Good News: New Prof: Ghost feat. Tech N9ne (Official Video)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on Friday, July 24, 2015 by Terry Scott Niebeling

New song from Prof off of his “Liability” album, set to be out soon on Rhymesayers Entertainment (Sept. 7th, 2015).  No one reads articles anymore, so just watch the fucking video.  Of course I wouldn’t post content unless I thought it was impressive; Prof’s rhyme is developing immensely, plus he brings it home with his soulful voice, and Tech N9ne is involved.  Yes, you must listen.  You can form your own opinion about it, but mine is positive; this has me excited and it sounds honed.  Good news: New Prof.

Step Brothers (Evidence x Alchemist) Will Release Lord Steppington in 2013

Posted in Album Update, Video with tags , , , , on Friday, January 4, 2013 by Tim Althaus

First off, let me say that I can’t believe I’m writing this post; this project had almost reached Detox status for me.I realize that both of these dudes have been extremely busy over the last couple of years, but damn…

I feel as though all of my Hip-Hop prayers have been answered. I just peeped this video the other day on Ev’s twitter, and it got my super excited. I’ve been waiting for an Evidence and Alchemist full-length since they mentioned their Step Brothers project back in 2009. What makes this project even more special? It’s being released through Rhymesayers Entertainment – talk about dope. There are a few assumptions that I can make about Lord Steppington: First, the beats are going to be raw;  the equivalent of having your skin scraped off after a fall on the pavement. Second, the album is going to be chocked full of humor; we all know that Evidence and Alchemist are hilarious dudes.

Here’s a little taste of what to expect:

Local Love: P.O.S.-Fuck Your Stuff

Posted in Life Perspectives from T.S. Niebeling, Local Love, News with tags , , , , , , , , on Saturday, September 22, 2012 by Terry Scott Niebeling

Oh my god, everyone is talking about P.O.S. nowadays in Minneapolis.  I have to say something…

I thought he died, just kidding, I have been reading.  Got to know what’s up on the Minneapolis Scene.  Citypages did a spot on him a bit back, a girl I work with talks about him a bunch, knows Stefon Alexander personally, literally.  Truth.

So, all this talk made me a little anxious.  I mean why wait so long to put out more music?  Oh yeah, quality control, excellente…

Last night, while getting incredibly drunk with the boys in our new house in SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS, Hammer (AKA) pulled out his fancy schmancy computer keyboard hooked up to the plasma in the living room to Youtube and bumped  the above video from P.O.S.- Fuck Your Stuff.

Firstly, I had not heard a single song off of the new album,

We Don’t Even Live Here

yet, so I had no idea what to expect.  I had been hearing some stuff, Coworker was talking a lot about how she had been listening to the CD a lot and was told not to hum the songs, even for a second, to avoid leaking anything.  She said its amazing.

Secondly, I was impressed with the music and the video itself.  I was kind of surprised; like, P.O.S. with a more matured and hardcore sound, keeping it real while being progressive, and sticking to his basic punk roots just happened in front of me.  This song literally just happened and it was good.  (I had to do a run on sentence to describe that, I know seems esoteric, but music is that way.)  Rhyming on this song is pretty great; creative, controlled, P.O.S. is vocally amazing and intimidating.

I feel I can bump this on a decent system and it will bang.  In this song P.O.S. is telling people what they want to hear, what he wants to say, and still remaining underground with the quality sound of mainstream hip hop, with actual quality.  Production value sounds amazing on this song, the beat is unique, full, and boom-stuff.  I am excited to hear more.  I have been a P.O.S. fan for some time and have been looking forward to his fourth coming release.

This video is such a teaser-

P.O.S.’s new sound is just that new, incredibly vocally driven, with wit to it.  I enjoy this song and can almost rest easy with the idea that this album will be sick.  Whatever, I want to hear it.  Send me a copy early please.

The release date is:

October 23, 2012

What Fuck Your Stuff does for me is reestablish my Love for Local Music, what P.O.S. has done, has made me want to buy his new material, as so many artist have not done recently.  I have faith in Minneapolis, with a bunch of solid music coming out of here as of late.  2012 looks to be a good year for music in the Midwest, and especially a good year for Rhymesayers Entertainment.

Listen up!

Album Update: P.O.S., We Don’t Even Live Here

Posted in Album Update, Media, Video with tags , , , , , , , , on Thursday, August 16, 2012 by Tim Althaus

Good music keeps oozing from the pores of the Hip-Hop Heavyweights over at Rhymesayers Entertainment. Aesop Rock just released another stellar album last month; Brother Ali is releasing his new album in September, and now it has been announced that P.O.S. will release his fourth studio album – We Don’t Even Live Here – on October 23rd.

According to the press release I read, We Don’t Even Live Here will favor more futuristic beats influenced by the Euro club scene. Even though P.O.S. is going to keep his Hip-Hop roots grounded by collaborating with regular names like Cecil Otter, Lazerbeak, Mike Mictlan and Sims, We Don’t Even Live Here will feature beats from artists like Boyz Noise & Housemeister – DJs who make dance-oriented music. Fans can also expect to hear Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) lending his vocals to the album.

This will be Stef’s first album since he released the masterpiece Never Better back in 2009; three years is a long wait, so I’m definitely stoked to hear some new solo material is coming out. I’ve been a huge fan of everything he’s done so far, and I think that his strategy to shake things up could pay off big dividends.

Recently, Stef performed a live version of the lead single from We Don’t Even Live Here – “Bumper” – for Pitchfork City of Music, and if it’s any indication of what the album’s going to sound like, then listeners are in for a very interesting and intense ride. I know I can’t wait to buy my ticket.

“Stop The Press”… Brother Ali is Back!

Posted in Audio, Media, News with tags , , , , on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 by Tim Althaus

It appears as though Brother Ali is back folks. You may recall that he dropped a free EP earlier this year called The Bite Marked Heart, and on August 21st, the Good Brother will be releasing his latest full length album Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color. The effort will be produced entirely by Seattle beat smith Jake One; I’ve been a huge fan of everything that these guys have done together, and I can’t wait to hear what they’ve cooked up on this project. This is Ali’s first full length album since Us back in 2009.

“Stop The Press” is the lead single off of Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color, and at first I wasn’t to keen on the track, but it is definitely growing on me after a few listens. Jake’s silky smooth beat provides the perfect canvas for Brother Ali to inform the people about what he’s been up to since his last major release. A lot of fans might be slightly apprehensive because Ant isn’t producing the entirety of the album like he has in the past, but I can assure you that this album is going to be special; Brother Ali and Jake One have a great deal of chemistry, and it’s going to shine through on this album.

Album Download: Brother Ali, The Bite Marked Heart EP

That’s right, Mr. Ali is back with a free EP for the masses; The Bite Marked Heart is a new 7 track EP of all original material. I’m particularly stoked about this one because Brother Ali does the majority of his work on this project with Jake One; of course, Ali did a couple tracks with ANT as well. If you remember Jake One’s album White Van Music, then you know that he works very well with Ali. Upon seeing the tracklisting, I instantly became fixated on track number three; hearing Brother Ali and Phonte on the same track is like a dream come true.

After my first listen of The Bite Marked Heart, I can definitely say that it’s worth the free download, and it’s an overall great project. Brother Ali doesn’t know what the definition of sub-par is; well, he might, but I’m guessing we will never see evidence of it. Make sure you click that button and grab some of the best (free) quality Hip-Hop you can find, courtesy of Rhymesayers Entertainment.
