THA DOGG POUND “CRAZY N THA CLUB”
New banger from one of the most slept on duo’s in the game and bar none one of the most slept on MC’s, in Kurupt. While they have been around for awhile now they still remain relevant and this song knocks PERIOD. And to make things even better the song world premiered on angelayee.mystagingwebsite.com and shade 45!
CAPONE-N-NOREAGA “THE RESERVES” FT. RAEKWON
Capone and Nore get the nice assist from The Chef on the hook with this banga produced by Seattle, WA’s The Bizness! CNN sound hungry and invigorated on this one as their anticipated new album will be coming soon
PAC DIV “ROLLIN”
These guys may not have been included as XXL Freshmen to watch out for but that doesn’t mean they aren’t fresh. This is a feel good summer record expertly crafted—beat, hook, and lyrics. A group to keep an eye on for sure in my humble opinion.
CYPRESS HILL “CARRY ME AWAY” FT. MIKE SHINODA
The Cypress crew come through with another banger from their 4/20 release (my birthday no less!!!). A perfect balance of rock melody and influence courtesy of Linkin Park’s Shinoda, with a solid hip hop foundation so it doesn’t sound contrived or forced. Go support Cypress and 4/20!!!
REFLECTION ETERNAL “STRANGERS” FT. BUN B
Hi-Tek brings the horns while Talib and Bun trade catchy punchlines and slick wordplay on this bouncy joint. Definitely building anticipation for their new Revolutions Per Minute album due next month!
