Our prodigal co-founder Blast has been heavily hyping Lukah Luciano’s Badguy X Goodfella, I think he might be onto something here. This video was the first single from that album.

Skipp Coon – It Is What It Is (Spirituals Remix) from Southern Cult on Vimeo.
 
Skipp Coon channels Sun Ra for a really great video remix of one of the tracks from the Sophomore Slump Vol. 1: Independents Day EP. You also need to check out the recent Miles Garvey EP if you haven’t yet, its a great EP which will likely end up as one of my favorites for this year.

Nice loosie via The Martorialist/Philaflava. Phenomenal dark techy beat on this one.
 

Hus Kingpin – Sky Walk (ft. Rast RFC) (Prod. Camoflauge Monk)

Taken from Hus Kingpin’s Nah Right Hype LP, which is a solid set of grimy NY rap that should appeal to fans of Roc Marciano and Willie The Kid. Great to see Rast starting to jump on features too.
 

 

Salva – Moves To Make Ft. Problem

I’ve had mixed feelings about Salva’s previous work with rappers, but this one really hit home as a great homage to classic West Coast rap. The last minute is a full-on tribute to the Chronic.
 

 
Taken from Salva’s Peacemaker album, available for download HERE.

WEED! STRIPPERS! MORE WEED! MORE STRIPPERS! What’s not to like.
 
The long promised but much delayed Doobie Brothaz album finally drops tomorrow.
 

6 Demon Bag (D-Risha & That Purple Bastard) – The Last Man (ft. Kidd the Great)

This is from an EP called Giallo, which isn’t always my favorite subgenre of Euro-cult but it definitely has some gems, so I’d listen to this just based on name alone. Also, both of these guys already have good track records both separately and working together, so this is an all around solid bet for some good mildly conceptual indy rap.
 
EDIT: THE WHOLE EP IS OUT NOW (STREAM BELOW) AND AS EXPECTED IT IS INDEED GOOD AND WORTH YOUR TIME.
 

 

Andre Martel – His Majesty Obscured (Album)

Pretty much the album I hoped Andre would make, the album he’s been working up to since his days as Himself The Majestic, when he was already promising and good but not yet up to his potential. Time allowing I’m going to come back to this to lavish more detailed praise on it, but for the moment I’m just gonna say the dude wrote and rapped his ass off on here to great results. Highly recommended for people enamored with the act and art of rapping, and rappers being able to truly and honestly render their own world in their lyrics and walk you through it.
