Pawz One – Out of Bounds (Remix) [feat. Ras Kass & MC Eiht]

“This one is a great presentation of a west cost sound from the middle 90’s. Amazing homage to that period, from music to vocals, even the productions have that analog feel to it, just amazing. Everything reminds me of Dr Dre classics, have that piano sequences/themes that hook you instantly, even the string parts are amazing.”

All DSPs:

The audio single for “Out Of Bounds (Remix)” by Pawz One was released on May 20th this year and today the Los Angeles word-smith dropped the visuals of the track. With appearance from West Coast legends Ras Kass and MC Eiht, the remix is produced by John Henry and the video is shot by Keez Burks.

The original version was released on Pawz One & DJ Dister’s 2020 album “Watch & Learn”. The remix track details how gentrification and media coverage has made a lot of out-of-towners too comfortable and that they can walk into the wrong block or situation and get dealt with. Adding to the vibe is the fact that all three emcees recorded live in the studio together.

Matt Nye – Playa Escalator (feat. Snoop Dogg)

“"Matt Nye" joined forces with "Snoop Dogg" for a rebelious production in the Hip-Hop scene. An unflicting testimonial about the darker side of life, is presented via daring vocals, not too fast for the listeners to follow and think deeply about certain things.”

Tymain Robbins – Being Black Is Scary

This HIP-Hop track is necessary for many, as a sip of air and clean, spring water, to refresh and purify the mind from everything unnecessary.” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

Being Black Is Scary… it really is sometimes. Black people should not have to fear for their lives while praying in church, wearing a hoodie, running through a neighborhood, or while shopping for groceries. Even though I have been Black all my life it takes time to truly understand that there is cost to being Black. This song was inspired by the recent mass shooting in Buffalo, NY that led the inhumane deaths of 10 innocent black lives. The song is heavy, and second verse details a captivating story of a man who is essentially perfect, but that does not shield him from being victim of racial discrimination.

“Love is enough if you are surrounded by your favorite music.

Motian x L-Smooth Mensah – Goldmine

“В этот текст хочется вслушиваться, чувствовать весь его смысловой вес и серьёзное настроение, проецируя каждое слово и предложение на свою жизнь. Отличный Conscious Hip-Hop, с очень атмосферной подачей, который помогает о многом задуматься.”

El Gant – Pageants (feat. Ras Kass)

“”El Gant” and “Ras Kass” team up to communicate their ideas and spread messages of confidence, high self-esteem and creativity above average. Another explosive single of clear Hip-Hop style which shouldn’t miss from your top music choices.”

El Gant shares the slick new video for “Pageants,” his lyrically charged single featuring none other than Ras Kass as well as neck-breaking production from Marco Polo.

Mo Stafford is on directorial duties for the video, which centers on shots of the two emcees spitting their verses while posted up in a low-key apartment. It’s a fitting setting for this type of track, because it’s all about eschewing pageantry and over-the-top BS in favor of artistry and lyrical content.

That feeling is truly palpable in the video. Backed by Marco Polo’s piano-stomping production, El Gant and Ras Kass detail their passion for hip-hop that goes well beyond a need for recognition. It’s an inescapable drive that’s in their blood—or, as El Gant says so eloquently on the hook, “The game came into my life like a bad habit.”

Check out the video, and head over to your preferred streaming platform to support. “Pageants” is set to appear on El Gant’s forthcoming LP, O.S.L.O., which is due out Oct. 7 via El Gant’s own Rule By Secrecy label. You can pre-order the album starting Sept. 16, including vinyl through the emcee’s partnership with Fat Beats.
