New Underachievers dropped on the 19th! This 15 track offering entitled Renaissance includes a few of my favs like Cobra Clucth ....I'm just getting into it but I love the fact that these guys stay so consistent and really don't go long without dropping some sort of heat, whether it's a freestyle or something, they keep it coming! Check it out Now on Spotify

Joey Bada$$ - For My People

Been bumpin this "For My People" on repeat lately...had to add it to one of my playlists on Spotify (you should too). "This for my people, tryna stay alive and just stay peaceful, So hard to survive a world so lethal, Who will take a stand and be our hero" - Joey Bada$$

DMV (The Documentary)

Browse over to dmvlife.com and peep this documentary that showcases the best of Washington, D.C, Maryland, Virginia and the evolution of music therein~ "The 25-minute project identifies the legacy of the go-go genre and its lasting impact on the local urban music scene, namely its use of live bands, unyielding work ethic, and its preference for soulful and uplifting beats paired with heartfelt lyricism. Through interviews with the rising artists and figures in the local industry, 'DMV' draws parallels between seemingly disconnected movements, highlighting the importance of collaboration in order to once and for all put DC, Maryland and Virginia on the map."

Cnoteshce - What To Call Ya (Official Video)

Reminiscent on the past while trailblazing through the moment and fast fwd to the future, Cnoteshce drops heat on this undeniably hard reflective banger and simply well stated industry driven retrospect type release. Mixed with innuendos of nostalgia and brief glimpses into the life and times of Noble Cnoteshce on his independent grind, this track is all about acknowledging the fact that it takes hard work and most of the time, many dedicated (never give up) years of entrepreneurship for an artist to really become successful independently.... Sometimes people don't like to see you still going for your dreams when they gave up on theirs.....and he don't know... What To Call Ya! Enjoy~ (directed by J Angel Visuals)
 

Gensu Dean & Wise Intelligent - Amen

From the forthcoming album Game Of Death (releases 6/2/17), Get this free download now! Amen~
"Rooted in Universal Science, the album takes dead aim at mediocre, dumbed down, manufactured rap while treating Music as the weapon it is.  This is cultural warfare bridging the gap from Roxanne & Biz Markie to Jay Electronica & Erykah Badu.  Bending time & space, Gensu Dean & Wise Intelligent take listeners through history with amazingly wide-eyed clarity. With statements as straight-forward as “Your shit aint Hiphop if it’s corporate” there is no missing the message of self-determination.  This is the type of liberation that starts with your mind and is more about what you shed than what you add on. Somebody say Amen".
 

Doozy ft Vee Tha Rula - My Homies

I can honestly say both Doozy and Vee held their own on this one, they both snapped while holding no punches...Turn this up and be sure to watch in 4K! My Homies ~ Enjoy!



Travel Gang - Mind's Eye Official Video

From the forthcoming Travel Gang EP, Cnoteshce, Mr Malcolm & Darae LaTour go all in on what really matters in the media vs the reality of the Mind's Eye (Directed by J Angel Visuals). This one is for the people and the day to day struggle! Enjoy ~
