British producer Skitz made one video for both singles for his album Sticksman. The real treat is “Born Inna System” which starts at 1:20. Buggsy rips apart the reggae beat with a demented double time flow. Get the audio here.
Swedish producer Erik L’s left-field beats are light on samples and heavy on synths and electric bass. Given the guest appearance from Frank n Dank, “Push It Up” is easily mistaken for some long lost Dilla shit. This comes from The Soularp Suite which is composed, produced, engineered and mastered by Erik L and is out now. Peep his joint with Sene for some more ill kaleidoscope rap.
The two most strikingly original MCs of 2010 are white: Yelawolf and Eternia.
A white woman from Toronto, Eternia is the last person you would expect to demolish a track with Joell Ortiz. And yet, her brutally personal rhymes almost make Joell sound stale. Eternia explores the female rapper experience from a boom bap angle.
Eternia & Moss – At Last drops June 15. Check out her mixtape.
DJ Khalil laces fellow New Royales member Chin with a remix of his single “Mask on My Face.” Khalil’s beat for this R&B joint is a lighter take on the demonic bangers he handed out to rappers in 2009. Chin’s album D’Tach drops April 6.
Best track off the May 25th mixtape gets a ferocious verse from T.I. tacked on. B.o.B., Tre and Tip rip a stuttering electronic beat by Kuttah to pieces. This is apparently supposed to appear on The Adventures Of B.o.B., which drops on April 27th after years of delays.
As you can guess as soon as you saw the title, I can’t getenough of this stuff. ABC News was able to dig up Merton for an interview. If you are too lazy to watch the two key facts you need to know is the next video is coming out in a few days, and video #1 is the highest rated youtube of all time. Now, stop being lazy and get edumacated about this meme.
9th Wonder (rapping under the name 9thmatic) and Khrysis flex their lyrical muscle over a standard DJ Premier beat. 9th is more comfortable on the mic than I would have expected. Weird to see three producers on one track and only one of them is producing.
