Consider it the alchemy of Madvillain and “The Maltese Falcon”: a five-part fable of tangled crimes, narrow escapes, and raining lead. The door busts open with “A Conspicuous Man.” L’Orange’s carefully severed cinematic clips hold the frame steady. The Windy City-raised Jae muscles the narrative forward—the hitman creeping.
Curren$y, the prolific New Orleans MC drops yet another awesome project, this time in the form of an EP. As the title would suggest, I truly recommend you bop these jams in your ride. If you don’t have one, do it anyway.
The awesome Amsterdam femcee MC Melodee continues to collaborate with her long time partners in crime Cookin Soul on the production and delivers sweet visuals for Terrible Thing to Waste. As if the sound isn’t sunny and viby enough, the video was shot in the beautiful nature of Las Estacas, Mexico. Yet, as laid back as the sound is, Melodee still kicks some dope flows and gritty lyrics regarding the whack, false sh*t surrounding her in the Hip Hop world. Fellas better know it, ya brain is a Terrible Thing To Waste.
PS: Stay tuned on this, because we’re delivering an exclusive interview with MC Melodee for Blackouthiphop.com in the coming days!
This awesome sounding ID Labs And Frank Dukes produced track is the second announcement to Wiz’s and Curren$y’s (second!) collaborative mixtape #2009, marking the year they collaborated and met on their first mixtape. Check out this very calm, yet vibrant and harmonic track and I hope you’re about as excited as we are for the mixtape release!
With this new age in Hip Hop, we’ve seen a lot of junk come through to us. A lot of heavy BS. The good side though, a lot of other factors important to very quality Hip Hop and the art of detail within the genre, have seen much more light due to the blessing of the Internet, or in other words – Independence.
By that I also mean, that producers, such as MoSS, who have worked with an array of serious rappers also got the chance to release a production album. Just check the single with these heavy hitters, with the blessing of the one and only DJ Premier. Things ain’t too bad after all, matter fact… you know just what I mean.

You probably don’t remember, but way back in 2012, Waka Flocka Flame tweeted that he planned to run for president in 2016, and it looks like he was being completely serious. He exclusively revealed the news to Rolling Stone that he’s throwing his hat into the 2016 presidential race, and even filled out some paperwork to prove it, though we’ll ignore that Waka isn’t even old enough to run yet.
