The Vinylcologist sais:

Earlier today marked the 4 year anniversary of Action Bronson’s Dr. Lecter album being released to Itunes. While most everyone didn’t remember, I made sure to.
We all watched as the once unknown chef from Flushing, Queens grew as an artist, performer, weed connoisseur, TV show host, and most of all an important figure in hip hop culture. From dabs to fine olive oils Bam Bam has helped hip hop progress.
Hop up in the 850 and Time travel with Bronson and myself on a journey from his early days to his current flames, with one offs, exclusive blends, rare b sides, and some of everyone’s favorites. Let’s help the Action fans of today know the Bronson of yesterday.

Premiered by Fader

Pre-Order on AppleTunes

Pete Rock sais:

I’m gearing up for the release of “Petestrumentals 2” with Mello Music Group. The first single “One, Two, A Few More” is actually a beat I made in 1995 and just sat on for years for the right moment. Now, I get a chance to release this and more new & unreleased music never heard by my fans with Mello. This instrumental LP will inspire the masses in anything you are doing. Just apply P2 to it and get on the road to success.

Preem sais:

DJ Premier presents Ras Kass in Session 8 of Bars in the Booth. Watch as Preemo lays a beat for Ras Kass to rip into.

Mello Music sais:

For Oddisee, “The Good Fight” (OUT MAY 5) is about living fully as a musician without succumbing to the traps of hedonism, avarice, and materialism. It’s music that yields an intangible feeling: the sacral sound of an organ whine, brass horns, or a cymbal crash. It’s a meditation on our capacity to love and the bonds binding us together. It’s our ambition and greed warring with our sense of propriety – a list of paradoxes we all face when living and striving.

BigBoyTV sais:

The legend is here to Dre to talk about Straight Outta Compton. making Nothing But a G Thang with Snoop Dogg, the last time he talked to Eazy E, and more!

PART 2 of Big Boy’s explosive interview with Dr. Dre! Topics up for discussion include the making of The Chronic, meeting Kendrick Lamar, working with Tupac, and more!

Vice Munchies sais:

Fuck, That’s Delicious is a show for the people. We tirelessly pour through comments on the You Tube player to make sure we know what our audience wants to see. After a big board meeting, we gathered our data and brought it to the attention of the cast of FTD. Action Bronson, the show’s host, quickly called a meeting in East New York where he and co-star Big Body Bes were about to do an in store at the Dominican cell phone spot to see the comments himself. Here is what they had to say.

It’s amazing the things that show up on the internet , and lucky for us this is something that may have been lost to the “had to be there” section of history if not for the upload by YouTube member Hip-Hop Entertainment . Pac uses bars that ended up as 5 Deadly Venomz from his Strictly 4 My Niggaz LP , Puba is straight off top , and Treach I can’t figure if it’s written or not .

Doo Wop and Tariq have a new LP on the way . This gives an idead what to expect . Also tomorrow night , Doo Wop will release a mixtape of all unreleased joints between he and Tariq in advance of the LP on Slimstyle Records.
