Houston artist Kay Jay unleashes the blazing new remix to his track, “Hater Maker” featuring Z-Ro. Produced by Trakksounds, the song is taken from Kay Jay’s recently released debut project, “Tees, Trees & MP3’s”.
Turo Krazy is back and in full effect on his latest club effort, “Da General”. You’re probably thinking, TK only does underground Hip Hop and street bangers but this isn’t some watered down commercial release. Think back to the nineties when all the crews had that one amped up anthem on their projects. This is Da General’s take on that. Having wanted to work with the stunningly beautiful Andrea Marie, Turo connected with her manager Peter Puente and within a short time span from that, Lil E Films was set up, ready to bring the single to life. When asked about the video, here’s what Turo had to say concerning it:
“We set up the shoot V.I.P. style and had it crackin. We were aiming for that Notorious B.I.G. “Party and Bullshit” vibe so I instructed the posse to turn all the way up for this one. The Italian Dimepiece even had us all doing shots before the shoot, super dope! Most models that I’ve come across act stuck up but she held her own and showed us all love. Make sure to follow her on Twitter: @ANDREAMARIEXOXO
The track is a synth driven club joint produced by myself but with that rugged Hip Hop vibe we grew up on as shorties. Shouts also go out to DJ Venum and Martin Blancos for assisting in the video’s V.I.P. set up.”
TK is also working on a new solo album titled “Death Before Dishonor” and is also in the process of recording a joint mixtape titled “Public Enemies” with The Rude D.O.G. Join the party with Turo Krazy in his latest visual, “Da General”.
NOLA songwriter Dee Day invites us to look a little deeper in this visual for “Lose Control”.

Get familiar with Seven Oddities Records, an insanely talented underground Hip Hop collective that’s been doing it since 2000. 7oddz strives on creating all releases in house and are continuously performing in Chicago and surrounding areas. Well, the fellas just recently announced a brand new installment in their “Out For Blood” releases. This will be the third release of the collection and the first of four chapters.

To get things started, the Chicago rhyme spitters deliver the first single from said project in the form of a video titled “Last Dayz”. Don’t expect some trendy styled visual here, we are talking about Chicago and underground Hip Hop here. With AWalkInDaPark Productions manning the lens, we are treated to a gritty, red hazed colored clip with the entire crew on set. Upon viewing, you’ll have flashbacks to when the Wu-Tang dropped the “Protect Ya Neck” video.
For “Last Dayz”, we get serviced bars from crew members Clever One, DreamTek and Hobes with Tek providing a post apocalyptic vibe that fits the emcees precisely. The chorus features all three artists doing a back and forth delivery. Check out “Last Dayz” below and catch 7oddz performing songs from the album January 23rd in Chicago at The Windy City Independent Art Summit.

Wisconsin barbarian Taiyamo Denku takes a time out from working on material with CyphaDenMusic’s Dcypha and switches gears over to his Hecatomb crew affiliates for the explosive “TAKEOVERDRIVE”. This follows up his last single, the Jadakiss featured, “Life Like This”. Crew member Imaginary Friend (aka Murderface) handles the production of this release, flipping chops from one of The Doors classic cuts, “Five To One”. This is the same song sampled on Jay-Z’s “Takeover” record but on steroids. Catch the cover art where the semi truck from the movie “Maximum Overdrive” was featured.
As usually, Denku delivers masterful wordplay speaking on subjects such as the current state of softness in Hip Hop and the dumbing down of content. Let Taiyamo Denku and Imaginary Friend take you on a ride in overdrive on “TAKEOVERDRIVE”, which is again available as a free download for Hip Hop fans below.

“This is my blank canvas. The beginning. I avoided creating a complex concept to more appropriately display my journey, thus far. I have been extremely focused on creating music for the past 2 years and that is exactly what this project displays… In a time where the industry is thoroughly saturated, I have provided a unique take on modern music and a look into the mind of an aspiring artist. This EP is for anyone who has been stuck on the seesaw their entire life. Teetering on the edge of sanity, blinded by perfectionism and self-doubt. While those aspects of my life have been overwhelmingly prominent, I combat my downfall through a confident approach, shown specifically through my art. This is [Insert Title Here].” – J.J. Jabber
