It’s been a minute since we caught up with PRhyme, BKA has the hard hitting creative connection of DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9″. The duo has been on a bit of a hiatus since dropping the their self-titled debut last year, but with a deluxe edition of the record on the way, there’s plenty to look forward to from Preemo and Royce. The rugged and raw team has released an extended version of “MODE”, their beastly Logic assisted contribution to the Eminem curated Southpaw OST. Hear even more bars from Logic and Royce Da 5’9″ on the extended cut of PRhyme’s “MODE” above.
Cali crew OverDoz., have had us waiting on their debut album for a minute now. However, they’ve also been hitting us with a steady stream of jams while we wait for 2008. The latest release, “Why We Never Leave The Ghetto,” is another reminder of why Overdoz.’new album will be well worth the wait. Listen as OverDoz. team up with Terrace Martin and Fred Wreck on this funky new joint. Let us know what you think of the track.
Brooklyn’s Joey Bada$$ and the UK’s Glass Animals have found a sonic space that lays dead center for a new collaboration. The rockers joined young Badmon in a studio in NYC recently to chisel out a gem, marrying the melancholic waviness of their rock leaning sounds with the unbridled swagger of one of Brooklyn’s best; the result is “Lose Control.” Bada$$ bruises bars with the best of them over a suite built of electronic bleeps, bloops and spooky twangs, blending their respective sounds on one grizzly new joint that reflects their mutual admiration.

Skeme has been steadily putting in work since ’07, and although he doesn’t have the same amount of hype as someone like, say, ScHoolboy Q, he’s shown growth with each new album, proving the cliché that hard work truly does pay off. The rapper’s Ingleworld series has been a fan-favorite, and has helped Skeme’s stock rise. After giving away Ingleworld 2 for free, Ingleworld 3 is on the way, and it’ll strictly be a commercial release. Judging by the album’s first single, it’ll be worth the monetary value. We’re excited to premiere the album’s first release, “Anyways.” The record is a whimsical banger filled with a hollow chiming that contrasts Skeme’s growl. Stay tuned for more details on Ingleworld 3.
Freddie Gibbs could rap over an infant crying on an airplane and it would be fire. A soulful Ski Beatz instrumental, of course, is preferable, and that’s what we get with their latest collaboration “The World Is My Ashtray.” The Gibbs/Ski duo previously linked up to make “Illegal” in 2011. They both bring their A game on “The World Is My Ashtray.” Let’s hope it is a taste of things to come because Ski brings out the best of Gangsta Gibbs. Listen to the track and let us know what you think.
Adult Swim‘s singles series continues with a fiery new joint from diabolical duo Run The Jewels. Killer Mike and El-P come through with an explosive one. “Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)” begins with a bang, moves with dissonant synth trills and pulsing power chords and is capped off with booming bars. All of which stacks up quite nicely next to the recent release of their remix project Meow The Jewels, featuring feline frequencies harnessed by Prince Paul, Just Blaze, Little Shalimar, Alchemist, Dan The Automator and more. Hear the latest from Run The Jewels.
Illa J shares an early stream of his self-titled album. The album comes entirely produced by Canadian beat freakers Potatohead People, who have crafted a sonic suite that’s perfectly tailored for the half rap/half croon styles. It’s a sharp and fluid outing that has something for the kush-kissing Hip-Hop head and the more astute, all in one brilliantly dope package. Stream Illa J’s new self-titled project and join him this Wednesday, October 7th at Brooklyn’s Cameo Gallery for the album’s release party. Preorder Illa J on Bandcamp today.
For those east coasters or middle Americans who may be out of the broadcast range for J Rocc‘s always dope Adventures In Stereo program, please trust, it’s a sure shot with each and every outing. The Beat Junkies alum uploaded an expansive, 2 hour installment of AIS, featuring sets from the Beat Konducta & Chocolate Boy Wonder, BKA Madlib & Pete Rock. In an episode entitled The Madlib Carnival Special, the legends of MPCs and SPs, celebrate their sonic smashing contemporaries, as well as those that came well before them with an eclectic pair of sets that touch on deep funk, heady jazz, modern Hip-Hop classic, and unreleased gems from the late J Dilla. Hear Madlib & Pete Rock spin everything from Jay Dee to The JBs on a very special installment of J Rocc’s Adventures In Stereo.
Prefuse 73 covers a massive amount of ground in relatively little time on his new “Narco Breakups” mix, which sees the likes of Oddisee, Vince Staples, Fettway and Lianne La Havas all mixing it up.

Lemon, a fruit popular for its therapeutic properties, helps maintain your immune system and protects you from the clutches of most types of infections. It also plays the role of a blood purifier. Lemon is a fabulous antiseptic and works wonders for people having heart problems, owing to its high potassium content. You should be using purified water and it should be lukewarm not scalding hot. You want to avoid ice cold water, since that can be a lot for your body to process and it takes more energy to process ice cold water than the warm. Always use fresh lemons, organic if possible, never bottled lemon juice. Make it a part of your daily routine to drink a glass of warm lemon water in the morning and enjoy its health benefits. (See picture above for all health benefits.)
Last month, Dam-Funk graced the world with an expansive new edition to his synth-strutting catalogue in the Invite The Light LP. The record featured a grip of guest appearances from funk legends new and old, including Q-Tip, Snoop Dogg, Leon Sylvers III & IV and one titan of the canon in Junie Morrison. And while the album opened and closed with transmissions from Morrison, today Dam’s offered a blazing outtake from their sessions together, aptly-titled “Magic.” It’s a bubbling, glittery piece of funksmanship that transcends generations. Stream Dam-Funk & Junie Morrison’s “Magic”, and and grab a copy of Invite The Light on iTunes today.
Joey Bada$$ unloads his hypnotic flow on “Aim High,” his new single released exclusively through Scion AV. Over the minimalist beat of “Aim High,” Bada$$ greats gruff on the verses and breezes through the chorus. He even takes the time to recognize his Jamaican heritage with a little patois. The track is produced by Harry Fraud & Alchemist.
Rubble Kings, the new in-depth documentary directed by Shan Nicholson takes us back to some of New York City’s worst days, when young gang wars riddled the Bronx until, somehow, a shaky peace was struck. That pact of non-violence meant that thousands of city dwellers needed a new form of recreation, and with all those turntables and records lying around, you know that the rest is history. We’re pleased to put you on to the new Rubble Kings mixtape, a labor of love commissioned by Nicholson and constructed by himself, DJ Tahleim, Sammy Needlz and Rok One. It features not only some of Hip-Hop’s earliest classics but its “foundational texts”, the soul, funk, jazz and rock that was spilling out of living room windows and into the alleyways on which wars were fought and, later, dance battles commenced. Much like New York City itself, it is divided into five sections based on the musical genres that influenced these notorious gangs. From the anthemic soul and funk of the Black struggle, to the salsa and Boogaloo of the Latin Barrios, to the gritty and abrasive psychedelic rock of White gangland. A true epic tale of war and peace, “Rubble Kings: The Mixtape” serves as a direct sonic glimpse into the heart and soul of this pivotal moment in the city’s history. Listen above and share your thoughts.
New DITC Ent Artist, YearRound Records Affiliate and Enterprize entertainment C.E.O Fisher finally releases the highly anticipated
lead off single from his upcoming “GODmc” project titled “Premier Fish”, produced and scratched by the legendary DJ Premier and recorded in the legendary D&d studios before it closed it doors forever. Over a classic feeling DJ Premier track Fisher showcases his lyrical ability and drops subtle jewels in the process.
Fans of the NBA often wonder what life is like for the league’s players. Sure, there’s a lot of pluses, but for some, it’s harder than you might think. Charlotte Hornets guard Jeremy Lin creates this how-to guide with some of his friends and teammates from around the league, offering a behind the scenes look for NBA athletes, from communication to fashion to dance moves.
Beginning at roughly 1 am EST, the ever flourishing producer proceeded to drop eight tracks in total, with cuts ranging from the pop-n-lock anthem “NOBODY BEATS THE KAY” to a fiendish dance club flip of A Tribe Called Quest’s “Oh My God.” There’s also the unfinished disco boogie joint “WHATEVA U WANT,” which keenly flips Gene Dunlap’s “This One on Me,” and the gooey house jawn “Go Ahead.” There’s something for everyone to enjoy in these uploads, even if they are just newly cleared cobwebs taken out the back of his external hard drive. If the man’s lost his mind, we hope he never finds it. Tropical storm Joaquin may be headed for the Eastern seaboard, but hurricane Kay has already flooded the damn game.
Pro Era’s Kirk Knight takes some time out to pay his respect to the dearly departed with “Dead Friends.” Says Kirk, “Rip Shamir, Steelo, Junior B and all the fallen angels we all lost.” The track features Noname Gypsy and Thundercat. You can find this one on Knight’s studio debut LP, Late Knight Special, which is due out on October 30th via Cinematic Music Group. You can pre-order it here.
