Reflective of the past year and a half in the life of East Coast artist CheddaSK, Forever Changed reveals both pain and glory. The project embodies the highest of highs, to the lowest of lows, peaking with a near death experience while abroad in South America. As always, time heals all and CheddaSK brings the release of this full LP 18 months since tradegy struck. The single “No Enemies” comes complete with a high quality visual which can be viewed below.
Up and coming Columbus, OH rapper J Doze released his first visual off the recently dropped project “21″. Check it out and be on the look out for more from this talented lyricist.
New Mexico’s 10 mp links up with Chicago artist Jody Duff on the Uncle Dave produced “100 Kills”. While “100 Kills” will not be included on any upcoming projects, be on the look out for new music from 10 MP on NHWWW’s upcoming World Wide mixtape.
With a perfect combination talent and hard work, Chox-Mak and DJ YRS Jerzy are rapidly building a name for themselves. As seen on NHWWW and countless other sites around the hip hop blogosphere, there are plenty of artists out there trying to break into the music industry everyday. Chox-Mak and DJ YRS Jerzy know that they have to work harder than everyone, consistently releasing quality projects to the masses. They released the single “Reality Bites” a couple of months ago and now are back to deliver the visual, shot by Ray Flaco, an up and coming videographer from the Jacksonville, North Carolina.
Another side project from the former clean cut MTV VJ Simon Rex, Dirt Nasty is back in the lab with frequent collaborators Beardo and Andre Legacy. If there is actual recording equipment in the same room the meth is being cooked I would not be surprised. Tired of the direction that the hip hop scene is leaning, The White Boys have dropped what they call a “fuckin’ 90′s gangster rap album. Growing up during the generation that MTV actually played music videos, I knew who Simon Rex was and was immediately drawn to his Dirt Nasty persona when I first caught a video back in the Myspace days. A fan of a lot of work from this trio, traditional hip hop with conscious lyrics is not what a new listener will find on this album. For a good time and perhaps the soundtrack to your Saturday night, if you are down with that crazy shit, download The White Boys over on iTunes.
Produced by Diplomatic himself with co-production from Shame, fellow Baltimore artist Zan Acid joins Diplomatic on a dope southern track. Sampling Project Pat’s verse on Three 6 Mafia’s “Poppin’ My Collar”, Diplomatic, Shame and Zan Acid throw shit back to a time with things were a little more “poppin’”.
Legendary hardcore rap crew Onyx are back together with the brand new album #WAKEDAFUCUP. Produced entirely by German crew Snowgoons, the project seems to feature a throwback East Coast sound to match the record’s reminiscent name – Onyx’s 1993 debut LP was dubbed Bacdafucup, for those who needed the history lesson. Recently working with M.O.P. on the album Sparta, Snowgoons also produced the Goondox project, joining forces with PMD & Sean Strange. #WAKEDAFUCUP‘s guest list grabs appearances from Sean Price, Cormega, Dope D.O.D., Papoose, A$ap Ferg and more. Stream the release here on NHWWW and cop the full project on iTunes.
