DC/Maryland hip-hop artists Cal Rips and Suede Moccasins team up to create something major. Cal Rips is a vet in the scene. Cal is also a member of the Kool Klux Klan, a collective out the DMV area that has consistently maintained relevance in the area and is claims a massive amount of talent. He’s known for consistently smashing verses in features. On the other hand, you’ve got Suede Moccasins, a Frozen 10-awarded producer who has crafted many of the most impressive instrumentals in the past couple of years. You put it together.
The artist formerly known as Brandyn Jaye finally puts together his first project post new moniker. With the name change comes a whole new style to match. Several songs come with a gothic feeling, much akin to his genius dual single Second Circle/Angel. But then it also wavers back into his original, less-dark style.
SO ICEY BOY
The “Nike Boy” music video is a conscious shaking bewildering piece that deserves the upmost merit. E.U and Unkle Luc create something that is characterized by E.U’s persona and mimics the aura of the song.
Madagascar coming soon.
You rarely find such depth and wisdom in music. JahTrig is one with an enlightened sense of poetry when he spits his rhymes. He’s a warrior for knowledge and greater consciousness. But even with that sense of wisdom he maintains an exquisite musicality with genius beat selection, a well-rounded mastery of rap skills, and a unique and synergistic take to tracks.
Gotta make ya’ll aware of a couple of new releases that are coming out, not no obvious stuff though this is a place of discovery. I got a few albums from dudes who have shown and proved in the past at least once, and now they got some ear blessings to grant. I’ma just get right into it.
Dig these groovy sounds from the DMV superstar, and fancy flow extraordinaire, Goldlink. Cuz has been putting in work with a handful of hit singles, a dope video that got some major press, and even a noteworthy verse in that Frozen 10-awarded Mike of Doom joint.
Fat Trel recently signed up with the MMG crew, and had to follow up with this project here. This cover has to be the most hilarious cover I’ve ever seen.
Underground hip-hop vets, Cunninglynguists, present this project featuring a load of other underground legends. These dudes have been in the game for over a decade, and continue to fail to disappoint. If you paid attention you might’ve peeped a single or two. Also, this joint was out for free for a few days, so ya’ll gon have to forgive the late report, but you can still listen to the whole joint playas.
Last but not least, it’s ya boy Rugby, the Kush God, the one and only Smoke DZA. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know what this is. Go ahead and support that, dude throws in 20+ brand new tracks.
Audial epics by ST3 rapper, Kwes da Natty Jedi. Yo boy chills, spits, swags, and flows his way through this 8-track EP. He establishes himself in more than one type of sound, which is commendable in itself. You also get a piece of Kwes the man, in his personal life. It goes deeper than just talking trash on tracks. Features Frozen 10 awardees, CJ the Genesis and Suede Moccasins, among others .
