Chris Rivers' Hot97 Freestyle on Pun's Deathiversary

Anyone who knows me knows Big Punisher is my favorite MC. 17 Years ago This Week Big Pun passed away. And on the anniversary one of his friends, the OG Funkmaster Flex invited Pun's son, Chris Rivers to Hot97 to spit a Nasty freestyle over his dad's "Brave in the Heart" beat (which has arguably mt favorite Pun verse).

Rimy Low Key "On The Floor" [Toronto]

It's been a while since I blogged here. I've been busy but also, uninspired. Lots of submissions but they didn't fit the steez of the site, n'ahmean?

Enter Toronto-based singer, Rimy Low Key. He just released his new song, "On The Floor" produced by Akeel Henry and Versedl. I recognized the voice from before but this

"It's an eclectic blend of synth pop and funk reminiscent of 80's dance music. The song is about a girl who finds herself too far gone at the party but instead of this leading to her downfall she's overcome by the music and finds love, at least for the night."

It's super catchy. Great to break me out of my blog funk. Cheers, Toronto.

Mark Morrison - Return of the Mack (Seeb Remix) [Norway]

Almost 21 years ago Mark Morrison made one of my favorite songs of all time, "Return of the Mack". Grammy-nominated Norwegian dance duo Seeb added another ill remix to their archive. ‎

"Seeb had a sensational 2016, their remix of Mike Posner's "I Took A Pill In Ibiza" became a Grammy nominated monster hit‎, and one of the biggest songs of the year. It was the second most streamed song globally on Spotify, only Drake's "One Dance" had more streams.‎"

Mark Morrison's debut album in '96, 'Return of the Mack', was a multi-platinum success, selling 3 million copies worldwide. "The single reached #1 in the UK, and spent a remarkable 41 weeks on the US Billboard singles chart, peaking at #2."

The Combat Jack Show x Fat Joe

One of the first music videos I ever remember seeing as a youngster was Fat Joe. I'd missed the bus and was watching TV until my mom could get dressed in time to take me to school and I turned on MTV (which was finally unblocked) and a Fat Joe video was on. Seeing a dude who looked like Me on it (Latino) was major. I then of course followed the progression into becoming a HUGE Big Pun fan (RIP), Cuban Link, and the whole TS. But Joe has sustained longevity including last year's Grammy-Nominated "All the Way Up". He was a recent guest on the Combat Jack show and here's the interview.

(what's up, Mika?)

On this episode we take it to the South Bronx, Forrest Projects to be exact. This rap star has been around for 24 plus years and still going strong. He's part of the legendary DITC crew, he introduced the likes of Big Pun, Remy Ma, DJ Khaled and Terror Squad to the world. He powered through beefs with 50 Cent, Jay-Z and survived the ugly scenarios of being in these New York City streets. Internets we bring you the Fat Joe Episode of The Combat Jack Show. Yes, we covered everything from "Flow Joe" to his new situation with Roc Nation. The Don Cartagena is stronger than ever. #RaiseTheBarHigher

I met Viral HipHop Star, Layla Khepri about a year ago when I was touring with Reverie in Atlanta.

Yung Pinch - "Rock With Us" MV

So I was coolin' out and bloggin' last night and got in the youtube loop and came across this video from this long-haired cat with a funky smooth flow. I love the beach vibe and laid back style of the west coast. Kid's pretty slick. Give it a listen. It's almost 2017. Expand your tastes, yo.

Zaniyah - "Champagne Papi"

Florida-raised Canadian artist, Zaniyah has been singing since she was a child. Featured in Caribbean Magazine as Star of The Month, and nominated for the 32nd IRAWMA (INTERNATIONAL REGGAE & WORLD MUSIC AWARDS) for South Florida Emerging Star Under 21, Zaniyah is definitely a name to watch out for. I'm really feeling her voice. Check out her new record, "Champagne Papi".

Reverie - "Scheming" MV

For any of my longtime readers/supporters you know about my work with Reverie. It all started with my first interview with her back in 2013. I just got back from Chicago with her where we had her for a 2 show event before heading to NY (where she is now, I'm currently sitting next to the fireplace while watching the new WWE PPV).

She just dropped her new video, "Scheming" produced by the homie, Chase Moore. She's steadily been releasing videos for her forthcoming "Das Klein" EP and this is the 3rd release, shot in Amsterdam during her 8th European tour. Mira:

Jaden Smith "Fallen" MV

I heard some friends talking about this new Jaden Smith video so decided to check it out. It's pretty fresh. Kid's definitely creative. The older he gets the more I hear resemblance to Will's voice. Obviously different but especially when he raps toward the end I hear a little bit of it and I like it.

Respect to all who've been love 'sick'.

G.G. Garcon - "In The Morning"

Got this in my email today. I've been hella behind on my submissions but something made me click play on this. I think it was the quaity/style of the picture above. Usually when someone sends a selfie with the phone still in frame I dismiss it. Maybe it's supposed to be like that...maybe it's the fact I'm sitting in a recliner by the fireplace after making a fat-ass burger and eating some of momma's homemade quiche...but I thought, why not?

This guy's pretty dope. IDK where he's from because I wasn't given any pertinent information besides the link but he can spit. Delivery is on point. Woman on the hook has a nice voice and gives this a nice summertime feel. Warms me up, as I can see SNOW out my window.

But check it out. Takes me back.



Thanks, Cheetos (Tell It To My Heart)

So I've been watching this commercial for a while now with a corny dad driving his kids around when his partner in crime, the new Chester Cheetah cranks up this Jam while cornball dad karaokes into a cheetoh while some tenderonies drive by in a drop top.

The track is kinda slick. I have a thing for late 80s/early 90s pop. So for your listening/and let's be real, VIEWING pleasure, I give you, Taylor Dayne:
