Brother Ali on 'Left In The Deck'
"I'm excited to release a new musical project. 'Left In The Deck' is a collection of 10 raw, grimy recordings made in basements and hotel rooms around the world. This demo-tape style release was produced entirely by Jake One. It hasn't been polished up for the market or cleaned for the radio. These songs were left in their original demo form and are intended only for my family of direct supporters. The beats are grimy and I feel like this is some of the best rhyming I've ever captured on tape."

Following club anthems such as “Bought a Boat” ft. Jadakiss, “Any Way You Want It” ft. Jeremih and “Dolly on that Molly” ft. Juicy J, the latest single from Harvey Stripes' “A Penny and a Nightmare” takes a decidedly introspective turn. “Penny x Nightmare” features vocals by sultry Toronto songstress Shi Wisdom and was produced by Deli.
Video: Soul Food Cypher @ Georgia State University
So like usual I was going about my day, checking emails and surfing the net, looking for something new for you Lazies. It was at that moment when I got a message from the homie Shalom saying, "Soul Food Cypher @ Georgia State kicks off in less than 30 minutes". Just like that I was out the door, workout clothes and all. There's no way I'm missing this AND at my alma mater. The campus looked a little different (I graduated in 2006), but after about 10 minutes of trying to remember where everything was I walked into room 470 of the University Center to see the homie Fort Knox speaking to a room full of emcees. Shortly after the cypher started. Relax and Listen!
"Show That" is gQ Marley's first official single off his upcoming Project D.R.E.A.M. 2: Revenge of the NERD. The upbeat chaotic instrumental is accompanied with a contagious hook that will have you chanting the chorus even when the song finished.
In addition, the song lures and pulls the listener in as gQ delivers hypnotizing lyrics containing witty humor, mind numbing metaphors, thought provoking puns, and quotable idioms. gQ's vocal compliments the beat as he matches the same beat pattern and switches tempo throughout the song keeping the listener entertained. This song has been compared to the likes of Wiz Kahlifa's "Work Hard, Play Hard," A$AP Rocky's "Wild for the Night, Big Sean's "A$$ (Dance)"just to name a few. In short this slightly witty and infectious song is the perfect crossover between mainstream and underground hip hop.
Live Percenters: Deeper People (feat. Carlitta Durand)
For their next single off the upcoming album, The Corners Involved, the Live Percenters slow it down a bit with "Deeper People". Mello Drum Addict, Physical Graffiti and I-Be4Evr rap with easy over Dukes Go Up's laid back production. Rounding out the track is an infectious hook sung by the lovely and talented Carlitta Durand.
