Alchemist x Saga - Saga Ghanoush

Just five days following the release of Alchemist’s 20 track, Israeli music inspired, instrumental LP, ‘Israeli Salad,’ Brooklyn’s own, Saga, is pleased to present his artistic interpretation of the legendary producer’s offering, with ‘Saga Ghanoush.’ Comprised of seven hand picked instrumentals taken from ‘Israeli Salad,’ Saga showcases his silver tongued lyricism over ALC’s use of middle-eastern sampled source material. By keeping Israeli themed delicacies as the focal point of the artwork, originally designed by the Haifa-based graf artist, Unga, of the Broken Fingaz crew, Saga swaps the avocado for an eggplant, to represent the key ingredient found in Baba Ghanoush…or in this case, ‘Saga Ghanoush.’ If you’ve yet to download Saga’s, Marco Polo produced, debut effort, ‘From Out of the Shadows’.

King-Tee-Act-A-Fool

Originally from the West Coast and one of Compton’s earliest rappers – King Tee, released this track as a single from his debut album of the same name on Capitol Records back in 1988 and the track is considered as a hip hop classic in the West Coast.

King is cited as a big influence on early to mid-90’s gangsta rap even though he enjoyed little commercial success. He influenced The Notorious B.I.G. with his flow, style and deep voice which BIG would imitate at times on his classic 1994 Ready To Die album and by the words of Ice T from an interview, King Tee was one of BIG’s favorite rappers. King collaborated with DJ Pooh and E-Swift who were practically unknown at the time.

He resurfaced from time to time, on Dr. Dre’s 2001 and released some independent albums of his own. Interestingly, he was a mentor of a „then young“ trio called Tha Alkaholiks and helped them release their debut album under his guidance on Loud Records in 1993.

Boombox material.

rock mecca

Queens emcee Rock Mecca teams up with legendary lyricist Canibus to wreak havoc as Hell’s Angels on this track from Rock’s upcoming sophomore LP, Ironworld.

Over a menacing soundtrack from rising star producer Jake Palumbo (Ras Kass, Masta Ace, Shabaam Sahdeeq), Rock and Canibus intimidate the competition relentlessly and don’t stop rhyming until they beat the track into submission.

His critically acclaimed debut Pirate Radio Star was released on September 2012 on indie label Rebel Vein Entertainment.

Rapper Big Pooh

Rapper Big Pooh returns with a new video for the Apollo Brown produced track – Stop. Pooh has dedicated this album to illustrating the complicated issue of race in America.

The video begins with Rapper Big Pooh and crew driving, being followed by the police. Pooh gets pulled over, expecting the worst. Flashes of historic racial injustice flash in his head, now expecting to be treated differently because of the color of his skin. Surprisingly to him, he is only given a warning, leaving him to consider the double-edged sword of awareness.

Directed by Jay Brown, the song is from the album Words Paint Pictures, produced entirely by Apollo Brown.

Dope, I had to rewind a few times.
