You did listen to Lyrikill’s More Heart, More Sole last year, didn’t you? Well, if you didn’t you still have a chance to redeem yourself since the guy behind one of 2011′s best slept-on projects is back with his ode to yesteryear.
Retro is eight tracks of soulful production while Lyrikill waxes poetic about the city, shoes, and surroundings that created one of Hip-Hop’s new rising stars. Kill has a way of sputtering out syllables that appear like random puzzle pieces, but once they land on the table, you’ll see a puzzle put into place spelling out precisely the point he’s bringing home.
To mark the 2nd anniversary of its release, battle veteran and fellow Sandpeople member Illmaculate presents the sequel, CHRON: Legacy. This time it's Illmaculate in the lead role over Lawz Spoken's gritty, dramatic production but OnlyOne "co-stars" on a majority of the album's tracks (think Ghostface Killah on Only Built 4 Cuban Linx). Supporting-cast includes IAME, Goldini Bagwell, Cassow, and Epp.
Uptown XO continues the march towards the release of his new solo album: "Colour de Grey." Today, XO offers a new visual for the track "Rugged" off his pre-album mixtape "The Color Gray." The track, produced by A.B. the Pro, features Obi Say and Awthentik spitting bars alongside XO who breaks it down to a fraction.
