Dirt Platoon- Deeper Than Dirt LP

Dirt Platoon brings the raw, gritty sound of Baltimore's inner city streets to life on "Deeper Than Dirt". The album begins with an ode to the street the two brothers grew up on, "Pennsylvania Ave.", which draws a stamp of approval from street legend and "American Gangster" Melvin Williams, who makes a cameo in the video. The album continues with aggressive, in-your-face lyrics, as Dirt Platoon stake their claim in hip-hop and prove that "these other rappers is garbage, the match-ups be uneven". These multi-dimensional emcees also show that they aren't all brute on tracks like "Raven" and "Long Time No C" as they discuss interactions and relationships with the opposite sex. Whether it's a braggadocious rap, an introspective look into the gutter, or a song for the ladies, Dirt Platoon's superb lyrical ability and robust metaphors prove to be a testament to songwriting.

"Deeper Than Dirt" carries a cohesive, addictive sound that rings true with hip-hop purists and true schoolers. Tom Delay puts his masterful touch on a number of beats including "1st Hand" and "Almighty", bringing a lively, unique feel to the album. Philly producer Fel Sweentenberg also makes his mark on the project, providing bass heavy bangers for songs like "Rapid Fire" and "E.L.A.I.N.E.".

The entire record paints a picture how hip-hop was, and how it should be, as the producers take sample chops to another level and the emcees use modern techniques of emceeing to talk about their lives and to just plain spit. With features only from L.E.G.A.C.Y. of the Justice League, Brake Fast emcee Mic Brown and vocalist Kate Nudo, Dirt Platoon show their lyrical prowess in 12 tracks of the type of music that many hip-hop artists aspire to make. "Deeper Than Dirt" is that unfiltered, uncut, hip-hip from the heart.

Its all love though and shout out to the MC that took the whole thing. I will be sharing some footage of the past event and how I advanced myself to the final stage of the tournament. Enjoy these vids. Peace

Domestic Radio

We subconsciously live our lives according to that FM broadcast
now days...
Those most frequently delivered sound waves
that only in a perfect world cannot be downplayed...
puts us in a profound state with uncontrollable depths

These lyrical references, we try to exhibit in our relationships
but instead we do the opposite or play a part of the song's literal

While he stares at her ass, his train of thought is
damn, my chick bad
But her frame of mind is that he loves her beyond the physical...
so her train of thought is he's everything to me
because he feeds her mentally with fabricated truths and feelings
impairing her perception to whom she feels a connection

He tells her that "these other women have nothing on you"
However, he insist to his boys "I just want her to be my little freak"
so as he creeps with the next woman, he avoids
the relationship from being over
as he talks with the game of a professional commentator
just for entry into her sacred temple

He tells her, "welcome to my sex room"
to her its unthinkable, but she's just as foolish
as she discovers that he can't even hold an intellectual conversation
so when she tries...she waits for his response...*sighs* and replies
"say something baby"

but no words project with substance...

As he gets too comfortable with her presence
he verbally and physically attacks her
and I bet the neighbors know your name the way you're
punching, beating, as she's constantly yelling and screaming...
for you to stop the abuse

Everything has changed...

His sex therapy is no longer sensual
and when he bust it wide open its more like blatant
unforgivable rape
and we've all became victims, but she's been so scarred
that now she believes that she is inferior to all men

so when they ask her how low can you go?
She proceeds to drop her panties...quick to give it up
observing fellas in a beamer, benz or bentley
and quick to tell them, "come here rude boy, can you get it up?

Lost in her individuality, she has succumb to her weakness
life extracted by a man who has claimed dominion over her
pride and dignity
it kills me to see how it is so easy for us to destroy
yet so complicated to build one another up

But we just continue to live our lives according to that FM broadcast
now days
these most frequently delivered sound waves
that only in a perfect cannot be downplayed
