*New Music* Burgie Streetz - God's Hands(Album)



It's very rare these days, to have an artist tell his story through song with great balance. Burgie Streetz "God's Hands" is just that. The struggle with faith, love, and personal vices are all display for the listener. Tracks like, "Down" "Karma" and "Sinners Remorse" perfectly balance the grit of "Pressure" the braggadocio of "Greater" and smoothness of "Beautiful" All in all, this project is a testament to Burgie's character, and will. "Roll the dice, never mind where they land, it's in God's Hands Check out the project here!

*New Music* Young Rhito - Bitches In My Bath(Mixtape)




New Mixtape from Missouri Rapper, Young Rhito. This project is titled, "Bitches In My Bath" and is the perfect album to vibe out to. My favorites are "All I Need", "First Check", "I Just Caught a Body", and the Hit Single, "Kodak's Free" that features Ugly God. Rhito has came a long way in the short time that I personally knew starting out in Rap and this project shows his growth. Keep it up, Rhito!

*New Music* Eso Tre ft. Tash - Substance Abuse



Los Angeles hip-hop duo Substance Abuse return to hip-hop with their remix EP, Background Music: The Redux. Consisting of emcee Subz and Eso Tre, Substance Abuse present a work that re-imagines some of the classic tracks first introduced on their critically acclaimed sophomore effort, “Background Music”.

Substance Abuse stick to their trade mark style of socially conscious content. The track “Rear View” featuring KRS-One, tackles the futility of trying to embrace a time period that is gone and never will be again, while still affirming some of the timeless values that people cherished during that era. Rear View: The Chase Remix embodies a new take on the track played on DJ Premier’s Live From HeadQCourterz radio show as well as many other reputable outlets.

“Background Music” refers to the state of hip hop today, explains Eso “where the music seems deracinated of the personality and edge that it once had.” It also refers to how our music is construed by the masses, people who generally seem to favor the popular over the obscure. Real hip-hop has been forced to play the “background” to club and dance music that seems devoid of any message or staying power.

After gaining much acclaim for their collaboration with MF Doom on the infectious single “Profitless Thoughts,” Substance Abuse released their debut Overproof in 2006. The album featured Saafir, Kool Keith, Motion Man, Kutmasta Kurt,Rasco, Thes-One, and MF Doom and received critical acclaim from outlets such as YRB, URB, Scratch Magazine,and 944. That album was followed by the classic “Background Music”, featuring Tash, Sadat X, Percee P, Myka Nyne, MC Eiht, KRS-One, and Max Julien (The Mack).

What looms in the background of today’s music scene are people who are fed up with the current state of affairs and want change. If you’re one of them, check out Background Music:

*Album* OG ILLA - ZONE



Newest Album release from Richmond Virginia's own, OG ILLA. I myself have watched ILLA grow from his first project, "!lliteracy" to "L.O.V.E", "Marijuana Made" to this current release. And I all have seen is growth as he untaps his potential in every effort. This album displays a more 'Ratchet' side of ILLA but the talent is definitely there as he coasts on tracks like "Go Up" featuring long-time friend and label mate, Ms. Proper and Ponce DeLeioun, which is one of my favorite tracks on the album. This album has some crazy bangers, though I believe some of the records didn't need features such as "Another One" featuring Dr. Millionare where I feel, Millionare's voice is a bit too barratone for my liking on the record...just me? Oh well.
All I have to say is keep it up ILLA! Keep folks on their toes as these locals don't see that expanding your fanbase consists of switching it up from time to time to stay relevant in this particular culture!
