Blackout Top News

Balkanski Nijemci, Jubi i Jo, izbacili su novi spot za traku Seremo na zakone. Produced by Legere Reimund.


There’s a big difference between a New York record and a New York “sounding” record. The differences may seem trivial, but in the Internet era, a track coming from the East Coast could pass as if it was from the West Coast, or even the Dirty South. But to those of us raised by the sounds of kicks, snares, and thick bass lines are well aware of the impact they’ve had in our infatuation with the culture, which as of late has seemed to have taken a back seat to other styles. Luckily, Nutso, a Queens block boy, born and raised in the Rotten Apple, is here to supply us with some “Str8 Talk”; a gritty cut that’s sure to remind those that have been sleeping, that there’s no place quite like the home of Hip-Hop…NYC. Joined by Blacastan, and General Steele (of Smif-n-Wessun), the Ali Charlemagne (of Lightward Media) directed visuals, highlights both the skyline, and various bridges of the concrete jungle. “Str8 Talk” is the final video taken from Nutso’s ‘Divided Soul’ EP, which is produced entirely by Divided Souls Ent. & DJ Pain 1, and available for digital download and compact disc, courtesy of #NoLabelJustUS.

Bassivity srijedom udara jako sa Sivilom. Zadnji put je mnoge iznenadio sa “CECOM”, a ovaj tjedan nastavlja sa sjajnim izvedbama. U zadnje vrijeme nam iz Srbije stiže velika količina trap pjesama i njima sličnih, pa nam je protok ovakve kvalitete Hip Hopa često bio uskraćen. Bassivity i Sivilo su se složili da daju istinitim ljubiteljima Hip Hop kulture pravo štivo i do sad nisu razočarali. Poslušajte novu pjesmu, sa vrhunskom Eevom na refrenu, Sreća.

All well established Emcees in their own right; united, these ladies are a calculated combination of strength and femininity. In their self-titled EP, HERESY set for release on August 14th 2015, they share their stories and keep it – Ladies First.

An ill remix from recently mentioned Da Youngsta’s, a group that consisted of brothers Taji “Taj Mahal” and Qu’ran Goodman and their cousin Tarik Dawson. Their tracks were produced by hip hop legends like Pete Rock, The Beatnuts, Marley Marl, K-Def and DJ Premier.

They feuded with fellow teen rap group Kris Kross over the fact, unlike the more famous Atlanta duo, they wrote their own rhymes.

Remix produced by Pete Rock who also produced the original LP version that appears on their second album The Aftermath.

Released on EastWest Records America.



Pete Rock just released his new instrumental album Petestrumentals 2 a few weeks back, and to help Mello Music celebrate Beat Junkies founder J Rocc has created an exclusive 20 minute mix of the album highlighting Pete’s soul & funk. Shout to Rolling Stone for debuting the mix today.

Petestrumentals 2 conjures memories of BBQ cookouts and 70s Blaxploitation scores, rattling summer jeep cruises and blunted Jamaican vacations. There’s a gorgeous requiem to Dilla Dilla Bounce (R.I.P) where the originator pays tribute to the prodigy. You see the full range of Rock’s gifts on display: the meticulously chopped horns, unquantized drums, and air raid sirens. It contains the emotion of a thousand eulogies.

No record can’t be resurrected. There’s no sub-genre or era that can’t be converted into Rock’s singular brand of soul. His music is the closest thing we’ll ever get to a time-traveling DeLorean, effortlessly shifting between past, present, and future.

Here’s a little something every TDE fan has been waiting for. And as you expected, it’s pretty f***ing dope. Jay Rock finally comes back with some new music, sounding different than his regular gritty self. Showing a completely different color, Rocks Gumbo brings a whole lot of summer vibes and flava, yet the deep lyrics fit the feeling completely. Kick back, relax and enjoy Jay Rocks new single.
