Rhymefest and Phonte Release Hip-Hop’s First 3D Video

Day by day, my respect for ‘Fest grows. He’s genuinely an innovative guy, and this video cements that belief. Always looking to push boundaries, this is undoubtedly something we will be seeing more of.

The visuals are not alone in building hype for El Che though, as track itself is actually rather good too. Liking the beat, loving Phonte’s hook and I’m beginning to gradually appreciate Rhymefest’s unique flow.

Rhymefest and David Cameron. Yes, You Read That Right.

“Grammy Award winner Rhymefest can trace his history with the new British PM David Cameron back to a controversial 2006 meeting in London. After Cameron complained that rap music “encourages people to carry guns and knives,” Rhymefest wrote to the politician. From there, Cameron arranged to hear Rhymefest’s point of view at the Commons.

Despite Labour’s Stephen Pound labelling the meeting “a step too far” in striving to gain the youth vote, David Cameron expressed that meeting with Rhymefest was “very positive.” The two agreed about the existence of violence in rap, while disagreeing on some of the motives behind the lyrics. Overall, the sit-down was productive, as Rhymefest described “discussion is revolution. Discussion is what will solve the problems of poverty and violence.”

Rhymefest hopes to continue the discussion with David Cameron as he takes his new position of Prime Minister. With Rhymefest’s sophomore album, El Che, seeing a June 8th release date, the Chicago emcee plans to send Cameron a copy of the 16 track effort to listen to in his office. Though Cameron has inherited great responsibilities, Rhymefest is confident that the two shall meet again to discuss Hip Hop over tea”.

Rhymefest and John Mayer-Letter Video

Haven’t watched this yet due to a rather important football (soccer for you Americans) game going on right now. However, it’s halftime so I won’t hold it back from those of you who aren’t watching it.

Looking forward to checking this out though, and you can grab the audio/the full mixtape here.

Rhymefest-Dangerous 5:18 Mixtape

‘Fest drops off his latest mixtape, the precursor to his El Che album that drops 18th May. I expect most of you checked out the John Mayer-assisted Letter, so be sure to give the whole mixtape a look over too. There’s actually a video coming for the aforementioned track too, which I’m thoroughly looking forward to.

Rhymefest (and John Mayer)-Letter

Remember Wale’s absolutely awesome track, Letter? With John Mayer on the hook? Yeah you do.

This has the exact same hook, and appears to be destined for Rhymefest’s upcoming El Che album, and will definitely appear on his upcoming mixtape. The production has changed, and I’m not sure if it’s better than the Wale version in that sense, but the verses are just as good and this is definitely one worth checking out if you liked the previous version.

Quick Blast: Rhymefest & Skyzoo

As the title suggests, a new track by Skyzoo and Rhymefest. This track is pretty good, I’ll let the email describe it:

Rhymefest ended up just being at the studio during Skyzoo’s session, the two hit it off very quickly with help from this K-Salaam and Beatnik track and the concept for “Crack The Code” was born. Skyzoo’s verse centers on the intricacies of Chicago, while Rhymefest raps about the nature of New York City. It’s an homage to two great homes for Hip Hop, and a pairing of two great emcees.”
