Earlier this week NY MC, Frank Ramz, released his anticipated project ‘Quite Frankly’. Be sure to drop by his Bandcamp and cop the whole thing.
This intro track has too many quotables to pick out just one and gives you insight to Ramz’ potential to be a top lyricist in years to come. Press play.
We didn’t see this one coming. The chemistry between all the artists on this one works while not feeling forced or contrived. Shouts to AWKWORD.
“Bars & Hooks” appears on AWKWORD’s World View LP, the first-ever 100% for-charity global Hip Hop project, dropping 2012 via The DJ Booth (DJBooth.net). This new New York City grime anthem is produced by Mr. Shot Caller himself, Harry Fraud, and features verses from Brownsville’s Sean Price and The Kid Daytona, from uptown, with a hook from The Incomparable Shakespeare.
NY based (Milwaukee bred) MC, Signif, drops some new visuals from her Embracing Rejection project that was released independently last year. If you haven’t checked it out yet, we forgive you.
Prod. by Gee Wiz
29 tracks of hits, rare demos, remixes, outtakes and more compiled by NY’s own Mick Boogie.
The beat God has wrapped up his US ‘Claps & Slaps’ Tour and is now releasing a 3-part behind the scenes documentary. Maybe a UK arm of the tour in the near future?
This is probably one of the best signings between two entities in recent times. I couldn’t really see a better fit for Homeboy other than Stones Throw.
‘Chimera’ is out now.
As I’m sure you all know by now, Tupac was resurrected for a day to perform at Coachella. Priorities huh? Anyway, FreshNerd had some very valid reactions and possibly some questions we should all ponder before “hologramming”(is that a word?) ourselves:
Kutmah speaks on life in L.A. and his compilation ‘Worldwide Family Vol. 2′ out today on Brownswood Recordings.
