L.A. (Lyr1cal Assass1n) the General is back with a quick freestyle to a track you may have heard. Enjoy.
Always dope when cool peoples get together to make something larger than them individually. With some dope chemistry from a track off of Troy's current release "Bricks In My Backpack 2: POWDER to the People" they decided to keep it moving and make an EP. This is the first release from the upcoming project.
Troy Ave & CNC - 501 Basic Blues
If you can't tell what this project is about, you LOST!!!. Peep it out, J. Bizness always keeps the music coming.
I Am Art is a mini-documentary on I.E. repper Stevie Crooks where we get to see the day to day of the artist as he readies his next release VLNS NVR DIE. Peep it out and get an idea of what you'll be hearing sooner than later. Shouts to Desi for sending this to me.
Not sure who Mod Sun is, but he has a tape with DJ Ill Will & DJ Rockstar and he's got Nipsey Hussle on this track. It's been a minute since I heard from Nip so new verses are always welcome over here. Produced by Statik Selektah, enjoy.
Not sure how I missed this. Young Lyxx hooks up with two names you've seen around here, so as I usually do, I share with ya'll. Enjoy.
The video to the track we dropped awhile back...enjoy and spread the word. PRONTO!!!
In the video, we looked to pay homage to Ali by cutting vintage footage of the champ and combining it with performance shots gathered at an old Los Angeles boxing gym Ali would visit back in the day (Westside Boxing Gym). - DreKidd
You know I dig Curren$y music...though I wish that they would drop some more videos from Weekend at Burnie's instead of the Verde Terrace mixtape. I still like this track but I really want to see a video for "Money Maker".
From Australia but found her way somewhere between Slauson, Inglewood, Compton and Watts. She's been working with Chordz and reps the D.R.U.G.S. camp. I was introduced to her over the summer and looked to tell ya'll about her awhile ago...but in the last week most folks will try to tell me they put me up on her. Anyways the homie STIX is one of the Executive Producers...peep it out.
#PLAYERSHIT goings on here. The Inglewood homie Damani got a smooth one here. Filmed in Vegas during the Mayweather/Ortiz fight weekend. And yes Damani was there (as evidenced by the video). A couple cameos, a great location with the Cosmopolitan and more. Enjoy...this is off that "On Vacation from Vacation". Directed by Jerome D.
I've been on this for the past week...HARD tho. So while I take this small break and head home I'll leave all ya'll who haven't heard of dude yet with this. He's from Harlem but on this track he gives respect to Texas. Oh Black Scale I see you!!!

Terrace Martin threw this out a few days back to give us some insight into the Locke High 2 project. It's good to hear the homie AB getting on a track. Real street shit on that verse...gives a great balance to Terrace's production as well as Punch (TDE) and his ability to always give the smoothest and vivid story bars. Enjoy and play loud.
If you didn't know, 9th Wonder dropped an album yesterday that you should go support as it has homies like Fashawn, Blu, Kendrick, Murs and more. This is actually the song with Kendrick Lamar as 9th groups him with two other Southern Cali emcees (past, present) to wreck shop. I also hear Swiff D contributed some production to this as well. Peep it. You can see other features on the artwork above.
Snoop tried to sneak this by me while I was waiting on the clearance for the Doggisode...smh. More funny facts with Android Miller (Andy Milonakis). Enjoy.
Snoop Dogg, DJ Quik, DJ Pooh, Battlecat, 1500 or Nothin, Gift Reynolds and more all in the studio together about to do work as well as put in work for DETOX. Snoop is ready to create something great and you can see his passion for the music still with over 20 years in the game. Enjoy.
New music video from a track off of Jay Rock's Follow Me Home album, now it stores by the way. Shouts to the homie Trey getting his act on in the video.
Yonas Michael sent this over to me a few minutes ago just to show the fans what he's been working on. A good feel good track for the next house party, bbq, road trip or even a friendly stroll. Download and enjoy and of course share with your friends.

I hadn't been keeping up with him on the site but I know that my folks at TopShelf have been knocking out visuals with him left and right. Here is the most recent...not sure if you would label it hip hop...BUT I am digging this song.
Good to see her getting her own music out to the masses. A new video for the song "It Ain't Gonna Hurt U", check the video out as it's always cool when there is an actual storyline to an R&B video. If you like the song you can download below.

You can head over to TITS and get you a few of the pieces in the series as well as the hoodies, bags and foam fingers. I think I need a few of these pieces too.

STIX knocks out some bars over a Watch The Throne track. He'll be wrecking Meek Mill's I'ma Boss track next. But marinate with this video in the meantime.
Ya'll know I fux with Fab & Lloyd Bank$...and Red Cafe usually makes dope tracks with Fab. Enjoy.
Speaking of Snoop Dogg, he decided to remix a Rihanna track then shoot a video for it. Why not?

The homie D. Beck had a production hand in this and showed it to me. Something different to check out this weekend. Enjoy.
I showed you the Frank Ocean video they did and after that I discovered they did this video to the opening track to Watch the Chair, I mean Throne. Pretty powerful video...but their storylines for these videos is always pretty intriguing. Enjoy and share with friends.
New Doggisodes episode of Road to Riches. Appearances from Daz, Kurupt, Soopafly and Warren G. Peep it out.
Dubb been on the attack with videos and music...here's a new one with CSD squad.
New video from Mann w/ cameos from BEeFF. Nice banger for a house party.
All I'll say about this video is Kendrick bodied this and then he & Green Lantern talk about the current state of hip hop. Basically how artists are moving majorly without being signed to major labels. Pay attention...oh and Dave I see you.
I met Iggy at the 2Dopeboyz BBQ through some mutual friends and about 3 weeks ago I had two other people tell me to check out the "Pussy" video. I did, I was digging it but never got around to posting for some reason. About 4 days ago my boy James (who introduced us) showed me her track "D.R.U.G.S.", then a video dropped for it. Before I could check it out it ended up on PerezHilton.com and everyone was talking about her. People were hitting me up asking why I hadn't posted this video. So because the streets are talking, it's up to me to listen and share with you all. Enjoy. Iggy, we need that interview soon though.
I've been seeing Genasis perform this song and the track getting spins on the radio for almost a year now (maybe a little over). Now that he signed a deal with 50 Cent it looks like it finally got the visual treatment. An official video with 50 Cent influenced product placement and an appearance from Dorrough. Check it out.
My brothers Basik and Reese One get together for old times sake to drop a new track for the masses. They're both Virgos so it's only right they celebrate on a track together. As you know, Basik has been on his Black Scale and Forecast.TV move and Reese has been making noise with Troublemaker as King Fantastic...BUT they're back together on this one and the chemistry is STILL there. Now all I need is a whole project from them.

Ummmmmmm..you'll just have to watch this one...
This film crew makes dope videos...I first discovered them when I saw the video they did for The Weeknd's track "The Morning". I thought I posted it but I didn't, but we'll get to that later. For now peep this video they did for a favorite off of Frank Ocean's nostalgia/ultra project.
We catch up with Aloe to talk about musical influence, where his fashion sense came from, and what he’d do with a dolla!
Multiple folks have been in my ear as to why I haven't posted this yet, and it's because the streets are talking about this project in a very positive light. So let's all get familiar with this and download then spread the word. Ladies and gentlemen...Chevy Jones.
Some nice fashion to purchase with net profits going to benefit those who have been affected by breast cancer. If you know someone that has encourage them to share their story here. T.I.T.S. is looking to double the money raised last year to distribute to those who share these stories. If you want to help raise money make sure to head over to the site and buy some gear.

I've put you guys on to Woody awhile back, well he sent me a new album some days ago...peep the details below then download and share:
Woody & AtkboyEnt are set to release Chrysalis the album. This is Woody's 2nd full length release. After releasing LoveLife, he set out on this journey to evolve and grow, with the goal of releasing music that has new sounds, new genres, and new moods. Chrysalis is the state Butterfly's are cocooned in, before they break-out, and essentially evolve into adult Butterfly's that can spread their wings and fly. Chrysalis was entirely produced, mixed, mastered and written by @woodysproduce, with minor assistance from Yung Nate on a song or two. Album and Single artwork, exclusively designed by Woody. All recordings were done at the Penthouse Recording Studio, in Los Angeles, CA. Be sure to visit chrysalis.atkboyent.com for everything Chrysalis.

Surf Club has been making noise as you know. We've seen music from Chase N. Cashe and Kent Money make its way onto the site, and we've all seen how busy that Hit-Boy has been since getting his GOOD Music deal. Well the Queen of the Surf Club family has dropped a new EP and it's being well received. Check it out and make sure to tell a friend.
Interesting visual twist for a popular song off of The Weeknd's House of Balloons project. All the 80's babies should know where the video clip comes from...it's very appropriate. Enjoy.
