Following the death of Sean Price there were numerous tributes showing how much of n impact he truly had on the culture. What we were waiting for was the tribute from P’s brother Rockness Monsta, understandably he was in emotional turmoil but we knew this was coming. Today he dropped this raw tribute. You can feel the pain in the lyrics. Rest In Power Price, your brother got you! You live on! Check it out!
Dope tribute of P’s Onion Head. Audio from the Sean Price NYC memorial show. Rest In Power! Check it out!
One of the things that I’ll alway remember about P is his willingness to help others. Hip Hop lost one hell of a person a year ago. Shout out to P for being a great person and great dad. Check out this dedication by Skyzoo, Rapper Big Pooh & AWKWORD titled “Cruel Intentions”. Every purchase of this track will benefit P’s family. Go Support!
KRS-ONE once said “Manhattan keeps on making it, Brooklyn keeps on taking it. Bronx keeps creating it, and Queens keeps on faking it”. Yes, Hip Hop started out in the Bronx and Joe Conzo was instrumental in documenting it. Joe has been a photographer since he was in elementary school and never looked back. In the late 70’s, he linked up with the Cold Crush and captured moments in Hip Hop history that would’ve been forgotten if it weren’t for Joe and his lens. Despite all the hurdles that one faced growing up in the Bronx during that period, Joe persevered and continued his photographic journey. Now a member of the legendary RockSteady Crew, Joe Conzo aka Joey Snaps is still documenting Hip Hop history and representing Hispanic culture to the fullest. The 7th Boro salutes Joe Conzo for documenting the art we love so much.
If you would like to see more of Joe’s photographs, I suggest you pick this up.
This next person I want to celebrate is one of my favorite emcees and a true polymath. D-Stroy was born and raised in Bushwick Brookyln where he would eventually link up with Tony Touch and later form a group called the Arsonists. He didn’t stop there though. With a strong desire to create, D-Stroy went on to different ventures such as hosting events for the NBA, starring in a short film, hosting a series online, hosting NYCFC games at Yankee Stadium, improv comedy, directing videos,…..you get the point. D-Stroy is a true role model to young latinos/latinas around the globe.
The 7th Boro salutes you D-Stroy. Play Big!
A few weeks back, Spek27 interviewed Rich Quick about this track titled “Searching for Tupac”. I have never seen the video previous to that interview but I thought I’d share it with you all since Pac passes away on this date 19 years ago. Check it out.
Searching For Tupac Shakur explains the life of prolific rap icon 2Pac from his birth within the Black Panther Party throughout his rocky yet extremely successful music and film career up until his untimely death. Rich Quick, a life-long fan of 2Pac delivers this biography in rhyme-form driving attention away from both the well known feud between he and The Notorious B.I.G and the many conspiracy theories surrounding his passing.

What do you think about when you hear the word “Philly”? Most likely you would say “Cheese Steaks”, “Eagles”, or “Rocky”. If you’re a Hip Hop fan, you would most definitely say “The Roots”. The legendary Roots crew has been holding down Philadelphia and Hip Hop for over two decades now. Their frontman, Black Thought, is the lyrical force behind the group and he is known for destroying microphones and embarrassing other emcees who dare to share a track with him.
This here is a collection of Black Thoughts illest verses as put together by @Mills_7thBoro. Make sure you tweet him and let him know how thankful you are for this goodness! No mixing….no annoying DJ dropping his name every thirty seconds…..just lyrics! Peace.
United Crates (aka The Vinylcologist) and S.O.N.Y. are back at it with another dope mix! This time United Crates is blessing us with Ol’ Dirty Bastard: The ODB-Sides in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of ODB’s Return to the 36 Chambers album. This is a collection of ODB hits, freestyles, and rarities that United Crates has so graciously compiled for us into one mix……for free at that! (No food stamps necessary!) Make sure to check this mix out and share it with your fellow hip hop heads.
Action Bronson brings a lot to the table beside his lyrics. He’s found a way to have fun creating music and has mastered the art of showing it to the masses. One of the first times I heard Action Bronson was this mixtape (title slips my mind) where he had Mark Sanchez do the intro. I thought that was pretty bugged out being a football fan and all. Then I came across this video where he visited a nursing home where he serenated the senior citizens….. (Hilarious!)
The there was the infamous Action Bronson Porta Potty freestyle….
After I said that I knew this guy truly didn’t give two shits about what people thought about him. He’s just out to make good music.
And then there’s the “Fu**” that’s delicious” food aficionado series….
You see where I’m going with this. The guy is a man of many talents making his own lane in Hip Hop. Salute to Bam Bam!

The young man from Fayetteville N.C. has done big things since he dropped back in 2007. He’s gained the respect of many in Hip Hop including legends such as Jay Z and Nas because of his lyrical ability and knack for making great music. J.Cole has dropped many dope tracks over the years so making a compilation of his best verses is no easy task.
In celebration of J.Coles birthday, Mills (aka the man behind the Verses series and long time Cole supporter) took the time to chop up some of Cole’s illest verses. Check it out and make sure you share this.
