Audio: Element Rhymes - Battle Royale (Kendrick Lamar Response)
There has been a lot of controversy over the recent Kendrick Lamar situation. Enough to Stir up Element Rhymes into making possibly the ultimate response. Abstrakt Soundz flipped the same beat that Kendrick used and created another beat while Element dropped some serious lyrics. Even taking jabs at Cassidy, Lupe and more.

Seattle rapper Nissim, whom you may have known as D. Black before he converted to Orthodox Judaism and changed his name, is preparing for the release of his upcoming self-titled album with the premiere of his video for "Live For Now." The track, featuring dream pop duo Bonhom, emcompasses ethereal vocal pulses against tick tocky strings while Nissim raps about showing that you have the power to live a better life. As D. Black, the rapper gained recognition rapping about street life but recently made the decision to abandon that way of life to follow a life of faith.
I'm an 80's baby so I got spoiled. I had all the greats on the radio at the same time. Things are different now and the new generation doesn't understand where a cat like me comes from. The industry has become more of a party than a voice. So intentional or not I want to thank you for using your visibility to touch on something real. The art of bars doesn't exist as it used to and the lack of that competition has allowed emcees to settle for mediocre product. I understand the importance of appeal and have learned to implement that in my music. But I am an emcee first and an artist second. Whether or not you ever read this isn't important to me. You inspired me to write this track and for that I am grateful and love the fire you lit under other emcees asses too. Thank you!

NY based Duo GreenLine (K-Reid, Brooklyn and Yung, Bronx) drop their 2nd official video off of their mixtape L.I.F.E (Loyalty Is Forever). The record is titled "Cry", and with the help of KQuick on a very powerful hook the duo expresses the many personal life battles they have been through individually as well as together. This is a very heartfelt record that ANY and EVERYONE can relate to.
