What we have here is a brotherhood. A friendship that extends past music, but also has an extensive musical history. The Abstract & The Dragon is more-so a compilation of their work over the years with new records sprinkled in. Another cool aspect about the mixtape is that both also add verses to classic records like Busta hops on A Tribe Called Quest’s “God Lives Through.” It’s a great example of what a mixtape represents. Features from Redman, Big Daddy Kane, Missy Elliott and more

The debut album from Step Brothers, "Lord Steppington" is due out 1.21.14 on Rhymesayers Entertainment.
Akala performs his song " Shakespeare" and Bashy performs his song "The World" live for 1XTRA Hip Hop Month.
Sorry if you've heard enough on this from me already but this shit is just too funny to me!
In fact I think the only person who finds this funnier than me right now is Micky Worthless who is gaining followers on Twitter quicker than James Arthur is deleting tweets and making apologies!
Saturday, 16 November 2013
Ahead of his Thieves Banquet Tour Akala drops this insightful freestyle that displays why most consider him one of the elite emcee's in the UK.

Jon The Savage here peoples, first off let me start by saying sorry about the lack of posts, family issues and the showers of shit that fall on us living in the real world has had a negative effect on output, apologies for that!
Secondly, thanks to these showers of shit that lay dormant in the shit clouds that constantly follow me I've managed to get my hate back!! Yay for hate and the motivational drive it brings with it!
What's got me back on my hate shit I hear you ask? Well that would be easier to answer by listing the things that haven't got me hating this week, but hey "Nothing that's worthwhile is ever easy" so let's begin the hard task of prioritizing the list of hate!
First on the hate list is James "X-Factor" Arthur and his latest lofty ambitions of being an emcee!
For those not in the know he's last years winner?
The one with the teeth............................................................................................................
Looks like Sloth from The Goonies........................................................................................
Play's a Guitar...............................................................................................................................
Nah me neither, that's why I decided to add the visuals for the sensible peeps out there that avoids that propagated shit fest!
Proper cunt ain't he!
Anyway being in The X-Factor is usually enough to make me avoid anything you have to offer as only a fame hungry, style over substance, sub-servant, hive mentality having wannabe puppet would take part in such a spectacle of horse shit! However this cunt truly has gone the extra mile and landed himself in vapour-ville with a bad case of hype-nitis by deciding he's not just the best singer/song-writer this Cuntry has to offer but also the best up and coming emcee in the Cuntry as well!
What's wrong with that I hear you ask?
Well watch the "Fire In The Booth" appearance he made for Charlie Sloth over at Radio 1 on the 10th of November and then follow the jump to read more!!

Sorry for the wait on audio, still going through the process of recording and perfecting "InfoWars" as we wouldn't want to put anything out until it's good and ready!
So to tie you over until the first release off the E.P. "InfoWars" which we've already provided you with the lyrics for I've decided to give you a glimpse of what will be the second release off of the E.P. in the form of the lyrics for "What Will It Take"!
Hopefully you will like what I have to say and will eagerly await the audio treats that are heading your way!
Until the next post, Jon the Savage, Your host is ghost!!
Hello peeps, JTS back again! Thought I'd give you a sneak peek into what's in store on the music front! As I shared in my last post, I'm currently working on my debut E.P.! The first track I aim to get out to you is "InfoWars" which is designed to get people thinking about exactly where they get their information from and exactly who the type of people are that supply this information! Now this is simply my own conclusions from my own findings so don't write them off as absurd and equally don't take everything I say as fact, do your own digging and come to your own truth!

Now I'm aware that many of our readers aren't from Blighty so I'll provide a small introduction to the buffoon you see above before I explain to you exactly what it is that he's done to annoy me today!
Read full story to see exactly who he is and what he's done today to make my blood boil!
Thought I'd share this fantastic bit of satire from "TheSecondCityNetwork" with you!
Of course it would be a little more funny if it wasn't so true!
C'mon we all know people like the one's being ridiculed in this video, people who still believe in the illusion and blindly follow a certain Political Party or Leader! The sooner people wake up to the fact it's a simple battle between us and them, the have's and the have not's, the sooner we can start to build a world free of these parasites that seek to control every aspect of our lives whilst they live the life of Kings. It matters not if we're talking about Republicans, Democrats, Conservative or Labour, they all serve the same masters and the same interests!
Guess what? Those interests do not include a better life for you - The People!
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. - Confucius
Brighton Reggae/Hip Hop supremo Cut La Vis teams up with UK Hip Hop Legend Mystro and roots singer Mr Melody for an anthemic Re-Lick of the righteous roots classic, fusing boom-bap hip hop beats with a skanking groove and awesome vocal deliveries.
Mystro's conscious lyrics and trademark silky-smooth flow perfectly compliments Mr Melody's sweetly sung chorus.

Fresh off of murdering "Control", "Versache & "Dreams & Nightmares" Papoose gives us another one over Big Sean's "First Chain"! This time Pap has his sight's firmly set on Big Sean after his recent disrespectful comments he made on Power 105.1 Breakfast Club with DJ Envy, Angela Yee & Charlamagne! When Charlemagne tells Big Sean that Pap had thrown shots at him on his "Control" Response, Big Sean simply replies with "Who?"! Now Papoose didn't take the comment kindly and has decided to get back at him! Whatever your opinions are on "Beef" and "Diss Records", you have to admit that this kind of competitiveness is what the game has been missing! To many followers and not enough leaders these days, so with that said salute to Papoose for standing up as a true NY General should! Look out for the new Papoose mixtape "Blackballed" which will be dropping soon!

MMG's Meek Mill has at long last delivered a response worthy of being called a response to fellow Philly Native Cassidy with a clear mention that Kendrick Lamar is next! (Think the song title kinda gives that one away) Over a selection of classic beats of past beefs Meek Mill channels his inner 2Pac by starting the track with "Hit Em Up" where Meek rhymes
"First off, fucked your bitch nigga get a blood test/You a upset nigga , where the love at?/When we talking 'bout Philly know I fucking run that!"
Following that mill's continues the verbal assault over B.I.G.'s "Who Shot Ya", Nas's "Ether" & finishing with 50's "Wanksta" where Meek finishes with a threat to bully Cassidy via Instagram
"Easy nigga, I talk greasy niggaa/ I'mma stunt on Instagram just to tease you, nigga."
Cage drops another new track in the form of an alternative version of "This Place"! Got to admit, quite liking this new material from Cage which see's him returning to his roots whilst keeping things fresh and interesting! Now the less said about that brief Emo Rocker period the better as Cage is slowly starting to sound back to his best.
The original version of "This Place" will be featured on the new Cage album "Kill The Architect" which will be available to purchase on 22/10/2013!!
Anyone that has been following the transformation of the blog in recent weeks will remember that I promised to bring you contributions from Jon The Savage! Well the day has arrived that will see the first of those contributions in the form of an introduction to the man himself!
R.A. The Rugged Man follows through with his promise last week of dropping a new video off Legends Never Die! The visual in question is "The Dangerous 3" which is one of the biggest tracks from a big album! The track is of course produced by Mr. Green and features Brother Ali & Masta Ace, who all appear in the video alongside R.A. himself. This is the 4th visual to be released from the album "Legends Never Die" which you could and should cop from the usual outlets as it's a classic!

Nino Bless has released a freebie for the fans today which can be best summed up as his response to the whole Kendrick Lamar situation! Never one to disappoint Nino delivers 7mins of fury over a Scottzilla beat that proves whilst Kendrick was trying to get everyone to raise the bar and bring back lyricism, there are artists out there that have continually kept the bar raised, Nino Bless being one of those artists! Be sure to check out Nino's new album "R.O.A.M. 2" this when it's released this Fall! For a listen to the first leak off that project "Faded Portrait" hit the below link for full story!!!

South Bronx heavyweight Fat Joe returns with the third instalment of his "The Darkside" Mixtape series which boasts some heavy production from DJ Premier on the Action Bronson featured "Your Honour" & Diamond D who oversees the Nick Shades featured "Cypher"! Other production on the tape comes from long time collaborators Cool and Dre, Streetrunner, ILLa, Young Hype & 9th Wonder who provides one of the tapes stand out moments "9th Wonder" With what is now the 20th anniversary of his debut album "Represent" Fat Joe although facing many career up's & down's doesn't seem like going anywhere soon! All in all Joey Crack has managed to deliver a solid tape that carries a satisfying 90's feel to it which more than makes up for the slightly disappointing "The Darkside 2"
