As usual, The Fraternity does not disappoint. The group’s co-founder, Sleep, does anything but what his moniker may suggest. Also one half of Cincinnati hip hop duo 2 Man Cypher along with Cocaine Chris, Sleep once again successfully steps out on his own. For a minute during the visuals shot by Miles Joyner I was nostalgically reminded of Mobb Deep’s Havoc and Prodigy spitting rhymes on dimly lit street corners. Dark visuals mixed with a Jake Case produced boom bap throwback is just enough fuel for the fire to prove that Sleep is “Unmatched”.
As we await the release of the highly anticipated album, Fredro Starr and Sticky Fingaz of Onyx have dropped the new track “We Don’t Fuckin Care”.

Backed by Twins Productions, Rap-P’s latest banger off the new album Dying To Live features guest bars from the iconic NYC artist Jaz-O. Jaz-O, of “Hawaiian Sophie” fame, may be best remembers as the guy that gave a young Jay Z a shot in the late 80′s/early 90′s.
Produced by Alex Minor, Mega Ran’s new track “Losses” is a heartfelt lifeline to anyone who’s lost anything or anyone to the high-stakes game of the streets. Ran recruits heavyweight Joell Ortiz of Slaughterhouse and West Coast indie rap hero MURS, and tops it off with a soulful chorus by Arizona songstress Tina Estes, making “Losses” a vast departure from the video-game tinged tracks the Philly artist been known for as of late. “Losses” is the lead off for Mega Ran’s upcoming EP Wouldn’t Miss It For The World. Be on the lookout for Wouldn’t Miss It For The World coming this spring as a free download.
Out of NJ/NYC, Hip Hop duo Joe & Box are a pair of goofy best friends who lead the “Swine” movement and live by the phrase “Fuck Being Ordinary”. Taking pride in technical lyrical skill and song making ability, Joe & Box just want to give the world something real in the end. The shoot for “Boogieman and Weasel” was actually supposed to be for another video, but a blizzard halted any previous production plans. Boogieman (Box) and Weasel (Joe) are alter-egos, playfully passing rhymes back and forth in a display of skill and in order to bring listeners into the fun-filled world of “Boogieman and Weasel”, which is also available for download below.
With 12 mixtapes under his belt, Feezy Da Main Man plans on proving to the world that you can achieve what you desire in life by persevering and staying productive. From the 4th installmentof the Put In Work Mixtape series, Feezy Fee once again teams up with Kizzy Kizz for “Automatic”.
Killa Kyleon drops off a new track right before the month can end to celebrate “Black History Month” with production handled by Trill Gates (@trillgatesbeats) . Kyleon has been really impressive lately so we can’t wait to hear his upcoming Trill project.
With February, and Black History Month, wrapping up, the southern wordsmith, Killa Kyleon, makes his return to the game today with a fitting new track for our listening enjoyment.

The wordsmith gives us some deep wordplay, providing a message, some knowledge, and how things have changed over the year. Killa once again drops off a barrage of his talents, letting loose of some potent, hard hitting bars on the beat, doing so effortlessly, showing off his depth and his abilities flawlessly. Between the intense verses are some samples from powerful speeches that provide a tough appeal that will make you want to do something! Check out the track after the jump and speak on it down below.
