Hip Hop’s present and future is looking very appealing right now. A few years ago, I couldn’t say that. The wackness was everywhere and I wasn’t feeling many of the newer MCs. Today, the wackness and garbage rap is still out there, BUT so many new up and coming MCs are giving Hip Hop fans a refreshing sound. One of those MCs is a Toronto native, David Versis. He is not only an MC who can spit; he is a singer/producer/guitarist. He displays all of those talents on his latest album, Hate To Say It. It is the follow up to his DRAFTED mixtape that dropped last year. Hate To Say It is filled with honest lyrics, no gimmicks, and pure Hip Hop. The 14 track mixtape has NO guest appearances and features production from Versis, Arthur McArthur, JReal, Arion and J.Greede.
At the 3:15 mark, Treach says it perfectly:
“There’s alot of lollipop bullshit that’s been out there. Everybody is seeing what else is getting played on the radio. There’s no originality now. We at a time where there’s more artists than fans.”
Really good interview. Also talks about their longevity as a group, 20th anniversay, Flags, and 2Pac.
The first single off his Master Of Ceremonies album which is set to drop in April. This album, which has to be my favorite album title in a while, was NOT on myTop 10 Most Anticipated Albums of 2011 list because I had no idea it was coming out…but it is gonna be a banger!!!
Jesse Abraham has a new EP coming out in March titled One Day, but for now check out the lead single for it, a song called Spiderman on Vitamins produced by Spills. Also, the music video will be up VERY SOON….STAY TUNED.

Throughout the day I have been reading articles, tweets, and facebook updates related to the health of DJ Kool Herc. I am proud to see everyone in the Hip Hop community coming together for a common cause. Kool Herc is a legend and has cemented his place in Hip Hop history. I am not sure what his current situation is (physically or financially) but I was taught to help people when in need. With thats said here is some information on how you can help.
