[ALBUM STREAM] M3 --- DJ JAZZY JEFF

Creative and artistic freedom is what most artists (in my humble opinion) strive for in this day and age.  DJ Jazzy Jeff, one of my go-to legends when it comes to turntablism and production, has now entered the realm of a musical free agent, so to speak, with the release of the final installment in the Magnificent series, M3.  This is the first Jazzy Jeff-helmed product as an independent artist, and that freedom serves him well.  He's been so influential in developing artists and sounds for the better part of three-plus decades, and this album is an emphatic exclamation point for Magnificent as a sonic trilogy.  Dope collaborations abound, with Dayne Jordan, Rhymefest, Amir (Jeff's son), Masego, James Poyser, Andre Harris (Dre & Vidal) and others contributing their talents to this exciting project.  I have no secrets about DJ Jazzy Jeff as one of my biggest influences, and M3 is another feather in a stellar, almost unparalleled career as one of the dopest DJ's ever (actually he is the dopest in my book).  Stream and download the project (and thank me later).  Fleet DJ/Fleet Producer WISDOM BEATS signing out!

[NEW MUSIC] JAMIL HONESTY (FEAT. WHITNEY C)--- "SEARCHING" [PROD. BY WISDOM BEATS]



Collaborating with Jamil Honesty has truly been an honor.  What turned out as a simple beat submission to a respected emcee has turned out to be a blessing indeed.  What resulted was "Searching", a song anchored by a dope Roy Ayers sample.  With the beautiful and spirited vocalist Whitney C adding her vocal flourishes, "Searching" is destined to be a joint played during the dog days of summer (not only in the hometown of B-more but across boundary lines).  The song has taken on a life of its own, being featured on Rap Is Outta Control with DJ Eclipse and DJ Riz (SiriusXM Ch. 45), as well as a slew of other terrestrial and online stations (spanning the US, Canada, UK, Belgium).  Rounding out this joint is DJ Grazzhoppa providing the succinct scratches, and you have a timeless hip hop song (in my humble opinion).  Support the music and the movement by visiting Bandcamp and downloading "Searching".

16 BARS [DOCUMENTARY TRAILER]

Arrested Development emcee Speech (not to be confused with my cohort and Illogical B-more spitta) had a noble idea to go into a jail for ten days to facilitate and record with talented, yet incarcerated individuals.  This is indeed a story of redemption and hope, one that all can utilize in their life endeavors.  Peep the trailer for this riveting and dope visual.

[NEW MUSIC] "DOWNTOWN" --- ULLNEVANO FEAT. J-BERD [PROD. BY MANHE]

Ullnevano is right back at it with more dope rhymes complimented by 21st century boom-bap.  Produced by Norfolk, Virginia beatsmith MANHE and featuring Frederick, MD emcee J-Berd, "Downtown" showcases each lyricist taking listeners on a trip down memory lane in their respective cities.  Be it Baltimore Street (B-more) or Church Street (Frederick), each emcee paints a vivid picture that listeners can relate to on a visceral level.  "Downtown" is part of an eight-week Twitter series/music release entitled #SHAMMGODWEDS.  Dope concept to continue with the running theme of excellent hip hop releases for 2018.  Make no mistake, Ullnevano and company are in it for the long haul, and we are all the better for it.  Salute!

SKYZOO --- THE MAKING OF "IN CELEBRATION OF US"

In Celebration Of Us is the most recent album release for one of my favorite artists, Skyzoo.  Released 2.10.18, this joint is fifteen tracks of pure heat.  Nothing out of the ordinary for one of the most consistently dope artists in Hip Hop (actually any genre).  Per usual Skyzoo hits the fans with a BTS showcasing the process for genesis and completion of In Celebration Of Us.  Take a look, and if you haven't copped the album, hit the link after the video.
