There is no way for this review to do justice to Detag as an artist, producer, and musician! He is from the Netherlands and has a lengthy career in music that goes back to the 90s. He has released several projects over the years including many this year alone that range to everything from Brother NIP’s Souljahz Only and Sleepwalkas Secret of da Ooze to his new group with Scratch LDP and D-Payne the Dead Click to name a few.
The Black EP really showcases Detag’s talents which include dope production, live instrumentation,dope rhyme skills, and the ability to sing. He is a one man band for sure! It starts off with a wicked horror filled intro and goes right into a song called F-ck which has some of the hardest guitar I’ve heard on a rap song in a long time. Really I can’t just classify F-ck as a rap song because there are parts where he is singing making this a great blend of Rock and Hip Hop. Right after that you hear Nip’s voices sampled on the track Murder which is about as dark as you can get. He captured the sound he was looking for with this project!
The Black Season is my favorite track on the EP. I can’t even describe it because it has a Bay Area Mob type sound mixed with some very dope Rock. He sings on the hook which really shows his talent as a vocalist. There is no way to put Detag in a box or try to put him in one category, he is multi-talented and is capable of holding his own with any producer or artist out there period. Do yourself a favor , step outside the box , open your mind and enjoy Detag’s The Black EP, you wont be disappointed.

One of Chi-Town’s pioneers Buk of Psychodrama called in for a dope exclusive interview!
East Coast flame spitter Illa Ghee called in for a dope exclusive interview!
Compton Vet Spider Loc was on the show for this dope new exclusive interview.!
Producer DJ Daryl was on the show for this rare exclusive interview.!
Deon Golatt, also known as, Deon The Don was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia. At a very early age, Deon started writing rhymes and performing several times for his third grade class. Deon started rapping in the early eighties while being influenced by Run DMC, L.L. Cool J, and Rakim. As the music shifted in the late eighties, to a more underground hardcore rap, Deon became influenced by N.W.A. and Ice Cube.
Growing up during the crack epidemic had given Deon a good hard look at the harsh reality of the streets. With Gangster Rap taking over the mainstream and the streets filled with Crack and guns, the gangster image and sound was the perfect match for this young, up and coming artist. Deon began penning more hardcore reality type lyrics and envisioning one day he could be on the same level as the great MC’s. In the late 90’s, Deon formed his first group with three other family members calling themselves “Golatt Boyz” by using their government last name. After a few failed studio sessions the members eventually disbanded and he formed a group with two child hood friends calling themselves “Die Hard” in the early 2000’s. They completed their first underground album titled “Retribution” but it was never released to the public.
Die Hard’s song “Big Doggs” was featured on Get Low Recordz compilation G Bundle Presents “Southwest Bosses” Vol. 1. After the group disbanded, Deon began focusing on a solo career and completed his first solo album titled “Premeditated” in 2006, later released digitally in 2012. Forming his own imprint Deon Records, along with his son Young Tay, he began to focus on building his brand. Under Deon Records in 2010, Deon put together his first mixtape titled “The Introduction” featuring his first solo act and son Young Tay. Deon followed in 2011 as the Executive Producer on Tay’s mixtape release titled ”Southview Takeover” Vol.1.
Three years later, Deon reunited with a member of the Golatt Boyz and began working on a collaboration album titled “Over Due” (Deon & GB). The pair finished their project in early 2017 and began promoting the single titled “Itz All Luv”. Deon is currently working on a 2017 solo project EP titled ”One Man Gang”. This EP will be his first solo release in years and will be released under Deon Records/Ruthless Propaganda Records. Having his hands tied with a lot of releases for 2017 and beyond DEON RECORDS IS A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH!
First off I want to congratulate Shan on dropping his first album in almost 30 years. Bars Over Bullshit is his first full length album since 1990s Play It Again Shan! After interviewing Shan several times and hearing various tracks like Let’s Bring Hip Hop Back or last year’s KRS-Diss Revenge of the Walking Dead I already knew he was gonna bring some lyrical heat on his new album and that is exactly what he did all while touching on real life shit!
This album is killing anything out in the Lamestream. Everyone is talking about boring Jay-Z but his new album ain’t shit compared to this! Right from the jump he brings you that real with songs like One Man Lives where in the hook he says “One Man Lives While Another One Dies/One Man Falls So Another Can Rise.” The album is full of street rhymes, gritty tales, and real life topics that many can relate to. To me that is what makes a good artist, you have to be able to relate to the people. On Bring Back MC Shan he displays his lyrical abilities and proclaims his return. In the song Mutha Fucka he fittingly says Mutha Fucka about 3 dozen times which would make the great Joe Pesci proud. This shit is gritty as fuck!
He revisits The Bridge with a dope Rock Re-Mix full of heavy guitar which gives you a glimpse of the MC Shan we all know from the 80s. That’s what I love about Bars Over Bullshit because he can take you back in time on one song then on the next give you some 2017 shit with brutal bars to destroy emcees of this era. The Song Who The Fuck Are You he gives you a glimpse of that rapid fire flow proving he can do it all. I’m so glad the homie dropped this album as it is very much needed. I hope the Hip Hop community shows this project alotta love as it is one of the biggest releases in the genre in 2017 hands down! I’ve been bumpin’ the album religiously for the last week, you definitely dont have to skip through anything just hit play and let that mutha fucka ride!

When I heard this the first thing I said to Scratch is “Why is this free?” He explained to me it was a mixtape, but I thought it was a regular album full of dope tracks. Jackboy D-Payne and Scratch LDP both got crazy rapid fire flows and are part of Livin Dead Productions which consists of a small army of dope rappers from all over.
They’re Back has 17 bangers featuring many LDP and UGS associates including X-It Only, Bigg Zakk, Chico Slim, Ya Boy Slow Mo, Cam, and DKB. Some of the stand out tracks are Bang Ya w/ X-It Only, Psycho, I’m So Tired, and Heart of Stone which was produced by TC outta South Carolina.
The subject matter varies to everything from trying to keep your head above water to straight killin’ mutha fuckaz! Take’em out probably is my favorite track on this project. To me that track has the energy to get you amped up. Really the whole project will get you amped, there is not much I didn’t like on They’re Back if anything at all because they brought their A Game on everything!
Scratch and D-Payne naturally work together very good. This mixtape is kind of like a project to get you ready for their upcoming group project Dead Click with Netherlands producer and group member Detag. The best part about this is the fact that it is free, you have nothing to lose especially if you appreciate lyrics, dope concepts, hard beats and nice features. Definitely one of the best from 2017 so far!

The homie Snake Lucci is back in the free world and he is already putting out new projects, this time with long time friend and collaborator Kxng ISO. The two just dropped Dabs Vol. 2 and they are reppin’ Omaha and the Mid-West to the Fullest.
Alot fo the production was done by Kxng ISO himself but they also got various producers including Meeks, Tae, and SCRSWRTH. They have features from King Frost, MCE, SCRSWRTH, and Tae to name a few.
Some of my favorite cuts off the album are Snake’s Unload, which is very high octane, and Str8 Jacket by MCE and SCRSWRTH which has more of an East coast vibe to it. Then of course Snake Lucci and Kxng ISO killed it on the Beef remix!
Over all this is a dope Mid-West project full of rapid fire deliveries, hard beats, and street tales. I liked the majority of the tracks, my only complaint is there is a couple with a little autotune and I don’t fuck with autotune at all, but other than that this is a very well rounded dope project!

First and foremost I have to congratulate II Tone, Mr4twenty and
all of Black Rain Entertainment for landing on the Billboard
Independent Charts debuting at #6 and has remained at #7 for the last
two weeks continuing to move units. Also II Tone’s solo album which I
reviewed earlier this year “New Direction” is currently charting at the
same time. This is huge for Memphis rap and independent rap all over
considering how hard it is in this era for artists to get attention,
especially with some hard shit like Black Rain. They are nothing like
these new age mumblin’ swag rappers, they spit hard street
shit over hard beats.
This is that M-Town real shit! This is the label that put out solo and group projects
with the Late Lord Infamous. You already know Lord would be proud!
With that being said Chicken Talk is one of the hardest street albums to
drop in 2017. With songs like Sell Out, South Memphis, and Bang,Bang you
can’t go wrong! Bang, Bang also has a dope video and there are features on
the project most notable from ATL flame spitter T-Rock. Another track I keep
playing is Say No More which is about gettin’ paid by any means necessary.
All the beats are hard as f-ck.Mr4twenty has a dope flo too, he put out an
album recently called Smoking Jacket which was also hella dope.Once again can’t
stress enough how dope it is to see some real cats hits the Billboard Charts
with some hard street music! This is A huge victory for the underground!
Check out the links below to cop Chicken Talk and to see the Bang Bang Music Video
Some brand new shit comin’ outta central Texas from A1-YO called Meth Muzik. For our regular listeners you might remember A1-YO from Episode 279 of the Murder Master Music Show back in 2016. He recently sent me this new EP Meth Muzik and it’s definitely some A-1 shit, some mob music about gettin’ paid and keepin’ it authentic!
The beats remind me of some Sac-Town Mob shit from Sam Bostic and Mike Mosley. It gives you that feel that is not like anything from this new age era which is dope as f-ck! The production on here was done by Kmakehitz, and Jay G.P. bangz. They brought that sound to match what A1 was saying perfectly. It all kicks off with Same Thing, then followed by my favorite cut off the project Bust Back.
This is his tenth project and you can tell he is not new to this at all, well rounded, lyrically sharp, and tons of mob tales! He is originally from Oakland so you can tell where he gets that Mob Sound from, but he also has some of that Texas sound in his music. He was successfully able to merge the two regions and rep’em both on this project! He even has a Slowed-N-Chopped version to the song Mob Move. As always with good EPs my only complaint is it leaves you wanting more. I definitely recommend this project and look for some of it to land on In Tha Murder Mix from time to time!
Musiq Matisse has been in the music business for well over 25 plus years . He started his career in the late 90s doing independent street promotions in the south for his own company RUFFCUT ENTERTAINMENT promoting independent artist (at the time) from labels such as SUAVE HOUSE, NO LIMIT, RAP-A-LOT, etc . Originally from Brooklyn NY the company started in Columbia SC and operated for three years before relocating to NY.
Musiq has been an internet radio personality ( on downshiftradio.com .1stfamradio.com ) and Managing Editor for TRUE MAGAZINE. He has served as a managerial consultant for NAAM BRIGADE( ELEKTRA /ARTIST DIRECT) & TRACEY LEE ( BYSTORM /UNIVERSAL ) . In 2016 he formed FORWARD MOTION MANAGEMENT LLC an independent company that is comprised of Management ,Media and promotions .
The first release is the mixtape CADILLACS COLLARD GREENS AND CORN BREAD and features MUSIQ returning to the mic with the sounds that inspired him to get behind the microphone …..” I love good music but am inspired by the pioneers from the south and the west coast so that’s where I naturally went to .”
Contact Matisse at email@example.com or at the companies website listed below .

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!

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!

T.C. is A dope artist and producer out of Columbia South Carolina. His style of production is definitely “Crunk” and his amped up rapid fire lyrical ability fits his music perfectly. He was once part of the group 2econd Theory with A.K., G.B. , Suspect da Villain , Kada and Prince Blue. In fact their classic album War zone was just re-released and is available everywhere online.
As a solo artist T.C. just dropped the brand new dope album “Black Out: The World Ain’t Ready” which features the likes of C-Mob, MC Mack, T-Rock, La Chat, and many others. The whole project was produced by T.C. and features around 20 hard hittin’ bangers!
With influences such as Bone, Three 6, Lil Jon, and others T.C. has created a lane for himself and has the respect of some of the best in the underground today! You can catch him making dope crunk beats or droppin’ fire 16s, either way the man has talent on both ends and has already proven that he is capable of putting out good quality music. Check out the links below to his social media as well as links where you can purchase his music!

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!

THE HISTORY/STORY OF SuiZiD3PaKT
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.
THE HISTORY OF FuN3RaLPaRLoRPRoDuX
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.

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!

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!

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.

Project Born outta Flint came through for the first hour followed by Monte Cristoe from Detroit for the second hour.
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!
