As I give my creaking knuckles calisthenics, I’m reminded of how great 2013 was for music. There were a lot of great releases, and I think that a few of my selections might shock a few people this year, but it’s necessary to give credit where it’s due. Leave your comments in the C-Section below, and let me know how you feel.

Album Download: Chad Hatcher, Bridges EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on Thursday, February 16, 2012 by Tim Althaus

I was really glad to see that Chad dropped this the other day. For those of you who don’t know, Chad Hatcher is an amazing singer/songwriter from Nova Scotia; he’s done a lot of work with Classified, and he’s been on his grind for a long time. In 2008, Chad released the stellar solo debut Tunnels and Pathways. This year Chad has been putting in some serious work; he released a cover of the Foster the People song “Pumped Up Kicks”, and he also covered the legendary Pharcyde song “Passin’ Me By”.

The Bridges EP is a great effort from Chad, and it’s great material whether you are a long time fan or a first time listener. For the reasonable price of free99, I think the burden is on the listener to click the button and download the album.

Video: Classified (Feat. Joe Budden), “Unusual”

What a great thing to come home to after a long ass day at work. Classified released the visuals for his latest single “Unusual” which was on last year’s Handshakes & Middle Fingers; the cut features Jump-Off Joe Beezy and a brain bruising beat complete with a perfectly utilized sample. “Unusual” is one of my favorite cuts off one of my favorite albums of 2011. I’ve said it time and time again, but Classified is one of the most consistent guys in Hip-Hop over the last 5 years; everything this guy does is well above average, and I feel like he’s going to keep making noise for the Canadian scene. If you haven’t, I highly suggest you go out and cop Handshakes & Middlefingers… yesterday.
