    Listen and Stream O.T.R Legends by JP & Murda

    If you have followed me throughout the years, you will know how much I love music. It’s even more special when people close to your put it out. This past Friday, two childhood friends did just that. JP & Murda just released their new project OTR Legends. The OTR stands of Out the Road, which is where we all grew up. They have been doing their thing for years now. JP has a son named MKP who’s been featured on here before. JP & Murda came back hard with the Return of the Legends track. The video highlighted not only Out the Road, but the city of Gainesville. Great track…

    Special Affair from Mashich Featuring Dejah B.

    It’s been a minute, but it’s time for the return of Music Monday. We only bring this back for special occasions and this is one of them. It’s been over 6 years since we were introduced to D.C. Da Beast and the Thurobredz Clique. During that time, we’ve had countless singles and a dope mixtape in the process. They continue to grow and represent Philly to the fullest by introducing a clothing line. They have also brought new artists into the fold and one of them being Mashich. Last year, we had the chance to check out his track, Haunted. Haunted was a dope track and now he’s back with…

    First off, Happy New Year and decade to everyone out there. Hoping this new decade and year will be the start of a new, prosperous beginning. If things have been going great, hoping they’ll continue moving in that direction. We’re starting the year off with a Music Monday on the R&B tip. Mashich is his name and he’s someone that DCDaBeast introduced me to. The track is called Haunted and A.M.O. Productions is responsible for the beat while J. Mogul mixed it. The first time hearing it was on Mashich’s Instagram page and thought it was dope. After first listening to Haunted, it made me think about all the music…

    One of the Best Yet from Gang Starr Album Released

    Gang Starr is one of my favorite duos ever when it comes to hip hop. Hard to Earn is a certified classic that turned 25 earlier this year. DJ Premier is one of the greatest producers in my humble opinion. Guru is one of the coldest to ever touch the mic. Unfortunately, Guru lost his battle with cancer nine years ago. When DJ Premier dropped the Family and Loyalty track with J. Cole that brought back so many memories. Family and Loyalty was featured as a Music Monday track a little over a month ago. Guru had that commanding voice and his delivery is legendary. DJ Premier stated that there’s…

    T.I. Paperwork Released 5 Years Ago Today

    T.I. has had a lengthy and legendary career spanning almost 20 years now. T.I. have released a few classics along the way and even called himself “The King of the South”. 5 years ago today, T.I. released his ninth album, Paperwork. Jeezy, Rick Ross, Chris Brown, Pharrell Williams, Trae the Truth, The Dream and the late, great Nipsey Hussle appear on the album. While Paperwork isn’t on par with albums like Trap Muzik or Urban Legend, but it’s a good project. My favorite track off the album was probably G Shit featuring Jeezy. You can peep the video for G-Shit below. The three official singles released for this album featured…

    First things first, rest in peace to the late, great Guru. Guru passed away in April 2010 from a long bout with cancer. Before passing, Guru released several solo projects and later formed Gang Starr with DJ Premier. Gang Starr is one of my favorite duos ever and when Guru passed, we all thought that was the end of Gang Starr. Moment of Truth is one of those albums that need to be in everyone’s collection. Royalty from Moment of Truth was featured as my Throwback Thursday track at the beginning of the year. Last week, Gang Starr premiered their first track in about 16 years. Let’s just say, it…

    This week, we’re having not one, but two featured for Music Monday. The first one was the new Jeezy album, TM 104: The Legend of the Snowman. For this one, we have the new album from Rapsody entitled Eve. While many people have been up on Rapsody for a minute, unfortunately that’s not the case for me.

Port of Miami 2 makes this his unprecedented 10th studio album and 13 years since his Port of Miami debut. After listening a couple of times, Ross came through once again.
