MP3: Rift Napalm & Meaty Ogre's Track "Naples Deli"

MP3: Rift Napalm & Meaty Ogre's Track "Naples Deli"

Rift Napalm has been an elusive figure in hip hop. Briefly flirting with his 1st love over sporadic appearances including underground favorite 'Long Dirty Word' produced by Meaty Ogre, there was high hope & anticipation. However, since then, life itself has gotten in the way of making music. Hip hop briefly lost the balancing act, leaving an album's worth of introspective and complex lyrics unrecorded. 'Closure' is an attempt to end that chapter and reverse that trend. Rift makes amends with these 5 songs, once again using Meaty Ogre as the perfect mediator.

This EP celebrates a overdue collaboration of 2 long time G4 contributors. 'Closure' brings back Meaty Ogre's instrumentals from Dreas' cult classic Heardrums label 45s, all which are long sold out and go for top dollar. Over the instrumentals are tracks that Rift's followers may recognize from live performances over the years, including 'Coffee Cold' which had been also previously recorded and saw limited release on G4 tour CDs in the early 2000s. Also included is one newer track, 'Water Sine'. Overall it's a refreshing look at what was, what is, and what can become.

From Zack Einhorn:

Video: Yonas - "Shy Kidz"

As YONAS' official debut "The Proven Theory" continues to build momentum unlike any other Independent Artist we've seen, he releases his second video from the album, for the fan favorite "SHY KIDZ".

Within the first week of the albums release, The Proven Theory broke the Top 100 for Rap / Hip Hop on the iTunes Charts. At SXSW, YONAS sat down with KarmaloopTV  to give fans a look into the album, and now he's giving fans another taste of the album with "Shy Kidz" -  a track that leaves no doubt as to how or why he's been honored by the likes of Billboard, the New Music Seminar and the Independent Music Awards for his songwriting prowess.

From start to finish YONAS powers through the track with fluid lyrical precision and relates to people world wide as he states "It's broken, ain't no fathers/ houses empty back to the charters/ If it kills you, it makes you larger/ whatever don't crush you makes you harder."

From AKIR Music:

Video: AKIR Presents "Is This The End?"

While in Cali last month, I had a great time visiting the good people at Alchemetric in San Fransisco. I arrived at the studio with Lil Mike ready to work but with no idea what to expect. We sat around for about an hour and I came up with about five hooks to five songs (while everyone else was drinking and ate bbq, much to my chagrin lol). Fortunately my songs usually come out better when I'm hungry; here’s my latest example.

Here it is: "Is This The End?"
