Phil Adé – “Something Out Of Nothing”

By | 3 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/04/new-music-sir-michael-rocks-exing-o-g-version"> "Suffering is nothing, no time huffing and puffing/You talk about hell, n*gga I grew up in the oven..." There isn't a person on Earth with the ability to convince me 400 Degreez was sub par. As one of my personal favorite LP's ever recorded, I admire when artists pay homage to the album and with Phil Adé's newest outing, he does just that. "Something Out Of Nothing" finds the DMV native bobbing and weaving his way through three impressive verses over Juve's classic "Ha." Scratch that. Adé bodies this. Point. Blank. Period. The hook is what it is, but focus more on the bars he strings together throughout. They're effortless and with each mp3 since last year's <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/download-phil-ade-the-letterman">The Letterman</a> (late to the party), I find myself becoming a bigger and bigger supporter.

No Sleep

Hones-T Feat. Gudda Gudda, Boogz Boogetz & Milli Millz – “Bang Em In The Face”


<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=184813"> You take your Hip-Hop way too seriously if you're not slightly chuckling at the full name of this song. Forget that we've got three stuttering rap names and one unnecessary hyphen, the fact of the matter is "Bang Em In The Face" immediately loses toughness for overly-specifying where said banging might take place. Apparently, "Bang Em In The Back," "Bang Em In The Heart" and "Bang Em In The Chest" weren't going to hit the target. And, of course, simply using "Bang Em" would've been way too generic. Questionable titles aside, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/hones-t">Hones-T's</a> indictment-warranting cut from his upcoming No Sleep release goes harder than a H.

Kenna – Land To Air Chronicles: The Chaos & Darkness x “Chains” Video

By | 2 Comments

<a href="http://www.tonic.com/deed/get-kennas-new-single-and-downloads-become-dollars-to-his-cause/"> Today marks the official return of Kenna, three years elapsed since his acclaimed last release, Make Sure They See My Face. Originally slated to drop on March 4th, a failed hard drive delayed Land 2 Air Chronicles 1: Chaos And The Darkness - one of a three-series set of EPs precluding his full next full length album, Songs For Flight. Still, things work out better on their own at times because the delay created a window for the first EP's single, "Chains," to receive an MTV video debut today. Directed by Orson Wales, the visual is a hallucinogenic adventure through the nightlife of LA, replete with tweaked-out, Black Swan-esque moments and featuring cameos from Chad Hugo and Malice. Beyond the music, Tonic.com is <a href="http://www.tonic.com/deed/get-kennas-new-single-and-downloads-become-dollars-to-his-cause/">donating 99 cents</a> towards Kenna's clean water initiatives for <a href="http://www.tonic.com/deed/get-kennas-new-single-and-downloads-become-dollars-to-his-cause/">every download</a> of "Chains" over the next six days.
