Prof & St. Paul Slim Bring You Some Recession Music

Posted in Downloads, Media, Video with tags , , , on Tuesday, May 12, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Recession Music Front Cover Here is some more great music for the Mighty Minneapolis. This time it comes to us from Prof & St. Paul Slim. It just so happens that Ant is the executive producer of the album, so you know the production is going to be fire. These two emcees know how to elevate the skill on the mic and I think this album is going to end up being a great collaboration. I remember the first time I heard St. Paul Slim on Atmosphere’s track, off Strictly Leakage, “Crewed Up”. He had one line that went, “I’ma tell ya’ll I’m about to make a small fortune by taking small things and blowing em’ out of proportion”, from that line alone I knew that this guy was going to be sick as hell. The first time I heard of Prof was for his video for “Rocketman“. If I may add, the video for “Rocketman” is absolutely brilliant and Prof sure as hell know how to rock the mic as well.

I will have a review up for you guys real soon, because needless to say I am going to be listening to this album quite a bit the next few days. Make sure you download the album because it’s free!

Via Culture Bully, B96 recently had the the self-proclaimed “hottest thing cooking” in Minneapolis, Muja Messiah, in the studio and he displayed his incredible flow on air for the rest of the city to hear. They discuss a range of topics, from fake and stupid MCs to Muja’s own steadily rising career, and after a few minutes Muja freestyles over his own beat that he brought with him into the studio. Hit play and watch the video to see why this guy’s name never stops coming up in the local hip-hop conversation lately.

meetsflyerqp0While they’re hyping his show at Axis next week, I want to remind everyone about the awesome set that’s planned at Fine Line next week featuring sets of Atmosphere meets Brother Ali, Muja Messiah meets M.anifest, Toki Wright meets St. Paul Slim, and DJ Jimmy 2 Times meets DJ Plain Ole Bill. This is a local hip-hop event for the record books, and you should do everything in your power to make it to this show. Click the flier to read more!
