Token - Threat (Video)

Salem, MA rapper Token is back again, this time with some visuals for his track "Threat" (which actually dropped on Halloween, so I'm a bit late with this one). The song finds the 16 year old emcee kicking some boastful rhymes about how he is a threat to wack emcees over an aggressive Jon Glass instrumental. Dope shit. Peep it below.

 Boston rapper Stiz Grimey comes through just in time for Halloween with some visuals for his track "Lizzie Borden". The song finds Stiz Grimy telling the haunting story of Lizzie Borden, a young woman who was tried and acquitted for murdering her father and stepmother with an axe in Fall River, MA back in 1892. The story hits kind of close to home for Stiz, who lives nearby to where the murders happened all those years ago. Peep the video below.

Rochester, NY rapper Hassaan Mackey and Washington D.C. based hip-hop producer/emcee Kev Brown come through with the first drop from their upcoming "That Grit" EP in the form of a split video for the tracks "Dope" and "Hassaan Be Rappin".

J Live - Not Listening (Video)

Veteran New York emcee J-Live comes through with some visuals for his track "Not Listening", which is a select cut from his banging "Around The Sun" album that dropped earlier this year. The song is produced by Korede and finds J-Live addressing some of the bullshit that goes on in hip-hop nowadays. Just for the record, I fully agree with everything he is saying is saying on here. Peep the video, as well as the full album, below. Don't sleep.





Fab Soares - Get Down (Video)

Fab Soares - Get Down (Video)

 London rapper Fab Soares is back again, this time with some visuals for his latest track "Get Down". The song is real nice and finds the UK emcee doing his thing over a head nodding boom-bap instrumental. I'm not exactly sure where this one is going to end up, but it's real nice so don't sleep.

Bub Styles - School Zone (prod. by Hannibal King) (Essence of Hip-Hop)

Brooklyn, NY rapper Bub Styles recently dropped a video for his first solo single "School Zone", which is produced by Queens-based hip-hop producer Hannibal King (who has produced for Mac Miller, Joey Badass, Casey Veggies and others). The song is banging and finds Bub Styles spitting fire over a head-nodding instrumental centered around the same sample used on Big Punisher's classic track "Boomerang". I've always wanted to hear someone flip that sample differently so it's really nice to hear Hannibal King's take on it. Anyways, the track is a cut off of Bub Styles' upcoming "Fatboy Sessions" mixtape, which should be out before the end of the year via Hannibal's Villains imprint.

Aslan - Paradox (Video)

Aslan - Paradox (Essence of Hip-Hop)

 UK based rapper/producer Aslan comes through with some visuals for the final installment in his "Paradox" trilogy, which is taken from a three track 12 inch that is available via his website. The song is actually the title track off of the project and is a joint production by Snake vs Crane and Aslan himself. As on the other two tracks, the production is dark and Aslan rips it. Check out the video for "Paradox" below (along with the previously released visuals for "Epitaph" and "Rise Up", which make up the full EP when combined). Very dope.

Reason - Hands Up (Single)



Brooklyn rapper Reason (who just dropped an ill video with Ceazar a few days back) comes through with his latest single "Hands Up". The song is dope and finds Reason spitting some boastful bars over an energetic ALLROUNDA Productions instrumental. If you are not familiar with Reason, he was featured on "The Brewery" off of Raekwon's "Unexpected Victory" mixtape and dropped a nice mixtape of his own back in 2013.

"I wrote this song to motivate and inspire any and everyone going through hardships, whether they be personal or wide-spread obstacles. The world doesn't need to be as dark of a place that it's become, so I made this song to be a light."
Very dope. Peep it above and then hit up his Soundcloud page if you like what you hear.

Apex Zero - Obtain Bearing (Video)



West London emcee Apex Zero just dropped a video for the final release from his ill "Reality Provoking Liberation" album that dropped last year in the form of the track "Obtain Bearing". The song finds Apex kicking some reflective rhymes about his inner struggles and about his drive to make a difference in the world over a mellow piano-based instrumental. By far the most laid back song on the project, it's also easily the most heartfelt. Peep the video below and make sure to read my full review of the album if you like what you hear.
