Cymarshall Law and Skit Slam are Everliven Sound

Brother MCs drop their second album together, Freedom II

Cymarshall Law and Skit Slam are brothers (in the literal sense I’m pretty sure) born in the UK to Jamaican parents, and who spent their teenage years in New Jersey. They’ve both managed to go on to become fantastic underground MCs, and go by the name Everliven Sound when they team up. Their second album, Freedom II, dropped back in June, and has become an obsession of mine since I found it a few weeks ago.

To begin with, the two of them are phenomenally talented MCs on their own, and they work together extremely well, something many siblings can only […]

Wildstyle by Bassnectar

"Can't walk in these shoes cause my Vans is smoldering."

Bassnectar’s Wildstyle EP is jammed with dubstep goodness. A few tracks kill when it comes to the dubstep drop, mainly “Wildstyle Method” & “Underwater”, but one tops ‘em all.

“Hot Right Now” made use of some damn fine MCing, one of which is Zumbi of Zion I (who I think sounds like Tech N9ne). The Hip-Hop/Dubstep fusion is starting to make waves, which I expect to swell very soon.

Get it while it’s hot

Two Dangerous Remixes

But which busts better beats?

I’ve been on the search for so many damn remixes and mashups, and a lot of ‘em the same songs, that I’ve decided to put a few head-to-head.

First up is a remix to “Dangerous” by Busta Rhymes. KMT’s smooth remix features India Arie that’s made for a chilled out time. I doubt this is what Busta Rhymes originally was going for, but he pulled it off nicely. India Arie is especially what makes this remix… who would of thought.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Big Beats’ remix is a fine dubstep-esque version. Now this is what Busta would be looking for if “Dangerous” was made today. I gotta Party Down to […]

A Whole Lotta Love for My Adidas

I had to touch back on Beat Torrent because their second album is suppose to be dropping soon (or was suppose to in October). Here’s a friendly reminder to get that shit out (I promise to promote)!

Short post, my typing has been temporarily handicapped :(

Stars & Stripes: The White Stripes Reimagined

Hip-Hop and Rock, together again.

Bare with me while I get this mashup obsession out of me (if I can).

My latest find is from an LA based mixer, Adrian Champion. Adrian’s idea of mashing up a few White Stripes beats with the top hip-hop MC’s of the last couple decades is a legendary move, but Adrian seems to make it a much bigger point than it actually is.

At the start of each track, he decides to plaster his name and a pretentious oxymoron over each track (sample shown here). We know it’s a legendary idea, but slapping it all over […]

New York, LA,…Glasgow?

The Being, some quality hip-hop from the Land of the Scots.

Obviously comparing Glasgow to New York or LA is some serious exaggeration, but I was lucky enough to discover the other day that the city has quite an underground hip-hop scene. I’m sure some of you were already aware of this, but for those of you as clueless as I was, I present by way of introduction The Being.

The Being is a collection of hip-hop artists from Glasgow who met each other at gigs and around town. Their Myspace states that they are “more a stream of consciousness rather than a physical entity”. All the various members have their own albums and mixtapes, but the best way to introduce all of them at once is the […]

Firefly Mansion (DJ Stroke Mix) – 2Pac vs Owl City

"Picture a place that they exist, together.
There has to be a place better than this, in heaven."

If you can get past those annoying vocals from the original “Fireflies”, which thankfully aren’t in “Firefly Mansion”, DJ Stroke puts good use to the “Fireflies” instrumentals, mashing ‘em up with a legendary hip-hop track.

Although some of the cuts done by Stroke aren’t top notch, along with the ending – the “Fireflies” instrumentals seems to hit perfectly with 2Pac and Nas’s most memorable moments.

The best part’s gotta be when 2Pac first chimes in with the instrumentals from “Fireflies”, they both drop together […]

Even Dirt Off Your Shoulder After All (KMT Mix)

- Jay-Z vs. Finley Quaye -

I’ve become a mashup madman, lately! I’ve found about a half dozen mashups in the last week and I’ll be throwin ‘em up on here for the next month.

Now before any of y’all start bitchin’ about how old this is, don’t worry, I’m well aware! But if you haven’t realized yet, I could give a shit how old a song is. If it’s good, I’m gonna post it. And this shit is gooood.

Waterproof London is a dogpile of good smashups. I’ve been simply amazed by some of the good rhymes laid over chill beats. I might end up featuring a couple more […]

The Lady Killer by Cee Lo Green

The Soul Machine is back producing ever sexier souled out sounds.

First hearing about Cee Lo’s new album, I wondered if he could pull it off without Brian Burton (Danger Mouse), who paired up with him for Gnarls Barkley. But then “Fuck You” dropped and I was reassured Cee Lo would be al-fucking-right.

There’s nothing I love hearing more than fuck come out of a soul singer’s voice, but I was still wondering where Cee Lo would take it past this crude and catchy track.

For the rest of The Lady Killer, Cee Lo stops hatin’ and begins the love makin’. Whether the “Old Fashioned” love, physical sensuality or fuckin’ through metaphor, Cee Lo emanates the sex in Soul. There is, however, one song […]

Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager

"Manic depression is searching my soul."

It’s not his drummer boy flow. Or his dark persona. It’s not the puns, pot, press or any of it. What Cudi brings is himself.

When you create something, you create it for yourself. You share it with the world and should expect nothing back.

Welcome to the manic depressive world of Scott Mescudi. Get caught up in his highs and lows. […]
