NITEBREED (not the one KA was affiliated with) were an obscure horrorcore outfit that had a couple cuts that activated my Hip Hop antennae….For instance “Meditation On Death” should make you want to toss someone smooth off a cliff….

If your on the hunt to cop the slept on NITEBREED “Prince Of Darkness” EP (1994 Reality Check ENT) be prepared to shell out 230 bucks….HAHAHA.

” Only For The Gifted & Lifted : Sach “

Picture 3

It’s inspiring to see one half of the Nonce “NOUKA BASSTYPE / SACH” remaining active after the loss of YUSEF AFLOAT (RIP)….I always thought they had a unique, dusted out, unorthodox approach to rocking that put them in their own lane..

On the “Only For The Gifted & Lifted” project SACH keeps the styling original..

” Boxcutter Brothers Pressure “

Picture 4

I happened to stumble onto this review of the BOXCUTTER BROTHERS (Ayatollah & myself) in XXL magazine on a whim….Just like many of the BATTLEFIELD readers I never bother flipping through this mag, but for some reason I decided to check it out and ended up spotting this article by CHAIRMAN MAO (Red Bull Music Academy, etc)….

Yeah, I can’t front I was totally caught off guard because Boxcutter Brothers is straight up ugly, boulevard barbarian type shit that I never thought in a million years would fit the criteria for such a glossy, pop culture mag…

HAHAHAHA…..

Anyway, click on the photo for further analysis….

” Akbar On The Battlefield : Re-ups “

Picture 4

Over the years I have rocked all types of interviews on Hip Hop Battlefield; SELFISH, BROTHER J, AYATOLLAH, MF GRIMM, KING SHAMEEK, FULLY G, PHIL MOST CHILL, BLAME LO, INSIGHT, and PARIS to name a few….

I also had the opportunity to chop it up with Chiraq / BX rhyme slinger AKBAR awhile back for a round of in-depth jewelry….If you missed it the first time, here is another chance to check in ( I promise I will include all of the interviews on the side bar ASAP)…

1..(HHB) On AKBAR’S GROOVE you rocked over a P – LEE beat that Rasco ended up using on “Unassisted”, and even the ARTIFACTS flipped the same sample source on “What’s Up Now Motherfucker”…..Are you aware of that and how do you feel about it ?

“Well lemme first say that Parker was the 1st to use that loop to my knowledge. He had the loop back in like ’93 but we ended up using it on Jamalski’s album. Later when I heard Rasco’s and Artifacts versions it didnt really phase me because like the late great Guru once said “rap is an art you cant own no loop its how you hook it up and the rhyme style troop”. I personally felt like our version was the illest so its whatever. By the way, Raekwon rocked that loop on “Missing Watch” off the Lex Diamond Story album-now that joint is crazy! I like what they did with it.”

” Early NYC Gangster Mode “

Picture 2

Do yourself a favor and watch RUBBLE KINGS in it’s entirety before this link gets deaded…

“From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. Beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement lay a unfocused rage. Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end the escalating bloodshed. Peace came only through the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come by giving birth to hip-hop culture. Rubble Kings chronicles life during this era of gang rule, tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, and how their actions impacted New York City and the world over”…
