The word of the week this time round has been “hottest” (ironic considering how fucking cold it’s been). Nothing has dominated these past seven days more than MTV’s annual Hottest MCs in the Game list. Now in case you were simply consumed by the chatter caused by the list this week (we don’t blame you) and missed out on most of the new music, we’ve got you covered. Here are our five favorite releases you might have slept on, from Havoc, Nutso, Silent Knight, Demigodz and Obie Trice.

Even after last year’s incredible (but unfortunately overlooked) First of a Living Breed LP, Homeboy Sandman‘s lyrical tank isn’t even close to empty. The likeable Queens MC gives our feeble brains no rest as he returns with this subdued, but still super lyrical, new cut, “The Plot Thickens.” It looks to warm up his fans across the pond for his string of three shows this week, while keeping his fans at home happy. Stay tuned for Boy Sand’s new studio album, Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent, arriving this spring via Stones Throw.

Aside from the continued debate in the rap writing world about “cultural tourism” (coined by Rap Radar’s own B.Dot), this week was nostalgic, to say the least. Hit the jump to check out this week’s Heroes & Super Villains – shouts to Fearce Vill, SpaceGhostPurrp, Chase N. Cashe, Kami de Chukwu and Truck North.

2012 was a good year for the multi-talented Karriem Riggins, who, after more than a decade in music, released his debut solo album, Alone Together. Said record gets a mini-makeover today as some of the underground’s finest wordsworths, Krondon, Homeboy Sandman, Guilty Simpson and Jonwayne, as well as J Rocc who lends cuts, collide for the “Posse Cut” remix of the penultimate track, “Matador.” Good luck picking a winner for best verse here. Alone Together is out now on Stones Throw.

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.
