HHHTip your hat,

I’m a touch heartbroken to announce the (sorta) end of an era.

El-P, one of the few men in the music industry who has without a doubt stuck to his guns for the entirety of his career and as such, created a whole sub-genre and movement based on his own convictions has recently announced that Definitive Jux, his label, responsible for giving us phenomenal releases from artists such as: Aesop Rock, Murs, RJD2, Cannibal Ox, SA Smash (R.I.P. Camu Tao), Cage, Mr. Lif and Del‘s last offering, will be taking a ‘break‘ for an undetermined amount of time.  Read the full press release HERE.

This end I would equate to the Native Tongues breaking up.  Although many of you might find that ludicrous and may’ve never heard of some of these artists, this small group of misfits (along side the Rhymesayers imprint)  changed and re-imagined what independent artists could do and to what level they could take it.  The imagination and creativity that they continually injected into the game for over a decade kept things fresh, and although may not have always been the most listener friendly, was brave and had conviction, and for that I have nothing but respect.

As a tribute, 2DopeBoyz posted this incredible compilation of some of Def Jux’s greatest hits and I implore you, if you like this stuff, pick up the records.  They’re truly phenomenal, and I can personally say I’m a proud owner of damn near the entire catalogue.

HHHTo the Left, to the Left,

As I previously posted on the East Coast and the excellent year they’ve been having, let us not forget about their tanned and funky counterparts over on the Left.

Now, although perhaps they haven’t had as successful a run this past little while, don’t let that fool you into thinking they’re not loaded with game changers.

CROOKED I

Slaughterhouse representative.  Dr. Dre approved.  And one of the torchbearers for the New West.  If you’ve never heard Crooked I spit, then you probably don’t listen to much rap.

Likened to a West Coast Pharoahe Monch, Crook’s versatile cadences and cutthroat wordplay made him an obvious candidate to join supergroup, Slaughterhouse.  But even more importantly, he’s one of only a handful of west coast spitters that have managed to stay relevant even when the Hip-Hop spotlight has been buried deep in the south.  Now, set to release a brand new mixtape as well as the launch of his new label, Dynasty Entertainment, Crook’s poised to keep his position and keep the West up.

Here’s a double dose for your listening pleasure:

CROOKED I ft. SNOOP DOGG – GUESS WHO’S BACK

CROOKED I ft. HORSE SHOE GANG & ROYCE DA 5’9″ – CYPHER

93 ‘TIL INFINITY

When the Souls of Mischief recorded 93 ’til infinity, I doubt there was any way they could’ve anticipated that in fact this prophetic song would actually live up to it’s  over ambitious claims.

Now, 16 years later, I still manage to hear this song damn near every hip-hop event I go to and can’t help but love it.  And well, them, as well as the entire Hieroglyphics crew are still going strong and making music strictly for the heads.  Sure their popularity has died off a bit and most kids nowadays think they’re, at best, a one-hit wonder, but at the end of the day, skills is skills and they’ve got skills like a muh’.

Prepping to release their first official group album since 2000’s Trilogy: Conflict, Climax, Resolution, the Souls have enlisted the help of hip-hop innovator, 1/7 of Stetsasonic, and the man honorably known as Plug Four, Prince Paul. If you don’t know either him or Hiero, I suggest you get familiar. Now.

Off the upcoming Montezuma’s Revenge:

SOULS OF MISCHIEF – AIM

And as an added bonus, a brand new ode to A Tribe Called Quest from the Hiero General, Del.

DEL THE FUNKY HOMOSAPIEN – LYRICS TO GO (2009)

THE KING

And finally, what would a post about the West be without an appearance by the Doggfather.

Off his upcoming 10th studio album, Malice n Wonderland:

SNOOP DOGG – I WANNA ROCK
West West Y’all.

Enjoy the Sun.

HHHTime for some akshun,

Today’s post is for people who like Rap.  Period.  That’s it.  You like bars?  You like flows?  You like lyrics that make you go ooooh?  Then this is for you.  If you said no to any of these questions, leave now.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to post this ish yesterday exactly one minute after it was posted!  Unfortunately my code-illiterate ass just couldn’t get it to embed.  Thankfully, as expected, someone Youtube‘d it and we’re back in business.

THE CYPHER

Yesterday the annual shamefest known as the BET hip-hop awards took place and well, as expected, it was a useless piece of goonery crap that only helped to ensure that those who don’t like hip-hop stay hating.  That being said, this award show has provided us with 1 good thing every year and it’s those damn (Rap nerd wet dreams –  ‘What if…’) CyphersLast years dopest cypher featured Juelz Santana, Fabolous, Ace Hood (Who surprisingly rocked it even though he can’t write a song worth his life) and Jadakiss running a mean anchor.   Well, I’m happy to say that this years top cypher nearly made me wet myself.  And if it doesn’t make you at least kegal a couple dozen times, then you lied about one of the above questions.

No more talkin.  RAP!  This one’s gonna have people arguin for a while….

The other 2 cyphers (that were decent, but nowhere near the one above) can be found below:

Cypher #2 ft. Wale, Nipsy Hussle, Gsan & KRS-One

Cypher #3 ft. Nicki Minaj, Buckshot, Crown Royyal & Joe Budden (Budden’s a problem!)

A & E

It seems like the thing to do these days for rappers in their mid-30’s is to find another rapper in their mid-30’s who roughly holds the same stature and combine to make a group.  Canibus and Keith MurrayDel the Funky Homosapien and Tame One. DJ Quik and Kurupt. And even though it would seem like all of these would be dope, or at very least entertaining, only the Quik and Kurupt really popped for me (and I’m a Del fan to the core).  Well we have another pairing for you and this time, it might just work out.  2 people that have influenced a LOT of your favorite rappers but rarely ever get their mention, ladies and gents, I give you A & E (a.k.a. Masta Ace and Edo G.)

**sidenote — for all you Eminem fans, if you didn’t realize that Em started as a Masta Ace clone you better go do your research.  Em’s even copped to it himself.**

MASTA ACE & EDO. G – EI8HT IS ENOUGH

BLAKROC EPISODE #2 ft. Mos Def

We proceed with part 2.  Mos hits the studio and the world implodes.

HIP HOP HISTORY w/ RAKIM

An interview 24/7 Hip Hop did with the Teflon Don breaking down the significance of the number 7 in his life, his falling out with Eric B., and a wild story involving Kool G. Rap getting snuffed and Eric B. riding a sheep skin.

HHHTenacious,

Today is all about clapping.  Whether it be AK’s or appendages is up to you, just make sure it’s out of joy.

LIFE IS BETTER

After finally releasing the super duper illness known as Kamaal the Abstract.  The man Kamaal Fareed, better known as Q-Tip, has just released a new single (and arguably my favorite tune off his previous album this year the Renaissance) entitled Life is Better.  Although on paper the content may seem a bit ‘been there, done that’ish, Q-Tip, accompanied by one of the most soothing vocal qualities of the past quarter-century, Norah Jones, somehow still manage to make it feel fresh.  Or maybe that’s just my opinion.

Either way, this tune is bomb.

**Bonus**

Following along  the same content lines are 2 underground legends: Del the Funky Homosapien and Tame One (who are also Ice Cube’s and Redman’s cousins respectively) who are gearing up for their upcoming duo album, Parallel Uni-Verses .  The song isn’t near as compelling as it could be, but Del is still a monster.

Del the Funky Homosapien & Tame One – Flashback

FOREVER

First you heard it.  Now you get to see it.

The ‘Swagga Like Us‘ of 2009.  I give you Drizzy Drake, Lil Weezy Wee, Kanyeezy and Em.  Fresh off the More Than A Game Soundtrack, Forever.

**Bonus**

For those paying close attention to the last verse,  aside from Eminem sounding like he might be back to his old form, you may’ve also noticed 4 characters that’ve been frequenting the HHHT blog for the past little while standing behind him.  Yes, that was Slaughterhouse and yes, rumor has it they’re slated to be the next artists on Shady Records.  Now I have no idea whether or not this is actually going to go through, but with a machine like Shady/Aftermath behind these four extremely talented spitters, it may mark the beginning of a new era in the mainstream game.  A ‘return to form’ so to speak.  Anyway, here’s a brand new tune from former Aftermath signee, and the best Latino role model since Big Pun

Joell Ortiz feat. Novel – Call Me

APPLAUSE

Toronto-based artists LEO37 + Sunclef have been busy boys.  First separately touring Canada and the States as a part of the WPBE and Zaki Ibrahim‘s crew respectively, then uniting to conquer a 15-date Canadian tour with fellow PPF Housemates, MAGNOLIUS.   All self-booked and self-produced, their inaugural run has been so great that, to show their appreciation for the love they’ve received, PPF House has decided to officially release their new single for FREE.

That’s the word people.

Get it poppin.

HHHT.O. to TaiPAID,

Like the CAPtain had previously reported, inspiration has been a rarity these past few months.  And well, it’s tough to keep the string of goodies comin when the pickings’ve been so slim. Y’know, sure there’ve been good tunes here and there, but nothing that made me lose my poop like that Kurupt/Quik tune.  That was definitely poop worthy.

Some of my favorite groups of the past few years have either disappeared or dropped sub-par efforts **cough cough** Foreign Exchange **cough cough** and people who I generally would be excited to hear have taken the whole ‘mixtape – let’s jump on every feature known to man like Weezy’ concept and oversaturated themselves to the point where I don’t really feel to support them financially the way I once would (I’m lookin at you Busta and Raekwon).  With that being said, had it not been for the oversaturation of some of these guys, I probably would’ve posted only a half of what I have.  So I guess I owe them a….thanks??

Anyway….I found some things that are cool and perhaps you will too.

Miike Snow.

3 guys, not 1.  That’s pretty much all I know about them.  They’ve done their Daft Punk best to stay anonymous and have done a pretty decent job thus far.  All I’ve been able to gather is they  produce some pretty sophisticated pop and the lead singer sounds a touch like Peter Gabriel (listen to how he bends his words) and that automatically earns them awesome points in my book.

Cool tune with a pretty badass remix.  Check it.

Miike Snow – Animal (Punks Jump Up Remix)

Truck North

I first heard of this dude when he showed up on the first (and only) Okayplayer compilation: True Notes some years back and thought, this guys alright.  Since then, he’s shown up on pretty much every Roots album and has consistently improved and grown as an emcee and a writer.   Well, I guess Truck’s now prepping for a big ol’ solo cause his name’s startin to make the blog rounds.

Get your hustle on homie.  I’m definitely a fan of this tune.

Truck North – Never Ending Flip

Finally, as a response to the homie’s post yesterday, this goes out to CAP, 2Hands and the entire PPF fam….a tune that was off the NBA 2K6 soundtrack (which was an incredible soundtrack btw but barely got any love).

Some of the Best from the West.  More Hiero ish.

Dan the Automator Feat. Casual, Del the Funky Homosapien and A-Plus – Don’t Hate the Player.

That’s that new ish folk.  The 1-2 punch is back.

Keep your guard up.
