Doja Cat feat. Tru Heru – “8th”


Without wait, Doja Cat and Tru Heru release another soundcloud single titled “8th”, giving their now joined fan base another digital dose of dopeness in case anyone felt themselves coming down from their last hit, “Lord Cooler”. Producing a triumphantly tuned canvas, beat maker HeemGod offers a canvas for these artists to paint & color with their panoramic perspectives on the planet, and their place in it. Blending and building together so naturally, word is circulating on a potential joint EP between these two, which would only bring clarity to potential already seen in their first two collabs.

If Tru as Heru himself, expect them to have their unified style down to a science & their creative chemistry patented, setting us up for a potential shift in sound; dividing the divine from the mere mortal and material experiences we accept as part of our everyday lives. Given the stars align, the planets continue their motion in orbit, and the gods grant us this rap request, anyone supporting this musical union understands the boundless possibilities that stem from it. That said, water the plant.

Chuuwee & Trizz – “Matter What”


If you’re follow Trizz and Chuuwee, you know that their current release “Matter Fact” is not only a dope record, but a foreshadowing to their future follow up to their highly received & respected project AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted.  Alerting their collection of fans via their social media outlets on the project’s progression in these passing weeks, amidst their solo ventures (Chuuwee – The South Sac Mack & Trizz – Leatherface EP) as successful independent artists, this union between Sacramento and Compton proves powerful & progressive for the CA state, and the entire West Coast music scene as well.

Nearly bordering a bond only seen between brothers, these two match styles effortlessly, creating a consistent wave of energy & bounce over the Saro production; mixing these like minded, rhyme grindin’ talents who careers stand parallel when partnered. The saxophone laced, private lounge sound record denounces doubters, denies haters, detests enemies, and dethrones any and all self proclaimed rappers & trappers alike caught up in their feelings over nonsense and attention, or lack there of. Expect more material to come from this dynamic duo of kick flippin’, wig splittin’, sick spittin’ MCs, standing atop the list as, AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted. Part 2 coming soon, meanwhile, keep smoking.

Vince Staples – Get Paid/Summertime ’06


Vince Staples, or more so, a staple in today’s rap community unleashes the second single “Get Paid” to back his previously released banger “Senorita” featuring notable hook assassin & hit maker, Future, off his Def Jam debut double album Summertime ’06. Representing the north end of Long Beach, this gang affiliated, story telling illustrating, openly opinionated, lyrically loaded nickel plated caliber of rapper is aimed  & set to dump on any doubters and nay sayers cramping his style. His newest record’s title speaks for itself, fixating his focus on getting paid & nothing else over a production that stylistically bridges sounds between both the Alchemist and The Neptunes.


Seemingly daring with the double disc approach to his album, this marketing tool may help him build upon an already solid foundation of fans whose crackish crave for more music is now the modern element progressing today’s cultural affairs. Only a few days out, the LBC’s newest active ass crip & DubCNN alumni is ironically giving his haters the blues, making his anticipated release available for streaming through the highly credible people at NPR. Look for Summertime ’06 dropping July 30th & preorder yours today via iTunes.

Prolix Moran – A Matter Of Time


Having recently released his long awaited debut album as a solo artist, Nigel “Prolix” Moran’s A Matter Of Time is a project whose title is a testament to the process & patience it has taken to deliver such a personal and prized piece of work. Raised between Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo, the west coast MC looks to widen his reach throughout the hip-hop landscape, and stake his claim through promising talent. Noted for his bullish attitude, gangsta isms and true authenticity; Prolix Moran provides a diverse pallet of rhymes and realness over tailored production from long time friend Digi (@WeBeDigi) to heighten the creative chemistry & experience felt throughout the album.


Nearly four years free from his prison bid & now calling Los Angeles home, Ziplock Music’s Prolix also presents his debut video & single “Days Like This” featuring crew members Headake & Digi off his now released solo project A Matter Of Time. The album’s leading track speaks to the harsh and humbling realities we all encounter in life, and explains the struggle of walking a straight path in a twisted world. Each MC laces the record with their own unique style, cadence and presence, bringing together the difference in flavors to deliver one consistent sound and recipe of rhymes for hip-hop taste makers to enjoy. That aside, the project is a fifteen track arrangement of pain and sacrifice, struggle and redemption, growth and motivating music that presents this aspiring artist as a positive example for an abandoned generation in need of light in today’s dark times. The project is available for streaming and download through all major media outlets such as iTunes, Spotify and Bandcamp so cop your copy today & spread the word on this new comer’s arrival.

Locksmith – 10 Kondrms


As he prepares to drop his third album Lofty Goals in the past three-four years, behind acclaimed pieces The Green Box & A Thousand Cuts, Bay Area bar-barian Locksmith releases the third installment & sample serving entitled “10Kondrms”. This new joint is only but another appetizer off what is to be a five star feast for those favoring refined food for thought, complimented by a glass of delicately aged wisdom, and topped with a matured perspective to complete the meal. Produced by a sixteen year old from Queens by the name of Marz BoyGenius, it was only right and necessary that Locksmith style on the record with superb wordplay & rhyme, while touching topics most people won’t have in conversation, let alone try and rap about.

Understandably, Lock always leaves spare keys for his listeners to let themselves into the world he lives in & acknowledges openly, creating a family vibe with his fans who’s unconditional support has allowed him to overcome his personal & trying feats. Lofty Goals is only a few days away now, set to drop June 30th, and will continue to add to the list of many reasons as to why this rapper’s rapper has reaching new yet not surprising heights; with an ever growing fan base, international tours, and receiving the rightful recognition as an artist who not only embodies greatness, but also the journey one most champion through to achieve that greatness, Richmond’s rawest rhymer is set to open up another chapter in his all ready storied tale.
