Something to look forward to from Oddisee really soon. For now, check out the single from his upcoming and free mixtape.

What I'm Watching: NOM - "The Christening"

Iowa's NOM has just released his debut project, Lucid. The project features production from Jharee (of nuLOVE), Weirddough, and others, and boasts appearances from Wally Left, Boycott (of nuLOVE), and Calliko. The project is a spiritual journey in audio form, with NOM's conscious content sounding perfect over the soulful, mellow production.

MacGuyver - "The Come Up" ft. Born I Music (prod. By Grussle)


MacGuyver drops his new single for ImMaculate and features another ill emcee in Born I. Assisted with the dope, dope production of Grussle, these two emcees go off ensuring that my repeat button gets worn out. If this track is any indication to what "ImMaculate" is going to be, sign me up right now. Check it.

DMV Rapper/Singer MacGuyver approaches the fall season with a haunting, powerful new record "The Come Up", featuring G&D label mate Born I Music. Produced by Grussle of Inner Loop Music Group, "The Come Up" finds MacGuyver waxing poetic on the mixture of blood sweat and strategy needed for success in an ever hostile, ever crowded hip hop environment, as well as on the streets of his home, the DMV. Born I Music rounds the record out with his reflection of the costs of being a boss in the modern era, and the inner turmoil that comes with high-end hustling. With hard drums and keys that will loop in your head over and over courtesy of top notch production from Inner Loop's Grussle, "The Come Up" harkens the coming of cold weather, timberland boots and hoodies, as MacGuyver provides the perfect hustler's anthem, which also happens to double as the lead single for his upcoming album "ImMaculate"

RUSTY P'S - "Frequency" (ft. Evan Christian)


This joint here....this joint right here...woooooooo! Dangerous. That break your neck, jump on the dance floor, do a headspin, wild the hell out kinda music from Milwaukee's own Rusty P's and Evan. The energy that I get off this track is extremely considerable and the cuts you hear just adds to that as well. Overall, "Frequency" so Hip-Hop and it'll be on repeat for a while. Peep it.

RoQ'y TyRaiD - MAD! (prod. by Fons Infinite)


RoQ'y comes through with another mind awakening, thought provoking, passionate joint that makes you want to jump out your seat and make some damn changes. Word up. Fons Infinite hooked him up with perfectly matched production to go with the intricate and expressive lyrics RoQ'y spits. Check out what the homie gotta say about his latest and hit play after.

This is about turning social network-based political commentary into action. You don't have to get in the middle of a damn crowd and hold a picket sign, no disrespect, but you don't have to wear a hoodie. All you have to do is be aware and remove political complacency from your life. Sometimes it takes a ballot, sometimes it takes a donation or two, whether it be money or time, sometimes it DOES take sparking conversation with peers and those within political bodies. But you have to get motivated to do SOMETHING, literally ANYTHING, at this point. Life is bigger than Love & Hip-Hop or which rapper is calling out the next. Those things are entertaining but when it's all said and done, you have yourself, your family, and your own freedom. Aren't you tired of things such as the Syria lies?? You are?? GET MAD!!! We CAN be a responsible society, youth!

What I'm Watching: Oddisee - "After Thoughts"


Zone out music. Oddisee never disappoints.

Oddisee - The Beauty In All. Directed by GrĂ©goire Marty
Take a kaleidoscopic journey through the memories that float in our mind's eye in this new video from Oddisee. The song "After Thoughts" is a haunting and wistful instrumental that reminisces through an assortment of days in dreamlike fashion. After Thoughts is from Oddisee's upcoming instrumental project (his first since Rock Creek Park) titled "The Beauty In All".
About "The Beauty In All."

"The Beauty In All is about the flaws & mistakes that give life its character and worth - how even ignorance can give light to knowledge. For me, not knowing how to do something & still trying is a process that helped my production style evolve. If everything we are is out in perfect tutorials, we might never deviate from the teacher. This record is dedicated to imperfection and the sense of pride & accomplishment we get from our struggles. Hopefully, you listen to this record, reflect on the ups & downs of life, and see the beauty in all."

Photo by Vincent James Vredenberg

Keno comes through with another soulful, content equipped album titled "the1derful" that seems to have me hitting repeat a few times. The positive of having only 8 tracks is that you feel you didn't get enough. Combine that with Keno's ability as an emcee and you got a pretty dope and coincidentally titled album indeed. For only $3 minimum, you get to experience the same. Peep it.
