Money Making Jam Boys-The Prestige: Jam Boy Magic


Haven’t been this excited for a mixtape in a little while. I’ve only caught the one track (Day Job) but such was the pure hip-hop essence, I’m really confident that this will be of a great standard.

Of course, the individual components of the group help, and being led by the fantastic mic skills of Black Thought is always going to work in anyone’s favour. The list of contributors doesn’t end with the MMJB, as the project is mixed by Mick Boogie and Terry Urban, as well as featuring some production by Thought’s fellow Roots member ?uestlove, and some Jazzy Jeff scratches in for good measure. To me, it sounds like the perfect formula for a solid hip-hop mixtape. You know what to do.

Money Making Jam Boys-Day Job


Maybe not a name that’s familiar yet, but when you see who the group is comprised of, you’ll be looking to change that: de facto leader Black Thought of The Roots, accompanied by frequent Roots collaborators Dice Raw, Truck North, P.O.R.N. and STS. Talented bunch of guys, and with a mixtape on the horizon (Feb. 3rd) we’re treated to a very solid track from The Prestige: Jam Boy Magic.

The old-school, raw feel of this production will really win over the hip-hop heads, with pounding drum and bass hits tied with a mesmerising set of melodies and catchy sampled hook, making for an addictive and captivating production that is comfortably one of the best beats in recent memory. The raps certainly deliver too, and there aren’t any weak links at all in the set. Very, very strong hip-hop.

Underground Hip-Hop Part 2

You may recall some time ago, I wrote a post in which I put up a couple of tracks from some underground hip-hop artists that you might have missed.

Well, it’s back again, and there are some artists in here that you’ve probably never heard of, and some you may have. Either way, between them they provide music to suit a variety of hip-hop styles.

The same theory applies to this post as applied to its predecessor: This is merely my way of sifting through the hundreds of artists that drop tracks daily and showing you a few more to check for. Check them out and broaden your horizons.
