Asics is doing a good job with the Gel Lyte III silhouette. Here is just a clean, sleek colorway that is great rocking with jeans or shorts, not like we’ll ever have a summer again here in the U.S. Mother Nature has turned into a cruel bitter woman. The grey suede upper accented with hints of teal and team with black mesh makes this a simple and efficient kick. The teal on the outsole and heel cup tie everything together. These can be yours for the low price of €132 that is roughly $180.00. If you’re balling like that hit up Titolo
Ras Kass is in more groups that I can count, but this one is probably the most interesting. Mr Lawnge (Black Sheep) and Ras Kass, the Golden State Warrior, have linked up to form the White Crows. Their introduction together comes on “Kick Rocks” complete with a certain UK group sample. I won’t front the beat is pretty dope. Ras is 0 for life on putting out group records, so let’s hope this one sees the light of day, just for the sake of statistics.
What does it take to be a rapper? What kind of shape need one be in to rock the m.i.c.? Well, when you’re rapping with Imperial you must be in peak physical condition. If not, he’ll serve as the motivator you never had and possibly wanted. Enter K.I.N.E.T.I.K. who is Imperials partner in rhyme on Pencils Not Pistols, which is out now Illect Recordings. Imperial pushes his compadre to the limit, helping him achieve the goals and results which will result in nothing short of lyrical superiority. They have there tough times along the way, I mean who drop kicks cheeseburgers? Those cheeseburgers did nothing to you man, what’s up with that? And did you see the anger Imperial slapped the chicken nugget away. What’s McDonalds ever done to you? Agnes & Lupus did a great job directing the Rocky-inspired video for “Go Hard” which also features Tone Richardson on the hook. The video is fun and goofy but the message is right on point, keep pushing and all your dreams can come true.
When you bought your copy of Detroit Deli and saw the tracklist you got amped. You know you did, we all skipped right to the track. Black Milk did his thing on the beat. It would have been nice if their differences with Baatin could have been reconciled. One last new and complete track with the original line-up would have been dope. Unfortunately we lost Dilla two short years later. We eventually got a Baatin reunion only to lose him before the completion of Villa Manifesto. Though he had worked on numerous tracks for the album, it was tough listening to him and Dilla on the album knowing that they were not with us anymore.
Producer L’Orange has just agreed to a deal with Mello Music Group. The deal is described below…
After selling out the first three pressings of his vinyl in under 30 days, old soul producer L’Orange has signed a 3 album production deal with MMG for 2014 & 2015. Slated to create a combination of projects from instrumental, to jazz singers, to alternative edged collaborations with emcees, L’Orange is looking to bring his distinct sound to Mello’s audience, while continuing to push the boundaries of his musical explorations.
I am excited to hear all three of these projects. Let’s get cracking guys……
