While city governments around the U.S. allow themselves to be burdened with matters of fiscal crisis, crumbling infrastructure and school attendance, out here in the Golden State, one elected city council has shown they’re a cut above the rest.
The City of L.A. has issued an official Certificate of Recognition for Madlib's weed-smoking, brick throwing, rap alias Quasimoto. The certificate commends Quasimoto for “excellence in masonry,” and graciously congratulates him on his new album Yessir Whatever.
The document, shown here, is signed by Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and all thirteen members of the city council including Eric Garcetti, and a bunch of other ones we never heard of 'til now.

Your early mornings and long nights are about to have a new theme song. NYC-based emcee and producer, Syler, orchestrates a bittersweet symphony of his own that pushes you to grustle for that dream you dream for. It's all worth it once you see your hard work come to fruition. And if Syler and fellow NY transplant Nitty Scott, MC, isn't enough to get you going, DJ-JS 1 of the Rock Steady Crew provides the extra dope cuts.

DJ's here we go again with another Project Pat street banger. This record is called "Gas" and is off the upcoming Cheez-N-Dope 2 mixtape that is dropping soon hosted by DJ Scream. The track is produced by Lil Awree and this is the premiere of this new joint.
"Gun Fever" single available through Amazon - click on the album cover below!
Ever since the early 1990's rap music collective Hieroglyphics have laid the groundwork for the evolution of hip-hop to become one of the most influential aspects of popular American and international culture. Thrust back into the spotlight with their recent single "Gun Fever," a commentary on our culture's ongoing obsession with guns and violence, they are now set to release a new album on July 16th entitled The Kitchen, featuring 17 tracks woven together by the cutting, mixing and beat chopping skills of Sacramento DJs/producer crew The Sleeprockers.
Scratches, grooving bass lines and brass samples abound on the predominantly up-tempo record that fluidly combines archival audio, new productions and DJ skills with Hieroglyphics' compelling flows. Drawing its title from The Sleeprockers' practice of setting up their production equipment in their kitchen, as well as referencing the creative process of assembling the album's disparate ingredients into one cohesive record, The Kitchen promises to be an authentic presentation of Hieroglyphics' signature lyrical prowess.
