NEW MUSIC: Beanie Gang “Minimum Wage” ft. DayQuan, JT La Brea, G Rex, Marcus B
By J.Scott |

This is a decent amateur effort from Beanie Gang. DayQuan, JT La Brea, G Rex, and Marcus B all get together over this simplistic production.

NEW MUSIC: Valdrin Lamont ft. DiBiase, Mac Eternal & Shawn Mays “Hate”
By LG |

Hate, Myself CA 2nd save PA (01-03-14-02-43-39)

Can’t be mad at this one. The sound is hot, and the chemistry between Valdrin Lamont and all his features is apparent. You can definitely pop bottles to this ne in the club.

NEW MUSIC: Ishmael Raps “Intro To Fame”
By LG |

intro to fame (01-03-14-11-24-41)

I’m really liking the feel to this one.  It’s mellow, and almost has too much dead space, but I like that about the track. It gives off it’s own atmosphere. Ishmael Raps does a great job at keeping this interesting with a solid verse.

NEW MUSIC: John Jenova ft. Ant-Live “Revenge Of Shinobi”
By LG |

Shinobi (01-03-14-10-43-17)

Despite the cool cover, this song is a bit of a bust. The production is great, but John Jenova needs a little bit of fine tuning before he can handle it. He needs to work on his delivery a bit. Alas, you can still rock with the song because of its decent production.

NEW MUSIC: Justincredible “Children of the Ghetto”

Justincredible spits a though-provoking take on the hood and it’s dangers. The sound is very early-90′s, late 80′s, so it might have a hard time finding ears wanting to listen. It’s still VERY good though.

NEW MUSIC: An0maly “Man Next Door”
By LG |

An0maly continues his raps about drugs. He is way more focused these days it seems. His craft is getting better, his wordplay a tad wittier than it was this time last year. Here, he spins a tale about the man in the neighborhood that we all know as “the dopeman”.

NEW MUSIC: Chox-Mak ft. DJ YRS Jerzy & N-Tone “Far Away”
By LG |

Chox-Mak & DJ YRS Jerzy are a very capable duo. Withe he added dimension of an R&B singer added, it shows a side of their music we don’t get often. The song is good, but seems like it’s missing an element that would make it great.

NEW MUSIC: Ant Bradford “Lost My Mind”
By J.Scott |

Aren’t we all glad that there are artists like Ant Bradford who were clearly inspired by Mr. Mathers? Hip Hop needs this flip side of the coin.

  • What’s Your Name?

    Who are you? Really. Ask yourself that. The first step to making a presence is knowing who you are. The one thing that should always be consistent throughout your brand, (yes, you are a brand), is your name. Occasional name changes aside, your name always be the same. But when upcoming rapper, let’s call him “Kid Magic”, releases new music and his YouTube account calls him “K.I.D. Magic”, song title calls him “KidMagic”, Twitter calls him “Kiidd Magic”, and so on and so forth, how are his fans supposed to connect to his brand?
