Reviews – Musiq Matisse – Cadillacs Collard Greens and Cornbread

00 - Musiq_Matisse_Cadillacs_Collard_Greens_And_Cornb-front-large
00 - Musiq_Matisse_Cadillacs_Collard_Greens_And_Cornb-back-large

When I got ready to listen to Musiq Matisse’s new Mixtape Cadillacs, Collard Greens & Cornbread I already knew in advance he was gonna bring that grown folk music to make you think. Not only did he do so but he gave you a constant supply of lyrical talent over dope beats with out mumbling or doing your typical mainstream trend chasing bullshit!

Musiq Matisse paid homage to Rapalot, Suave House, No Limit, Three 6, DJ Quik, Ice-T, and several others on the song Legends. He cleverly put names of so many pioneers and legends into this song paying his respect to their contributions to the game. I respect the hell outta him for this because it is something that many artists don’t do anymore. Rarely do artists pay homage to those before them, now days they seem to try to tear them down, so my hat goes off to Musiq for this one for sure.

Like I stated earlier this project is grown folk music and one of the best songs is Mama’s House where he speaks on the importance of looking out for the one who looked out for him. On the song Something Southern he pays homage to the South, which I thought was dope considering he is from the East. Another dope track was Hustlers Like Us which has a soulful beat laced with lyrics of making moves and living life to the fullest.

My only complaint is there was only 7 tracks, but then again I’ve always preferred full length LPs over EPs, but the good thing is you don’t have to skip through anything because all 7 are on point. On top of that it leaves you wanting more, so I’m guessing the homie has alot more in store for us in the future. Defintiely worth checking out considering it is free and full of dope music!

Reviews – Dead Walkers – LIFEB4DEATH The EP

dead walkers

One of the only complaints that I have about this project is that it is only an EP.But it does have 9 tracks, which back in the day that would be considered a full length album. LIFEB4DEATH by the Dead Walkers outta Utah kicks shit off the right way with a song about wanting your rivals to rest in piss called Pray For My Enemies. It reminds me of something you would want to play before you go knuckle up against someone you really wanna beat the shit outta! Then it goes right into another evil sounding song You Out Here. This is that f’n Wicket Shit!

What I like about it is everything flows together. I’m not a real big fan outta Mars but the song Across the Nation features him and the legendary Mastamind which actually turns out to be a good collab. Mars is on a couple tracks, other features include Polk D, Nuttinxnyce, Moka Only, C-Rayz Walz, Atdaggersdrawn, Tha Jokaz, & Sarkaztik.

The beats are all Wicket, very dark evil sounding shit. Production on here was done by Dre40oz, Detour, Strik9, Brown Ceasar, Raw Diddie and VTZ so you have a whole variety of different producers on here and somehow they all captured a consistent sound together. Usually to do that you would just use the same producer, you could tell alotta time was put into this project.

I also enjoyed the song Angelic Noose because it is one of the more mellow tracks on here, and that gives you an idea of the range they got. I would have to say my favorite cut on the album is Comatose. The beat has all kinds of shit in it from dope guitar to piano. Yeah they can do the horrorcore dark stuff but they can also hit you with some pure Hip Hop as well. The production, features, and direction on this project were dope, I look forward to the next Dead Walkers release!

Reviews – T.C. – Blackout – The World Ain’t Ready

TC 2

I already had an idea of what to expect when I heard the sampler online, but when T.C. sent me the whole album I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since. Before I get into the dope music on the album I’mma give you a little background on T.C. He hails from Columbia South Carolina which along with Charleston are two slept on areas full of talent proving that South Carolina has some hidden gems in the Palmetto State. He started to produce around 13 years ago and then the following year picked up the mic. He was in the group 2econd Theory but later went solo.

The album Blackout is not for the laid back, this shit is all high energy music! Basically it’s crunk as fuck! He laced the album with his own production which can best be described as amped up anthems. Just about every track on here is an anthem. His style of production can’t limit him to one box but if you like Three 6 Mafia, MC Mack, The Kaze, T-Rock, and other music on that level then this is a must.

The features on here are insane! MC Mack and T-Rock are both on a few tracks each including the two bangerz Go To War Parts 1 & 2. Both T-Rock and MC Mack are on another track I loved on this project Act A Fool. Another track I’m feeling features C-Mob entitled Mask Up. Other features include La’Chat, A.K., G.B. Fatal Sinz, Kada, Prince Blue, Boogie Mane, Suspect Da Villain, and Kano. Everyone brought their A-Game and I couldn’t find anything wack on this album. In fact right now I’m not sure which album I like more this one or II Tone’s New Directions, but both are hittin’ hard as hell.

T.C’s production is highly heated but his rhymes are just as fire! Not only does he hold his own with all these incredible features but he has several solo tracks on here where he hits you with that rapid fire delivery! Songs like Fed Up, Lost For Ya, and Broken to name a few display his lyrical abilities. The concepts are original and the substance is there through out the duration of the album. He speaks on his struggles and what he went through which gives the listener a chance to see who he is and what he is about, he captures that perfectly!. I highly recommend this album, it’s definitely one of the ones to watch out for in 2017 as being one of the best releases!

Artist of the Month – SuiZiD3PaKT

MMMS SzP pic


In 1999 August Witzgall got a Boss BR8 digital recording module,Shortly after that Don Mattson got a Roland MC 303 and a Boss BR8 digital recording module also. By the end of 1999, Don Mattson, August Witzgall and Jeff Sanders had recorded a few tracks and decided to actually make an entire album. They called them selves “Cerabus”.
By mid 2000 The album was complete. They went from freestyling in underpasses, to actually having a whole album recorded. Only 10 copies were made and Jeff and Don had gone off and started another project together called D3DPo3TSoZi3TY. Though hundreds of D3DPo3TSoZi3TY songs were recorded, an album was never completed.
In 2001, Aug and Don decided to create another project with more determination, they called it D3MoN HaLo. this was when FuN3RaLPaRLoRPRoDuX was formed. D3MoN HaLo is still alive and have 3 albums under their belt.
In 2006, Jeff and Don made a choice to completely stop the D3DPo3TSoCi3TY project, wipe the slaight clean and start over as HoLLoWZGLooM. 50+ songs were recorded for the first album over 3 years when the album was complete only 200 copies were pressed.
In 2012 the founder of FuN3RaLPaRLoRPRoDuX Don Mattson started a project called SuiZiD3PaKT with the intention of working on tracks with the artists that greatly influenced him. He wanted it to be as brutal and violent as possable. In the early stage of the project, Dons wife commited suicide and he took a break. When he came back he decided to switch gears and go back to the traditional FuN3RaLPaRLoRPRoDuX lyric content but with more honesty.
SuiZiD3PaKT is my heart, I dont give a fuck if anyone likes or hates it. It is me, as I am and I just want to express issues that touch me and FuN3RaLPaRLoRPRoDuX in the same way a priest touches an alter boy.
-Don Mattson-


In 1999 August Witzgall started recording an album titled: Aug Dawg Texture and Attitude. He had Don Mattson on a track with him and write the hook for another track. Don, August and Jeff Sanders soon later decided to do a group album together called Cerabus.
In 2001 Don Mattson was a part of 2 different projects, DeMoN HaLo and D3DPo3TSoCi3TY. He decided to unite the 2 projects and any other project him, Jeff, or Aug did. Using FuN3RaLPaRLoRPRoDuX or Funeral Parlor Products/FPP, any and every project that is a part of it is credited to every “member” of FuN3RaLPaRLoRPRoDuX.

Reviews – Supah Smash Bros – Stoplight City


The Supah Smash Bros. are out of the Middle of the map from a spot known as Kokomo Indiana. I immediately noticed how much they rep their area, the first track on the new album Stoplight City is US 31. Another thing I noticed and liked was their distaste for mainstream music with the song F Da Mainstream where they speak on the repetitive nature of the industry. “Fuck the mainstream all I hear everyday is the same thing!” Even though I interviewed many mainstream artists throughout my career, I always made it a point to rep the underground.

Another thing I related to was the nostalgia, these guys were speaking about all the shit I grew up on with the track 80’s Baby. I was born in the 70s but grew up in the 80s and automatically took a trip back in time, so this track definitely worked if they were going for that effect. The production on there gave me the same type of feeling, the beats were hitting hard and had that synth 80s vibe. The sound quality was on point as well with the vast majority of the project mastered by D-Payne.

The Hellraiser himself, Mastamind was all over this album. He was on 3 tracks with Nightmarez being my favorite, they all brought that Wicket Shit on this one. They also had features from Skitzo, Dirty White Mike, SuiZid3PaKt and Project Born who was on my favorite track off the album Midwest Massacre. The beat hits hard and the Middle of the Map is represented to the fulled, a good blend of Michigan and Indiana. I can’t really complain, I was impressed! Aside from maybe a couple tracks I enjoyed the majority of this album. The Middle was repepd, the Wicketshit was repped, the features were dope, and the sounds were original and fresh!

Reviews – II Tone – New Direction-My World Overcometh


II Tone is back with a brand new solo album in 2017! Black Rain Entertainment and II Tone have been puttin’ it down for years, and always represents Memphis Tennessee to the fullest! This album is crunk as fuck to start off with! The production is done by different producers including Jack Daniels, DJ Cree and St. Kittz but the majority of this dope production was done by Cuttoffurmind! It captures that classic M-Town Get-Buck sound, so if you are a fan of dope Memphis rap then this is a must!

One of the songs I cant stop bumpin’ is Water Off featuring Mac Montese and T-Rock because it is about how people change when you quit doing shit for them. Basically goin’ in on them snakes that lay around waiting for your downfall! Another one I’m feeling is Different because he opens up about alot on here including having Vitiligo which is the same condition that Krizz Kalico of Strange Music has. The album is packed full of heat, including the fire track Take A Puff featuring Mr. 4Twenty and Mac Montese, this one is a real smoker’s anthem!

I’m feeling at least 90% of this album, even the couple songs I’m not into are bumpin’, but then again I’ve never known II Tone or Black Rain to put out anything wack. He even has Lord Infamous(RIP) on here whom was a huge part of Black Rain Entertainment.I love the beats, the dope rhymes, but also the quality. This is the first II-Tone solo I’ve heard in a minute and I strongly recommend it to anyone who is into hard street shit. Definitely a breathe of fresh air for the new year!

Make sure to hit up Itunes and cop this album!

Artist of the Month – The Supah Smash Bros


The Supah Smash Bros  of Kokomo Indiana started writing music under the name Lyrikillaz in 2001, and wrote but never released their 1st project Children of the Corn. Dr. Myndbendah (Racer_X_S_Cash) and Dat Killa Blunted (Mistah DKB) began their careers as the Supah Smash Bros shortly after releasing 25 plus mixtapes before recording and releasing their 1st official release Stoplight City in early 2017.


With that being said , you have to respect the grind, hustle, and determination of the Supah Smash Bros. They represent the Underground on all levels by not only making their own music but also by working with many underground legends such as Mastamind and Project Born to name a few. Make sure to check them out and support their movement!

Reviews – K-Rino – The Big 7 Albums

One thing I can say is that I never before in my life reviewed 7 albums at once, that’s because no artist in any genre of music, let alone Hiphop has ever dropped 7 brand new albums with 80+ songs, all on the same day, until now because that is exactly what H-Town Lyrical Legend K-Rino has done. I’m gonna break down each of the 7 albums, but first I want to encourage all media outlets, no matter what form of entertainment, to cover this historical Guinness Record worthy accomplishment because like I stated earlier, no one, I mean no one has ever even attempted this let alone done it! And if you have a Hiphop Media platform and you choose not to speak on this, then you DO NOT REPRESENT HIPHOP! Remember folks, we live in an era where non-talented mumbling morons who lack ability, creativity, knowledge and respect of Hiphop get more acknowledgement than true artists with lyrical supremacy!

Album Titles Contain Itunes Links

The first album is entitled Universal Curriculum and it is packed full of classics, in fact my favorite song off the Big 7 is on this album, Extreme Malice. Once the beat kicks in you can already tell K is about to do some serious lyrical damage, and he just goes off kickin’ it with shit like this “Anyway you script it ima blaze and rip it I’m 3 times as gifted like a birthday for triplets.” I can’t review each track, otherwise I would be here for days but another one that really stood out for me off this album was S.P.C. This track he breaks down the history of the 1st Southern Rap Click, the South Park Coalition which was formed in 1987 and is still alive and well today with a catalog of 200+ albums combined. The album features Z-Ro, Klondike Kat, and others.

The next album is Conception of Concept and right off the bat track number 3 Anesthetics is one that you can’t stop listening to. The lyrical ability on this song would destroy anything that Eminem ever put out. Another example of why the mainstream needs to acknowledge K-Rino’s talents, but outside of a few outlets, he is unfortunately slept on! Trifflin‘ is another track that I can’t stop bumpin’ because it blasts these fake suckers and parasites out here. Listen Up is a track that exposes the evil corruption and racism that the system was built off of.

Now it is time to Enter the Iron Trap and the first track Barbarian is K speaking about how the lyrics are still relevant and then goes off into one of his signature non-stop verbal assaults. It’s hard to break down K’s styles because he has so many, but if I were to break them down into 3, you would get the extreme lyrical, the dope creative story telling, and then the educational and this album, just like all his previous work embodies all three. The song that I can’t stop listening to on this album is Keepin’ Your Name Alive is dedicated to the Late Wickett Cricket. K reflects on all that he learned from him as well as his impact on the city of Houston.

The 4th album is The Wizard’s Ransom which contains my second favorite track off the Big 7 entitled Flashbackwards. Even though I can bump this whole album front to back, this song I have on repeat! In the last verse he speaks about living his life in reverse, from the present day all the way back until he wasn’t even a thought in his parent’s minds. I don’t think I have ever heard another song so creative. “Then back to the day of birth some how I remember though, back into the belly changing from fetus to embryo, then a sperm cell exiting the egg in reverse, then out of the memory of both parents I disperse, Then I heard A voice say how ungrateful that I had been, and said when you appreciate life then I will send you back again.” Once again this proves K’s creativity is bar none.

Number 5 is American Heroes which is probably my favorite album of all, but I’m sure the more I listen to all 7 this will change frequently. But as of now this contains my favorite lyrical track Brain Damage where K literally tells other rappers that he will bump them off and then he will make them clean up their own murder scene. The title track breaks down real American history, as always K didn’t pull any punches. He exposes the evil atrocities of Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and more modern monsters such as Ronald Reagan, Both Bushes, and Henry Kissinger to name a few. Then he brought in Ganxsta NIP on the song Administrative Leave where both SPC pioneers go in on crooked cops.

Welcome to Life
is the 6th album, and the title track lets you know that we all struggle, there is pain for everyone! This is the type of song that you listen to when you are going through some real shit. All of K’s albums have songs that make you think, like I said he don’t pull punches, that’s always been one of his strongest points. The song Crazy World gives you a vivid glimpse as what is going in the world today, with everything from child starving to how certain medicines will kill you faster than the actual disease do. Hypocrisy is about how people can be fake and ready to stab you in the back in a heartbeat.

The ending comes with album number 7 Intervention and the story telling once again is untouchable. After 6 albums you would think that he would run out of concepts but not the case at all. Wizard’s Ransom 2 takes you on a journey where K is telling a dope story where everyone is against him and he has to figure out how to make things right overcoming various obstacles. Then on The Man Who Lived Forever has more metaphors than a dumb fuck like myself can keep up with. It’s one of those songs you will need to listen to a bunch of times. Then he caps off the album with a posse song called Firing Squad featuring Klondike Kat, Rapper K, Chucky the Killer, Mr. Cap, B-1, Point Blank, Rhyme Felone and others.


I’m still soaking up the dope music, and to be honest it will take me a long time, because K’s lyrics are unmatched, his concepts are original and always creative beyond belief, but what I respect about K the most is his relentless pursuit to tell the truth. He is not afraid to tell it like it is. He did the unthinkable, he dropped 7 full albums on the same day, never been done before and I don’t think it ever will be done again or outdone, unless it is K-Rino himself who is the one to do it! With that being said I once again encourage ALL MEDIA OUTLETS to cover this amazing achievement. To get physical copies send K-Rino an email for more details, otherwise get’em all digitally on Itunes! -Prezident Bejda

Reviews – Damu and Looselyric – Loyalty is Rare

Props to the homie Miguel from San Diego who likes to send me dope new music from his city. He recently sent me this banger by Damu and Looselyric entitled Loyalty is rare and it proved to be a great album. Sometimes I feel lost in this new era with rappers who mumble, wear dresses, and have no respect for the art at all let alone the legends that came before them, these are some OG Vets and the music speaks for itself. No BS, all dope beats, lyrics, and substance!

Like I mentioned earlier, you don’t have to worry about that new era bullshit with this one, it’s all hard West Coast San Diego Street Shit! Songs like Vision expose you to reality about living in the streets while trying to provide a positive message. It’s about taking risks and doing what is necessary for survival in a rough environment rapped over a laid-back G-Funk smooth beat! Some shit to ride to and something that makes you think about life.

The very next track Feel This is one I got on repeat, the beat is the same sample from Pooh-Man’s classic “Fuckin’ Wit Dank” so you know it’s knockin’, then the lyrics are as hardcore as you could get and reps that Killa Cali Gangsta shit to the fullest! Another one I keep listening to is If I Was Broke where they speak about humble beginnings and how people come around when you start doing good, they say “Would you F-ck wit me if I was broke?” and that’s what we see alot of, people are no where around when you are down but when things start to look up here they come!

I can’t say anything bad about this project, it’s West Coast, hard, street, good music, and G-Funk all the way through! This is the type of music that was made during my favorite era in rap, the 90’s! If you are like myself and can’t stand this radio lame-stream crap of today then you will love this one!

Reviews – My Rise 2 Fame by Christopher Wong Won aka Fresh Kid Ice

Fresh Kid Ice Book

What young boy growing up in the 1980s at one point didn’t run up to one of the girls in class, or in some cases straight to the hottest teachers desk and screamed out “We Want Some Pussy” at least once? Ok, maybe most kids didn’t go that far, but by the fourth grade I had already heard the song of that same title and many other 2 Live Crew classics. Even though they went above and beyond to ensure that little motherfuckers like myself didn’t get to hear the music by being the first to place Parental Advisory stickers on the albums or to even recording complete clean versions and still were demonized. As nasty as the music was the group took precautions and did it right, but in the end faced horrible backlash from the Media, Angry Parents, the Government, and the Police. In 1991 after releasing several successful albums, the group as we know it with all four members, disbanded. Sure there were different variations and line ups, but as a true 2 Live Crew fan to me the best line up is with Fresh Kid Ice, Luke, Brother Marquis, and Mr. Mixx all together.

Everyone knows the 2 Live Crew, but what many don’t know is the amazing life of the groups founder Christopher “Fresh Kid Ice” Wong Won. I already knew much of the history of the group and bits and pieces about the members, but when I sat down to read Chris’s book “My Rise 2 Fame” I was immediately blown away about the pain and struggles this man has went through. He was born in Trinidad and by 1977 he moved to Brooklyn, and when he arrived he was greeted by the infamous serial killer Son of Sam and the Black Out. By the early 80s Chris was in the Air Force where he first started the Rock-On Crew, but it wasn’t until he was stationed in California where he met Mr. Mixx and Amazing V and formed the 2 Live Crew.

A few years later Luke brought them down to Miami, Brother Marquis replaced Amazing V and the rest is history. During those years of success, Chris experienced some very traumatizing events as in this book he details health issues as well as a serious car crash where he was a passenger in a friend’s Camaro that left him with his arm and shoulder internally severed. The only reason he survived this horrible crash, Doctors say is that he was asleep during the moment of impact.

He also shares with the readers about his wild times on the road, describing in nasty detail only as the founding member of the 2 Live Crew can. When speaking about the groupies that he would fuck, he mentions that some would give up the goods for just a 2 Live shirt. He speaks of group sex, fucking college girls, and speaks about their famous Japanese Tour where one night a chick came on stage and gave JT Money head and the following night the chick did it to Luke.Chris speaks of how sometimes girls would be waiting on them in hotel rooms eating each other out. Like I said, this is the founder of the nastiest rap group ever, so of course you already know you are gonna get some tales of crazy sex with groupies.

It’s also packed full of rare pictures of Chris with all kinds of entertainers such as Ice Cube, Too Short, and E-40 to name a few. When he is speaking about the classic album As Nasty As They Wanna Be he breaks down virtually every song. He speaks on the concepts, ideas, who came up with what, I thought that was dope how he did that. Nasty was one of the most talked about, controversial and remembered rap albums in history.

Things were going good or seemed to be and by the next album Banned In The USA Chris speaks of only receiving a check for less than 10K. They put out As Nasty As They Wanna Be II and shortly after the group broke up. By the mid 90’s Luke Records filed for bankruptcy due to law suits and owing people money, not long after Lil Joe bought the rights to the music and put out 2 more group albums, one with Mixx, Marquis and Chris and one with just Marquis and Chris. Even though the group was honored by VH1, they have still not reunited with all four members.

After reading the book I took a lot away from it. You have a man who came to this country as a youth, served in the US military, formed one of the most controversial groups in Hiphop history, fought for our Freedom of Speech, but also has battled personal demons, survived 2 strokes, a car accident that left him with permanent nerve damage, was not paid what a Multi-Platinum artist should have been and much more. My Rise 2 Fame is one of the dopest books out there, not only does it tell the story of 2 Live from the beginning , but it also goes into great detail of the success and personal struggles of a true pioneer. Fresh Kid Ice helped to pioneer the West Coast and Down South, that alone makes his legacy set in stone! -Scott “Prezident” Bejda

Reviews – Jackboy D Payne Presents – Ambitions of a Hustla

00 - Jackboy_D_Payne_Various_Artists_Ambitionz_Of_A_Hu-front-large

Classic LDP (Livin’ Dead Productions) at it’s finest brought to you by Jackboy D-Payne with this brand new mixtape Ambitions of a Hustla. It starts off with Get Rite featuring DH Statking and it details his struggle in life, basically trying to keep his head above water, trying to provide for his family, stay out of prison, and live his life, any real motherfucker with responsibilities has to feel it.

I love the beats he has on here, and some of the beats that he rapped on like the classic “I Got 5 On It” with his twist called “Battle Dont Stop” which he wrote while he was in prison. Plus his deliveries vary, he is not a one track emcee, some songs he rhymes slower, others he flips it fast, like on the track “They’re Back” featuring Scratch LDP and Chico Slim, all 3 of’em kill that shit.

He doesn’t do this alone he enlists several emcees from all over the place including the homie Scratch LDP, Rico Laww, Chico Slim, DH Statking, Slow Mo, so LDP is all over this project. I like the fact that he showcases other cats talents as well as his own.

We fuck with the homie Jackboy D Payne. He is definitely one to look out for. You cant beat the price, $FREE.MOTHERFUCKER so shout out to the homie for putting out a dope project for free. If you want to check out more from Jackboy D-Payne get at him on Facebook and get him on your next project, he also does mixing and mastering so let him fix up your audio too.

Reviews – Don Blanco – Love Yall Mixtape-EP

don blanco

Don Blanco drops his new mixtape EP Love Y’all, but it’s more like a full album because it has about 9 or 10 cuts on there. Right from the jump he reps his home with Nine Six Teen reppin’ that 916 Sac-Town California. Full of substance plus you already know it’s a dope project, it’s comin’ from Paystyle. On the track Contemplating he gets real deep about his life and thoughts that go through his head.

Then he goes right into Food For Thought featuring E-Moe and Mistuh-G and all three rip the hell outta the track. The beats on here are all knockin’ some Northern Cali Mob Music mixed with grown folk mentality. This is definitely for the OGs but at the same time it will appeal to the younger generation, but the ones who are not brainwashed and mind f’d by the swag and the lamestream!

Another track I’m feeling is All The Way Up feat E-Moe, the way they flow on there has the appeal to make it in any market. The whole mixtape is bumpin’ but if you are into some trap type shit or some materialistic music, then this is not for you. This is that grown folk music as I mentioned earlier, the type of stuff you listen to when you are in deep thought, when you take a ride and wanna clear your head, this is great for that.

There might be a track or two I don’t completely vibe to but overall I’m diggin’ this whole project for the most part. The best part about it is the fact that it’s hella dope music for f’n free! There is no reason not to at least check it out. The download link is below show some love to Don Blanco because like his mixtape says “Love Y’all” so make sure to show him some love and download the mixtape!

Review – HatchGotti – The Return of Mafia Musik


Hatchgotti is comin’ outta Clarksville, Tn and is a part of Vi.D.O.’s Tennessee Butcher’s which just dropped a dope group album “The Sound Of Violence”, but this is his latest solo effort “The Return of Mafia Musik”, which gives you a better glimpse of who he is and what he is about. In the past he went by the name of Lil Hatchet and was also a part of the Clarksville pioneering rap group U.S.A. United Soldiers Affiliation.

The Return of Mafia Musik has a one two punch because there is alot of music on here that would appeal to the younger audience and the females as he refers to making money, going to the club and partying. If you know me you know I’m not into that but, where he makes up for us older cats is by supplying us with plenty of substance, and hard street shit.

The first track that had me listening over and over was My Apology which is packed with substance where he speaks about Ferguson, and his belief’s of what life is all about through the pain and struggles. Then on Mafia War he goes the fuck off on a very aggressive beat, those are the kinds of tracks that I think he is at his best on. He can do virtually any style and do it well, but I love his more aggressive amped up stuff.

The track You Can’t Come Back Here is another one I got on repeat. On this one he is letting you know pretty much not to fuck with him, he’s lettin’ be known that he don’t play no games. Then on Feel The Pain he captures his essence of a classic Scarface type of song, with a beat laced with Piano, reminds you of some mobster shit for sure! He ends the project perfectly with a bonus track “Burn Their Studios Down” featuring the Tennessee Butchers, which is self explanatory as it lets other rappers know not to cross Vi.D.O.

I definitely recommend this album. It was like a Do or Die project because he had tracks for the club, and maybe the females, but he also had that straight Al Capone or in this case John Gotti Mafia Musik! The beats are all tight, and his versatility shows, he can speak about injustices, struggle, and pain, but then can speak on having a good time or maybe just blowing your head off and leaving you in the gutter, either way he puts his all into his music. Dope project!

Reviews – Dez of Hellborn – Tunnel Vision

Dez of Hellborn

The Mississippi Pit Viper is back once again, and this time he is taking no prisoners. Tunnel Vision by far is probably the hardest fuckin’ project I have heard so far in 2016 because it is packed with hard beats and hard street rhymes with a rapid delivery only like Dez can do it.

I’m not even sure how many albums he put out because I lost count, but the Jackson Mississippi veteran has been consistent for several years keeping his name alive as well as Jackson. To be honest Jackson, MS is severely slept on, and Dez is one of the tightest out of Jack Town.

The album starts off with an intro that says “Warning, you are now about to enter the tunnel” and then goes right into a amped up track “Million Dollar Game” laced with Dez’s classic delivery which consists of a smooth flow that can change in a matter of a second to a rapid sniper flow at will. His ability to go back and forth is what makes him stand out above the rest. “In My Sleep” also starts off slow and kicks in hyper drive. All this talk of cats like Tech N9ne and others with a similar flow, need to recognize that Dez has been around since the 90s.

You dont have to fast forward shit! One of my favorites cuts is the posse track Warface featuring Kaotic Klique, Scoot Pimp, Seer Da Reaper, Rissa Mac, Playboy Mack and D.T.G. Everyone knows I love substance, and this album is packed fulla reality! “Hard Out Here” speaks on people going through hard times and Dez gives you his all reppin’ for those who are strugglin’ along with help from Vell Da Vett.

I strongly recommend that you check this out especially if you are sick of that swag bullshit that is clogging not only the Lamestream but also the underground markets because many underground artists try to be like these swaggotz, but not Dez. This veteran emcee dropped another solid thorough project and his core fan base will not be disappointed as well as anyone looking for an alternative to the swag crap out there now days!

UGS4LIFE Exclusive-ZULU Nation Phone Conference Audio


UGS4LIFE.Com Exclusive: Poppy who was a past guest on the Murder Master Music Show, and one of the Afrika Bambaataa Sexual Molestation accusers, submitted audio to UGS4LIFE of a Zulu Nation conference call which lasted close to 1:40:00 with ZULU Nation members on the line from around the globe.

During the conference the members discussed how to move forward as well as how to lead the ZULU Nation in the future, but several addressed their concerns and grievances. Around 48:15 into the conference King Monk from the UK refers to Michael Jackson, and Bill Cosby stating that it cannot be solved legally.

A few minutes later around the 50:30 mark Monk says “I see them attacking the temple of Hiphop now and I see them attacking KRS-One for standing up and saying what he thinks is true.”

Then around the 53:40 mark, Minister Alex from Australia said people have received death threats and that he is the only one left from his chapter “All the problems that come from New York is riddled all across the globe. We’ve all suffered the consequences of it. I’ve had people over here that have lost their jobs because of it, people that have been threatened! Members of my own chapter have gotten death threats over this!”

Then around 1:28:10 into the call Bambaataa comes on the line and drops some bombshells! First he speaks on the legacy of the ZULU Nation and then he starts to speak how he is tired of excuses. “I’m tired of hearing the excuses of everyone!” Later he states how he is not scared of social media “I’m not scared, I’m not no bitch.”

Then he even referred to Bill Clinton and how Clinton didn’t step down when he was accused. “Did you see President Clinton bow down and step down when he was President and went through his type of shame for whatever he did and the whole Government left and got scared and had to change his flag and business? Stop acting like bitches!” Then later he boldly claims “I’m Not Going Nowhere!”

So for all of the rumors about Bambaataa still running the ZULU Nation, it sounds like people are trying to reorganize but also sounds like he is clearly still involved behind the scenes.

Reviews – Original Gangstas by Ben Westhoff

original gangstas

I could not put this book down, and I’m not one to read much. Ben Westhoff, who is a well known journalist penned one of the best books detailing the lives of not only Eazy-E, NWA, and Tupac but also all of the legends and pioneers that worked with them. There are many dope stories in here that go back to the start of the West Coast Gangsta Rap scene in the 1980s.

I also like the fact that no punches are being pulled with his book, Ben is not sugar coating shit, he is telling it how it is by interviewing some of the biggest names the West Coast has ever seen, plus he got information from a few dope radio shows like the Murder Master Music Show which was a huge honor for us.

With out giving too much away, I will disclose some of the info we spoke about during our recent interview with Ben. One of the most fascinating things is how the Nation of Islam, supposedly was treating Eazy-E with the AIDS drug Kemron, until his Wife reportedly made the NOI stop administering the drug to him. Other highlights for me was finding out that Biggie actually wanted Tupac to manage him until Pac told him to stick with Puffy. It’s one of those “What if” moments that all Biggie & Pac fans would wonder about, and Westhofff captured that perfectly. It’s a book that keeps you wanting to keep reading, it’s packed full of dope stories like these!

Original Gangstas drops September 13th everywhere, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon Also make sure to check out the Original Gangstas Facebook Page

Reviews – K7Leetha – Red Eggz & Ham 3


I am convinced that K7Leetha really eats human flesh. This is the third installment to the Red Eggz & Ham series and it is pretty much a trilogy of terror, but that’s not all. You can’t box him into just Horrorcore because he is so much more than that. Sure I think K7Leetha with songs like the Bloodhound Gang cover of Nothing But Mammals entitled Nothin But Cannibalz would have you believe otherwise, and I’m sure he could make the most disgusting and disturbing music with people like Ganxsta NIP or Brotha Lynch Hung, but Leetha takes you in multiple directions.

I always loved how he went right at lame weak ass fuckin’ rappers. Songs like Lazy Ass Rappers, and Swagger Centipede go right at these wack cornball jerk-off rappers that are destroying the game. Leetha is about respect and upholding integrity in the rap game, he will bring it to a swaggotz ass in a hurry! The song Taylor Swift is hilarious because in the chorus he says “Taylor Swift goes harder than you and your whole crew”, I had to laugh my ass off at that because sadly it’s true now days in Hiphop. He has a couple videos the first is on some Tennessee Crunk buck shit called 24 Hours. Then he goes in on some more lames with the song and video for Wiley Coyote.

On top of that this album is a Vi.D.O. release so you know it is packed fulla sunstance. I always apprciated that about Vi.D.O. artists because when you cop their albums you are not getting that materialistic bullshit, you are getting brutality, substance, and good game over hard crunk beats. Some of the other tracks I enjoyed were Factory Now Hiring, House of Cardz, Go To Town On Em and just about every track. This is definitely one of the hardest albums of 2016 easily!

You can cop it on Amazon or just about anywhere else online Make sure to hit up Vi.D.O. and check out the other dope music they released so far this year

Reviews – Mr. Mink Loco – Cali Clap Muzsic

mr mink loco-cali clap muzsic album cover

This new Mr.Mink Loco album “Cali Clap Muzsic” is A breath of fresh air in the rap game 2016. Some straight California G-Funk from the start to the end. This is coming outta San Diego and gives you the feel of something straight out the 1990s, which is exactly where I wanna be with the music I listen to, because in all honesty many of the newer cats are too eager to bandwagon that swag bullshit, but not this. It’s full of dope samples, laid back funky beats, with hard street rhymes.

I love how the fact that he puts the skinny jean wearing fools on blast in the song Tell No Lie, he also goes at the wack rappers, the police, and is letting you know what his town is like, how hard it is in the streets. On the song They Really Ain’t Knowin he speaks about his grind, his production which is dope as fuck and just a day in the life of Mink Loco.

The homie Miguel put me up on this CD and I gotta say I’m glad he did, I could name off just about every track on here. I didn’t hear anything wack at all. It’s reppin’ San Diego and California all through out the project. He wants you to fully understand where he is from and what his hood is like in the form of dope hard edged rhymes over smooth G-Funk laced Cali beats. Dago’s Finest and Livin That Dago Life are perfect examples of the love Mink has for his city.

He has a gang of features on here some of them are Anthrax, Mister Lowc,Licwit,Richianno,and Baby Keko. He also dropped a video not too long ago which you can see here called Time to Get It featuring Mister Lowc and Anthrax.

I got no complaints, I like this cat, he’s lyrically on point and his production is dope as hell bnot too mention he goes in on that new age bullshit rap all throughout the album. He is takin’ it to these lame ass swag skinny jean skin tight shirt wearin’ cornball rappers. He sees how they are desicrating the rap game and as a long time Hiphop supporter, I appreciate mfers who attack that fuckery music!

Digital Version coming soon but you can buy physical copies from Mr.Mink Loco

Reviews – Woodpile – Blood Sweat and Beers

woodpile blood sweat and beers

Woodpile is back and they ain’t fuckin’ around! I reviewed at least 2 of their 3 previous albums over at Murder Dog and they were always a dope talented group, but they upped the level of talent a few notches for sure. Blood , Sweat, and Beers takes you in several directions and that is what could make this album be successful in just about any market globally!

First and foremost let’s get straight to the bloody murder of it all, which by the way is the title of one of the tracks on the album. It is packed with tales of violence and rage, and pure aggression! I always loved the fact that these guys bring a very high level of energy to their music. It’s not just 3 dudes rappin’ lyrics over a beat, they all put alot of adrenaline into their music making sure the listener gets amped the fuck up, in my case it worked perfectly, as I found myself balling up my fists, bobbin’ my head, ready to attack the mailman if he gives me too much junk mail today!

Tracks like Worldwidewoodpile have the same energy as a rowdy Three 6 anthem mixed with some of the hardest vocals on any track! Then you take the guitar that is all over this album like on the songs “Pendulum” and “Terrible” and it takes to to another place musically. This record could pass for a rap album or a heavy rock album. But they don’t even stop there because on songs like “Wanna Believe” which they made a video for, they speak about how their beliefs keep them from ending up in jail or in messed up situations. They bring a high level of substance with this project, alot of positive messages, but at the same time, it’s Woodpile so you can definitely expect some hardcore in your-face aggressive reality over some of the dopest production out there.

The album was actually mixed and mastered by Grammy award winner Jeremy Parker out of Premier Studios in Phoenix AZ. who won A Grammy with Evenesense. The sound quality on this album is phenomenal to say the least. There is a total of 10 tracks, I didn’t have to skip through anything, just let it ride and it will take you on a helluva journey to say the least. This is their 4th and best album to date, you wont be disappointed!

Available now on Itunes

Reviews – Tennessee Butchers – The Sound Of Violence

Tennesee Butchers

If you like to get AMPED THE FUCK UP “The Sound of Violence” is the album for you. Tennesse Butchers is A group of various artists from Clarksville, TN. If you are big on underground rap from the Mid-South you will recall Vi.D.O Entertainment with the classic group U.S.A. United Soldiers Affiliation. This is on that level but with A different line up, including K7Leetha, Antidote, Mr. Mugg, Kountri Boi, Lil Hatchet,and even a cold ass female rapper Mr$ Mugg.

The energy kicks in instantly with an eerie intro leading right into a posse track “DoItIfUGonna” with everyone killin’ it over a real dark beat. I don’t know how they pulled it off but they managed to keep a consistent sound throughout the whole album while having many producers that include: Chris Mecca, Dark OneBeats, RDX, Silins Beats, B. Wright,Platinum Seller Beats, VTZ, Diamond Style Productions, Cinematic Hype,Feelz Beatz, and Moscow Mark.

They got a dope song called “Rappit Season” and a Video where they go in on these wack ass lamestream rappers now days. Music like this is needed now more than ever considering how messed up the state of Rap is. Then on songs like “12GAor12thGR” that is full of substance and reality speaking about how bad the youth have it these days meaning you can choose A 12 Gauge or the 12th Grade. I respect them for speaking on not only the evils against the youth but the political corruption that plagues society.

In all honesty I can’t say there is one wack track on this album. If you like reality,and substance mixed with brutality over dope ass beats with a sound similar to that of the Late Lord Infamous (whom they have worked with before his death), but also embodies several other syles, sounds, and subject matter then this is for you. Very well rounded album and very militant against the Lamestream, in fact right on the cover it says “The Culling of the Lamestream Begins in Tn.” I stand with them against the Lamestream because the time is now if you want to restore substance, truth and integrity back into the game otherwise we are just gonna continue to be swamped with Swag, Materialism,and artists with out any form of talent. Let’s take this shit back!!!!!

The Album “Sound Of Violence Will is available on Itunes
