Jay Rock - Boomerang (Video)

     

I got one as a gift once. It was a legit one, supposedly actually used to skin Kangaroos. I threw it like I was told to and it didn't come back. Instead it landed on concrete and broke...

Beat and song is nice though!

Maino and Trae Tha Truth - Tony Montana Freestyles


The chorus for this song is probably the most ignorant thing I've heard...but the beat goes and the 2 dudes go hard on their respective fronts.

Maino


Trae Tha Truth

Phil Adé - Nightmares (Anti-Freeze Freestyle)


Oh my...this guy makes me more and more of a fan as he releases more and more music. This guy goes in over the Pac Div "Anti-Freeze" joint.

Shawn Chrystopher - Chuck D Handles All My Day to Days


An ode to the Public Enemy frontman

Jelani - Race Matters


In 3rd grade, my Pops took to me to the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture up on 135th Street to listen to a dialogue between Professor Jack Salzman and Dr. Cornel West on the topic of race relations in America, particularly issues surrounding the Jewish and African-American communities. At the time, Dr. West was promoting his book “Race Matters”, which, amongst other things, puts a magnifying glass to the current state of Black Folk in America. It touches on a range of topics that we’ve been dealing with since we got here, many of which have snowballed into huge present-day issues. Pops bought a copy of the book in the lobby of the Schomburg, and after he read it, he made me read some of the essays that it contains and then we discussed them at length.

From then on, I had a reel keen sense of what We were going through in America. Add to that my various studies of Af-Am History throughout my matriculation in academia, and I have a pretty thorough grasp on what the deal was and is; I always keep my finger on the pulse. Years later, here’s a track inspired by and entitled after Dr. West’s book, “Race Matters”. I touch on a range of topics that affect the Diaspora, from self hate, to Fox News, to the Natural vs Good hair crisis, to Colorism (light skin vs dark skin), to the relationship between African-Americans and 1st generation immigrants from Africa, to racial profiling in Retail establishments, and so on and so forth.

The official single off of his Shady album, Radioactive and with your boy Lil' Jon, we gettin' crunk in the South. What y'all think? Yelawolf comes out with two types of songs, either dope super lyrical Alabama music or "I Just Wanna Party" Music...so Imma bump this for the next little bit!

Hassaan Mackey - Something

Metermaids - Graveyard Shift


I started just randomly listening to new guys...and this guy pops up. Not bad when you're produced by the legendary 9th Wonder!

Busta Rhymes Previews Something AMAZING!

     

I'm a long time Busta Rhymes fan...I'm also a long time DMX fan. So recently Kanye and Jigga dropped Otis off of their Watch the Throne album and the joint was crazy! Now, different cats in the game dropped their own freestyle on the joint and its been aight at best (so far the best being Styles P and Jadakiss) but now Busta and Earl Simmons (who's fresh out of jail and this is the first time he hits the mic) are dropping a freestyle joint that left DJ Khaled speechless (and that guy goes off on a tangent saying "We The Best" or "I'm On One" or "Hustle Hard" over and over and over again so you know if you got him to shut his mouth, its legit!)

Drops tomorrow...I can't wait!

Styles P - It's OK ft. Jadakiss (Video)

Machine Gun Kelly...Lace the Fuck Up!


So there's this skinny lanky white kid from Clevland who spits with a tenacious speed that got a lot of attention over the last couple of years. From winning an amateur night at the Apollo to being showcased on MTV, Machine Gun Kelly has been working on his grind.

He's got a sweet story that hits home. Gets kicked out of his home, homeless, has a daughter at the age of 19, fired from his fast food joint...he began his uphill struggle when he got taken into his friend's home and began doing what he wanted to do...rap. Check out his journey through the highs and lows down below...

     

So now rocking with Diddy and Bad Boy Records, its going to be interesting to see what comes of this young spitta. A lot of hot dudes coming out in hip hop...check out some of MGK down below...and oh yeah, Lace Up!

     

     

     

You wanna lace up? Grab the dude's mixtape down below!
