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!
