Big Sean laces Common with a great hook and refrain for another single on his Speak My PieceRead More
Boldy James offers this preview of his song on Nas’s Mass Appeal compilation tape. He’s doing numbers so that’s “crunchin,” which continues the theme of creating new slang that he started on his M.1.C.S mixtape. He follows in a long list of guys who would be pretty okay without any rap money. He lets you know why too. Track after the jump.
The reason I think Trick Trick possibly threatened Eminem and Royce to be on this track is inconsequential. But let’s just recognize that they don’t belong on a twerking song with him, that their verses sound like they were applied without knowing what the beat was and that Trick Trick only fits with these lyrical giants geographically and not in terms of talent. Anyway, twerk that, pop that after the jump.
Detroit’s own Cormega huster flow, Boldy James, releases this video from the Alchemist collab project My 1st Chemistry Set. He nicknames everything because he’s ‘Moochie.’
The great Denmark Vessey, of Detroit fame and mixtape brilliance, has a new joint called Cult Classic you need to hear. It’s available for purchase and download tomorrow. Produced by Scud One.
Black Milk might be the most complete producer/rapper in hip-hop. Still, he remains chronically slept-on. This album, No Poison No Paradise, will probably cement him as a critical favorite. Stream at the link.
This kind of song will insure that I never ever move to Detroit. A lot of chains are getting snatched in these verses…and ribs cracked…jaws shattered. Really fun stuff for your city. Happy Murder Capitals, y’all. Off Guilty Simpson & Small Professor’s Highway Robbery.
Eminem’s childhood home is for sale at auction. Based on some of the topics he covered on that album, and the trauma associated with it, my guess is he won’t be bidding. But there may be some interested buyers in the Detroit area. Details after the jump.
Is Callius Moon a disturbed individual with a comedic side or does he just have a penchant for hip-hop that defies logic? In one of the most bizarre courtroom defenses ever caught on camera, Moon, a Detroit resident accused of threatening to kill his girlfriend, took the stand to show off his impressive off-the-dome vernacular. Surprised by what he heard, District Judge John Chmura told Moon “that’s good” and actually admitted to being impressed before asking Moon if he will require a court-appointed attorney. Family members of Moon, who also faces charges ranging from destruction of police property to disturbing the peace, claim that he suffers from mental illness. HIt the jump for the outrageous video of what happened in court last week. Read More
