Fo Chief and AG Flux – “Divided”

DIVIDED_SingleArt_2_WEB

Fo Chief and AG Flux have come together on something, and we’re pretty hyped about it. They’re both dope individually, but when they come together they up their wattage at least double. Their project, which is due to drop on February 26, 2015 is called “Potatoes & Gravy” and it makes sense, because yeah, both potatoes and gravy are pretty great on their own, but together  makes for one tasty dish. Check out the first single off the forthcoming project “Divided” below.

Fresh Pressed: ProCyse & Fo Chief, Kid Hum, Smoky Bare, Status & Slightly Filthy, DJ Dominic Deadbeat, and Strategy

fresh pressed

To satisfy your OCD, this week we have two videos, two mixtapes, and two singles.   DJ Dominic Deadbeat – “DJing with child” We have to start out with this one. Funky cuts and a cute baby? Hang on to your ovaries, ladies… Strategy ft. Celus – “Coast” Strategy is releasing his Debut project The Conception, and “Coast” is his first single. So far it’s mostly monotone references to the drug game but we’ll see what the full “concept” is before we dole out a judgement. ProCyse & Fo Chief – The Andy Davis Hour A collabo between two very different spitters, that has some definitive highs and lows…but the highs are really high, folks. Check in over at AXS for Nicole’s upcoming review of the whole mixtape. Smoky Bare – Your Medication If the cover art, mixtape title, or artist name didn’t tip you off, the first few tracks will let you know; this is one for the smokers. Ambient tones, filtered ...

Fresh Pressed: Bullhead*ded, Jiggy Thompson, ProCyse, Fo Chief, Rhyme Pro and more

image

Big week in Colorado hip-hop, speaking of, have you checked out the Westword Music Award nominees yet? This time of year always creates the biggest stir in the community, but yet no one “cares,” and “it doesn’t matter.” We see y’all, but we love the acknowledgement of the talent in any form and from any source. That said, here’s some new tracks for the week, as always, a plethora. Bullhead*ded (prod. by Maulskull) – “Snuffed” Both Bullhead*ded and Maulskull have their own signature sounds and them together is solid. Jiggy Thompson featuring Bella Scratch – “Feels So Good” Here’s another from the Panama Soweto, Mikey Fresh collaboration, this time with Bella Scratch (yes, the DJ) on the hook. ProCyse and Fo Chief featuring Paul Junior- “Nite Lights” Dig. Rhyme Progression – “Bottom Of Her Barrel” Dude is fairly versatile, always surprising in a young cat. Don Blas  ( DJ MU$A y’all Niggas need Jesus rework) – “AMEN” DJ Musa’s remix of ...

Fresh Pressed: AG Flux, A.V.I.U.S, Cannonball Soup, Sole, Planes! and more

image

What is so cool about the Colorado hip-hop community is that not a week passes without some new, extremely shareworthy music being released. I mean, that in itself speaks volumes of the scene, shit, that doesn’t happen on a national level. That said, here we are, Friday again with three new music videos, a single and a one-of-a-kind SXSW recap. AG Flux & A.V.I.U.S. feat. Sharelle- “Water Under the Bridge” The video for a single off of the pair’s EP, How Cliche, was shot and directed by Paul Junior. The visuals for this slick track include an attempt at a layered narrative, but unfortunately the concept went over our heads. Cannonball Soup (Kontrast & Fo Chief) – “Bars” The razor tongued, Fresh Breath Committee spin off, Cannonball Soup have something brewing as they’ve been dropping a bunch of gems recently. The latest, “Bars,” is as clever as it is quick, luckily they include the lyrics on their soundcloud page so you don’t ...

Sadat X, El Da Sensei, Qwel & Maker, and more at Cervantes’ Other Side

Cervantes' Other Side | 2.3.14 | Credit, Armando Geneyro

I mean, who wants to go to a show on a Monday night ever, much less the Monday night after the Broncos succumbed to one of the nastiest losses of their season, Superbowl XLVIII. Well, in this case, the Monday night show turned out to be just the kind of medicine that everyone in attendance desperately needed. The line-up was largely Colorado names, mixed with dash of old and new school national. The sound at Cervantes’ Other Side has become a favorite in town, which, when combined with the green leniency, new patio, and removal of the fucking death stair by the bar, boosts this venue to the top of the list of best places to catch a hip-hop show in Denver. The crowd was thin, as expected, at the Other Side, but the show started with a clean set by ODX. These three well-versed emcees (Lukeskyy, Ceejay Franchize and Leezy) were backed by the increasingly skilled Mikey Fresh on ...

Colorado Hip-Hop Track Benefits Sandy Hook Survivors

Faith In Change2

With negativity and tragedy becoming an everyday occurrence it’s easy to become numb to it and chalk it up to a cruel world. Colorado MC, singer and producer, Paul Junior decided to actually do something about it. He put together a heavy-hitting roster of Colorado artists to create a track that aims to not only touch the hearts of those affected by the recent tragedies, but also assist them financially. The track, “Faith In Change” (below) costs a measly $1 to download, but 100% of the proceeds will be donated to healingnewtown.org, an organization that aims to heal the community of Newton through the power of art. Appropriate, right? We took a moment to find out some of the details of how this project came together from Paul Junior. HipHopRollCall.com: I assume the Sandy Hook shooting hit home with you to inspire putting together a project like this. How did the idea come about? Paul Junior: Sandy Hook just hit me hard because of ...
