The new J.Cole single called “Crooked Smile” featuring the legendary TLC reminds me of those early 90’s era HipHop and R&B songs with soulful melodies and commercial appeal. This is about as commercial as I’m gonna get on SugarCayne.com lol but it’s a good song 4sho. It’s funny because while I was listening to the song for the first time I was getting happy because J.Cole wasn’t saying the n-word…then the last vers came….. and there they were, 2 N-Bombs smh….It’s like J.cole has it in his contract to put that word in everyone of his songs….good grief!! 🙁
BTW, This post is for all ya’ll so called HipHop heads that never check out post from HipHop artist unless the radio, MTV or BET is playing it. Yep the same ones that always claim real HipHop is dead but don’t know who emcee’s like Homeboy Sandman are…this one’s for you….now go check out some of the other dope HipHop that this site has to offer!:)
“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!!
Be sure to check out the rest of “The Year In White” Kareem drops lots of jewels on the this album
“This Album was created and compiled during my year as an Iyawo. We give thanks to the Egun and the Orisha for their blessing and assistance. Ase” ~Kareem Idris

Bremen, Germany based producer Dramadigs just released a instrumental album for his 2014 HipHop album “Bei Aller Liebe”. One of our favorite instrumentals on this album is “Servietten vor die Säue”. The vocal chorus sample over that had, sharp , boom bap drum kits bangs HARD!! The addition of that bass line melody complete the track.
