New Jersey emcee The Illz posted this on his facebook and mentioned this was directed by Kristopher Rey-Talley. I know Kristopher Rey-Talley is always on point with his visuals and ended up liking the song. I have seen Michael's stuff floating around the blogs for some time and never gave it a chance. Apparently he is to drop a full- project tonight. I will be downloading without hesitation.
"This is Episode 2 of The Road To Mike Classic's Mixtape "Where Amazing Happens" scheduled to drop in 2012!" This time we allowed access into a band rehearsal with Tolu. MIKE CLASSIC LINKS MIKECLASSIC.COM
Watch the recap video from the sold out showcase at The Music Hall of Williamsburg featuring performances from Skyzoo & Statik Selektah, Kidz In The Hall, Smif N Wessun, Jean Grae, Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli & Buckshot with the live band.
I forgot this was dropping today. Its funny though because I was just watching Cudi walking dogs
on "How To Make It In America" and in the short he kills someone watching a dog. Irony.

This has to be one of the illest track artwork I have seen a minute.
"The first official single from the “V FOR VENDETTA” album is “FAGGOTRON” produced by BBR.It’s something never heard of before, something different, something that will be Victorious.The Album drops November 5th on the Official Bandcamp site.Download it below and spread the word, the Krusader is here for you niggaz. 4FUN SET. Krusaders WE OWN THE SKY."
"Disturbed is the result of watching a whole lotta sci fi/horror joints and loving how the stories played on your senses. yU heard the beat (produced by Usef Dinero) and was reminded of waking up from a dream that he didn't quite understand, feeling all shook up."
"Phil The Thrill releases his long awaited album, Barely Awake. Barely Awake features production from a lot of talented up and coming producers. Barely Awake covers multiple topics such as love, suicide, reflection on life and many more."
Not going to lie was skimming through my email and found this. The email about the project was sent to me about it and I missed it. Give me my late pass and give this project a listen.
I just realized 50 cent was really rapping in front of the Marcy stop on the J train. While
you're at it. LIKE 50 cent's current STREET KING campaign to provide a meal to children
in need. https://www.facebook.com/StreetKing
Back then I just thought Mya had a little a$$ head. Now I still feel the same but realized
she is a nice body. This joint also features Silk The Shocker I didn't want to mention
it in the title because most likely you would not have watched this video.
Master P had a ridiculous amount of money, rapped and wanted to play pro basketball.
I heard he was good but never quite made the cut. In this video he combined being
a flashy guy and basketball into one big video. My man had a tank in a basketball arena.
"Kendrick Lamar sat down with Curry of DealWithNoDeal to talk about who he is, his parents' feelings on his success, the difference between his debut album and Section.80, wanting to work with Erykah Badu, the transition from underground to the mainstream, the status on his joint project with J. Cole, what Black Hippy/TDE are up to and more. Also enjoy concert footage from his show at Gramercy Theater during CMJ week."
Queens emcee Otis Clapp performs his joint "You Get Yours I'll Get Mine" on the
The F*cking Internet Show.
"Otis CLaPP! Let's not lie to ourselves. You see a white guy, you hear it's hip-hop and you assume Eminem. No joke Otis has got skills and passion for this. He came in along with his brother Ralphie to show all haters what he's about. You Get Yours, I'll Get Mine."
This morning I woke up reciting Big L lines. L was an emcee way before his time
that died before reaching his prime. He often doesn't get the recognition that he deserves,
when he was just murdering sh*t left and right.
Before his death there were rumors that he would go over to Rocafella records with
good friend Jay-Z. Could you imagine that? A team of Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Big L, Young Chris,
and Jay-Z. It would have been in earlier version of Slaughterhouse.
What we have here is L's freestyle "Watch For Hook" for Dj Kay Slay. The significance of this
was that this was his last recorded freestyle before his death.
“Embracing Rejection” is the new LP from Signif, the Milwaukee bred NYC resident follows up her springtime EP, “Significant Wizdom” with producer Gee Wiz. Embracing Rejection is a testament to Signif’s continued trails and tribulations as she continues to pave her own way as an emerging emcee. Walk with Signif as she repeatedly dodges the norms of the typical rapper. Production credits include Tay Lee, Gee Wiz, Dj Puerto Roc, Haz Solo, and more. Features from J. Nolan, Keno, and Izreal."
Who knew Milwaukee had such talent. Signif easily is one of the best unsigned female rappers
"Named after the three Greek goddesses who controlled the flow of time, Inhale Pt. 4: Horaifeatures 16 fresh records from the up-and-coming emcee, divided into movements representing the seasons of the year. Included on the tracklist is previously-featured, reader-approved leak “Yer.”
The Boy Illinois has been a busy body in the last couple of months leading up to his new mixtape release. Some notables in the past couple weeks are being featured on MTV Rapfix Live (Get In The Game Segment) to performing with Maino."
"Our homie from the DMV came through DealWithNoDeal Radio a couple weeks back. Before giving us insight on his new projects, he felt it was necessary to go off for a few minutes. He ji' blacked, yung. Like for real Joe. Look for the interview to drop soon."

is sent to me even social networking websites because you never know what you'll
The footage serves a as recap to Wale performing songs like "Bait" and a couple others
from his sophmore LP "Ambition" while at the Homecoming Concert after party last weekend
I guess. Not really into these homecoming things.

The Highline Ballroom was a zoo last night with Joe Buddens performing that night. I was in attendance that night and still in this am smell like a combination of weed and cigarettes. This
show was for long-time Joe Budden fans since he was running through his resume of mixtapes
ThisisRnB TV Presents: Rhythm & Blues with CJ Hilton. The singer/songwriter shares the history, making of and meaning behind his brand new single “Cold Summer.” Which is the title track from his debut album, due out this December. CJ discusses the production, lyrics, says the song is dedicated to his ex-girlfriend and sends a message out to her.
What a turn of events I was just reading about her in the XXL Magazine and I receive
a blast in my email about the video. Guyana is something to look out for with a dope
flow. I see a strong influence in Foxy Brown from her. More posts from her in due time.
"AllHIpHop.com got a chance to sit down with rapper A$AP Rocky at the Polo Grounds Music offices in New York City. Rocky speaks on his video directing skills, the new one he shot recently for Fool's Gold artist Danny Brown, and how he got Dave Chappelle to come out of hiding."
Next week Trey Songz drops this project and it will be added to my R&B playlist along with that Cocoa Sarai "The Real Her" remix and that Bridget Kelly. He will also be liberating his other mixtape "Let Me Hold That Beat" for his rapping ego. Miss me with that project.
Openmic continues his Quality Control series to captivate new audiences. It shows its an effective
tactic, since I have bumping this since I received this in my email. Here is some background
on the Quality Control series words by Openmic.
"The Quality Control Series was Openmic's idea to advance his brand while also capturing new audiences with his unique southern lyricism and charisma. It will continue throughout the end of 2011 on a weekly basis. It is not a mixtape but an online series that we think would make a fitting addition to your current content."

Gangsta Gibbs give us a sample of some of the material on "Cold Day In Hell" mixtape. This
project will be one of projects I listen to on October 31st rather than all the clutter that will be
dropping. Somewhere on planet earth one hundred rappers are planning to drop a wack ass mixtape on the Halloween.
Common shows us that he hasn't lost a step with this new joint "Blue Sky". The "Blue Sky"
instrumental produced by No ID (Who has been having a great year) sampled the classic
rock group The Beatles. Enough of me ranting about how dope this is. Check out the BTS.
"Brooklyn rhymesayer Gees Extortion has hooked up with The DJBooth to bring listeners his latest street release, Organized Rhymes - The Original Mixtape. The project features 16 original cuts (and two bonus tracks) from the up-and-coming emcee, including previously-featured, reader-approved leaks “New Song,” “Artillery,” “Chasin’,” “Top Spot” and “Life Is So Crazy.” Joining Gees on the guest tip throughout Organized Rhymes are Nitty Scott, MC, Vin Keatin and Anna. Beats come courtesy of S’pply & Demand, Hala-X, Jahlil Beats, !llmind, Clipsmoke, Sho-Down and Focus."
The Note [Gensu Dean Remix] is a serious, slightly ominous toned track starts with singing in what almost sounds like a call to prayer over a sitar. Then Dean cuts up some drums, adds some bass stabs, and layers vocal chanting throughout the beat to create a thought provoking, heavy new edition of Apollo's original.
Shabazz had a chance to catch up with Action Bronson while he was smoking a joint.
In this interview Bronson talks the use of fancy food references in hip hop. The missing
New York City identity. Even describes his rap style.
Freeway use to be one of my favorite rappers. His first album "Philadelphia Freeway" was
a good album. Besides that Free is back with a new mixtape called "Intermission" that is hosted
by Dj Superstar Jay and Dj Love Dinero. That was a warning for the Djs talking on the track.
Sh!t is really annoying but the tracks are notable. I will be awaiting a dj-less version.
Here are dope cuts from the tape.
"This is probably one of THE best videos we’ve produced over the past six months! Mecca’s Hip Hop Lineage Tree suggests that all rap styles can be traced back to the following 6 MC’s: L.L.Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, K.R.S One, Slick Rick and Kool G Rap."
"From Papatoetoe to New York City, David Dallas pays homage to the All Blacks winning the Rugby World Cup by releasing his latest video for "Start Lookin Round" off the deluxe edition of The Rose Tint out Nov 8th in the U.S. & Nov 14th in New Zealand/Australia."
Philly Emcee Has-Lo enlists legendary producer Kev Brown for his latest reenvisioning, "Never Was Yours." The track appears on Has-Lo's upcoming project "Conversation B" which hits stores November 15th.
Pusha T bring us a new track after stirring up the net with his "Don't F!ck With Me" freestyle
thought to have been a diss track to Drake. All the tension was cleared in a recent radio
interview. Pusha even goes far enough to say that he likes Drake's music.
