While Homeboy Sandman was in London, England as part of his European tour, prolific Queens, New York the hailing rhymesmith dropped into the Shoreditch based SC:HQ for a catch-up. His Subject: Matter and Chimera EP just dropped along with Stones Throw LP First of a Living Breed not too far after. He then took the cameras out into the trendy East London streets for an exclusive performance of an unreleased track titled "Dag, Philly Too" produced by rthentic RTNC. This was a freestyle video shot in one take, now that's f@$! talent!

Apollo The Great wastes no time on this classic joint talking about the streets of New Jersey. This was just one of the bangers off his Apollo 21 LP which has features like Wale, Joell Ortiz, Freeway, Sean Price and Jon Connor just to name a few. It's been awhile since we've heard any new music from Apollo but his classics are timeless nevertheless.

Probably one of the dopest female Emcees of all time, but you probably never heard of her. Because she is so lyrical dope, dresses ethnically classy, and too black for the mainstream media. Until the majority of humans learn to embrace greatness like her, an artist like SA-ROC tends to remain in the shadows of underground HipHop World until 30 years later when society finally catches up. But trust me we will take HipHop serious here and pay homage to the superior artist while they are alive.

"Boom Bap Goon Rap" off of Ruste Juxx & Kyo Itachi's album 'Hardbodie Hip-Hop' is a real testament to Hardcore HipHop. This genre of rap music gets a bad rap at times but never the less this is where HipHop began. The street poets telling the stories most folks in the mainstream only read about in books and fairytales. For example "Rappers Delight" wasn't a true representation of our culture it was the first song that mainstream media was willing to accept at the time. But thanks to the internet and raw Emcees like Ruste who are helping to keep REal HipHop alive.

I had to dig in the crates for this classic, Termanology reminds me of Drake before he took over mainstream HipHop on this joint without the auto-tune. Statik is one of the old school DJ/Beatmaster who has always remain relevant over the years. He truly has some major bangers on his resume but here were love to shine the light on the material that's dope but didn't get the proper respect. This entire album was on some Big Daddy Kane smoothed out R&B sh#@!, check it out below and tell us what you think.
