I haven’t posted new raps in a minute, so sorry if I’m late to the party with some of these.

Clipse f/ Rock City – “Warning

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Newish Clipse produced by The Synth, a nearly impossible to google Atlanta duo who self identify as “emotronic” on their myspace page. Uh oh. Maybe they should enter this Scion Dubstep studio competition I have been hearing so much about? Either way the track is pretty crazy, all Tom Breihan synth gurgles and definitely better than anything that the Clipse has spit over all year. Or maybe it’s just shocking in light of how decidedly safe most hip hop production has been over the past six months. It seemed like 808s and Heartbreak, for all its faults, was primed to push a generation into making more adventurous beats the way “A Millie” almost did last year. Instead all it did was inspire a few people to make beats that sound exactly like 808s and Heartbreak the same way “A Millie” only birthed a bunch of inferior knock offs. Anyway, I could do without the Rasta Impasta on the hook but otherwise this jams.

Lil B – “I’m God

I got a chance to link up with the Based God himself this weekend. He showed me a cgi picture of an uprooted castle floating amongst clouds and said “that’s the kind of music I want to make.” Then he played this song. The beat, courtesy of someone named Clams Casino, is total weightless and aerial madness. B is sort of on cruise control, but that’s really the best way he rides. (Via Digital Dripped) (more…)

Gucci Mane – “Wonderful” FUCKWMG
Make no mistake, Gucci Mane loves language. He’s a classical rap thesaurus addict but not in the Jahru (sp) the Damaja super scientifical find the biggest most obscure synonym sense. (Shouts to the Shrimp, who suggested similar language expansion skills in their massive ’08 Gucci wrap up.) Phrases like “gorgeous” or “wonderful” aren’t remotely obscure words in the english language but they aren’t all that common in the hip hop lexicon. Maybe they would be used to describe a woman, but rarely on some first person braggadocio. Then again, I might be overthinking things completely and Gooch is probably just a big Bubba Sparxxx fan. Either way this song goes hard. (via Dirty Glove Bastard)

Poison Pen f/ M.O.P. – “Magnifique

from The Money Shot (Gold Dust, Available 8/4/09)

I haven’t heard Poison Pen’s name since the late 90s NYC underground boom. I certainly don’t remember him being “swagnificent.” But this record features M.O.P. rapping over mechanical Terminator crunches. What more could you possibly ask for? (more…)

I’m home sick today (differentiated from my “home healthy” days only by how guilty I feel about procrastination) and decided to post some new rap music.

Pill – “Back Outside

from Liquor Store Mascot (Coming Soon)
As B.O.B. moves further into space rapping and not-rapping territory his vastly underrated homie and hypeman Playboy Tre keeps getting closer and closer to RAP RAP purism. “Bleachers” breathes off palm to the lunch table simplicity.
