new music video: BPos, "LostFaith" 

Forever faithful, San Francisco Bay Area's most optimistic hip hop crew BPos (short for Be Positive) team up with director Tony Rain to release the (3rd) eye opening visuals for their song, "LostFaith".
Emcee GoodWord plays frontman in the narrative about his encounters with a young lady who becomes deeply jaded upon doing the knowledge on new world order conspiracies. So what exactly are "they" hiding from us, brothers & sisters? At the end of it all, GoodWord in company of the BPos superheroes D-Wiz, Khafre Jay, Gyrl Ab'Strakt & DJ Johnny Venetti raise awareness on crucial issues while holding onto their hope and faith for a "better world".

Peep the video (& look for cameos of other bay area hip hop superheroes i.e. Monk McNizzle & GiGiO, etc;)!



& make sure you check out their album they released this year, "POSITIVE BEINGS"! It is a masterful album filled with funky music & thought provoking messages top to bottom! Don't sleep on the real: https://bpos.bandcamp.com/album/positive-beings

don't be a turkey: Ras Kass "Nature of the Threat" 


"Now listen, when you celebrate "Thanksgiving"
What you are actually celebratin'
Is the proclamation of the Pope of Rome
Who later, in league with Queen Isabella
Sent Cardinal Ximenos to Spain
To murder any blacks that resisted Christianity
These Moors, these black men and women were from Baghdad, Turkey
And today, you eat the turkey, for your "Thanksgiving" day
As the European powers destroyed the Turkeys
Who were the forefathers of your mothers and fathers
Now fight the power you bitch ass niggas"

- Ras Kass
 

Catch a Whooping Cough from Unorthodocks and Gawdlee 



First off this beat is just nasty, the producer Dr. LA Flow laced them with that 20s Jazz feel with some grimey drums and some dope sound bites in there. This young MC from Phoenix Arizona holds it down with a dope feature from Gawdlee. Both of their styles compliment each other really well. This cat is only 17, so I am sure we will be hearing more from Unothodocks soon enough.

Hip Hop isn't dead cause Wu-Tang is Forever 


The production backbone of the Wu-Tang temple dynasty RZA, released the album "Bobby Digital in Stereo" 16 years ago today.  He is one wild cat with outlandish concepts and always grimey bluesy soulful sample-based production. We think this album is an album that never really gets the mention when people talk about the who's who's of Wu Wu, but maybe that is why we are able to enjoy it even more.  When a rapper is able to create themselves as another character and ride it all the way out through an entire album; this is something that only real weirdos can appreciate. RZA is definately a creative samurai, only if he'll stop playing with Hollywood Screen Facists and keep diggin in the Crates.  We uploaded the sample to "Love Jones" which is a cutty song from the late 70's by Mighty Ryeders called "Star Children", so chop away and let us know what kind of cake you come up with. BONG BONG!
 

YCR headnods to Granddad Music by Granddad Woolly  

Go check out the latest track by Grandad Wooly called "Granddad Music". This Indiana emcee has a wide range of styles but he always stays on point with his own voice generated by poetic lyrical content. Right now, Granddad is currently making waves in ATL and recently linked up with SoulBrova to bring you Granddad Music. The beat reminds us of some old 70s movie montage mixed with some kind of soulful drumline sequence. The message is clear that he does not get down with the fuckery that is being fed for hip hop consumption.
