Termanology Releasing New Project "Time Machine" September 22nd

Term in my opinion is one of the most underated lyricist out. FYI, he also is the younger brother of producer extraodinaire, Primo. I had an opportunity of going to one of his shows @ the Sonar last year sometime. The kid has some skills, be on the look out for his new album coming soon.

Less than a year after the release his official debut, Politics As Usual, Termanology returns with Time Machine (Hood Politics VI), on September 22 through his own ST. Records. Its been a busy year for Termanology. Since the September 2008 release of his well-received debut, which featured production by DJ Premier, Hi-Tek and Pete Rock, Term has toured extensively. He opened for Method Man and Redman on the nationwide Still High Tour and headlined his own 2009 European Tour. Time Machine falls somewhere between an album and a mixtape. It features production by Don Cannon, DJ Premier, The Alchemist and Large Professor. Joell Ortiz, Lil' Fame and Sheek Louch make guest appearances. Be on the lookout. Peace

J. Cole- The Come Up Mixtape Vol. 1 and The Warm Up

For all who are not familiar with J. Cole, he is the Roc Nation's first signed artist courtesy of Jay-Z. Born in Fayetteville, North Carolina, I can honestly say that J. Cole is one talented young MC, his sound is refreshing and lyrically he is a beneficial addition to hip hop. Props to his success and his two mixtapes that I am currently bumping in my whip. Before we are artists, we are fans and its inspirational to see a dedicated artist as Cole, getting his turn. Peep.

Raekwon- Only Built For Cuban Linx II Review via (HHC UK)

This blog is courtesy of my nigga Lucky AKA Mark Milly

My homie Sumitwas blessed wih the opportunity to hear the complete copy of Raekwon's "Only Built For Cuban Linx 2" and has a pretty good review of it.

A few hours ago, I had the pleasure of being the only blogger/journalist/anyone who has had a chance to listen to the much anticipated “Only Built For Cuban Linx 2″. Every since speaking with Raekwon the last time he was in town, I’ve been very excited to hear this project and honestly, it doesn’t disappoint.Below are just some of my thoughts. At this stage, I don’t have titles for the tracks but do have most of the features and production credits. Hope you enjoy it.

The album starts with a skit. The beat is soulful, very smooth. A voice that begins to speak. Its Papa Wu and he’s speaking to the rapper.

“Yo Rae, that you baby, heard all these things about you … we went through so many trials and tribulation, watch the people that cheat you”. Not only is Papa Wu dropping knowledge, but he reminds the listener just how far the rapper from Staten has come.Already from the sound of the track and the opening skit, it sets up a mature album without the raw, gritty sound we are familiar with on Only Built For Cuban Linx. Rae has gone through so much and hes taken it in his stride.

Track 1

Starts off with the classic Shaolin fighting sounds. I think to myself, this is a RZA beat. As the upbeat track is in full flow, I’m still thinking this is a RZA beat. I’m completely wrong, its actually a J-Dilla beat. Already bopping my head, Rae fires some dope rhymes and some swagger “I’ve always been an ill dude”. Ghostface then rolls through and adds some style. Method Man is also featured on this joint. This is the album version, but the single version which will drop next week will have GZA on the hook. Its called “Flying Daggers”

Track 2

Pete Rock produces this next street and grimey track. Its a street tale and its vintage Raekwon.He’s looking to make that paper. One line he raps “I haven’t got my money yet”

The third track on the album features Erick Sermon. It has good chemistry. This is followed by what I’m guessing will be called “Its cold outside”. It has the hook from Rainy Days “Its cold outside” but essentially the track is about Raekwon and everything he’s faced from his street life, his music right through to the present. It also features Ghostface.

Track 6 on the album is produced by the legendary RZA with a rich sounding record. “That black Mozart shit right here”, that’s a lyric that sums up the track.

This is followed by a skit with Raekwon flossing. “yo where them Levi’s at”. He picks out some Gucci.

Then the album goes into some vintage Raekwon and Ghostface. The chemistry is still there, they compliment each other very well. It has an old school feel to it. This is followed by Criminology 2.

Conscious-The MC

The lone star in a galactic passage where passion defies the odds of reality. I am the genesis and I am the last trilogy. In a double standard relationship, I live, I love the music I cherish amongst the irrelevant sounds of our universe. I long for its matrimony, yet my heart is with the woman of my dreams. My inspiration to whom I am her understudy. Two passions, two loves. It is I, A polygamist in a sense. For there is no room for trial and error. This is who I am.

Hip-HopHip-Hop Is More Than Music, Hip-Hop Has Crossed Cultural Boundries That Other Music Genres Never Crossed. Hip-Hop Is Not Only The Music You Listen To, But The Way You Walk, Talk, Dress And Act. Hip-Hop Is A State Of Mind, An Entire Generation, Thirty Years Strong. We Are The Hip-Hop Generation. Rap Is What We Do,. . . Hip-Hop Is How We Live.
