Ohio native JaH-Monte fka (King Callis) started writing music at the age of 10 however it wasn't until his teenage years that he started actually recording. His sound mirrors that of the late 90's Common Sense with a twist of Slum Village mixed with his own unique flow. The essence of REal HipHop is slowly but surely making a comeback thanks to artist like Jah-Monte. Remember without support this genre of HipHop wouldn't exist, support your local underground artist.

Killa Kyleon does his thing on this MC Hammer inspired track, David Stunts directed video for "2 Legited 2 Quit It," another dope freestyle off his 30 Days 30 Deaths project. Killa is one of the few hood dudes I f#@k's with and he always goes hard in the paint, and the bars are madd complex with dope metaphors.

Now I know I'm about a month late on this one but I was in the hospital for 22 days so forgive me but I wanted to make a important point about Jay-Z. First this is monumental because I have never featured a Jay-Z song or album on this site ever.
Second folks been raggin' on Jay because they think he switched up and he is being hypercritical I happen to disagree. Jay-Z subconsciously has always been a conscience person just not in his rhymes. Back in 2003 Jay released his 8th cd The Black Album, there is a track on the that album called Moment of Clarity.
He basically reveals himself and his scheme to get money fast in HipHop. Here is a piece of that track "I dumb down for my audience and double my dollars They criticize me for it yet they all yell "Holla" If skills sold truth be told I'd probably be lyrically Talib Kweli Truthfully I want to rhyme like Common Sense (But I did five Mil)I ain't been rhyming like Common since..."
You see now that Jay-Z is in a different tax bracket he can truly be an Emcee with meaning and purpose because he no longer makes a living as a artist. Even 2 Chains admitted the same during interviews with The Breakfast Club, and we know Lil Wayne is a very intelligent individual but unfortunately that's not where the REal money in HipHop is, isn't in the mainstream where the Mumble Rap is winning.

Thanks to Bernadette Price the wife of the late Sean Price, his legacy will live on forever. Sean only finished 4 tracks before he passed but like Tupac, Sean had mad hours of rhymes he recorded that was never released. Bernadette spent a couple months going through all of her husbands material picking out the perfect rhymes for the additional 12 tracks added. With the help of producer Dru Ha, Sean's right hand man they put together one of the dopest Sean Price album of all time. Even Jay-Z paid homage to the late great Emcee calling Sean Price one of his top 5.
