In two strikingly similar careers that seem to parallel each other at every turn, the charismatic rappers have forged bodies of work that are some of the most respected in hip hop. Bloody tracks, devastated mics and shattered perceptions have all been left in the wake of these two dynamic MCs. Bill and Paz are well known for a penchant for heavy beats and viciously rugged rhymes; both are known for their incendiary live performances, and this was an inevitable collision.

Both MCs have followed similar, unrelenting paths to their current destinations; each having garnered heavy respect throughout the '90s during a prolific period of independent Hip Hop. Bill with Uncle Howie Records and Paz with his home-grown Enemy Soil Records. From the '90s into the new millennium, Ill Bill and Paz produced a string of underground classics with Paz's memorable work as the long-time leader of Philadelphia's Jedi Mind Tricks and Bill's Brooklyn-bred powerhouse Non Phixion. Both groups were responsible for creating music that has since been described as classic: Non Phixion's The Future is Now and JMT's Violent By Design. Paz and Bill have also launched successful solo careers and have put in work with supergroups such as Paz's battle-tested outfit Army of the Pharaohs, and Ill Bill's collective of legendary MCs: La Coka Nostra.

Like their name, The Heavy Metal Kings display all the slick, rhythmical timings of Hip Hop while incorporating the adrenaline and utter desecration of Metal. Together their vision and sound are allowed the full breadth of expression and the sound result is a collection of music that lives up to its name with the kind of blood-curdling sonic bombast that is only found in genres like Heavy Metal and Hardcore.

From 95 Flavas:

Free Download: TeV95 - "Crime Loops 2 (Beat Tape)"

Crime Loops 2 is the sequel to the smash instrumental project by Brooklyn based producer TeV95.

Crime Loops 2 is a collage of beats, edits, and loops that exude a taste of urban culture with a hint of Brooklyn's art renaissance.

Influenced by everything from Roberta Flack to Ruby Andrews and more. Crime Loops 2 continues to explore many different methods of sampling and editing, from the classic to the obscure.

Many of today’s artistic masterpieces are nearly impossible to release for sale because of outdated intellectual property laws. It's arguable that some of today's most popular artists may find the need to break the law to create their art. Hence the name, Crime Loops.

PR: Baron Von Alias - "Move Over" (prod. Khrysis)

Baron Von Alias the Time Travelling emcee from  the UK has returned. After achieving two top 3 hits in the US College Radio Charts and gaining rave reviews for his latest album 'Out-of-Body Experience', The Baron has proved he has a consistent work rate to match the best of them.  Hailing from Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North of England he has bombarded us with albums since his arrival in 2007.

The Baron is held in very high regard by various hip hop blogs and review sites and has recently been chosen by the BBC to be part of the BBC Introducing Stage at Radio Ones Big Weekend Festival performing alongside the likes of Foo Fighters, Black Eyed Peas, Tinie Tempah, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and many more. The BBC have a history of picking all the stars of tomorrow so all bodes well for the Baron in the near future. Starting off this year's festival proceedings in the UK with the BBC Radio One Big Weekend Baron is also performing at the Evolution Festival alongside the likes of Tinie Tempah, Plan B and again many more.

February 2009 saw Baron Von Alias become the MySpace featured artist after the release of the Mechanism mixtape, which lead on to his first official album release in April 2009 named 'Timepiece'. The Baron has since released numerous albums and singles on iTunes all gaining wide internet coverage and great reviews. Baron also has a very interesting selection of videos that accompany many of his tracks, which are all well worth a look having won Best Hip Hop video by for 'Silence Masks' in 2008, the videos have only become more and more zany and insane.

Acknowledging the craft of his contemporaries the Baron has been joined on his intricate time travel through the present day by a hand picked selection. The likes of Hip Hop heavy weights such as Guilty Simpson, Oh No, Khrysis, T3 (Slum Village), Frank N Dank, Wildchild, MED, Wordsworth, Melanie Rutherford, Prince Po, Steesh, Foreign Beggars and many more are enjoying the enthusiasm and originality which Baron Von Alias exudes, with a new album on the way and brand new Khrysis Produced track 'Move Over' as the lead single it seems there is alot more to come, sooner than you think. As the Baron proves 'Time waits for no man'.

MP3: Scheme (Molemen) - "Solitaire" (prod. ILL Brown)

From Scheme773:

MP3: Scheme (Molemen) - "Solitaire" (prod. ILL Brown)

In "Solitaire" Scheme talks about the experiences he might have missed on while pursuing his dream. If you ever have had something in life you are passionate about, you understand that most of the times it takes a great deal of sacrifice to accomplish your goals. What were once priorities, now become after thoughts, and what were once dreams, now become a reality. At the end, it's all worth it, even though you may lose some on the way there. Either you follow your path, or you let them deter you. Produced by Chicago's own ILL Brown, the song captivates the good and the bad experiences one might miss out on the road to success.
