Knightstalker & Falling Down "Built 4 Eternity" [Germany]

Hailing from Berlin, Knightstalker has been sending me some heat for a minute now. And when I saw he'd teamed up with the homie, Ackurate from ESTL I knew I had to give it a listen.

This is the 2nd single from his forthcoming “Kept In Perspective II” EP with producer Falling Down

“Built 4 Eternity” features verses from Dark Skinned Assassin, Merc Versus, and the aforementioned Ackurate.



Joe Iron "Banzai Boi vol 3" [JAPAN]

Konnichiwa, b-tches. We're back again with the latest installment of the "Banzai Boy" series by the illustrious DJ Joe Iron.

For the 3rd volume of the Japanese producers' "Banzai Boy" mixtape series he features some of the country's Best up and coming Japanese artists over Joe Iron production. ('A mixture of Japanese Hip-Hop, Trap and R&B music!').

Check it out. His production is NASTY. And although my japanese is 悪い (well...ちょっとはなせます) I love hearing good music and don't care which language it's in.

Joe Iron "Koza" feat. Match Maeda

A tribute to our hood KOZA (Okinawa City, Okinawa Japan)... a former war zone and one of the toughest neighborhoods in Japan.


V. Nova x M.O.P. "If I Ever Knew"

Brooklyn MC V. Nova presents his new video for "If I Ever Knew" featuring M.O.P. from Koch Era. His forthcoming album features Shabaam Sahdeeq and more. I'm definitely a fan of story tracks and a videos so this is pretty clean. I was jamming an old Gangstar CD today and one of my favorite songs on it is with Fat Joe and MOP. BEEN a fan of theirs.

Check out the video below:

Hip-Hop In: England [Krystatic]

For this installment of my ongoing "Hip-Hop In" series, I'm focusing on England, with a particular emphasis on Wolverhampton's Krystatic.

I met Krystatic last month in Atlanta during the A3C festival. He had a few shows (see beginning of video) and we kicked it for a while and I got to listen to his music and the dude is slick like Rick. He just dropped his new video today for "What's Happening".

Peace and love from across the pond.

Essince Throwback: 69 Boyz "Woof Woof"

THIS IS THE CUT! Remember when movies had bomb-ass soundtracks? Like THIS jam from the Dr. Dolittle soundtrack? 69 Boyz made a huge impact and their 20 year old dance hits STILL get the clubs cracking today. Respect.

Now enjoy this.


Pentorship: "Re-invent the Will"

For the past few years I've been a member of an organization called the Pentorship Program. As a Pentor I'm a business mentor to inmates. As someone who currently has friends in the system I love that someone is organizing a way to help encourage people's entrepreneurial spirits. If people could re-direct their creative energy then I'm confident there would be a LOT of incredible changes made, especially with young adults (men and women).

Their new slogan, "Reinvent the Will" is DOPE and looks clean. These are some of my favorites but there are more designs in the store.

No reason you can't look good while you're giving back!

The Bay Report: October (presented by Thizzler)

I've been a big fan of Bay Area site, Thizzler on the Roof for years. I met the founder at an event they did in San Francisco a few years ago when Mistah Fab cyphered with a homeless person after we did an interview.

I found out about a monthly series they do called the Bay Report of the illest music that month. THIS is the October edition. Shout out to DJ Ghost.

Joyner Lucas x Busta Rhymes "Jumanji"

I watched Joyner kill his feature during the BET Hip Hop Award cypher.

He teamed up with one of my all-time favorites, Busta Rhymes on the new track, "JUMANJI."

Tinsel: Headphone Necklace (fo' the ladies)

This is an awesome idea.

Aniyia Williams, founder of Tinsel is combining fashion with technology in this beautiful headphone necklace which comes in 24k and Silver. At first I was thinking, I wish they made this for men so I could rock it....but then I thought, F that, this is ill and mad convenient. I'm comfortable enough in my sexuality. I want this lol. But check it out:

The built in microphone is my favorite feature on my stock Galaxy earbuds (which I actually have plugged in right now so I can listen to this 5 year old US x Australian rap battle; the off the top rebuttals are INSANELY hilarious so I suggest you watch) . But yeah, back to the necklace. This is such a great function and look. Had I not known, by looking I wouldn't be able to tell it was headphones, too.

Logic "Like Woah"

It's been a while since I was able to update anything. After Reverie's tour (I still need to post part 3), I went down to Atlanta for A3C and BET Hip-Hop Awards weekend. Life got hectic and I stepped away for a while to recuperate the past 2 days. I was "Like Woah".


Fuego - Cuando Suena El Bling (espanish remix)

A friend played this for me when I was in NY this past weekend. Fuego translated/remixed Drake's 'Hotline Bling' song into españish and it's dope. I've been a Drake fan for a minute and trying to re-re-relearn Spanish this was dope, too. lol BUT press play and thank me later.

Lil Dicky Sway in the Morning Freestyle

Lil Dicky is dope. I've BEEN a fan ('member these?). He KILLED this freestyle he did back on Sway. I'll let him speak for himself.
