” Explosive Breaks “
Do yourself a favor and peep the latest mix by SKAMROK- and while your at it scoop up a copy of the 45 jack !! Make sure you tell him that the grimey dude from HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD sent you..
“Joint Of The Day”
This cut by BODY BAG BEN & RICK HYDE is definitely worthy of some mixtape burn….” Voodoo” rocks all types of greasy talk over spaced out ruggedness, with a splash of some well timed scratches always helps the momentum…
Be on the lookout for the “Hyde The Body Bag” album this Summer..
With so many releases dropping on the daily- it’s easy for fly shit to slip through the cracks unfortunately…It doesn’t help that many blogs / websites dick ride whatever certain “tastemakers” gravitate towards and hardly give projects a decent listen before re-posting…
Recently stumbled across some interesting shit from LA that made my antennae activate…
Producer JIG IN THE BASEMENT rocks a dusted out, atmospheric approach to crafting beats that is worthy of your attention, and MC LO -ESTATE constructs his bars on some ole stream of consciousness, esoteric, unpredictable other shit that is hard to pin down (Which is a good thing when many MC’s out there are boring and stale as a motherfucker)…
HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD TOP PICKS “FADE AWAY”, “LATE MESSAGE”, “MAX HEADROOM”, “POWERLESS”, “SHO NUFF”, AND “8 MEN” …
I’m going to catapult you back to 2017 for some GREEN LLAMA heat….The City Slick album by DECAY & FLUENT definitely had its moments….But one particular song really stuck out to me – “Black Composer” rocks a key sample that sounds like it was ran through a psychotic blender….
Always been a fan of unpredictable stretched out 4 bar chops….Fluent also rocks a heavy low pass filter that rumbles underneath the main sample in a way that will make your speakers quake…
VENDETTA VINYL BROADCAST #9 features the “BOX CUTTER BROTHERS”…
AYATOLLAH (QUEENS NYC) & DRASAR MONUMENTAL (VIETNAM, CALIFORNIA) linked up last month for some live radio action (K-BOO)…These two let off a nonstop barrage of unpredictable sample abuse at the highest level… 70 minutes of exclusives, remixes, instrumentals and all types of heavy explosives on deck…
DO NOT SLEEP…..FEEL FREE TO SPREAD AROUND!!!! BIG UP TO THE “ON ONE POSSE” IN THE PDX FOR MAKING IT HAPPEN.
Big up to that Jersey kid WISE INTELLIGENT for moving forward in this new era with some literary jewelry…If your in the mood to catch a heavy zone- you know the motherfucking drill..
I absolutely have to pay homage to cats like SHOWBIZ & MILANO for still putting out solid music without all the extra, modern day shenanigans…Both of them still sound hungry, determined and fresh even though they have been rocking for decades at this point….
Instead of complaining about the current state of affairs – please go out and show support to the cats that truly fucking deserve it…
Last night I peeped the duo’s latest project “Eating But Still Hungry” and I was impressed…SHOWBIZ is still bringing that BX heat to the table- and MILANO is still rocking unpredictable wordplay, and all types of other shit that deserves your full, undivided attention..
The most dangerous men in the world are ones that spit ILL bars over their own ILL production….
MINNESOTA happens to fall into that category…He is mostly known for his beats, but truth be told, the way he puts his words together is on some total “other” shit if you play close attention…Nonstop parables, and godfather jewelry is the mode he operates from…
On his latest offering – the MONEY BOSS PLAYER goes for broke with more of that true to the grain, hardcore block general type shit….For instance on ” The Jump” he goes into vivid detail about revenge killings, crime sagas gone sour, and all types of other explosive shit..
This is the first post of 2021-
I guess you can say I have been on a sabbatical from certain distractions…It takes an enormous amount of energy to be the person that I am, and for me to operate at 100 percent sometimes I have to focus and accurately measure my time management…
- HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD has been up and rocking since 2008- the world has changed dramatically since then, but I can honestly say that I haven’t…Still the same no- nonsense B-Boy regardless of current trends, dick riding cults, emotional sheeple, cats jockeying for a position that doesn’t exist, loud mouth fake critics, etc…
While the majority scramble on social media for validation – I honestly could a fuck less..Many seem pre- occupied with numbers and traffic..
But I hate to enlighten you – Numbers do lie…
Bots, politics, secret societies have pretty much taken over social media at this point…It’s basically a corny social engineering project that leads many down a portal of depression and desperately trying to keep up with the “Jones’s”…
The beauty of having my own space outside of social media, is that I’m not beating you over the head about anything…I’m not trying to constantly sell you something…I’m not on a quest to sway public opinion…I’m not operating some type of agenda to harness your attention…
I’m just hitting you off with flavors – no extras, no illusion , no high school pissing contest, no bullshit…
So keep your eyes peeled on this side because you are going to see more activity over here..Salute to all of those that still check in ( I SEE YOU ) –
Now that I got that out of the way- I recently rocked a little interview action with “Voices Behind Walls” out of Texas…
“Drasar describes his music as, “a wall of sound…bass, treble, and highs. HEAVY! My music is a sonic outlet of anger and frustration.” Instead of taking out what he describes as vitriol on others, he transfers aggressive energy into music. “It’s more productive to me in that fashion, many people don’t have a creative outlet, and I believe that pent up frustration manifest itself in a myriad of shortcomings and dysfunctionality…This [music] is my tool for expressing my deepest thoughts and opinions.”
WRECK WEEK # 5
