What can I say that hasn't been said about this album already, another 2016 LP slept on by the mainstream media. It started a little slow but after the third track it was "On like Donkey Kong". I really felt the presence of Phife Dawg on this LP as if he was still here with us. It felt more like a tribute album with all the legendary features, Busta Rhymes, Andre 3000, Consequence, Kanye, and Kendrick Lamar appearance was much appreciated.

Grammy award winning rapper Lupe Fiasco releases Jump feat. Gizzle via his own label 1st & 15th / Thirty Tigers today.
Jump, which features critically acclaimed female MC Gizzle and is produced by Lupe's long-time producer Soundtrakk (who produced Kick Push and Sunshine), was premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show. It is lifted from Lupe's forthcoming album Drogas Light (out Pick Up the Phone, Wild Child and Made In The U.S.A), which also features
Drogas Light is the first of a trilogy of albums (Drogas Light, Drogas and Skulls) which will see Lupe Fiasco reach his creative peak – the final curtain call on one of the most gifted lyricists and visionaries to grace the mic.
Featuring artists such as Ty Dolla $ign, Rick Ross and BIG K.R.I.T, Drogas Light is the first album release on Lupe's own label 1st & 15th/ Thirty Tigers. A testament to Fiasco’s artistic growth throughout the years, the 14 track LP provides a glimpse into the genius that will be Fiasco’s legacy as he inevitably walks away from the spotlight.

KA, another Brownsville Emcee (R.I.P. Sean Price) who hasn't got received his proper recognition as one of the greatest lyricist ever in HipHop. Don't get me wrong his music is not meant for everyone. REal HipHop enthusiast like myself who loves to decipher lyrics will love his body of work. He's on that same level as MF Doom with his rhymes and what he brings to the art. Maybe in 50 years the world will catch up in the meantime make sure you take a listen below.

I can appreciate Elzhi and recognize him as one of the most Elite but slept on Emcees. He say the kind the s#@! that makes you say "This is why I fell in love with HipHop!" On his new album “Lead Poison” , he effortlessly proves that he is one of the best lyricist in the game. After such a long wait, I was a little concerned because I’m such a lyric head. But as usual Elzhi never disappoints rhyming wise and the production is on point as well. Make sure ya'll go out and support REal HipHop below.
