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!
If you wanna buy it, it’s a buck at bandcamp:
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:
In case you don’t know, Aesop just dropped his new album “The impossible Kid” on Rhymesayers last week. If you have missed it, you are fucking up cause it’s a really great album and should be ingested by all. You can get it all over the place but, if you’d like the two bonus tracks, I suggest you make the purchase from here: http://fifthelementonline.com/products/aesop-rock-the-impossible-kid
Yes, that’s right…BONUSSSSS. You get “Syrup” featuring Homeboy sandman and Open Mike Eagle as well as this remix i did for the song “Dorks”. That song you can also listen to streaming right here…
Oh hey…while i got you here…figured I’d just throw a bunch of new-ish remixes and random little joints I’ve done that are on my soundcloud page. Why not? Perhaps you missed one or two of these. Better late than never, right?
So, apparently, Desiigners song “Panda” has over taken Rihanna’s “Work” as the #1 song in america. This is just a coincidence cause I’ve been tinkering with a remix idea of this song for a while. Now, half of you will see I remixed this and come at me like “but whyyyyy?!?!?!?”. The other half will be like “Oh cool…”
For the first group of people, lemme explain.
I’m not here to make excuses. Fuck that. I’mma be straight up and say I like “Panda”. I would never remix a song I actively dislike. Not only that but I think Desiigner raps his ass off. Sure, it’s one short verse , sandwiched between two choruses that are about as long as said verse. I hear a lot of people complaining about how he sounds like Future. Well, I’m sure he does. i don’t really check for Future. The stuff i have heard didn’t move me and I can honestly say, at no point, have I heard Future rap like Desiigner does during his one verse in the middle of this song. Keep in mind, I’m not too schooled on Future so it’s possible it exists. I simply haven’t heard it. I see the similarities in aesthetic but that’s about it. But, back to Desiigner…to all you people rolling their eyes at the idea of even listening to this kinda thing, yet you claim to be into some weirdo rap…His verse on this song is some straight out of project blowed abstract rap flow kinda shit. Sure, I can’t make out most of the words and , topically, i doubt it’s anything special but my point is…the dude can flow. At the very least, you gotta give him that. That’s what popped out to me when I finally gave this song a chance. That and the hook is catchy. Sorry…it is. I hate that I have to even write this kinda shit but I feel like I know my readership well enough to know how closed off some of you are from even allowing yourself to like some shit like this.
So, yeah…Here’s my remix. It’s an old beat i was sitting on for a while that never found a home. A little latin flavor…kinda.
Enjoy…and the download link is below the soundcloud
Been a while since I’ve spoke about my group The Mighty Jones but now is as good a time as ever. If you’re unaware of what I’m talking about I implore you to check it out right HERE. It’s the music streaming as well all the places you can get it.
We recently recorded a live performance of a new song (yes, one that is not on the album) for Sofar, which is a cool thing where they bring new artists into a very intimate setting to play for a small audience. This particular video was filmed in a clothing store in Soho. It was definitely a good time so check out the new cut and , yeah, go buy that album cause it’s dope.

Listen, we all know that , single or in a relationship, Valentine’s day is some ol’ bullshit. This isn’t about that. I was fiddling around with some music today and decided I’d hit all the lonely people and lovers with a remix of Nina Simone’s song “Be my Husband”. It’s no secret, I love Nina Simone and remixing her is always fun for me. I mean, who hates Nina Simone, anyway? If you do, you’re a dickhead.
So, enjoy this remix. Send it to a loved one. Send it to the person who got you locked in the friendzone. Send it to the person you think you could fuck but aren’t totally sure. Like Nina, this is for everyone. Enjoy, Lovers…
