“Know How” (Video) by Goody | @itsgoody_

“Lately I feel like a chip on my shoulder/But I been so hungry I ate that shit too…”  – Goody 

Chicago emcee Goody continues to solidify himself as an emcee that listeners should stay watching. Having shared the stage with the likes of  Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa in 2016, Goody recently released visuals for his fan favorite track “Know How”.  I love the hook on this track which basically gives you a dope formula for his “know how” (hint – stay on your pivot). And, bar for bar Goody reminds us why we still like a “classical rap style” if you will, from time to time. Y’all enjoy!

#MakMashUp – “Starboy/Way Up Freestyle” [Video] by @FlyTerryMak

It’s Friday, so why not flex on ’em with a freestyle mashup compliments of Terry Mak. Earlier, Terry Mak dropped visuals for two lyrically pleasing freestyle gems backed by The Weeknd’s magnetizing “Star Boy” and Meek Mill’s “Way Up”. In the world of freestyles, this is actually refreshing. Enjoy!

Cake: “What We Do” (Official Video) – Isis Ohui | @IsisOhui

Houston’s Isis Ohui serves up hip hop music in her visual for “How We Do” just the way I like to see it – above par emceeing and (in most scenes) with a microphone. Thats the “cake”. Isis is also cut from the cloth of emcees with impeccable flows (Biggie, J. Cole) that makes you say “ohhh shit!!” Thats the “eat it too.”

Devour and enjoy!

Isis’s latest project is “Better Than Ever” and is now available on SoundCloud

“Credible Threat” by Zeroer |@Zeroermusic (feat. Yak Nasty that Nilla) 

In this day and age, there is something uncomfortable about receiving a video submission entitled “Credible Threat” with the whole military covert operation as the working theme. But, after absorbing the visuals for a minute, I realized (after wiping the sweat off my forehead) that Seattle Washington’s Zeroer and Yak Nasty are dope ass emcees. We see your Tech9ine influence Zeroer, and whoooo… thanks for such an aggressive intro to The Greener Side of Hip Hop. Please enjoy… And remember this is entertainment folks!  

“Credible Threat” is the first release from Zeroer’s upcoming project “Fusion”.

“Plant A Seed” by @theholstarmusic ft. Chisamo

Not all love stories reach their full potential, put still you must water love with love right? If you agree then you’ll enjoy the latest single release from The Holstar entitled “Plant A Seed”. In his signature storytelling fashion, The Holstar delievers passionate lyrics over piano and violin laced track about love that is not reciprocated. Sometimes we all can’t reach “the Heavens” when it comes to matters of the heart, even with the best intentions. Enjoy!

Blue Collar Hustler: “Bookman” – By @BINKSWINSTON x @Shyftshift_g

Ha!  I just realized as I started typing this post, that Binks Winston and K. Nightshift inserted themselves into the Evans family photo which serves as the artwork for their “The James Evans Mixtape”. With DJ Crimson on deck, their latest project is dedicated to the blue collar hustler, the hard workers, yep the James Evanses of this world who take care of theirs. Recently, this Oakland duo released the entertaining and raw (see Binks almost get his revolutionary “wig pushed back” when the music drops) visuals for their track “Bookman”. Laced with Nas’s soulful “Get Down”,  Binks Winston and K. Nightshift deliver the lyrical goods for what I heard Binks describe on the track as “black ass Bay Area music”. Hence, even Huey P. Newton is channeled in the visuals. So, having said that, check it out for yourself, and get drop kicked into the black power 1970s. Enjoy!

About the mixtape…

“The James Evans Mixtape” is a tribute to the blue collar hustler, the working class hero, and the old-school family man. It’s also a short and sweet run through some classic hip hop tracks, from Biggie and Nas to OutKast and the Dogg Pound.” 

The mixtape is now available on SoundCloud

#BlackMusic – “Filthy Swine Flesh” by Infinito2017 – 

“White teacher told black student/Don’t make me call Trump/Get you sent back to Africa/Whatever’s clever punk/Go ‘head do it/May be the most important thing you doin’…” – Infinito 2017

Hashtag Black Music. That hashtag caught my eye when I was listening  to Infinito 2017’s new track “Filthy Swine Flesh” on his SoundCloud channel earlier. Essentially, if Infinito 2017 is not breaking down sub par emcees, highlighting his artistic prowess, making us think on a higher level, addressing social issues, etc., etc., he IS making music by him for us. This is not a dope, hookless, full of uninterrupted bars track for nothing. So, listen up, stay woke and eat this knowledge. 

“Filthy Swine Flesh” is a track off Infinito 2017’s latest release “Indigenous Unification Inside The Endless Nothing” which is now available on bandcamp

Instrumentals: “Beats by Skulastic Vol. 2” by @Skulastic 

I hope to see some collabos soon with Skulastic. Her instrumentals are fire. Now about “Beats Vol. 2” from Skulastic’s PR Team:

 “As a follow-up to “Beats By Skulastic”, Canadian female MC & Producer, Skulastic releases “Beats By Skulastic Vol. 2”. On this release Skulastic bangs out 7 hard-hitting, gritty, boom-bap inspired instrumentals. Mixed and Mastered by Canada’s own Rob The Viking, each track has it’s own unique vibe yet the album streams cohesively as whole. Track 7, Slow Fuse (Bonus Beat) serves as a preview of “Beats By Skulastic Vol. 3” which will be something more “chill-hop” inspired…”. 

Chill with your pen game and enjoy!

“Polynesian Sand” – Trey Coastal | @TreyCoastal

“Baby girl wanted to go to an island/so I took her to Alameda…”. Only a Bay Area native like myself can both chuckle at and appreciate Trey Coastal’s opening line for their track “Polynesian Sand”. Heck, my own family started their California roots on “Alameda Island”.  Now, the visuals for the track catapults the Bay Area vibe into another realm as emcees Philip Bank$ and Cam Moss are filmed at different locations in Oakland exchanging lyrics while seated on an inflatable couch.  Even the aerial view of Lake Merritt in the first seconds  makes one think.about some jet ski fun – but nah, it’s two emcees building on some lyrical cake at the lake. Trey Coastal also includes producer Rye Mann. “Polynesian Sand” can be found on Trey Coastal’s debut album “No Lay-Ups (Side A)”. Enjoy!
