On October 30th, MHz Legacy will release their new, self-titled album via Man Bites Dog Records. The album will be the first cohesive offering from MHz Legacy in over a decade - but it's not because the crew hasn't been busy. Quite the contrary: RJD2 has become one of music's most rangy and talented producers; Copywrite, who spent the aughts being courted by Roc-A-Fella Records, remains, along with Jakki Da Motamouth and Tage Future, among rap's most talented lyricists; and Camu Tao, before his untimely passing in 2008 following a bout with lung cancer, was a flagship artist on the now-defunct Def Jux label, forming the duo Central Services with El-P, and serving, with his unique style and delivery, as an influence to many. Two of those people that call Camu influences are Danny Brown and Harry Fraud, both of whom appear on this latest single from MHz Legacy, "Spaceship".
Free DL: Wax, Ed E. Ruger & Kosha Dillz are "Nationally Rollin'"
The bicoastal Kosha Dillz hits the road with Venice Beach native Wax and North Cackalacka's Ed E. Ruger on "Nationally Rollin'," the lowrider influenced road trip anthem. Produced by L.A.'s Jon Jackson, "Nationally Rollin'" fuses several funk, jazz and latin music elements over quick paced percussions, that gives each emcee a lane to showcase their 'roller coaster flow.' Each verse starts off effortless and smooth and ends in a double timed crescendo before merging back into the hooks anthemic chant: "NY to LA yo', DC to Diego, Carolina to the Bay yo', we just nationally rollin'.." Be sure to check out Kosha Dillz' performance in Part 2 of The Warm Up Cypher (with RZA on the turntables) at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards.
Over the past couple years, there's been a noted resurgence in the Bay Area's hip-hop scene, not only in the quality of the music coming from the Northern California region, but also in the diversity sounds. Paramount in that resurgence has been a breed of new rappers, and one of the first artists given notice is rising Vallejo rapper Moe Green. Moe first hit the scene with the 2010 release of his debut mixtape, Rocky Maivia: Non-Title Match, and has since followed up on that project with a string of noteworthy releases, including the Lionheart EP, the Free Water EP, and, most recently, a chopped and screwed version of Lionheart. Today, Moe is releasing his latest effort, Lionheart II.
