Before I get into this blog post, I must say that this is what Hip Hop needs...Diabolical Rap Battles featuring the latest and the greatest. Case in point...FREDRO STARR vs. KEITH MURRAY! AmbrosiaForHeads writes, "After more than a year of hype, promotion, and anticipation, Keith Murray and Fredro Starr finally battled. The October 4 battle at Brooklyn, New York’s Milk River saw the two 1990s major label stars from their crews (Def Squad and ONYX, respectively) square off in a crowded boxing ring. Perhaps symbolically, the MC battle nearly became a physical tussle after the men—and referees struggled to manage the microphone—and each others’ personal space. The MC War event is captured on film, and features nearly 30 minutes of action—and not all of it is head-to-head rhyming. However, Heads can largely agree that it was Fredro’s night, in a battle that seemed to go as deep as its hype videos projected."
Nahright writes, "Blackout Brothers Meth and Red reunite on “Straight Gutta”, a new leak from Meth’s upcoming album The Meth Lab, which will be out August 21st."
"This past May, I released a street album titled "Work In Progress 3". Throughout the year I campaigned the project with radio and performances and videos and such. With this new record, "Everything New", I'm kicking 2014 off with new music to keep people listening. I plan on dropping a few projects this year with visual content." - L.O.
Pro Era's CJ FLY gives you a tour around his hometown Brooklyn, New York on some jazzy Cookin Soul production. 'Still The Motto' has a sick ass beat that reminds you of that old-fashion hip hop. It one of those 'good feelin' songs that relaxes your mind, uplifts you, and takes you back to a time when you were carefree. CJ Fly tells you to puff on the weed but you don't need to smoke weed when listening to this. It's 'Fly' all on it's own.
