Fresh Pressed: Catch Lungs, Cory Kendrix, Hustle Man – “Still Drippen”

catchfp

Catch Lungs’ newest drop, “Still Drippen” featuring Cory Kendrix and Hustle Man definitely showcases outlandish cadence spewing from each of the rappers, but unlike many sippin’ tracks, this one doesn’t seem cliché. The beat nods to the chop and screw OG, DJ Screw, and the track itself is simply…(and slowly) fun. Who doesn’t love it when musicians just let loose a bit. What you think of Catch Lungs, Cory Kendrix, and Hustle Man – “Still Drippen”?

Fresh Pressed: Asphate, Ritual of Ether, Rolphy, U.T.I.C.A. and more

fresh pressed

ASPHATE (G4-CSR) – “Like So” The first single off his solo LP this is definitely a stand out track styled with a wonderfully classic beat paired with listen worthy lyrics. Ritual of Ether – “Devil Bitch” This track is somewhere between electro/dubstep and Hip Hop/Rap/Horrorcore. Whatever it is I am feeling it. Definitely something new when it comes to Hip-Hop. Rolphy – “You and I” The song “You and I” by Rolphy carries some heavy content with subject matter that speaks on addiction and denial. The production quality is not great but somehow seems to add to the tone of the track. U.T.I.C.A. – “KILL EM ALL” – ft. Ladyy Chelaa & Koo Qua This track could definitely find its way on to my playlist. It is not super unique but I have to give a shout out to Ladyy Chelaa and Koo Qua. It is always refreshing to hear talented female emcees especially from the local scene where there is not nearly ...

Collective Culture – Culture Over Currency

cultureovercurrency

We first mentioned Collective Culture last week, and today they dropped their big project, the one they have been hyping for weeks. Culture Over Currency vol. 1 is a cypher with seven Colorado emcees (in order of appearance) FL, Turner Jackson, Trev Rich, Mr. Midas, Hustle Man, AP, and Koo Qua. The goal that Collective Culture had by bringing all these emcees together, many who rep separate crews, was to “promote Denver talent the way that we see fit.” Though the cypher has been done many times, The Culture Over Currency video still feels fresh. The visuals look good, filmed in a sweet location (Ink Monstr office) by knowledgeable film peeps (Jeremy Pape, Derek Reinhardt and Fa’al Yamin Ali) which makes for a professional appearance. The tight shots of the emcee’s mouths add dimension and the varied camera angles, even more depth. The sound on the other hand wasn’t quite as great. The lofty ceiling, empty office, or both caused ...

The Rap-A-Thon Class of 2013

rapathon2013

On August 30, 2013 history was made. Dozens of MCs congregated at The Savoy (2700 Arapahoe) to spit the longest non-stop cypher that Denver has ever seen (heard), and they did it. From 8 p.m. (sharp) to close to midnight, MCs rapped, periodically passing the mic to the next eager rhymer. From writtens to freestyles, we heard a lot of stories over the course of the night, but all of them legitimate, as novices and veterans alike each had their turn on the mic. The overall vibe of the evening matched the classy ambiance of The Savoy’s ballroom – beautiful. Like any yearbook session, many didn’t show up on picture day, but those that did offered their favorite line delivered that evening.   The emcee’s energy was palpable as they passed the mic around the cypher. Each emcee completely different from one another with the same passion and drive.           The party people were just as ...

Jai Harris – Disconnected

jaiharris

Jai Harris doesn’t give a shit what you’re comfortable with, and Disconnected (Volume 1) is not a mixtape for the close-minded. If you’re looking for traditional rap, easy content, or an A-B rhyme scheme, Jai is not your artist and Disconnected is not your album. Hosted by DJ Vudu Spellz, the mixtape is almost exclusively spoken word set to soul sample laden beats. Some tracks, “Rollin Stone” and “Fresh” in particular, ride entirely on the strength of their samples (“Papa Was a Rolling Stone” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” respectively). It’s essentially the original track with added base and looped vocals. But just when you start to worry that’s all Vudu Spellz has in his wheelhouse, you’re hit with “Messin Me Around” the undisputed banger on the album. It’s yet another soul sample (courtesy of The O’Jays “Your Body’s Here With Me”) but the glittering hook sets you up perfectly for the ensuing bounce on the synth and stank ...
