Venomous x Trilian: Sounds of the Great Ones 2

Venomous has been an emcee that I've always admired since I've met him and heard his music, a highly talented emcee from Jersey that's educated, lyrically powerful and whoever he makes music with, I fully trust I'll hear an amazing finished product. He's teamed up with Trilian again for Sounds of the Great Ones 2 and the track featured below is "I Ain't Particular ft. DJ TMB" a hard hitting beat with those good vibes that we all love, hear it below!
To complete this project they are trying to get the vinyl pressed via Diggers Factory a la Kickstarter style and their goal is near, they are over 70% (100 vinyl minimum) and have 22 days left to meet it!

Curbside Jones Wolves' Clothing 100% Sheepreme Cotton

Curbside Jones 80 hit combo with the mental floorbreak!
Will the sheep makes the clothes or with the clothes make the sheep... damn.
Curbside comes through with an EP that open the discussion of the sheep and wolf, a tale of adapting to them and rising as you. He touches on death, parenthood effects and what's expected of your masculinity while traveling thru sound bites and conversations with electric and soulful beats that bump, a very real and honest talk with his audience. Short n' sweet Wolves' Clothing makes you think, what if you acted like the wolf to in turn come out and evolve what a wolf is or perhaps redefine what it is to be a wolf? At least that's what I got from it and it sounds great. Props to Curbside for the honesty and the window into his mind. Peep the EP below and the animated video for Been Wolf.

Uncommon Nasa's Written at Night

I should probably write a review for this...
Too busy zoning out, it's midnight tho.

I should probably write a review for this...
Too busy listening to Uncommon Nasa's wordplay and clever mainframe.

I should probably write a review for this...
Too busy letting my mind go when creating while people sleep.

I should probably write a review for this...
Too busy looping Compass, Small Change and The Patient to focus.

I should probably write a review for this...
Too busy vibing out to the beats and feels, making my brain waves pulsate.

I should probably write a review for this...
Too busy lost in the way this album feels, making me check my watch and rub my eyes.

I should probably write a review for this...
Too busy telling you to buy this now and thank me later.

You will.

Onyx x D.O.D. won't let you sleep

Well damn... I haven't heard a more threatening collabo than these two groups in a minute, Netherlands D.O.D. and Queens own Onyx. Bringing you to a place of darkness and savage hard hitting beats with great visuals. The videos are fantastically done and fit the mood perfectly, props to Andres Fouché! Shiftee, low down gritty and grimy to the fucking max.
Their album 'Shotgunz In Hell' (iTunesAmazon, Spotify) comes out today May 29 which is perfect to bump in that BBQ ya'll have going on right now, just bring the kids to play inside haha. Peep the other two videos they got for this release and get a fear for your life going, err... I mean a feel for the album.

BANG BANG BANG.

Powder Blues Got Me Itchin'

Maxx Julian is at his old awesome tricks again, this 'Powder Blues' Detroit collaboration with The Guns plays out like watching and turning the knob on a VHF box. All separate sounds yet same subject and cohesive, I love the randomness of it all and it sounds great overall. I always say that I wish there were more experimental and idea pieces like this, it strays away from the normal 1-10 track album and brings something new or reinvigorates ideas. Good beats, fun cokecept and FREE, ain't no beating that. I know many of you will enjoy this, I know I did.
