Unlike lightweight rappers “scared to face the reality of truth,” Guilty Simpson isn’t one to tiptoe around on the mic. “Truth Be Told” finds the Motor City rhymer bearing his soul over a slow-burning soul chop that is trademark Apollo Brown. Guilty’s usual ferocity is tempered by his introspection, reminiscing back to times when he was hustling and living fast but without direction. A sublime string loop gives Guilty’s monstrous mic presence center stage to tell his story, a specifically hood tale that is still widely relatable. Guilty punctuates his reflections with a worthwhile reminder: “You want change? It starts with you.”

I have been looking for an excuse to remix Exodus for a long time. Kanye and Jay-Z gave me one. But not Big Sean, I don't give him credit. He's just grasping at the coattails of giants. Giants in suits, that have coattails. Enjoy the remix!

“The Warning” will be released on 11-6-2012 and it marks the debut album from producer JP Beats whose past works include tracks with Dr. Dre, Jadakiss, Pete Rock, Kurupt, Canibus, and many more. JP Beats has teamed up with A&R Extraordinaire M-Eighty (Wu-Tang /Undergods/ Kurupt/Planet Asia etc) to bring fans the same level of lyrical intensity and diverse line-ups they have come to expect from “Wu-Tang Meets…” & “The Academy” backed with soundscapes of production impresario JP Beats.

@SmallPro - 'Cool Story, Pro' (Beat Tape)

Philly beatsmith Small Professor is back with his latest offering in the form of a beat tape appropriately titled 'Cool Story, Pro' which is available for digital download via Bandcamp for the bargain bin rate of $8.00. The project, which maintains Small Pro's soulful knock throughout, shifts moods around the halfway marker in a way explained best by the man himself:

"This is actually my second 'official' instrumental album, the first being 2008's 'Slowbus,' released on Seclusiasis. The album is (supposed to be) a story about a fictional relationship that starts off wonderfully and ends in sad, painful loss; at the time of its conception (early or mid 2010), I was coping with a recent breakup (and still dealing with issues from other past relationship failures), and constructing most of the second half of the album was my therapy. The first half - the lighthearted part - was mostly inspired by my current relationship. The original title was simply 'Jawn,' and was supposed to be released in fall 2011, but between the making of 'Gigantic, Vol. 1' and the other Jawn' albums/beat tapes, it was delayed until now. Stylistically, it was modeled after J Dilla's 'Donuts' and 14KT's 'Nowalataz' (2009), as well as being inspired by the "Chipmunk Soul" era of 2001-2003."

Journalist 103 sounds at home over the abundant jazz instrumentations of Oddisee, as he invites listeners on a journey through his psyche on "Walk With Me." The track exemplifies Journalist's lyrical capabilities and demonstrates why KevinNottingham.com refers to him as "a ground level street reporter with a message we need to hear."
