Snow tha Product – Waste of Time

EQ – Solo Act (mixtape)

EQ - Solo Act

This compilation was released last year, and at the time was EQ’s best works up to that point in his career.

His expert use of multisyllabic rhymes establishes him as an elite emcee, and his excellent use of rhythm solidifies him as one of the best rappers in the underground.

Download it for free (download below), and you can donate directly to his career on the bandcamp page.

Recorded at Rough Recording Studios the album drips with an edge of professionalism because of the quality of recording, engineering, and mixing.

All Points Beyond – 2OvercomeBecome

APB - 00 - 2overcomebecome_front2OvercomeBecome was released in 2007.  That’s 6 years ago.  This oldie but goodie is a classic album that still sets the standard on underground hip-hop with 14 tracks you’re sure to love.The tracklist is down below and so is the link to get the music.

The music and lyrics never get old which is something I can rarely say about music these days.  It’s ethereal the way All Points Beyond puts his words together.  This is trippy stuff that you could really spend the day listening to to get you in the right zone as it creates an oriental atmosphere by the instruments and the way they’re used.  It’s only appropriate as he incorporates Kung Fu movie samples and lyrics about feeling like a Samurai.

Improv is featured on two tracks, Zank, is featured on one, Timothy Mission is featured on one, and there is one beat by the hip-hop producer Ulliversal (who is from Germany).  Best of all, all five are on the same track called Grit.

  1. A State of Nature
  2. Conceivable Concepts
  3. Wonder Why ft. Improv
  4. I Samurai
  5. Can’t Think Of The Words
  6. On The Surface Of Sensi-Star
  7. Swear On Your Life
  8. Rules For Radicals
  9. Hit The Wall
  10. Strange Trip
  11. Grit ft. Improv, Zank, & Timothy Mission (beat by Ulliversal)
  12. My Conspiracy
  13. Seconds of Silence
  14. Lost

Price: $10.00




Welcome AllPointsBeyond

allpointsbeyondAllPointsBeyond (formerly known as Mad Dragon, or Emdee), is a Colorado based emcee who first made a name with the revolutionary / trancendentalist hip hop crew, Phunny Pharm in 2002. Phunny Pharm quickly became known as a household name for its unabashed non-conformity in regaurds to its approach to hip-hop. Their stage shows were intense riviting performances, often incorporating live graffiti art with a heavy influence of Jackson Pollack, as well as others. PHunny Pharm also made a grand attempt to touch on concepts, ideas and sounds that had not yet been used in hip-hop, all while maintaining an undeniably head nodding pop sensibility. As a member of the group, he performed with numerous favorites in the world of independent hip-hop, including Murs, The Ghosts of Verona, Defari, Zion I, 2Mex, Pep Love, Black Pegasus, Immortal Dominion, LMNO, and many more. By 2005, Phunny Pharm had become an increasingly popular entity as it found widespread success on college radio, and eventually the group released two full length LP’s. In 2007, AllPointsBeyond released his first solo effort, dubbed, 2Overcome,Become, an unapologetically intellectual record ostensibly in homage to his grandfather. Although the album recieved little in the way of promotion, it was widely seen as one of the better independent albums of 2007. Later in 2007, AllPointsBeyond co-founded the hip-hop super group, Magnificent Wingspan, with Doctor Oscify, Dj Deadbeat Dominic and Skimp Killah. AllPointsBeyond is currently in the studio recording his second solo album, entitled, “Poetry is Dead”, slated for release in Fall 2008. Lyrically, AllPointsBeyond has few, if any equals. He is well versed in the nature of technical rhyme and is a notoriously skilled 12 string guitar player. With a voice that is immediately recognizable for its raspy, solidly theatrical, and gravitational effect on his listener, he brings a fractal-like rhythm to his work which is imminently listenable. Most notable, however is the content of his authorship. Weaving personal narratives, conflicts, attitudes, and experiences with a vast literary knowledge with heavy emphasis on existential philosophical thought, AllPointsBeyond creates poetic landscapes that feel nearly anachronistic in their stark descriptions and story telling crispness. AllPointsBeyond brings qualities to his writings that would seem entirely at home among 19th century poetry and prose, yet his presentation is a blisteringly emotional hip-hop format. He is also the single favorite emcee of Skimp Killah, Doctor Oscify, & Sono (Phunny Pharm) to name a few.

#Snow tha Product offers us 22 quality tracks for free on Good Nights and Bad Mornings 2 and is available for download below. You can also use the youtube player below the download link.  She is not just another pretty face.

On this free album she collaborates with some hip-hop moguls such as Tech N9ne and Dizzy Wright.  This album is complete with a nice introduction to the album.  She has a fast delivery and sets the bar high for emcees in general.  It’s good to hear a talented female rapper these days, and she is one of the best out there.

There are a few other features by people I am not familiar with, but really have caught my attention as talented as well.  Check them all out on this album, and keep tuned for #Snow tha Product.
