Another new upcoming release is from Outsidaz member Young Zee. His collaboration with producer Mr. Green, “One Crazy Weekend”, is due out July 10th. Zee has always been one of the best rappers who doesn’t get nearly enough acknowledgement that he deserves. So head on over to Amazon or UGHH to pre-order your copy now. Support the real.
Kendrick Lamar recently touched down in London for two sold out shows at the Camden Ballroom - his very first in England. Sadly they’d been sold out for months and me and my homie were beyond pissed we couldn’t get tickets but alas we couldn’t go.
Luckily Soul Culture managed to capture this incredible performance of “Cartoon & Cereal” and the crowd went apeshit.
After hearing “a lot of beats that moved my pen,” Hieroglyphics MC Casual decided to team up with Ohio producer J. Rawls on a new project. The album, “Respect Game or Expect Flames,” is due out August 28th on Nature Sounds. J. Rawls tells fans to expect a new sound: “I changed my style a lot for this album… I’m known for having a jazzy sound, but some of these tracks are more edgy. It fits Casual’s style and attitude.” You can hear the first single, “Give Respect,” at the link above. Follow @SmashRockwell & @J_Rawls on Twitter.
