The Grimey Tape is a street album that comes courtesy of Mad Men Entertainment and Mafia Mixtapes, and features a mess of people rhyming and doing things all over it, including Havoc, AG, Tragedy Khadafi, Mayhem Lauren, Mic Handz, Nutso, Ty Nitty, Blaq Poet, and many more. If all of these people are to your liking, you’re going to want to hear this.
Hard to believe that Slum Village have been around for 20 years, right? I’m sure they are too, and in honor of being around for two decades, the group are releasing a new album on June 25th called Evolution (Ne’Astra). The album will feature a number of guests, including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Rapper Big Pooh, Raheem Devaughn, Blu, and many more.
The group now consists of original member T3, and to his side are Young RJ and Illa J, and the album touches on the changes to a person that happens throughout life, and finding reasons for the things that develop, which leads to ones ever-changing evolution. Production duties on this one were done by T3, Young RJ and FOCUS.
With the recent news that Mobb Deep are no more due to internal struggles that pushed Havoc and Prodigy apart, Havoc has created a song that is more or less his response as to why the end of Mobb Deep came about. Or at least this may be one of a number of responses, it is unsure. Nonetheless, here him give his view with “Separated (Real From The Fake)”.
P.S. I’d like to be able to use the line “muthafuckin’ book” as a sample.
