The first car that saw when we got the 7th Annual Gold Coast Concours And Bimmerstock was this sick graffiti’d up 1987 Mercedes 420sel. The artwork was done by Long Island based artist Cozi Nice who told us that he did this piece in tribute to Eric B And Rakim’s classic album “Paid In Full” and that time period in HipHop history. The was also done up on the inside and of course Cozi had dumb loud system in there. Hopefully in the near future we can link up with Cozi for a interview about this wip and his other art work.

Kooley High IS Back With New Visuals “Ceiling”
We’re hyped to see North Carolina Hip-Hop crew Kooley High back at with new treats! Their latest single “Ceiling” features a piano driven sample, a light boom bap beat pattern, a dope bassline and a Outkast “Aliens” sample in the hook. Tab-One and Charlie smarts spit some tight bars about elevating to higher heights, hence the name Ceiling ;).
“Ceiling” will be featured on Kooley High‘s upcoming album “Never Come Down” which will be executive produced by 9th Wonder. As you may or may not know 9th Wonder scooped up Rapsody while she a part of Kooley High back in the day so it’s pretty dope that he’s now executive producing their new album. Will we see a Rapsody cameo on the new album??? We hope so, that would be epic!!
In case ya’ll forgot (“Kooley Is High” 2009)
“Flip It” by 1905 #HipHop Instrumental
We’re diggin the chillhop vibes of “Flip It”, crafted by 1905. The jazzy piano sample, boom bap drum pattern and thick bass make this a nice treat for the ears. Flip it is featured on the HipHop instrumental album “2 Days” by 1905. The album is full of sample driven, chill, jazzy boom bap beats.
Heavily influenced by graffiti and hash oil, 1 9 0 5 pushes beats through a sampler, the same one he has previously digged with the pope. On day 1 he created a joint and it became light. On day 2 he did this f*****’ tape. The rest of the week he just chilled. ~ XQRSNS Records
