mp3: UGLYFRANK – DARTZ

Since UGLYFRANK is still relatively unknown I know saying this comes with a risk of everyone assuming its hyperbole meant to over-hype and cause buzz but I truly believe that in the year 2014 no rapper has decisively commanded the mic as well as UGLYFRANK.  If you didn’t listen to his EP BOBBY HILL that dropped earlier this year, you definitely should but …

Chaden x Noah B – New New York

Considering how New York stands, always has stood, and probably will always stand as a music mecca, “New New York” is a bold declaration in title alone.  Although they’ve been bumping around the blogosphere for a minute, Chaden, Noah B, B. Mob, Jalal Salaam and Stainless Steele aren’t the biggest presences in the world of hip-hop.  But they should be.  “New …

mp3: Tay Devenny – sigh

  It’s rare that a rap song sounds exactly as it’s titled but leave it to Tay Devenny to perfectly capture the complex warmth of a sigh.  Wrapped in a gorgeous beat from the equally appropriately titled producer nooon, Devenny expounds upon pain, rejection, stress and basically anything else that would make you want to sigh.  But it’s a sigh …

Video: livmartez – softmoss verse (ft. Sudan Moon)(prod. Deflon)

I’m on the verge of sleep right now and this is basically exactly what I want to be listening to.  “Softmoon verse” is a dreamy, jazzy piece of r&b infused hip-hop (or hip-hop infused r&b… it’s really getting hard to tell sometimes these days) that will happily soundtrack your mid-afternoon daydreams.  I don’t know that much about any of the …

EP: UGLY FRANK – BOBBY HILL

Ever since I first heard Ugly Frank on Khris P‘s song “Casino Royale” I was impressed with his flow and immediately wanted to hear more.  Since then Ugly Frank has continued to develop as part of ILLFIGHTYOU and now with BOBBY HILL Frank is definitely at the top of his game.  Throughout the EP Frank tears through every track without ever sounding like …
