Grand Killa Con (Luke Sick & Brycon) – “Hemmed Part One (Casualties)”

Posted by TheMayor

I was gonna write something up but Foul Mouth Jerk has a true gift with words:

“You know what seems to be happening a lot in recent years? Super Groups. Conversely you know what seems to be lost to the annals of history? Rapper/Producer albums. Not the Kanye West “a producer that raps” type, I mean one consistent, cohesive musical vision throughout an entire album done by 1 MC and his DJ/Producer or production team. Up until about 1993 it’s pretty much how all rap albums were made, these days not so much. Well you know who’s combining these two seemingly dynamically opposed concepts? No, you probably don’t because you don’t stay up on ill shit the way I do. But the answer is Grand Killa Con, a joint effort from Gurp City All Star Luke Sick, the lyricist behind projects like Sacred Hoop & Grand Invincible, and Brycon, a producer whose worked with everyone from Action Bronson to Living Legends to Masta Ace.

As a super group I’m gonna go ahead & rate them firmly right between The Hot Boys & The Traveling Wilburys. As a rapper/producer combo, I would put them somewhere in the neighborhood of a Marley Marl & Kane. Their first leak ”Hemmed pt.1″ is the beginning of their run up to this summer’s release of their full-length “Year of the Tre Bag” and is accompanied by a video that’s as grimy as the album title suggests.”

TRUNK DRANK – “We Got That” – New Single

Posted by TheMayor

tdtrunk

After restocking the trunk and getting focused, everyone’s favorite party group is back. “TRUNK DRANK” with a new album for 2013 “LOUD MUSIC IN THE PARKING LOT!!!” From the title alone you already know what you’re about to get into, so buckle up and prepare for the ride. Picking up right where they left off these guys didn’t stray too far from the last album, with production from legendary INKONE, BOAC of the Sky Walkers, Philip Treezy, MACLANE from Rec League, and the Yole Master himself FATEES this album is deemed to be a underground hit.

With the first single ” We Got That” produced by BOAC the tone is set for all partiers ready to get their GURP on. This is the perfect track to play at a function, with Heavy 808 Slap and Classic Trunk Drank Lyrics you can’t help but get the urge to get it crack’n!!!

Other tracks that stick out are “TD in the Building” produced by INKONE this upbeat electro boom bap introduction lets you know that Trunk Drank is back and hasn’t missed a step. Another track to look out for is Countdown produced by MACLANE. This up-tempo song will definitely bring the ladies to the dance floor. Permission produced by Bored Stiff’s own BIG SHAWN will capture a lot of the reggae heads that’s ready to release some of the finest Cali has to offer. Loud Music in the Parking Lot is definitely a good investment for those who want to get away and go hard for the weekend or for those who just want to kick back and listen to some good rap music without the extra.
