In the above video you can catch Cymarshall Law tearing apart the Hip-Hop Kemp Festival in the Czech Republic. In the video you get a nice little cameo from Devin the Dude in the beginning as Cymar is breaking down the situation. Another surprise gem is getting to watch a little footage of Blu & Exile performing together, which I’m sure is an incredible experience. At the end of the video you get to see Cymar rocking hard on the stage. Follow me after the jump to hear Cymar ride over RZA’s “New Wu” beat. (It’s super dope) Continue reading

Here is Cymar’s take on the Brothers Thornton track “Kind of a Big Deal”. To be honest, I like this version more than the one that Clipse put out. Cymar is one of the dopest fire spitters that I’ve heard in quite some time. If you sleep on this guy you should be ashamed of yourself. You can also go over to MTVU.com and vote for Cymar’s video “King With 4 Wives” for the Best Freshmen Contest.

This is Cymarshall Law’s take on Jay-Z’s “Run This Town”, and boy does this shit go hard. If you haven’t listened to me talk about this guy before I don’t know if there is any hope left for you. He just leaves microphones destroyed and demolished everywhere in his path. Make sure you check this one out, I think you might even like it more than that Jay-Z version. I forgot to mention, the 2DopeBoyz article also confirmed that Cy has two projects (The Creator’s Kid EP & Everliven Sound) that are complete and will be coming out this fall. You know what that means people, more Cymarshall Law & Mr. Joeker.

I can’t even believe I forgot about this one. I saw this video at 2DopeBoyz a while back and totally planned on posting it. This dope ass video is for the track “King With 4 Wives”, and it’s from Cymarshall Law & Mr. Joeker’s album Hip-Hop In The Soul. As I mentioned in the Hip-Hop In The Soul review, these guys are one hell of a duo. The video concept for this track is great, and it plays out just the way you would expect with Cy’s storytelling abilities. Definitely a great video worth checking out.

This is a dope video, and it illustrates how dope of an emcee Cymarshall Law really is. This guy can freestyle like fucking crazy and he’s damn good at it. He also performs a verse off of the track “Sticks & Stones” off of his LP with Mr. Joeker, Hip-Hop in the Soul. If you haven’t gotten Cymar’s album with Mr. Joeker, SHAME ON YOU!

Album Review: Pacewon & Mr. Green, The Only Color That Matters Is Green

Posted in Music Reviews with tags , , , , , on Saturday, May 30, 2009 by Tim Althaus

only greenAs I mentioned in the Cymarshall Law & Mr. Joeker review, I always seem to be sleeping on shit from the previous year and more often than not it catches up with me. Enter Pacewon & Mr. Green‘s The Only Color That Matters is Green. I remember hearing about this album more than once last year, and every time it was a positive note. This album is the definition of easy listening, because it takes little to no effort to enjoy. Mr. Green’s production is more than exemplary and Pacewon compliments just about every single beat on this album perfectly. Pacewon is a great emcee without spitting overly technical punchlines and metaphors, although he does have some catchy ass lines. These two compliment each other perfectly (Guru & Premier-esque?), and I hope to hear a lot more material from them. Continue reading

Cymarshall Law & Elzhi Are on a “Bullet Train”

Posted in Downloads with tags , , , on Monday, March 23, 2009 by Tim Althaus

cymar-law This gem has been sitting in my inbox for a few days because I haven’t had the time to get it on the blog because of school issues. I am glad that I finally have time to get this up because it features two of the illest emcees in the game right now. “Bullet Train” is a track by Cymarshall Law, and it features the always flame throwing Elzhi and the female emcee Masia One.

If you haven’t heard of Elzhi or Cymarshall Law you really need to do yourself a favor and jump on the bandwagon. They put out two of the best albums of last year with no question and they have some of the best flow and rhymes that you will ever here. It seems like they are both able to make any beat they are given and make it their home.  Elzhi really kills the beat, “I steamroll your team whole/get your whole dream stole/then take my supreme role as an extreme goal/I been in my zone chattin’ on an iPhone with a chick twistin’ up trees like a cyclone”. Masia One and Cymarshall Law follow in the same line and kill this hard hitting synth beat. If you like good rhymes do yourself a favor and download this one, you will be very dissapointed if you don’t.

cymar1 I was very elated to see that I had a message in my inbox containing to mixtapes of Cymarshall Law. This guy is an absolute beast on the microphone and never fails to leave the microphone torn apart. As I had metioned before in a prior post, Cymar was a part of one of the best albums of last year Hip-Hop in the Soul with Mr. Joeker. I have been playing out that album like crazy lately and I am glad that I was able to get some more of his material in my hands. This guy is definitely one of the most official emcees I’ve heard in a while. When you put a dope ass beat behind this guy the result is uber insanity with great lyrical content.

It’s great to hear a guy like Cymar dropping more music and ultimately making himself more accessible to Hip-Hop heads. I think that if he can consistently drop this beat torching material, he is going to solidify his position in the game. I truly hope to hear a lot more from this guy in the near future, Hip-Hop in the Soul had a huge impact on me and I have a feeling that I am going to feel the same about anything else Cymar does.

Valentine’s Day Audio: Cymarshall Law – “Luve Story”

Posted in Audio, Downloads with tags , , , , , on Saturday, February 14, 2009 by Erik Burg

Cymarshall Law drops an exclusive track for Valentine’s day. What a nice guy. “Luve Story” is a beautiful song, and definitely a perfect treat for this day of love. The lyrics are maybe a little over-played and cheesy, but hey, if there is ever a day for such nonsense, today is that day. The track is a lot more soulful and smooth than anything on his album releases, which I really enjoy. “Luve Story” is the perfect track for those who couldn’t get into Cymarshall’s other material and a great gift on this day of celebration. Enjoy, and tell someone you love them!

Review: Cymarshall Law & Mr. Joeker, Hip-Hop in the Soul 

Posted in Music Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , on Friday, January 9, 2009 by Tim Althaus

hip-hop-in-the-soul-front I have to start this post off by saying that this is an album that I found out about way too late. If I would have listened to this album last year right away when it came out I can guarantee that it would have made my top 5 last year. The chemistry that is shown on this album is absolutely amazing, somewhat similar to a Guru/Premier (Gang Starr) or Pete Rock/C.L. Smooth. Putting these two together on an album was a god-send for the soul of Hip-Hop (no pun intended) because they really take things to a whole new level.

The first thing that I want to point out is that Mr. Joeker is a very talented producer (from Hungary), and I haven’t heard a producer that can mimic so many different styles of production. This guy can go from a DJ Premier sound into a style of his own in one track flat. To be honest the beats on this album are so hot, they may put the sun out of commission.

Cymarshall Law is an emcee that is in a league of his own, and he is from New Brunswick, New Jersey. One thing is for sure about Cymar, and that’s that this guy can rap his ass off and very well at that. Cymarshall Law is going to be a benchmark when it comes to great emcees in the future. With the mic skills that Cymar possesses, it’s only a matter of time before heads start to notice.

When I listen to an album the intro usually means a great deal to me, because in my opinion it should set the expectation for the rest of the album and the tempo as well. The intro on this album “Intro to the Soul” does just that setting the bar for the rest of the album with Cymarshall Law kicking an ill flow over a straight fire laced beat by Mr. Joeker. “The Takeoff (Getting It)” might be the highlight of the album with a beautiful backdrop full of strings, enchanting vocal samples and as usual Cymarshall’s razor blade sharp flow. Every track on this album is absolute quality, I don’t think that there was a better collaboration album last year to be honest, with guest appearances from KRS-One and Supastition it only adds to the ensuing chaos.

Please do yourself a favor and check out one of the best Hip-Hop releases of 2008, like I said I wish I would have heard this album earlier last year because it would have easily charted on my list.
