KXNG CROOKED has been dropping nothing but heat for 20 years, and though he never achieved success proportionate to his prowess on the mic, he has developed a staunch fan base. With Christmas near on the horizon, Crooked shares one for the fans, a loose freestyle called "Gift Rap." "Gift Rap" slows down the instrumental from Jay Z/Memphis Bleek's 2005 single "Dear Summer," produced by Just Blaze at the height of his powers. Blaze samples Weldon Irvine's "Morning Sunrise."
While we patiently await for more news on Slaughterhouse’s upcoming Glass House album, which Joell Ortiz says is all done, Interscope decides to liberate a new track from the 4-headed monster in the meantime called “R.N.S.,” which can be found on the upcoming soundtrack to Eminem’s executive produced "Southpaw".
Over the past couple months, Just Blaze has been treating fans to some unreleased instrumentals from his personal catalog.
Just Blaze is in a giving mood tonight. We just heard "Moleskin Conclusion," a beat that was intended to be the sequel to Jay Electronica and Blaze's "Dear Moleskin." Now he's dropped a second beat, "Miracle," which, at one time, was intended for Jay Z and Jeezy.
The legendary producer Just Blaze just shared an unreleased, untouched beat on his soundcloud, titled "Moleskin Conclusion." As per the cover art, "Moleskin" is an ode to the brand of high-end Italian notebooks. Indeed, if you're a rapper who prefers to write down your lyrics, "Moleskin Conclusion," should channel the pen towards the paper in no time.

For a Throwback Thursday on Instagram producer Just Blaze decided to drop a record he produced when he was 15 years old, with a 13-year old rapper named Poun, "Backstabbers."
