Ras Kass - The Endangered Lyricist Vol. 1 and 2

Gearing up for the release of the forthcoming A.D.I.D.A.S. (All Day I Dream About Spittin’) album produced by DJ Rhettmatic. Ras Kass posted two compilations to raise awareness of the legacy of John Austin . The new album was entirely funded by fans through donations to his site

The album is a limited edition CD & Vinyl so those who can grab a copy of either should do so as I'm sure the pairing of Ras Kass & DJ Rhettmatic will be collector's in the near future.

Now for those who don't know...realize and recognize the greatness of Ras Kass

Final Outlaw - Rice And Beans

The New York emcee Final Outlaw drops a monster tune with release of "Rice & Beans". The first single off his "Unstoppable Love" album. Featuring Brooklyn emcee Niles and produced by 19 year old Spainard Levenkhan with scratches by Germany's Chinch 33 this is as hard as it gets within Hip Hop. I haven't heard a tune this hard (or good) since 2004's "Lean Back". I expect good things from Final Outlaw in future.

Elevated Ruffians - Magnificent Soul

In 2009 the San Bernardino trio Magnificent Ruffians teamed up with Los Angeles based producers Elevated Soul to form Elevated Ruffians. The end result of their combined efforts is a double CD worth of good quality 9th Wonderish boom bap Hip Hop laced with a touch of a soulful groove.

Good news for Hip Hop fans they have recently released the album for free though the album is still for sale. A free double CD of music? In today's musical landscape this usually means a collection of throwaway tracks release for marketing. Not this time this is the real deal. This is Mag Ruff at their best. enjoy

Murs and 9th Wonder - Asian Girl

Here's another leak from the new Murs & 9th Wonder collabo Fornever. Being that the album was sold yesterday at the Paid Dues Festival (here in my hometown) the album should be hitting the net soon.

Now with this single Murs takes it back to a topic he always addresses....females. Similar to the classic Dark Skinned White Girls this song "Asian Girl" gives props to the females that are overshadowed in bit.
