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.

HHHTwin Bliss,

Today it’s about quantity as much as it is about quality (I think).

Double the artists with double the tunes?  Get live.

ESCOBAR & JR. GONG

The debut of God’s Son and Bob’s Son on HHHT.  The first song I heard from these two left me really unexcited.   However this one?  Much more excited now.

Off the upcoming ‘Distant Relatives’:

NAS & DAMIAN MARLEY – AS WE ENTER

DEADRINGER & TIGGALO

The man who revolutionized the instrumental game teams up with the man who redefined what an online relationship could be to bring you this smoothed out ditty.

The Colossus is shaping up to be nicety nice.

RJD2 Feat. PHONTE – THE SHINING PATH

JUMPOFF & NICKELNINE

Slaughterhouse is dope.  That’s my word.  From rivals to teammates, 1/2 of the Neo-Horsemen are back and they absolutely mangle this.

Do you have a rocket launcher?

JOE BUDDEN Feat. ROYCE DA 5’9″ – 40/40

MISSISSIPPI & NORTH CAKALAK

Strictly from a Hip-Hop perspective, 9th Wonder might have the most diverse clientele list in the game.  With a catalogue that ranges from Murs to Jay-Z, Ludacris to Little Brother, De La to M.O.P., there’s no question 9th has accomplished a lot in his short time in the game.

Now, with a new team up with Mississippi General, David Banner, he continues his quest to produce for everyone in hip-hop.

9th WONDER & DAVID BANNER – SLOW DOWN

G.O.O.D.

Not much to say other than Kanye with his British muse.  I’m still undecided about Mr. Hudson but this tune’s alright.

MR. HUDSON Feat. KANYE WEST – ANYONE BUT HIM

CAN’TSTANDYA!

Finally, I don’t know who Sene is but he sounds good, and Von Pea‘s a damn beast.   Enjoy.

SENE Feat. VON PEA – CANTSTANDYA

Get ta downloadin folk!

3 Days to Taipei.

Be ease.

HHHTrack Terrorists,

LOUDER

In the past 6 years, there have been few other producers/DJ’s who’ve accomplished more than Florida (or Philadelphia, depending on who you ask) native, Diplo.

From hit singles with ex-muse M.I.A. to the success of his own record label, Mad Decent all the way down to becoming the remix darling of damn near every major label and their subsidiaries, Diplo‘s ruining faces and doin it with an almost unparalleled consistency.  Combining his love of Baile Funk with damn near every other genre out, like him or not, Diplo has somehow managed to carve out a place for himself that is both unique and exciting and for that, I have nothing but respect.

Now, thanks to HHHT general Marcus Aurelius, Diplo will be finding his way to Taipei for a one night extravaganza and I sincerely insist your attendance.  It’s rare that Taiwan gets someone of this caliber, and the chances of a return may be slim unless we ram the place.  So Taiwan, book off your Friday, shine up your shoes, and let’s do this. And just to get you excited….some brand new free dope from the man himself.

DIPLO Presents FREE GUCCI – BEST OF THE COLD WAR MIXTAPES

I AIN’T TALKIN ORENTHAL OR GENE SIMMONS

Madlib and Guilty are back with some new ish.  I can’t wait for this shit to finally drop.

O.J. SIMPSON – BEFORE THE VERDICT

O.J. SIMPSON – KILL’EM (REMIX)

LET THERE BE HORNS

And finally, the homeboy RJD2 is gearing up the promo for his brand new record, The Colossus, and I can only imagine you’ll be catching a lot more of his ish here on HHHT.

The first official single off the new record….enjoy.

RJD2 – LET THERE BE HORNS

It’s a good day, let’s get grimy.

Be well world.

HHHTurn it UP!

It’s been a long time coming, but I present to you part 2 of the Give the Drummer Some series.

DOOM

I don’t know that I really have anymore to say about this guy that isn’t already known.  Through his unorthodox lyrics, unrelenting cadences and undying love for sampling your favorite Saturday morning cartoon theme songs, he’s managed to stay in peoples ears and mouths for so long and so consistently that he is to hip-hop what the hum of the refrigerator is to your daily white noise intake — I hope that makes sense.  In other words, hip-hop without DOOM would just be down right weird.

Now DOOMposter scandal aside, he’s managed to consistently release quality records at a feverish pace and even when some fans (myself included) were starting to get sick of the formula, he came and hit back with ‘Born Like This’ which on the surface seemed like standard DOOM, but somehow managed to be far meatier than anything he’d released in quite some time — at least that’s how I felt.  Now, with another brand new release entitled ‘Unexpected Guests’, DOOM’s back and DOOM’ish as ever.  Check the album teaser above, and check the MPFree below.  Regardless of who you are or where you’re from, there’s bound to be one DOOM song somewhere out there that you love.  I know it.

DOOM – BELLS OF DOOM (Direct Link)

RJD2

I am, and have always been a huge fan of RJ.

From the time I heard Final Frontier w/ Blueprint back in ’02 (off Deadringer) to getting my heart broken by ‘Making Days Longer’ in ’04 (off Since We Last Spoke) to the jarring direction he took with the entire ‘The Third Hand’ album in ’07, I’ve been happy with what RJ has provided me as a fan.

He’s somehow managed the extremely difficult task of taking himself out of the box that he was so quickly thrown in after Deadringer’s unexpected success and, although may not be as popular as he was when he first dropped, has continued to work very hard at reinventing himself every time he resurfaces, even if that means pissing off the same people that pay his mortgage.

Now, after a 3 year hiatus, the ex-Def Jukie and ex-XL recording artist is back with his own label and preparing the release of his 4th full-length studio album entitled ‘The Colossus’. HHHT is proud to bring you the first leak off the record and I must say, I enjoy it quite a bit.  Whaddyou think?

RJD2 ft. KENNA – GAMES YOU CAN WIN

SUNCLEF

Sunclef is one of the best producers you’ve never heard of.

Beginning with Cello lessons at 3, chamber groups at 11, then bass at 13, Sunclef is not your average hip-hop producer.  A man who is generally light with words, but extremely heavy with mood and vibe, the bio on his website says it all: ‘A wise man once said “Less bunk, more funk.”‘ And really, that’s him in a nutshell.  But even beyond that, what he brings to the table that most other hip-hop producers don’t (but really should) is musicianship.  An understanding of music spanning genres and eras that only lend to his ability of being able to adapt, adjust and create something original while still being familiar.   That, coupled with an almost detrimental necessity for improvement and you have PPF House‘s resident monster.

Having had the opportunity to work with him first hand, I can tell you that few people hear the way he does or has as good a natural instinct.  On top of being a dope producer, he’s also a talented studio engineer, graphic designer and just a generally dope guy to be around.  He’s currently working on several projects with several different artists from all genres and 2010 promises to be an eventful year for this studio rat.

Combining elements of DJ Quik’s funk, Dilla’s mid 90’s jazz sensibilities and a love of all things that bounce, ladies and gentlemen, I give you….Sunclef.

Check out his most recent release from earlier this year as well as his MySpace that has a small collection of old and new.

LEO37 + SUNCLEF – APPLAUSE

It’s Friday people…..go get it.
