Tsu Surf, who has won numerous battles in the URL, teams up with fellow Jersey native Joe Budden for his track “Loaded Gun”. This will be off Tsu Surf’s mixtape, which he is dropping tomorrow. The song was produced by Mike Zombie, who recently produced Drake’s “Started From The Bottom.”
To say Joe Budden has a short fuse would be a compliment. He has no fuse. He just goes from 0-100 in one second. That’s what happened in this interview when Eleven8 from Baller Alert asked good ol’ Joey about the recent complaints from fans that Welcome to Our House is too commercial, but enjoyed the mixtape. He turned it into some metaphor about having two toilets at home and not giving two shits. He also told fans to make a “collage” of the songs they like from the mixtape and album in order to create their own album. I guess it was only a matter of time before we got this type of reaction from Joe Budden, because I feel like the group is asked this same question day in and day out. That could get kind of annoying. Interview after the jump.
“If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be here,” raps Joey Crack about his mentor, who was found dead last week after an apparent suicide. “When you get to heaven, tell Pun we miss him.”
Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, and Royce da 5’9” also recall fond memories of the fallen soldiers in their lives. (Rap-Up.com)
Kepstar is an aspiring artist from New York. Already a veteran in the mixtape game, Kepstar recently dropped his latest piece of work, Shades of Grey. According to Kepstar himself, this is his best work to date and his music definitely backs up that statement. With great production, beats, lyrics and features, it really is a well rounded album. Two very special features include one from the legendary Joe Budden and the hot spittin rapper, Termanology. There is also a phenomenal track by the name of Goodbye Yesterday, where Kepstar talks about his struggles over a nicely sampled version of the Dave Matthews’ track, Crash Into Me. This artist has a ton of talent and is sure to be gracing the cover of XXL soon enough. Keep reading for the interview and some music. If you would like to listen to Keptars mixtape, no need to click on any links, full mixtape after the jump. Enjoy!
Joe Budden previewed the full version of his song Put It Down featuring Lil Wayne, Twista and Tank yesterday on Skype. This song is gonna be absolutely massive. Joe Budden is one of the dopest MC’s in the game today. I really think he deserves to be mentioned with the Eminem’s, Wayne’s and Fifties of this world. He is really underrated, mainly due to his borderline insanity, but he’s clearly been takin some meds or somethin and has toned down his usually very blunt and outspoken comments. He’s just bein him, but it just sometimes don’t fly with, well the “people upstairs”.
It’s too bad Budden kinda fell off the grid after his first album years ago and has kind of been wallowing in the underground since, but with the Slaughterhouse album coming out and a feature with Wayne and the underrated Twista as well…this should help put him up there with the other guys. Go get em Joey!! Also, gotta love Joe smokin a Newport midway through the song. Now…that’s a boss. Video/song after the jump. It also feels cool to be able to do a post with Budden and Wayne…bout fuckin time they put semantics aside and did a goddamn track together.
You gotta check out this dope artist from Queens, New York. He goes by the name Kepstar and he is one of the freshest talents in the music industry today. He’s still grindin hard in the underground world, but is slowly starting to turn heads further up the ladder. Joe Budden has already recognized Kepstar’s talents and is featured on the song “1 Up”. In a similar approach to Nas, Kepstar takes us into the streets, yet provides us with some very insightful lyrics about life and living in NYC.
We are all tryin to make it in this world and Kepstar is no different than me or you. He brings himself down to a real level where we can all vibe and feel what he is saying. Right now we are in a tough economy and Kepstar does his best to turn a negative situation into a positive one. The album also features a great track called “Goodbye Yesterday” and an equally great video that you can view here. Other features include- Devo D, Termanology and T.J. Fox. Stay tuned for the interview coming soon…You can stream/download his mixtape after the jump!
Another single off of Slaughterhouse’s upcoming album “Welcome to Our House”. The beat was produced by Mr. Alicia Keys…sorry…Swizz Beatz. He also does his usual MC schtick. Nothin like a Swizz Beat chorus. Slaughterhouse delivers as usual, although this song definitely goes in a different direction than the rest of their more “street” tracks. Still good though. I’m sure you’ll hear it everywhere soon enough.
