After years of anticipation, one of hip-hop's most famed DJ's and producers presents his major label debut album. Cut Chemist's 'audience' appeal as crossed over through numerous genres, from the straight up organic rap styles of Jurassic 5, to neo-latin R&B group Ozomatli, and the legendary soul/funk, rare groove collaborations with "Freeze" partner DJ Shadow. As with other turntablists who get national record deals, Cut had to adapt away from the uncleared sample-heavy collages on indie mix projects like "The Litmus Test" and "Product Placement", and flex his skills as an original beat producer on both instrumental compositions, as well as with other MC's such as Mr. Lif and Edan (both featured on the lead single "The Storm"). The result is undoubtedly one of the most diverse and eclectic creations to hit the music scene so far this year. Order from Sandbox and you'll also receive a FREE promotional poster provided directly from Warner Bros!

Truth be told, our company almost got the rights to this CD to distribute ourselves, but it was so damn hot and sought after that we certainly didn't mind having a larger organization to handle it instead. Clocking in at 37 tracks, "Street Triumph" is Freddie Foxxx's best effort in a long time, possibly as far back as the classic "Industry Shakedown". Hosted by DJ Premier with DJ Monky and Ternaround on the mix, this full jewelcase and shrinkwrapped disc contains no less than 11 officially unreleased and world premiere songs, as well as classic collabos with Nas, M.O.P., O.C., and Heather B. Additional beats from Large Professor, Pete Rock, Showbiz, Alchemist, Diamond, Beatminerz, Kev Brown, M-Boogie, Easy Mo Bee, Hidden Agenda and more. Don't sleep on this one, cause you'll be sleeping on one of hip-hop's all time best.

Without initial encouragement from Raekwon The Chef over a decade ago, we may have never seen what is now the incredible career of Ghostface Killah. And of course, "Only Built For Cuban Linx" remains one of the finest Wu solo projects ever recorded. After the big success of the first "Vatican Mixtape", Rae is back with the sequel on his own Ice Water Records imprint, 23 tracks strong with guest shots from Busta Rhymes, AZ, Ghostface, Nas, GZA and RZA. "The DaVinci Code" is rife with stick up kids, corrupt cops and crack rocks...let's tune in to some east coast gangsta music.

It's a break finder's wet dream as Kon & Amir team up with legendary DJ Muro for the ultimate blend of obscure soul, funk and jazz in this double volume CD set. Borrowing the same name as Muro's original "King of Diggin" compilation, this BBE/Rapster edition continues the fine line of hip-hop connoisseur titles which began with the "Beat Generation" series, as well as previous crate-o-vinyl compilations from Keb Darge, RZA, DJ Premier, DJ Spinna, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Kenny Dope and many others. Includes an incredible 61 selections of lost gems and jams, virtually all previously out of print, nor ever available in CD format before until now. Order from this site and you'll receive a bonus CD from BBE - the new Vikter Duplaix "Stimulation" mini-album featuring 5 tracks by the well-known Philly neo-soul artist and producer. This import-only bonus disc lists for $7.99 but we're offering it at no additional charge with purchase of "The Kings of Diggin".

Last October, Tony Starks headlined at the famed BB King's concert hall in Times Square with a long list of guests...surely something that people would want to take home one day on video. Rather than worry about camcorder bootlegs flooding the street, GFK arranged for a professional 3-camera production in-house with audio taken directly from the soundboard for what is sure to be one one hip-hop's best documented underground shows of the year. Whether you were able to attend in person that night or not, "Live In NYC" gives you a permanent front row seat for one hour of his greatest hits plus some bonus surprises. On-stage guest apparances include GZA/Genius, Masta Killa, Cappadonna, Killah Priest, Trife Da God of Theodore Unit, and DJ Mathematics. 22 selections plus 4 bonus tracks.

I think one of those albums will be to the detriment of the other, unfortunately. Cut had little or no input on the Jurassic 5 album. Judging by the frankly nauseating lead single I'm not holding out much hope of J5 holding onto much of their integrity in Cut Chemist's absence.

You should check this one out, maybe. This is better than the single at least. The beat is quite nice. It reminds me of Jay Dee in his Slum Village era, but the preachy lyrics are tiresome:

I'd upload the minging single, but I don't want to make people upset. Seriously, it's the Dave Matthews Band featuring Jurassic 5, rather than the other way about. The track doesn't even sound like a hip-hop song. The rapping just doesn't suit it. It's like they were trying to fit square pegs into round holes with that one. A very unnatural and forced collaboration.

CL Smooth Preparing New Album 'American Me'

By Rudy West

Date: 7/3/2006 1:18 pm

Rapper CL Smooth is ending a ten-year hiatus and releasing his highly anticipated solo album, American Me.

The album, which drops on Shaman Work Recordings, features production by Arsonist of the Heatmakerz, Kaygee and Tramp of Divine Mill and newcomer Mike Loe.

" American Me is about misconceptions. It's about the things people say, the things people perceive, right or wrong it's about the speculations that we force on each other," CL Smooth explained.

The first single from CL Smooth's debut is titled "Smoke In the Air," which is slated to hit radio nationwide this July. A video for the single will hit major video outlets as well.

Like his well known songs "Straighten It Out," "I'll Take You There," and "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)," which were recorded with former partner Pete Rock, American Me will tackle a variety of personal and political topics.

"I'm bringing the real deal, in spite of everyone and everything else. My lyricism isn't about brute force; instead it showcases what I've come up against and why I'm still here."

American Me hits stores September 19 on Shaman Work Recordings.

Below is the track listing for American Me:

1. American Me Intro

2. American Me

3. I Can't Help It

4. Call on Me

5. Black Heart Radio interlude

6. CL Smooth Unplugged

7. Warm Outside

8. The Interview

9. Gorilla Pimpin

10. The Outsider

11. The Impossible

12. Smoke in the Air

13. Travel Sometime interlude

14. The Stroll

15. American Me Outro

16. All We Ever Know

Hmm. Does anyone know what those producers are like? I don't think I know them at all. In fact, I just wanted at least one Pete Rock collaboration :lol:

Judging by their titles alone, 'CL Smooth Unplugged' and 'Gorilla Pimpin' sound pretty good ThumbUp.gif

The Heatmakerz have done production with Cam'ron, haven't heard of any of the others.

I can't imagine CL Smooth rapping over Dipset beats would work particularly well :lol:

Warm outside is good and that was done by Arsonist from the Heatmakerz. I think it could work.

Edit: Just realised that Kaygee from Naughty by Nature is producing and divine mill is his label, so production looking good.

Some absolute H E A T in the form of Pharaohe Monch's new track, Let's Go!

One for the money, two for the show, three to get it crackin' in the hood, LET'S GO!

He kills an M.O.P. steezed burner with lines like "They research my stem cells, clone ten of me; Send one of 'em back in time, just to get rid of me; Stop Pharoahe Monch from having verbal epiphanies, that's new definition to 'Your own worst enemy.'"

Man thats dope. The bit you just quoted at the end is one of them lines I hear and I just laugh out loud at. I dunno if anyone else does that, but you just hear some lines that are so sick you laugh at their awesomeness.

Word. That's the absolute beauty of MCing at its essence or whatever.

Speaking of Mr Lif, does anyone have a copy of 9th Wonder's remix of his track 'Brothaz?' The original is off the new Lif album, but I hear 9th's remix is some fire. It's got Chuck's 'Shut Em Down' one-to-ten countdown chopped up on it, a la 'Ten Crack Commandments.' Needless to say, I'd love to hear it. I can't find it anywhere, though. Hook a brother up.

EDIT: Another lollorhyme from the Pharoahe track:

"Nigga can rap, no shit Sherlock, y'all can't see me like Matt Murdock"

B) That's like some throwback simile rapping.

Does anyone have Mobb deep - Cobra? I was hoping it would be on the album, but instead they filled it with cack.

"Humongous Cucumbers" from the Necro track I posted makes me LOL. That whole album's got at least one laugh out loud line like that on every track.

Dunno if you have it, but seek out the porno Necro made "Sexy Sluts: Been There Done That". Theres a lot of funny shit on that. Theres a massive bit with Necro interviewing Jerry Butler, thats funny as fuck. I think we might be the only guys who like Necro around these parts though.

IIIIII WAAAANNNNTTTTT TOOOOOOOOO LICCKK YOURRR PUSSSSSYYYYYYYYY!

My tongue goes back and forth...

You mean he's good and Necro's shit I'd imagine. Necro shows some amazing wordplay and technicalities in his rhymes. This often goes unnoticed though. There are a lot of horror movie and metal references that don't make much sense unless you know the films/bands he's mentioning. Blood Sucking Freaks (The Incredible Torture Show)being the main film that he seems obsessed by. But yeah Bill wipes the floor with 99% of rappers out there right now.

Im sick of hearing about Necro's penis. I fucking love his beats, more than most other producers to be honest, but I really struggle to listen to him rapping now.

You mean The Pre-Fix for Death or The Sexorcist?

I think it was Uncle Howie drooling over that tied down slut. yeuch!

Yeah that was fucked up, I skipped that pretty much. But I guess that was the point?

Secret Society should have a lot less of the penis and throat-slitting lyrics, and be a little more non-phixion. Couple that with the fact that the psycho+logical shit seems to be getting better and better, I'm really looking forward to it.

Oh, don't get me wrong I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT for Secret Society. I can fucking wait for more Necro solo stuff about how much he loves whores, drugs and blood.

Anyway, isn't Bill's solo due before that? :blink:

I meant the pre-fix for death. I havent listened to The Sexorcist, whats that like?

Here is a treat for the Notorious Big fans - Biggie got the hype shit (radio rip). This track was recorded for Biggies demo in 1993. It was played once on the radio by Mister Cee, never to be heard again:

2007 now. Secret Society - classified. Seems to be all about La Coka Nostra at the mo also due 2007. Necro doesn't do drugs surprisingly. Big cakes & pies instead.

The Sexorcist has some of the best beats he's ever made. Real 70s sleazy pimp shit. The lyrics are pure porn/pimp mixed with a healthy dose of humour. That album is screaming out for an instrumental version release.
