Off The Radar With Sucio Smash: Feat. Raekwon, DJ Premier & KRS-One

I'm back in effect and I came through with a very important announcement, we need to kill the term “Old School”. Why not CLASSIC, PERFECT  or even MASTER PIECE? Only in Black culture do we see acts being disrespected or looked down at because they are “old.” You don’t see many kids walking around with Public Enemy or EPMD shirts but you see kids walking around with Iron Maiden and AC/DC tees. Imagine Taylor Swift saying “f*ck Dolly Parton!” You can't can you? We don’t need “Old School at Noon” we need “Classics at Noon”. I encourage all of you (artists included) to dead that term. Go ahead try it, it might benefit all of you 10 yrs from now.

Now lets hit you with some Classic sh*t! —@SucioSmash

 

1. DJ Premier Feat. KRS-One & Grand Puba

“5%”

It's all about strong statements today so lets just get this out of the way: Dr. Dre is NOT the greatest producer in hip-hop. Never was, DEFINITELY never will be (we can argue all that in the comments, if you like). He’s one of the greats though, so please spare my life when I go to L.A. DJ Premier on the other hand is too humble to say he’s the greatest. I will say this though, he has a better argument on this case. Exibit A: Group Home  “Livin Proof.” And exhibit Z: “5%”. Here, Preem does what he does best, hard-hitting hip-hop that makes the MCs sound better than they have in recent memory. Kris breaks down the science on the Five Percent Nation with the help of classic Five Percenter Grand Puba. Pay attention, do the knowledge and support quality. Cop DJ Premier’s Year Round Records… Get Used To Us compilation album out now!

 

2. Dres (Of Black Sheep) Feat. Psycho Les

"Important Fact"

More Classics for y'all, Dres of Black Sheep and Psycho Les of the Beatnuts team up on this cut off Dres' new album “Of The Black Pool Of Genius.” I'm still trying to figure out what Les flipped for this track but one thing is clear, this joint bangs! Props to Dres for picking this beat and not making a song about getting money and acting dumb instead he made a song about being smart with your money, everything is clear by the hook: “After you get the dough/crips before whips/whips before jewels/rock jewels with clips/dough goes with fam/fam before friends/friends before fools/stick to the plan”. Not all rappers are dumb, who knew ah? Les always finds a way to kill me with lines like “I get money like Donald Trump/put your bottles up I don’t give a f*ck wave a McDonalds cup” and “I’ma hit ‘chu with a big drum beater/’cause Im a Beat Nut and you just a nut beater.” You are a Beatnut indeed brother.

 

3. Raekwon

“Butter Knifes”

At some point in the past few years Raekwon realized what his fans want and need from him and he hasn’t strayed too far away from the original recipe that allowed him to be a part of a few classic albums. “Butter Knifes” sounds like a track that could’ve been a part of the first Wu run of the '90s complete with Kung-Fu movie samples and all. This joint is off Rae’s upcoming album Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang. Let's hope the album follows the same formula. Hey Rae, do you still have them black Mutombos?

 

4. Celph Titled & Buckwild Feat. Treach (Of Naughty By Nature)

“Out To Lunch”

I like a Celph Titled track, who knew? And it's not just because he’s rocking over a '90s Buckwild beat, or the fact he has who in my opinion holds the title for the most underrated MC in hip-hop (Treach) or because Mista Sinista (X-Ecutioners) is on the cuts. No, Celph Titled got himself a dope track, scratch that, he got himself a dope album (“Nineteen Ninety Now”). “Out To Lunch” almost got the skip because of the “reggae inspired” hook (remember when they were running around in hip-hop at one point?) but as soon as Celph started rhyming I was sold. Lines like “cause when I lash out I rip eye lashes out” are good in my book. And this is not even the best cut on the album.

 

5. Doo Wop & Pete Rock

“Rhythmatic Explosion”

 


Apparently Pete Rock will be producing five albums next year and it looks like one of them will be a collaboration with mixtape legend Doo Wop. The Bounce Master and the Chocolate Boy Wonder connect to bring us “Rhythmatic Explosion”. The DJ/MC rocks two quick verses over a vintage-sounding Pete Rock beat that will make your speakers beg for you to lower the bass. “You a nerf this is real balling Gilbert Arenas zero on shirt (why?)/that’s ‘cause I am better than first.”

Blueface Freestyles On Beat Thanks To A Ukulele

Blueface's rising career has been shaded with doubt from the naysayers about his subject content and cadence, but, in the interest of showing versatility, the 21-year-old gave an acoustic set on Twitter.

Joined only by a man holding a ukulele, the "Respect My Cryp’n" rapper sat ontop a silver car delivering some bars. The short video captioned "Famous Cyrp" takes inspiration from the 886011 Records DK affiliate's debut album barring the same name.

Unlike the bulk of the Los Angeles rapper's previous work, this is the first time fans have heard the budding emcee on beat. The new lyricist is usually seconds behind, delivering an off-beat flow, but he has managed to get cosigns from rappers like Drake, Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert and surprisingly, Ice Cube.

"They're not ready for it," Blueface said in an interview with Power106 at Rolling Loud. He also shared his excitement over his new found fame. "[I'm on] top of the world."  The former football player has created a cult following. With the up-and-coming rapper's start similar to Tekashi 6ix9ine there have been many comparisons between the red and blue rappers and their lasting impressions on hip-hop.

Viral Stars Daddy Long Neck And Wide Neck Release Single Accurately Titled "Neckst Up"

These days, it pays to have a viral moment. Charles Dion McDowell, known as wide neck after several of his mugshots (and neck jokes) went viral, has teamed up with another unique fellow to make some kind of music together.

On Sunday (Dec. 16), Wide Neck along with Daddy Long Neck, a social media personality with more 1.4 million followers on Instagram, released a music video for the comedy rap song "Neckst Up."

In a nervous soft relaxed tone, McDowell raps, "Shawty lick me up call me up neeeckst Shawty wanna f**k call me up neeeckst / Shawty suck me up call me up neeeckst / Shawty make it clap call me up neckst."

In the video, Long Neck and Wide Neck stroll through the mall wearing t-shirts that read "All Necks Matter," while taking pictures with fans and having an attractive lady entertain them while sitting down on the bench. The leading lady in the video even goes as far as licking the two internet stars with her long tongue.

Since the release of the video, "Neckst Up" has reached over a million views on YouTube. After McDowell went viral, he connected with Daddy Long Neck, whom he shares a similar abnormal body condition.

Bad Bunny Addresses Domestic Violence In New "Solo De Mi" Video

Bad Bunny is finishing 2018 as one of the biggest breakout stars in Latin music, and he's using his platform to stand up against an important topic. He's bringing awareness to domestic violence in his new music video for "Solo De Mi."

"Solo De Mi," which translates to "Just of Me" in English, was released as a single on Friday (Dec. 14). The video that premiered on YouTube a day later, has since racked up 5.1 million views and is currently trending on the channel at No. 10. The visual piece evokes emotions as most of the reel depicts a young woman nervously singing in front of a microphone with a battered face.

Towards the end of the video, the tempo switches and the broken woman becomes stronger as the camera pans to Bad Bunny and his entourage partying the night away while the Puerto Rican rapper spits bars in Spanish.

The Latin trap artist shared a clip of the video on Instagram with this caption:

"I'm not sure if cockfighting is abuse, but gender violence against women and the absurd amount of women who are murdered a month IS. When are we going to prioritize what really matters ??! We always want to blame everyone but the one at fault. IT'S TIME TO TAKE ACTION NOW! I know there will be many opinions, but I just tell them that something starts, and everyone does their part as they think they can. WE DO NOT WANT ONE MORE DEATH! Respect the woman, respect the man, respect the neighbor, respect life! LESS VIOLENCE, MORE PERISH! (AND IF SHE WANTS IT, IF IT DOES NOT LET HER SAVE ONLY AND DO NOT KILL IT) 🖤 [LINK IN MY BIO]"

Although the trap-influenced record has yet to debut on the charts, the 24-year-old artist continues to ride high off the success of his current singles, "MIA" and "I Like It," which are currently sitting at No. 2 and No. 42 on the Hot Latin Songs and Hot 100, respectively.

no estoy seguro si las peleas de gallo son maltrato, pero la violencia de género en contra de la mujer y la cantidad absurda de mujeres que son asesinadas al mes SÍ LO ES. ¿Cuando vamos a darle prioridad a lo que realmente importa??! Siempre queremos culpar a todos menos al que tiene la culpa. ES HORA DE TOMAR ACCIÓN YA! Sé que habrán muchas opiniones, pero yo solo les digo que por algo se empieza, y cada cual hace su parte como cree que pueda. NO QUEREMOS NI UNA MUERTE MAS! Respeta la mujer, respeta al hombre, respeta al prójimo, respeta la vida! MENOS VIOLENCIA, MAS PERREO! (Y SI ELLA LO QUIERE, SI NO DÉJALA QUE PERREE SOLA Y NO LA JODAS)🖤 [LINK EN MI BIO]
