DJ Mark “The 45 King” and K-Def team up to bring us on a musical mission. Helping us find the dead sea scrolls from hip hops past while giving us a nice backdrop to ride to. Do yourself a favor and support the underground guys that were the building blocks of yesterday. Not only will it make you feel great, but it will keep them doin what they do and giving us that raw uncut. The independent scene is flourishing right now and major labels would never release and instrumental record like this one. Emcees, this should be in your ipod for those long drives. Savor it.
Legendary producer K-Def breaks down some of his dopest records and some of his early life when he chops it up with J-Zone. K-Def is most famous for his early Lord Of The Underground records, but he also worked with Da Youngstas and formed the underground group Real Live. Coming up under the wing of Marley Marl is some big shoes to fill, but he ended up getting it done. These 2 are familiar and have been working together for years. Zone worked as an intern in K-Def’s studio during his early years.
Thirstin brings together some of his favorite lo lives for this mixtape that pay homage to the art of f@ckin and suckin. Features include Meyhem Lauren, Tash, Spit Gemz, Smoke DZA, and Master Fuol to name a few.
There has been a ton of talk about the RTJ2 project. This track in particular features an aged Zach De La, where we only hear his classic sound poke through a few times during the verse. The track definitely shows progression from the first record. Surprised nobody posted this. Banger for sure.
Check how Sol Messiah flipped the Bucktown beat. The verses are a bit serious too. Best believe I’m staying on the look for more new stuff from him.
