Reviews – Musiq Matisse – Cadillacs Collard Greens and Cornbread

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!

Artist of the Month – SuiZiD3PaKT

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.
-Don Mattson-

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.

Reviews – Supah Smash Bros – Stoplight City

supah-smash-bros-stoplight-city-front-cover

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!

You can buy Stoplight City on Digital or Hard-copy

Reviews – II Tone – New Direction-My World Overcometh

ii-tone-new-direction

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!

Reviews – K-Rino – The Big 7 Albums

k-rino-the-big-7
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.

krino

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 spckrino@aol.com for more details, otherwise get’em all digitally on Itunes! -Prezident Bejda

Reviews – Damu and Looselyric – Loyalty is Rare

damu-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-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!

UGS4LIFE Exclusive-ZULU Nation Phone Conference Audio

poppy

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 – Snake Lucci – River City

SnakeLucciCDTheRivercover
Snake Lucci actually put out River City awhile back because he has been incarcerated
for quite sometime.Even though he is behind the wall he has alot to say as you will
hear in an upcoming interview that he did with me recently. His people sent me this
album and I gotta say it is hard as fuck as you will find out for yourself.

He is from Omaha Nebraska which is a spot known in the underground for talented
artists such as Lon Mac aka Lon Meezy, and several others making it one of the hot
spots in the Mid-West even though it does not get the props that it deserves.
Snake continues with this tradition bringing real tight lyrics over super dope beats
that give the River City project a classic sound from the Middle of the map!

He raps about the harsh realities of the streets and has several flows. He can speed
it up fast as hell with that sniper flow, but then can slow it down for some laid back
shit. Over all he is a very well rounded artist. He has some help on here with cats
like Reali-T, Titus, Big Sofa, MCE, and QP.

Songs like Threat feat Reali-T displays a pure Hip-Hop style over hardcore rhymes
about the gritty conrete life. My other favorite cut was Face Off also with A
guest spot from Reali-T, in fact the song has a Chopped-N-Screwed version too.

This album is a must if you wanna check it out make sure to go to

Reviews – First Degree The D.E. – Black Bane The Misunderstood Hero Part 1

Black-Bane-Cover
When it comes to uncertainty, the element of surprise, the unknown,
and the macabre mixed with knowledge, funk, dope beats, and at times
utter insanity, you got yourself a First Degree The D.E. album, and
“The Black Bane: The Misunderstood Hero Part 1” lives up to all of those
attributes and then some.

It starts off with the title track “Black Bane” which happens to be laced with
one of the dopest beats I’ve heard in a long time, and is perfect to set the tone
for the rest of the album which will take you on many twists and turns
only like D.E. can. The funk is all over the album with alot of live instruments!
He has a whole catalog of music dating back to the early 90’s, but the question is
where does this album rank among the D.E. classics!

If you have been following him then you will not only thoroughly enjoy this album,
you might even go as to far as to say that it might be his best effort to date.
Phonk Beta of course is all over the project, it has many tracks that are worth
checking out like the unity driven underground homage payer “The Fahrenheit Record”
or maybe the funk on “Say Serra” is mixed perfectly with realism and the 90’s elements
on “I Wear Black Cuz Its Just My Style” are just what the rap game needs right now.

There is a total of 12 tracks altogether, with two videos “I Wear Black Cuz Its Just My Style
and Black Bane as well as live instrumentation throughout the project making this
another D.E. classic to add to his catalog. When you listen to this album you
should walk away with more knowledge, more musical insight, and as always with
D.E. a huge mind full of “What the F-ck?” Plus he does take care of all the
randoms from randomsville! If you are a new listener this album will take you
on a wild ride straight into the mind of D.E. and after you hear it, you should
be on your way to discovering his other projects from the last two decades!

Reviews – Graveyard Shift -The Best of Jackboy D Payne and Scratch LDP

00 - Various_Artists_Graveyard_Shift-front-large

Jackboy D. Payne and Scratch LDP bring you a collection of music
recorded over the last few years entitled Graveyard Shift.
It’s a greatest hits project and best part it’s free, no
reason not to check it out especially if you want hard beats
mixed with aggressive deliveries. During a time when dumbed
down rap is dominant, it’s refreshing to hear some real shit!

Right out the gate “Give A Fuck” feat Slow Mo and J-Mack, this
sets the tone for the rest of the project. These cats give you
lyrics, and flow with concepts pertaining to the streets, life,
struggles, pain, and insanity at times.

I’m bumpin’ the hell outta this project but I’m stuck on the song
Tales From The Darkside which was recorded in 2009 and Scratch
re-edited the Video of the same title that was also filmed in ’09!
It starts off with a rapid fire chorus followed by some straight
murder verses by both Scratch LDP and Jackboy D. Payne.

There is a few tracks that are more laid back maybe on some
pimpin shit, but my favorites are the hardcore like Wig Split
feat Cloud-9. You gotta also bump Where Da Weed for the smokers,
and if you want substance they got plenty of that too check out
I Put It Down which speaks on suicidal thoughts and lost loved ones
and those incarcerated!

Check out the 2 Mash-Up Tracks which features collections of
various tracks mixed together. Dope project, talented artists
and it’s fuckin’ free! Download and bump this shit
immediately! – Prezident Bejda
