PRhyme, the duo of DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9″, found some unexpected success late last year when they dropped their self-titled debut album. Now they're back with and updated version of the project, which features new cuts. Here they link up with The Roots' Black Thought for "Wishin' II," a track that initially featured Common. Check out "Wishin' II" after the jump and pre-order the deluxe version of PRhyme on iTunes.
Well shoot, Ras Kass ain't playin'. The legendary West Coast emcee is set to drop his provokingly titled Lyrical Hip Hop Is Dead EP on January 16th, and he's sharing its first offering in the Royce da 5'9" featured cut titled "Attitudes." In addition to having Royce on board already, the project will also feature guest appearances from Guilty Simpson, Rampage the Last Boyscout, his son Ras Austin & more. In the meantime, check out "Attitudes" remix with Royce after the jump.
Statik Selektah is calling it quits -- sadly. He's a great producer and a bonafide rap fan with terrific taste. But his upcoming Lucky 7 project will be his last -- again, sadly. And so far Statik has shared a handful of tracks from the project, including “Beautiful Life” featuring Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$, “Top Tier” featuring Sean Price, Bun B and Styles P, and “All You Need,” featuring Bronson, Ab-Soul & Elle Varner. Now Statik is sharing "Crystal Clear" featuring the Detroit OG and one-half of Bad Meets Evil, Royce Da 5'9". Check it out after the jump!
