On your motherfxcking radar for March… DJ Fabsabs our friend with his hear to the streets in Hong Kong, and Asia as a whole shares his first column with us of bands to watch! "Here are some of the artists I’ve been keeping an eye on to have an awesome year ahead. Names like TripleSix, Zack Calixtus, Streets of Rage, N.Y.P.D., Metic, Hope the Flowers, MAEL, Pora, Vanish, Cold Years, and Beat Friday!"
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.
Contributions from Hong Kong include a remix of YoungQueenz, Last Freedom by posse member, GrymeMan, and the debut of electric outfit, Retox'D, new track, 'Beast Mode'! Ladies representin' lovely on this week's chart with contributions by Vel the Wonder, Koffee, and Rapsody. Takin' the Number 1 spot is a standout track from a standout project, 'Honest Living\Crooked Killing' by Zilla Rocha and Chong Wizard.
