Snowgoons-The Cypher (Video) ft. Ghostface Killah, Killah Priest, Aspects, & Swisha T

Again, I’m a little late with this, but this can’t be over-looked.

Snowgoons have been dropping a number of projects with different MC’s over the past year or so, but the upcoming album Dynasty will be the first offering in the traditional Snowggons-format since 2010′s Kraftwerk.

I have to say, I’ve been looking forward to this album, and the first single pretty much shows exactly why. As one of the most consistent production teams in underground hip-hop, they have worked with a lot of my favourite MC’s, so it’s great to see them continue on the same path while also mixing it up and adding some more well-known names to the mix.

I don’t really know too much about Aspects but his verse sets the bar for the track, and he manages to hold his own alongside two veterans, as does Swisha T. The real treat for me is hearing MC’s of Ghostface and Killah Priest’s talent over a ‘Goon’s beat. Ghost delivers a solid verse, but I just feel Killah Priest’s style is suited so perfectly to the Snowgoon’s style, and his verse is the highlight for me.

Overall it’s a great track, with solid production and interesting verses, keeping Snowgoons firmly on the right track with their career.

HRSMN (Four Horsemen)-The End Is Near [Trailer]

I’ve been ploughing my way through the first season of the excellent Spartacus as of late and this instrumental, hopefully from The Four Horsemen’s upcoming LP The End Is Near, could be a soundscape lifted straight from the epic series.

Anyway, no vocals on this at present but the beat is tailor-made for these lyricists. Hearing Priest or Bis tear this apart is almost enough to bring an underground head to tears.

Two Raekwon Bonus Cuts


With all the excellent album releases already this month (R.E.K.S., Avenger’s Airwaves, :03 From Gold, Lasers) it’s been easy for me to sleep on certain projects. One project which keeps rising to the top though is Rae’s most recent effort, the accomplished Shaolin vs Wu-Tang which continues Rae’s inroads into bringing those 90′s soundscapes back.

Here are two tracks which were left on Rae’s cutting room floor. Wu-Crime has that signature Wu sound and welcomes vocals from GZA and Priest. The second, Your World & My World with Mobb Deep’s Havoc, is somewhat more darker but neither would have sounded out of place on the LP.

Killah Priest - The Destroyer


Pleased to see that Priest decided to release this joint next from his 3 Day Theory album as it was one of the stand-out tracks from the LP.

As I mentioned in the album review, the guest features of Sonny Seeza (of Onyx), iCON The Mic King, Steven King and Empuls all really come through here.

Killah Priest - Words From A Viking [Video]

The video here forms the prequel to Priest’s Shadows and again the similar Jamie Hewlett-inspired/Wu-Tang visuals are employed to portray the records’ plot line.

The review for KP’s recently released The 3 Day Theory can be digested here.

Ras Kass / HRSMN - This Sh*t Right Here [Video]

This is exciting. The Four Horsemen are once again reunited for a track on Ras Kass’ latest release A.D.I.D.A.S which can be listened to and purchased here.

The Four Horsemen (aka HRSMN) are a supergroup consisting of Ras Kass, Kurupt, Canibus and Killah Priest so you know that this is going to be straight up, off-the-chain, penetrative ear-sex.

Killah Priest-The 3 Day Theory Review


Killah Priest is a busy boy. It seems only weeks ago since he dropped Elizabeth and matter of fact, doesn’t seem that long ago since I was bumping Beautiful Minds with Chief Kamachi. Having been kindly sent an advance copy (no you can’t have it) of The 3 Day Theory I feel it is only right to do the man the justice he deserves by way of a comprehensive review.

Teaming up with the classic Gun 4 Gun producer Kount Fif, Priest ensures that production is all coming from the same page which in fact could be a double-edged sword; will 3 Day Theory be seamlessly integrated or painfully repetitive? The answer? Well somewhere in-between actually. In this case though it is far from a bad thing. Read on. → Continue Reading
