The eagle black panther has landed.
As this site has started, grown taken off and gained recognition, so have Shake and I. To be a part of this thing has been an incredible and humbling experience, and we both thank each person every day for helping the site become what it is now.
With that said, in the next two weeks (July 3rd) I will be relocating from the cozy confines of Los Angeles for the cozy confines of Rotten Apple, as I have been hired at a new gig out there. What does that mean for the site? It means that now there will be both an East Coast and West Coast connect. It also means a broader range of all things (2)dope. Most importantly, it means the start of something greater for both the site, Shake and myself. I’m equal parts nervous and excited, as this will be the first time I’ll be living outside of California, and it just so happens to be a place I’ve wanted to live for years.
Ain’t really much more to say, so we now return to your regulalry scheduled posting.
The man behind some of Cam’ron’s dopest tracks, 50 Cent’s Many Men, Hov’s Dopeman and more is readying the release of his own album, Person of Interest, dropping October 6th. And with the first leak; Digga gets a few of the nicest emcee’s in NY to lace a track.
Louis Logic performing his Spork Kills record, Black Widow, at Southpaw in Brooklyn, NYC a few days ago. Their Beaches Love Us EP is available now! Speaking of Louis… can someone hook me up with a download of Sin-O-Matic? I can’t find my copy anywhere!
I’ve been meaning to post this track all fucking week, but for some odd reason I would always forget. It just came on the Zune so I ran back in the house to post it haha. A Scarborough x Brooklyn connection!
…in 24 hours. All In A Day’s Work, coming soon!
No… this isn’t a diss song. It’s a real song. Promise joins Mickey on Kanye’s Say U Will and pens a letter to his pal Drake. Big shouts to Tanya for lacing me with this nice little exclusive. I must say it’s good to be NMC. Sorry Josh (not really). Speaking of Drake… he just revealed some info to MuchMusic about Lil Wayne’s upcoming rock album in which he’s featured on.
Loud catches up with Eternia. A Canadian emcee resting in NYC; she’s done some work with M-Phazes, Torae, Joell Ortiz, Reef the Lost Cauze, Apathy and plenty more. She gets down on the mic for sure (as you’ll see in the videos). She also talks about touring the world, pushing her new t-shirts, issues females face in hip hop and info on her upcoming projects. Part 2 after the jump…
Shake’s posting while he’s on a plane to T-Dot? Ha.. scheduled posting is the shit. As promised, here’s another new joint from the homie Al Be Back featuring CurT@!n$. Up next… the Fabolous assisted cut. Let’s get it!
Artwork + Download link after the jump…
Considering I’m hopping on a plane to T-Dot in about 7 hours it’s only right I get some Canadian heat up on 2dope right? Here’s a new joint off producer/emcee Solitair off his upcoming album, The Departure, which drops in 09. Shouts to SirmacTV! Speaking of Era… I’ll most likely link up with dude while I’m up north so expect some exclusives!
The homie Al Be shot me the touching All For One last night and it’s extremely dope. I advice you to not sleep on this! With the email he said there will be tracks featuring Fabolous and CurT@!n$ coming in the future. I’ll be dropping the CurT@!n$ joint Monday most likely with the Fabolous cut following shortly after. Enjoy!
