OH BOY! This could be one of the best battles this year. After dealing with some new infrastructure moves, URL is back to present this freestyle battle which features two St. Louis respected emcees. Hitman Holla and Ayeverb were once friends but differences came between them and now the one battle they weren't seeking has become the biggest battle of their lives. I need to watch this a few more times to come to some kind of judgment but right now I have AyeVerb winning 2 rounds to 1. Jesus Christo.
Whenever there is a Flex rant I sit down, press play, listen and laugh. Get ready for some serious shit talking right here. Check out two more videos below. I lost it when he started talking about swiping his 12 marbles on the concrete.

I stopped giving money to beggars a long time ago. If someone is begging and I have food then I give them that. Other than that I do not give them money because sometimes you end up getting scammed, being led astray, or the beggars use that money for something harmful. Well here's an example of the scamming business. I can't believe she went through all that just to beg for some money. The jig is up!
Jasiri X tells the heartbreaking story of Trayvon Martin, a unarmed 17 yr old boy, who was shot and killed by Neighborhood Block Captain George Zimmerman on February 26, 2012. George Zimmerman has to this date never been arrested or charged for the Murder of Trayvon.
"Trayvon" was directed by Paradise Gray and co directed and engineered by Mirage
911, what's your emergency
A black man's walking through my hood purposely
The message is only white lives are protected
What does Teyana Taylor do?!! That is the question that everyone and their mother keeps asking every time you heard her name come up in the media. Other than the naked pics and countless rumors of being attached to a NBA baller or rapper, she sings and raps. I think she focuses more on the singing which fits her quite well. Here's the mixtape that features Jadakiss, Fab, Wale, and more. The best thing about listening to her is that you don't know what to expect. I had nothing to base her music off of and what we have here is a solid mixtape. Check it out.
Make Your Move Ft. Wale
DUI Ft. Fabolous & Jadakiss

This song speaks to an experience we've all had at one time or another: when for whatever reason, you turn on the radio and a fragment of a song just grabs you, everything in the world seems to stop, and you sit mesmerized and uplifted by the music. That moment of "being touched" from the radio is a testament to the power of song, and it's at that magical moment when an artist - even someone we know nothing about - truly connects with their equally unknown listener. Seriously I've never been connected to a song like this in a long time. When you watch the video you understand the predicament of being somewhere, hearing a song, and then just rocking out and not knowing anything about the song, artist, or content. I appreciate this. Esperanza, my future wife, has a new album in stores tomorrow. Amazing.
A wonderful husband asks his darling wife how long it takes her to go 80 miles if she is going 80 mph? Get ready to hear some crazy, stupid ass answer. Gotta love the commentary of the husband.

Seriously, this dude needs another project asap. Hearing the singles and other features I can tell he's going to be great for the R&B movement. Just take this track. At first I thought it was going to be lackluster but it comes together very quickly.
Timbaland is back with what might be the first single for his next album. For some reason I always think Timbaland is not going to show and prove but he proves me wrong. Tough beat.
Break Ya Back
Don't sleep on Logic. DMV rapper still riding his wave and trying to do more than just get a buzz. Check it out. The girl that I love the one I call my honey, now I wonder if she love me for me or my fucking money.
Nas raps over a beat that Heavy D gave to producer Salaam Remi. While he handed it over he said it was meant for Nas. Check it out. Nas just puts out like 2 official songs per year now and he's still one of the greatest.
Blood of our slaves still rush through our veins. That's the type of substance you are going to find when you listen to Devine Carama. He's from Lexington, Kentucky and a conscious rapper. As you can see already, I've posted his video for his song "The Populist Pulpit" that remains one of my favorites off the album. Sit down, listen, take some time away from what you regularly listen to and enjoy. Check out some songs and download the album.
Plain Gold Ring
Killing Fields featuring Sheisty Khrist
The Populist Pulpit
Conscious rap. When you press play on this you will be introduced to a dope ass beat and then later on to some great lyricism showcased by Devine Camera. Check this out. Many of the same grievances he speaks on are similar to some of current ones. I'd rather be a nerd that's a genius than cool and stupid.
Here's an awesome cover of Katy Perry's "Firework" by Mac Soto. He gives the song more of an indie-pop, minimalist flavor but with crisp, soulful vocals. It will be released next Tuesday (3/13) but we are open to some early features/ premier of the song. Let me know your thoughts and let's definitely work something out.
The people of the Crichton area of Mobile, Alabama, sing a traditional Irish brogue to commemorate the appearance of a leprechaun and celebrate the spirit of St. Patrick. Freaking genius! Check out the original video below.
