P Body tha Great gets self-reflective here, listing his favorite of the collaborations he’s done over the course of his long career.
“As one-half of Heltah Skeltah, Sean Price helped sustain New York’s mid ’90s underground rap renaissance. For his solo material, the Brooklyn artist made a name for himself in the mid 2000s by highlighting that his pockets were flat, not fat. Since then, the man also known as Kimbo Price has become one of rap’s most consistent, snarky independent artists, churning out high quality, lyric-driven material.
When Guilty Simpson reached out to Price to appear on his album, the eventual collaboration led to much more. The just-released, self-titled album from Random Axe teams Price, Simpson and Black Milk for an all-out lyrical and sonic free-for-all.”
This concert is going to be bananas. It’s billed as a ‘Monumental Night Of Hip-Hop,’ and by golly the bill is right. Random Axe (Sean Price, Guilty Simpson & Black Milk), Smif N Wessun, Maino, Jadakiss and Juelz Santana will all be gracing the same stage at the Highline Ballroom tonight. Doors are at 8PM, and tickets are available for $20 ($10 if you use the promotional code MONUMENTAL) right now! We’re in there like swimwear, but if you’re a starving artist or recent college grad, you could always take your chances and beat the crowd to see FlyLo for free at Le Poisson Rouge.

This is the title track from Pete Rock & Smif N Wessun’s upcoming album ‘Monumental’ due out on June 28th via Duck Down Music. The track features vocalist Tyler Woods on the chorus and a bravado-filled third verse from the Chocolate Boy Wonder himself. With every single that they drop, the title of this album seems more and more apt. Catch Smif N Wessun in NYC on June 21st at the Highline Ballroom alongside Random Axe, Maino, Juelz Santana and Jadakiss (grab tickets here).
To celebrate the release of their album, Random Axe dropped off the video for their track “Random Call.” The video, in all its animated glory, has received a lukewarm response, but the album has received nothing but stellar reviews. Cop the album right now via iTunes, or via Amazon where it is just $1.99 for today only.
In preparation for the release of their highly anticipated self-titled album (which is available right now via iTunes!), Random Axe delivers their most recent single “Black Ops” featuring Fat Ray. For those who do cop the album via iTunes, you’ll also receive the video for “The Hex” as well as the album’s digital booklet. If you’re in the Tri-State Area, make sure you hit one of the trio’s two NYC dates: June 21st at the Highline Ballroom with Smif N Wessun and Maino, or June 22nd at Southpaw in Brooklyn with Black Moon and Skyzoo. You already know we’ll be in there like swimwear.
With the Random Axe album due out in five days, Ruby Hornet’s Sean CK caught up with Da God for an honest, funny, and at times off-putting interview. Among other things, P Body talks about Guilty Simpson and Black Milk, the differences between Detroit and Brooklyn, and how P’s forthcoming album might just be the most ignorant album in hip-hop’s (relatively) short history.
Ruby Hornet: Can you describe the relationship between cats from Brownsville, and then Midwest folk from Detroit etc. There seems to be a relatable vibe between the two.
Sean Price: Man, ya’ll Detroit and ya’ll Chicago nigg*s, ya’ll are crazy. We ain’t like that out here. We get it poppin out here, but not like that. Ya’ll nigg*s are crazy! Having big automatic weapons an shi*t. We might have a pistol, you feel me, maybe a nine, at the biggest maybe a mac or a tech, ya’ll nigg*s be having Ar-15′s, you know what I mean, Big Johnny Rambo sh*ts in the back of ya’ll rides, we don’t do that out here. We got a bunch of fu*kin projects and a bunch of windows, so when you pull out an AK, yo ass is getting told on. Someone is telling on you. we can’t do all that. Nigg*s get it in, don’t get it twisted, but it ain’t like that. We put it in with small caliber weapons, compared to the sh*t ya’ll be doing.
Already, twenny ten started with a bang- or, as I like to say, a bong bong! So far:
- The Reflection Eternal mixtape (featuring Jay Elect and J. Cole!),
- Raekwon’s Coke Up In Da Dollar Bill,
- Emilio Rojas’ The Natural,
- Jay Electronica’s Victory, and
- If you didn’t catch it, Mark McGwire admitted to using steroids earlier today…
What’s To Come
It will only get better; with the promise of the new Rae, Ghost, and Meth group/album, the forthcoming Strong Arm Steady album (produced entirely by Madlib), releases from Luda and Lupe, Statik and Black Milk, Random Axe, Redman, and The Roots. Em’s Relapse 2, Nas and Damian Marley’s Distant Relatives, new Kanye, Cudder, and J. Cole. And sheeit, that’s just touching the surface of hip hop!
For our indie heads, you’ve got OKGO, Vampire Weekend (…), Animal Collective (yeaboi!), and the Cold War Kids. But 2010 holds more than just the promise of good music. Next month Vancouver will hold the 21st Winter Olympics, then in May the World Expo will be in Shanghai, and on June 11th the FIFA World Cup will kick off in South Africa.
2010 marks Obama’s second year in office, and with health care tucked securely under his belt still hanging in the balance, we can only hope that there will be the opportunity to tackle other equally pressing issues like unemployment, terrorism, and climate change.
To that end, 2010 holds the promise of the US’s first plug-in electric car (courtesy of Chevrolet, called the Volt and scheduled to drop in November). To charge the Volt, one need only plug it into a standard household outlet and it will be powered for 40 miles (which exceeds the distance of the average American’s daily commute). Beyond that point, minimal gas is used to propel the vehicle 300+ miles!
Big things are already poppin’ in twenny ten, and there is much, much more to come. Hit the skip for 15 brand new tracks from the Wu Tang and Wiz, Strange Fruit Project and Statik, Ryan Leslie and Wale, Bun B and Jump-Off Joey, plus an unreleased Drake verse for his smash hit Successful.
Detroit’s famed producer Black Milk gives you a rundown of what to expect from his camp in 2010. Three albums: the debut Random Axe album (Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, and Milk), Searchin’ For Sanity (with Melanie Rutherford, who was featured on a track called Killaz from the Slaughterhouse album), and, last but not least, Milk’s next solo album Album Of The Year. At the very least, watch this video to see how B.E.T.T.E.R. music gets made.
With their debut album on the way (no release date has been officially posted, but the album is near completion), what better time to give you some background on the esteemed members of Random Axe.
Here’s the track that sparked it all, off Guilty Simpon’s solo debut Ode To The Ghetto, featuring Sean P and produced by Black Milk.
And here’s the first track that was leaked of the supergroup’s upcoming album:
