Adam: "Recorded on an especially hot and steamy day (weather-wise, not love life-wise), this edition of The Adam B Experience has a few tricks up its sleeve. Don't worry, you're still getting all the high quality underground hip-hop goodness you've come to expect from the show, but you're also getting a little something extra. There's at least one artist featured in this month's podcast that you wouldn't expect to hear on The Adam B Experience, and a full explanation as to why I decided to play his music. I also go off on a tangent about music and the borderline imaginary notion of complete realness. Check it out! Follow me on Twitter at @AdamsWorldBlog or hit me up with feedback at AdamB@RapReviews.com."

Many hip-hop artists claim titles like Entrepreneur, Hustler, or Go-Getter, but none exemplify this title better than Lefty. Born Kareem Williams in South Philadelphia, PA, Lefty, the son of The Late Doo Wop singer Charles Williams From "The Turbans", began his quest to hip-hop stardom in 1998, rapping his heart out on the set of Philly Most Wanted video shoot for legendary producer Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes, heavily influenced by 2Pac, E-40, Eightball and MJG and more, as part of a South Philly rap group named Plead Da Fifth, including Takedown Records star Daytona, among others.
Ezko is back with new music, and "The Presentation" serves as a reintroduction to his music and who he is as an artist with a very Boom Bap-esque sounding production from Mr. Carmack featuring Zoey Ka$h who recently featured on Vibe with her hit single "UHr Love Song". Ezko hopes to catch new listeners as well as regaining the interest of old listeners. Enjoy the track and get ready for his new album "Coming Of Age".
A hard hitting ominous track entitled "Pawn $hops, Gun $tores & Liquor $tores". Inspired by scenes of the cult classic "Boyz N the hood", the song is an expansion on the idea of gentrification & the history of violence practiced against african americans post slavery that became practices within those same communities.

Watch as Griffy battles his demons brought to life in the backdrop of a deserted insane asylum deep in the woods. From eerie spirits to confusion and fear, this video is a visual journey through the mind of the insane.
Short Bio: Born and raised in Uptown Washington D.C. I've wanted to be a rapper since the age of 13. I started taking my career seriously during Nov 2012. I can't really say who influenced me but rap is my passion and I live to do this. I'm currently a senior at UDC and I'm majoring in Business.
