I believe this dropped a few days ago but fuck it… it’s fitting as I’m currently in NY right? Queens squares off with Brooklyn as the recent dopehouse resident (K. Sparks) takes on the Jay-Z clone (Angelous).

Very few artists rep their spot, like Laz does Brooklyn. And with that said… here are two BK-filled joints. Up first is the latest leak from Cookin’ Soul & NahRight‘s upcoming project, 1:00 & Rising (check the tracklist after the jump), which drops on July 14th. I also included another new Laz joint, produced by Chrystal Beats.
The Brown Bag AllStars continue to release (2)dope music by way of the Brown Bag Season series. This time Soul Khan, Koncept & J57 rip over a marink produced cut. Shouts to DeeJay Element on the cuts.
Episode 3 comes live from BK at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival After Party @ Southpaw. Featuring footage of Milk Dee, Pharoahe Monch, Steele & Boogie Blind.
Over the next 6 months, eternia will release steady video & audio leaks leading up to the highly anticipated release of eternia & MoSS’s debut album, At Last. Follow them as they shop for a record deal, promote the album, and countdown to the release date. And you just never know what special guests may pop up… stay tuned!
Just got back from watching the game and talk about a blow out haha. Did the the Magic even remember they had a game tonight? Anyways… the clip above has S-K-Y-Z-O-O showcasing his freestyle skills over some Premo & Alchemist beats.
Could there be a more fitting record — than a track called Broke As Fuck — that Sean Price could be featured on? And that’s not even the best part; the clean version (which you can download here w/ the instrumental) is called Broke As Ruck. Haha… classic. A BK x TO connection!
Some footage of the homie 8thW1 performing during the Show & Prove show at Public Assembly in Brooklyn last Thursday. Check the new song, Shot & Sweet, above and The Pressure & Sugar after the jump…
Before I ignore the internets for a bit — to wrap up a few projects — here’s a fresh leak (that I premiered at the plantation) off the upcoming Welcome to Bucktown OST, presented by Steele (of Smif-N-Wessun). A project that features Brooklyn emcees; Stimuli, Boot Camp Clik, Shabaam Sahdeeq, UG (of the Cella Dwellas), Blahzah Blahzah, Smoothe Da Hustler & Trigger the Gambler. A list of artists that Steele said…
…fit the cast so to speak; who could carry that 70′s energy naturally through their personal contributions. I carefully picked out each track and then I wrote down whom I would like featured on that particular song. Everyone who is featured on this soundtrack did so out of love and respect, which we all share for each other and is what this project is about…our love and supreme respect for the game and what we bring to it. I salute each and everyone who participated.
Production comes from the likes of Da Beatmierz (of Black Moon), DJ Revolution, Ayatollah, 7VEN H.D., Che Triumph, Sic Beats, J. Scrilla, Kevorkian & Suaze. Look for Welcome to Bucktown to drop May 5th. Hit the jump for the artwork and tracklist…
