New Life - "Fast Enough" - {Video}

Inline image 1
Fast Enough encompasses the overall feeling of Dark Matter as a project overall, an exploration of sounds and styles within HipHop with a down-tempo eerie, yet darker tone. New Life is usually known for producing positive and uplifting music similar to their first EP release, "A New Beginning" but on Dark Matter, it appears they have choose to embrace "The Dark Side" of the force.

DJ Doom & Nutso 'It's Just Begun" (Ft.Large Professor, Tony Touch & El Da Sensei) - {Audio} 
It's been just over 2 years since the passing of legendary recording artist Jimmy Castor. To mark this occasion, Blunted Astronaut and DJ Doom are proud to present a very special tribute to one of the most important B-Boy anthems of all time - the 1970 funk masterpiece "It's Just Begun".

Hailing from Brooklyn, NYC, Doom has been immersed in HipHop culture since the days of his youth in the early 1980's. Graffiti writer, B-Boy, DJ, producer, there's not a lot the man hasn't done! On this third BA release, he teams up with Nutso for a truly unique project, revisiting a timeless classic that carries forward the musical legacy of the late, great, Jimmy Castor for years to come.

His trusty SP1200 is once again put to work, and with guest appearances by Large Professor, Tony Touch and El Da Sensei (The Artifacts) this limited 7” is guaranteed to be another Blunted Astronaut sure shot.

It's also worth noting that the label artwork (by Mr. Krum) is inspired by the layout and typesetting of the U.S. 45 on Kinetic the much treasured 'original' version. This is not for the average HipHop fan but the Go Hard type of person who really know and respect foundation.
Checkout the mix below it truly represents HipHop in it's birth years. 

Side A:
'It's Just Begun'
Produced by DJ Doom.
Written by Nutso, Large Professor, Tony Touch & El Da Sensei.

Ab-Soul - “ILLuminate” (Ft. Kendrick Lamar - {Video}

 Ab-Soul, released Control System in May of 2012 and the album was lauded as one of the strongest projects from Top Dawg Entertainment and the Black Hippy crew, which includes Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar.
One of the many strong cuts from the album “ILLuminate” featuring hip hop’s man of the moment and fellow Black Hippy member Kendrick Lamar receives the visual treatment courtesy of directors Fredo Tovar and Scott Fleishman.  I really wasn't feeling Ab-Soul when he first hit the scene but then I realize this dude has bars.  I guess I was comparing him too much to Kendrick who has bars for days he's a freakin prodigy in the game.  This is one of my favorite cuts off the album I'm glad they chose this cut to make a video for.  Check it out below.
