Uncle Murda “Rap Up 2015” (WSHH Exclusive – Official Music Video)
Directed by Picture Perfect. Mass Appeal Records.
After dropping back to back classics with “Sidewalk Science” (2011) and “Concrete Soul” (2012), Brick City veteran and Ill Adrenaline Records co-founder Beneficence unleashes his 6th solo LP “Basement Chemistry”. Armed with the true sounds of the golden era Benef drops rejuvenated flows and shares mics with hip-hop’s elite lyricists. The lineup includes Inspectah Deck (of Wu-Tang Clan), Masta Ace, MC Eiht, El Da Sensei, AG (of D.I.T.C), Dres (of Black Sheep), The Legion, Chubb Rock, MindsOne, and Estee Nack (of Tragic Allies). Once again the close Artifacts affiliate traps the listener into slick, thought provoking rhymes backed by hard hitting yet soulful production from DJ Spinna, Da Beatminerz, 12 Finger Dan, Confidence, L’Orange, Presto, KON Sci, Jazz Spastiks, and many more. 19-tracks strong, the dusty and raw sounding full length displays a perfect blend of street jewels like the Inspectah Deck laced “Digital Warfare” and the Masta Ace inspiring anthem “When The Sun Comes”. The P Original produced banger “EZ As 1-2” opens the album brilliantly showing Benef’s relaxed but witty cadence. “Basement Chemistry” travels down many avenues including the battle rap driven joint “Against The Grain” and storytelling saga “Maui Vacation”. The album’s formula stays true to the game with obscure samples, intricate cuts, and official boom bap sound.

The emergence of hip-hop out of Queens, NY has proven to be timeless. From Run DMC, LL Cool J, and Kool G Rap to A Tribe Called Quest, Large Professor, Organized Konfusion, and Mobb Deep there’s never been a shortage of dynamic music from the borough. Longtime observer and emcee of the culture Truth is set to release his debut album “From Ashes To Kingdome Come” on Ill Adrenaline Records. A few years back Truth formed an alliance with PF Cuttin (of Blahzay Blahzay) and together the Queens emcee and the Brooklyn producer/DJ/engineer are ready to release a typical 90’s throwback sounding full-length that carries PF’s thumbprint throughout. On the 18-track strong heater Truth picks up various topics, ranging from life experiences to repping hip-hop culture – always showcasing his passionate and sharp lyrical rhyme skills. Entirely recorded and mixed by PF Cuttin, the album’s raw and dusty sound stays true to the streets, including features from heavyweights such as the late Sean Price, O.C., and AG (of D.I.T.C.). Newcomer JK1 The Supernova handles the majority of production along with veteran producers PF Cuttin, Psycho Les (of The Beatnuts), Da Beatminerz, and DJ Doom. Containing plenty of dope scratches mainly executed by PF Cuttin and Rock Steady’s own DJ JS-1, the album’s uniqueness remains on one accord with the boom bap sound and origin which is a rarity in today’s music.
New freestyle from DAVE EAST over summer 16 beat
DMX was at death’s door Monday night, not breathing, without a pulse and the signs point to an overdose.
It’s a lot worse than the story DMX’s people were putting out … that he suffered an asthma attack.
Yonkers cops responded to a call about an unconscious male at a Ramada Inn just after 6 PM. We’re told when cops arrived DMX was on the ground in the parking lot next to a parked car. Cops quickly determined he was lifeless, not breathing with no pulse and immediately began CPR.
After a minute of CPR X’s pulse came back.
