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.

Q-Borough thorough emcee Nutso drops his latest extended play Behind These Bars to the internets via digital download. Sorry kids, no CD. If you’re familiar with Nutso’s music, you know dude consistently goes for the Hip-Hop jugular. With his deep raspy voice, punchlines, wit and storytelling ability, Nutso epitomizes a New York Rapper, a tag which more recently (and thankfully) has lost its stigma with the signings of eXquire and Brosonlino. With features from the likes of Royal Flush, Blacastan, Shabaam Sahdeeq Gab Gotcha and AG Da Coroner (among others), along with production from the likes of J57, Mr. Green, DJ Supa Dave, DJ Concept and more, Nutso delivers a filler-free ep that seems more properly suited for a Lesonic than an iPod. Check out my personal favorite “4 Tha Streetz” below, featuring AG Da Coroner, Shaze & Camiliano, produced by J57, and hit the jump for more verbiage, visuals (courtesy of Good*Fella Media) as well as the entire EP steam. #support

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.
