Milo – Over the carnage rose a voice prophetic

Scallops Hotel aka Milo drops an out of the blue tape!

Been a minute, that we’ve not heard from the Milwaukee wordsmith, and its always a genesis of random ideas, and an improvisation of sound.

Very few in the game, playing this original, eclectic niche 😎

Bump the mad fresh MILO LP, over the carnage rose a voice prophetic below.

Dumbfoundead – Foreigner

Dumbfoundead’s newest collective (which includes the dope-ass, YOX), BORN CTZN  marks the game with an EP.

Heavy overtones of American and Korean culture and splish-splash can be heard.

“The Foreigner project is for all the outsiders. As an Asian-American (a.k.a. gyopo) I never knew where I belonged. I had two identities, neither one being fully accepting me. Even when I visited Korea, my home country, I felt like a Foreigner. While I didn’t fully understand the language, I was still embraced by those who followed my music. This mini-album is my first project ever distributed in Korea and I wanted to flip the word ‘Foreigner’ (which is usually used in a negative way) into something positive.”

Bump the Foreigner EP from one of the dopest Asian-American rapper in the game!

Locksmith – Home

Watch a live set from one of the realest tracks off the Olive Branch LP.

Real hip-hop shit coming right through your speakers!

Locksmith’s last verse is mad lyrical and deep:

We all have issues in life regardless of our distinctions. I know my biggest hurdle was easily overthinking. Its like paying admission to take a trip on a cruise, but you can’t enjoy the view cause you constantly scared of sinking.  You blink then its finished with. How come we always downplay our strengths and embellish all of our blemishes. We mimic what we see as wealth, expending our energy still pretending when its easier to be yourself. I feel the shift when I shit that out of my own, when you understand your worth, then its like you’re traveling home. The people that you meet and the new places you venture, can only make sense if you sense them before you’ve entered. And they say its silly what I’m chasing, they’d rather save face than brace being complacent. I did my best to try to brace them and break the walls before it breaks them.
