More music from North Carolina! This time is the nowdays duo Little Brother’s turn to present their video off the newly released album “May The Lord Watch”. ”Black Magic (Make it Better)” is produced by Focus… .
Being that we published what we didn’t know was part 1 we also have to publish part 2 of ”Hercules”. This is off ”Let Love” dropping end of this month.
This is to me another ordinary Common release! Really, I haven’t heard the full project yet but for what I’ve heard (and seen!!) so far I’m not expecting a big surprise!
Since Ras Kass released his debut album ”Soul on Ice” in 1996, he has released tons of music. Along with Planet Asia, Ras Kass has probably been one of the underground hip-hop artists out of Cali releasing most music.
”Soul on Ice 2” is being released throught the Columbia label Mello Music Group and features artists such as Styles P, Lil Fame, Immortal Technique, Cee-Lo Green, Snoop Dog and many others.
These Tanya Morgan members always manage to flip music just the way I like it! If you still haven’t checked the Donwill album ”One Word No Space” I recommend you do! I ended up buying 6/12 tracks on my first listen! I just might buy the rest of the album in the next few days! By the way…album is entirely produced by Von Pea!
I’m not a fan of videos being premiered on places such as Time Square. On the other hand this is the very first video off the upcoming album ”Eve” by Rapsody. ”Ibtihaj” is produced by 9th Wonder and features The Genius a.k.a. The GZA and D’Angelo. Money from Roc Nation was also invested to get Roxanne Shanté and Mary J. Blige to feature the video.
The last double digit episode folks! Once again comes a few classics but also some less known but very good funky tracks!

A great delivery by MC staHHr supported on production by Astronote! Although I’ve known about staHHr earlier this is the first ever post of this MC here on 1200.nu. Hopefully we’ll see more of her! And if Astronote rings any bells it might be because among others he’s worked with artists such as The Black Opera, King Magnetic and Magestik Legend.
