2012 wasn’t the busiest year for Slaine in comparison to his long-running career, but the La Coka Nostra/Special Teamz rep has plenty on his plate in the months ahead. In addition to the SlaineChild collaboration with Mad Child, he’s also prepping his new solo album, The Boston Project, of which 2DBZ grants us with a sample today. Listen to “The Fuckery Hotel” featuring Kali and REKS.

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.

La Coka Nostra’s dropped another quick visual off of their latest album, Masters of the Dark Arts. This visual is… interesting…. to say the least, but the Ill Bill produced joint is still as aggressive as ever. Check it after the jump.

Masters Of The Dark Arts

When Everlast announced that he would be leaving the group due to personal issues, it instantly thrust the status of La Coka Nostra into question. Thankfully, the collective has hummed along almost seemingly without a hiccup as their latest project, Masters of the Dark Arts, keeps the aggressive rhymes coming from start to finish. Hit the jump to read this review in its entirety and album stream, via Spotify.

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.
