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.

What was that we were saying about Roc Marciano‘s guest verses? The Long Island lyricist’s streak gets even hotter on Zilla Rocca & The Shadowboxers‘ drum-thumping, riff-riddled new joint, “Young Blood,” produced by Has-Lo. Available now on iTunes, the track will land on Zilla & The Shadowboxers’ upcoming No Vacation For Murder LP. Stay tuned for another new track, “Stormy Monday,” featuring The Kid Daytona and Has-Lo, dropping April 9.

After being “Welcomed to America” by Skyzoo and Havoc last month, New Zealand producer P-Money (again, not to be confused with London’s Grime spitter, P Money) enlists the expert services of Roc Marciano on this new cut, “The Professional.” Marco absolutely shreds this uber-funky, Blaxploitation-esque beat, which itself deserves huge props. P-Money’s Gratitude LP (Duck Down Music/Dirty Records/Dawn Raid LLC) is one to keep an eye (and ear) out for.

RocMarci

Roc Marciano may draw inspiration from the Martin character on his new track, but it’s far from comical. The Long Island lyricist laces a chilling piano loop with his quintessentially subtle, snarling rhymes (they’re more like threats, really) for three terrifying minutes. If Reloaded isn’t already in your collection, you’re losing.

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.
