Jaysaun Steps Out On His Own

Saturday, July 31st, 2010


“I never thought that people wanted to hear just me like that, but as my career developed, it turned out that they did,” says Jaysaun. We’re talking at his plush new BNB Studio in Brockton. “I’m always loyal to a fault — if the fucking ship is sinking, I’ll drown on the boat. Even if people saw me as a leader with the Kreators, I never saw myself like that. To me, I was just a cog in the ship, and as the ship started falling apart, I had to get in the driver’s seat. That’s plagued me, but now I’ve learned that you have to do some things on your own.”

FREE Amadeus the Stampede Disc Download

Saturday, July 31st, 2010


Amadeus is one of those cats who releases more mixtapes and albums that I can keep up with. In the past year alone he dropped like three discs – including a group project with Zombie Death Squad – and he tells me that he has like three more in the can. If you don’t know Amadeus, his shit is tough as hell with a slight Wu-Tang edge for sure. This is one of his first discs – recorded something like seven years ago. ‘Bout to give it a whirl myself…

I’m loving this shit. The sound, the texture, the sheer bravado. Album should be dope. Pretty sure I saw these two together at SXSW but was too drunk to write down a single sentence in my notebook. Good times.

Rakaa – “Crown of Thorns” | 3.5/4 Stars

Friday, July 30th, 2010


And suddenly it dawned on me: if rappers didn’t hastily release every track they record, there would be a lot fewer shitty hip-hop discs and a lot more crown victories like Rakaa’s solo debut. The components here could have been used as a dozen bangers on that many mixtapes, or as a concentrated cauldron of vast conceptual abilities, but the always reliable and often slept-on West Coast stalwart prudently chose the latter.

I feel the pain of anyone who might be saying, “I always liked Dilated Peoples, but I can’t see myself getting into a whole Rakaa project.” I had similar thoughts before diving into the dramatically strung-out “Observatory” with Mad Lion, and feel-good Babu beat stabs like “C.T.D.” A couple of dud throwbacks briefly interrupt, but otherwise Rakaa has painted the sort of edgeless canvas that even the most eclectic acts are scared to make these days.

In a thoughtfully sequenced hour, our protagonist finds love, loses it, builds his ego, bruises it, meets hip-hop, and influences it. Team player that he is, Rakaa also taps some brethren for production and posse cuts, but for lack of the appropriate metaphor, Crown of Thorns is his cross to bear.

Because Wite Asked So Nicely…

…And because Cymarshall Law is fucking dope, and I’ve definitely been sleeping on him.

Hey Wite – I know this kind of ruins the joke, but I’ve been loving your comments. Straight cracking up over here…

…Almost as funny as the time I used mayonnaise to penetrate your girl’s roast beef.

Sam Adams Fans Still Mad At JTTS

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010


Every week or so, when I check the comments that for some reason get caught in the WordPress spam filter, there are at least two or three latent defenses of Sam Adams (who, as you’ll notice above, has moved on from beefing with lowly local hip-hop blogs). My guess is that his new fans get all worked up when they Google for topless pics and discover our Sam Adams Week posts. Anyway – here goes the King Kong of all craziness, from someone who calls them self Coast 2 Coast Kid. Just arrived this morning. Pretty remarkable stuff…

Click Animosity Shows You Bitches How To Make A Video

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

Check the latest from Mission Hill’s resident degenerate crew Click Animosity (Gage + Trust + Rheto). Dope rough track; as for the video – it just goes to show that all you really need is a camcorder and a few forties to make shit happen. Rheto’s been telling me for some time that he has projects coming, and it looks like this one is melting together quite nicely (or as nicely as possible for a group of misanthropic vagrants).
