Skyzoo x Torae

Skyzoo x Torae ft. Sean Price & Guilty Simpson - All In Together

Beef is entertaining, to be sure, but there are few things more beautiful than seeing two or more talented emcees check their egos long enough to go All In Together on a joint project. Skyzoo and Torae's forthcoming set is...Read More

Bop Alloy

Bop Alloy ft. Steph, The Sapphic Songstress - Not 4 Show

Some hip-hop artists treat the microphone (or turntables, or mixing boards) like a fashion accessory, and spend more time perfecting their outfits than honing their craft. Bop Alloy? To quote the chorus of the underground...Read More

Da Deputy

Da Deputy ft. Black Cobain - L.C. Pt. 2
