Joell doin some classic shit over some CLASSIC shit.

Y’know how he do.  Just download it already.

JOELL ORTIZ – KAWL ME (CLASSIC REMIX)

HHHThere you are!

Today’s post touches on the phenomena that Harlem rep and Dipset General,  Cam’ron just went through over the past year called, ‘WHERETHEFUCKYOUBEEN-itis” It’s a phenomena that has plagued the music industry for almost as long as there’s been an industry and ever year, more and more incredible talent succumb to its fatal clutches.

Well, just recently a few artists have seemed to fight their way through ‘WHERETHEFUCKYOUBEEN-itis” and are here to tell their stories.

SADAT X

Teacher.  Firefighter.  Basketball coach.  Convicted Felon?!

Ok, so if you’ve really had your ear to the pavement, you’d know that this Brand Nubian General hasn’t actually disappeared but he definitely hasn’t made it easy to find him either.  Having released 3 albums in the past 4 years (my personal favorite being 2006’s Black October pictured above) despite being rung up on weapons charges, he’s stayed the course that he started back in ’96 and released his 6th solo album just this past May titled, Brand New Bein’.  And sure, although he continues to release his music to very little fanfare, Sadat‘s voice remains fierce, his cadences abstract, and his lyrics poignant.  Now coupled with another New York legend, I’m proud to bring you some of that new new.

SADAT X feat. PETE ROCK -TURN IT UP

BTNH

Bone bone bon-booooone…bone BONE bone BONE!

From Flesh ‘n Bone being incarcerated to Bizzy Bone dealing with Schizophrenia to Wish Bone becoming a Realtor, this groundbreaking Cleveland quintet have seen their share of problems.  And although they continued to push even as a trio (remember ‘Home’ where they sampled Phil Collins?  I won’t hate but go listen for yourself) they never got back to that sound that we all came to love.  Well, with Flesh’s release and Bizzy’s attempt to return to sobriety, Bone heads collectively let out a sigh of relief as the team has reformed and been grinding in the lab.   And well, there’ve already been 2 or 3 songs that I passed on posting cause well, they just weren’t that good.  This one I can definitely dig on.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you:

BTNH – GANGSTAS GLORY

NAPPY ROOTS

Remember Nappy Roots?

Awnaw? Po Folks? Those were dope ass jams.  And while their sophomore release Wooden Leather barely got a spin, and there next record, Humdinger, did a bit better due to some savvy internet marketing, they haven’t been able to recapture the glory they had on 2002‘s Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz.  That being said, despite not always having the best production, I’ve always appreciated these cats for spitting some proper lyrics and this one is no exception.

Some new Nappy Roots for ya, whatcha think?

NAPPY ROOTS – RIDE

*BONUS*

EARLY!

No people, I know Freeway hasn’t been missing so stop your hating.  In fact, he’s been quite the opposite and been demolishing the blogs for the past year with what seems like a never ending barrage of tunes.  However, I used to be a huge Freeway fan but somewhere down the line I just kinda got bored of it.  Well, I finally found a new tune of his that made me do a Track 2 from Low End Theory and well, I thought that warranted a mention in today’s post.  Featuring the Chef himself and production from Seattle heavyweight Jake One, I give you:

FREEWAY feat. RAEKWON – ONE THING (Prod. by JAKE ONE)

It’s Monday folk….soak it up.

Be well world.

HHHTerminators,

Generally on Sundays, the crew and I give you the option of Heaven or Hell (or neither, depending on the preceding night).  And well, normally I’m cool with those guidelines…however, where I’m at, we’re gettin Monday off so Sunday will continue BANGIN (more on that in a minute) so I’m leanin towards the hellish side of this post.  Nonetheless, I can’t be insensitive to my overseas counterparts who are currently dealing with a serious dose of Adventure from the Grandmaster himself.

So, here we go….somethin for column A and somethin for column B.

Heaven: For those that need to just chill the eff out with some cool ish.


As many of you know, Pete Rock and Ma Dukes have gotten together to release Dilla‘s first official (I don’t count the Illa J ish) Posthumous record.  With enough in his vault to battle 2Pac, I really hope that this isn’t the beginning of a long watering down process.  Already on the record, titled JAY STAY PAID, there are features that I’m just not comfortable with (Havoc of Mobb Deep?!?  I say NO DICE good sir.), but that being said, there are some features on here that just look amazing (Blu, Lil Fame, Black Thought).  So with that, I give you a preview of the record courtesy the World Famous Beat Junkies & Okayplayer.

Beat Junkies & J Dilla – Jay Stay Paid Album Sampler

And as a little bonus, here’s some newer ish from J Dilla’s fam and Aftermath’s newest songstress.

Slum Village – Cloud 9 (Feat. Marsha Ambrosius)

HELL: For those who feel like using Red matter tonight.

As we’ve been reporting for awhile, Freebass 808 is the ridiculous union of producer Apple Juice kid and Camp Lo’s Geechi Suede.  They’re dope.  Now, with what they’re calling an ‘Interactive Player’, these boys along with Tishaun Dawson of Battalion Armour are here to take things one step further.   5 New Freebass 808 tunes accompanied by full conceptual visuals…this is the future and I’m excited.

WATCH/LISTEN TO IT HERE

And as an added bonus, like I said in the last post, Kurupt‘s a beast.  And if you know me, you know I love myself some DJ Quik.  So to put the 2 together…..well, gosh darn if it isn’t just OBSCENE!

The first single off the upcoming BLAKQOUT album.  Some of the most inventive song structuring ever…not to mention the cadences….oh LORD!

For the homies in T.O. — It’s tonight.  Invite only.  PPF gettin their VIP on.   Let’s get it.
