This is some serious realness. In the hipster movement we got Freddie Gibbs refusing yet reconizing the mainstream. His lyrics are straigt gansta. He protrays the grimmy lifestyle with illcit rhymes and flow. His rhymes remind me of Mobb Deeps dominating genre,murda rap. This guy deserves a second posting. Here’s to my cookers, players and haters.
If you haven’t heard of recent Brainfeeder signee Lorn, you’ve been missing out. His style is mad creepy almost. Real deep, real dark. Some of the synths in these tracks just cut soooo hard you feel like it’s sawing you in half. Not too much is known about the man, but the legend is clearly growing. He is dropping his new album “Nothing Else”, which “Tomorrow” will be on June 8th. I’m sure we’ll all get to sneak peak a little more of that soon. Meanwhile, check the bumps on this Biggie remix. Definitely one of the sickest remixes I’ve heard in a minute. Enjoy.

It’s you favorite gansta rappers. Mobb Deep. I have a new found respect for this duo ever since I’ve read Prodigies biographies. To sum up one of the best bios I’ve ever read basically everything they rap about they live. These guys are the original dons of murda rap. Ever since their first album I’ve had a huge crush on them.
I was lucky enough to meet Mobb Deep backstage when they on the “Blood Money” tour.
Prodigy talks his mind about serious matter. If you’ve ever wondered how a rapper from the golden era survived. He’s comes from the grimy and represents his niche market very well. The few subjects he touches on are very insightful to his character and personality. He talks about time inside jail and how he reflected on his mistakes. He’s also talks about leaving 50 cents label. It’s a genuine look into one of the originators of hip-hop. They are a testament to not selling out and staying true to their art form. They know they make good music, what’s the point in evolving and appealing to the mainstream.
Either way the episodes have got me really excited for Mobb Deep’s new projects. 2012 they are free agents, last time they were free agents we saw some of their best music. The 3 episodes I’ve watched are showing me the side of Mobb Deep that I always like. They are not big budget and there is no gimmicks. It’s just about making good music. Plus there’s so good footage of them live. Check out the 2 other videos after the jump.
