NEXT TO BLOW: Meek Millz!

Posted by Dontsleeppp | Posted on 6:32 PM

He's back and now signed to Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group.. When Diddy's probably doing what he should of done a long time ago. Ritiring that stupid Dirty Money group situation he had going on, unless he's playing Wizard Of OZ in the background.

Silent Knight- Hunger Strike (Album)

Posted by Bonesy | Posted in | Posted on 9:54 AM

I stepped back into the time machine with this one. You may have heard the track 'Busy is my Best Friend' on a dontsleeppp playlist, and if you liked it you already know what to expect from Silent Knight. 'Hunger Strike' dropped in late 2006, and I listened to it a lot then, when alot of the producers on the album were still unknown even by underground heads. Today, guys like Illmind(G-Unit) and Analogic(EMC) are doing big things so it's cool to hear how they started out. The album has features from the likes of Supastition and Sean Price, but Silent Knight easily holds his own with solid hooks and concepts.

Diz Gibran- Soon You'll Understand (Mixtape)

Posted by Bonesy | Posted in | Posted on 12:35 PM

This was probably my favorite mixtape when it dropped 2 years ago but I kind of forgot about it until some tracks came up on shuffle recently. The whole tape still sounds fresh today, thanks to Moonshine's (Queens, NY) creative beats and Diz's bars. He goes from introspective on 'Impossible' to full on battle rhymer on 'Capital D' with ease. Gibran is easily one of the dopest out of L.A., which says alot considering the west coast is one of the main areas keeping hip hop exciting these days. Check out these joints below and download after the jump.

Phonte's Solo Album (News)

Posted by Bonesy | Posted on 10:50 PM

After disputing and then settling their differences publicly, Phonte and 9th Wonder are ready to work together again:

"We were just talking on the plane on the way up, I'm officially starting my record when we get back." Phonte continued, "Me and 9th are going to start going through tracks. What I see for my record is I want him to be if, my record is for example an Amplified (Q-Tip), he would be like my J Dilla. Any other producers that we work with would have to fit within that framework. September 13th is the release date..the same day as the Minstrel Show 6 years ago."

Str8 Slammin is a collection of Gibbs songs & features that didn't land on any official Gibbs mixtapes. It's a very well put together compilation. Professional fixes & edits were made to supe certain tracks up a bit so the tape flows together like a retail album. In no way shape or form do we profit off this tape it was put together strictly for the fans. All tracks are CDQ & No DJ!

Young Jeezy signs Freddie Gibbs?

Posted by Bonesy | Posted on 11:53 AM

Seems like a strange move..hope Gangsta Gibbs knows what hes doing. This could have something to do with Rick Ross's latest signings (Wale, Pill, Meek Mill), since both Gibbs and Jeezy don't see eye to eye with Ross..time will tell.

Kendrick Lamar- Overly Dedicated (Mixtape)

Posted by Bonesy | Posted in | Posted on 7:16 PM

This tape wasn't exactly slept on..it received enough praise when it dropped, most notably from the D.R.E. However, I never got around to checking it out until a couple weeks ago, and it's been in rotation ever since. Kendrick transitions on this mix from hazed out joints to undeniable bangers like it's nothing..and keeps his rhymes in check at the same time.I have a feeling the XXL freshman will be making alot of noise in 2011, so don't sleeppp.
