If you have something we need to hear hit us up : firstname.lastname@example.org
Check out 8 In The Clip EP11.
Takin' the number one spot is an infectious groove by Pro Era crew member, CJ Fly. 'Medicine' gonna be a groove for the summa, as we all look forward to season change. It's an ode to the good good, and sees CJ equally contemplate his come up and where his ambitions lie. His steady, rapid flow sees him rip a second verse meditating on the various reasons people use or abuse. It's got you ridin' in the back seat of a hot box until the track literally falls of a cliff. REWIND!
'Empire' sees the 4th member of Cypress Hill, Eric Bobo flex with producer Stu Bangas on the title track of their new LP, with Mr. Lif droppin' knowledge and DJ Rhettmatic on the cuts. Make sure you peeps the album too, it's worth it's weight.
While we reel from the loss of DMX, we get a crazy Ruff Ryders anthem by Swizzy for 'The Godfather of Harlem' EPIX series. The rugged boom of 'Been To War' suits both like some combat boots, but it sees the most inspired French Montana verse in years to keep step with such elite company!
'CDAT' this beat! Producer DviousMindz comes with that Boom Boom Bap. It's so tight even the official cut got a rewind. MC Rob Markman flosses all over it and brings a bag o' substantial humble brag. It's a shout out to Cheri Dennis, and we need to ask Buckwild about his involvement when we get the chance!
Moneybagg Yo is hot property right now and if he got a bunch of tracks like, 'Certified Neptunes', with Pharrell, I be 'bout it, 'bout it! Turn this up in the club, and let me see some of the finest from Memphis juke to this!
Yo the abstract legend Kool Keith's Instagram is an account you should follow. Doc Oct got a bunch of exclusive music up there that you can't find anywhere. 'Extravagance' got an ill digital bounce, you need to move something to while Keith spits the Kool. Jitterbug!
How does a track with B Real, Scott Storch and Freeway sound? Well Hip Hop heads got blessed on 420 with 'Triple OG'. B, and Free fit right in on the modern trap sound with this. It's hella fresh. B Real and Scott Storch dropped a double whammy on Weed Day 2021 so make sure you find the other one too with DJ Paul! Also these cats need some hella lifted name to their new group, share some ideas in the comments.
Also check for Wiki and producer NAH's new cut, 'Hip Hop'. The beat got a dissonant funk that might give you the effect of car sick, while Wiki checks the mic. It's a dope step forward into Hip Hop expanding it's envelope.
If you fiend like I do and can't get enough, we packin' Extra Clips for ya'll from the likes of Big K.R.I.T., Bobby Digital, Raa D, Cordae, YOD X Edan, and Stove God Cooks! And you thought we was lyin' about the competition for these 8 slots.
Behave out there, peeps. PEACE.
