Comprehensive Beatdown is back for episode 15 and this week Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G check out “Surf” from Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment, who are best known as the backing band for the Chance the Rapper. “Surf” is an eclectic debut from the band and includes a plethora of guest spots. Chance himself, who is an official member of the band, is all over the album as well. “Surf” was released as a free download on iTunes on May 28th and had over 600,000 downloads during its first week of release.
The guys also check out new tracks from Killah Priest and Ozay Moore, as well as a local track featuring several Jackson rappers, including Savvy, Doe Hicks, Hollywood Luck, Tricky LT45, Coke Bumaye.
Monolith Monster is an album from Theory Hazit (Scribbling Idiots) and Cream Of Beats who are known collectively as DC Comets. The project dropped in March and was met with acclaim. The last cut on the album, “Intense” is a sort of posse cut featuring Wordsworth (Lyricist Lounge/Punch & Words) and Diana Theodora joining forces lyrically with Theory. It track is exactly what you might assume with a name as such. So how does one turn up the intensity? Simple you get Dert to remix the track and you add 1/3 of the underground legion Lightheaded, Ozay Moore to the mix and the result is instantaneous intensity the likes few ever see. The video is equally as such, you watch expect some sort of torturous outcome for our victim. Though things are not always what they seem. Buy D.C. Comets Monster Monolith by clicking the link below.

Ozay Moore, formerly known as Othello 1/3 of the Lightheaded (Ohmega Watts + Braille + Othello) crew, teams up with Stro Elliot of The Procussions for “Don’t Cry”. Boom bap + soulfulness x fresh bass line = this track. Ozay will be releasing Taking L’$ on Mellow Orange this year. You don’t have to wait to own this track though, it’s available for free download.
