Rav.P, NatNaiel and Julius Myth are an explosive bunch, each packing a distinctive style that comes together to make a hell of a track. “flyNiggaSayWHA” is somewhat of a posse cut, where each of these up and comers take a turn on the jazzy, string based instrumental. It’s a fast paced track with lot’s of energy and a crisp cut New York sound. I have word that Julius Myth is working on a new project, but I’m not sure what to expect in the near future from Rav.P or NatNaiel. Stream and download below.
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from Julius Myth, and even longer since we’ve gotten new content from SawBuck and DJ So Nice. That’s all coming to an end with a new track titled “Merry Go Round”. This track has some smooth, up-beat production, complete with horns, booming kicks and a catchy melody. Julius Myth and SawBuck lay down some crisp rhymes on top, with Julius also dropping the chorus. It’s a classic track, get it fresh. Free download and stream below, check it out.
Skizzy Mars has been really busy dropping off all of these singles. First with “Moments”, then “All Say”, and lastly “Numb” leading up to a full mixtape release. The twelve track EP seems to be a showcase of Skizzy’s talent, as there are not a lot of features (besides Ms. Jones and Jon Waltz). But that’s just fine, because Skizzy Mars is not short of talent, In fact, he kills every track on the project. With his nonchalant flows and his sometimes stream of consciousness rhymes, he molds a storyline throughout. Stream and download the project below.

the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, esp. as relating to behavioral decisions and attitude change.
Few have the depth and understanding of how life works as Raz Simone. He is constantly pushing the expression of himself at his truest point, spitting truths he has seen and experienced. He’s been there, he’s been a dope boy, he’s been hustling, and he’s come a long way from there. But the evils that come from that sort of life leach on, and can follow you for the rest of your life. Such is the story of his newest EP, Cognitive dissonance.
In the life of such an enigmatic man, there are lots of decisions he has made, and more that he will make that will either make or break him. It’s a constant struggle to choose right, even if it conflicts with his morals or beliefs. I see Raz as a very powerful man, who strongly adheres to his beliefs and holds high regard for his family, friends, and his city. So it is a difficult road for him. But he has pushed through and made the best out of it, Cognitive Dissonance is his story, through all these conflicts.
When listening through the project you can feel these pains, feel his strife and struggle. Raz is a master at conveying emotion, with his rhythmic, raspy voice. With the soul of a poet, he weaves story after story that not only show the downsides of his life, but also his dreams and aspirations. He has the support of his people, and won’t stop at anything to get where he is trying to go.
In terms of instrumentality on this project, they carries a somber mood. While relatively downtempo, Raz’s jazz influences shine through. This is often in the form of horns, trumpets and slow beats. He is very creative with accentual sounds, which increases the draw of this project.
Please, go and support this project. This is real music right here, and a lot of work has been put into it. Share it with your friends, and most of all enjoy it.

A few days back Cunninlynguists did something that is seldom done by them, they released a track not produced by Kno. While this may seem odd, maybe they just couldn’t resist after hearing the infectious, pan-flute filled instrumental courtesy of british producer Thomax. As always, the emcees lay down a top-notch set of lyrics, intricately and well thought out. I’m not sure where this single, ‘Dying Breed’, will end up, but it’s good.
I hear Strange Journey Vol. 3 is on its way as well, so get ready for the new project. I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
