Video: Strong Arm Steady x Statik Selektah - "Premium"

Following their 2010 collaboration with Madlib on In Search of Stoney Jackson, Strong Arm Steady have teamed up with Statik Selektah for their 2nd Stones Throw release, Stereotype. The album is produced exclusively by Statik Selektah and will drop on August 14th.

Today, the video for "Premium" debuts. The video has already been featured on Complex, NahRight, 2DopeBoyz, and more. For this track, Strong Arm Steady emerge from a cloud of smoke with hazy vocals and the grinding production of Statik backing them. The video is a smoked-out kaleidoscope of colors and iconic pop culture images.

Video: Eboi x Marcus Price - "Fiend"


From RMG:

Video: Eboi x Marcus Price - "Fiend"

It is often easier said than done to unite two acclaimed talents in a project. Sometimes though, you can get the best of both worlds together and the end result becomes something completely new and exciting - like when Eboi and Marcus Price decided to make music together.

Separately, you hardly need to describe the two experienced and talented artistis. But together they form a duo, with Marcus Price responsible for productions and a sound that is more or less patented for the producer of Slang Musik. Eboi from Respect My Hustle contributes with rap that is hard to beat in Sweden, with a rhyme scheme and flow that is unique. The song will also be released as a video created by Måns Nyman. Cover art by OKOK.

Video: @Radioinactive1 - "Bury Me Standing"


From Dunn Deal PR:

Video: Radioinactive - "Bury Me Standing"

LA emcee Radioinactive dons yet another of Quincy Jones' old suits in the Owen Smith-directed video for "Bury Me Standing", a song from his new album The Akashic Record. Radio was part of Log Cabin, the '90s crew that included a young Murs and Eligh. Rolling Stone and URB co-signed him soon after he rapped as a goat on "Farmer's Market Of The Beast" from producer Omid's 1998 compilation Beneath The Surface, also featuring Dilated Peoples and Freestyle Fellowship. He dropped the solo albums Pyramidi, Free Kamal and Soundtrack To A Book. He collaborated with his crew Shape Shifters on Shape Shifters Was Here, and Daedelus and Busdriver on The Weather, and recently returned from three months traveling the Sahara Desert with a band of Tuaregs.

Free Download: @GensuDean - "Lo-Fi Finghaz Instrumentals"


From Mello Music Group:

Free Download: Gensu Dean - "Lo-Fi Finghaz Instrumentals"

Armed with a dusty SP-1200 and equally weathered records, Gensu Dean made a splash in the indie rap scene with his debut LP Lo-Fi Fingahz on Mello Music Group. The record was an uncompromising modern display of tradition—hardcore MC’s over hardcore beats, plain and simple. The project was a proud beacon for the old guard, a proclamation that hip-hop can grow but the roots will always be the foundation. Now Gensu and MMG are dropping the instrumentals.

Free Download:

Devoid of the MC’s that originally blessed the project, the instrumental version of Lo-Fi Fingahz tells the same story with a different strategy. Classic boom-bap is still at the forefront, but without bars over the beats the listener is left to dive further into the sonic structure of the tracks. The LP takes on more of a contemplative tone and the intricacies in The Grand Imperial’s production can stand out without distraction. You can notice just how hypnotic a quarter-bar guitar loop can be on “Block Prenup” or zone out to the eerie piano on “There You Have It.” At times a chop may bring to mind Premo or Marley Marl or a loop may be a reminder of the legacy of Extra P, Gensu Dean makes it crystal clear as to what class of hip-hop he belongs in.

Gensu Dean is as sharp as his namesake.

"Summer Sauté" - The Last 2hB MegaBeat (@2HungryBros)


From Robert M:

"Summer Sauté" - The Last 2hB MegaBeat

This week Ben Boogz is signing off on his funky mega beat campaign with a consistent break sample orchestra and humorous soundbytes to accompany them. This week's Boogz beat doesn't carry heavy or dark undertones of a pulled pork sandwich but rather the lightness and sweetness of the grilled watermelon slice or some saute'ed veggies in a lil soy sauce and some citrusy splash. So there you have it, a 9 minute soundtrack for your 4th of July Celebration and early too. So you can give it your approval rating and stamp.

Ben Boogz is known in his circle for his excellent black bean salsa and for preparing bright festive meals for holidays and birthdays.  Always watching their health and avoiding any sort of heavy sodium infusion, Boogz's family learned tasty substitutes for salts. So you can ask artists like Fresh Daily, Likwuid, P.so the Earthtone King, L.i.f.e. Long to Homeboy Sandman how Boogz's food is a feel good sensation post consumption sans meat sweats and alarming heart palpitations.

His style and finesse in the kitchen translate into his music production. His ear for samples like his knack for ingredients and spices. Well let's call this post a Trader Joe's sampling station, go get a taste. http://2hungrybros.bandcamp.com .
