Bozack Morris ft. Conway & Westside Gunn – Never Change

Posted in 1 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2016 by bobbybounce

Damn, this one somehow got by me for a good week. Producer Bozack Morris grabs Conway and Westside Gunn for a flamer called “Never Change” which he just liberated a few days back. The beat is fire and Con and Gunn go exactly as hard as we’ve come to expect them to. Also included is the previously released Conway solo cut “Mak 90” which has an absolutely stupid beat and together with “Never Change” makes up the 2-track Loose Cannons mini-album. #Fire

Young Buck – Riot

Posted in 1 on July 9, 2016 by bobbybounce

Young Buck is the latest rapper to add his voice to a deafening chorus addressing the state of affairs in America in 2016. The just released “Riot” is an explicitly angry track which advocates physical resistance to police brutality, but yo, that’s where we are right now. This is what you get when you allow systemic racism and murder to go unchecked: people start to feel like they have no other choice, as we saw in Texas last night.

Havoc x The Alchemist – Maintain (F*ck How You Feel) (The Silent Partner in Stores Now)

Posted in 1 on July 9, 2016 by bobbybounce

It has been said that real gangsters move in silence. In the case of Havoc (of Mobb Deep) and legendary producer The Alchemist, the duo chose to let their music speak for themselves. On the newly announced collaborative album, The Silent Partner, Havoc serves as the smooth-talking, gangster mouthpiece to the Alchemist’s gritty, one-of-a-kind instrumental backdrops.

One of the most decorated producers in hip-hop today, The Alchemist’s relationship with Mobb Deep dates back to 1999 when Cypress Hill’s DJ Muggs introduced the then-upcoming producer to the revered New York duo.

The Alchemist would go onto forge a strong bond with the group, resulting in a myriad of classic tracks throughout the years.
Connecting for their first full-length collaboration, the duo have shared smooth single “Maintain (Fuck How You Feel),” which premiered today via HotNewHipHop. Sounding sharper than ever, Havoc laces the listener with a series of street narrations over a laid back ALC beat.

The Silent Partner is a magnificently organic album that brings together one-half of the Mobb with their favorite producer for a modern day hip-hop classic. The Silent Partner features guest appearances by Method Man, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) and Cormega and will be released on May 20th via Babygrande Records.

Many, many songs addressing systemic violence by police against innocent citizens have been released over the last day or two, but Swizz Beatz just dropped a special one. If you’re gonna tackle this subject, you can’t ask for a better partner than ‘Face, one of the most lyrically gifted chroniclers of the African-American experience we have.
