Portland hip-hop continues to be in shape and for proof, check out this new one from EsoXoSupreme. It’s all about “Power” and things get more powerful in this collaboration with Free5ive. This one was directed by Thomas Dierikx
Mello Music Group have another gem here with a new album by Stik Figa, who worked with producer Apollo Brown and now you can hear a hint of it with “Holding Back Tears”. The video was directed by Morgan Cooper. Stik Figa’s album Central Standard Time
can be ordered below via Amazon.com.
If you’re wanting to know what is hot in the ATL for hip-hop, you may want to try Lil Baby for side, as he has a track called “For You” which happens to be, well, for you. The song is from his latest street album Perfect Timing
, which you can check out below via Soundcloud.
This one will be up for a limited time but it comes from Seattle, courtesy of Wizdom and it takes J.I.D.’s “Never” and turns it into something new, forever. It’s called “40 Bar Dash”, which you can download for free while it’s up so get to it ASAP.
The ever-impressive Eternia went back to the 1990’s to revive an incredible classic to remind people how nice hip-hop used to be. It’s an update/upgrade to “Broken Language” and it makes me wish all of hip-hop in 2017 was this as intense as this song.
There was a time when the Jungle Brothers spoke about being straight out the jungle. 27 years later, New York City may be cleaner and arguably nicer but Endemic Emerald and Skanks The Rap Martyr speak on the pride of the boroughs with “Straight Out Da NYC”. where they were able to team up with Shatike and Rim. The song is a hint of the forthcoming album due out on May 30th called Rapsploitation (No Cure/IDC).
I’m not certain if he’s ravishing but Ricky Rude is here to tell you about how modern times and what it means to survive, even if it means going towards another direction. This one was nicely directed by Jared Biunno while Rude co-produced this with Brainwave and Jordan Graves.
Do not call this a comeback, for Adam Reverie has been here for years but he has a new track for you and he wants to share it with you. This one was produced by Clyde Strokes and it’s about having a “Passion” for it that can’t be denied. Now listen to this and don’t deny its power.
In this case, HeatWave should not be confused with legendary British soul band Heatwave of “Boogie Nights”, “The Groove Line”, and “Always And Forever” fame but rather someone from, Vancouver, BC via Atlanta. He is going to releasing album called The Masses Volume 3
and this one is here to keep you satisfied for the time being. It’s called “Young Motsami”. The album will be out in June.
It has been awhile since we last heard some new music from Seattle’s Wizdom but he has returned in 2017 with something quite superfresh called “Therapy”, which came out today. He worked with producer Reminiss to put this together, not sure if there will be a bigger project or if this will simply be the start of a string of more material but nonetheless, noce to hear from the Wiz again.
