If you ask me to review an album by Grayskul, I am going to say, “Yes,” especially if that album features Aesop Rock, Raekwon, DJ Spark and other fairly awesome contributors. Especially also if it is called Zenith and arrived September 17th to relieve a relative drought of exceptional releases. That said, g’head and hit the jump to check out the review for Zenith in its entirety – Spotify album stream included.

Mathematics has been ridin’ with the Wu since their inception, and although the crew’s loyal deejay may not be credited as a core member, there’s no denying his affiliation with the crew, or his production skills. With several albums to his credit, Mathematics is gearing up for his latest release, The Answer, and in doing so, crafts this banger featuring his Wu brothers Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Method Man and Raekwon for “4 Horsemen.” Now press play and bang head repeatedly.



I got a crack spot, a G5 I’ve never flown/ I got a shark, a dog with a solid gold bone… – Ghostface Killah

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.
