Rockness & Suge White are now at 42 weeks of Monsta Mondays, and this time it’s Rock and Ruck over the much-used “Otis” beat. As far as duos go, Heltah Skeltah is at the top of my list, and this is easily my favorite “Otis” remix besides the Jada and Styles P version. Shouts to Duck Down.

Call them Kleptomaniacs or Robin Hoods, the Lo-Lifes influence on the hip-hop and rap game has been well-documented– they defined New York City streetwear in the 90′s, an era from which a lot of contemporary streetwear is derived in some form or another. The vestiges of the Lo-Lives movement can still be found, whether it’s in the form of a blogging Lo-representative or one of today’s most popular streetwear brands recreating an entire collection based on a Lo collection.
Skilligan’s Island (Landscape, 2002) was probably Thirstin Howl The 3rd’s (get it?) most famous record. Thirstin was a founding member of the Lo-Lifes, along with Rack-Lo and a couple others with whom I’m not familiar. Skilligan’s Island is marked by appearances from Lifestylers as well as a key guest spot from Eminem on “Watch Deez,” a sinister cut that contrasts two technically opposed but similarly warped emcees. Clutch and I have only ever met Rack-Lo, who came to Providence dipped out along with Sean P and Sadat X for a concert two winters ago. Major shouts due to Pistol Pone and Jap for making that happen! Hit the skip for the the Lo-Life documentary trailer, plus a few other Lo-related goodies.
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.”
Pete Rock & Smif N Wessun latest visual for “That’s Hard” featuring Sean Price and Styles P. Directed By Court Dunn, in association with Restless Films and Nah Right’s ‘One Shot’ Series. Monumental album is out now at major retailers (Best Buy, FYE), Independent and Mom & Pop stores. You can also purchase Monumental digitally via Amazon Digital or via iTunes.
Fans in the New York Tri-State, join Smif N Wessun for a FREE album release party, performance & photography exhibition TONIGHT at Tammany Hall located at 152 Orchard Street between Rivington & Stanton. Doors at 7PM. Music by Da Beatminerz (DJ Evil Dee, Mr. Walt, DJ Goldfinger, DJ Wayne Ski). Hosted by DJ Bazarro.
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.

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.
Earlier today, Camden, New Jersey native Apollo The Great dropped his newest mixtape entitled Apollo 21 for free via his website. If you’re unfamiliar with Apollo, get familiar now. His wordplay, punchlines and rhyme schemes are more complex than most, but his music is also extremely listenable. Apollo 21 displays Apollo’s lyrical mastery, and he is accompanied by well-established rhymers Freeway, Joell Ortiz, and Sean P! to name a few.
