Check out this simply stunning track from Besatree called “Can’t Think”!!
“Can’t Think” is a song about growing older and the wear and tear we as humans take in doing so… More specifically it’s about Besatree slowly losing his hearing… and his mind as a result. Probably the single most scary thought for any passionate musician or music lover. Really loved the overall result and message of this track and I’ve had it on prominent rotation since I first heard it.

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!!

“Columbus, Ohio-bred jazz-hop producer, teacher, DJ, emcee, and Polar Entertainment head J. Rawls presents “Bills”, from his forthcoming album The Legacy. Featuring a guest verse from Brooklyn rap veteran Masta Ace and produced by Bombeardo, “Bills” is the newest leak from The Legacy, set to feature Illa J, Oddisee, Wordsworth, Nottz Raw, Blueprint, JG the Juggernaut, P Blackk, Jean P, Driskill, Ms Sara D, Rashad, John Robinson, Ceezar, Lea Anderson and Keisha Soleil as well as production from Kev Brown, RASHAD, The Mighty DR, Rob Riley, Lakim and DJ O Sharp. “Bills” comes hot on the heels of the leak of “The Rest Of My Life” featuring Illa J (listen on KevinNottingham.com). The Legacy will be the final solo album from Rawls, the producer behind tracks for rap luminaries from Mos Def & Talib Kweli to the Beastie Boys, and to commemorate his transition he produces only one track on the album. “I had the opportunity to work with Ace years ago and when the chance came to work with him again I jumped at it,” says Rawls. “Ace is one of the dopest lyricists I know. We both have the task of running labels and making sure the bills get paid. The song came together like clockwork.” The Legacy drops June 10. Click here to watch the official trailer for The Legacy.

“Dj Mixx (@DjMixx305) and Terry B (@TerryBBK) are Kingz & Pharaohz (@KingzNPharaohz). Their first single, “Gangsta,” presented street narrative with a message. Now comes the video to their follow-up, “Dreams” [Film: Rob Dade | Graphics: PesuArt.Com]. This song is about self-empowerment. Pursuing your potential. The visual is a challenge to all who live alienated from their purpose, toiling routinely only to become trapped by monotony. For those who are robbed of their spirit: Stop the fuckrey. Pursue your greatness. The Kingz & Pharaohz EP coming soon. #KingzAndPharaohz.Com “
