Depending what time of year it is, unfortunately things fall thru the cracks when the staff here is getting things in order for the Underground Hip Hop Awards. This project is definitely one of those. Filthy is a Grammy Nominated, Gold, Platinum, and Double Platinum producer, songwriter, arranger, composer, music executive, A&R, and entrepreneur based in Detroit Michigan. Having worked with the great of old and new Filthy has a wide history of music to pull from.  Stepping from behind the scenes he creates a musical sign of the times with “Filthy America”

There is only one vocal performance on this project via the song Behold a Pale Horse which Underground Hip Hop Awards nominee for best artist delivers a lyrical onsluaght from start to finish, no breaks needed.

With that said this project is mostly a instrumental album with sound bites scattered thru out  album. Starting off with the Inauguration its fitting to hear the voice of the late Coleman Young making his vision clear for the city of Detroit. We the people which is the song featured in the visual in this post feels like a soulful time warp. Sit back and enjoy the ride. We will leave it to you to discover the rest.

Every soundbite, every vocal snippet was strategically chosen and meticulously placed on the track(s) in a way to craft a narrative, maximize effect and evoke thought/emotional provocation.

You wont be disappointed

Da Ruckus New Album “Da Unreleased Episode”

Published

Emcee producer HUSH and UNCLE ILL has blessed us all with a blast from the past. Da Unreleased Episode is the last album Da Ruckus was working on before they started working on solo projects. This was the follow up work to Episode 1. They pressed 50 CDs and 50 Cassettes for fans and that was the only light of day the project seen. D.U.E. never got an official release and twenty plus years later hear we are. This album has gems!
The first track “Life Is A Gamble serves as a reminder and pays homage to the prior release Episode 1. Track two called “Eye Confess” features pre record deal D12 member Eiy-Kyu. These three emcees confess some issues from within to a beat that’s perfect for doing so. What ever happened to Eiy-Kyu?
Da Ruckus features their short lived Generation Techs crew on songs “We Are” and “Check It” featuring Da Brigade who are D12 members Kon Artis and Kuniva. GT lasted about as long as both songs combined but left us some solid recordings.
Over all this is a well rounded album.
The production and rhymes are more of what you loved about Episode 1. Out of five mics this a strong four. This album is a must hear for hip hop heads and available on every music streaming platform.

The product of a triumphant performance artist, composer and singer-songwriter, mB’s debut on Mahogani Music is a shift in artistic direction, a twelve-track collection of songs that epigraph transformation and creative self-awareness. Developed over the course of three years, H2DWITD details a process of liberation from a space of emotional affliction–marked by recurring obstacles and cyclical dissatisfaction–into a period of renewal and expanded understanding of self.

Dubterraneous One Be Lo-Fi and instrumentals

One Be Lo “After digging through my ‘90’s tape collection, I found old loops, samples & unreleased beats that I haven’t heard since cd’s became the popular format. The first batch of records (Inherited from my Stepfather…Ok maybe I borrowed them…Maybe I just took the records and never gave them back, but he didn’t have a record player any more so they begged me to spin time with them.) I ever chopped, are on these tapes. In the beginning when I first started making beats, I didn’t own any equipment besides a tape deck. I recorded samples from vinyl onto cassette so I could dissect them in my Walkman or in the car on the way to the studio with Decompoze. We booked sessions with D.L. Jones, and chopped the records in his basement. He had the ultimate set up which included the Akai S950 rack model and the infamous SP1200. We brought the records over, told D. L. where to chop, add drums, sequence, then put on tape so we could go home and write rhymes. Usually the sessions were 4-5 hours and we always left with 2 beats each. That period lasted around 2 years, then we eventually started making beats on the MPC 2000 XL.”
