14KT Nowa

I’ve been waiting for this since I initially heard about it, and I will give thanks to 2DopeBoyz as I have too many times in the past. 14KT is a producer out of the Lab Techs collective in Ann Arbor, Michigan. If you haven’t heard about this guy I really do feel sorry for you. The beats that this guy has put out are nothing short of amazing. This is an album that 14KT has had done since 2006, when J Dilla passed away. Making these “donuts” was his way of coping with Dilla’s passing. On another note, you can catch 14KT on tour with Buff1, Mayer Hawthorne & House Shoes starting September 5th. Follow me after the jump for the download link. Continue reading

Video: Buff1, “Dream Streets”

If any of you don’t know who Buff1 is, you better find out fast. Buff1 is from Ann Arbor, Michigan which is no big surprise, (Michigan is taking over the game), and in my opinion he’s one of the best emcees in the game right now(he’s also a part of The Athletic Mic League). This is a video for a track on his latest effort There’s Only One for the track “Dream Streets”. This video is very sentimental and has a real message to it, to be honest you don’t see to many music videos like this one. The video shows Buff doing volunteer work and feeding homeless people (I’m guessing either in Ann Arbor or Ypsilanti) for the better of the community. This is a great song and video from one of the strongest releases of last year.
