#eMceeCrushMondays: V.A. tha Gray | @VAthaGray


Today The Greener Side of Hip Hop is NAWFSideReppin’ as we salute Nile Music Group artist V.A. tha Gray as today’s #eMceeCrushMonday. This Dallas emcee is never short on delivering poignant messages via ingenious lyrics that has often made me think carefully about the right side of “wrong” – in other words their is always another viewpoint to consider. This Sista love emcees that make me think! (See the definition of sapiosexual) V.A. tha Gray we salute you!


“I Like Ya Style” – @InnocentFlow13 feat. @Mugga_Boy (prod. by @CoolFDBeats)


“I Like ‘Ya Style” is another quality Cool FD produced track from Innocent?’s double album “Love It Or Hate”. The video is directed by Tek of the legendary Smif n’ Wessun. And the verdict on this track? I love it – and you will most certainly enjoy it!

Purchase “Love It or Hate It” now on iTunes.


#eMceeCrushMondays – @MikeMelinoe


Alright, today’s inaugural #eMceeCrushMonday goes to Detroit’s Mike Melinoe. After hearing Mike Melinoe’s “Hideous Prophet” (of his Natures of PropeR Element$ project) track I was both blown away and smitten by his disgustingly gritty rhyme style. Emcees are beautiful and Mike Melinoe I salute you!

#eMceeCrushMondays… Starting 3/23/15


I have this love affair with the way
Them lyrics roll of your lips,

And the way those bars Picasso
Life in the forms of similies, Metaphors and punchlines.

From the depths of
Old school, lunchroom
Table beats coupled with a freestyle,

To masterfully spreading your
Opus to the voracity of the thirsty masses….

Emcee, your skills got me open.

“Well, Actually (En Realidad)” by Jean Grae | @JeanGreasy

You know who she is… So, I’ll just leave this right here for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!


“New Jack (Yesterday)” by Quincy Mosby | @GoQuincy ft. Cleve

I haven’t posted any new music from Oakland’s Quincy Mosby in a minute but if you check his SoundCloud page he is constantly creating that “hot shit for that ass”. I admire Quincy’s unique flow and thought provoking subject matters. (see “Dark Skinned Jermaine”). His latest track is called “New Jack (Yesterday)” ft. Cleve. On this track Quincy reminds you that sometimes you have to leave shit where it began – “that was yesterday”. Enjoy!

It’s Your Doomsday: “Keeps Me Alive” by i$O iNDIES | @iSOiNDIES (prod. by Jahb Less)


This is a new track from a young Brooklyn duo who’s plan is to take over the hip hop game and not become a statistic. Yep, to hell with society’s stereotypical fate and vision for a young black male – that’s THEIR doomsday. Help support these brothers by listening to and sharing this track. Enjoy!

About the track…

“Keeps Me Alive” is a track that represents unity. It defines the state of mind of two young black males who want to inspire their generation and the Hip-Hop community by achieving a better outlook on life and clinging to what keeps them alive – music.”

“Letter to Nipsey” – Q Major | @QMajor_SC ( blasianbeats)

Doing it on his own, Q Major drops a new single entitled “Letter to Nipsey” from his latest EP “Long Story Short”.

About the project…

“On this project you will here familiar Singles such as “Sanity” and “Boom Bap and Nigga Naps “. This E.P will travel through Q Major current life, giving his fans the inside scoop on his everyday life. You will have to keep up, and take notes while you travel through past and present events, that have occurred and shaped Q Major’s career.”

Listen to “Long Story Short” now on SoundCloud

VIDEO: “Right Here” – @AaronCohenRap x @AbGoHard1 prod. by @KONTRABANDK


“Uglyboyz is about embracing your defects and not trying to be a perfect little image conscious pretty boy, like everyone you see on TV. It’s about keeping things real and raw.” – Aaron Cohen

“Right Here” is the first single and video release from the joint project “Ugly Boyz” by Aaron Cohen and AbGoHard. Produced by IKC’s Kemal this is a pretty grimy track/you can kick rocks anthem and it’s not on that “retro flow”. Aaron kicks it off by totally “Nasing” the lyrics and proclaiming “I’m not God’s Son, I’m a God son.” Yeah, these emcees are “Right Here” and are here to stay, so listen up and Enjoy!!
