Kavisuals for "Peace Akhi" off his album The Night’s Gambit His lyrical skills and messages can't be touched by most Emcees they way he mixes spoken work with rap is brilliant. In other words this guy is a beast , it's a shame artist don't get paid on how much talent they have. There wouldn't be many rappers in the game, your favorite rapper probably would be working at Wal-Mart. Check out the video below and tell us what you think.

I must say David Banner has evolved into a conscious lyrical beast. I wasn't originally a fan but that has changed, since his return to HipHop. David Banner is now one of my top 15 artist of all time, I believe if you ain't talkin' about something of substance, you're garbage. Don't take my word for it, sit back and watch Sway and David Banner talk about their ideologies for uplifting the black community.

Homeboy Sandman, was raised in Queens NY. Academic stints in New Hampshire, Philadelphia, London and Long Island. One semester short on two different graduate degrees. A couple of years of NYC Public School teaching thrown in there in between. 9th and 10th grades. Some bartending too, at the legendary Lennox Lounge in Harlem. That's where Shaft used to drink.
December 2006 he decides to cut all that miscellaneous nonsense and follow his passion. His first album came the following year.
Before signing to Stones Throw he'd already been chosen as a coach on MTV's MADE, featured in preeminent print hip-hop rags XXL and The Source, and perpetually championed on foremost online hubs. And since the signing, his accolades have extended beyond the realm of the hip hop specific. Rolling Stone has noted his "skill for wordplay that keeps you hooked." NPR has highlighted his "artful, hysterical, disobedient HipHop that you can dance to." Pitchfork has straightforwardly dubbed him "one of the best pure lyricists around." This is why we need to support real artist they are the foundation of HipHop.

As 2014 comes to a close and the number of indie "rappers" increases, Devine Carama decided to drop some gems for upcoming rappers. He remakes Biggie's classic "10 Crack Commandments" with his own version entitled "10 Blog Commandments". This serves as a do's & don't's tutorial for Emcees submitting their music to HipHop blogs & websites! This track was inspired by the late great HipHop proprietor Patrick McNease aka Praverb The Wyse.
