Rapper Big Pooh - "Augmentation" (Prod by Apollo Brown) - {Official Video}


You can hear just hear his pain on "Words Paint Pictures", Big Pooh’s debut release for Mello Music Group. The North Carolina native captures the complex agonies of the human condition, specifically the black experience in America over the last several centuries. These are tales of racial profiling and corrupt politicians, reality TV distractions, thieving preachers and rapacious exploitation. Big Pooh as always been a no nonsense type of Emcee even back during his Little Brother days.  REal HipHop heads are glad to see him back and doing what he was destine to do, make sure y'all go support real music.

Fab Soares - "Nothing but rhymes" - {Audio}


Fab Soares contains a classic old school HipHop style that comes with a charismatic delivery and entertaining lyrics. Viewers can always get a strong feel for Fab Soares's personal style and also seeing a great glimpse of his character. 

Fab's EP entitled "Nothing but rhymes" is a project for the underground HipHop audience.  I'd like to say the main stream too but let's face it they are not rocking anything REal.  Remember when we support the artist we love they are able to give us more.  For a revolution we need restitution.

Drew Dave - "Full Circle" - {Video}

Producer Drew Dave visuals to his first track Full Circle”, off his debut album on Mello Music Group Label. Which wasn't too long ago, I remember thinking wow some kats still fight to keep REal HipHop alive....great.  I may be a little bias because he is from the DMV like myself but when I heard that yU recommended him to MMG I just knew he was the real deal.

Joey Bada$$ - "Like Me" - {Official Video}


One thing I can say about Joey Bada$$, he is proof that every 20 years we get some really dope Emcees.  This is evidence that true artist are born not manufactured, 1999 was the year Mos Def released his solo album ironically it was the same title as Joey's mixtape.  If you don't know anything about Joey Bada$$ it's probably because you still listen to that garbage on the radio "they" call HipHop.  Do yourself and REal HipHip a favor and turn that S#@! off.  Between Black Hippy in the West and Pro Era in the East, Real HipHop is about to take over the mainstream.

The legendary Emcee/Producer Large Professor aka Xtra P, drops some visuals for his b-side single off the “In The Scrolls”12 Inch record. “Own World” is on Large Professor’s LP  “Re:Living” which should be dropped not to long ago. If you don't know who Large Professor, then you're not a true HipHop Head, he's the man behind the album Illmatic and Nas's mentor.

Axel F. (JRocc&MED) - "Searching" - {Official Video}


This joint from the always dope J. Rocc & MED better known as Axel F, off their group album“Theme Music” is one of my favorite underground cuts.  No one really puts it down like this anymore with those fly jazz loops in the background.  Checkout the visuals for "Searching" and tell us what do you think.

Cam'ron & A-Trak - "Dipsh*ts" - {Official Video}


A-Trak and Cam'ron are back at it again with "Dipsh*ts" featuring uncut Cam'ron slick talk over triumphant instrumental blasts  also produced by Just Blaze.  Reppin' Dipset,  Juelz Santana on the hook, Jim Jones with a cameo appearance  and "Champagne Dame" (aka Federal Reserve executive producer Damon Dash) providing a legendary song closing rant, you know how he do.  Just another dope joint from Cam, he releases dope singles and EP's then he dips out of the lime light like, "Keyser Söze" off the The Usual Suspects.  I'm still hoping for a Dipset reunion album...lets keep our fingers cross.

Lyfe Jennings - "Pretty Is" - {Official Video}

 Lyfe Jennings single, "Pretty Is" from his sixth studio album, Tree Of Lyfe. This song celebrates all women by empowering them with the notion true beauty is within.  Back in 2004, Lyfe captivated countless listeners worldwide with his seminal platinum-selling debut Lyfe 268-192. Since then, the singer and songwriter created four more critically acclaimed albums.  He's the only R&B singer who consistently sing about conscious issues he NEVER compromises his image or message to make a dollar.  Now that's a REal artist who chooses to go the right way instead of the easy route.

Oddisee - "The Good Fight" - {Audio}


In a landscape overrun with over indulgence and shallow trend-chasers, the Prince George’s County, Maryland artist Oddisee creates "The Good Fight", a record that reminds you that it’s music before it’s HipHop.  Not many artist are capable of reinventing themselves with each new album, but that it what separates Oddisee from most Emcees.  Checkout is this oldie but goodie below and don't forget to support your local underground artist.

Keaton Henson - "Teach Me" - {Official Video}

http://25.media.tumblr.com/a647bc483ab1ff0dcb15e248472b0714/tumblr_mkh55wjIIh1r4rzswo1_500.jpg
Keaton Henson's stunning second album, "Birthdays", is a follow-up to 2012’s critically acclaimed "Dear...".  At just 24 years old, Keaton Henson’s songs, artwork and poetry are known by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Yet he is a virtual stranger, whose anonymity is no accident. Keaton has never posted on social networks, has not played live until very recently, and barely leaves his hometown or his bedroom. If you wanted him you’d have had to find him as many fans did for instance during "Gloaming" the celebrated exhibition of Keaton’s illustrative work, which saw him play one-on-one for each attendee within a dollhouse.  But whilst he may be delicate, this is no wallflower: Keaton’s songs are as brutal as they are beautiful.  This is a very strange video but song is ever so beautiful.

Steph Jones - "Southern Love" - {Official Video}

This is one of favorite joints from a few years ago, Steph Jones is a very talented singer now turned fitness guru and life coach.  Some may think he was crazy for leaving the music business behind, but in life you have to do what makes you happy.  Almost sounding like a young Maxwell on this joint right here, this is a great song.

Red Pill - "Ten Year Party" - {Official Video}

Red Pill visuals for his single "Ten Year Party", takes me back to when mainstream HipHop was more diverse.  What ever happen to being yourself?  What ever happen to if you sounded like some other Emcee you would get no airplay or support? Man.. how things have changed, anyway Mello Music Group is practically keeping REal HipHop alive.  We have more dope sh$! coming out of Mello Music camp just wait and see.

The Black Opera - "Queen Of Hearts" (Ft Mayer Hawthorne) - {Audio}


  One of my favorite albums by The Black Opera is "Queen of Hearts" off at XXL for Valentine's Day.  The track is a mellow introspective rundown of all the things that "She" is, or could be, to her King.  Who is "She"?  Decide for yourself.  The Black Opera and fellow creator Mayer Hawthorne, who is featured on the hook of this track, each have their own interpretation of the perfect "Queen of Hearts".
Mayer Hawthorne, who has coined his new-school Motown sound, adds a spicy eloquence to the track while the TBOG's speak on who their ideal Queen is, and who she isn't.  Lines like "She could be my Queen to be" are greatly opposed by others such as "Im not tryina make a hoe a baby momma, drama".  This song is more than your average Valentine's Day bullshit.  Treat your girl to the MP3 of "Queen of Hearts", not dinner at the Sizzler tonight, player.
Message From The Black Opera:

"While in search of his Queen of Hearts, or some would say, KUEENZ of Heart, the King was not very trusting with any of his beautiful possibilities.  Once he learned how to trust himself, then and only then, was he able to trust and L O V E Without A Limit."

The Four Owls - "Silent Flight" - {Official Video}


When The Four Owls dropped "Silent Flight" off their album"Natural Order" I didn't feel it got the recognition it deserved.  Producer Leaf Dog did his thing with a little help from DJ Premier and features from Dirty Dike, Jam Baxter, Smellington Piff & DJ and Sammy B-Side. There was a question online the other day, "Are UK Rappers Better Lyricist?".  My answer is not necessarily, remember HipHop started in New York back in the 70's since then our mainstream HipHop has been corrupted by big corporations.  So in other words it's like the UK artist are going through their 90's Era/Golden Age oF HipHop and their culture have not been contaminated by the corporate execs as much as ours has.  Not all US artist are caught in The Matrix we still have artist like CommonKendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Lupe Fiasco, Chance The Rapper and J. Cole just to name a few, holding down REal HipHop in the Mainstream.  But our Underground HipHop are on the same level as the UK's mainstream.

Neph - "Viceroy" (Ft. Prevail Wonder) - {Official Video}

Neph & Prevail Wonder are a perfect example of some REal HipHop S#@!!, I just love when real talent comes together to create something awesome.  Make sure you support your local Emcees who represents uplifting the community not exploiting it for personal gain.  With the help from producers Rob The Viking and Devy-D, this track will be in heavy rotation on my playlist.

It's not everyday you meet Emcees quite like those from New York, especially in underground HipHop. On this first UHH Cypher we have Kid Named NOVA, Chocolate Brown, and Phreshh Phleaux, I sware NY is the only place where you have several different genres of HipHop in the same city.  This is one of the illiest cyphers I've heard in awhile, check them out below and tell us what do you think.

Eric Lau - "The Mission" EP - {Audio}


Eric Lau is a British music producer and DJ from London. His production style is characterized by heavy drums, often unrecognizable samples and a mixture of live and sequenced instrumentation.
He first gained exposure with the song "Im Fine" featuring Rahel on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Bubblers (Part 4).  This is one of my favorite EPs released by Eric, I hope you guys like it too.

A Day In The Life Of Rav. P - {Video}

After opening up for Joel Ortiz on the Human tour at Santos House NYC, Rav.P put out this dope freestyle over a Alchemist beat just for the hell of it.  How many Emcees do you know who goes out of their way just to be themselves?  Well that's the kind of Emcee Rav.P is take it or leave he yields to no other trend by himself.

Beat Making With DJ Duff - "Ace In The Hole" - {Video}

 I just found this young Beatsmith DJ Duff or J Duff if he's on the Mic.  I must say this guy have skills and I wanted to shine some light on him.  Checkout the video below showing all of you inspiring producers the art of making a beat from scratch.  I used to make beats myself when I first started my path in HipHop over ten years ago.  I made beats on my PS2 and sold them on tapes not cd's for 60.00 a pop...lol.  Wow...the good old days ok let me get off my "Back Down Memory Lane" rant, checkout DJ Duff below and watch him work.

Mic-Key Boston & XEptional “Clone Locusts & Genetic Machinery” - {Audio}

After two full years of hiatus in the desert, Mic-Key Boston returns as Robotic Geneticist, Dr. Kovaks in his very first EP entitled Clone Locusts & Genetic Machinery. An EP entirely produced by young prodigy XEptional, MicKey Boston provides what is a narrative EP.
Hardbody boombap narrative is behind the science fiction of MicKey Boston’s debut EP offering. Morals and ethics of genetic engineering are the schism within the mental state of Dr. Kovaks.
As a veteran Emcee, Mickey Boston has finally release his solo duo debut EP despite having marked a notable presence on all six tracks of his HipHop group's, Journeymen, debut EP entitled Pledge of the Respirator which was entirely produced by veteran Emcee/Producer, John Wholetrain

Eric Roberson - "Shake Her Hand" - (Official Video)

http://stupiddope.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Eric-Roberson.jpg 
"Shake Her Hand" is off of the Mister Nice Guy album directed by Spectrum LDN 123.  Eric Roberson is probably one of the last true Soul Singers. He definitely has made his mark in the Neo-Soul genre despite not having the same exposure as Maxwell or D'angleo.  

I've witnessed him on several occasions freestyle original songs using words from the audience, he's definitely a talented brotha.  Checkout one of his singles below, I'm sure there are men out there (myself included) who can relate to this type of situation at least once in their lifetime.

Harvvv - "Blue Skies" (Ft. Sherelyn) - {Audio}

As we bring the weekend to a close, I just had to feature this artist coming out of Houston name Harvvv.  His single"Blue Skies" featuring songstress Sherelyn is a pretty dope little love song.  Now I must admit I'm not a big fan of the love songs but every now and then one comes along I can chill to like this one.

Georgia Black - "Will I Be Waiting" - {Official Video}

The sexuality of women is a theme now openly addressed by the Music Industry. Female singers can divulge, in stimulating detail, their raunchy experiences and lustful desires, generally without being ostracised by a bigoted media. Yet what still remains a mere whisper, is the rife sexual exploitation that women working in the arts continue to endure.

Enter Georgia Black, whose new video ‘Will I Be Waiting’ confronts the hyper sexualisation of women in the media today, particularly within the music and fashion industries, head on. Using her own body as a tool for exploration, Black delves into this uncertain territory. 

Every woman has the right to express their sexuality, but often it can be manipulated to suit the demands of the industry and, in turn, female desire becomes neglected. With a hint of dark irony and the inclusion of the video’s very own director, Black teeters upon the thin line that separates her own sexuality from its objectification.

Breeze Embalm - "Los Muertos" (Ft. Amanda Maxine) - {Audio}

Every now and then you get an Emcee who comes out of nowhere with a sound so unique yet familiar, you can't ignore it.  Breeze is one of those Emcees, if you close your eyes you can hear the Jay-Z influence in his rhymes, but with his own flavor.  I'm cool with that it's HipHop, where the music was originally created spittin' over R&B classics.  James Brown's estate should be worth a billion dollars as much as his voice and music have been sampled.

Old Man Elephant - "Free Air" EP - {Audio}


Old Man Elephant is a duo out of Clayton, North Carolina, heir music consists of a unique mixture of trap, classic soul, and modern indie. Their EP entitled Free Air EP portrays a variety of influences ranging from Stevie Wonder, James Brown and Kanye West.  You will not find too many eclectic EP's like this one, OME are definitely creating their own lane in music.

Thundercat - "Oh Sheit X" (Prod by Flying Lotus) - {Audio}


 More music from Thundercat off his album “Apocalypse” which dropped on the Brainfeeder label.  This is what I call a true musician which is a dying breed these days.

Sa-Roc - "True Mastery" - {Official Video}


One of the dopest Emcees in HipHop, yet you  probably have never heard of her.  Sa-Roc is the perfect example of a poet-emcee, she lives what she spits.  Not depending on her sexuality to sell records or to get recognition.  That right there is something most new artist don't seem to understand, you are only going to get so far in"The Game" and no one is going to take you serious.  In the long run it's all about integrity and respect for yourself and the Art of HipHop.

Displaying AFTER THE IRONY  Official Cover.jpg

Visuals for Queens, N.Y. Emcee Ronnie Brown's "Something for The Train" song which features lovely vocals by Queens, N.Y. Emcee/Songstress Erica Kane. Be sure to download "After THE IRONY" at ronniebrownmusic.bandcamp.com to get this song and more!!!

Sometimes people are so quick to judge a person and you may not know what they might be going through. As a NYC native and subway rider I witness this judgement happen all of the time. If there's one thing you notice when you ride the train is every ear is filled with headphones, and for that short time of traveling people have no worries.
This video is to encourage others to know that no matter how hard things may get, keep your head up and get right back on track and ride the train of life until the wheels for off!

Heltah Skeltah - "Throwback Freestyle - {Video}

For all my HipHop Heads out there who remember Heltah Skeltah know the sound of REal Rap Music. Rock & Sean P. had enough lyrical content, charisma, and chemistry to compete in the same arena as Red & Meth. This freestyle alone shows you how much potential they had together before my homeboy Sean Price transcended.

R.A. the Rugged Man - "Still Get Through The Day" (Ft. Eamon) - {Video}

R.A. the Rugged Man is one of the dopest lyricist in HipHop, unfortunately most of us will never know it.  R.A.'s taking rap back during a time when lyrics told stories of murder, sex, religion, partying and all promoted equally.  But the corporate machine only pushes the songs that keep us dumb, blind and stupid.  That's my problem with FM radio stations that only support "Mumble Rap".  I fight to keep the tables balanced and true even though the corporations has the financial advantage.

This project is a follow up to his J Dilla inspired project which lead to his collab with producer LJ Milan and this downtempo beat with Starr's laidback flow.  This has jazz club feel to it, one of those joints you could play for your lady...dope.

L'Orange & Kool Keith - "Time? Astonishing!" - {Audio}



If there’s a secret to time travel, Kool Keith owns the patent. Even a flying DeLorean seems too conventional for the Bronx legend. He’d more logically orbit throughout the galaxy in a gleaming chrome spaceship, teaching the stars and aliens new forms of originality. He is too weird to live, too rare to die, too uniquely ultra-magnetic to be accurately mimicked. 

Released on Mello Music Group, "Time? Astonishing!" is the latest dimensional warp from HipHop’s premiere astral traveler. His union with MMG producer L’ Orange finds him exploring uncharted terrain: choppy volcanic rock planets, ice glacier moons, new surgical procedures, and fresh rappers to toss into the ether. The scalpel remains eternally sharp.   Now this is HipHop at it's best checkout the LP below.

Lianne La Havas - "Unstoppable" - {Official Video}


Lianne La Havas is one of my favorite female vocalist, she's like a Sade/Lauryn Hill hybrid.  Her talents are very versatile between playing the guitar, dancing, writing, and singing she's the total package.  Her forthcoming LP "Blood" was released not to long ago. Make sure ya'll check her out...she's pretty dope.

Action Bronson - "All You Need" (Ft. Ab-Soul & Elle Varner) - {Audio}


One of my favorite underground artist Action Bronson, never disappoints his fans.  In this collaboration with Elle Varner and Ab-Soul he proves once again why he's one of the dopest lyricist in the game.  Folks still whinin' that he sounds like GhostFace Killa, maybe a little but I can tell the difference any REal HipHop head would.  "Lucky 7," out July 7th, 2015. Pre-order the album at iTunes and you'll instantly receive this track - Here.

Brand Nubian - "Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down" - {Official Throwback Video}

I went to an Open-Mic Night spot this past weekend and wow people really don't know what REal HipHop sounds like.  I feel as though we need to separate the different genres of HipHop.  The latest rap sub-genre is Mumble Rap, well I feel we need a category with that name at the award shows.  I was so disappointed from that experience I decided to feature REal HipHop groups from the Golden Era starting this week.  Brand Nubian is this weeks feature, just to remind us of our roots and hopefully help influence new Emcees to be more created.

Jo Mersa Marley - "Rock and Swing" - {Official Video}

In recent years I've notice the offspring of the offsprings of Bob Marley has picked up the baton and carrying on the family legacy.  Jo Mersa is Stephen Marley's eldest son and I must say he doesn't sound to bad.  All the essence of Bob Marley with a modern twist on Reggae music.  Before HipHop we had Reggae the origin of spittin' Hot Fire over a bass beat.
