Ok so I have to admit that I was not a big fan of these guys when they dropped their first couple songs...but Im liking this feel good music...and if you a fan of pop hip hop like Black Eyed Peas (GARBAGE, just an opinion) then you should at least listen to this type of pop hop, talking about something real...

East vs West (New Singles) - Killah Priest, Sene vs. Crooked I, Ya Boy + Bonus Track: East Flatbush Project
Now in no way is this meant to create any beef/tension...I just came across four pretty dope new singles today...two from the east and two from the west...so I figured Id post em all up together...click artist to download
Now how have these two not blown up!!! I mean ya, the big on the westcoast, but these two MC's are two of my favorite gangsta rappers out rite now...Ya Boy, reppin the bay & Crooked, reppin L.A.
Now Sene is similar in my mindstate...although he from BK...how has this dude not made it?? He has recently gotten together within one of LA's brightest young stars (Blu) and made some great music and there will be more to come. Killah on the other hand has been doin it for awhile now...he was doin it back with the early Wu Tang.
Ok so Im adding this because as I was making this post my itunes started playing, A Day in the Life by East Flatbush Project...pretty dope song that I was unfamiliar with, so I thought I would share.
So I know that this album doesnt come out until September 30th...but props to my friends over at Musical Schizophrenia for getting this a month and a half early...I havent had the chance to give this a spin yet...but I am looking forward to it...big ups to Heaps and company...check out their blog here...

Anytime you can bring on of the greatest and upcoming stars of the L.A. underground (Blu) and put him together with one of the members of the most recognizable hip hop groups of all time (Inspectah Deck of Wu Tang) you are guaranteed to have a hit on your hands. DJ S1 of The Strange Fruit Project did just that. Im digging this track...

Ok so instead of posting each single of the day individually...I decided to do it all together, because Im lazy, but also so it doesnt take up to much of ya time looking thru each post...but mostly because Im lazy. CLICK SONG OR ARTIST TO DOWNLOAD!
A new single from Luda's upcoming album/mixtape...not really sure...two of ATL's finest on this one.Ludacris - Wish You Would f. T.I.
So evidentally this track was supposed to be on Freddie Foxx's, Crazy Like a Fox Album, which was released in 1994, but it was unreleased and just now hit the internet?? Anyway it features Pac, so I had to get it.
Yall know how I feel on R&B...hit or miss for me...this one is a hit.
Two more tracks from Large Pro's upcoming album, Main Source (dropping September 30th).
I was unfamiliar with the Knux, but Im liking these tracks...pretty original and catchy...Bang, Bang is real dope...check it out.
It seems the current trend is rappers speaking up about politics (or againt G W Bush, however ya wanna look at it). A lotta people are offended by the lyrics in political hip hop...I LOVE IT! Whether you agree or not, we live in a country with freedom of speech and this is no different then someone on television stating their opinions. I also believe that when rappers speak out on real issues it touches a whole new audience that would otherwise probably not give an *ish about what is going on in the world around them...it is raising awareness...and that to me is what it is all about!!
Another leak from The Game's upcoming album, L.A.X. Personally I cant wait much longer for this album to drop! Well at least ya dont have to wait any longer for this track!
Custom Made has been getting a lot of exposure via the internet over the past few months. Their highly acclaimed debut album, Original Dynasty, earned them a spot on Hip Hop DX's DX Next list. They are constantly mentioned in the discussion of the new west movement. Although they are from Los Angeles many of their tracks remind me of an early Wu Tang Clan.
Custom Made - Beautiful End (Video)

Another leaked track from Tip's upcoming Paper Trail album...now if you know me then you know I am not a fan of Jazze Pha, at all! But I am a fan of T.I. so I had to post this...
I was hesitant to post this, because me personally, Im just going to wait until the entire album drops on September 30th to check it out...but for those of you that can't wait or need a preview (If ya dont know) here are three tracks from Large Pro's upcoming album Main Source dropping Sep. 30.
Royce Nickel Nine drops another gem, Goin Nutz...Royce uses a Paul Wall sample to let you know that he knows that you know...the internet loves him...damn Royce u r rite!
A hot track from The Red Giants. This is their first single of their Chain Reaction album...
So it looks like this is gonna be the first video posted today...I ALMOST posted N.E.R.D. Everybody Nose Rmx, but I couldnt get myself to do it...even tho it has Kanye and Lupe (who I love), I couldnt get myself to post a song thats chorus says "All the girls waiting in the line for the bathroom" over and over! Sorry all you Pharrell fans, but that is straight trash...anyone i digress. Here is T.I.P.'s first single off Paper trail coming at the end of September.

It frustrates me when people fail to open their minds to hip hop internationally. The hip hop culture has opened so many eyes worldwide and thus has created so many different types of hip hop and culture. Pete Philly & Perquisite having been doing their thing for a long time in Amsterdam and have been holding it down for the Netherlands. This is one of my favorite tracks from the duo, so I am glad they finally made a video for it. Check it out...
