Roadtrip: hip-hop beats
Mega Powers - Hit The Streets
Carl Lurid - Her Poem
Her Poem was released in March as part of Carl Lurid's recent project Love: THE EP. It's a dreamlike triumph over self-doubt with an ultimately grounding, atmospheric check of reality. I personally love the esoteric rhymes and artwork. Find more on Facebook and Bandcamp. I've got a feeling Carl would love the Button Poetry channel :)
When not lost in nostalgia,he can become cathartically aggressive and clever; although, he is not shy to expressive lyrics--laced with a weaving of hyperbole and understatements, which jointly act as an apt depiction of his mental illness. Carl is a writer before a rapper and puts that in his music.
Beneficence feat. AG (of D.I.T.C.) - Smooth Hardcore
Powerful words combined with an excellent visual. Hillside, N.J. spitter Beneficence hits the studio with a vengeance in his new video for Smooth Hardcore, a laid-back Boom bap journey, produced by the UK-based duo Jazz Spastiks, and featuring living BX legend, AG (of Showbiz & AG, D.I.T.C.). Buy it here.
R-Kive - Calm Before The Storm
