We’re feeling this joint called “Thorns” by San Diego emcee, Frosty. The beat crafted by Steve Vicous has some dope middle eastern/Asian sounding instrumental sample in it that make you want to keep hitting the repeat button. Frosty spit some dope lyrical, multi syllable bars that almost had a spoken word flow to them.
“Thorns” is off of Frosty’s EP called “Authenticated” which dropped a few days ago and it’s got some joint s on it!
THIS IS HIPHOP!
Authenticated is the second release in the continuing AudioGraff series. The AudioGraff series is a collaborative effort between Steve Vicous, the prolific musical director creates his sample based audio wall and Frosty the Know-matic paints a colorful vocal masterpiece of lyrics and thought provoking punchlines. Authenticated continues where first AudioGraff EP left off, getting a little more personal and going in depth on Frosty’s personal experiences growing up in the rough neighborhood of Southeast San Diego. With this 6 song EP Authenticated; Frosty The Know-Matic remains within his Hip Hop roots delivering head nodding beats and clever word play making this project timeless.
“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
“I’m So Philly” By Kareem Idris #HipHop Dopeness
Philly emcee Kareem Idris released a dope album last week called “The Year In White”. The album if packed with boom bap, HipHop/Jazz beats and lots of knowledge of self inspired bars. We really like a lot of the joints on this album but one of our favorite’s is “I’m So Philly”. In the song Kareem does a really descriptive summary on Philly life. The beat is crafted by Chem Czar who chops up the jazzy piano loop nicely. THIS IS HIPHOP!!
