"Sleeping Walking" is a song I recorded around late fall of last year, I had plans to release it a lot sooner, but life got in the way, and I was working on and worry about other things that were a little more important at the time. But, on this Tuesday morning in March the timing never seemed better. Produced by Drielb bringing you the best in "funky spaceship music" I hope it's enjoyable.

"Gimme This" features heavy bass lines, ambient percussion, and more subtly the vocals in the shadows. The promising hybrid isn’t just a duo however, but a part of a larger collective. Definitely keep an ear, and eye out for work from the OBSG. Rodney Hazard x Raisin Brand are HZRDS RSNS.

The Icepick is probably the most multi-faceted emcee in the UK game, and is unarguably one of its best. He has one of the games most viscous flows, battles at an incredibly high level, and has a body of work that is both varied and experimental.

'Da' What Is Hip Hop - Jae Apollo (Essay)

Before I get into this week’s ‘Da’ What is Hip Hop? I would like to give a special thanks to Neighborhood Watch World Wide, Rap Review, Sinous Magazine and everyone else that has been supporting the series. We need that word-of-mouth attention and spread in order to see this thing achieve what I know it can. Even a few minutes to shout it out on FB/Twitter is helping us out!

I’d like to introduce Brooklyn, New York emcee Jae Apollo. Jae took some time to talk about what hip hop means to him with a special focus n its liberating qualities. Sometime’s artists, and even people in general, may feel pigeonholed into a particular style, life or attitude. Jae feels that hip hop allows him to be himself and do as he would like. Does hip hop free YOU?
