DON’T SLEEP: maticulous “The Confluence EP” [NEW PROJECT]

maticulous dropped this producer EP called “The Confluence” last week that I just found the link to in my other email account. Having one phone is an adjustment but I’ve figured out how to deal with it for the time being. “The Confluence” features appearances from Beedie, Jon Quest, Hubbs, Black Sun, Shad Ali & Folkland spitting over 7 hot slaps reppin’ Pittsburgh the right way. Don’t sleep on it.



DON’T SLEEP: Blu x Exile “Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them” [NEW PROJECT]

Blu & Exile’s “Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them” was released a while back in a low quality audio format via Bandcamp quite a while back (Yeah, I have that version as well). Two weeks ago, the high quality audio version was released via Fat Beats/Dirty Science. It’s a definite follow up to the previous classic Blu & Exile release “Below The Heavens”. The entire project was produced by Dirty Science’s Exile features guest appearances from Fashawn, Homeboy Sandman, Johaz (Dag Savage), Black Spade (Hawthorne Headhunters) and ADaD. You can cop “Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them” from iTunes, Amazon, Fat Beats & UGHH. Don’t sleep on it…

DON’T SLEEP: La Coka Nostra “Masters Of The Dark Arts” [NEW PROJECT]

La Coka Nostra returns with a slimmed down lineup and quite possibly an even grittier approach than their debut “A Brand You Trust” (which I honestly didn’t even know was possible) for the new LP “Masters Of The Dark Arts”. This jawn features production from DJ Premier, Statik Selektah, Ill Bill, DJ Lethal, Beat Butcha, Sicknature, C-Lance, Scott Stallone & Jack Of All Trades. Guest bars come courtesy of Sean Price, Vinnie Paz (Jedi Mind Tricks), Sick Jacken, Thirstin Howl III & Big Left (original LCN member). Cop “Masters Of The Dark Arts” right now from iTunes, Amazon, Fat Beats (vinyl available) & UGHH (vinyl available). Don’t sleep…


DON’T SLEEP: Masta Ace x DOOM “MA_DOOM: Son Of Yvonne” [NEW PROJECT]

Back on June 5th, I saw on Twitter that people were talking about Masta Ace’s long awaited and oft delayed DOOM collaborative LP “MA_DOOM: Son Of Yvonne” way before the announced release date of July 17, 2012 (which is today). It was available for purchase via iTunes more than a month in advance. Now you can cop it both from your choice of digital music marketplace or in physical form. Cop “MA_DOOM: Son Of Yvonne” which boasts features from DOOM, Big Daddy Kane, Reggie B & Pav Bundy right now from  iTunes, Amazon, Fat Beats or UGHH. Don’t sleep…
