I’m not a huge fan of Eminem. In fact he lost me with his Marshall Mathers project already. Since his third LP I didn’t even listen to his albums anymore. On the other side I think he did one of the greatest rap verses of all time on Jay-Zs Renegades.
EMINEM comes back to proof he’s a RAP GOD, and even though I am still not 100% convinced about the whole concept of this song, his rap skills are amazing. Just showing off he’s still there and can do a lot more than your favorite MC - this sounds like an unofficial answer to Kendrick Lamar’s claim for the throne.
The WORLD’S FAIR collective is flowing under the radar as part of what they call “New New York”. After a number of single projects, they now published their first crew-mixtape. Check out BLACKLISTED as a preview listen and download album here via Fool’s Gold: http://www.foolsgoldrecs.com/2013/09/03/worlds-fair-bastards-of-the-party-free-lp-download/#.Ui3AUWRdd-M
I think KENDRICK LAMAR and TECH N9NE should do an album together. Their rap styles come aloong side by side so naturally. Proven (again) in this quiet storm killer FRAGILE of the forthcoming TECH N9NE album with music played by MAYDAY and KENDALL MORGAN singing the hook.
After praising Brooklyn Zombies yesterday, here’s another minimal joint from the Beast Coast. A$AP FERG only needs one drum sound, a synthie humming choir and a few more simple synthie voices for breaks and bridges to create his banger A HUNDRED MILLION ROSES.
The FLATBUSH ZOMBIES, soon to be better known than Joey Bada$$, published a new track PALM TREES with a beat stickin to the less is more rule. In times of overloaded beats all over mainstream hip hop, this is a welcome change.
I be that smooth cat, you never see rollin with clowns
Who’s the Greatest Of All Time? Should have been Big L! Leaving way too young to really leave a huge mark in the rap world, you might at least argue him being Harlem’s G.O.A.T. (Sorry Cam…). So it’s a natural pick for up and coming Spanish Harlem rapper BODEGA BAMZ to feature L Corleone’s voice on his banger GLORIOUS. Fits perfectly and makes them both L and Bamz shine.
