Double header of misanthropy from Lee and Sniff, as they dash two new surprise tracks in our general direction. As the names suggest, Don’t Talk To Me and Do Not Look At Me are not your happy head-nod style raps, but rather the stripped down, slow flow rap dirges that have become an integral part of the 616 movement. Produced in its entirety by Nobodies Home, you can cop a download here.

The ever-prolific Planet Asia is hitting us with yet another full-length project tomorrow. Following on from January’s Golden Buddha project, Mansa Musa looks set to be reaching the same energy levels he has consistently reached in the two decades he’s been around. Mansa Musa Medallions is the lead single and sees the mic veteran connecting with two of the more established stars from the current crop of MCs, Hus Kingpin and SmooVth. You can stream the track below and you can cop the album here tomorrow. Read the rest of this entry »

Blueprint is currently celebrating the release of his latest album, Two-Headed Monster, his first return to the studio since his Aesop Rock produced Vigilante Genesis EP, back in 2016. The album has already given us a few videos and now we are treated to the next offering, as Printmatic releases a new video for Don’t Look Back.
Centred around the curse of getting trapped in the past and the importance of moving forwards with your art and life in general, the video sees Blueprint understandably frustrated at the all too familiar procrastination he experiences while waiting for a trim. Two-Headed Monster is out now on Weightless Recordings and you can stream it below. Read the rest of this entry »

Huge posse cut from the essential World War 3 LP by Vard and Wish. On Riot they enlist Glock, Tona, Dash Villz, Ellis, R.E. and Jordan Nathaniel to blitzkrieg another strong beat from Baileys Brown. The album is available to buy now on Official Recordings.

Blockhead reunites with billy woods and ELUCID, as he brings new flavour to Armand Hammer’s Dry Ice. The track was originally included on last year’s Rome album, which is available now from Backwoodz Studioz.

A little loosie from Henry Canyons and gang, following on from the triumphant arrival of his recent Cool Side of the Pillow LP. Once again the track is produced by Matt “Bones” Bowen and once again it features the vocal stylings of Zoe Rose Palladino. Cool Side of the Pillow is out now on Backwoodz Studioz.

Another gem from AmirSaysNothing and the treasure trove that is his Love Always, Mr. Right EP. Fast cars and fast flows are the recipe as Amir chases that dollar, over a tight bass-heavy beat from Charlie Scovill. The EP is available now via Nothing But Entertainment.

The mighty Aesop Rock surprised us with a new song last week, as well as a new video to accompany it.
The track was released along with this statement from the man himself: “Occasionally song structure eludes me and it feels good. No problem-solving or pesky hit chorus, just rambling. Klutz is such a moment. I had started a couple things to this beat before sacrificing it to the gods of not-shutting-up, but this seemed a fitting fate. I hope you enjoy it. My longtime video collaborator, Rob Shaw, helped visualize my long-windedness, and I’m excited to have Steve Espo Powers gracing the artwork for the release.”
Rhymesayers have also announced a limited run of 7″ vinyl, as well as a t-shirt bundle offer. More information on all of that is available via Fifth Element.
