According to DJ Skizz, Marco Polo gave him a sample that matched his “dunny dun sound,” and a few cuts and a MPC session later, the beat for “Triboro Thoro” was born.

GrimyAwards

Weighing in at 17 hefty tracks, the album is best summarized as “The hardcore Hip-Hop with heart, like nitroglycerin/ The type of rap you feel in your cardiac/ The grimy, illmatical boom bap, mathematical goon rap” (“Truth”). It’s a mix of barbed wire for breakfast, tough guy lyricism, everyday wisdom, and personal meditations-all told through the meticulously calculated flows over timeless production and dynamic cuts. So without further adieu, we present you with The Grimy Awardshit the jump for the full review and Spotify album stream.

Drama aside, we present to you our five favorite slept-on releases from the past week. Props to Eddie B, Harry Fraud, Sean Price, Pharoahe Monch, Wispers, Kosha Dillz, DJ Skizz, Lil Fame and Ill Bill this time round.

SXSW

DJ Skizz and Petey Cologne have been holding down 89 Tech 9, a/k/a/ WNYU’s Halftime Show alongside DJ Eclipse and Mars One for 12 and 11 years, respectively, so when these two unite for a mixtape, best believe that shit’s gonna be on point. To take it one step further, the duo linked up for The Official SXSW Mixtape, Undivided Attention (sponsored by Fat Beats & FITTED Hawaii), which they took in hand on their recent trip to Austin for the mecca don music festival. The tracklist is dope on paper (hit the jump to peep), but an even better listen, which was proven as I gave this a thorough listen this morning during the second half (pun kinda intended) of the New York City Marathon.

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.
