Record Store Day Release: Tim Dog 7inch 45 Holy Grail


Flashback to 1990 and UltraMagnetic MC’s are back in the Bronx after an incredible show at Brixton Academy in London, U.K. where they introduced there newest member Timothy “Tim Dog” Blair to the die hard cult European audience. Tim Dog’s mega buzz from his opening debut verse on Ultra’s “A Chorus Line” put him on the A&R radar from everyone from Def Jam’s Russell Simmons, Andre Harrell at Uptown to Chris Swartz at Ruff House.

Tim Dog’s hunger to prove he was more then just one verse landed him and “producer of the year” Ced-Gee and T.R. Love “The Ultra-lab technician” back in the Ultra-lab studio to record Tim’s demo. This demo not only secured the
“hardcore Master’s” record deal but it show cased the dynamic “Fuck Compton” which eventually gave the west coast a super kick in the ass and ignited the legendary east coast vs west coast hip hop war!!

This obscure demo also housed two very dope innovative tracks, “Suckers Never Play Me” and “It’s My Time”!! These two butters are the latest Black Pegasus’ Ultra 7 release, BP702. In classic golden era fashion the masters of the SP 1200 Ced-Gee and T.R. come with uptempo break beats topped with saucey groove chops and a pinch of hardcore cuts and scratches courtesy of DJ I-Roc and T.R. Love. “Suckers Never Play Me” a revved up fast song that borrows a quote from Chuck D. Of Public Enemy for the chorus, while Tim Dog spits braggadocio triple cadence metaphor letting wack MC’s know he can’t be fucked with! The flip side “It’s My Time” uses the park jam break “Assembly Line” by the Commodores finds Tim Dog slaying his lyrical competition as well dropping positive life lesson jewels!!

This 300 copy limited eddition, orange vinyl 7inch release is by far Black Pegasus best release to date!! The real Tim Dog and Ultramagnetic heads now have another classic to add to the crates! Tim Dog may be gone in the physical but his musical catalogue is immortal!!

Album: Red Pill (of Ugly Heroes) – Look What This World Did To Us


The newest signee from Mello Music Group, Red Pill’s debut full length album is finally here. The Detroit native has been described as “unflinchingly grim” and “hilariously self-deprecating.” The new album, Look What This World Did To Us, is an introspective journey, revealing intimate details through unabashed honesty and satirical absurdity. Self-analysis and loathing may come through initially, but what truly impresses about Red Pill is the talent and control of a veteran rhymer.

Having found success in his group Ugly Heroes with Apollo Brown and Verbal Kent, Red Pill’s new album is a project that strives to establish his individuality as an artist. Red Pill’s style garners comparisons that run the gamut in both style and medium, from Atmosphere to Charles Bukowski. The new album is available now.



Joyner Lucas’ project, “Along Came Joyner” finally had its official release and the celebration in hometown Worcester, MA Sunday night shut the club down; standing room only. With that out of the way, and with a full body of work to represent his incredible talent now available, Joyner is ready to reap the rewards one usually attributes to one so gifted. Unfortunately, the search for those is ongoing and, in this latest visual from the first track off the album, “Mansion”, the rhymeslayer parodies an encounter with the mythical Illuminati as he toys with the idea of selling his soul for that which has proved most illusive up to this point. Perhaps next time Joyner should conjur up the ghost of Robert Johnson and get himself schooled on how it’s done. Until then, he will just have to lament poetic about his real life and keep on grinding. Stay tuned!


Free Mp3: Zion I x Locksmith – “Culture Freedom”

Wrapping up his Rapture Tour, Zion I released “Culture Freedom” in collaboration with fellow Bay Area lyricist Locksmith. The track, which premiered via DJBooth, energizes the ears of weary rap fans with clever flows and innovative production by Aagee. “I met him back in the late ’90s on the Wake Up Show,” MC Zumbi says of Locksmith. “I’ve always had respect for his lyricism and it took a couple of years for us to connect.” In February, Mass Appeal debuted Zion I’s The Sun, Moon, and Stars, the third and final chapter of their three EP journey. Embraced as an Oakland mainstay known for advanced lyrical deliveries and a cohesive back-to-the-future musical package, Zion I will perform at Slim’s in San Francisco on April 11 with support from Locksmith and Kev Choice.


With “Culture Freedom,” Zion I and Locksmith strive to keep the hip-hop’s progressive spirit alive. “Just seeing the way that society is so twisted, we as artists struggle with tackling the real issues at hand. Don’t get me wrong, there are MCs dealing with things, but in my opinion there are too many caught up in escapism,” Zumbi says. “It’s our duty to show our youth what we’ve learned along our paths, honestly and sincerely. That’s what we attempted to accomplish with ‘Culture Freedom’…Hip-hop is a tool to empower us, not to limit us and put us back into whatever our oppressor wants us to be.”

Free Mp3: Phenom: “That Dough” (Ft. Add-2)

Chicago’s own Phenom returns with a new single “That Dough” featuring JAMLA artist Add-2 that premiered today with local outfit Prime Fortune. The third single off Phenom’s upcoming album, I Didn’t Come, I Was Sent, the release follows closely on the heels of the LDRS 1354-assisted premiere of “All I Know (Crown)” that hit the public last week. Here, we find Phenom draped in more traditional hip-hop motifs as he pairs up with fellow Chicagoan Add-2 over the fun-loving beat from Rashid Hadee. Check it out at the link above and feel free to get in touch!

Phenom has been a part of the Chicago arts scene over the years as both an artist, poet and community activist and here we get the second single off his upcoming project, I Didn’t Come, I Was Sent. It comes in the midst of a booming spoken word climate in his hometown that has seen Chance The Rapper establish his own open mic program alongside the long-running Louder Than A Bomb poetry competition that is ended last weekend and garnered attention from the likes of Alec Baldwin, Ludacris and many more.


Free Mp3: Carolina Dirty – Respect To Hip Hop Ft Boobie Vandross

“A soulful and melodic track by Carolina Dirty Ft. Boobie V. This song pays homage to hip hop music. Your will want to hit repeat as you ride to this smooth grooving tune created by Mic Beats of SFMG with lyrics so passionate and background vocals that makes a hit. To put it simple, this track is what hip hop has been missing! Pure Essence of hip hop music!”



Single: Clear Soul Forces – Kaboom



Single: Roots Manuva – Facety 2:11

Rodney Smith is arguably the greatest rapper ever to emerge from British shores and after two years locked in the studio brewing up brand new music, he returns now with Facety, a stunning single produced by fellow UK maverick Four Tet. ‘Facety’ is patois slang for someone being rude – a barefaced cheek referenced by the insistent, cockney rhyming lyrical snip – ‘boat race’ – that makes up the chorus.

Another of electronic music’s most exciting voices, NYC producer Machinedrum, provides the beat for the B-Side, ‘Like a Drum.’

In his inimitable words, the single is ‘a wee Spring warmer in voodoo coptic dialect shape shifting: the remit the same as ever in awakening one’s inner, modern-day Sun Ra, ODB and Kate Bush on an overdrive of “doing because we can’t help ourselves…’


Video: Mazzi and SOUL Purpose – “Boroughs To Brussels” f. Chordz Cordero

New Jersey rapper Mazzi & S.O.U.L. (Sense Of Understanding Life’s) Purpose presents the music video shot in Belgium for “Boroughs To Brussels”, his new single featuring Chordz Cordero over a Hypnotic Brass Band Ensemble intstrumental from_Digital Diggin’ 3Minus1, his new EP where he rhymes over beats composed of samples all found online. 3Minus1 is the followup to Digital Diggin’‘s first installment (listen) as well as “Weight” featuring Nore, Smoke DZA and Harry Fraud (listen) and his previous album The Inspection_ which was hosted by Statik Selektah and featured Jadakiss, Vast Aire of Cannibal Ox, Homeboy Sandman and Breezly Brewin (listen). Mazzi has shared stages with Eminem, Big Pun, G-Unit, Ghostface, M.O.P., Slick Rick, Erykah Badu and many more. A portion of proceeds from all S.O.U.L. Purpose albums go to charity, and Mazzi regularly travels to Palestine and Israel for humanitarian work, bringing medical supplies and conducting workshops, talent shows and live performances for youth in refugee camps.
