Fashawn - Higher Learning (Mediafire)

I remember first hearing this kid off the Torae hosted 'Veterans Day' Mixtape along with other newcomers Skyzoo, Torae and Termanology. The track, City Is Mine was a raw burst of energy that hit me like nothing I'd heard in a long minute. I then noticed him gaining some more exposure through Hip-Hop clothing line ORISUE, having a shirt-mixtape dropped using the tagline 'One Shot, One Kill'. Since then he has collabed with Dilated Peoples member Evidence on numerous occasions along with industry production giant The Alchemist and even shot two videos. Not to mention being a part of the Gold Chain Music collective led by Fresno rap vet, Planet Asia. Simply put: Watch out for this dude.

Peep the vids.

Royce Da 5'9 of 2009: The Butcher

It's been nearly four long years since Nickel-Nine has dropped his last studio album 'Independent's Day'. In those four years Royce had unresolved beef with long time friend and associates Eminem, D12 and the late Proof. Although he managed to resolve previous desputes with Proof it wasn't long until he was gunned down at a local night club in Detroit and shortly after, 5'9 was locked up for a 12 month period after being arrested for a DUI. Since his release in 2007 he put out a mixtape series entitled The Bar Exam 1 & 2 that were both critically acclaimed receiving much recognition from the Hip-Hop community. It re-instilled faith in both Detroit and Royce Da 5'9 fans. The Bar Exam 2 was eventually released as a retail street album in stores.

Now Royce is back again with two new singles for the new year. Both conceptual tracks have shot music videos and been released. The first, 'Shake This' produced by close associate and veteran producer, DJ Premier has already circulated a lot of internet play via MySpace and Youtube. It can be viewed below.



His more recent and second single 'Part Of Me' depicts a man deprived of his manhood after an all night sex romp. The M. Night-twist also received recognition for it's creativity and vivid story telling. The video is also shown below.



Finally, possibly the most popular news circulating around Royce is the likely collaboration of 5'9 along with Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden and Crooked I. Rumors began floating around after a joint from Joe Budden's 'Halfway House' mixtape premiered. The song 'Slaughterhouse' featuring Buddens himself, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, Nino Bless and Royce is what sparked the concept of the group Slaughterhouse minus emcee Nino Bless. It is my belief that Royce more or less SLAUGHTERED the Halfway House with a single verse. Keep it D, 5'9!

Valley Metro Light Rail - PHX, AZ
"NOW OPEN!"





I'm sure everybody already knows since it was completely free up until the last day of December but the Valley Metro Light Rail system is finally open! The route so far stretches from the edge of Mesa all the way to 19th Avenue & Montebello, similar to the Red Line Bus Route. I got a chance to take a ride along the entire route on it's last free day of operating and it was pretty amazing. The trip lasted about an hour and a half or close to two hours when going directly from 19th and Montebello to it's last departure on Sycamore and Main Street. According to schedule the trip generally lasts about 70 minutes. On our way back, we decided to get off and walk around Mil Avenue for a bit and explore. After we were satisfied, it was time for our trip back towards 19th. The ride overall was fairly cramped (almost entirely because it was still free), I however managed to remain seated virtually the entire way. Along the entire 20-mile route, there are approximately 28 stations that you can board and depart from. Fare is the same as riding the local Bus Routes, which came as a surprising shock to me. For those that don't know the fares you can check out all fares, schedules and other information at valleymetro.org

Overall, I was impressed with the ride. Hopefully, safety remains an issue and they continue to expand and maintain our new addition the city.

EPMD - We Mean Business (Review + Re-Up)

Re-Up link above

We Mean Business, the first group album from Erick & Parrish in nearly 10 years displays a huge amount of EPMD's earliest lyrical and instrumental potency throughout the record. I'd like to first note that I would list this in the top 10 albums of 2008.

Erick and Parrish are back and aren't showing any signs of aging weakness. Not only are they on top of lines and delivery but the album is laced with a fairly impressive featured roster that always helps to add some interesting interactive play between artists. Some of the best tracks include featured acts such as KRS-One, Redman and Keith Murray. On the track "Yo!" featuring the Funk Doc himself, Erick & Parrish demolish verses competitively. However, it's not only the lyrically inventiveness along with a mixture of guest appearances that make this release impressive, songs such as "Bac Stabbers" that show just how EPMD managed to overcome past differences and not fall victim to double-crossers turning the two against each other. Also, they managed to create such singles that rhythmically insure a mellow style and good vibe like "Listen Up" featuring former BLACKstreet member, Teddy Riley.

The video can be seen here.
