REFLECTION!

Not many more sleeps left.

Whatcha think?

HHHTake it to the track,

After an incredible week of reminiscing, honoring and supporting, I thought it’d be nice to take a breather from the emotional onslaught and just, sit back and listen to good rappers rapping.  You’re cool with that right?

GOLDEN STATE

Ahmad Jones definitely doesn’t get his props.

The Fourth Avenue Jones frontman is seriously, seriously ill.  Cadences, content, a live show that’s known world round as being absolutely captivating and on top of all that, apparently he’s one of the nicest guys in the biz.  However with all these positives going for him, after 5 consecutive years of dropping records with 4th Avenue Jones, in 2005 he disappeared from the scene and with the exception of a handful of collaborations, seemed to stop making music.  Well, it’s 2010 and it’s looking like Ahmad’s finally releasing a follow up to his 1993 solo debut, Ahmad, and we couldn’t be happier.

Here with a tribute to his home state of California, I give you some new Ahmad!

AHMAD – GOLDEN STATE

SHO’ NUFF

So the last time I posted some of that new Freeway & Jake One ish, I had implied that I was off Freeway and it was just that song that caught my attention.

Well…I lied and this album sounds like FIRE!  Jake One is pumping out bangers left, right and center, and as for Freewizzy, let’s just say I’ma start checkin for ol’ boy again.  Off the upcoming Stimulus Package:

FREEWAY & JAKE ONE Feat. BUN B – SHO’ NUFF

MAN AT ARMS

Not much to say other than I’m liking this dude more and more.

Some new new from the Okayplayer:

TRUCK NORTH – MAN AT ARMS

Enjoy it folk.

Be well.

HHHTime for mines,

For a lot of artists, their first venture into recording is with a crew.  Whether it be because they’re insecure of their skills, they’re not all that serious about it and just get roped in, or they just like vibing with homies, many of today’s best solo artists started in a clique.  Well, today features 4 cats who started in (and some who are still part of) some dope collectives, but have also found a way to establish themselves away from their peers and make their own moves.

BEST IN THE WORLD

No the title doesn’t pertain to my thoughts of this man’s skills (although I’ve heard he’s the nicest guy in hip-hop).

Bun B. The UGK representative, Texan general and Trill originator is solo again, but this time not by choice.  Since Pimp C‘s tragic passing in ’07 Bun’s continued what he had originally started after Pimp C’s ’03 incarceration: keeping substance in the South and keeping UGK alive at all costs.  Perhaps second to only Scarface in Southern Hip-Hop lineage, Bun has managed to earn the respect of damn near all his peers and UGK detractors rarely come up for air in fear of a good ol’ stompin.

Personally, I’ve never been the hugest Bun B fan but I’ve always had respect for what he does and what he stood for and this jam right here might be one of the best things he’s done in years. Produced by Statik Selektah, enjoy this.

BUN B – BEST IN THE WORLD

GREEN GHOST

Holiday Styles is one of the most underrated rappers on the planet.

Starting his career back in ’96 with fellow Yonkers natives Jadakiss and Sheek Louch as the Lox, Styles has since grown from his shiny suit debut to one of the most no-nonsensee emcees out.  Known for his tremendous wordplay and straight up demeanor, he’s managed to carve out a nice place in Hip-Hop for himself despite potential overshadowing by Jadakiss’ own solo success.  I guess that’s just a testament to how dope he is.  One of the few pseudo-mainstream cats left pushing hardcore lyricism, I give you a couple bangers off his new Green Ghost project with DJ Green Lantern.

STYLES P. Feat. RAEKWON – TIME WILL TELL

STYLES P. – SHADOWS

YOWAAAA!

Not many people are effin with Joell Ortiz these days.

Although he didn’t start in a crew, since joining the all-star ensemble of Slaughterhouse, Joell has seemingly upped the anti with every verse and continues to improve every time he drops.  This guy is disgusting!  Truly an heir to Big Pun‘s throne, I hope he’s given the proper support to break out into the mainstream and make up for Fat Joe‘s recent disgrace of the Latino Hip-Hop community.

Off that new ish with Novel:

JOELL ORTIZ & NOVEL – GHETTO PT. 1

*BONUS*

I rant about Von Pea lots.

He’s definitely one of the illest of the new school rappers and although he hasn’t clearly defined himself as a solo artist yet, when given the opportunity I can definitely see him blowing up bigger than Tanya Morgan ever did.

VON PEA – TOSS IT OVER

I’m caught up!

Get into it folk.

Triple.
