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?

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.

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.

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.
