Philly Emcee Has-Lo enlists legendary producer Kev Brown for his latest reenvisioning, "Never Was Yours." The track appears on Has-Lo's upcoming project "Conversation B" which hits stores November 15th.

The Song:

Never Was Yours is a stark look at life's often unforgiving path. The recognition of everything's impermanance is reflected upon throughout the tracks lyrical display of wisdom. Has-Lo tackles aging, disapointment, loss, financial woes, and the devils deals we make to attain success, all with a stoic's calm and unflinching eye of a narrative reporter.
"I compete to win though I lose myself / In a penthouse room, with a view from hell"
Underneath Has' heavy lyricism, Kev Brown kicks another Low Budget classic. Kev's track features a funky guitar chop, minimal drum programming, and an atmospheric vocal sample to complete that completes the transformation.
The Album:

Conversation B is a complete re-envisioning of In Case I Don't Make It. Exile, J-Zone, Oddisee, Kev Brown, Eric Lau, Apollo Brown and more lend their extensive production powers to the project. It is eclectic, melodic, chaotic, bleak and brutal all at once. The journey of a man at the tipping point continues.

Houston's own Rob Jay is excited to release his soulful sophomore EP, Millionaire Before 30. Produced and mixed entirely by Ammbush from the Drums & Ammo collective, the eight-track digital project is being offered to fans for free download.

"This project was really my first full-length collaborative effort where it's just me and a producer," says Rob Jay, explaining his work with Ammbush. "His studio puts you in this ultra hip-hop state of mind. It makes you feel like rap is the only thing that exists." Aside from Ammbush's involvement in the album, Rob Jay's only other guest feature is from John Dew, a fellow Houstonite who was featured on the EP's latest single, "Wise Man," and also handled art direction for the album. "I'm not one to ask someone to be on my album just because they may be hot right now," notes Rob. "John Dew is a friend and I really like his music; the collaboration came naturally."

Rob Jay takes on a variety of different themes with each track on the EP, ranging from his dedication to the rap game on "Hip-Hop Lifer" to his bedroom prowess on "Love Sex, Drug Sex." Before "Wise Man," Rob dropped his first single titled "My Past Life," a conceptual piece that discusses the trial and tribulations of his hypothetical past life in Harlem during the late 1960s. "Millionaire Before 30 serves as a progression from my last project in the sense that it's more cohesive and it's not a group of songs that was thrown together," says Rob. "It's the best-engineered project I've ever done."

If DJ Babu and Trek Life were books, the Dilated Peoples DJ/producer and the West Coast rhymesayer would be shelved in the Non-Fiction section - they're simply too real to fit in anywhere else. The eighth exclusive world premiere in DJBooth and Event Electronics' ongoing 20/20 Music series, this gritty selection finds Babu crafting a slow-rolling synth-sample beat (complete with a hook sampled from U.T.F.O.'s classic Leader of the Pack) to back Trek's unfettered display of lyrical aggression.
