9thWonder

I think a lot of people don’t show enough love to 9th Wonder; this is strange, as his diverse talents make him quite the well rounded producer (I’ll take him over a Lex Luger or a Mike WiLL Made It beat any day of the week) and having worked with everyone from Buckshot to Kendrick Lamar has allowed the North Carolina beat maker to explore a bunch of different sounds.But what I’ve always loved about 9th is his approach to crafting the right mood with the tapes he makes. If it’s been a while since you’ve bumped a beat project, Bladey Made (Grandma’s Blades) is the soundtrack for you.

 

The tape, which is named after Beulah Mae Jarrett Douthit, 9th Wonder’s grandmother who got the nickname of “Bladey Mae” after being known for brandishing a blade while living in a very segregated part of the South to defend her family from any potential criminals and miscreants, features the producer working in his wheelhouse through his soulful and head bobbing samples that are begging to be rapped over. Check out the stream down below and make sure to pick the dope project up.

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
