bands you might wanna look up after hearing his takes on them.
It brings me back to my hardcore rap days of cursing all the time..it felt good! …
Kosha told us in a recent conversation, but it’s not really that much cursing, actually.Â Kosha is not a murda-death-kill type of MC. He has a great sense of humor and represents daily life triumphs and struggles that anyone can relate to.
Enjoy this single and video off of J.Pinder‘s album “Careless“, on Fin Records. Dice bodies the hook over Kuddie Fresh production. The video was directed by John Coyne and Trevor Traynor and has been featured on MTVu. The 22 year old from Seattle has collaborated with Rhymesayers, Guilty Simpson and others. He has the (swag) flow, style, presence and content. Definitely moving Hip Hop forward and I look forward to hearing the rest of his album.
When Kid Rock first came out I wasn’t really a fan. But over the years I’ve come to respect the man. He made his own name, as the hook says and has pimped the game. We know Yelawolf has hella spit, but the chorus on this is dope too, making for a bonafide hit record. I first heard this in the car and it does have a feel good, driving on the highway kinda feel to it, so it is perfect that they are ridin’ around in some crazy drop tops with the bulls horns on the front and everything. The only thing I am a little confused about is in the beginning it says “From Bama to the Bronx”. I thought Kid Rock was from Detroit? Am I buggin’? Anyway, the song and video are dope. Let me know if you figure it out.
