P.O.S. and Astronautalis [VIDEO]

There’s been so much buzz around Odd Future recently that it’s easy to forget how many amazing MCs there are out there, spitting truth into a mic.

Two of my favorites for the past few years have been P.O.S. and Astronautalis.  I haven’t written about them yet because I haven’t figured out exactly what to say to do them and their music justice.  From a lyrical, musical and production perspective their records push the genre forward, and on stage, they’re beasts. Individually, they kill.  Together, they eat the audience alive.

There are so many great little moments in this video, but Astronautalis’ performance from 2:18 to 2:48 tells you all you need to know about the passion and energy he puts into his music.

I’ll be writing about them more in the future, but for now – enjoy.

Arsonist & Dot The One – “Let My Tape Rock” [Music Video]

This is the newest from Philly rapper Arsonist feat. Dot The One and Jimmy Konway. The Biggie sample on this beat is dope. Off of Arsonist’s new mixtape Human Torch Swagger hosted by Dj R to the Izza, this is “Let My Tape Rock”:

Dot The One has really been gettin busy lately, readying up for his new mixtape Above. Ground. Level., to be released on July 6th. This will be the must-have underground hip hop mixtape of the year, if you want my opinion. Here’s a little preview of what you can expect on A.G.L.:

Download the full song here

Here’s a sick freestyle a cappella from Dot The One too. This mixtape is looking promising.

Stay tuned for more on Dot. I’ve been sayin it for a while, but really, it’s just a matter of time with this dude. Crazy talent.

Rebel Ramon – “They Can’t Stop Me” [VIDEO]

From an early age, Brandon Ramon was attracted to sports and Hip-hop music. He can recall listening to songs like “It Takes Two” by Rob Base and Rakim’s “Microphone Fiend.”

While his passion for hip-hop grew through childhood, his calling was not manifested until post-adolescence.

Brought up in the city of Richmond, Virginia, Brandon used events from his tumultuous upbringing, to fuel his music, even adopting the alias of the “Voice of Struggle.”

There’s something that just authentic about listening to Rebel Ramon. His music depicts the hardships of living in the inner-city while also presenting positive messages throughout. Recently, I randomly stumbled upon his latest video, “They Can’t Stop Me,” which presumably will also be featured on Rebel Ramon’s “Brainstorm EP” that is set to launch at the end of June. I’m looking forward to hearing more from this young hip-hop artist.

You can follow his tweets @RebelRamon.

Lethal Li – “Eye Con” [MUSIC]

Lithal Li embodies the spirit of empowered Cape Town hip-hop. she finds a balance between the deep-down swagger of backpack rap and the beautiful sonics of soul.  Having been an active emcee for some time now, she had some time last year to work at the Red Bull Studio on a solo EP. Take a listen to the full EP, “Eye Con”, on soundcloud, which harks back to the classic sounds of 90’s underground hip-hop.
