After almost two years in prison, former Dipset rapper JR Writer returned home to Harlem at the end of last year, and he got right back into the game by dropping the track "First 48" within the same month. He's stayed relatively quiet since, focusing on gearing up the anticipation for his official comeback tape, Meet Zeus, which is finally here. Zeus is Writer's post-prison moniker, and the new tape provides an introduction to the new persona he conjured up behind bars as well as a reminder of all that he achieved before going away.
N.O.R.E., AKA Noreaga, dropped his album Drunk Uncle over the weekend, but he was also nice enough to bless us all with a free download version. It’s a huge project, stretching across 23 tracks and skits. As expected, Noreaga brings back the old school with this one, but has a bunch of modern sounding joints as well.
And The Story Goes...
Chevy Woods has been busy in 2016, releasing a track with Sage the Gemini and a freestyle over Bryson Tiller’s “Don’t,” and now we’ve got a four-track EP from the Taylor Gang emcee.
Gone Till November
With the exception of Dirk Nowitzki's locker room bars, there's not a ton of German-bred rap music that makes it stateside. Joe Young is an exception... and today the emcee shares his latest mixtape Gone Till November. Laced with 15 tracks, Gone Till November gets features from some heavy hitters -- Rick Ross, The Game, Raewkon, Dave East, No Malice, Cormega, Inkmonstarr, & more. Production duties are handled by the likes of The Heatmakerz, Amp on the Track, and Craze.
Hate Me Now
Harlem up-and-comer Dave East has been dropping nothing but very hotttts in the lead up to Hate Me Now. At last the complete project has arrived, released by Nas' Mass Appeal Records and hosted by DJ Drama. Laced with 20 tracks, Hate Me Now gets guest appearances from the likes of Nas, Pusha T, Jadakiss, Styles P, and Mack Wilds, with production coming from Jahlil Beats, Don Cannon, Sean C & LV, Squad Beats, Earl & E, and more.
HNHH proudly premieres Dipset and friends' newest mixtape American Dream. The tape is a smorgasbord of talent, with appearances from Cam'ron, Juelz Santana, Freekey Zekey, Sen City, Vado, Lil Wayne, Yo Gotti, Dave East, Hell Rell, Styles P, Webstar, Chinx, Rowdy Rebel, Young Scooter, & many more. The tape is compiled into two parts because Dipset, true to form, wanted to do it the old school way. See the complete tracklist below:
Millyz has been buzzing around Boston for a minute now, and with projects like SPED, his national rep will continue to grow. He's already worked with veterans such as Freeway, Killer Mike, and Jadakiss, and he shows his experience shows on the 17-track mixtape. The Cambridge rapper knows how to rap street-level but has the versatility to kick head-bobbing ride-along anthems as well.
For The Win EP
The phrase "for the win" is a commonly-used one in sports, thrown out by announcers whenever the game rides on one shot. That being said, the words bring to mind one legendary moment more than any other: Michael Jordan's game-winner against the Utah Jazz in the 1998 NBA Finals. Today, Young Money MC Jae Millz drops off an EP by the very same name, For The Win.
Straight Outta Harlem
Spanish Harlem's Dave East drops his newest mixtape, Straight Outta Harlem, mixed exclusively by Scram Jones. While the Mass Appeal signee dropped Black Rose earlier in the year, which consisted of exclusive songs and a few features, Straight Outta Harlem, finds East going solo, and includes several freestyles over the year's hottest tracks, including "Hot Nigga' "Scene it All" "0 to 100" and "Chiraq" among others.
After unveiling the artwork last week and following that up yesterday with the tracklist plus a new music video for track #5 "Broke", Dave East is ready to drop his new effort Black Rose. The new mixtape contains 15 records from the New York resident, with production from RicoBeats, Chinx Santana, SunnyDukes and more. There are three features on the tape, limited to Smoke DZA, Makarel and Charlie Red. Give it a listen and/or download, and let us know what you think of the new release by rating it above.
