Bekay - Thug Music


"After many setbacks from hurricane Sandy, to countless losses in Bekay's personal life, he relentlessly gears up for his long awaited album release "Survivorman". Quoting the Brooklyn emcee him self. "I've been through hell the last 3-4 years, the kind of sh*t I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, but nothing is gonna stop me from reminding people the quality of emcee I am with an LP that will rival my last album Hunger Pains as the best work I've ever done, I define Hungry, and the true hip hop sound of the gutter, the struggle, and people who don't have a f*king pot to pis in". Bekay reminds us why he is known as that dude who absolutely goes there, releasing an X rated verbal onslaught over Alchemist classic production in "Thug Music" with lines that aren't for the weak of heart, such as "I'm a crook a prick, look I'm sick, like hooker spit, be an emcee? read a book you dick". It is safe to say he isn't playing games this time around and the voice of the Brooklyn streets will be heard."

Cashus King ft Christina Cardella - Victimized (prod PsyClones)

Victimized feat. Christina Cardella (prod. by the PsyClones)

During a time of great tragedy, the homie Cashus King delivers some powerful work as he is accompanied by the soothing vocals of singer Christina Cardella.

"VICTIMIZED isn't a broad condemnation of all police officers. It's just as much about good cops as it is bad cops. VICTIMIZED is not a statement solely about police violence, it also speaks to the victimization we inflict upon ourselves as blacks and minorities in America. It's about a system of institutionalized racism and it's effects on the mental states of those being oppressed and those doing the oppressing. I don't want people to get the impression that my entire catalogue is built on addressing controversy, because my message is a lot more nuanced and diverse than that. My aim is to touch all people regardless of race, religion, occupation, sexual orientation, or gender. I'm addressing the issues directly because I feel my message is needed, especially in a time when the "conscious" emcee is an endangered species."
