Chelsea Reject - "47" (Ft. Kirk Knight & Tnah Apex) - {Audio}

Chelsea Reject is a 23-year old female Emcee coming out of Brooklyn, NY by way of St. Lucia. She just recently partnered with one of the dopest indie labels formerly ran by the late great Sean Price (R.I.P),Duck Down Music.  Her latest project, CMPLX is still gettin' heavy rotation in my whip.  Not too many female Emcees catch my attention these days since most of them want to sell sex instead possessing real talent. Listen to her below if you are a REal HipHop Head you will appreciate her skills on the mic just as much as we do.
Not one to be afraid of being weird, different, or complex, The REJECT is contagious! Chelsea Reject

JaH-Monte FKA (King Callis) - "KWAHERI UPENDO" - {Audio}

Ohio native JaH-Monte fka (King Callis) started writing music at the age of 10 however it wasn't until his teenage years that he started actually recording.  His sound mirrors that of the late 90's Common Sense with a twist of Slum Village mixed with his own unique flow.  The essence of REal HipHop is slowly but surely making a comeback thanks to artist like Jah-Monte.  Remember without support this genre of HipHop wouldn't exist, support your local underground artist.

Killa Kyleon does his thing on this MC Hammer inspired track, David Stunts directed video for "2 Legited 2 Quit It," another dope freestyle off his 30 Days 30 Deaths project.  Killa is one of the few hood dudes I f#@k's with and he always goes hard in the paint, and the bars are madd complex with dope metaphors.

Jay-Z - "The Story Of O.J." - {Official Video}

Now I know I'm about a month late on this one but I was in the hospital for 22 days so forgive me but I wanted to make a important point about Jay-Z.  First this is monumental because I have never featured a Jay-Z song or album on this site ever. 

Second folks been raggin' on Jay because they think he switched up and he is being hypercritical I happen to disagree.  Jay-Z subconsciously has always been a conscience person just not in his rhymes.  Back in 2003 Jay released his 8th cd The Black Album, there is a track on the that album called Moment of Clarity.  
He basically reveals himself and his scheme to get money fast in HipHop.  Here is a piece of that track "I dumb down for my audience and double my dollars They criticize me for it yet they all yell "Holla" If skills sold truth be told I'd probably be lyrically Talib Kweli Truthfully I want to rhyme like Common Sense (But I did five Mil)I ain't been rhyming like Common since..."  
You see now that Jay-Z is in a different tax bracket he can truly be an Emcee with meaning and purpose because he no longer makes a living as a artist.  Even 2 Chains admitted the same during interviews with The Breakfast Club, and we know Lil Wayne is a very intelligent individual but unfortunately that's not where the REal money in HipHop is, isn't in the mainstream where the Mumble Rap is winning.

Sean Price - "Imperius Rex" - {Official Video}

Thanks to Bernadette Price the wife of the late Sean Price, his legacy will live on forever.  Sean only finished 4 tracks before he passed but like Tupac, Sean had mad hours of rhymes he recorded that was never released.  Bernadette spent a couple months going through all of her husbands material picking out the perfect rhymes for the additional 12 tracks added.  With the help of producer Dru Ha, Sean's right hand man they put together one of the dopest Sean Price album of all time.  Even Jay-Z paid homage to the late great Emcee calling Sean Price one of his top 5.

Oddisee - "You Know Who You Are" (Ft. Olivier Daysoul) - {Video}

What else can I say about Oddisee that already hasn't been said, not much but he is the last of a dying breed A REal Emcee.  What can I say about Olivier Daysoul, one of the best guitarist/vocalist in HipHop and beyond.  This is one of a few joints they do together, they literally can form their own duo, the chemistry between them is that great.  Oddisee has been representing the DMV for a long time now, it's about time the world gets the privilege of being blessed with the talent of Oddisee and Olivier. Don't believe me just watch....below.

Freddc. - "Falseones" (Ft. Devine Carama) - {Audio}

Freddc. teams up with one another one of my favorite underground Emcees Devine Carama for this dope classic.  Devine don't team up with many rappers so for him to be on this calab with Freddc. lets you know that he's the truth.  This is what real HipHop sounds like my people, listen and learn.

Detroit native D.Focis takes a moment to pen an open letter to his favorite artist Kanye West.  As a Kanye fan myself I'm feelin' what D is saying, it appears the "Evil Corporation Syndicate" has got a hold of one of HipHop's most influential Emcees. With DF Visuals directing and Tim Smith on photography this video was set for greatness. The end of the video showcases a portion of D's next single "Honor" which really highlights his lyrical skills.

Method Man & Redman - "Lookin' Fly Too" (Ft. Ready Roc) - {Video}

You can never go wrong with a Red & Meth track, you know their bars will always be on point.  Now I'm not going to lie I wasn't feelin' the auto-tune hook Redman did.  Being that I'm from the East coast I feel only West coast Emcees like Snoop Dogg can successfully use auto-tune without questioning their integrity.  

So my question is why did Redman do it?  Or was it the producer and how does Method Man feel about it?  It's obvious they are not trying to appeal to a younger audience, so who told them their hardcore fans would like this?  It's obvious you can tell I hate auto-tune, I feel if used only singers should use it and even then very little as background vocals similar Roger & Zapp.

Talib Kweli - "State of Grace" (Ft. Abby Dobson) - {Official Video}

Talib Kweli is probably one of the dopest Emcees to ever pick up a microphone.  Even Jay-Z recognizes that Talib lyrical skills are superior to his own.  Kanye gave props to Talib for taking him on his first tour as a rapper.  I can't tell you the countless amount of singers Talib Kweli has introduced to the world.  On this project he is featuring the lovely songstress Abby Dobson along with the dreambear. team who are responsible for the dope animation below.

When there's no where to move and he shoots
(rrrrat!) you're done

FKA twigs - "Papi Pacify" - {Official Video}

I haven't seen a artist this unique in quite some time now, FKA Twigs is like Sade, Aaliyah, with a twist of Grace Jones.  Twigs style almost as twisted as Marilyn Manson but in a dope way. Her creative mind is oozing with fantasy and erotica type persona, her music leaves you at the end wondering..."What the f#@k just happen..." and you end up watching or listening again over and over again.  If you have never heard of FKA Twigs before don't worry neither did I.  I few days ago my friend Woo introduced me to her music which got me hooked and bought her entire catalog.  Just scrolled down and maybe you will have a similar experience.  "Don't believe me just watch.!!" - Trinidad James

R.I.P. Prodigy Throwback Mix - {Video}

 R.I.P. Prodigy 1974-2017
Through all the controversy of Prodigy's death I decided to post something positive.  I was not originally a Mobb Deep fan simply because when they hit the scene I was more into De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, and Digable Planets type artist.  So artist like Mobb Deep and Heltah Skeltah weren't on my radar at the time.  
By the late 90's early 2000's I was searching for deeper lyrical content because P. Diddy and his band of "sparkling suit wearing" Emcees had taken over the mainstream airwaves.  That's when I started my underground HipHop collection of the dopest lyricist and Mobb Deep were one of those legendary groups.  R.I.P Prodigy your word smith'in and raw talent will surely be missed in.

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.

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.

 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}
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.

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."
