Hot on the heels off of giving Boldy James’ October 15th release, My 1st Chemistry Set, a hard listen, another Motor City rapper, Quelle Chris dropped a nugget for our perusal, October 29th’s Ghost at the Finish Line. The rapper’s third full length album further perpetuates the much beleaguered bankrupt city’s hypnotic hold on the craft. Hit the jump to read the review in its entirety – Spotify album stream included.

We included Denmark Vessey and Quelle Chris‘ “Green Party Swishercrat” collaboration on our Top 50 Songs of 2012 list, so you know we’re happy to see a new record from the pair this afternoon. This time Quelle plays host, and invites Denmark onto the grainy, funky, blaxploitation-esque “Rappin Ass,” crafted by the homie House Shoes. There’s more to this blunted rhymes and a dope beat, though. You can stream and download the joint below, or cop the 7″ single over on the MMG store.

Denmark Vessey continues his tear of left of center videos, this time for the Scud One produced “They Schweepy.” The video depicts the Crown Nation emcee rhyming in front of some tired vagrants as you beg to wonder whose consumed more lysergid, Denmark or the camera. Jesus Christ Superstar x LSD x Rap. Don’t sleep…hit that jump. #CrownNation

Crown Nation’s Denmark Vessey continues his weekly video barrage, this time with #TeamDirtyPiss. The hard, glitchy production are a perfect fit for Khalif’s visuals, which in my opinion make this Denmark’s best effort to date. Despite Denmark’s advice, this might be a better look than niacin…but one of the perks of working from home is the absence of drug tests, so don’t take my word for it. Hit the jump for quotables and visuals…

Denmark Vessey – “Cult Classic”     Latest video in Denmark’s weekly leak series. I’d Rather Be Making Music Vol. 2 has to be coming soon, right?  


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.
