IV League – IV League – (Album Stream) – 2015

If you’re just now getting familiar with The IV League, welcome. Those of you who keep up with the scene most likely have that one dream-team of artists that you would love to see join forces. This is where the League comes in—stamped and served as an “international fraternity of extraordinary emcee’s, producers and deejays.”

Veteran emcees Ras Kass, Shabaam Sahdeeq and El Da Sensei have been in the mix for quite some time, and still continue to release full length projects year after year that consistently offer something refreshing and satisfying for their worldwide fanbase to sink their teeth into. Their skills have yet to age. So what happens when you get them in the studio with some of Hip-Hop’s more burgeoning talent? Well, it’s the perfect mesh as New York wordsmith El Gant offers his expected, unapologetically piercing lyrics, while Sam Solo, 4rAx and thekeenone step up to the plate and deliver quality bars akin to their seniors.

After a handful of released singles under The IV League’s umbrella, coupled with a busy year for all of the artists involved, their full length debut has finally arrived. The versatile, 11 track offering covers quite a large brushstroke of soundscapes for those easily bored, as Snowgoons, Vanderslice, Jake Palumbo, Poetiq Beetz, P Original and more carefully select the proper canvas for each artist and theme. And the outcome is as blunt as it is raw.

‘The IV League’ is now available for stream courtesy of AudioMack and SoundCloud, and can be purchased for download through Bandcamp for just $10. Keep up with each member of The IV League, through their Twitter handles listed below — thanks for your support!

Semi-Hendrix( Ras Kass & Jack Splash) – Jesus Pressed Mute

a1443124150_10

Semi-Hendrix drops a new single on us, in preparation of their album Breakfast at Banksy’s which is slated to drop October 16th.

The duo formed following Splash’s world tour with his underground cult funk band, Plantlife. Upon its conclusion, the 10-time Grammy-nominated producer and three-time winner decided to leave Miami in favor of Los Angeles. For the native Angeleno, this was where it all began. He’d seen incredible success over the previous decade, producing for Cee-Lo, Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar, and a slew of others. But he wanted to return to his roots and make a pure hip-hop album, a passion project with no input from industry types.

Check it out.
