MP3: AM Breakups - "Good Times Had By All"

A.M. Breakups teams up with Billy Woods (Super Chron Flight Brothers) for a brand new single off the upcoming Cowardly Threats & Hideous Cruelty mixtape. "Good Times Had By All" features the Utica producer at his most subdued, a rainy day dreariness that perfectly matches the dark humor of Woods' bitter verses. The flip side of the track is Breakups' spectacular remix of the Super Chron Flight Brothers "42nd St." off the duo's critically-acclaimed LP, Cape Verde. This is Breakups at his uptempo best, the meticulously layered beat shifting beneath itself but perfectly couching the fast-paced 70's concept of the original track. The song features the Super Chron Flight Brothers along with Wu-Tang's Lord Superb (Supreme Clientele), HiCoup and Pastense. For those of you who haven't checked out this kid's debut album, The Cant Resurrection, which Backwoodz Studioz dropped last week, hopefully now you have one more good reason to stop sleeping.

MP3: DaVinci & ST 2 Lettaz - "Get Her High" Prod. By Lunice


From Audible Treats:

MP3: DaVinci & ST 2 Lettaz - "Get Her High" Prod. By Lunice

Southern Hospitality Brings Together San Francisco, Huntsville, And Montreal For Killer Collaboration

The Song:

The good folks over at Southern Hospitality have been holding down quality rappers from down South and out in the Bay Area for some time, so it's only fitting that their latest orchestration features none other than critically acclaimed rap heavyweights DaVinci, repping San Francisco, alongside ST 2 Lettaz, one half of Huntsville, Alabama duo G-Side. Topping things off, Montreal's producer/DJ Lunice provides the beat, only his second time working under the auspices of hip-hop, and based on the results it sounds like he should continue his forays into the genre.

"Get Her High" kicks off with a smattering Lunice's dark, layered synths, off-kilter hi-hats, and pounding drums, and chopped and pitched vocal samples, before transitioning into a catchy repeating, ascending synth loop for ST's and DaVinci's verses, both heavy on the type of bravado and shit talk that sounds especially good coming from the emcee's complimentary raspy vocals. "Your bitch got a Boosie fade," quips ST 2 Lettaz. "Every day is St. Patty's, I'm just trying to get my green on/ Peruvian flake cake patties, I put my team on/ Yes, hustling is a part of me, it's something in my genome," raps DaVinci. And finishing things off, Lunice offers his own verse of sorts, continuing to flip and stack synths until the track's close.

MP3: Kokayi "DJ Play"


From Audible Treats:

MP3: Kokayi – "DJ Play"

Illvibe And Kokayi Team Up For New Single From All Together Now Compilation Album

The Song:

The ever flavorful, genre-swapping artist/producer/singer/songwriter Kokayi might still be riding high on the wave of success brought on by his new album, Robots & Dinosaurs, but he's focused on keeping the fire hot, this time around dropping a brand new non-album single. The new song, "DJ Play," is part of Illvibe's highly anticipated album, All Together Now, a comprehensive project over two years in the making that also features Bahamadia, Invincible, Conya Doss, and Hezekiah, among many others. For Kokayi, his involvement in the project didn't take much persuasion. "The jawn cranked," explains the D.C. representer, "and I have mad respect and appreciation for the Illvibe cats so it was a no-brainer on the collaboration."

With a rather metallic feel, "DJ Play," which is produced by DJ Lil' Dave of Illvibe, is ready for the club straight from the start; a dance-ready beat complete with reggae adopted rim-shots, closely followed by various club tones and an infectious, wobbling synth line provide the backdrop for Kokayi's vocals. And perfectly so, given Kokayi's fitting lyrics and signature flow, "I'm like ease...that's not too fast, now I'm sitting here feeling dumb/ I don't know where that come from/ I'm just a simple man with a simple tongue/ I got a Simple Plan, my boy like you simple, son/ but I'm simply falling over you, like a simpleton." As you might have guessed, the lyrical inspiration for this track was drawn from those after-hour weekend nights, and has Kokayi telling the story of "a hapless romantic trying to win the heart of, or rather trying to kick some unattached solid game to someone he finds attractive, while stumbling over his romantic side the entire way."

Fans can also look for a music video to accompany the single in the coming weeks.

Video: J. Pinder - "All That Fire"


From Riot Act:

Video: J. Pinder - "All That Fire"

There are few things as captivating as the fire of a brilliantly talented and determined artist. Justin Allen Pinder, known by his widespread fanbase as J. Pinder, is blazing his trail to the spotlight. He first captured the attention of hip-hop fans with the release of his debut mixtape, Backpack Wax, produced by the legendary Vitamin D and nabbed the attention of national audiences on his guest mc spot on Jake One’s White Van Music (Rhymesayers Ent.) on the song “Big Homie Style”. Through strong, focused work and a constant effort to learn from local legends, J. Pinder quickly connected with some of the Pacific Northwest's most respected producers, such as DJ Vitamin D, Jake One, and Kuddie Fresh for his newest release, Code Red 2.0.

Lyrically, J. Pinder doesn't clutter his songs with wasted syllables. Instead, he earns respect of fans and press alike with his honest delivery, abstract poetry and intelligent poignancy! Couple that with supreme production and the tracks on Code Red 2.0 positively smoke... Guest appearances from Rapper Big Pooh (Little Brother), Toki Wright (Rhymesayers), and Guilty Simpson (Stones Throw) add evidence how far and wide his name is becoming recognized in hip hop circles.

His newest songs waiver from the raw, honesty of "Three Words", to the mellow-vibed echoing sample of "Upside Down" straight through to the sheer, bold ambition of "Go Far". Every last song is rife with J. Pinder's genius ability to imbue everything he touches with genuine personality and his lean, less-is-more take on lyricism. Code Red 2.0, presented by The Hall of Justus and The Arc Mg, officially sets a new high-water mark for J. Pinder!
