Audio: Trek Life - Rap Time f/ Bishop Lamont & Hawdwerk
Courtesy Mello Music Group.
Trek Life is one of the unsung heroes of California rap. He came up with Bishop Lamont, Evidence, DJ Babu, Blu and a bevy of other talented DJs, producers, and emcees (before anyone knew who they were). He's done entire projects with long time friend Oddisee. His music has taken him around the world more than a few times, even having toured with label mates Diamond District throughout Europe. Trek, always soft spoken about his accomplishments, wouldn't tell you all this himself.
TwoineyLo says "To Whom May Concern, I dedicate this song to all the people in the world like myself who get confronted by the police because they look suspcious when really they aren't doing anything. This situation happens alot in my life and I see this happening to alot of people in the ghetto. Hope You ENJOY. Make sure you leave comments, drop a like, and subscribe to my chanel. Sincerly, TwoineyLo"
Emcee/Producer Ron Rico hailing out of Baltimore MD, displays a raw rap style while the beat delivers an old school feel with heavy drums and a Rock driven sample. Ronís latest material will give his fans a chance to know him as an emcee thus the birth of his first single "This Is Something" featuring Nottz Raw.
While at SXSW in Austin, Tx we made our way into the AllHipHop showcase headlined by Master P, Talib Kweli, and Raekwon. Here is some live footage of the Hip Hop mogul Master P performing his hit "Bout It Bout It" for a packed house, this truly was a legendary performance.
It's a Brooklyn affair on this record featuring up and coming rapper Smith and veteran spitter Maffew Ragazino. A contrast of two generations, you'll find the Brooklynites sharing similar stories through the exchange of smooth mafioso rhymes over a booming production from Woodrow Skillson of the Head Banga Muzik camp headed by Dot Da Genius. "Don Shit" will also find it's way on upcoming "Smith Project" mixtape, the official debut from Smith due out this Summer.
