Willie The Kid preps the heads for The Crates with two new long-drawn burners. The newest of the two is a verbal assault over an Axelrod track (if it ain’t David, then slap me). Featuring guest Lawtowner, Termanology. Willie goes off.

Last week, the first leak off of August 2nd’s project arrived in the form of this film score-like journey…
Peedi Crakk goes stupid AWOL over those Golden Era gemmies…but that’s to be expected, honestly. If you’ve paid any attention in your life, you’d know that dukes is ut serious about his hip hop shit…and he always shows off somethin’ extra retardededed when it’s lunchroom-basement hour. Stays as one of the most interesting styles to witness, never quite predictable, that Peedi guy. Crazy to hear the Cannon Click’s Chinko Da Great doing the back & forth with PC on that Kane shit.

Maffew Ragazino returns to DJ Premier‘s Headqcourterz show on Sirius XM. As always, with these live freestyle bits, the guy exhibits an unending spill of ferocity in both delivery and wordplay (over a slept-on Raekwon/RZA banger, no less). Bars R Us, the return!
More Company Flow reunion/finale show footage from Saturday night at Santos. This time, in the form of crystal clear audio…all 1.5 hours of it. You get Bobbito Garcia‘s heartfelt trip down memory lane (as the introduction), El-P‘s revamped 808-kitted instrumental to “Blind” and a dustier-but-digital version of “Patriotism,” Bigg Jus‘ “Kingspitter” with a new verse from his Co Flow counterpart, a well-timed shout out to the Murdoch family, all of Mr. Len‘s extended cut solos, Jean Grae in a bloody schoolgirl uniform (of course you can’t see this), plus Pharoahe Monch‘s journalistic intermission. Oh yeah, and more. Downloadable too!
Props to Ming-Tzu at GrandGood for the incredible German-engineered audio capture technology. Props also to SPIN and Kyle Dean Reinford for the photo.
Company Flow Reunion, Live @ Santos Party House, July 16, 2011
Maffew Ragazino has been pretty at-home in front of the camera lately, the proof is here in his most recent visual aids.
“Motley Crue” not only flips my favorite joint by Da Youngstaz, but also serves as a hefty (re)introduction to the abilities of Maff (who goes off-the-deep with the flow) and the newest C.I.C.O. inductees, Steady Fam. I like these cats, man. They’ve got the young energy, but have a marinated edge to their thought process and rhyme patterns. Shit ain’t just weed, girls, and swag. Looking forward to more gems.

Next up is the Jon Connor-collaborative ode to the olden, golden days. Check the gobs of old footage cut in throughout the video. Gives a nice referential spin to the joint. Peace to Boundless NY, as well.
Boundless Music‘s own DJ Teddy King and Rugged One recently dropped the sequel to Get Into The Party Life, a dedication to some classic body movers. I’ll go on record to say that this second volume seems a lot more varied, with deeper digging on both sides. It’s not just the standard mix of “Heartbeat”, “Don’t Look Any Further”, “Square Biz”, and the other essential cook out pleasers (there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of those joints – I’m sayin’ that you may just gain a new favorite 2-step theme from the not-so-obvious selections found here). Expect some of that funk, boogie, soulful disco, and other shit that you’d really want to hear when out for an evening in the world.
Freeway serves up a new helping of proper flow over an ill background brought to you by Jahlil Beats. Unfortunately for those of us spitting off mucho curses in the every day dialogue, this is the clean version.
MC eater Action Bronson, as a guest of Josh Ozersky, is treated to a wonderful spread of Greek butters (not literally) at Astoria’s own BZ Grill. Pause all of this beforehand, but BZ’s meat work, as previewed for the upcoming Meatopia event, is such that Bronson throws priority on an afternoon spent around their delectable gyros over an evening of live rapping (paid rapping, even). Might not be the greatest career move, but at least it makes for one less easily-angered, starving artist on the planet (too many rappers live a life of malnourishment – sad).
Taking the whip across that 59th Street Bridge…ASAP!
