Lennon – Back In The Days [No DJ]

| May 18, 2011 | 3 Comments

Produced by Tye Hill

Project Mayhem’s Prime Minister dropped the very dope Grey Area EP with Vic Lloyd over the weekend in conjunction with his Leaders fitted and the “Drug Dealer Chic” video.  In other words, Len has been busy as of late.  However, not busy enough not to bless us with a tagless version of his stand-out Biggie remake from the project, “Back In The Days”.  But instead of BK, Lennon takes us on a journey through the Westside of the Chi.  This one is serious.

| May 17, 2011 | 2 Comments

As if today couldn’t get any better for the Bogus Boys, after announcing the launch of their new clothing line, as well as the Chicago-tour with Complex Magazine; Count and Moonie had their new single “Handlin My Bizness” added into full rotation on SiriusXM’s Hip-Hop Nation station.  Congrats to them on that achievement, as it’s no easy feat for a duo on a super-indie label (InfaredMusicGroup).  So cheers to them and La’Flare for that look – and for releasing the tagless version of the single.  Now that’s handling business.

If rap don’t work (but it’s proven it has – for upwards of 20 years), it appears Twista has a sidegig he can fall back on: Ventriloquist for hire.  He even has his alias ready to roll-out:  Twista The Ventriloquista.  Here he shows off his skills with a gift his partner B-Hype  laced him with.  He’s outstanding.  Word to Shaq.
