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

Scoob & Scrap, Leg 1 & Leg 2, Scheme Team, Safari Sisters, and Def Jeff’s dancers the SOUL BROTHERS are just a few names that come to mind when I flashback to some of the illest dancers from the late 80’s-early 90’s…
Surprisingly I have never heard any interviews from the SB clique until now…Big up to Soren Baker for adding another heavy session to the mix.
The “Joint Of The Day” belongs to those VA dudes WU-SYNDICATE….One of the better WU splinter groups, the duo has kept it consistent throughout the years- and on this cut “Elegance” they keep it explosive..
DJ OG-S just dropped the “Rhythm Killer” mixtape that is flooded with demos, promos, and rare jewelry….Scoop up the tape before they disappear for good homepiss!!!!

When IZZY & MAJESTY (Da King & I) released “Contemporary Jeep Music” back in the early 90’s I had high hopes for the duo…The album showcased a penchant for stacked breaks, unpredictable breakdowns, and Izzy was actually nice with his pen…He flipped detailed street stories and sing-songey braggadocio rhymes with a unique, flair that was full of potential….
Somehow ROWDY Records dropped the ball and the rest is history..
FFWD-2020 MAJESTY has made a name for himself producing and IZZY is still clutching mics and going for his….I recently tracked down a somewhat recent interview with IZ that goes into detail about all types of things…
You want the Dub, you can’t handle the dub!!!!!
BUNNY LEE pulls out the bazookas on “Dubbing In The Front Yard & Conflict Dub”…
“Bunny Lee as producer. Prince Jammy as engineer. The Aggrovators making the tracks. It is the Holy Trinity of Jamaican Music. Throughout the years, recorded music has been shaped by some enduring partnerships between producer and engineer, such as Teo Macero and Fred Plautt for Miles Davis, Jerry Wexler and Tom Dowd for Atlantic Records, and George Martin and Geoff Emerick for the Beatles. But possibly none were as prolific as the collaboration between Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee and Prince Jammy at King Tubby’s Studio between 1976 and 1982.
In 1977 and 1982 respectively, Conflict Dub and Dubbing In The Front Yard were released in London as white labels in extremely limited quantities. The two LPs found the triumvirate of Lee, Jammy and The Aggrovators in perfect form with driving instrumentals, flashes of vocal beauty and mixes that ripped apart and rebuilt traditional notions of sonic structure. Due to the nature of their limited release (not to mention the lack of artwork and even titles) the two dub LPs quickly disappeared into that mythic realm of records whispered about by only the most hard-core reggae collectors”.
Psychedelic, haunting, off-kilter, innovative, challenging and original are couple words that come to mind after peeping this masterpiece by the late, great, KING TUBBY…
“Two Big Bull In A One Pen” is essential listening for any dub enthusiast- Do yourself a favor and check in troop.

My man from across the Canadian border DRK just put out this nice piece of heat with DNTE…When it comes to beats DRK always impressed me with his extra rugged, sinister approach to rocking…Never heard of DNTE before, but if this is any indication of what type of chemistry they are dealing with- I got my eyes peeled…

This tradition continues on the H2O EP, featuring Math’s trademark meticulous flow over ethereal production from Debonair P.
