DSKILLZ HARRIS “SKILLZMATIC” (ALBUM REVIEW/STREAM)

Hip Hop is full of jokers these days, a sick group of culture vultures, it truly is a strange game as we progress thru the next era in music. On the flip side of this , hip hop is starting to blossom from the earth once again as it did with a collective of artist who are true artist, even students of the game with the aspirations of making good music. I introduce DSkillz Harris, a up and coming emcee residing on the Beast Coast , B More to be exact. Dskillz continues his crusade of the perfect blend of new and old school hip hop and maintaining the main ingredient with his ode to the Queens Bridge NY Legend NAS’s 1994 classic “Illmatic” with his own project entitled “Skillzmatic”. Skillz speaks about the current state of most things that are going on in the world, resurrecting the once great conscious emcee. “Free My Niggas” Dskillz along side his DBL brother Devon the emcees explore the darker color of America. Produced by SavionX the track is a sure banger the minute the snaps hit and Skillz touches the mic. Another Savion X produced joint “Wheres The Love” Skillz breaks down his policy on love and does and don’ts. Dskillz versatility really shows on this project, jumping from styles as the album progresses.

“Fatlip” Prod by Mayor Dskillz says fuck .the rap game and intends on staying true to the game denouncing the need for fortune and fame. Dskillz is the emcee that studies the game well, his knowledge of hip hop, past or present is phenomenal and endless. on DMD produced joint “As The World Burns” Skills plays Karl Malone and DMD at point, John Stockton , #12..you get the point no pun intended.

THE EPITOME “TRILL MURRAY” (ALBUM REVIEW/STREAM)

The Trill Murray Album delivers bars that are far from novice but somewhat nostalgic. Let me explain but first let me introduce the emcee. Nerd monster The Epitome dwells humbly in KC and is one of many emcees emerging from the mid west hip hop underground scene. The Trill Murray Album holds much weight with some impressive joints and enough fan far for the otaku hip hop nerds that secretly resides in our hearts. Of these joints on the album “Next” feat Vizionz is a nod to the struggling emcee. Not only is E humble as a hero he also posses the talent to destroy any obstacle in his way and does it over combative raw bars. “Sauske Killed Itachi Just To Gain a Little Power” that line alone will have your fist over your grill yelling whoo. “Letters” Feat Ish1da both emcees convey a deep image of two determined artist both spitting there hearts out on a mellow dramatic piano type beat. “You A Fuck Boy Like A Vatican”…yup. A raw bar pulled from the amped up track “Want It All” feat Bun3 and Ish1da, all 3 emcees attack like a trio of merciless Shoguns. Produced by Vintage Beats the track will surely be great addition to your lit playlist. The Trill Murray album is a solid piece of work ,the structure of the beats and the combination of lyrical content were raw as ever, and don’t forget those sweet one line anime references that will leave all the otaku core webs delighted. Overall it was a hip hop album. Music like this debunks the notion that hip hop is dead…maybe stale and a bit of a mumbling mess but not dead. With albums like Trill Murray arising from the underground It is just a matter of time before people realize this. Make hip hop great and down load Trill Murray today!

LORD SIZZLE – THE NUMEROUS AROMAS OF LORD SIZZLE (ALBUM REVIEW/STREAM)

“The Numerous Aromas of Lord Sizzle,” Lord Sizzles 2nd solo underground experimental hip hop album.The fandom type album is thick and wavy as well as colorful and melodic.The moment the reverb hits the aroma of Lord Sizzles love starts to take over and Sizzle’s rocking flow on Jee Jee produced by Korporal K throws you into a groove that sets the tempo for the lo-fi album. If Dj Screw and Captain Murphy were to meet in some wired alternate universe this would be the the end result. Sizzles taste in music , anime and all things that are nerdy makes this album a must have.

A personal favorite Spaceman Spliff produced by Driver is a pretty sweet groove almost a meditative chorus, Sizzle goes in alone as the one man stoner rhyming over the dream felt beat. Lord Sizzle plays on the senses with a perfect EQ of songs, another standout track was Gundam Slang / The Golden Revolt produced by Brayon Potillo is a S.L.A.B(Slow Loud and Banging) track, Lord Sizzle finesse the beat with a strong grim flow that would make Lil Keke proud. A strong down south influence really gives the EP a great balance of hip hop styles. Lord Sizzle choice in mechanics for his album are top shelf, this is evident on the smash track NAMEK FM produced by underground producer Ezekey.
