Album: CheddaSK – Forever Changed

 

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.

Video: Chox-Mak ft. DJ YRS Jerzy – Reality Bites (dir. by Ray Flaco)

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.

Album: Dirt Nasty + Andre Legacy + Beardo – The White Boys

 

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.

Album: Onyx – WAKEDAFUCUP (prod. by Snowgoons)

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 SpartaSnowgoons also produced the Goondox project, joining forces with PMD & Sean Strange.  #WAKEDAFUCUPs 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.
