Majesty Mell - "Still Amazing" - {Video}


Majesty Mell is a NYC based HipHop Artist/Emcee, he just released visuals for his new single "Still Amazing" off his upcoming EP "Hollows N Dum Dums" which was directed and edited by him as well.  Majesty is a great example of what you must do in order to be successful as a HipHop artist today.  No longer are record companies offering large sums of money to finance your career.  In fact you must have a finished project, your own fan base, a huge Buz , and practically a #1 single to even be considered for an offer from record company.  So tell me why do you need the record label if you have all of those things in place? I'm sorry I went into "Teacher Mode", checkout what a REal HipHop artist sound like below, this dude right here got some serious Bars.

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.

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. 



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

'It's Just Begun' (Instrumental)

CanonGang Presents: Josh Bliss - "Mind F**K" (Prod. By The Cratez) - {Video}

Inline image 1
There has been a saying floating around for many years that Southern Emcees lyrically can't compete with Emcees from the East Coast.  Most of the time we remember our favorite Southern Emcees from their dope beats and catchy hooks.  Well Josh Bliss is here to put a stop to all of that noise, originally from Louisiana Josh currently lives in Massachusetts where he is definitely making a name for himself in the Underground HipHop scene. Josh is one of the many Southern Emcees who is dope but never get credit because they are not making those "Whack" mainstream tracks.  These guys have been underground for years and its time we recognize them for the "Lyrical Beast" they are and Josh Bliss is on the forefront of this movement. Check him out below and you will see what I mean.

California Emcee & Songwriter Anterluzjust released his new album called "The Ritz".

Everything from the mixing of different genre beats together, to the conscious dope lyrics makes it a great project.  You would say to yourself why isn't this on "The Radio", well because most of the radio stations are not owned by people who love and appreciate REal HipHop. This people is HipHop in one of its rawest forms, make sure you go out and support artist like Anterluz to help keep the culture alive. Remember HipHop is NOT dead it's Underground.

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

ab-soul
 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.
