  • Common – Made in Black America (Feat. Ab Soul)

    By Mason Strehl on February 12, 2014
    Okay, well this came out of nowhere... Common takes time to drop off a new track titled 'Made in Black America' featuring TDE emcee Ab Soul. This politically charged track features a hard beat courtesy of No I.D.. Both Common and Ab spit hard verses for the entirety of the three-and-a-half minute track. For now we just have the LA Leaker's tagged up version, but hopefully we'll get a clean version soon. If you haven't heard, No I.D. and Common are partnering for Com's upcoming album Nobody Smiling. What are you waiting for? Hit play.

  • Yancey Boys – Quicksand (Feat. Common & Dezi Paige) (Prod. J Dilla)

    By Mason Strehl on August 28, 2013
    Yancey Boys, fronted by John "Illa J" Yancey and Frank Nitt release the first single off of their upcoming project Sunset Blvd. All the tracks on this new project will be unheard production from Illa J's late brother J Dilla. You heard right, new Dilla! To join the Yancey Boys on this classic beat is long time J Dilla collaborator Common and songstress Dezi Paige. The beat is the focus here, a smooth acoustic guitar loop with the legendary producer's signature head-nodding drums to back it. It may sound like a classic golden era hip-hop track, but Frank Nitt describes Dilla's production as something else: "This isn’t a nostalgia trip: Dilla’s beats were so future-forward that they’re right on time in 2013." The three emcees deliver solid verses on the track, each dropping a few bars in between Denzi Paige's beautiful chorus. No word on when Sunset Blvd comes out, but we're promised that Dilla's beats will be spit over only by the most skilled emcees, in a way that brings forward the futuristic production in the best way. So far the confirmed features include De La Soul’s Posdnuos, The Pharcyde’s SlimKid3, Slum Village's T3, and DJ's like Rhettmatic, C-Minus, and JRocc. Be on the lookout for more info soon. In the mean time, stream 'Quicksand' below. Purchase: Yancey Boys - Quicksand (Feat. Common & Dezi Paige) (iTunes)
