It’s always great to hear dope MCs getting together, especially from NY, making Hip Hop.
This is off DJ JS-1′s No One Cares.
DJ JS-1 ft. Lil Fame, Joell Ortiz, Freddie Foxxx – Reppin’ New York[audio:http://www.7thboro.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/DJ_JS-1-Reppin_NY_Ft_Fame_Joell_Ortiz_Freddie_Foxxx.mp3|titles=DJ_JS-1-Reppin_NY_Ft_Fame_Joell_Ortiz_Freddie_Foxxx]
Ice Cube – AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted: On May 16, 1990, Ice Cube released his debut solo album after just parting ways with N.W.A. He claimed to have written most of the N.W.A. album and the Eazy E album… so this album should be an automatic banger, right? YES! At the time he was easily one of the sickest and most lyrical MCs out. On this album, he showed his lyrical talent, spit with anger and rage, and dealt with many deep issues going on at the time. The only thing missing was production by Dr. Dre, which lacked because the label did not allow.
Producers: The Bomb Squad, Ice Cube, Chilly Chill, and Sir Jinx.
Guest Appearances: Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Yo-Yo.
Sick lyrics spit with anger on AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted, The Bomb, and Turn off the Radio… speaks on real issues on Endangered Species (Tales from the Darkside) and Once Upon a Time in the Projects… Click here for my FAVORITE TRACK
“The saddest thing in life is wasted talent” – Robert De Niro in “Bronx Tale”
I usually don’t post these type of stories because I like Hip Hop to be shown in a positive light; but this is ridiculous. I really don’t understand how such a talented individual could let his life fall through the cracks like this. I’m not assuming he is guilty but this isn’t the first time Cassidy has been in trouble with the law. So now he’s a suspect in two murders in Philadelphia and was caught violating his probation. This reminds me of a quote from a “Bronx Tale”. “The saddest thing in life is wasted talent”. Peace.
After Elzhi does his thing over Nas’ whole Illmatic album….Here is a new track by Stealth where he uses only 4 words from Nas. He is an MC/producer from Hinesvile, GA who will be releasing his EP, Dial M For Metal soon.

On these posts, I personally write the lyrics of a new track or freestyle that I think are REALLY good. This time, I will switch it up a little. I came across a great video by TimesNuRoman. He does an amazing job at breaking down Lupe Fiasco’s lyrics and concept on an older track called “Switch”.
Pay Attention and try to keep up…..
Lupe proves he is LYRICALLY above most MCs and the concept was flawlessly executed.
A track off Tone Spliff’s upcoming album, Work Ethics which drops June 14. He is a very talented producer from NY and gets some dope features from artists like JoJo Pellegrino, Sadat X, Eternia, El Da Sensei (Artifacts), A.G., and Termanology.

In celebration of Prodigy’s release from prison and this weeks classic concert, I thought this would be a great time to share this. Peace.

I’ve been following 9th since the days of Little Brother and his production is always on point. A lot of people hate on him because of his use of FL Studio but his sh** sounds official. I don’t care if you use spoons and a harmonica, as long as it sounds good. He joins Cutlass Reid with the 9thMatic alias and drops a couple of bars on this one. Watch.
