Off Rubber Souls, this video knocks as does the beat, produced by 6th Sense. Sleeper album of the fall so far.
Just a few months off of their latest album release, Kidz in the Hall are putting in heavy work. After a run on Rock the Bells, they’re planning their own tour and Naledge is working on some solo music. Their latest project is a little play on conscious rap, which is a mixtape entitled Naledge Presents: Welcome to the Brainiac Society. Check out features from Chip tha Ripper, 6th Sense, Mickey Factz, and of course Naledge.
Here’s some thoughts from Naledge on the project: “Welcome To Brainiac Society is a compilation or collection of music that I like, and that I might have made or contributed to. There’s no real rhyme or reason to it. I think a lot of people got confused when I started repping Brainiac Society as my crew or my label cause I think a lot of people took it as a separation from Kidz In The Hall, which is not what it is. It’s just me giving a platform to people that I like, and I want it to be looked at moreso as a Native Tongues type of thing than as a Bad Boy type of thing. It’s just a group of people that make dope music and appreciate the artistry of Hip Hop and doesn’t have to necessarily mean they are rappers. They can sing, they can make beats, DJ, whatever. It’s about the creative renaissance that’s going on within Hip Hop all over the nation. These are people that I met in my travels who I feel are dope and they inspire me. We just get together and we collectively make art…It’s also a platform for me to put out Fooch who is my artist. It’s no departure from Kidz In The Hall. Me and Double O are such creative beings in general, that we don’t know how to operate without 30 things going on at once. We’re very much multi-taskers and we’ve always been that way. We try to have our hands in everything.”

Famed mixtape DJ Mick Boogie has recently hosted a slew of tapes with artists like Little Brother, Talib Kweli, Young Chris and Busta Rhymes. Amidst his DJ duties, Boogie took a break to head to the Nike headquarters and was apparently inspired by the visit. Boogie and 6th Sense joined forces to create the 9-track “Just Do It: A Mixtape Ode to Nike,” which features freestyles over Just Blaze’s “Team USA” track and Wale’s Though the tape is rather short, the duo created and released it in just two days (pretty good turnaround time).
