Latest Track Gives Fans One Last Peek Before September 6 Release Of Rooftop Shake

The Song:

Before Metermaids' sophomore LP, Rooftop Shake, is released this coming Tuesday, September 6th, the Brooklyn-based duo of rappers Sentence and Swell are excited to release a brand new track as a way to show their appreciation for fans that have been patiently awaiting the new album. The track is an extended redux version of "Bad Things." While the original version of "Bad Things" shows up on Rooftop Shake, including the flawless Sage Francis guest verse, this redux version also includes a special, end-of-track verse from B. Dolan

Sage Francis opens the track with his signature gravely voice and rough neck rhymes. "How do I love Thee?" spits Francis. "Subtract the possibilities, countdown to Armageddon, god forbid if you ain't feeling me." Sentence and Swell attack the track with equal vigor ("This bird's on its last wings/ Wanna back out but I can't, 'cause I've seen bad things."), while producer and frequent collaborator M.Stine, who splits production duties on the album with 9th Wonder, lays a beating, guitar- and soul chop-driven track for the four emcees. As with the entirety of Rooftop Shake, DJ Rob Swift of The X-Ecutioners lends his cuts throughout.

Press Release: Blu Presents... "Open"


Press Release: Blu Presents... "Open"

Courtesy Matt @ Nature Sounds.

While the buzz around Blu has continued to grow, one aspect of the L.A. rapper's artistry has been overlooked: he's also becoming one of hip-hop's best up-and-coming producers.  Since his early work with producers Exile, Ta'Raach, and Mainframe, Blu has turned to creating his own soundscapes, crafting the entire Her Favorite Colo(u)r project, as well as a handful of standout's on the recently released Jesus.  Now, he's putting his beats on full display, with the production album Open, to be released on September 27th, 2011 through New World Color / Nature Sounds.  Originally posted online as a Blu-produced instrumental set, Open has been transformed into a full-fledged production album.  Johnson Barnes and his gang of like-minded MCs laid vocals to every track, making this Open a brand new collection.

Featuring a slew of promising up-and-comers on the mic, Open is a perfect showcase for Blu's hazy, lo-fi production.  Along with two show-stopping appearances from Blu himself, the album features buzzed-about MCs like Fresh Daily, ScienZe, and Sene, as well as newer names like Just Lee and Tribe of Levi.   All guests were hand-picked by Blu, so Open also showcases his ear for talent, turning hip-hop fans on to the next generation of rhyme-spitters.  But in the tradition of classic production albums like In Control Vol. 1 and Soul Survivor, the main focus here is on the beats, which showcase the distinct sound a talented young beat-maker has been creating.
