J-Live - Red & The Kid (Single)

Hot on the heels of his last single "I Just Don't", New York veteran emcee J-Live returns with the third single from his upcoming album "His Own Self", which is set to drop on March 17, 2015 and is currently available for preorder over on his Bandcamp site. The song is called "Red & The Kid" and it's a banger, with J-Live rapping about how he learned to DJ as well as about the DJ's that inspired him over an old school instrumental that has my head nodding like crazy. "His Own Self" is shaping up to be crazy. Peep the single below.

J-Live - I Just Don't (Single)

J-Live comes through with his latest single "I Just Don't", which finds the veteran New York rapper letting us know that he just "doesn't give a fuck" over a hypnotic self-produced instrumental. The beat is dope, but its the rhymes and delivery from J-Live that really stand out to me about this song. Anyways, this cut is the second release from J-Live's upcoming album "His Own Self", which is set to drop on March 17, 2015 and is currently available for preorder over on his Bandcamp site.

ChillxWill feat. BriskInThehouse - "911 (Platoon Remix)

ChillxWill is an emcee hailing from Tacoma, Washington who just dropped his crazy third solo album, "Almighty", earlier today on Ill Adrenaline Records. The album is banging and finds ChillxWill rhyming about a variety of topics over head-nodding boom-bap instrumentals that sound like they came straight out of the 90's. In order to celebrate the albums release, Ill Adrenaline decided to drop an exclusive CD/cassette bonus track from the album in the form of a remix for the song "911". The original version is one of my favorite songs on the entire album , but this remix by BreakerHUS is pretty nice as well. Check out the remix (in addition to the video for the original) below and then head on over to iTunes to cop the full album.

The track is called "Hostile Territory" and finds the Twin Perils emcee teaming up with Killarmy/Wu-Tang affiliate 9th Prince over a Mir The Bloody production full of frantic pianos and head nodding drums.

Anyways, peep the song below and be on the lookout that the full album when it drops later this year.

Nice. Peep it below. Also make sure to check out the Free The Optimus website if you like what you hear.
