Stream: CyHi The Prynce – “No Dope On Sundays”

Posted by on Nov 19, 2017 in Audio | 0 comments

CyHi The Prynce has been an underground favorite for more than a few years now. He has several mixtapes that he has dropped with features from some of your favorite rappers (2 Chainz, Big K.R.I.T., Childish Gambino, Yella Wolf…just to name a few). But in actuality, CyHi needs no features. His lyrical prowess has made many make a double take when finding out he is an ATLien (Stone Mountain, GA to be exact). He’s part of Kanye West’s
GOOD Music artist roster and has been argued to be Kanye’s ghostwriter. Never the less, his buzz has been increasing in the last year with some freestyles that have gone viral (Team Backpack, Sway In The Morning) and he has finally delivered his anticipated album, “No Dope On Sundays”.

The album has features from Kanye, Pusha T, Jagged Edge, Estelle, Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz and more. Available here for streaming courtesy of Spotify.

Video: Remy Ma – “Wake Me Up” ft. Lil Kim

Posted by on Nov 19, 2017 in Video | 0 comments

To say the least, Remy Ma has had a great year in 2017. Following the success of two heavy rotation singles with her rhyme partner Fat Joe, she has had a few other milestones; recurring appearances on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop, bringing out some of the culture’s most iconic female rappers during her Hot 97 Summer Jam performance, and winning best female hip hop artist at this year’s BET Awards. With the buzz “all the up”, the release of a solo album is the next best move.

“Wake Me Up” is Remy’s first solo single from her anticipated album and it features hip hop icon Lil Kim. The song uses the same piano sample heard in Kim’s classic track “Queen B*tch” and Remy’s opening bars are done in the same cadence as Kim did on the track 20 years ago. Remy goes in her aggressive manner as she let’s it be known that she’s back and not going anywhere. The visuals to the track are below. #PRESSPLAY

Audio: The Diplomats – “Once Upon A Time”

Posted by on Nov 19, 2017 in Audio | 0 comments


During the early 2000’s, Harlem,NY hip hop collective The Diplomats were a movement to be reckoned with and influenced the culture on a worldwide level. The span of the influence included their take on fashion (mainly credited to lead rapper Cam’ron’s early habit of wearing pink), their rhyming, attitude, mixtape hustle, and their sound. Backed up by soulful samples that were often sped up over drums, many of the group’s tracks were banged out by the production team The Heatmakerz. Dipset, as they have become known as, composed of four core members (Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freekey Zeeky)but also included rappers Hell Rell, Un Kasa, 40 Cal, J.R. Writer, and Duke Da God. As it grew, it gave energy to the careers of others like Stack Bundles(RIP), Max B, NOE, Vado, and more.

At the peak of the Dipset reign, there was a falling out between members (mainly Cam And Jim, which has been aired out publicly on many occasions) and the steam for the movement slowed down as the members began to work individually. Though there was success on some occasions and there was talk about a Dipset reunion years ago, it never formulated. Well it seems that has changed…..

After yet another public dispute earlier this year between Cam and Jim (which has always been dismissed as brotherly disagreements and never true beef) and the release of Cam;s latest project “The Program”, The Diplomats drop a single called “Once Upon A Time” which features verses from both Cam and Jim. And to round it out, the production is done by none other than The Heatmakerz! A taste of a Diplomats reunion……will we get it this time? Time will tell. But in the meanwhile, stream “Once Upon A Time” via Spotify. #PRESSPLAY

Video: Cam’ron – “Lean”

Posted by on Nov 10, 2017 in Video | 0 comments

Harlem, New York’s own Cam’ron is back at it again with his latest mixtape release, “The Program”. Though its been a few years since his last release, Cam is very active on social media and has made a few appearances on “Love & Hip Hop” with his significant other Ju Ju. Cam has released a few videos at his leisure and has hinted that he will be retiring from music after his next album drops, but we all know Cam can’t stay away too long.
The Diplomats boss offers us his first visual in promotion of “The Program” release. The track, “Lean”, features a replaying of the well-known song “Lean On Me” and features the voices of the youth singing in between introspective verses delivered only in the way that Cam’ron could do it.

Check out the full mixtape below, courtesy of Spotify.
