For this week of Comprehensive Beatdown, Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G listen to the newest offering from Young Fathers, “White Men are Black Men Too,” which was released on April 7 on Big Dada Recordings. Young Fathers continues pushing boundaries and challenging listeners, not only with their unorthodox approach to production but also with provocative topics covered in the lyrics. The group has found itself at the center of a little bit of controversy over the title of the album, and the guys will discuss that a little bit this week.
In this week’s episode, you’ll also hear music from J-Live, Potatohead People, Hoffman, and Theory Hazit. “Shitty Tracks From Our Friends” returns this week, as well as a local track from Tira D, which was submitted by the Hood Hippie Blog.
Thanks for listening.
Swiss producer Soulseize puts his stamp on a track from Theory Hazit’s Modern Marvels featuring Long Beach’s LMNO. Any remix worth it’s weight in Swiss Mocha brings something new to the original or should not dare bother. This is that kind of reworking. Check it out!
Like it? You can pick up the original, via Illect Records, on any one of the following sites
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.

Theory Hazit is releasing Fall Of The Light Bearer this summer and you are going to want to cop it. “Watch Out” is the first video from the Scribbling Idiot’s project and comes complete with some Mrs Hill vocals. “Watch Out” consists of everything we’ve come to appreciate from Theory, honesty, wordplay, complexity, it’s all there. This has that summertime feel to it, you are going to want to be bumping this in your jeeps this summer.
Cas Metah of the Scribbling Idiots crew throws up his W in the air and calls upon Shabazz The Disciple and Hell Razah known now as Heaven Razah on his newest track “A Stone’s Throw” out now via Illect Recordings. Shabazz and Razah are known as 2/3’s of the group T.H.U.G. Angelz, with Ayatollah. The nod factor on this one is a 17 on a scale of 1-10. Produced by Theory Hazit with cuts from EF Cuttin and Mista Sinista (X-ecutioners). Cas Metah has been making some really solid contributions in the hip-hop realm for a while now. I dig this collaboration and Theory Hazit is really developing as a producer. He is adding a lot of polish and variety to his tracks. The difference between a beat maker and a producer is world’s apart sonically.
“A Sinner’s death is a stone’s throw away”.

Emcee Theory Hazit & producer Cream Of Beats are known collectively as DC Comets. They first worked together on Theory’s track “Emit Gninrut” in 2007. They began working together on a regular basis in 2010 and soon realized they had enough material for several albums. On March 25th of this year we’ll get a chance to check out some of that material on Monolith Monster. To build up to the project they have dropped a couple videos from the album, “Reconsilence/I.O.U.” and “AstroKnowMe”.

Less than a week away from the release of Scribbling Idiots Invitation Only on Illect Recordings. They have been dropping tracks from the project leading up to it’s formal release on March 11th. “Victorious” features lyrical darts from Redcloud, Cas Metah, Playdough, Sojourn, Manchild, and Jurny Big slung over Theory Hazit production. That’s an all-star line up for your weak butt! SO much rappity rap that you’ll need to rewind it 28 times just to process everything. It took me 10 times just to digest Redcloud’s verse. “Kick a Mormon is the chest for knocking on my door”…WHAT!

As March 11th gets closer and closer, the Scribbling Idiots keep blessing us with new tracks from Invitation Only. This one teams up Theory Hazit and JustMe with KJ52. They all hold their own over Theory’s production with EF Cuttin slicing up the hook. Theory Hazit spits one of the dopest verses I’ve heard in a minute. He’s easily one of my favorite emcees doing it right now, if you don’t know, do some research and find out. Illect Recordings even did a mixtape, on an actual tape, by DJ Aslan.
“5%ers call me 85 / Ocho Cinco with a lazy eye / I bring the pain so hard / Man you can’t wait to die” – (c) Theory Hazit

Cop that cassette tape mixed by DJ Aslan…….
Theory Hazit and Cream of Beat are collectively known as Dc Comets! Still no word on when this album is going to be dropping, but my interested are peaked. Theory has been on my radar for a while. Dude is excellent on the mic.
Theory Hazit dropped his album Thr3e, on Humble Beast records and it is a doozy….I think if you like raw untapped music that could have easily come from the Boom-Bap era, then you’ll love this album. Go pick it up and see for yourself. This is a good enough introduction to what you can expect from the project
