Couple new jams from Slaughterhouse’s East Coast contingent.
This jam from Jumpoff Joe Beezy is off an upcoming mixtape with producer J. Cardim, who although isn’t a household name yet, has already produced for the likes of Kweli, Wayne, Luda, Akon and Jean Grae, just to name a few and he seems to be picking up steam. Budden does his thing as usual. Sideways shots and all.
Meanwhile, this jam from Joell is off his upcoming ‘Best of Both Worlds’esque mixtape with singer Novel. So far I’ve heard 2 tracks and they’ve both been pretty dope. The first one, if you remember references the Al Green tune ‘Call Me’ and I’m always cool with Al Green references. Anyway, this jam right here is just as funky as the last and Joell is just someone you don’t wanna play with. Get it:
I love Tanya Morgan, I really do.
I just wish they picked/made better beats. They suffer from the same problem that beasts like Kurupt and Eminem do which is essentially having no filter for beats. And maybe that’s how they wanna be portrayed, but hey if that’s the case all the power to’em. I just love it though when they decide to jump on something nice. Von Pea murders this.
I’M LIKE CHE GUEVARA WITH BLING ON, I’M COMPLEX.
From the makers of those hella entertaining soundboards that CAP put up awhile back. I give you 7 PAGES of Jay-Z subliminal disses. Pure entertainment. Click Pic.
I haven’t posted 2 back to back blogs in awhile but with the bombardment of what’s happened today and the fear that these’ll be taken down QUICK, I’m on it.
WAYNE & EM
Weezy F‘s been beggin King Marshall to tandem with him for a few years now and up until a couple months ago, I thought Forever was gonna be the only time we heard either of them working together on any legitimate level.
Fast forward to today, and all the rumors have now been confirmed. Em’s on Wayne’s upcoming ‘Rebirth’ and well….I’ll let you decide. Let’s just say, I could’ve already put up 3 other tracks from Rebirth but decided that I’d rather go listen to traffic instead. But this….click before the take down.
SLUM & LIB
For the first time since J-88, Dilla’s boys link up with his Jaylib counterpart to create something reminiscent of those Fantastic days.
Baatin tears this. I’m all smiles. R.I.P.
EXILE + J.MITCHELL
Some of you might not be familiar with Exile.
Easily one of the leaders of the new class of dope producers, Exile, the one responsible for the now cult classic, Below the Heavens that he did with fellow westcoaster, and also a leader in his own right, Blu, has been pumping out dope track after dope track for quite some time now. I was first put on his ish when my homie J$Money pointed me towards his Dirty Science LP that he dropped in ’06. Featuring guest spots from Slum Village, Blu, Ghostface, Aloe Blacc and more, his first solo effort was truly something to behold. Now, 3 years and 4 collaborative records later, his skills are sharper, his clout is heavier and his tunes are just as diverse as ever. Off his sophomore Radio from earlier this year, I give you a chill track for anyone who needs a little sun during these winter months.
Get’em before it’s too late!
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.
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…’) Cyphers. Last 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 #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 Murray. Del 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.
No MPFrees? Now how could I do that to you. This one’s for the CAPtain to get his blood pumpin.

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.
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
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.
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…
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.
The Kings of Rock. The Black Beatles. The epitome of 2 turntables and a microphone. The first group to mash rock and hiphop. The hellraisers from Hollis Queens who defined a sound, and gave an image to hiphop, have been inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame. Here are a couple vids of the ceremony.
First Eminem Inducts RUN DMC into the Hall of Fame.
Then the boys come up to make their acceptance speech. Run talking about Russell Simmons smoking weed and drinking screwdrivers all day is pretty funny.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
This will start your morning off right. I wish I saw this on Saturday for my ridiculous post. The Lonely Island are killing it right now. First they came with the Christmas hit ‘Dick in a Box’. Then came ‘Jizz in my Pants’, followed by ‘I’m on a boat motherfucker’ and now ‘Like a boss’ feat. Seth Rogen’. 2 minutes of straight comedy. I’ve watched it 4 times already.
I don’t know bout you…but from what I can tell, there are OODLES of people (including 80% of my entourage) just gettin outta bed from Wednesday night. So if you’re lucky/unlucky enough to fall into that category, here’s a bunch of music to veg out too.
First up we have the entire compiled Month of Madness by Roc-A-Fella’s version of Ghostface, Freeway.
If you’re not sure what this is, Freeway set out to write and record a track for everyday during the month of December (Kind of like a compressed version of Crooked I’s Hip Hop Weekly series that he did last year). Anyways, as tedious as it may seem to go through 32 tracks (no matter WHO the artist is), there are definitely some dope verses and nasty beats on this. Is it too much….perhaps….but a fun project nonetheless. It’s like actually getting to see a rapper PRACTICE. Hopefully this means his next album’ll be Bananas.
From the fine people at OnSmash & IllRoots….Click flick to DL.

…And speaking of Crooked I and practicing….
For the past however many years (especially the past 2 or 3) there’s been a LOT of talk surrounding Dr. Dre’s version of Chinese Democracy, Detox.
Word is that the album features 50, Bishop Lamont, Em, a reunion with Snoop (the last one being Imagine off Snoop’s Blue Carpet Treatment with D’Angelo) and even collabs with DJ Quik (which excites me very much.) And well, as many of us wait to see if the good Dr. can return to the strength of Chronic 2001 (because, yes, no matter what’s happened since I am STILL a fan), here are some unofficial leaks from the album.
*Note none of these songs have Dr. Dre rapping on them, but they have his Verses (a.k.a. the Ghostwriter spitting).
Crack A Bottle Feat. Eminem – The 1st and 3rd verses are ‘Dr. Dre’ verses.
Say Dr. Dre (written by Crooked I) – This is a solo joint (sorry but I don’t have the mpfree for this one).
DJ Quik spillin his guts about Detox.
And finally, a 20 min interview with Dre’s current muse (outside of Em and Snoop of course) Bishop Lamont talking about the record, as well as dissing Game and all that other stuff you gossip folk love.
Be well people. ’09 is lookin FAAAAANtastic.
Manic Mondays presents:
Dope Kicks that are coming out, maybe coming out, or that are just Dope.
Hi-Tops. I like’em. Maybe you do too.
Carlone put you guys on the Air Yeezy’s last week. And well, chances of you getting a pair are about equal to MC Hot Dog kickin some knowledge. F’REAL f’real.
So in other words, it ain’t happenin (at least not without you forfeiting half your unborn child’s college fund).
And as you sulk about the Kanye’s here’s some more fodder for your woes. Foot Fantasies designed/inspired by dope peoples.
Eminem Discussing his upcoming Jordan’s
They look doooooooooope.
If you never hit up the De La Dunks that came out ’05/’06 (see LEO37’s feet at the next 2 HHHT events) here’s your chance to cop the next De La Dunk.
With the release of their new disc this year entitled ‘You’re Welcome’ which also includes a 20th anniversary remake of ‘3 Feet High & Rising’ De La have said that they will be releasing a new shoe to go along with the album.
The images of the kicks below (inspired by their 6th album, A.O.I. Bionix) are rumored to be the next kicks but many message boards are claiming these are decoys.
Either way…here they is.
Dope Obama Kicks.
One of’em might be real, the other, homemade. Either way…very dope.
(I really really wish there were more pics of the one on the left. Damn!)
