Sean Price & Eddie B – Stop It.

Ignore the terrible artwork. “Stop It” is great background music for casually committing felonies. Download: Sean Price & Eddie B – Stop It (produced by Harry Fraud) (cuts by DJ Buffalo) via Xclusives Zone Time to start checking for Harry Fraud. Bonus: Ill Bill & Steven King – Muzzle The..

KRS-One & True Master – 1-2, Heres What We Gone Do (ft. RZA).

Funny how KRS-One and RZA contradict each other while tryna kick knowledge. KRS knocks corporations and then RZA shouts out Hollywood execs. The most eyebrow raising-line is RZA’s nod to the cops. Few rappers have the ‘nads to take their positive raps that far. True Master provides a dilapidated Wu-Tang..

Choklate – Overdose (ft. Drake) (produced by Tha Bizness).

I wish Drake made a pop rap album in the vein of this track with singer Choklate instead of the hopelessly generic debut that was Thank Me Later. Tha Bizness wrote on their blog, “This Is Not The Official But Its Something We Thought The People Would Enjoy!!” Download: Choklate..

7L & Esoteric – No Shots.

Bemoaning the current state of hip-hop is a tradition as old as hip-hop itself. “No Shots” goes a step further than the usual state-of-the-game assessment by actually naming names. 7L & Esoteric fire an arrow over the widening generational gap and tear into 3OH!3, Wiz Khalifa, Nicki Minaj, Waka Flocka,..

HaloFest, Halo: Reach, Halo-gasm.

The next time there’s long stretch of time when I don’t post anything on ML, you can blame Halo: Reach. Even though I’ve sworn all kinds of unbreakable oaths to the deity known as Nintendo, Halo has dominated most of my gaming time since Halo 3 came out in 2007...

Black Milk – Deadly Medley (ft. Royce Da 5’9,” Elzhi).

Black Milk told us at the listening session that he originally intended to have Jay Electronica on this as well, but couldn’t get a hold of him. I think the song works well as a Detroit affair. Video after the break. Album of the Year drops September 14. Download: Black Milk..

Freddie Gibbs – Something New (ft. YP).

While he was in Chicago this past July, Freddie Gibbs hit the studio and made excellent use of “Bumpy’s Lament” by Isaac Hayes, best known as the sample from Dr. Dre’s “Xxplosive.” Instead of trying to match the mercilessness of Kurupt’s legendary verse, Freddie smooths out his version, but still..

Koncept – Playing Life, EP.

Koncept takes it back to the essentials on Playing Life. He assails the listener with the contents of an extremely refined rhyme book over classically boom bap production from his underrated Brown Bag AllStars crew. Damn, remember when dudes could rap like this? Sphere: Related Content
