Comprehensive Beatdown is 30 episodes this old this week! For this special episode, Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G listen to “Meow the Jewels,” which probably needs no introduction to our listeners. But we’ll give it to you anyway. “Meow the Jewels,” which began as a joke “bonus package” buried deep in the email announcing the varying release formats of Run the Jewels 2, came to fruition after a group of friends contributed over $40,000 to an online campaign to make Killer Mike and El-P produce the record. A wide array of guest producers were brought in to complete the project, which is a full remix of Run the Jewels 2 album, using cat sounds for the music. All proceeds from the online campaign were donated to charities that benefit the victims of police brutality.
The intro music is from “Seven Seas,” the new record from Emancipator, which dropped on September 25th.

Yea, so as some of you may know, my new album My Conversations with God will be released on October 17th. Well, I was never really into the whole GoFundMe or Kickstarter crowd-sourcing to get raise money for a project that’s not even out yet. I don’t believe in you giving me something for nothing. However, I DO believe in #ChildSupport. Here’s a 5-track EP of brand new unreleased songs to prep you for the album. It’s available by donation of however much you see fit. Drop by 5thchildmusic.com or stop me when you see me to pick up a copy. I can’t wait for y’all to hear the album, but in the meantime…5th Child presents #TheChildSupportEP

After a quick vacation, Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G are back with Episode 26 of Comprehensive Beatdown. This week, the guys take a look back ten years to “Late Registration,” Kanye West’s second album, released August 30, 2005. “Late Registration,” released to critical acclaim and high sales, was given a boost after Kanye’s (in)famous “George Bush doesn’t care about Black people” quote at a Hurricane Katrina relief benefit just days after the album’s release. Kanye West would go on to be one of the most influential players in pop culture and remains so to this day. The guys discuss all of that and more this week as they take a listen back through one of the better albums of the early 21st century.
Change is an artist on Illect Recordings, check out the new track titled “Growing Pains”. An ode to his father who passed away some years back and an honest look into growing up with his absence.
“I lost my father back in 03′ …and this song is really a letter to him. I’m angry he’s not around. I didn’t have anyone to show me how to be a husband or a father, you know? So I’m trying the best I can, and a lot of times I feel like a failure. So I needed to tell him that…” – Change
“Growing Pains” is an emotion filled track riddled with angst, heartache, and most importantly, a prayer for help in those times where you might feel like a failure as a man. A topic that most men can truly relate to. With a gritty sample driven banger from Tee-Wyla, this track will both make your head nod, and your soul relate to the struggles of being alone without someone to help guide you along life’s journey.
“Music is my therapy… So I had to get this off my chest. I loved my dad, and I miss him. His birthday is this week (Aug 27th) and I wish I could give him daps and a hug one more time… So this one is for everyone who lost their father, or never knew their father. We in the same boat, fam…” – Change
