A week back Ghostface Killah announced his forthcoming album 36 Seasons (his thirteenth full length album to date), which will be dropping December 9th. With that Pretty Toney shared the first single, “Love Don’t Live Here No More”. The second single, "The Battlefield", however, is more on the gritty side featuring NYC all-stars Kool G Rap and AZ. It's worth noting that in addition to "The Battlefield" AZ will be appearing on four more tracks on 36 Seasons. Listen after the jump!
After surprising hip-hop heads with the announcement of his forthcoming studio album 36 Seasons earlier in the week and sharing a new cut “Love Don’t Live Here No More” Ghostface Killah returns with a preview of the album. The album features the likes of Kool G Rap, AZ, Pharoahe Monch, Rell, and more. Listen to the sampler after the jump.
Here's a welcome collaboration: Kool G Rap and Guilty Simpson. When you look at the two rappers, on paper, this collaboration makes all the perfect sense. You've got a legend in the game in G Rap, who has put out hardcore hip-hop classics (Road to the Riches, Wanted: Dead or Alive, Live and Let Die) and Guilty Simpson, a gruff and tough Detroit rapper with all the sensibilities that make for a master ghetto storyteller. Pinning G Rap and Guilty Simpson together is a match made in heaven and their track "Chess Never Checkers" is a solid cut in this potential canon. Listen after the jump.
Here's a treat for hardcore hip-hop heads out there. Saigon, one of Brooklyn's finest, has dropped a jewel on ya'll. "Mechanical Animals" is a beast of a track, featuring a stacked lineup which includes the legendary Kool G. Rap, Marcy alumni Memphis Bleek, and Chiraq's Lil Bibby. Safe to say you better brace yourself because all four MCs deliver stellar verses. Get at it after the jump.
