Song Review-Dudley Boyz by Westside Gunn featuring Action Bronson produced by Alchemist

  Song Review-Dudley Boyz by Westside Gunn featuring Action Bronson  produced by Alchemist by Dan-O Have I told you how much I love Westside Gunn’s Flygod album? It has the same crushing sense of hardcore content with a twist of dark humor that Sean Price was so great at creating. In addition, it features productionContinue reading “Song Review-Dudley Boyz by Westside Gunn featuring Action Bronson produced by Alchemist”

Song review-See a Key(Ki’) by Skyzoo featuring Jadakiss produced by Thelonius Martin

Song review-See a Key(Ki’) by Skyzoo featuring Jadakiss produced by Thelonius Martin by Dan-O The narrative that NY hip hop is dead has been bolstered by the poor sales of Troy Ave’s album Major Without A Deal (which you won’t catch me writing about, I don’t kick people when they are down), but it’s stillContinue reading “Song review-See a Key(Ki’) by Skyzoo featuring Jadakiss produced by Thelonius Martin”

Song review-City Boy Blues by Action Bronson Chauncy Sherod produced by 88-Keys and Party Supplies by Dan-O Modern movies aren’t sleek anymore. You can’t get out of a romantic comedy nowadays under three hours running time and the director will try and make you feel better in interviews by specifying that the REAL cut was fourContinue reading “Song review-City Boy Blues by Action Bronson featuring Chauncy Sherod produced by 88-Keys and Party Supplies”

Song of The Year-The Imperial featuring Action Bronson, Royce Da 5’9 and Black Thought produced by Statik Selektah by Dan-O The most popular DJ albums fall into one of two categories.

Mixtape Review-The Drive In Theatre by Curren$y

Mixtape Review-The Drive In Theatre by Curren$y by Dan-O After reviewing music from the New Orleans juggernaut Curren$y for years I’ve become guilty of a cardinal musical sin. I realized after my second listening of his new mixtape The Drive In Theatre that he had spoiled me. The run of projects he has had inContinue reading “Mixtape Review-The Drive In Theatre by Curren$y”

Song of The Year-Contemporary Man by Action Bronson produced by Party Supplies by Dan-O Action Bronson has trotted his oddball lyricism around hip hop working with the very best producers in the world (Alchemist, Harry Fraud) so its anyone’s guess why the stream of consciousness strange sample meets off the top of the dome barsContinue reading “Song of The Year-Contemporary Man by Action Bronson produced by Party Supplies”

Song of the year-Strictly 4 My Jeeps by Action Bronson produced by Harry Fraud by Dan-O I am one of these dudes that can’t help but talk about hip hop with whoever can converse about it.

Smoke Dza featuring Action Bronson-Turnbuckle Music

I’m not sure what I love more, the deadpan Action Bronson first line “Once again this the quintessential stud muffin” or the fact that at some point in the process of making the years best pro-wrestling inspired song Smoke Dza and Bronson agreed that they REALLY needed a nonsensical reggae intro/outro to complete this song. The thick, muddy groaning Harry Fraud beat, the Run-Dmc style back and forth chorus, Marty Janetty reference, it doesn’t get much better. This is track nine off of Smoke Dza’s Rugby Thompson album which is full of excitement. If you ran into me I’ve told you about it.
