Sit down, not Humble.

Griselda Records / Shady Records signee Conway just dropped a new freestyle over Kendrick Lamar‘s “Humble” beat. The rapper goes in over Mike-WiLL’s production for nearly three uninterrupted minutes, and while Conway’s flow is slow to start, by the end he is absolutely spazzing. With album art shouting out Rob Zombie’s Captain Spaulding character, it’s only appropriate that Conway murders the beat.

While many have graced the Humble beat, nobody has held it down quite as effectively as Kendrick. Still, Conway turns in a valiant effort, and fans of the Buffalo rapper should definitely check this one out.Quotable LyricsI know how the brick look, I know how the whip cook
It ain’t Friday but my neighbors still can smell the fish cook
I just got the drop on the location where your bricks put
Hook him in his mouth and rip his cheek like its a fishhook


Just Blaze and Swizz Beatz square off in fiery beat battle

What a way to start the weekend. Late Friday night, two titans of hip-hop put their best work on display in a beat battle for the ages.

Paterson’s Just Blaze, a producer known for his high-profile work with Jay Z, Beyonce, Joe Budden and other artists, and Swizz Beatz, the producer from the Bronx who made his name working with DMX, Ruff Ryders, Jay Z and Busta Rhymes, deployed their trademark sounds in the rumble.

For nearly three hours, Just Blaze and Swizz, who now lives in Englewood with his wife, Alicia Keys, volleyed their best samples and improvised on the spot, in a battle that was streamed on Instagram Live Friday night. Video was also live-streamed to YouTube by Hot 97 as the station’s morning show personality, Ebro Darden, stood nearby, capturing the action with this phone. Busta Rhymes, also present for the occasion, made some hilarious faces (see tweet below) as he listened to the carnage unfolding in front of him.

The beat battle, a rare event between two such prominent producers, lit up social media. While some swore that Swizz Beatz took home the gold that night, at some points, it was anyone’s game. But many seemed to agree on one thing: the battle was great for “the culture.”

As Swizz Beatz was very nearly pronounced the winner in the room that night, both producers demurred.  #STORYCREDIT By Amy Kuperinsky | NJ Advance Media for The Star-Ledger
