Mixtape Download: Saigon, Warning Shots 3: One Foot in the Grave

Posted in Album Download, Downloads with tags , , , on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 by Tim Althaus

The Yardfather is back, and he’s using his built up momentum from last year’s spectacular outing The Greatest Story Never Told. Yesterday Sai-Giddy dropped his long awaited street album Warning Shots 3: One Foot in the Grave. I can honestly say that this mixtape is bananas; all of the beats are straight fire, and Saigon spits that hardcore street flow that you’ve become used to hearing. Production comes courtesy of Just Blaze, DJ Corbett, Shuko, Red Spyda and Scram Jones. You can also expect to hear guest appearances from Jump-Off Joe Beezy, Lil’ Fame and Quan.

The Greatest Story Never Told was one of best year’s last albums, and it sounds like Saigon is going to keep bringing top quality material for the Hip-Hop lover’s ears. I personally can’t wait until Sai drops his next studio offering; he could quickly become one of the best emcees of this generation.

Ghostface Discusses Fishscale

I really wish my man Ryan was still around, because he would absolutely love this video. In this video Ghost breaks down what is probably his most critically acclaimed album, Fishscale. In the video he says that he went into this album having doubts about being able to write not smoking weed. He also mentions how he switched up the production on Fishscale to a more “underground feel” which included Pete Rock, DOOM, J Dilla & Just Blaze. I love hearing Ghost talk about Dilla & the “Whip You With a Strap” beat. He said he heard it and he felt as though he had to conquer it right away, and for him to lay down special meaning with his mom is some real ass shit.

Here is some nice footage of Little Brother & Just Blaze rocking shit in Chicago at the recent Red Bull Big Tune Beat Battle. Little Brother is one of my favorite groups in Hip-Hop, and Just Blaze is one of the most fire producers in the game. You shouldn’t sleep on this one guys. I totally wish I could have been at this shit. Notice how Just Blaze gets everyone ready by playing some of his insane beats.

Two Jay Electronica updates in the last two days? I feel like the lord is looking down on me with a big smile on his face. Just Blaze spoke a few choice words to iHipHop about Jay Electronica and what’s been going down as of late. It sounds like these guys have been putting down some serious shit as of late. Just Blaze talks about Exhibit A, as well as the video trailer that they just put out. I got really excited when Blaze said that he is going to dedicate time to get “the record” done as soon as possible. I keep saying this all the time, Jay Electronica’s full length is going to change the entire game. Just Blaze is arguably one of the best producers in the game, and you throw Jay’s revolutionary lyrics/flow over Blaze Beats… game over.

Jay Electronica Brings You the “Dear Moleskine” Trailer

Posted in Media, Video with tags , on Monday, July 27, 2009 by Tim Althaus

This video is by far the definition of epic (thank you 2DopeBoyz). Jay Electronica released the trailer to his newest track which is produced by Just Blaze. The first minute and thirty seconds is strictly beautiful instrumentals by Just Blaze, and then Jay goes in real hard with some nice rhymes. I have been waiting on a full length from Jay since the minute I heard him, I am still on the edge of my seat every time I hear a new track. I can assure you that when the full length comes out it will be up at Mind Inversion.

Skyzoo salvation

I’ve been waiting on this guys’ solo album for what seems like an ice age. Skyzoo recently dropped the artwork and tracklisting for his new album The Salvation. It looks like this album is going to be a defining opus with some of the best production we’ve heard in some time (Just Blaze, 9th Wonder, Black Milk, Illmind & Nottz to name a few). Skyzoo is a real emcee, and I can guarantee with the producers he has on board this album will not fall short of greatness. You can pick up this heat rock on September 29th. Meanwhile you can follow me after the jump for the tracklisting.

Jay Electronica & Just Blaze In the Studio

Posted in Media, Video with tags , on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Yet again, my day keeps getting better. I spotted this video of Just Blaze & Jay Electronica in the studio at 2DopeBoyz. I don’t really think I need to say much about this post. Just Blaze is cooking up a beat that sounds like it’s rated at 3,000 degrees celcius, and Jay is just jamming out while spitting some rhymes.
