Atmosphere / Brother Ali / Reef the Lost Cauze freestyle

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , on Sunday, August 9, 2009 by Nolan Levenson

So I had the pleasure of seeing Atmosphere oustide the TC at a show in Philadelphia in May on the “When God Give You Ugly Tour” with Brother Ali opening. At the end of the show they brought out Reef the Lost Cauze to freestyle over the “Smart Went Crazy” beat. Reef absolutely killed it and I’m happy I found this video, dropping tons of sweet Philly references (including Wawa!). Unfortunately the sound qualiy isn’t great, but it’s still enjoyable.

Grouch, Eligh & Slug Make That Shit Go “!BOOM!”

Here is the newest video from Grouch & Eligh for the track “!BOOM!” off of their latest effort Say G&E. The track is dope as hell, and it features Atmosphere frontman Sean Daley. From what I have heard of Say G&E, it is definitely a good outing by Grouch & Eligh with some great West Coast flavor. If you haven’t check out the album yet, make sure you do.

Slug & Ant have decided to release another Free EP for you guys. The new EP, Leak At Will, is seven tracks long and is being put out to celebrate the new Fifth Element Online Store. All you have to do is add the EP to your cart for $0.00, check out and download the shit. Lets all hope that this one is as good as Strictly Leakage was (Leakage was better than When Life Gives You Lemons…). It’s good to see that Slug & Ant are back at it again having fun the only way that they know how, by dropping dope music. Follow me after the jump for tracklisting and download link.

Wildstyle Wednesday Review: Brother Ali, Shadows On The Sun

Posted in Music Reviews, Wildstyle Wednesdays with tags , , , , on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Shadows_on_the_SunRhymesayers has been a stamp in Midwest Hip-Hop for as long as I remember. They also have their fair share of classics, but I’m almost positive that Brother Ali’s Shadows On The Sun is still the best album from their catalog to date. Brother Ali leaves the microphone murderously massacred on every single track on this album, and Ant’s production is nothing short of superbly stellar. I am a fan of everything that Ali has put out, but I really don’t think that any other album stands up to this one. There are so many different feels on this album, one track Ali will be spitting furiously, and the next track he’ll be having fun. If this album makes one thing clear, it’s that Brother Ali loves Hip-Hop, and Hip-Hop loves Brother Ali. Continue reading

Illogic Has Diabolic Fun With Slug, Aesop & Zerostar

Posted in Downloads, Media with tags , , , , , on Tuesday, April 14, 2009 by Tim Althaus

illogic03 Hearing this track takes me back to the “Hold Mine” days. There is nothing like hearing Illogic, Aesop Rock & Slug together again. As the homie Shake said over at 2Dopeboyz, it would be incredible for Blueprint and Eyedea to jump on the wagon for an Orphanage reunion. This track is pretty much lights out on every verse. Zerostar is an emcee from Ohio who is an artist on Weightless Recordings. He spits a raw verse, and I wouldn’t be suprised to be hearing big things from him in the future.

Make sure you go out an get Illogic’s new album Diabolical Fun which is out now via Weightless.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Here is the new video for the song “Your Glasshouse” off of Atmosphere’s latest effort When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold. I am happy to see that Slug & Ant are keeping the campaign going for the album that came out last year. This video has great cinematography and has an interesting theme to it (as most of the Atmosphere videos have as of late). Make sure you check out the video, and if you haven’t go out and cop When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold.
