    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…

    Mashich Haunted for Music Monday

    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…

    2014 Forest Hills Drive from J. Cole Released 5 Years Ago

    J. Cole is one of my favorite rappers from this generation. A couple months ago, my Mixtape Friday was my personal J. Cole compilation. Recently, J. Cole stated that he’s no longer doing features after he appeared on the new Gang Starr’s Family and Loyalty. J. Cole has put out five albums, a few mixtapes, three compilations and been featured on numerous tracks. 5 years ago, J. Cole released his classic third album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive. 2014 Forest Hills Drive was the follow-up to his classic Born Sinner project. The album went triple platinum and it had no features on the entire album. 2014 Forest Hills Drive won album…

    Listen and Stream Dave East Survival Album

    I’ve been a Dave East fan ever since the Kairi Chanel mixtape. On November 8th, Dave East released his much anticipated Survival album. Dave East has gained added exposure for his dramatic portrayal of Method Man in Wu-Tang: An American Saga, the 10-episode HULU mini-series that pre­miered in September. A fic­tion­alized drama, An American Saga was created by Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA and Alex Tse (Watchmen, Superfly 2018). Executive producers include Brian Grazer and Method Man. It is noted that W-TC’s Method Man and Ghostface Killah have enjoyed long stints as Def Jam solo artists. View trailers for An American Saga HERE. For my Music Monday, check out the Survival…

    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…

    Death Row is known for putting out classic albums. The Chronic, Doggystyle, All Eyez on Me and Makaveli are all-time classic records. Death Row Records is also known for their movie soundtracks also. Above the Rim is looked at as one of, if not the best soundtrack ever. Snoop Dogg created a little film for his track, Murder Was the Case. Death Row put out an official soundtrack and it was released 25 years ago today. Unfortunately, the Murder Was the Case Soundtrack isn’t available on any streaming services. Either way, we have to show love to another classic Death Row Records release. The soundtrack featured Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre,…

    Gang Starr Family and Loyalty With J. Cole

    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…
