The homie and blog regular Nolan The Ninja lets loose a stream of his sophmore album The Ill Shit. The homie is always coming through with quality music. Check it out.
His sophomore release, “The Ill Sh-t,” sews the pages from classic hip hop manifestos into Nolan’s own set of 14 songs. He and producer 5ynot’s minimalist sound beds preserve the boom bap era and give Nolan’s hoarse, sharp-tongued raps about industry monotony and artistic struggles room to roam.
“I just wanted to take hip-hop back to a time where emcees were known for just being ill and only coming hard with that Ill shit,” he says.
Fellow Detroit emcees such as Clear Soul Forces member Noveliss (“Antidote”), crewmate Chavis Chandler (“The Books”), and Fat Killahs’ members Marv-Won and Fatt Father (“Mahogany,” “Clout”) all lend their voices to further round out the album.
The homie Trilian sent this project over in which he collaborated with Rated R, and is giving it up for free, so y’all can rock to it. Give it a download. Check it out.
Diggin this from E-Prosounds, but I’m let the homie Matt Diamond break it down. Check it out.
Enter The Divine Mind. It is an ethereal dimension that allows you to perceive this world with clarity and super smooth beats. The debut project from E-Prosounds is the story of a refined lyrical creative who shares his travels in the everyday world that everyone else just wanders through. It serves as a collection of moments that give you the foundation of how E-Prosounds came to be. He flirts with ideas of Creationism to the extended mental escapes he takes where his other world thoughts stem from. Sit way back and enjoy the experience. No performance enhancing drugs or samples were used, so please don’t put any asterisks after the numbers this project puts up. Just 100% organic Hip-Hop.

Gave this joint a listen from Mute Speaker, and I’m diggin it. Check it out.
Brighton, UK producer Mute Speaker presents Take Yourself Apart, featuring Chris Clarke, J-Thorn, Gajah, Express Fresh, BeOND, Capsize, Gel Roc & Pause. Mute has three full-lengths of material out : 2010′s Baboon Poetry, 2011′s Smart Bomb, 2012′s Post Block, 2013′s Spook Meter EP, Dripfeeders & the collab album with Gajah On & Offspring featuring Shuanise & Open Mike Eagle. “My intentions of making a proper hip hop album with lots of guest featuring MC’s finally began to come together toward the end of 2013,” says Mute Speaker about the project. “I was lucky enough to meet LA MC Malkovich whilst travelling in southeast Asia, which led to some great new introductions – most noticably Chris Clarke, who appears on seven tracks on the album. After becoming a little tired of the current ‘beat scene’, it was always my plan to try and take the music back to what I enjoy the most – dusty, heavy sample based boom bap beats – although there’s always room for a little experimentation along the way.”
