Hiero all day. New music from the veteran and capable emcee Pep Love is always welcome. “Prayful Hurt” is mellow track which matches up to his smooth delivery quite well. No word, but I hope this means we will get a new album from the Oakland based rapper.
Respect Game or Expect Flames in stores real soon, August 28th to be exact. The collaborative project between J Rawls (Lone Catalyst) and Casual (Hieroglyphics) will certainly be a must have addition to any self respecting hip-hop heads catalog…….
The Hieroglyphics Crew is coming to a west coast/mid-west city near you, I recommend if you want a real dope experience, then you need to see em in Denver. Coloradans love them some Hiero crew. Here is their summer mixtape which will have to suffice most of us who can’t make it to see em. It’s a free download or you can get some stickers, t-shirt, keychain, etc with a simple donation to the cause.

Heiroglyphics’ 3rd Eye Vision is a solid as a debut album as you can drop. Souls Of Mischief, Pep-Love, Del The Funky Homosapien & Casual took the underground hip-hop industry by store and developed a fan-base that follow the to this day, some 14 years later. Constantly dropping solid albums and defining themselves as solid members of the Rap world.
Pep Love is one of the dopest lyricists of all time, that being said he seems hella uncomfortable in front of the camera……regardless, he still sits high up on my list of emcees…..Casual and Tajai are not to be slept on either. Hieroglyphics!!!
Encore & Hiero member Pep Love have linked a few times over their career, but nothing they have done can touch this. Off of Encore’s Layover album, the return of the black william wallace promises everything this song contains from beginning to end
