Get Right.

More singles and videos for my legions.

Kid N Play

The man responsible for one of the most popular choices for “Hip-Hop Album on ’09” hasn’t stayed out of the news for two long. Perhaps if Scotty is finished with punching fans, dissing Nardwuar and getting all aggy about industry politikin’, he can get back to what he does best. Here he goes in on a Vampire Weekend sample. You be the judge. Peep the “video” (that really has cats living away from the Great Green White North feeling real nostalgic about now) at the link below.

Kid CuDi – CudderisBack (Video)

Funk Doc

It’s been a sizable chunk of time since I’ve listened to anything from Redman other than a throwback. With the release of his new effort Reggie Noble 9 1/2 pending, it sounds like Red is back on his bullshit.

Redman – Oh My

Stat and Cons

I admittedly have a substantial bias against YTs on the mic. But some of my pasty comrades put in heavy work behind the boards. Clearly inspired by Primo and the Gods of the Golden Era, Statik Selektah has become one of the most consistent producers in the game. Here, Consequence provides some bars for Selektah’s 100 Proof due February 2nd.

Statik Selektah f/ Consequence – Life is Short

The Apple Stay Rotten

Three the hard way. Pause. Tony, Chef, and The Aziatic go in on a grimy Green Lantern beat for an upcoming compilation project from DJ Kay Slay (FUCKING FAGGOTS!) in stores February 9th. Thankfully, The Drama King doesn’t need to ruin this one with his drops. Straight New York. Minus points for the wack cuts on the hook.

DJ Kay Slay f/ AZ, Raekwon & Ghostface – See The Light

The Slaughta Continues

Slaugtahouse frenimies Mouse Budden(s) and Royce (still one of the most underrated) go head to head over production from Soulsearchin. Punchlines for days. Tell me these dudes can’t rap.

Royce da 5’9 and Joe Budden – 40/40

BAWSE

Say what you want about Officer Ricky, but dude stays productive. Rawse embarks on a sequel to Deeper Than Rap‘s street single “Mafia Music,” produced this go round by The Olympiks. I’m reluctant to admit I’m a big fan of Ricky, but his flow is masterful, he’s displayed a pertinence for creating deep tracks with a definitive epic quality like this one, and Deeper than Rap was one of my favorite releases of 2009. He’s growing as an emcee, and his wordplay is getting nastier with each release. I’m patiently waiting on Teflon Don, the apparent source of this gem.

Rick Ross – Mafia Music

Quit Playin’ Them Childish Games With Grown Men

Another drop from Consequence, this time with everyone’s favorite fratboy by his side. Mr. Attic with a standout beat, Statik Selektah on the cuts. Cons’ new mixtape Movies on Demand dropping next month. Sample on this be rugged like Rwanda.

Consequence f/ Asher Roth – Childish Games

Finding Forever Again

An unreleased cut from Lonnie’s Finding Forever recording sessions. Com still goes hard – pause – but peep the way that producer Kareem Riggins deploys the sample on the beat. Detroit stand up.

Common – Next Time (Unreleased)

A Milli

No Weezy. AZ reappears on this leak from a forthcoming project. Produced by Toronto native and frequent Ghostface collaborator MoSs, scratches again by Statik Selektah.

AZ – I’m Ill

CANCON

A double header of material from my home and native land.

First up, a MTL-TO connection. Two of the most recognizable figures on the Canadian hip-hop landscape (sorry, J-Beats) link up for this one, as Fool’s Gold boss A-Trak laces Drake and Cash Money comrades’ “Money to Blow” with a higher tempo, electro beat. A-Trak’s remix works well, but save the hard drive space if you are not a fan of club music. If you don’t understand the title of this one, off yourself or wiki that business. Be on the look out for A-Trak’s Dirty South Dance Vol. 2.
A-Trak – Loonies to Blow

Take this man off the milk carton. A staple of the Toronto hip-hop scene reemerges with a strong single that has garnered buzz mainly because of the 6 degrees: producer Tone Mason is rumored to be handling the upcoming Hov collabo for Drake’s highly-anticipated debut Thank Me Later. If this is any indication, it should be something to look forward to.

Saukrates – Wednesday

BONUS

For my fellow loop diggers, this one is a treat. If you ever questioned RZA’s genius, take heed. Dude’s ear for samples is straight tiger style. Inside the mind of The Abbot.
