With the release of Book of Savvy 2 slated to drop later this month and rumors of The Bottom Line being completed, Savvy (Crown Me Entertainment) drops a loosie that he recorded for the Nat Turner Soundtrack. “Revolt” features a fiery call to arms from the Jacktown emcee in the form of a singular verse bookended by an iconic Malcolm X speech over bass heavy production by Mack XI. Get familiar with the name Savvy, if you aren’t already, this is gearing up to be his summer.
In this week’s episode of Comprehensive Beatdown, Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G check out the newest album from Tal National, a band that neither of the guys was familiar with before this week (embarrassingly so). Hailing from Niger, Tal National juggles being the country’s most popular band with working to differentiate their sound from their Afrobeat contemporaries in Nigeria while also navigating life as a secular band in a fundamentalist Muslim country. “Zoy Zoy” is their second international album and will make a great summer soundtrack.
The guys also listen to a new track from Tyler, the Creator and a classic track from Crooked Lettaz in celebration of the 16th anniversary of the release of “Grey Skies.” As if all that weren’t enough, Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G offer a whole lot of unsolicited NBA playoff analysis and bad Tim Tebow jokes. Thanks as always for the support.
This week on Comprehensive Beatdown, Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G listen to and discuss “The Ecology,” Fashawn’s sophomore album on Mass Appeal. The guys abandon some of their normal segments to focus on artists who are on the bill for Blender 6, Jackson’s favorite genre-mash-up show, which is put on by Elegant Trainwreck Productions and Homework Town Records (Silent G is a co-owner of both).
Come see Silent G DJ at Offbeat on March 12. Opening for AF the Naysayer. 9 PM. $5.
Check out Blender 6 at Offbeat (151 Wesley Ave.) on March 14th. 8 PM. $5. Featuring Tim Lee 3, Jackals, Passing Parade, Brik a Brak, and Tyler Keith.

Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G host the inaugural episode of “Comprehensive Beatdown,” a podcast to shine light on new music. In this week’s episode, the guys break down “B4.DA.$$” from Joey Bada$$. A track from the new Aphex Twin EP is discussed as well as “Blacker the Berry,” Kendrick Lamar’s most recent single release. “Comprehensive Beatdown” introduces its segment entitled “Shitty Songs From our Friends,” where a horrible song is selected by a local Jackson artist, musician, or business owner, and submitted to the podcast for review. DJ Young Venom submitted something called “Honey Dip” and the guys listen to it for the first time on the podcast. The episode is wrapped up with a look at a song from Jackson hip hop artist Dolla Black. Thanks for tuning in.
Witness the new video from Elite The Omen for “Chiraq Flow-Style” from his album N.W.O. (New World Order). A raw blend of Mississippi and Chicago styles.

Skipp Coon, after releasing his third album Miles Garvey, has unearthed a video for a remix from an earlier project. “It Is What It Is (Spirituals Remix), is a new version of a track that can be found on Sophomore Slump Vol 1: Independent’s Day. Could this be the origin of one of Jackson’s most prolific emcees? Who’s got the jazz? This got the jazz!!
As Black Milk prepares to bring the world If There’s A Hell Below, the coldest emcee PyInfamous grabs some Synth Or Soul and announces his return from a short hiatus. On “WANW” Py brings us two minutes of straight lyrical snapping. #Jackals
If you are not up on PyInfamous, then simply click here and check out his resume, it’s quite stellar.
I stand behind the statement I made a few years ago, Coke Bumaye is the biggest rapper in his city. His resume is impeccable. He recently dropped Amerikaz Nightmare, and now he’s back with a couple new tracks on The Nightmare Continues (EP). Be sure to cop everything you see with Coke’s name on it. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Enjoy!
