” Reading Is Fundamental “

Screen Shot 2021-09-19 at 8.11.55 PM

One of the benefits of living in this current era is that we have access to many things that were once kept in the dark…If your a seeker of knowledge, and truly dedicated – you can become somewhat of an expert on a wide range of topics , via You Tube / Google University…

But in my opinion ; nothing beats hardcore field research and experience…

After 20 years of putting out music, touring, etc – BLUEPRINT definitely has the experience to back up some of his theories in this book, and that’s why I copped it (His podcast with Illogic is also worth checking out)…



” “Attack Of The Killer Demos – 34 “

Screen Shot 2021-09-19 at 7.42.59 PM

If your on the hunt for some demo morale, you just found it troopers….This time around the enigma, the Jazzman, the producer / MC, the Cenobite, the Group War Committee repper – GODFATHER DON emerges from the shadows with slab of wax from the seemingly never-ending stash box (Exotic Essentials) …..

The album includes 8 vocal tracks as well as 9 instrumentals shorties from the vaults. Available in a limited run on black as well as grey colored 2LP, on limited CD and cassette plus digitally on all major platforms.

” Nobodies Flunky “

We all have the freedom to say whatever we want, WHENEVER we want, but you still have to carefully govern your speech because once your in the court of public opinion- the public has the right to deal with you however they deem fit…Case in point, a few days ago on the DRINK CHAMPS podcast – NOREAGA, MICKEY FACTS & DJ EFN not only disrespected certain WU – TANG extended members, they went as far as referring to them as flunkies…..WOW.

We all have our private Hip Hop talks where dudes get thrown under the bus, clowned and all that type of shit – but when you have a broadcast with millions of people following,  and your spouting out fuckery at this type of level, you should expect the unexpected…I never looked at KILLER PRIEST or the Suns Of Man as baggage handlers…I never looked at Shyheim, Wu Syndicate or Killarmy as weed carriers….Matter of fact, many of those cats that I just mentioned have better and more extensive catalogues than Mr. Super Thug….

Don’t get me wrong , we all have a right to our opinions, but some shit is just not going to fly….PERIOD…

Needless to say I was extra excited when KILLER PRIEST brought together HELL / HEAVEN RAZAH, SHYHEIM, MYALANSKY, 4TH DISCIPLE, 9TH PRINCE, TRUE MASTER & a few other KILLER BEEZ to address the obvious disrespect thrown their way…..


” Jay Nice : Jig Is Up “

Since Friday is here it’s only right that I slap you with some new flavors to rock out with….Delaware MC J-NICE connects with LA producer JIG IN THE BASEMENT for a nice dose of rawness on the “JIG IS UP P.T2” release…With a cover like this you should already know that no games are being played…

” Breeze Brewin Steez “

Finally got around to giving BREEZE BREWIN’S latest album some spins today….Truth be told, BREEZE is a top notch story teller, and to me that was plainly obvious from his Juggaknot day’s (Clear Blue Skies still gives me the chills when I hear it), and his descriptive bars on “Prince Among Thieves” still stand the test of time…

Give this joint “Road Rage” a listen front to back for further analysis of his pen game…Produced by SEBB.

” RIP – 12 O’clock & Murdock “

Screen Shot 2021-08-16 at 3.56.25 PM

“Shit is crazy real in the field / I watched a nigga’s blood get spilled over five dollar bills…Major drug deals on the real / I watched a nigga get mills and his bitch get em killed….In this American dream to get some cream / your facing a beam or chasing magazines…It aint all about the fame, silly ass dames / see a gold record and you changed…And for all you niggas selling cocaine, your to blame / black peoples laws aint the same…Thats the tale in my hood, niggas is up to no good / you better watch it in them hoods”….

Back when the Wu could do absolutely no wrong, ODB & 12 OCKLOCK ASSASSIN cliqued up for one of the most rawest non-album (Came out on the Tales From The Hood Soundtrack initially), cuts in the history of hardcore rap…

“Old Dirty’s Back” captures an era that I still find myself submerged in – Ugly off beat drums, random death threats, high powered dusted bars, and that certain frequency that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the song is over…

When I heard of 12 o’clocks & Murdocks’s murder recently- I had a instant flashback to this song and the vibes it gave me / gives me…From all the details that I read, it’s a damn tragedy that most likely could have been avoided…It’s also a tragedy that it’s very difficult to find much info on either one of these talented brothers, that were not only direct cousins of ODB, but also connected to one of the illest crews in Hip Hop…

Do yourself a favor, turn this shit up and catch a zone..RIP

” Monday Heat “

Some of the HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD massive might actually be surprised that I dig some of DARK LO’s shit….Granted I do not bang everything he puts out (If the beats don’t rock I avoid it like the black plague) – but when he links with VDON the duo definitely have their moments….

Give their latest offering “CHARLIE POPE” some decent burn – if your in the grimy lane like myself…

” Snotty : Other Side Of The Wall “

“They say the good die young, I’m going to live to a hundred / You name it, I done it, these shells make you empty your stomach”…….


Recently peeped some new shit by a cat named SNOTTY….”Other Side Of The Wall” definitely had it’s moments- fully produced by Don Carrera….

Give it some decent burn if you know what’s best for you..


” Yusef Afloat – Foreign Objects “

Glad to see more unreleased YUSEF AFLOAT / NONCE material hit the world….I wonder what type of creative musical output YUSEF would be dealing with in 2021 if it wasn’t for his untimely demise (It’s still somewhat of a mystery what exactly happened to him)…RIP 

Hearing joints from the era transport me directly back to the 90’s …

“Next up on “90’s Tapes” are the demo 4-track recordings of Yusef Afloat’s “Foreign Objects” and “Hard Times”.

Known as one half of legendary Westcoast group The Nonce (along with Nouka Basstype aka Sach), MC/producer/musician Yusef Afloat produced tracks for Aceyalone, Supherb, and Figures Of Speech. He also appeared on the original 1994 release of Project Blowed. On May 21, 2000, Yusef “Afloat” Muhammad was found dying on the side of Freeway 110 in Los Angeles, he was 28 years old. The cause of his death is still unknown.

“When I listen to Yusef now, I’m reminded of what I felt then and that is he knew his time on Earth was limited. The tone was new, stern authoritative on his views and expressions of Hip Hop. I knew he was talking to me and each one of our peers. The tapes have been safe for 20 years thanks to Dee Skee for maintaining archives at Weightless Audio. The implications that I knew someone who may have said things because their span was going to be cut. I’m thinking he saw clearer than we could.”

” Explosive Breaks “

Screen Shot 2021-06-07 at 10.37.05 PM

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..

” Under The Radar Heat “

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)…


” Beat Of The Day “

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…


” Boxcutter Brothers 2021 “


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…


” 3/5 an M.C. “

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..
