NY’s O The Great swings a heavy lyrical sword throughout this project, which bristles with a true passion for the art and culture of Hip-Hop.
Mixing contemplative rhymes and observational jewels with raw bravado, the skilled emcee (who also produced the majority of this release) holds the listener’s attention with ease here via his sharp delivery and down-to-earth attitude.
The album also features appearances from Supreme Cerebral, BanishHabitual, Supreme Magnetic and more.
A short-but-satisfying blend of moody East Coast boom-bap and soulful downtempo mellowness from the NY producer.
New Jersey emcee P.Genz delivers sharp, punchy rhymes over Freshley Made’s smooth, melodic loops on this engaging five-track EP.
Black Moon – “Black Moon Rise” (@DuckDownMusic / 2019)
Nocturnal vibes from the Brooklyn trio’s forthcoming album “Rise Of Da Moon”.
Gang Starr ft. J. Cole – “Family And Loyalty” (@GangStarr / 2019)
This lead single from the recently announced (yet unexpected) new Gang Starr album effortlessly sets the tone for the remainder of the project. Vintage Guru rhymes, sublime Preemo production, and a well-executed guest spot. RIP Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal. Gang Starr Forever!
Shabaam Sahdeeq & J57 – “Steady Pace” (@ShabaamSahdeeq / 2019)
The Brooklyn rhyme vet delivers typically tight verses over polished, drum-heavy production from J57 off the duo’s as-yet-untitled album project.
Skyzoo & Pete Rock – “Truck Jewels” (@MelloMusicGroup / 2019)
Another true-school gem from the Brooklyn / Mount Vernon duo before the pair drop their highly-anticipated “Retropolitan” album tomorrow.
