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!

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

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 – 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!

Reviews – K7Leetha – Red Eggz & Ham 3

cover

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 – 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

Reviews – Renizance -The Streets Is Calling

The Streets Is Calling copy

Renizance is the founding member of the underground Fort Worth
Texas group the Immortal Soldierz which is globally known and has
been featured in publications such as Murder Dog and has worked
with the likes of Three 6 Mafia founding member the late Lord
Infamous, Twisted Insane, Z-Ro and many others.

Renizance just dropped his first solo album entitled “The
Streets is Calling” on Unforgiven Records and proves that he is
just as effective on his own as he is a with Immortal Soldierz.
The album starts off with one of my favorite tracks off the entire
project entitled “Kill Shit” where he murders the beat with his
signature style mixed with A combination of rapid fire rhymes and
A melodic chorus.

Other tracks that really stood out for me were the controversial song
“Trump Dies” where Ren shows no mercy for the Billionaire Businessman
turned Politician. Another heater was the Scotty Boy collab “Fuck Tha
World” which pretty much speaks on his struggle in the game and in the world.
The album has about 15 tracks total and I did not hear anything less than
dope as fuck on this album!

I have reviewed Immortal Soldierz projects in the old Murder Dog Magazine,
and “The Streets is Calling” stands on it’s own as another Unforgiven Records
Classic! Renizance and Immortal Soldierz alike have both been heavily slept on
Considering the quality and talent they process as artists. You wont be
disappointed so cop that motherfucker immediately! Another dope project
for 2015 – Prezident Bejda

Make sure to get The Streets is Calling on ITunes also follow Renizance on @immortal817

Reviews – T-Rock – The Untold Truth

t-rock

First and foremost you can’t deny the lyrical ability of T-Rock
In fact, he should always be recognized as one of the best to
ever do it. He has a rapid fire delivery, but can also hit you
from several other angles with many styles and flows.

We recently had him on the show and previewed dope tracks like
“Help Me God”, other tracks that stood out were “D.O.A.”,
“Burn It Down”, and “Ride Or Die”, the whole album is bumpin’
it has stuff for the streets, some club bangers, and plenty of
substance.

There is abut 18 tracks with some features but the majority of it
is T-Rock. I don’t mind features, but when I listen to an album
especially one by the likes of T-Rock, K-Rino, NIP, Spice-1 and
others, I want to hear them, their styles, and artistry and T did
not let yall down! I reviewed other projects from him and one thing
is for sure, that is his talent is still here and still elevating!
Over all another great album from a talented vet! -Prezident Bejda

Reviews – Club House Click – Ovaworked Undapaid

club house click

Black Rain Entertainment, II Tone, Mac Montese and a whole crew of features
make up this new Club House Click project “Ovaworked Undapaid” and if you are
a true fan of that Memphis sound, this will not disappoint you.

I have been bumpin II Tone’s music for years and even though the late great
Lord Infamous is no longer with us, Tone and Montese keep the flame lit with
a real solid album and best part is the whole thing is packed full of dope
tracks and you can cop it on Itunes for only $5.99

Some of my favorite tracks include “Blow Ah N-gga Ass Off” which goes straight
for the jugular, then you gotta bump “Sacrifice” which goes in on gossipers. I
also cant stop listening to the final track on the album “Finna.” The beats on
this album can’t be fucked with and like I said it’s only $5.99, no excuse not
to get this album if you like that real shit!

For 2015 I am pleased to see another real dope solid project such as this new
Club House Click “Ovaworked Undapaid” If you have been listening to Black Rain
ENT projects this is a must for your collection. Hat’s off to them for this one!

Reviews – Never – Al Qaeda

never

Never is a veteran West Coast Northern Cali artist and also one of the dopest and most
slept on producers, even though VIA one of his groups, Minority Militia, he landed in the
Guinness Book of World Records for the largest rap group in the world. Never is also the
one behind the Northern Cali underground legendary group Low Down which released
several albums over the years including my favorite “The Valley of Death”.

After a long hiatus from the rap game Never is back with a brand new album entitled
“Al Qaeda” and has enough fire power to blow up any region or even globally because
Never has a fan base that stretches across the planet.

I have reviewed several of Never’s projects over the years including both Low Down and
Minority Militia projects, but have also reviewed the majority of Never’s solo releases and
the new album “Al Qaeda” is a breath of fresh air for 2015. In a day and age where talent,
bars, and substance are lacking, Never came with the truth to pound into your brain along
with some of the dopest beats I have heard in a long time.

Songs like “My Philosophy” bring you back to the late 90s early 2000s almost as if you are
right back in that era when Never, Low Down, and Minority Militia were dropping albums all the time,dropping several albums in one year,
it reminds you of that time, it has that feel. Real hardcore
grimy beat laced with street raps unlike anything any of these lame-stream industry puppets are dropping now days.

Several tracks stands out such as “La La Song”, “Fried Neck Bones” and probably one of if
not my faovrite track on the album “Ghetto Economics” where he is talking about taking
Anti-Depressants and Anti-Psychotics trying to cope with the troubles of life.

I can’t do nothing but tell you to go cop this album immediately, Never has never let us down!

Cop the new album by Never “Al Qaeda” on I-Tunes today!

Reviews – JT Money – Pimpin Gangsta Party

jt money pgp

25 years ago back in 1990 when rap music still had substance and heart A
Miami group formed known as the Poison Clan. On the same label as the legendary
2 Live Crew, Luke Records, the group released 3 albums before departing to Warlock
Records where they released one final PC album.

The group was known for it’s Bass-Dance music fused with hard street gangsta type
playa shit which formed a whole new style. It was like combining the 2 Live Crew
or Too Short with an NWA or Geto Boys.

Eventually JT Money went solo and released Pimpin On Wax which landed him A
Billboard Award and of course a plaque. Since his solo debut in ’99 JT has released
A barrage of independent albums including his latest release 2015’s PGP or
“Pimpin Gangsta Party.” and if you know JT’s music then you already know what kind
of album this is going to be.

He doesn’t let the fans down, giving them enough Bass to shake the dust off Mummy Pussy,
mixed with enough street anthems to satisfy the day one fans. “Let Me See Ya” reunited J with
his former CEO Uncle Luke, “The Lick” takes you back and kinda reminds me of the PC
classic anthem “Action” then he gives you some personal music with “Mama Dearest.”

So in all you are going to get the streets, the clubs, and then he is gonna hit you with
substance and hard truth. JT has always been a well rounded and respected artist and this is
the latest in his arsenal of musical weaponry! -Prezident Bejda
