MP3: Daily Bread - "The Note" (Gensu Dean Remix)


MP3: Daily Bread - "The Note" (Gensu Dean Remix)

Courtesy Mello Music Group.

Hassaan Mackey, fresh off his A3C appearance in Atlanta is preparing for a few more shows, while his Daily Bread partner Apollo Brown is back in the lab fresh off his European tour with The Left.  Still the two have kept their nose to the grindstone and continue campaigning for their incredibly dope album Daily Bread.  The latest material to come out of the camp is a remix from Dallas, Texas based producer Gensu Dean (who produced for Crooked Letterz, Lord Jamar, Ol Dirty Bastard, Roc Marciano) of the track The Note.

The Song:
 
The Note [Gensu Dean Remix] is a serious, slightly ominous toned track starts with singing in what almost sounds like a call to prayer over a sitar.  Then Dean cuts up some drums, adds some bass stabs, and layers vocal chanting throughout the beat to create a thought provoking, heavy new edition of Apollo's original.
 
Additionally Dean drops a new chorus reflecting on those who are so caught up in the grind for money that they lose sight of the everyday folks - a sort of note to self to maintain focus on what's important even while some blaze up in their pursuit of materialism. Hassaan Mackey of course spits raw and reflects on writing, music, and the deals we make: "Looking at the paper like hmmm I'll take her."
 
The Album:

Back with that grit, tell the soundman to turn this sh*t up. New York MC Hassaan Mackey slangs words and onomatopoeia, rhymes like he wants to, and backs the whole room into a corner with a raw vision of the streets that pierces ordinary experience and gets at life’s marrow. Meanwhile Detroit producer Apollo Brown lays the sonic foundation with hard drums and big bass, while the crackle of vinyl hums. Gritty and soaked in soul, Daily Bread brings to mind an old photograph that bangs out the system. Each track is heavy with a sense of atonement, haunted by experience, and energized by a cathartic sense of hope. Give us our Daily Bread and forgive us our trespasses.

Kelz teams up with Lil Simz for this track, the first promotional track released in the lead up to Kelz's EP coming February 2012. With a crazy combination of bars, Kelz and Lil Simz unleash fire on Kajmir Royal's production. Entitled Storm Maker, Kelz and Lil Simz are clearly both trying to take the industry by storm with this track.

MC/Producer Announces Release of Upcoming Album With New Single

Multitalented MC/producer hasHBrown is happy to announce the release of his brand new single, "The Death Penalty." This is the first single from his solo sophomore album, Break Something, which will be released as a free download on November 30th.

Coming straight out of Houston, TX, hasHBrown began his rhyming career alongside John Dew and Hip-Phonix with the hip-hop trio, The Council, until 2008 when he started releasing solo mixtapes. Fast forward three years, and now hasHBrown is ready to release Break Something, the follow-up to his cathartic EP, Relationsh*t, featuring guests like Guilty Simpson, Dustin Prestige and Dannie Walker. "It's a departure from my core sound," HB says of the new project. "This project is more influenced by rock and funk. So it's going to sound a lot different, more aggressive."

In keeping with this newfound sound, hasHBrown's first single off of Break Something is "The Death Penalty," a cautionary tale for anybody looking to question his skills or test his authority. "Any person in a leadership role will be challenged by new comers that may want the spot they obtain," explains HB. "In essence, the 'penalty' of leadership could get you killed, and in this song I'm defending my mantle as one of the best newcomers out of Houston, TX."

Although hasHBrown produced many of the songs on Break Something under his other moniker, Jett I. Masstyr, he chose a beat by another Houston producer, YPhoenix, after hearing it at a beat battle. "I'm a sucker for crazy samples and fierce drums," says HB. "We built our relationship from just talking about his production after the battle. Then, he sent it over, and natural inspiration took over." Lyrics like "This the calm before the storm/ above average to the norm/ I'm a savage Jason Bourne/ Contract killer but I'm calm," and heavy guitar-driven samples establish the song's badass attitude and reiterate what hasHBrown is about, which is, according to him, "I'm here, I'm not scared, and I go hard."
