EP: Corey Gipson x Wrathmatics – Keep It Human


Corey Gipson and Wrathmatics (40eighty, A Charlie Brown Beat Tape, The Crates Of Wrath Vol. 1) come through with their 10 track EP, Keep It Human. Weighing in at 30 minutes, the EP consists of Corey entirely holding down the vocals (minus one Wrathmatics guest verse) while Wrath’s sample driven instrumentals and mixing skills play the backdrop. Another interesting take is that Corey hand painted the cover art on canvas along with 7 other originals that are available for purchase on the Corey’s bandcamp page. said this about the project, “When it comes to music, it is fairly hard to find people with great chemistry in combination with thier producers and engineers. But no with Corey Gipson and Wrathmatics.” From coast to coast, press play to enjoy some of the most rare hip hop in the world and Keep It Human.


Free Beat Tape: DJ A to the L & Big Lo – Potatoes As Weapons

“Earlier this year Big Lo went on the road and did some tour dates up and down the east coast. I joined him at a couple of gigs, in Charlotte, NC and Nashville, TN, to hold down the turntables, and as we travelled between venues we started plotting and planning a new project. So… here it is – ‘Potatoes As Weapons’ features original beats, manufactured by Big Lo, and then mixed together by yours truly. It’s a short listen – 30 minutes or so, so feel free to toss this on while you’re doing your morning run / taking your evening dump etc etc. It also worked out so well that we’re planning to do another few volumes over the next couple of months, so stay tuned, kiddies.” DJ A to the L


Album: Funkghost – Caviar Taste


Grand Extravagant Entertainment released the full length LP by Funkghost entitled “Caviar Taste”. The 13 Song LP is now available for digital download on all major digital outlets.

Showcasing Funkghost’s witty braggadocio lyrics, slick arrangements, and deliciously plush production, “Caviar Taste”offers a mixture of Rap/Hip-Hop/Soul/Funk/R&B/Gospel/Electro/Trap reverberations. Funkghost manages to push creative boundaries while at the same time keeping it accessible and effectively delivers a smash LP.

“Calling to mind a bit of Kanye, only with less passive-aggressive megalomania, “Caviar Taste” is smart, fun, accessible, original, quirky, and possessed of an irresistible melodic structure. It’s got biting cred, ass-shaking grooves, but is also the kind of idiosyncratic thing fans of recent envelope-pushing peers like Pharrell, and the aforementioned Luis Vuitton Don will take to immediately” – Colin Kincaid – REAX Magazine

“Caviar Taste” boasts a wide range of musical influences ranging from French electronic music Duo Daft Punk, Japanese vocal/Hip-hop/instrumental group TAMAONSEN, The late Jazz composer/pianist Weldon Irvine, Kanye West, and Marvin Gaye to name a few. “I wanted the album’s overall feel to reflect my personal tastes and opinions” insists Funkghost. The album’s subject matter explores consumer and pop culture, race, religion, relationships, and personal life assessment.

Free Mp3: MC Bravado (ft Soul Khan & C-Nature) – Infinite/Finite (Man Comes Around)


“Infinite/Finite (Man Comes Around)” is the first song off of MC Bravado’s Johnny Cash Tribute/Conceptual EP “Walk the Line.” The track features Soul Khan of the Brown Bag All-Stars as well as production from Militant Marxman and a guest appearance from C-Nature, both of MC Bravado’s own Cypher Junkies crew. Its release date (September 12) marks the 11 year anniversary of Johnny Cash’s passing. The song addresses Johnny Cash’s spirituality as well the premise of “if the gates were to open tomorrow, would you be on the outside looking in?” It sheds light on the ambiguous line of morality that we all walk as people and candidly speaks upon the pros as well as the potential pitfalls of organized religion; despite the song’s heavy subject matter, it contains quite a bit of humor as well. You can expect the first video off of the project in a couple weeks and the “Walk the Line” EP itself on October 13 (the same day Cash was inducted into the CMA Hall of Fame) on Bandcamp. For now, enjoy the new single as a free download on Soundcloud (Mixed and Mastered by Marc Beatz [Triple 8 Music] and Andrew Bryan [Fill in the Brand]).
