Fueled by today's lack of appreciation and the decline in the art of the lyricist, Hex One's latest album 'Words Worth a Thousand Pictures' aims to take a stand for those who are truly masters of their craft. Technical, yet with a clear and concise message and deeply personal at times, Hex One offers a glimpse into his life as an MC and the world he lives in as seen through the scope of his lens. Backed by hard headnodic beats, deep, soulful samples with east coast and jazz influences, and booming drums and bass lines, Hex masterfully shatters contemporary society's notion of Hip-hop being a lowbrow genre of music. Despite music itself being highly subjective in nature, he aims to remove some of this subjectivity and boldly proclaim that some art simply takes more skill than others and talent is most certainly measurable. The ironic disconnect, however, between this measure of talent and the measure of one's success poses to be one of his life's greatest woes. The album is thus presented with a subtle melancholic tone throughout, as he struggles to come to terms with this realization. The bigger irony perhaps being that he does so with the same intricate attention to detail and lyrical prowess that is undervalued and overlooked in Hip-hop's musical landscape today. His philosophy remains: if a picture is worth a thousand words, so too can a poets words be worth a thousand pictures.

Perestroika
2LP | 2017 | US | Original (Dirty Version)

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Apathy (Demigodz, Army of the Pharaohs) and O.C. (D.I.T.C. - Diggin' In The Crates) combine forces to form 'Perestroika', a supergroup inspired by the cold war being waged on the rap industry. Anti-mainstream propaganda has become a bit of a cliche, so instead of speaking out against the unflattering direction that today's hip hop music has gone in, Apathy and O.C. have taken action by building a pillar in the ruins of what's left of true school hip hop. Picture the first time you heard Wu-Tang Clan's debut album "Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers" and were immediately swept up in to a dark Kung Fu movie, with the sound effects and painted visuals - "Perestroika" is intended to have the same effect... except it transports you to Cold War, Soviet Russia. From the Kremlin, to small villages affected by the economically devastating times of Perestroika, this album is a salute to the underdog and all those who are able to survive the coldest winters. Not entirely conceptual however, the album allows both wordsmiths to flex their greatest strengths over solid head-nodding East Coast-styled production. Showing up for the cause, guests Celph Titled, Slaine, Marvalyss, Kappa Gamma and Jus Cuz add to the palate alongside production that is mostly handled by Apathy, with MoSS and Illinformed (The Four Owls) contributing tracks as well. In a time of worldly political conflict and scandals, this project plays as the perfect soundtrack to the madness.

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Hip hop is an art form and culture that is constantly changing. Musically speaking, new technology and the latest trends have a very real influence on the records released from year to year. It's easy to get caught up in the pop culture hype machine and triplet beats that currently dominate rap. Trends come and go, but the proven elements of hip hop music will continue to be relevant for years to come. For instance, MC's that spit ferocious bars over dusty, head-splitting beats will never go out of style. Enter Detroit's Nolan The Ninja and his latest record, YEN.Released on DJ Soko's imprint, Left Of Center (LOC), YEN picks up where Nolan's earlier projects left off. Nolan, who has been gaining momentum in Detroit and beyond, continues to demonstrate his ability to rip a microphone. Underneath Nolan's agile delivery is an element of storytelling that is sometimes lost in rap. From Nolan's rhymes to guest appearances by Blu, Add-2, Denmark Vessey, and Quelle Chris, there is no shortage of heavy bars on YEN. "Calisthenics," which features Royce Da 5'9, is an exceptional track that showcases Royce's talent and lyrical depth.With stand out production from Black Milk, 14KT, Chanes, Denmark Vessey, Scud One, and Nolan himself, YEN is 17 tracks of non-stop heat that creates the perfect backdrop for Nolan's strong delivery. While certain trends in hip hop move one way, it's clear that Nolan The Ninja is content going the other direction. His new album isn't reliant on catchy hooks, trap beats or the glorification of party culture. Instead, YEN is a combination of heavy bars and head-splitting beats that accurately reflects Nolan's perspective and life experiences. YEN exemplifies the type of music that will remain relevant even after the current trends have faded and something new becomes popular.

Limited edition of 300. Over the past few years, Houston emcee Anti-Lilly has experienced a lot of hardships. Stretches of serious depression combined with the monotony of a 9-to-5 lifestyle, temptations from the streets and betrayal from a close friend forced him into isolation. Using Phoniks jazzy soundscapes as a coping mechanism, Anti paints a vivid picture of the struggles he’s endured since we last heard from the duo on 2014’s “Stories From The Brass Section”. The album's 17 tracks are stitched together with voicemail’s the young Houston rhyme-spitter received from friends and family trying to reach him while he was shut out from the world. Through it all, Anti emerges from his experiences with a renewed optimism, letting the world know “It’s Nice Outside” despite all the pain and suffering he’s withstood. “Thank y'all. This is the only way I know how to get through it. I lost my way for a while, honestly I'm still tryna figure everything out. I’m learning that we all are, though. I done lost as much as I gained, but it was all necessary. This album is dedicated to everyone who feels like me. Thanks for being so patient with me. God Bless” - Anti-Lilly

10 years after Blu and Exile released their magnum opus Below the Heavens, the California duo have reunited to release 14 tracks from the original 2007 sessions. In the Beginning: Before the Heavens contains previously heard songs and unreleased gems – the best of the best chosen from over 40 songs in the vault. Their third collaboration follows 2012’s Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them, and is slated for an October release.In The Beginning: Before the Heavens is made of up songs that are raw and untouched, keeping the authenticity of Blu and Exile’s creativity at the time. The album has guest appearances from familiar names like Dr. Oop, Donel Smokes, Aloe Blacc, and Blame One. While “Soul Provider,” “Another Day,” and “Party of Two” appeared on Blu’s Lifted EP, the majority of these songs showcase Blu rapping at his peak, maintaining his underground attitude as he dishes on reaching star status (“Constellations”), getting radio play (“On the Radio”), or opposing views in a problem-ridden world (“You’re Gonna Die Someday”). Exile, meanwhile, builds a golden hip-hop era feel with head-nodding samples and DJ scratches.In addition to releasing In The Beginning: Before the Heavens for their fans, Blu and Exile are continuing their celebration of Below the Heavens with an anniversary tour. After such a huge turnout for the duo’s Below the Heavens anniversary show at the Regent Theatre in L.A. in July, they decided to take the live experience on the road with Dag Savage, Choosey, and Cashus King.

Cold Busted Records presents “Omnipotent” by Lanzo.Chicago’s Carington Pierre, also known as Lanzo, has bestowed evidence of his cosmic hip hop beatology to the Cold Busted label in the form of a new album, Omnipotent. Previously recording for BLVNT Records and the Natural Selection label, Lanzo specializes in a style of experimental hip hop that draws from boom-bap, soulful downtempo, and atmospheres that lean toward the celestial. Lanzo and his trusty MPC 1000 have been actively producing since 2008 and Omnipotent confirms his upward trajectory, presenting fifteen tasty sonic morsels that groove in a confident but abstract fashion.Highlights include “Comfort Zone” which envelopes a swinging rhythm in dreamy strings, distant voices, and rolling bass, and the odd but appealing “Gutter Balls”, featuring some deliciously drunken synths. There’s also the melancholy quiet storm of “Colours”, “Against The Wall” and its heavily processed beat magic, and the loping sci-fi jazz of “Between Friends”. Omnipotent is a heady listen, displaying textures and swirls that accentuate the sturdiness of its drum beats. Lanzo has provided a distinctive soundtrack that’s ready-made for day blazing or night groovin’.

Triceratop plays the beats, Illslur puts down the raps, and together they’ve created “shredrap” a sound from dollar bin records, abandoned effects pedals, thrifted drum machines, heavy psych borrows and a VCR. They sound like a broken mirror without the 7 years of bad luck. While the fuzzy, almost abrasive production screams intensity, Headlock draw from wide inspiration and land somewhere near the intersection of Ill Communication x Ex Military. Headlock’s new self-produced six-song EP “Gang Nativity” is released worldwide on via Hit+Run. Available on limited-edition first pressing of Aquamarine colored 10” vinyl (comes with an iron-on patch), hi-bias compact cassette tape (includes a 1” round button), plus the digital download featuring an exclusive bonus track “Bark Roar” not available on either physical format.

Genre:Hip Hop
This vinyl issue of “Enta Da Stage” features the classic original album on two vinyls.Composed of members Buckshot, 5ft, and DJ Evil Dee, Black Moon simultaneously kicked off and defined the rap renaissance of New York with the release of “Enta Da Stage” in 1993. Whereas plenty of earlier groups had spit rage-filled rhymes to tear down the world’s unjust establishments, no one had evoked brooding pathos or introspective anger quite like Black Moon. Underground hip-hop might have been dominated by the sunny sound of G-Funk when “Enta Da Stage” dropped, but from then on the scene turned to the dark side. Black Moon was rising.Although Black Moon would go on to release three more albums – and its members would go on to greatness with Da Beatminerz, Boot Camp Klik, and various solo projects – “Enta Da Stage” remains the perfect distillation of tight lyrical menace, rowdy crew hooks, stripped down breaks, and deep basslines on all of its fourteen tracks. Although “Enta Da Stage” might stand in the shadow of East Coast albums such as “Enter the Wu-Tang” (36 Chambers), “Illmatic”, “Liquid Swords”, “Ready to Die”, “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx” and “The Infamous”, history will remember that “Enta da Stage” preceded those releases. To understand “Enta Da Stage” is to understand the origin and the spirit of New York hip-hop once and for all.

At last, Atmosphere fans can own the Overcast! LP on vinyl. Rhymesayers Entertainment has announced a vinyl release of the group’s debut album in celebration of its 20th anniversary.While the Overcast! EP did drop on vinyl, the full-length project has never been released on the format. That all changes on October 27 with the arrival of a remastered version of the group’s inaugural album, their one and only featuring former member Spawn.Slug and Ant never imagined they would be in a position where their album’s anniversary would even be a big deal. Now that it is, Atmosphere (and Rhymesayers) are doing it with style. Non-vinyl collectors might want to pick up a copy because three previously unreleased songs from the original Overcast! sessions have been added to the LP.Slug: “Our whole lives, we just thought we would be these local dudes putting out four-track cassettes,” Slug explained. “We didn’t think it would get any exposure outside of the Twin Cities. And so we never looked back. Once it started gaining that exposure, we just started putting out more music and tried to hit the road.“And then we never thought, ‘Hey, let’s do a full-length version of the album’ [on vinyl] until last year. It took up more than two pieces of vinyl because back then people’s records were just too long. So, we decided to throw some extra pieces on the vinyl: three songs which were recorded for Overcast! but got cut. A song called “Broken Rewind Button,” which has me, Spawn and Beyond on it; “Bus Benches” and a song called “Pea King.”

In the whole history of hip-hop music, few groups canclaim to have been as influential and important asJoseph Saddler's group Grandmaster Flash & TheFurious Five. Many of the genre's signature elementsand trademarks can be traced back to the supergroupfounded by the Grandmaster; their discography wasamong the first to feature recordings of scratchingand turntablism, their's was the first to feature songswith political and social commentary, they were thefirst to refer to rappers as "MC's", some might evensay they were the group that first coined the term"hip-hop."Though Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five wasconsidered the number one hip-hop group on theirhome turf of New York City, they only maintained afollowing on a local level, performing and releasingsingles exclusively on the East Coast. It wasn't untilthe release of Sugar Hill Gang's "Rapper's Delight"that the group realized they could break into themainstream. After signing with Sugar Hill Records,the group released their debut album The Message in1982.Bolstered by Flash's deft turntablism, rappers MelleMel, Kidd Creole, and Keef Cowboy's vocals, andproduction which sampled everything from Chic tothe Tom Tom Club to The Jimmy Castor Bunch, TheMessage was a revelation of sorts. More than simplybeing a Billboard hit for the group, the album helpedcement hip-hop's credibility with mainstreamaudiences, and is considered a major achievement inhip-hop history. The album's title track was especiallypraised, and is considered one of the greatest raptracks in music history.

Haverhill, Mass' own Ea$y Money follows up his 2015 debut "The M.O.N.E.Y." with "Flyer Lansky." While his debut featured production from Hip Hop heavyweights like DJ Premier, 9th Wonder and BuckWild, to name a few, Ea$y teams up with his ST. Squad's own Billy Loman this time around. Sticking to the ST./ShowOff formula, "Flyer Lansky" sticks to the traditional East Coast Hip Hop sound and doesn't disappoint. Ea$y also taps some well-respected MCs to join in on the bar-fest. Griselda Records' Conway lends his talents to the grimy "Live By," Termanology, REKS and ST. make it a family affair on the knocking "Run Wild," and fellow Boston newcomers MILLYZ ("Regular Shit"), Prano and Avenue ("Roundtable Discussions") are sure to awaken anyone who thought Boston rappers can't hold their own. Mark this as another notch in the belt for ST. Da Squad and Ea$y Money.

“I just use turntables, vinyl and a MPC, that's it. I always come back to the basics with production because it forces me to be creative. Giving a sense to a melody or a rhythm is a powerful thing and it doesn't happen every day.” Belgium based producer, Koss can be considered a hip-hop purist.His previously released body of work has emulated late 80’s / early 90’s heaters producing EP’s for Craig G (Juice Crew), AG (Showbiz & AG) and El Da Sensei (Artifacts). Now Below System Records (Masta Ace, Phat Kat, Chuuwee & Trizz) will be releasing his official full-length production album entitled “Born To Live”.Whereas the previous EPs was one MC per release, the forthcoming album boasts an all-star line-up of spitters including Torae, Large Professor, Masta Ace, Keith Murray, Blaq Poet, Ruste Juxx, J-Live and Craig G. When asked why he decided to have different features on each track Koss related “I wanted this album to express life and my passion for the Hip-Hop culture. My aim was to choose MCs that no matter what is in style at the moment always stay consistent and remember where they came from.”One of these MCs is the legendary J-Live who appears on the second official single “Straight Up Pretenders.” Speaking on that meeting Koss recalls “I met him in Cologne, (Germany) years ago at my man Saim Smith’s crib. After we were done building and the song was recorded, I had to have Saim do the scratches for the hooks.”The true school vibe of the album even extends to the remixers that Koss selected. “Born To Live” CD and digital editions will feature track remixes courtesy of K-Def (Ghostface Killah, Tragedy Khadafi), Large Professor (Main Source, Nas) and close friends 12 Finger Dan and B-Base.

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Seattle rapper/producer Grieves emerged in 2007 with his independently released album, Irreversible. In the years that followed, he wholly devoted himself to touring, writing and recording, honing his craft and defining his sound. His 2011 Rhymesayers debut, Together/Apart, was a career landmark and a testament to his growth in both, his writing and delivery, and this progression was re-affirmed by his follow-up, Winter & The Wolves, in 2014. Now, after three years, Grieves prepares to reveal further evolution with the release of his new full-length album, Running Wild. On Running Wild, Grieves teamed up with Swedish producer Chords. Together, the two have produced a modernized sound that is lush and intoxicating, pairing punchy drums with thick layers of synths and warm bass lines, all accented by soulful keys, horns, or guitars. Whether dark and moody, or upbeat and jazzy, Grieves navigates and complements the soundscape, penning verses that range from vulnerable and confessional, to fun and carefree. Grieves is most certainly breaking boundaries, truly running wild, all while remaining honest to himself.

Limited CD edition!This three-piece from the Bronx has sadly now only one living member, Arsonists' MC Q-Unique. You should definitely check out this dope early-mid 90's NY project - overseen by ATCQ producer Skeff Anslem. The group didn’t do many shows back then, but they opened for Grandmaster Flash & the Furious 5 while sharing out set with Tony Touch & D-Story, who would later become Q-Unique bandmates in the Arsonists. Q-tip from a Tribe Called Quest invited them on another show up during their set to have a live cypher with them at a Zulu jam in the Bronx River projects community center.MC Baretta & DJ Mel Ice, MC Q-Unique recorded their first and only single "The Ultimate" at D&D studios, the rest was recorded at Platinum Island, Skeff Anselms studio and Groovy Lou's studio.The group never had the chance to grow, because they didn’t really understand the ins and outs of the game to truly play.MC Q-Unique, Mel Ice & Baretta formed the group, The Nomaads in the streets of the Lower East side in NYC, where Mel lived. 1st they started recording demos with a producer that had been working with me named Thomas Owens. Then from that point, Skeff Anselm (A Tribe Called Quest, Brand Nubian, MC Serch and many more) reached out to Mel Ice to build on some music, so they recorded a few demos with him. Through Skeff is where MC Q-Unique started to learn about the biz and he connected with Q-tip who would invite us to the studio while they were recording "Lyrics To Go", just to mention that to give an idea of how "sorta" close they were to possibilities. Then Thomas introduced them to Groovy Lou, who would go on to produce the 1st and only single "The Ultimate" released on a very small record label from the Bronx called VIP hip hop. Tragically during that time Mel Ice passed away. That knocked the remaining members out for a little, when they decided to push on and recorded music with Groovy Lou. Baretta disappeared into the streets and MC Q-Unique did most of the final recordings with Lou. It was at this time that MC Q-Unique met Dstroy from the Arsonists, who invited him to build with the crew.Oddly enough, Groovy Lou ended up disappearing as well, and sadly Baretta passed away, July 15th 2017. The Nomaads was one of the roughest patches in MC Q-Unique’s career but there were moments that made it seem like they were doing something good.

Genre:Hip Hop
Before Dr. Dre and DJ Yella produced Straight Out Of Compton, before Greg Mack and the KDAY Traffic Jams radio show and before Ruthless Records went multi-platinum, it was a teenage Dr. Dre (then known as The Master of Mixology) making amazing mixes of early rap tracks on cassette as far back as 1985. These were the days of The Radiotron, the ‘Cabbage Patch’ dance, and the b-boy inspired hip-hop documentary Breakin’ and Enterin’.Produced in bulk on cassette and sold at open air markets across Los Angeles, the Dr. Dre mixtapes were ostensibly 4-track ‘mash-ups’ of all the newest and dopest records of the time. They had simple photocopied covers but they were raw... and they were incredible. Dre’s tapes were sold at swap meets, which were just organized yard sales held in giant parking lots, like The Roadium. However, it was at these swap meets that Dr. Dre first made a name for himself by simply adding another dimension to the new west coast style of hip hop. The greatest thing about these tapes was that there were so many jams crammed onto each side, yet only a small percentage of them were actually listed on the covers. This was the next level of mixing capabilities – layers upon layers on top of each other that was so technically advanced at the time that it was hard to figure out exactly how Dre created them. The choice of tracks and the passion in which the mixes were created is what made them classic. The Roadium Swap Meet Mixes have an untreated and unprocessed sound that will bring you back to the mid-1980s at a time when hip hop was just getting started.

Genre:Hip Hop
A pioneer of hardcore rap music, one can't talk about the West Coast hip-hop scene without mentioning Todd Anthony Shaw, better known by the stage name Too $hort. A veteran of the genre, Too $hort's discography is one filled with tracks about pimping, drug use, promiscuity, and unapologetically explicit language. His 1985 record “Don't Stop Rappin”' is notoriously one of the first to use the word "bitch" on a track. He's released nearly 20 albums over the course of his 35-year career, and collaborated with artists as varied as Jay-Z, UGK, 50 Cent, Lil Jon, he's even been one of the few musicians to work with both 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G., in the middle of their infamous feud. Too $hort's works were largely a cult phenomenon during the early years of his career, but 1988's “Life Is..” broke him into a mainstream audience, and gave him his most critically acclaimed release. Not to mention his highest-selling to date. The album stood out in its field, at a time when re-sampling old-school funk and R&B singles was the name of the game, Too $hort instead opted to take established riffs and hooks from from those singles and re-create them with studio musicians and drum machines. The album cemented Too $hort's status among MC's, and the title track itself would even be re-sampled in tracks by rappers UGK, hip-hop-influenced rock group Sublime, and even Too $hort himself on later singles.

The lead single from the highly sought-after “Travel At Your Own Pace” features the exclusive, previously unreleased B-side, “Pyramids”. This song includes a rare vocal appearance from Damu The Fudgemunk.This the song's first official reissue and its first appearance pressed on a 45. Both songs packaged in full color double sided cover art. Known to many as the group Y Society, Insight the Truncator and Damu the Fudgemunk celebrate 10 plus years of friendship and a creative partnership that hold the two in high esteem of their fans. The MC & producer's new 7" is a compelling display of why the duo have always been at the top of their game despite their reserved output since debuting as a team in 2007.Surprising the world at the top of the year with their full length, "Ears Hear Spears" was a great way to sound the alarm for the excitement of new activity. Selective by nature, Insight and Damu's calculations have served advantageous in making moves and presenting listeners with the right music at the right time. The latest incarnation of this truth can be heard in the previously unreleased b-side track entitled "Pyramids to the Ghetto." Although it was recorded in 2008, it was archived and remained unreleased until now. Now in 2017 this particular song couldn't be any more relevant in how the artists analyze the effects racism of the past & present and its correlation to black plight throughout the Americas (both Insight & Damu drop verses on this track).Continuing narratives of such legends as Public Enemy and Jeru the Damaja in which the track title quotes, the group individually presents short essays in rhyme form that give a candid account of what they've witnessed as black U.S. citizens living in the 20th and 21st Century. Not only are the social effects on the table for examination, but the positive and negative impacts a racist society has had on black contributions to art and culture are discussed. For the songwriters, "Pyramids to the Ghetto" is therapeutic in which harsh realities are confronted in an unapologetic manner contrasting the previous socially charged material in Insight and Damu's back catalog.For the listeners, it's a history lesson and a call to motivate us all that history doesn't always have to repeat itself even when it's been the norm for centuries. Adversity and oppression historically have hold some back and made some stronger, but acknowledgement is the first step of progression. The A-Side, "Never Off (On & On)" speaks on just that. It's a roadmap to dealing with everyday adversity, maintaining faith in self and striving to reach your full potential. Insight presents sermons of encouragement to the everyday person over the Fudgemunk's uplifting beat. The producer chimes in on the chorus with a few words of his own that insists to keep on your path and never fall off. The old saying goes, "Life ain't easy", but the group knows success is not unrealistic. "Never Off (On & On)" was the debut single from the debut album, "Travel at Your Own Pace" which has remained a staple in Insight the Truncator's and Damu the Fudgemunk's legacy.

“The California Colors EP” is a pilgrimage to a sacred place. The trio Ernie Fresh, Mophono, and legendary electro producer Egyptian Lover bow at the altar of the artform, offering only the realest expression of the elements. It’s is the four elements, graffiti, breaking, emceeing and deejaying, in harmonious, head-nod bliss. From Ernie Fresh’s dedicated toast, “this one is going out to all the straight up, motherfucking b-boys,” the “California Colors EP” calibrates to a symposium dedicated to the breakers on linoleum, and the renegade artists that paint in rustoleum. The title track is a head trip down the krylon aisle as Fresh dreams of Oxnard Oranges and Gardenia Greens he’ll ignite to the shell of a clean train. Fresh is most notable as the ring leader with the Rakim cadence on DJ Shadow’s “The Sideshow” from 2016’s The Mountain Will Fall, but he’s cut his teeth in Northern California as a member of the group Who Cares. Behind the boards is San Francisco producer Mophono and the legendary Egyptian Lover. The two producers encapsulate a sound that feels like the result of getting lost in video clips of Detroit’s legendary The New Dance Show footage. “The California Colors EP” is a living time capsule of electro futurist production, particularly Egyptian Lover’s mastery of the 808. It’s the result of Mophono obsessing over Kraftwerk’s “It’s More Fun To Compute” and Just Ice’s “Little Bad Johnny,” only to arrive at legendary Rusk Studio in the presence of creator of “Egypt Egypt.” “The California Colors EP” is dedicated to the ones that grew up on Rapmasters tapes in their Walkmans, clipped to their shorts as they pedaled through the neighborhood on BMX bikes. It’s for the ones that snuck out through the bedroom window at midnight with a Jansport full of krylon cans. If you had a black book with no blank pages or a mountain of D batteries in the waste bin, this EP will have you seeing colors as bright as the fresh paint on a burner.

Genre:Hip Hop
Seattle rapper/producer Grieves emerged in 2007 with his independently released album, Irreversible. In the years that followed, he wholly devoted himself to touring, writing and recording, honing his craft and defining his sound. His 2011 Rhymesayers debut, Together/Apart, was a career landmark and a testament to his growth in both, his writing and delivery, and this progression was re-affirmed by his follow-up, Winter & The Wolves, in 2014. Now, after three years, Grieves prepares to reveal further evolution with the release of his new full-length album, Running Wild. On Running Wild, Grieves teamed up with Swedish producer Chords. Together, the two have produced a modernized sound that is lush and intoxicating, pairing punchy drums with thick layers of synths and warm bass lines, all accented by soulful keys, horns, or guitars. Whether dark and moody, or upbeat and jazzy, Grieves navigates and complements the soundscape, penning verses that range from vulnerable and confessional, to fun and carefree. Grieves is most certainly breaking boundaries, truly running wild, all while remaining honest to himself.

Genre:Hip Hop, Electronic / Dance
In a city famed for its disparate and varied musical excellence, the Detroit-based alignment of feted electronic artist and producer Shigeto aka Zach Saginaw and rapidly rising Bruiser Brigade member ZelooperZ is an entirely natural thing. Introduced by mutual friends in the city, an instant bond was formed, and ZGTO was born. A Piece Of The Geto is out August 4th on Ghostly International, with a limited edition vinyl pressing by Third Man Records.For Shigeto, this is the first time he's musically stepped out of the box of a solo artist and worked with a vocalist on a project. There is a ''less is more'' philosophy with the production where the vocals of ZelooperZ are seamlessly interlaced into the fabric of the beats. It's minimal in a sense, but the emotion felt through the words of ZelooperZ makes the songs as a whole intense and heavy with sentiment.

US Hip Hop

Wer hätte vor über 40 Jahren gedacht, dass US Hip Hop einen solch immensen Einfluss auf die Sprache von Generationen ausübt? Amerikanischer Hip Hop entstand in den frühen Siebziger Jahren, den Grundstein legte DJ Kool Herc mit seinen Block Partys. Anfangs sorgten MCs noch für die verbale Unterstützung der DJs, doch schon bald drängten sie sich in die Hautrolle. Spätestens als der SP1200 den TR-808 verdrängte, konnten HipHop-Kids mühelos Zeilen der wichtigsten Wortakrobaten zitieren. In der zweiten Hälfte der Achtziger Jahre mauserte sich US Hip Hop von einer Subkultur zu einem globalen Hype. Zuerst in den USA, dann in Europa und Japan…

Die Golden Era des US-Rap

Slick Rick brachte das Storytelling auf die nächste Stufe, Public Enemy mauserten sich zum politischen Sprachrohr der Schwarzen Gemeinde. Die Ultramagnetic MC’s gaben textlich und musikalisch einen Vorgeschmack auf den US Hip Hop der Zukunft. Das Kollektiv Native Tongues stellte die besonnene Alternative zur Sprache der Straße dar. Und bald entdeckten Produzenten wie DJ Premier, Large Professor, Pete Rock oder Q-Tip Jazz als Sample-Quelle. Während an der East Coast die Rapper mit großem Vokabular wetteiferten, zelebrierte man an der Westküste den Gangsta-Rap. Mit durchschlagendem Erfolg, was man schnell merkte. Mit Kool G Rap oder Schoolly D gab es an der Ostküste bereits MCs, die vorher wortgewandt den Lifestyle eines Gangsters thematisiert hatten, doch Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren, Dr. Dre und DJ Yella waren radikaler, offensiver, einfach lauter und medienwirksamer.

US Hip Hop von den 1990er Jahren bis heute

In den Neunziger Jahren entwickelte sich US Hip Hop dann zu einem Massenphänomen. Die Beats aus dem MPC und clevere Wortspiele begeisterten die Massen. Rap Tracks führten nicht nur die Hip-Hop Charts an. Mit Hilfe von Biggie Smalls definierte Puff Daddy den Mainstream neu. Heute sind einige der Golden Era-MCs der lebende Beweis dafür, dass man auch im gehobenen Alter noch fesselnde Reime abliefern kann. Bei diesem Thema fallen einem sofort Namen wie KRS-One, Kool Keith, Kool G Rap, GZA, Pharoahe Monch, Freddie Foxxx, Sadat X oder O.C. ein. Und auch nach über 25 Jahren im Geschäft rocken Produzenten wie Pete Rock, Large Professor oder DJ Premier noch das Pult im Studio. Neue Künstler aus allen Regionen der USA kreieren ihre eigene Version des US Hip Hop und begeistern sogar eingefleischte Old Schooler. Aber auch wenig beachtete Rapper aus den Neunziger Jahren gelingt manchmal erst im höheren Alter der Durchbruch. Has-Lo, Roc Marciano, KA, Billy Woods, Crews wie Pro Era, Odd Future oder A$AP Mob und frische Gesichter wie Your Old Droog oder RAST RFC drücken der amerikanischen Rap-Musik heute ihren Stempel auf. El-P, Apollo Brown, The Alchemist oder L’Orange beleben währenddessen die Sound-Landschaft des US Hip Hop. Und von generationsübergreifenden Gemeinschaftsprojekten profitieren MC, Produzent und Fans.
