[NEW MUSIC] BLACK-TOKYO MUSIK --- OUTTA HERE WIT THAT BULLSH%T EP

Black-Tokyo Musik is back again with a new release entitled Outta Here Wit That BullSH%T, a dope collection of joints that delivers the usual BTM-flavored boom bap for the intelligent listener.  I could give the normal dissertation about the content and quality of the music, but I will allow the listener to make the proper judgement call by absorbing this EP in its entirety.  Take a listen and you will understand where Black-Tokyo Musik is taking us with Outta Here Wit That BullSH%T.  Dope as usual!

[NEW MUSIC] DOT-COM INTELLIGENCE --- RESONANCE [FULL ALBUM]

Hailing from Chocolate City is the talented emcee Dot-Com Intelligence.  Harkening back to an era where Black pride and militancy was more the norm and not the exception in Hip Hop, this young brother brings a flair of intellect and consciousness you won't hear twenty times a day via Clear Channel (and that may not be a bad thing).  His material is definitely not watered down, and he has the potential to be a potent leader in the DMV Hip Hop arena. 

Peep the recently released project Resonance, twelve tracks of revolutionary and introspective music that will make you think and bop your head at the same time.  Looking forward to more positivity from Dot-Com in the future.  You can find the artist via Twitter:  @Dotintell19.

[NEW MUSIC] "NO MORE PARTIES IN L.A." --- KANYE WEST FEAT. KENDRICK LAMAR [PRODUCED BY MADLIB]

Mr. West teased us a week ago with the snippet for "No More Parties In L.A.", and social media was ablaze with fervor over the completed project.  We now have the full joint, in all its Kanye/Kendrick/Madlib glory.  How does it sound as a finished product?  In today's here today, gone tomorrow market it is pretty good.  Truth be told it sounds like it was a track destined for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (that's another story unto itself), but whatever the case I will take it.  I hope that the February release of SWISH will be more of this and not "Jumpman", but that is just me (or is it?).  Nevertheless take a listen to the full, unadulterated version with Kendrick Lamar spittin' that TDE heat and Madlib diggin' in the dusty crates for "Suzie Thundertussy" by Junie Morrison as the backdrop (do your research).

THE PHARCYDE LABCABINCALIFORNIA 20TH ANNIVERSARY MIXTAPE [MIXED BY CHRIS READ]

It's hard to believe that the Cali classic Labcabincalifornia is 20 years old.  The Pharcyde definitely put their collective heart and soul into the more reflective and mature second offering.  Imani, Slimkid3, Bootie Brown and Fatlip may not have earned gold status with the release, but the album definitely is a testament to their dedication to the craft of Hip Hop.  I'm very excited that Wax Poetics and WhoSampled collaborated with Chris Read to bring this dedication to the masses.  Enjoy this nostalgic trip back to Labcabincalifornia!

[NEW MUSIC] "TRYNNA B-MORE (INTRO)" --- DUB (FROM 2AKNATION)

Very promising music is on the horizon from Dub, a member of 2AK Nation (and my son of course).  Here is a teaser from the highly anticipated Trynna Bmore mixtape that is creating buzz in Harm City and beyond.  Shying away from the trap beat frenzy and rhyming over a more boom bap-based soundscape, Dub waxes poetic about his struggles and visions of triumph , giving way to a balanced lyrical offering that fits the song's title perfectly.  Be on the lookout for more from Dub and 2AK Nation.

[NEW MUSIC] MGNTK --- ULLNEVANO FEAT. LOGIC MARSELIS AND ILLIEN ROSEWELL (PROD. BY [W]))

MAGNETIC

Adjective  |  mag-net-ic  |  \mag-'ne-tik

    :  of or relating to a magnet or magnetism
    :  possessing an extraordinary power or ability to attract




It's been six long months since I've even touched WISDOM SEEKER as a blog.  I've had to put music on the back burner for a little bit, but the love is ALWAYS there.  With that being said, here is a dope joint from my B-more brotha Ullnevano (@Ullnevano) featuring his cohorts Logic Marselis (@logicmarselis) and Illien Rosewell (@illien), with production from Kansas beatsmith [w] (@waynevalentine).  Classic 21st century boom bap in the vein of Kev Brown, this banger touches the mental and lets us know that there will always be a home for thought-provoking, insightful hip hop.  The full-fledged project entitled Adventure Rhyme was released September 30th.  In the meantime enjoy the magnetic sounds of "MGNTK".
















       

[ALBUM STREAM] INDIE 500 --- TALIB KWELI + 9TH WONDER

#INDIE500

Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, and 9th Wonder gave the underground music world a nice surprise when #Indie500 became a hot topic for a possible collaboration amongst the titans.  With Javotti Media, W.A.R. Media and Jamla Records as the respective companies of the aforementioned artists, we have a collective that is destined to make waves with the undercurrent that is 21st Century music. I have been looking forward to the endless possibilities that could result from this project.  What we now have is the fruition of the vision.  Scheduled for official release November 6th, the artists have allowed the music to be previewed via album stream.  Peep the dopeness coming from this album, with various like-minded artists such as Rapsody, Brother Ali, Slug from Atmosphere, Halo, GQ, Planet Asia, Add-2 and Jessica Care Moore adding their finishing touches to the project.  Khrysis, Nottz, Eric G and E. Jones (along with 9th) provided the sonic flair that drives the album overall. Indie 500 is definitely one of the best joints of 2015.  Please support the #INDIE500 movement and cop it as soon as possible.
