My dude SELFISH (Green Llama) recently told me that he has been rocking his pen game heavy as of late….So I peeped out his Soundcloud page to see what’s good – and just like I figured, jewels on deck…
Those wild and crazy dudes from WILDSTYLE TECHNICIANS have some more new additions to their store, so do the right thing and check in….When you head over there make sure to inform them that the grimy cat from HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD sent you jack, you just might get a discount…
This is the 3rd installment in the AMIRI “Just Digging” series….Glad to see cats still rocking the ASR10 X…

If your a dedicated Hip Hop student than you know that Canada has been releasing fresh material since the 80’s….MICHIE MEE, MAESTRO FRESH WES, DREAM WARRIORS, DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH, INCREDIBLE EAZE (RIP), CHOCLAIR, SOCRATES, DOWN TO EARTH, DANNY- O, BLACK I (RIP), and to many others to mention…
Out of all the Canadian shit I have heard over the years MAESTRO FRESH WES & BLACK I are my favorites…MAESTRO for obvious reasons, but to my ears BLACK I was incredible and ahead of his time…..Witty punchlines, an expansive vocabulary that was flooded with jewelry, descriptive storytelling skills, and a insane off beat- on beat flow that was truly original….
The guy behind the boards for the majority of BI’s joints was the elusive Canadian beatsmith “DRK” who has been concocting productions for over 20 years…
Here are a couple examples of his work, FRESH IS THE WORD.
BLACK I (RIP) “WHERE I’M FROM”..
WYLD BUNCH “ANYTHING GOES” 2011…
Here is the 2nd set of visuals from the GMV3 – The Phoenix Program album by MF GRIMM & myself – “HARMONICS / SONG OF THE WINTER SOLDIER”……Big up to everyone that has went out and supported our musical endeavors (WE SEE YOU)….
If your tired of hearing bozo bars, tinkerbell beats, and sleep inducing concepts – look no further, here is the remedy for all that cornball foolishness…..
FEEL FREE TO SPREAD AROUND.
