 Radio B just releasd visuals to his new single "The Life" prod by NameBrand and video directed by Monsee.  This is just a tease of what this man can do, I almost past this one by, until I heard the lyrics then I was sold.  The dilemmas he's facing in this track I'm sure most rappers go through but many will never admit it.  Checkout the video below it's on some Real conscious Sh#@!

Young Reese Dude - "Ventilation" - Official Video Release
 Raysean aka Young Reese Dude is an HipHop artist based out of Dayton, Ohio where he was also born and raised.  Rapping since he was 13 yrs of age, he actually reminds me of a young B.I.G. and I'm not refering to his physical stature.  His style is very metaphorical which is a skill rarely used by artist these days.  It appears this young cat reads a lot or is really good at retaining information if you listen closely you will hear his intelligence.  Checkout this up and coming Emcee below.

Dashius Clay Releases Visuals For "Inside Hurt...Outside Smile" - VIDEO
 Dashius Clay just released visuals for his "Inside Hurt...Outside Smile" single and it's pretty retro.  Not necessarily my style of choice on the video, but the lyrics are razor sharp which is what is all about right?  I'm Old School it's all about Originality and Dope Lyrics, Dashius has them both.  Check below and watch my man do his thing.

Ninety One - "Golden Years" - New Audio Release
 Ninety One just released their 2nd LP Golden Years, this dynamic duo from France pays homage to that oldschool Boom Bap HipHop that we all love and miss.
The album features underground Emcees Hydroponikz, The 49ers, Rashid Hadee, Trace Blam, and Internal Quest just to name a few.  It's sad to say that other countries seem to appreciate our Gold Age of HipHop more than we.  I can't believe in 2013 Emcees are still using autotones WTF...!!  Well I have to show love to the Real Emcees the ones we have left anyway.  Checkout Ninety One, they on that dope S#@!

Olu Releases His New Single "Lucid Dreams" - AUDIO
 Right after dropping his full-length project Ordinary People, Olu is back and this time with "Lucid Dreams" which is on some smooth hypnotic type beat from Juhkel featuring samples from Yuna, I Love It..!!  I really like this dudes style very mellow but lyrics are still on point without changing his tone.  I liked it so much I went and downloaded his Ordinary People LP as well I put a sample of that below as well.  I like artist who are not afraid to be themselves and show respect to this art form we call HipHop, we need more Emcees like OluI'm not saying go bite his style just be yourself in the booth and the fans will respect you.  Why do you think a lot of people laughed at Rick Ross when it appeared someone was trying to kill him? Anyway let me get off my soapbox. Go check my man Olu out below he's the real deal.

 Another love song for you Love, I like this too it's pretty cool.  I have to realize that people love to be in love.  Other than the obvious, Da Camp is band of dope Emcees this is just one of songs they have I choose this one because it was around Valentines.  Ya'll let me know how you feel about this joint I'll try not to get to mushy on you.

Ma$e Talks To Sway In The Morning About Working For Diddy
 My man Ma$e appeared on Sway In The Morning for a little bit of Truth Or Dare, well more truth than dare.  He breaks down his relationship with Diddy and how the death of Nototious B.I.G. affected his career.  I like Ma$e, I liked him even more when he was Murder Ma$e eating rappers alive in the Battle Arena.  I'm sure Diddy had something to do with his "Softer" approach to HipHop once he was signed.  This was a pretty good interview I learned a lot and I'm sure ya'll will to. Enjoy..!!

Sadat X - "This Is Our Thing" (Ft. Pharoahe Monch & Phil G) - VIDEO
  New visuals for the first single "This Is Our Thing" is off Sadat X’s latest album entitled “Love, Hell Or Right” which you can get right HereHow much can you really say about Sadat X if  your a real HipHop fan you already know.  His body of work is Legendary, I'm always happy to see him do this thing.  It always makes me wonder if him and his Brand Nubian brethren will ever get back in the studio to do another album.  But in the meantime he is in good company, Pharoahe Monch is a Legend in the making.  I'm not too familiar with Phil G. but if he's spittin' bars with these two that definitely says a lot.  Checkout the video below its short and sweet.

J Dilla - "Anthem" (Ft. Frank N Dank) - New Audio Release

undefined Here’s an unreleased track by J Dilla set to be released on his upcoming album with vocal and production by himself as well as assistance from producers Madlib, Pete Rock, Houseshoes, Nottz and Karriem Riggins. This makes me wonder exactly how many artist out there have unfinished J Dilla material.  As long as it's coming from a good place I'm cool with it as long as J's family are benefiting as well.  This joint got me curious about what the rest of the album sound like because I wasn't too excited about "Anthem", but's J Dilla.  Ya'll let me know what you think.

Zo! x Tall Black Guy - "This Could Be The Night" (Ft. Phonte, Eric Roberson & Darien Brockington) - AUDIO

 This is too funny to me a lot of my favorite Rap Artist are getting their "LL" on this month, so now we have Zo! Tall Black Guy, Erro, Phonte and Darien releasing a fresh new remix which is set to be released on the upcoming Foreign Exchange Remix project entitled +FE Music: The Reworks, slated for a February 26th release. That project will be followed by “ManMade”, the next full-length album from Zo!  But before all of that they wanted to put out this teaser "This Could Be The Night" for all the HipHop dudes and gals in love ...nice  It actually ain't too bad...I really frown on some of the stuff they water down for LOVE, but this is pretty cool check it out below.

J. Cole - "Truly Yours " (FreEP) - AUDIO

J. Cole releases 5 new songs via his Dream Villain blog. I've heard this dude was talented but I wasn't a believer at first.  Now I can say if he keeps this up he will be the next Hova, no BS.  J. Cole can write most Emcees on the charts now into the ground with little effort.  We don't have many storytellers in the HipHop anymore but when J.Cole writes he's a very talented writer he could write books if he wanted to.  I'm sure he's probably ghost written for a few rappers by now.   I love the independent stuff he does, Truly Yours is definitely going to be Classic in about 10 years.  Checkout the Mixtape below.

Homeboy Sandman - "Not For Women" - AUDIO

 New Homeboy Sandman track produced by 6th Sense which was originally meant for his last album “First Of A Living Breed”. Sandman is getting prepared for his Europe tour in a few days I wish I could be there.  I love this new joint right here "Not For Women" which doesn't mean he don't like women.  He just simply saying he don't write rhymes for the soul purpose of getting Laid..Period..!!  And I definitely understand where he's comin' from, checkout the track below it has a Jazzy undertone very nice.

Marvwon, Noyz Denali & 11:23PM - "Dreamin" - (Prod. by SuperScrull) - AUDIO
 This is the first single off of the forthcoming production album by SuperScrull entitled "Castle Grey Scrull".  Marvwon of battle rap infamy; King of the Dot, Grind Time Now, URL Smack TV, WRC, and Jumpoff pretty much any league involving the Battle Rap World.  Joined by Marvwon for this song is Brain Kave Music Group's own Noyz Denali with that street flavor and 11:23PM of Brikaza Records.  This will be the first single of a compilation album produced by SuperScrull which will feature established artists in the industry along with new up and comings artist as well.  I love to see HipHop artist work together on projects like this, and it's great to see the Battle Rappers get some shine as well.  Some say Battle Rappers are one dimensional but look at Immortal Technique or KRS-One...exactly stop putting people in a box.  This song "Dreamin" is dope it definitely have some Lyrical Beast on this track, check it out below and tell us what you think.
