Hip-Hop In: The Netherlands (Stone)

Originating from Norway but now making waves in The Netherlands, Stone has been putting in work and getting cosigns from outlets like RTO Radio show. Stone released his latest track, "Dark Side" and is working on 4 new tracks with BB.

I've been meaning to spend head out to the Scandinavia and the Netherlands for years. My first clothing sponsorship was from a Norwegian company and I have a few contacts in the NE. I'm digging his delivery and production is on point. Check out the single below:

Layla Khepri "Bodak Yellow" remix

Don't let this weird-ass cover scare you away, viral sensation Layla Khepri MURDERED this remix. DAMN. Cardi B came up with a summer smash, whether you like the song or not you can't deny that's its getting spins. Layla got a hold of the instrumental and dooked on it.

Yeah she's pretty and sweet and can make an ill pop record, yeah yeah yeah...but don't for a SECOND forget she can out spit ANY of you.

Catch the wave.

Priority Records new artists, Young Giantz

I got a little behind in posting, and also mostly been receiving things that didn't fit for THIS site (aka stuff that I feel is dope vs just stuff that will get me clicks). I've always been a big west coast fan. So this 2nd generation project is pretty slick.

First track isn't a song and I was kind of in a hurry to finish a few things and almost turned it off (yes, it's real 'industry' people only give things like 10-30 seconds lol I'm behind on work and don't have time to mess around) but glad I waited it out because this is dope! Really enjoying this project.

West coast duo Young Giantz are the sons of rap pioneer Playa Hamm of the Penthouse Players Clique (who was signed by Eazy-E to Ruthless/Priority Records in 1992). Today, 25 years later, the South Central brothers Deuce Mac and Bigg Joe West are excited to release their own Priority Records EP, 2000 Ninetiez, a respectful tribute to the classic G Funk era of West Coast hip-hop. Recruiting producer Dae One (Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg), the guys also worked with G-Funk veterans DJ Battlecat and Jelly Roll.

Lásko - You Know [DEBUT]

I got an email from 17-year-old Lásko recently. He'd seen my post about Kyle (possibly my description on his song "Blame") but ANYWAY, it inspired him to contact me and I'm glad he did.

I remember being 17 and recording and just having FUN being creative! (before I learned first hand that I could make money with it which F'd things up lol). But he just released his debut single and I wanted to show some support. He writes with a pretty smooth maturity in his lyrics that makes you forget he's a teenager (not that 17-year olds haven't lived through some real shit, but I digress).

Anyway, we'd both appreciate your support on his Debut so por favor,listen to "You Know" below, download on amazon, and follow @imlasko on instagram.

Roy Woods - "Instinct" ft MADEINTYO

I first heard Roy Woods on my homegirl's snapchat a year or so ago. And I'd been hip to MADEINTYO of "Uber Everywhere" fame (pronounced 'Made in TOKYO' for this who don't know. TYO is Tokyo Narita airport code. I've had to correct some WILD mispronunciations for that lol).

But their new video is DOPE. Hella smooth song. Check it out below and download on Amazon and iTunes/Apple Music.

P. Muna "Game" MV

I first met Prosper (from MTV's "Are You the One" fame) at a bar in Hollywood when meeting with his PR to discuss a book deal. I edited and did the cover art for his book, "Game".

Soon after he released a song of the same name and I loved it. He just dropped the video for Game. Check it out and support the homie, Prosper.

Batman x King Ice Jewelry Collab

I've been a fan of King Ice for a while. They have some pretty ill chains but their [licensed] collabs are what stood out. Whether it's the Empire collection, collab with Snoop, and more they have been providing good quality jewelry for great prices. Enter the Dark Knight.

Inspired by one of the greatest DC super heroes of all time comes the Batman X KING ICE collaboration. Each piece come custom-made and molded using 3D printing technology, ensuring the Dark Knight comes in pristine condition. The collaboration aims to provide a new look for one of the most iconic super heroes, providing Batman his first streetwear look.

Each Batman piece uses either 14K Gold or White Gold plating to create its iconic look, meanwhile, each pendant uses AAA stones to create its urban look for men. Finishing off each piece is either a 2.5mm stainless steel Franco chain or a 1mm, .925 sterling silver box chain.

DeJ Loaf - "No Fear" MV

I was driving on the way to Mobile, AL to speak at a music conference during Alabama Hip-Hop Week (14 hour drive) and as I was crossing into AL I tuned into 92.9 BLX and heard this dope new song...I instantly Shazaam'd it...I was super surprised it was Dej Loaf. She's had some bangers, man. But this is my jam. It's a good feel good song.

So click play and feel good.

When I was in France I learned about a dope new Russian-based video platform called Ello. I know I'll get an angry whatsapp about this but think of it like Vevo but Russian. (Привет, Яна)

As you know I'm on a never-ending quest to find the world's illest hip-hop so this episode we make the digital-trek to Mother Russia. This is the new video for Russian MC, Rapchinno. I sadly only know like 4 words in Russian so I can't give an expert analysis on lyrical content but this is dope. Video is clean and oddly makes me want to get back in fighting shape.

Anwyway, check out "Hook" by Rapchinno.

Christian Kuya - "Feel Like"

I got this Christian Kuya track in my email a few days ago but I've been hearing about him for a minute (whattup, Capo). I didn't realize he's from Memphis which has been like my 2nd home last couple years. Memphis is an Incredible music city so it makes sense Christian is pretty dope. I was booked as a special guest at an event once with all types of music and was blown away by the talent. It may be one of the most talented cities in the country, seriously. But he's been making moves and I'm excited to see his growth, especially with the team he has.
Memphis recording artist, Christian Kuya, releases his debut single "Feel Like" produced by 808 Mafia's Nonstop Da Hitman (Yo Gotti "Errybody" / Rick Ross "Same Hoes") . This new record features a catchy hook, crazy 808's, and a carefree take whatever you want energy just in time for the summer flex season. KUYA speaks about living life to the fullest w/ little regrets and enjoying all the fruits of being a filipino star in the making.

Chris Rivers - "Shook Ones" freestyle

With the passing of the late great HNIC, Prodigy of Mobb Deep many fans, artists, and DJs have been paying their respects.

The most recent, and one of my favorites is Chris Rivers.

After hearing about the sudden death of Prodigy Chris went to his instagram and drop some heavy bars over Shook Ones instrumental. Starting a #LegendsNeverDieChallenge which sole purpose is to show respect and keep the legends immortalize in this Hip Hop world forever.
