<a href=""> Madlib doesn't have regular fans; most are true diehards. I'm not one...yet, because I'm slowly becoming a convert. The guy's beats are nothing to f*ck with. "Boiler Makers" carries a dusty, layered groove that's been on heavy repeat. <a href="">Planet Asia's</a> Crack Belt Theater drops tomorrow and will serve as a warm-up to his Black Belt Theatre release, set to drop in 2011.

Kyle Rapps Feat. Planet Asia – “Hand Over Fist”

By | 2 Comments

<a href=""> Never heard of Kyle Rapps but his deep voice and Belief's production initially made me play this a few times this morning. Not that there's much here aside from raps about making money, presented in a string of rhymes that don't seem to bear much connection at all. The track might go ignored, pushed aside as more inbox fodder if it weren't for the gravitating production by Belief and Planet Asia's short but eclipsing vocal appearance. Choose your features and production wisely, otherwise there's a strong chance of being outshined. Download -- <a href="">Kyle Rapps Feat. Planet Asia - "Hand Over Fist" (Prod. by Belief)</a>.
