King K.O.N.G. - "Someone" EP - {Audio}

 K.O.N.G.  Kreator Of The New Generation is a self-proclaimed philosopher driven by the belief that true talent can be found anyplace in the world.  In this competitive industry there is a stampede of individuals that believe they can improve this industry, and strive within it. I believe that this industry has become over-saturated with low talented identical looking puppets.  It is the unique that will thrive in this industry, and it is the motivated that will change it for the better.  The K.O.N.G. EP is a mix of both old and new styles of HipHop.  Classic beats produced by Fallacy and mastered by JGramm.  This is a bold move by a very talented Emcee check out the single below.

DahLak - “Of No Consequence”LP - {Audi}

  Sacramento Emcee/Producer dahLak describes the cultural landscape he’s found himself in.  In rap, you can have far more drinks than hangovers.  You can f*ck with no strings attached and spend with no worries.  No health problems will ensue, the money grows on trees.  Fantasy is fun! Right?  

The problem is it’s not easy to leave; as dahLak articulates with his pre-album mixtape Of No Consequence.  It’s too fun, it sounds so good.  You can party to it, it’s sexy and seductive and it confirms what we all want to believe.   And for those good times, those great moments, those high-points, it has its purpose.  It obviously can’t last, but while it’s here, don’t think to hard about it.  After all, it is Of No Consequence.  This is a pretty interesting concept and worth checking out. If you want originality this is your guy.

Apollo Brown & Guilty Simpson - "Parkour" - {AUDIO}

 Motor City brothers Apollo Brown and Guilty Simpson have wasted no time pounding the pavement for Dice Game. In the past Apollo has toured Australia and New Zealand while Guilty did a lean and mean west coast run that spanned Los Angeles to Seattle before hitting the NBC/Universal lot to be on Carson Daly's show.

The dynamic dunon-album, bonus track “Parkour" is from their limited edition wax (Ivory Vinyl w/ bonus 45 featuring two non-album cuts).  This first bonus, named after the military training Parkour where practitioners need to burst through an obstacle course using the terrain to gain advantage. 

In similar fashion, Guilty takes the terrain laid out by Apollo Brown and powers through it like a linebacker with a vengeance.  The sound has a bit of an electronic tinge, something not so present on the official LP.

Anterluz - "The Ritz" LP - {Audio}

California Emcee & Songwriter Anterluz, dropped "The Ritz" a couple of years ago.  I liked this album from the jump its made of all those good things we love from that 90's HipHop era. Artist like Anterluz make you say "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.  The radio Disc Jockey no longer has any power of they can play on the airwaves.  So ya'll make sure you go out and support local artist like Anterluz to help keep the culture alive. Remember HipHop is NOT dead it's Underground.

Homeboy Sandman - "Couple Bars" - {Video}

 After giving us visuals for “Whatchu Want From Me“, “Sputnik” and “Illuminati” from his long player First of a Living Breed, the truly underrated Lyrical Beast from Queens, New York Emcee Homeboy Sandman bust out visuals for his Romantic Comedy track “Couple Bars”.
Always keeping it real in his rhymes this joint reminds me of A Tribe Called Quest's Bonita Apple Bum, simple yet multi-layered lyrics.  This is a HipHop classic and Sand is artist in every sense of the word.

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

Inline image 1
They say 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.

The Ol' Days - "UUUGGHHH" - {Video}

 These days everyone seems to be going crazy over the Zombie genre movies and tv shows (myself included). The Ol' Days took it upon themselves to document their own zombie experiences with the nice body ugly face disease.  This joint is off their album"1979", Mr. Dibia$e supplied the beats. Reminds me of the Golden Era when songs were funny without being exploitative.  This has happen to me a few times back in my day.

Palermo Stone - "The 2nd Coming" (Prod By Advocate) - {Video}

The moral of this story is we all have angels; we all have demons. Where there is light, there resides darkness. Palermo Stone’s new video, “The 2nd Coming,” produced by Advocate and shot by David Newbury of Beyond Dreams Productions, uses stark light and dark imagery, including a demonic interpretation of The Last Supper, to illustrate the thin line we all walk between good and evil. His upcoming album, The 2nd Coming, is a balancing act of the angelic and devilish forces in life.  Now this is REal HipHop !

AWKWORD - "Heather Heyer (F**k Trump)" - {Audio}

After being on a 9 month hiatus AWKWORD is back with a vengeance.  His new song Heather Heyer, was named after the young lady who lost her life while protesting against white supremacist, was produced by Teck-Zilla featuring DJ Wayne Ski.  It's a heart felt track telling the truths that most people ignore and few acknowledge.   Remember the system wan't created for us, it was meant hold us back and keep the elite in control.
