The number 1 spot you ask? Al Skratch is back. Yes THAT Al Skratch, with a crazy gem produced by Large Professor! 'Be Original' sees the decorated vet kickin' swag lines with the utmost confidence like he never left. Clear reference to the unwritten rule of Hip Hop, come original, Al shows just how originoo he be with this flex. Bounce for days, and damn if that Black Moon sample ain't the perfect tie in, Originoo Gun Clap, Be Original, Yadadamean'?! Oh Large Pro, this beat, this beat. This beat make you act a fool when it on G!
The undisputed #1 is damn Mortal Kombat perfection from DJ Muggs and Rome Streetz. Check the project, 'Death And The Magician'. Give this project steady bump, and if you doubt why I be all over it, check the lead single, 'Prayers Over Packages'. Rome Streetz comes hungry out the gate like he been starved in isolation. Shxt bangs from front to back, and there isn't much more either could pack into the track! Dank, dank, dank.
The cream of the crop this go around was, without a doubt, the standout project from The Winners camp capo, Hus Kingpin, and the project, Portishus. The LP is surprisingly deep, clockin' at near 20 tracks of dopeness. It's cinematic noir rap through and through, and while it does reference Portishead as the title, it uses the trip hop band more so as a spearpoint of influence rather than an overtly repetitive one.
