One of today’s dopest emcee’s, Rapsody finally released her first album since she signed with Roc Nation via her longtime label Jamla! The album is called “Laila’s Wisdom” and Rapsody says:
“My new album, “Laila’s Wisdom” hones in on a particular family value passed down from my Grandmother, Laila; “Give me my flowers while I can still smell them”. Through this album, I hope to pass these flowers on to you.”
The album is FIRE period point blank!! If you already know about Rapsody, then you already know she got bars for days and she’s always dropping jewels. The beats are fire as well. She got Boom bap joints, soulful joints and even party joints. This album definitely has a bunch of repeatable’s on it! Check out the snippets then make sure to support good HipHop by purchasing “Laila’s Wisdom”!!
We’ve been following Rapsody since her Kooley High Days when we first saw her on the “Kooley Is High” music video. We use to run that video on just about every episode of The Crazy Al Cayne show when it aired on MNN (cable access) back in the day. Since then Rapsody has been dropping bang after banger. We’re so excited to see her getting that major push for her music now. We gotta give a big shout out to Jay-Z for supporting real HipHop!!
“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
