Brockton, Massachusetts rapper Mega Trife presents the fresh Rose Glen-directed music video for “The Backspin”, the new single from 2095, his brand new album produced entirely by his long-term partner Nonsense and featuring cuts from Statik Selektah and Rain!! Check it out here:
Trife has collaborated with M.O.P., Termanology, Nature, Von Pea, Blu and more. Trife and Nonsense’s last release was 2012′s Full Circle (click here to listen to “Anything You Heard About” featuring Termanology). Following Trife’s collaborative effort with Nonsense will be a solo album featuring production from Statik Selektah, Ski, and Khrysis. Trife says “The Backspin” was chosen as the lead single “because it encapsulates the entire essence of what 2095 is; hard rhymes over a classic breakbeat. Just because a beat may have an old school sound to it, doesn’t mean the lyrical content is or has to be old school as well””.
“2095″ is out now & available here:

Check it out: “Beats And Rhymes Syndrome/Change It Up”is the first video off Granddad Woolly’s new project “The Vanilla Tape” doing what he does best, dropping BARS! But, also deep within his words is a heavy amount of wisdom and wordplay that really explains what this song truly represents.
Also be sure to grab a copy of the full project, available for free download here:
“The Vanilla Tape is not an album nor is it a mixtape. It is a 30 minute original musical presentation piece. This project serves as a side project not related to Granddad Woolly’s storyline. It is rather a personal look at Granddad Woolly both directly and indirectly through song. The instrumentals are completely handled by UK producer Vanilla who brings quality amounts of soul, emotion, beauty and intensity through his sound. Granddad Woolly handles the lyrics and paints an amazing picture on the canvas provided by Vanilla. A must listen for any fan of not only hip hop but beautiful music in general”.

Peep the new music video from Kingz & Pharaohz… It’s a fresh re-work of their debut single Gangsta!! Check it out here:
“Dj Mixx [@DjMixx305] and Terry B [@TerryBBk] are Kingz & Pharaohz [@KingzNPharaohz]. Their acclaimed first single, “Gangsta” [Prod. @GorillaTek], sets forth street-storytelling with a powerful message. On a similar wave, Miami-based clothing company, 8&9 [@8and9] has remained on the cutting-edge of boutique street wear while maintaining conscious undertones. Learning of one another, the two have collaborated to present: “Gangsta [Re]Defined” [Film. @RobDade], a lifestyles piece re-visiting the Kingz & Pharaohz single with 8&9 fashions complimenting the same theme…naturally, in a way that challenges the norm”.

So, recently we had one of our friends and non-do hiphop affiliate to take a listen to the new Sage Francis album “Copper Gone” and share their thoughts… This is what they had to say:
“With a ‘DIY or Die’ approach the HipHop veteran delivers a compelling, captivating classic for 2014. The album deals with the artist’s signature outlook on social and contemporary issues in and out of the HipHop scene, validating his ‘silverback gorilla status’ through cunning multi-tiered wordplay and melancholic undertones. The proclamation is that Sage is here to stay, and even though he professes ‘both sides of my bed are the wrong ones and I am always waking up’ he continues to arouse the minds of his fans and followers”.
and what an amazing album it is!
Sage also recently dropped this assiduous official music video for the track “Grace” from the album; it really does the track justice!!

Portland hip-hop duo Jellyfish Brigade have teamed up with Minneapolis collective Polkadot Mayhem to release their debut full-length album “Diving Lessons” out now!
This is the Music video for an acoustic version of their track “Man the Riverboat” from the album featuring members of Fruition, Horsefeathers and Loud Hound!
“Diving Lessons details a two-year period in emcee Lucas Dix’s life that began as his best friend, Gavin Theory, was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Theory and Dix began making music together as Hives Inquiry Squad in high school and moved to Portland from Wisconsin to pursue their artistic endeavors. Around the same time his best friend was diagnosed, Dix met a woman who introduced him to many of the scenic places Oregon is known for: the Cascade Mountain Range, Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge, and the Pacific Ocean. These places, this new love, and the difficulties in supporting a dying friend set the backdrop, theme, and plot for the new Jellyfish Brigade album.
Producer Jeffrey Acciaioli (aka The Great Mundane) provides the soundtrack for Dix’s self-exploration with melodic, electronic beats that are sometimes as playful as a sunny day on the river. Other times, they are dark as a midnight hike through mountain fog. Dix’s stories describe the supernatural as normal and the ordinary as magical–detailing times of growth, happiness and hardship. Together, the duo created a debut album of hip hop songs with catchy, R&B infused hooks that explore the process of finding yourself while losing the people closest to you”.
It’s a truly incredible album right through that I’m sure a lot of us can sadly relate to all too well. You can feel the pain in in the words but it’s not without hope; finding purpose even despite all life has thrown your way and still push on because what you had is worth it.
Really digging it; go get a copy here:
