So, I’ve been making a lot of new music lately. A new full length album called “Funeral balloons”, a new album with Billy Woods and a soon to be free album which will feature instrumental tracks as well as songs with vocals. I’m getting tired of sitting on all this music so I figured I’d just plop something down here today. This is a track that I plan to drop on the free album. It’s not mixed or mastered so…you know…keep that in mind.
Just wanted to remind you guys…I’m still here and shit!
I’m about to hit the road and do some shows in select places over the next few months. You should come to my shows if you happen to live in the area cause…why the fuck not?

A while back, I wrote a “yay or nay” column about Googie. He’s a Jersey born, Queens based rapper with a relentless style and dominating presence.
What had happened was , I was at a show , chilling by the bar , waiting for Billy woods to go on and heard this dude absolutely murdering it on stage. It was that rare moment were an opening act really caught my attention. That man was Googie. I had met him that night and seen him around a few times after that. Well, he’s finally released a proper album and it was my pleasure to do a couple tracks on it.
Check out the whole album right here: https://wearethekarmakids.bandcamp.com/album/tis-what-tis
Here’s one of the tracks I did off it. Good stuff.
My Buddy Marq Spekt and have been working together for a few years now. A little while back we dropped an album called “Justplaywitit” on Hipp Nott Records. Today, we release the follow up “Keep Playing”. Real excited about this. If you like no bullshit rapping and , well, my beats then you are in for a treat.
It’s available today all over. Here it is, streaming on bandcamp:
Hey, It’s been 10 plus years and I’m making my way back to Australia for a the Manifest festival and some other shows as well. My gigs are listed above. But, the real reason I made this post is to hip you to this promo mix by Jing Kohn. It’s a nice walk through my career, including some good scratching, interview clips and, of course, my music from the beginning to now. Really thorough job here….check it.
And you thought this blog was done…Nope. Like I said…when I got stuff to share I will.. Now is one of those times.
Here’s a spanking new song I did with MarQ Spekt from his upcoming album (which i produced entirely) called “Keep playin”. The album drops in august on Hipnott records. We did another album together last year called “JustPlaywitit” that I think you should check out if you missed it.
This song is a special one as it features the talents of Conway, HPone and Da Buze Bruvas. This is some tough shit. Don’t sleep. Enjoy!
Elucid is a Brooklyn MC and possibly one of the more underrated rappers out right now. If you’re familiar with this blog, you’ve probably seen his name pop up a few times, along side Billy Woods. While he’s far from typical and might not appeal to the more mainstream ears , he’s got a style and approach that is truly his own thing. It’s kinda that new-new york sound. he recently put out a fantastic album called “Save Yourself” on Backwoodz Studios and I was fortunate enough to get to remix a song from the album. Here it is:
Don’t forget to peep (and buy) the whole album. Definitely worth the money:
