This is a classic GAMETIGHTELECTRO song from the vaults that was originally for the Paranormal Bar Stars album on Female Fun that was unable to be released. It popped up on a couple other releases as well:
After dropping three full lengths in a years time Sick Steen is back with The Altered Beast Mixtape. Collecting some of his favorite joints from those projects and more into a cohesive listening experience.
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.”

“Something In The Water” is the latest video from Free Radio’s “The Powers That Be” album which you should already have. The rellies worked really hard and went in deep on this one so please share. Also look for a new album from Free Radio coming this summer.
Its been a while since the release of his YOUNG, GIFTED, AND BLACK E.P. but MoMil aka MODE is back with the first single “Stunt Hard” from his upcoming project “Heart and Soul Trap Rap”. Here at Gurp City we really live this shit and Mode has been out there getting it from different avenues including his new clothing line Cool Moons.
Eons One recently let another Shed Dwellaz project ut of the archives, Children Of The Woods. Beats and music arranged by Eons, Tizoe “Da Vinci” & Grand Master Cylinder Stinkweed with lyrical stylings by Stinko, Tizoe, Lobiano, Zak1, Geno, Stretch & Shanky Tooth. Mixed by the legendary Bart “The Hit Man” Thurber. Some of that Redwood City flavor.
