Redman understands your missing lighter hardships. Check out “My 2nd Lighter” after the jump and make sure you’ve got a tight grip on your Bic.

PushaT

This past Saturday in Brooklyn, a crowd of Hip-Hop fans gathered ’round for the ninth annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. In addition to a culturally rich environment, was the presence of some of the tri-state’s most decorated rap legends, such as Redman, EPMD and Das Efx, in addition to the acclaimed XXL Freshman, Dizzy Wright, among others. However, the man of the hour was Pusha T who headlined the event. Hit the jump to check out his entire performance, along with my recap and pics.. enjoy.

 

*UPDATE: Seems that Pusha T enjoyed our post enough to RT!

FridayFlips

A big reason we started this Friday Flips series was to use new music as a gateway drug to get folks hooked on some older joints that may have passed them by. So when the new Redman “Hands Up” dropped we knew we had to start bagging up the goods and moving weight immediately. (Figuratively speaking, I don’t need the DEA busting down my door.) That said, hit the jump for our week seven edition of #FridayFlips where we break down Hamilton Bohannon’s widely recognized “Singing a Song for My Mother” sample, reveal where it’s been used elsewhere throughout Hip-Hop history from Ed O.G. to Roc Marciano and of course Redman, and finally, allow you to vote on which emcees from the old to the new you’d like to see collab for an entire LP with the legendary Easy Mo Bee (voting widget included). Let the edutainment begin.. in the meantime, get familiar with Redman’s “Hands Up,” featuring Doitall & Mr. Cheeks.

Another one we missed from 4/20 (hey, give us a break). While his classics with Mef were on the playlist yesterday, Redman went ahead and blessed the masses stoners with a new joint,” Hands Up,” featuring DoItAll and Mr. Cheeks. Easy Mo Bee on the production — and you don’t know how happy it makes us to say that.

RewindWednesdays

Being that my love for Hip-Hop came to fruition at a time when vinyl reigned supreme, I thought it would be fitting to start a new column where we bring it back to the essence and feature some oldies, but goodies, to interrupt your regularly scheduled program of disposable new music. That said, for our inaugural ‘Rewind Wednesdays’ column, it would be fitting to feature De La Soul‘s “Oooh,” featuring Redman. For starters, the native Long Island trifecta released their first single in nearly nine years today! As if that wasn’t reason enough, Brick City’s Redman celebrates being 43 years young today, so all signs point to “Oooh.” Hit the jump for track details, video, lyrics, original cover art and the B-Side breakdown… #RewindWednesdays

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.
