Inbox Goodies: The Leftovers Edition

by Travis on April 8, 2009

I guess you could call this week the leftovers week. You know, when your mom used to clean the fridge and make some dish that had corn, chicken, green beans, beets, mystery meat and all kinds of other weird things? I got waaaay behind on posting stuff that has been sent to me. As you should know, I’m not always big on posting up stuff that gets sent to me, only because more often than not, 2000 other blogs are posting the same thing. Which is why I’m fairly picky about what I post. I like helping cats spread the word, especially if it’s something I think someone might enjoy. Therefore, tonight and probably tomorrow will be dedicated to clearing out the mailbox and catch up on some stuff. So beer with me. I have a nice little series coming up next week that I think should be fun for the readers.

Bloggers Choice

It happens every year. There is one album that I slept on, didn’t give enough spins to until it was too late, or just straight up didn’t hear that I hear the next year and realize it was good enough to be in my year end list. That album this year is Problemaddicts “The Darkside of Oz”. They flip Pink Floyd samples and incorporate that urban myth of “The Darkside of the Moon” and “The Wizard of Oz” (and anyone that has smoked an ounce of weed in their life knows that it’s real). It’s a great album, that really caught on with me after the new year started.

Well, my man Matt Diamond from Coalmine Records sent me a couple of their new tracks from the up coming album. And what do you know, they got Justus Leaguer, Khrysis on the boards wit’ the heat! - Trav

Kero One – When The Sunshine Comes

Artist and Plug Label head Kero One has been keeping himself busy lately and lucky for us, we get to reap all the benefits. Today, we get two healthy helpings from Kero: His sophomore effort Early Believers is out today and we also get to peep his second music video, this time for the follow-up single “When The Sunshine Comes” featuring British singer Ben Westbeech. Strolling along a beautiful beach in sunny California, Kero illustrates the story of two young souls, John and Jane. John is in med school and falls head over heels for Jane, a sweet, carefree party girl. Soon the two lovebirds tie the knot but the pressures of the impending marriage get the best of young John he begins to revert his days of partying. When Jane discovers what he’s been up to, the wedding bells stop ringing. Months later we see Jane out with friends again, but one night she has one drink too many. In a dreary hospital bed Jane opens her eyes, lucky to be alive, and who is the young doctor she sees standing over her smiling…? Creatively directed by Byron Chan, the video gives us a short but sweet love story, just in time for spring.

Ill Bill – My Uncle

Ill Bill is still working hard in 2009 after completing his sophomore album The Hour of Reprisal and a forty-date tour last year. Representing his group La Coka Nostra, which is comprised of Slain and former House of Pain members Everlast, Danny Boy, and DJ Lethal, Ill Bill performs his most personal song, “My Uncle,” live on Fearless Music TV. Check out the video for the performance with DJ Eclipse backing Bill up.

Bill explains the background of the song: “When I was a kid, I looked up to Howie. My parents split when I was little and my mom was at work all the time. My grandmother raised me and my uncle was always around. Now that I’m older, I know that he was a heroin addict with all kinds of severe issues but as a kid, I had no idea what heroin addiction was. Naming the label after him was a joke at first. It wasn’t until much later that it took on a deeper meaning. It was my way of attaching something positive to a person who had a huge, positive impact on me” states the MC. Bill continues “He had the potential for greatness but ended up going down the wrong path. Me including him in my music is my way of giving back.”

Rapper Torae & Super-Producer Marco Polo have joined forces to release the New York rap album that fans of raw, hardcore Hip-Hop have been waiting for.

When it comes to beats and rhymes, Canadian producer Marco Polo and Brooklyn MC Torae don’t play, just check the résumé. On his 2007 critically acclaimed album Port Authority, Polo recruited a who’s who of MC’s like Kool G Rap and Kardinal Offishall to ride over his hard-hitting instrumentals. Torae, on the other hand, has certified his rep as one of the game’s illest lyricists in a similar fashion, with remarkable wordplay on his highly touted 2008 street album Daily Conversation. So, in the spirit of great hip-hop duos, the producer and the MC signed with Duck Down Records to release their collaborative album “Double Barrel,” on June 2nd.

He’s bringing the hardest production that he can bring, I’m bringing the hardest rhymes I can bring; together its like a double barrel blast,” says Torae of the album’s persistent theme. The two first hooked up when Marco tapped the MC to guest on his Mick Boogie-helmed mixtape, The New Port Authority, in 2007. In turn, Marco went on to produce “Casualty” on Tor’s Daily Conversation. “I think we just had a connection in the studio,” says Polo, “We wanted to make an album that we wanted to hear with banging beats and aggressive rhymes.”

Sonically Double Barrel pays homage to New York’s mid-‘90’s rap scene, when artists like Gang Starr and Wu-Tang Clan reigned supreme. The album’s lead track “Party Crashers” is a definite standout, harkening back to that era with its chest thumping percussion and rock solid rhymes. So rather then try to fit in with Hip-Hop’s pop set, Torae & Marco chose the unconventional route. “I think the sound of the album is not the most popular or trendy, but we’re going to crash the party,” says Tor, “ We’re coming in with this sound and we’re coming in doing what we want to do.

Songs like the dramatic “But Wait” and the free associative “Word Play” display Tor’s forward-thinking conceptual abilities, while the rock-infused “Danger” stands as one of Marco’s finest productions to date. Overall the album is chock-full of the street-influenced rap that fans have come to expect from the two Hip-Hop upstarts.

Torae sums up the collaboration perfectly when he spits, “He makes violent beats, I’m from the violent streets/That Double Barrel sound, that’s where violence meets.”

Torae & Marco Polo will also be hitting off the vinyl heads with both a 12″ and LP of the album.

The 12″ line up is:
