Just as dope as Hearin' Aid sounds, also they make dope music!

Isn't that just great? Aaron Phiri & Damon Frost make Hearin' Aid complete, check out their raw hip hop style and beats and hear em' drop some rhymes. Myspace page.

Hearin' Aid were also 2005 winners of Sweden's prestigious P3 Gold Awards, HipHop/Soul category. In addition they are also Grammy and Manifest nominees in the above category for their critically acclaimed debut album, "The Boom Lucy".

About em:
Los Angeles born emcee/producer/drummer/faith healer Damon grew up in Hawaii, two kilometres from Mount Waialiali, coincidentally the wettest spot on the planet, and Berkley, home of the people's power hippie movement of the 70's, a few blocks from Fantasy Records! The Rubberbands dance career led him to Stockholm in 1986. Subsequently it is a career that has made him a respected and recognized figure in the street dance community the world over. He has toured with Jam on the Groove/Rocksteady and Sweden's most renowned street dance troupe, BouncE. Damon is also the 2004 winner of the famed Just Deboute street dance contest in "Popping". Little is known of how he makes his music, but sonically, it is said to resemble his dancing.

Self taught musician and lion tamer, Aaron was born in Lusaka, Zambia, the land that lends its name from the mighty Zambezi River, to a church deacon mother and a speech writer father! He migrated to England in the early 80's where a religious-like encounter with hip hops four elements made him gravitate toward emceeing. He was then teleported to Stockholm, Sweden in 1990 where he was signed to WEA, while only a cherub! He earned himself a formidable reputation as a prolific freestyle emcee/songwriter and chalked up nominations for best newcomer in 1991's now defunct Siljemark Awards as well as a Nöjesguidens Stockholms Pris for best live act in 1997, with 3 Pieces of a Puzzle and Boogaloo respectively. His notoriety led him to introduce a rap curriculum in a Swedish high school, in 2000, where he has been, and is still edutaining. He was also nominated for penning "Love Dat" with labelmates Up Hygh, in Gilles Petersons 2005 Worldwide Awards, "Song of the Year" category.

Apple Juice remind all of you this in case u been sleepin, NOT OK.
Dope project from sweden and it's supa dupa good! So, this is a sweet project called Hygher Baby consisting the wonderful soul artist Melo on the keys & vocals & PURE P (former member of Up Hygh) on the boards. The album is called 'Let Me Play U Something U Have Never Heard' and dropped this mars 09. Its available on Itunes! Show them some love, and lisent to the music it's much recommended, cd is on repeat in my house!

Producer/rapper Pure P who was one half of the hiphop duo Up Hygh that recieved a major buzz in 2006 among big names like ?uestlove (The Roots), Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) & Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1) due to their debut album release. Up Hygh worked with a big mix of internationally known vocalists during thier 3 years together, and even got to remix artists like Bill Withers and Lemar. In that period of time they also did a lot of work with the multi talanted singer Melo which often resulted in classic material such as the song "Get Out My Face". Melo has been involved in a vast amount of projects and releases with producers such as Rasmus Faber, Bugz In The Attic and Simbad. Since Up Hygh's split up in 2006 Pure P and Melo decided to do create something different from their previous work and go for a solid R&B record. And that is exactly what they have done. The album "Let Me Play U Something U Have Never Heard" gives you a soulful shower of strong melodies, warm synthpads, filtered samples and funky bass-lines. The true definition of music from the soul.

Hygher Baby- Won't Get That (From Me)

























A true pop icon & for 'good' or 'bad' a hero in my eyes - Once 'Bad' dropped I wanted to be cool like him and rock that leather jacket like he did. May he rest in peace with the legends upon the sky and let's keep on playin the music forever. Rest in Peace.

If there is one thing the world (and particularly the music business) needs right now, it is people that have the courage to challenge stereotypes. The duo Favorite Flava from Sweden has the intention to do just that and they are determined to get their message out. Favorite Flava's work is groundbreaking, blending influences like Miles Davis, Detroit hip hop and the Nordic folk/jazz music tra
dition. This is drum heavy soul music played straight from the heart with a generous amount of earthy rawness and analog electronics. On top of that a unique tonal language going back to the classical Nordic composers via Swedish folk music to jazz legends Jan Johansson and Lars Gullin. Favorite Flava consists of two individuals: Erik L (Erik Lidén), producer and multi-instrumentalist & Stray(Mattias Axelsson), drummer, producer and singer, has recently released his critically acclaimed album Here To Stray along with a 12” and 7” single, also involved in this project with Paul Mc Innes,Hannah & Caroline.

Kinda funny song, Pac div back with a new video for the song The Mayor from the upcomin LP Church Leauge Champions Blendtape!

They've been talking about it for a minute, but Pac Div's Church League Champions Blendtape should be coming soon. The tape will lead in to their debut LP, Grown Kids Syndrome, scheduled to drop later this year. All the hold ups are more than likely due to Pac Div's electoral campaign, as their new video "The Mayor" shows.

Emcee Zilla Rocca and producer Douglas Martin sure cooked up a classic LP right here, and the best part about it, it’s free! This is a great album by 5'0 clock shadowboxers, with it own sounds they amaze my mind.
That old sound,being inspired of 70's to MF DOOM, Wu-tang and may I hear some Beatles influence? They describe their sound as Grimy, guttural, sample-based hip-hop, prone to psychedelic freak-outs and incredible lyrical outbursts. I can't more than agree.

Sand was given the opportunity to record a song and I shot the video for it. This is technically the first video that I filmed, directed and edited'















Hassaan Mackey im a big fan of him. This cat got some ill rhyming in the bag and great songs. 'War' is a deep song, produced by the one and only Kev Brown.. Check it.

Hassaan Mackey finds his freedom behind bars. His sharp freestyling skills parallel a witty, insightful mind. He pours his heart over beats as he takes us through a journey of his life through inquisition, cynicism, and a spiritual mind that sells his knowledge of self and undoubted sense of purpose. “Soul for Sale”, his latest work, is a priceless tale that is the culmination of a man still standing despite his life’s endless shortcomings, ranging from tragic deaths to the harsh reality of urban living, which he encountered at an early age. An emcee-in-discovery walked the city streets of Rochester, NY as a youth, finding familiarity and comfort in music. The introvert was exposed heavily to an eclectic blend of soul music in all genres. More so through circumstances than choice, Hassaan was being groomed for the better side of life. Diving into music and more noteably, Hip-Hop, he escaped through the headphones with influences such as Tribe, Cyprus Hill, Common and Pharcyde.

Newness from Soulstice, do not sleep.

Chicago emcee SoulStice pairs up with Belgian beatmaker, SBe to deliver this groundbreaking “international concept album.” The songs feature SoulStice alongside talented artists from around the world including the US, UK, Germany, France, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Mozambique, The Congo, and Canada. While the album seeks primarily to entertain, it also captures the thoughts and experiences of these artists and explores themes ranging from the war in Afghanistan and the refugee situation in Sudan to social issues like interracial marriage. “Beyond Borders” is a reminder that hip hop continues to be a mouthpiece for people who exist outside of the mainstream to make their voices heard throughout society and around the world.

Been bumpin this free download-able EP called ' Earth Like Zion Is' for awhile and figured I should feature this beacus this is pure dope stuff. So show support to Nation Of Elzi and download their new EP Now,Today,Right this minute,Now.

Get to know them:
The Nation of Elzi is the newest hip hop formation to come out of Amsterdam.
They are not just one out of many, but the first English rapping Dutch hip hop formation that make music in the neo Hip Hop style. International legends such as Pete Rock, Mos Def, and the men of Slum Village precede them. But now, through the likes of the Nation of Elzi, Neo-HipHop has set foot on Dutch soil.

The group consists out of 3 members who are all producers. Two of the members, Rome & Profetic call themselves the MC’s of the group where as Dangarus. C, has found his groove at the turntables. The Nation of Elzi started in May 2008 under the guidance of Studio West, and are currently finishing up 2 tracks that will be used to promote their EP which comes out in May 2009.
Urban terms such as: hip hop, laidback and soul will soon be mentioned in one breath when people talk about the Nation of Elzi. As luck would have it, the Nation of Elzi got off to a good start and undoubtedly they will take over a large part of the hip hop scene

So i copped the New Classics mixtape by Cook Classics some month's ago, today I bumped into this video of Tunji of Inverse doing a bit of high quality freestyle while being in the studio workin with Cook Classic for the mixtape. Check check.














I been listen to Alliance Crew for a while and they are a dope rap duo.
The first album I heard with Alliance crew was 'Don't know how to exist' which pure bueno real down to earth hip hop. 'Keep it moving' is my favorite track of that album even though' every track is freakin' dope.Now they just dropped their new album called 'Gequence Sunday Lounge' which is a Free instrumental album made in only 6 days! Show support to the Alliance crew from Oregon!

The Alliance Crew is a Northwest Hip-hop group based out of Oregon. Its cofounders, G Force and Rapsodee P., were long time friends before starting the group in 1999. Nine years later and with the addition of DJ Celsius they're sound has continued to expand and mature to the embodiment of a solid Hip-hop trio. With G Force's professional production and unique flow, DJ Celsius's scratching expertise which have gained attention from the likes of such heavy weights as D-styles, and Rapsodee P.'s wordplay and recognition as veteran lyricist, the trio has begun commanding respect throughout the northwest.

Info about the new album by Alliance Crew;

Let me make this short and sweet. We made this instrumental album over the span of 6 days. We copped many records while digging, sifted through hundreds of samples while listening, and chose only a handful to punch in through the MPC. We smoked a ton of weed too lol, but we had mad fun chillin out and vibing to ideas. This was a collaboration between two cats who put music above everything else in their lives. We spent 6 days total making beats and ended up with 19 instrumentals by the end of it. After narrowing it down to 11 tracks we linked up with G Forces ultra dope older brother, DJ Celsius, who laced our joints for that final touch.

The instrumentals on Sunday Lounge were meant to be bumped. We didn’t have time to track out the mpc and fine tune the levels and mixing. Some sound great while others are on some rougher wu-tang style why-did-you-release-it-like-that shit. But you know what? It’s ALL good. We still wanted to share what we came up with no holds barred. With that said, hang up your ipod headphones for this one and turn up the subs. For a 6 day collaboration session, we had a lot of fun and hope you all enjoy.

Its an unfinished demo but hella heavy I just keep on gettin' more impressed about these guy's. The beat, the song is fresh and I just can't wait for more stuff!

Shawn Jackson 'Feelin Jack'... it's just something magic about that song.

This is some real hype stuff.You might remember us postin the video 'Star Struck' which was a super nicely done fan video of Naledge's song. Here is some stuff which I am really exicited about.
So since 'Star struck' was really dope song,You might have to check this one out -OUREARPLUGS

Review:
Liked the songs and even though' some songs goes harder and some track are OK its a tasteful tape, for one Cool Relax ft Jay electronica, Lovin Ya Life goes haaarrrd.
'Chicago Picasso' is a good check out and the songs makes u get deeper in it as the times fly by. Had this album up on my ipod today and I was really excited about hearing it! Played it as i went through my city downtown and I must say it licked my ears purty good (how that sounds)?.
Still tho' my favorite song is Star Struck!

check comments....!!

BUY
