Brooklyn emcee Famoso drops his long awaited mixtape, Before Tha Dope Comes, exclusively here at KevinNottingham.com. Hosted and mixed by DJ Concept, the new mixtape includes features from Shabaam Sahdeed, Termanology, Sha Stimuli, Bekay, Jaz-O, Statik Selektah, Block McCloud, Rap-P, Curtains and many more.
Some have a bad day, others a bad month, and for those really going through it, a bad year. For Bekay, it was 15 months of back to back heart break, where he lost both friends and family to murder and illness. Bekay has always used music as an outlet to work through life’s speed bumps, but what happens when those speed bumps become mountains? On “15 Months of Bloody Violins,” Bekay returns to the mic after taking an inevitable hiatus to purge his mind of the trails and tribulations that have kept him at bay from what he loves most – rapping his ass off. Call this song Bekay’s catharsis, or call it plain insanity, either way Bekay hasn’t lost a step and spits with even more ferocity than even his most die hard of fans are used to. Produced by DJ Morte of Buenos Aires, “15 Months of Bloody Violins” is Bekay’s grand re-entrance, so stay tuned as he gets set to launch more music from his Horror Flick Entertainment imprint.
After having composed tracks for the likes of Tragedy Khadafi, Termanology, Blaq Poet and M.O.P., among others, the French production team known as Alterbeats deliver their debut producer compilation album _The French Revolution. Including guest features from the likes of both legendary and underground mainstays, such as Sadat X, AG, Chief Kamachi, Block McCloud, Reef The Lost Cauze, Bekay, Red Eye, Shabaam Sahdeeq and more, Alterbeats unleash their soundtrack to the human and individual struggle to live free. The French Revolution_ is now available to stream in its entirety, or you may purchase as either a digital download, or CD (via UGHH).
16 year old rapper and James Madison High School student DOV unleashes “Ghost Rhymer,” a song which documents the sexual scandals and other tales of debauchery that have ensued at the Brooklyn school that has earned the moniker “Horndog High.” Using the instrumental from the Skillz’s tell all single “Ghost Writer” (2000, Rawkus Records), “Ghost Rhymer” also features the rapper’s mentor Bekay, who discovered the young emcee in his Midwood neighborhood and has since taken him under his wing as the flagship artist on his Horror Flick Entertainment imprint. Although Horndog High has made national headlines for its sex scandals, DOV doesn’t hesitate to divulge the broad range of lawlessness that occurs on the regular by the school’s faculty – from alleged racism, homophobia, drug-use and more…keep f*ckin’ around, and he’ll put this back out with your names in it.
The french music crew Alterprod presents Alterbeats with his first release.
The French Revolution the June 26th 2012.
