New Music: E Major – New Day

new-day-email-image

New track from my forthcoming EP length mixtape where I’m going in over Madlib beats. The 2nd from said project. Expect the whole thing to drop around the end of spring/beginning of summer. I start out writing these things with the intent of simply doing some wordplay and shit talking and while I do plenty of that, so far these “freestyles” have been peppered with an unintended self reflection. I keep taking stock of my personal relationship with Hip Hop. It’s kind of interesting. But it’s like I say in this particular track “I guess I use it just to ask questions/ to take out my aggression and to bask in my obsessions.”

Mixtape: Ramaj Eroc – #TheLobby

This is the first time that I’m posting about the good brother Ramaj Eroc but it won’t be the last.  Ramaj hit me up about getting on a song with him and after peeping some of his joints and seeing the level that he’s working at, I had to get down!  That track, however is NOT on this mixtape.  In fact this isn’t even the official mixtape, The Last Train to Japan.  It’s an “unofficial” mixtape.  I don’t know what that means but if this is the unofficial one, then the official one is gonna be stupid!  This joint right here has a nice balance of straight ahead hip hop shit and some experimentation.  Ramaj is a more than capable MC with an relaxed flow and a good voice.  You can download it by clicking here.  #TheLobby might just have you waiting for the The Last Train to Japan.

Cookbook – Original Recipes Mixtape

Our homies Heroes 4 Hire (whom you probably know from Make It or Know That) have a beat on the new Cookbook mixtape. Cookbook is one of the founders of the hip-hop group L.A. Symphony.  They’ve done some other work with Cook but this is the first to make it out for the world to hear.  It’s so dope that they have a track on this and it’s mixed by none other then Revolution!  So dope. I’m very proud of the Heroes!  Download the entire mixtape here and leave a comment with your thoughts.
