Don't think for a hot second that I'm snoozing when it comes to these beats JACK!!!!!!!!

In 2008 " Ill Insanity " ( Rob Swift, Total Eclipse, and D.J. Precision ) released a project full of wicked production, next level scratches, etc...( Ground Xero )
Here are a couple cuts that will send you back to the lab to get your shit together......
" Soul Train Line " ( PSA )
" Scratch Live " featuring GRAND MASTER ROC RAIDA......
Saturday, September 19, 2009
For the last couple days I have heard a couple things about " Roc Raida's " hospitalization....I was alarmed but I figured he was young, and everything would be alright...
All of the sudden, BAM....Twitter is on fire with R.I.P. " Roc Raida " dedications......What, this can't be....There must be some type of mistake or something....So I decided to check " All Hip Hop.Com " to see what the official word was........
Unfortunately " Roc Raida " passed away earlier this morning.....Not quite sure how or what the details are surrounding his death
( The car crash or martial arts scenario are still unconfirmed ) ....
What a crazy year this has been....
Roc Raida was one of the nastiest on the decks....I ran into him a couple times, and what struck me about " Raida " was how humble he was....We talked briefly about some of his production accomplishments, ( I always loved that " Funky Piano " beat he did for " E. Brothers " ), touring, upcoming projects, etc......
I'm at a loss for words right now.....Instead of blogging, I'm going to get on the turntables and play some " Roc Raida " joints loud as fuck.....
That album he did with " Wayne- O " will be the first one on the list.......R.I.P. brother, you will be missed.......
Thursday, September 17, 2009

I can't believe " J.U.I.C.E. " isn't a household name after all the work he has put in.....Countless battles, albums, mixtapes, sureshot singles, and a incredible freestyle game should have laid the foundation for a stellar career....
But you know how the game go: politricks, Hip Hop popularity contest, shady labels, dick riding, etc....Play a part in keeping the nicest M.C.'s away from the accolades they truly deserve....
Some cats might say that the battle with " Supernat " shook him up.....I don't think so...And if you really watch that battle again you would realize how close of a battle it was.....
Anyway, Peep one of " J's " more recent cuts, ( Dear Battles ) ......
And while your at it, check these interviews conducted by " FSD ".......Big up to my man, Big Matt in " The Go ".....
It's time to get a little grimy, so I'm going to bless you with some hardcore shit courtesy of the " Freestyle Professors ".....Ever since 1994, the Bronx crew have been wildin out with their brand of dirty Hip Hop.....
" Heavy Listening " does a thorough job on this podcast...( Good job troopers )....So quit stalling G, turn this shit up past ten, and get ready for a heavy dose of that raw....AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH...

When I first heard this song a couple day's ago, I was instantly locked in to the somber texture of the production...Dreary keys lace stuttering snares and kicks....But after peeping the rhymes, I realized this cat ( Wombaticus Rex ) is dropping some well though out heat...
" Give " is a song that you probably won't hear anywhere else except here.....Enjoy this fresh Hip Hop from Vermont...( It's not where your from it's where your at ).......Listen up...
Welcome to my new column " HHBR ".....Every week I will let off a full clip of rants, opinions, observations, etc.....So fasten your seat belt homeskillet, I'm going in.......
1...This past weekend I went to a B Boy battle in Santa Rosa California... ( The Rose HAHAHA ) I couldn't believe how ill some of these cat's are....Just when you think you have seen it all, a new move, or a new combination slaps you back into reality.....
For example this cat from Sacramento ( forgot his name, my bad ) tapped me on the shoulder and asked me " Should I add another one ", I turned around and replied, " Sure black, go ahead "........I had no idea what the fuck he was talking about, but instantly I noticed a group of seven people, on all fours, lined up in a row.....He gives me a strange look, then proceeds to run as fast as he could towards the group......Then out of nowhere he jumps up and does a gang of ninjitsu type, corkscrew flips over the heap of bodies on the floor.......God damn.....He cleared them by at least a two feet....
That was some crazy shit that I will never forget, and I will never forget when my manz " Sha- Onerz " stopped the B Boy battle to bless me with the jacket you see in the above picture....Thank you Akhi, you always have a suprise up your sleeve.....And a big shout out to Remind, Crumbs, Zulu Gremlin, Bas Onerz, Ground Level, P, Dragon, Mannie, Mane One ( your funny as hell duke ), Mel, Foots, Goblin, those cat's from Miami, and Renegade Rockers for winning the whole shit.....
2..." THE BLOG GAME "..........When I first started this blog, I approached it from a disgruntled Hip Hop Head standpoint....I wanted to lash out at everybody that I felt was wack, I wanted to pop blog shots at anyone who was half-stepping, and put a spotlight on fools who souled their soul just to exploit Hip Hop for financial gain.....Lofty ideas right....
Now a year and a half later, my focus for " Hip Hop Battlefield " has definitely changed....Instead of putting my energy into things I obviously can't control, I would rather spend that time harnessing my own skills....We all know that wack motherfuckers exist, but everytime someone makes an alternative to the fuckery, WE WIN......
Instead of crying about bringing the 90's back, cat's need to be creative, study the right blueprints, clique up with like-minded individuals and DO YOU.......
3...." The Great Recession ".......Funny how everyone is making it rain in a god damn recession...Stores are closing up shop, I notice more homeless families digging through my trash, close friends with degrees can't even find a decent job, foreclosures on homes everywhere you look, prisons filling up past capacity ....Where is the next " Public Enemy " ?....
4.... " Kanye West Fiasco ".....To be honest, I never cared for his music....NEVER....But he should get a job as a comedian, because he is one funny ass brother.....Everyone acting like the " M.T.V Awards " are so prestigious...Fuck M.T.V until they bring Dre, Fab 5, and Ed Lover back.......POW...
5.." Gangster Robots ".........In the late 80's early 90's, California was a motherfucking war zone....At the high school I went to fools would get slapped up, stabbed, stomped out, on the regular....Dudes that used to be all " B Boyed up ", traded in their Lee jackets, for Raiders parka jackets and started flagging colors.......I'm actually suprised I made it through that era ( some of my closest friends didn't )....But what even suprises me more is that in 2009, I see a resurgence in gangbanging activity......Wow...Are you cat's for real, you need to knock that shit off before you get hit off with that DRAMA.....
6....If you want me to review your music send to ZJUDAH@YAHOO.COM.....Please do not send me that weirdo bullshit, PLEASE...
7..." Over Analytical Hip Hop Bloggers "........I'm not one of those bloggers that's going to bless you with a Hip Hop essay every time I post ( Even though I easily could, I used to be a journalist for a major newspaper in Sacramento )......Plus, I can't give all my jewels away dogz.....If we are face to face, we can chop it up about the science of this shit, but don't expect me to over analyze every nuance of someone's music on every post......
8....That's it for now fam, see you on the flip side.......

Taken from the N.Y. Times :
"Leon Heyward emerged from the subway just as the second plane struck, piercing the south tower. As others fled, he helped evacuate disabled employees from 42 Broadway, where he worked for the city’s Department of Consumer Affairs, and when the first tower fell, he was caught in the churning plume of contaminated dust and smoke.
Within months he started to feel sick. A father of two who prided himself on being fit, Mr. Heyward found himself overcome with fatigue. He had seizures; his memory slipped.
Mr. Heyward was known by many in the music world by another name, MC Sundance, a member of the Jazzy Five, one of the first rap groups to form in the South Bronx in the 1970s. He liked to work out and play basketball, and landed a job with the city.
Last October, after developing lymphoma, Mr. Heyward died at age 45 in the Bronx, where he was born. He became, officially, the latest casualty of the Sept. 11 terror attack, and just after 10 on a gusty, dreary Friday morning, the name Leon Bernard Heyward was read for the first time at ground zero as the nation paused again to remember its losses."

I'm not going to even lie, 85% of the time my musical taste gravitate towards mostly hardcore music, but on a lovely day like this it's only right that I snap my fingers to something a little less gritty...
This album by the " Shaolin Temple Defenders " is a perfect backdrop for summer time shenanigans....Real funky shit poppin off on this project, you do not want to sleep....
FIYYYAAAAHHHHH....Yeah, just like everyone else I am waiting to hear that new " M.O.P. " artillery....This cut right here ( Crazy ) produced by Statik Selektah, is rowdy enough to get somebody scuffed up....
" Termanology " even drops in for a 16...In his rhyme, he calls himself a " young Rakim "......I don't really know about all that " Term ", but you definitely do your thing....
Be on the lookout for that new M.O.P. ( Foundation ) when it drops in a couple weeks..

When cat's are talking about top ranking west coast lyricist, " Jihad " is a name that you should hear pop up....Pound for pound, he is one of the illest M.C.'s on this side of things...
Sometimes his beat selections are a little out there, but with the help of " D - Styles ", Jihad is carving out his own lane with his well thought out, dark, brand of Hip Hop..
" Fuckin With Kids " featuring D - Styles.............. Ill vocab...
" Shit You Never Thought Of " featuring D-Styles......Insane scratching on this..Damn...
By now you have probably heard the " Chef's " new joint....Wow...I was kinda suprised that he would deliver the goods at this high of a level...It's one of the best albums I have heard this year without a fraction of a doubt..
You can practically listen to the whole album in it's entirety without having to hit the fast forward button.....2 thumbs up.
This cut right here ( Ason Jones ) produced by " Dilla ", is a heartfelt tribute to O.D.B......R.I.P.
