After taking the year off, Quanstar comes back with a vengeance with Yo Soy La Mierda: La Subida de un Hombre Negro on January 15th, 2013. Enlisting the assistance of longtime collaborators, LexZyne Productions, Quanstar takes listeners through an eclectic journey into his ego utilizing creative metaphors and allegory to braggadociously support the album’s title.
Stand out songs on Yo Soy La Mierda include:
“Kna Know” - A lyrical exercise over a bass-heavy, boom-bap sample ladened song that let’s listener’s know that no matter who they are...”they can’t be f!@#king with Quan”. The song is matched with an animation video directed and produced by Quanstar. http://soundcloud.com/quanstar/kna-know-1/s-vmFt4 .
Released on First Team Music and distributed through Halogen Records/InGrooves, Yo Soy La Mierda will be available for digital download on over 300 online retailers worldwide, including Itunes, Emusic, and Napster on January 15, 2013.
Guests include: Ghostface Killah, DJ Premier, Cappadonna, Roc Marciano, Vinnie Paz, Action Bronson, Oh No & Mr. MFN Esquire.
As Deck states, summing it all up: “When you see our face, you see the face of hip-hop, you see the face of music in this form. People do what they do—there's techno rap and all kinds of rap out there. But this is that speaking-real-words rap. Go ahead and dissect everything we're saying, you’ll get plenty out of it.”
Bronx-bred, Tampa-based emcee Rahim Samad presents the Jeff Osborne-directed music video for "Nothing To Gain", his new self-produced single from Justice/Reformation, his forthcoming album dropping February 2013. Raised down the block from Sedgwick Avenue, where Kool Herc started hip-hop years ago, Rahim released his first album Freedom/Resurrection in 2004, which Creative Loafing said made hip-hop "sound fresh all over again."
Audio Two's "Top Billin" is beyond classic. Even if you think you don't know it, the shit will sound familiar to anyone who's heard of rap music. My favorite thing about this song is that the lyrics are borderline awful at times; to wit, no one actually goes to jail for emcee assault (word to Pac and Biggie). But, none of that matters, due to the overall flavor. Purists might hate on this shit, saying I fucked with something that shouldn't be fucked with. Fuck 'em. Only the RZA can tell me what to do. This is an iconic song laced with 80s-era samples to get motherfuckers razin' the roof.
