Blackout Top News


Common shows that thought-provoking writing and the realization of Hip Hop’s essence is undeniable and will ultimately withstand the test of time. In this 2011 interview, Common reflects upon the clever ideology presented on “I Used To Love H.E.R”, a song which effectively uses the idea of a woman and the changes she goes through in life as a symbol of Hip Hop’s life cycles.
In 2011, Common returns with the NO I.D. produced “Blue Sky”. Enjoy this inspirational offering of Hip Hop which shows the elevation of Common’s sound from sample-based soul towards an airy, epic feeling.

edo maajka Edo Maajka objavio popis pjesama s novog albuma

Edo je sinoć na svom Facebook fan pageu objavio svježe informacije o svom novom albumu:

Dragi moji,

Oprostite što sam vas zapostavio, ali iskreno ničeg nije bilo novog u mojoj karijeri što bi vam imao za reći. Radilo se dosta zadnjih par mjeseci i već nekoliko sedmica uzivam i preslušavam ovaj svoj novi materijal koji planiram izbacit vrlo uskoro, pa evo vam par informacija vezanog uz novi CD-Od Ede….

Na albumu vas ocekuje veliki spektar tema kojima sam se pozabavio, od panike do ljubavi i svega između. S obzirom da sam najvise toga uzeo od Billy-a, album ima taj njegov prepoznatljiv začin i produkcijski najviše podsjeća na Stigo Ćumur. Ima tu svega, od oldskul beatova, reagge-a, dancehall-a, dubstep-a, tvrdog rock riff-a, do zajebancije na temu džigere-narodnjaka.

Album bi trebao biti vani do decembra ove godine, a ozbiljnija koncertna promocija je na proljeće. Izdaje ga Menart kao i svaki do sada, miksa i masterira Studio Morris-Zagreb, FMJAM buraz, FMJAM…

pozdrav i voli vas Glavatar:)

U nastavku posta potražite popis pjesama i producenata koji se pojavljuju na albumu.
