Update: Stoupe The Enemy Of Mankind - Decalogue

Legendary Jedi Mind Tricks producer and beat brainchild Stoupe The Enemy of Mankind preps the March 31st release of his debut solo release: "Decalogue." For over a decade, and through 6 hit underground albums, Stoupe has been creating sonic backdrops for Vinnie Paz's unique brand of hardcore lyricism.

Now, Stoupe steps out on his own with "Decalogue," a modern masterpiece. Crafted with an exacting eye towards maintaining the balance that has made his production style instantly recognizable the world over (and has inspired an entire sub-genre of imitators and impersonators), Decalogue is the long-awaited producer album from one of underground hip-hop's best. Pairing up with the upper echelon of indie emcees from across the hip-hop spectrum, such as Slaine (La Coka Nostra), M.O.P., Saigon, Joell Ortiz, Outerspace, the Army of the Pharaohs fam & more, Stoupe truly expands the scope of indie hip-hop with this album.
True fans of the underground sound stand up for this one!

I'm speechless, finally a solo album from one of the underground's most talented producers, Im sure you all got tired of Vinnie Paz as much as I did.
Below is the album's single for your enjoyment.

Pretty nice track and I really cant wait for this...

Artist Info:
Since the release of his first full length album, Irreversible, Grieves has been called a breath of fresh air, a breakaway phenomenon, and a lyrical mastermind. Touring constantly, Grieves stunned crowds all over the country with his distinctive voice, lyrical precision, and unparalleled style. Following Grieves' encouraging reception and a stint on the CMJ Top 20 Hip Hop charts, fans speculated on what would be next for the emergent artist.
88 Keys and Counting
is the response. A joint venture with friend and renowned Seattle based producer, Budo, 88 Keys is a matured record with themes that will challenge fans old and new alike. Armed with a distinct and fluid sound that will delight your ears and rouse your cerebrum, Grieves' second effort is not to be overlooked.

Underground9 Overview:

This album incredibly reminds me of Blu & Exile's '07 album "Below The Heavens", two unknown artists teamed up to craft an amazing mixture of rich beats, unique rapping style and honest lyrics.
Take out the instrumentals and you're left with 11 songs, 2 of which have no rapping in it, that's right, Grieves sings and he's damn good at it too. "October In The Graveyard" is one of the two, took me a while to appreciate it but the beautiful beat and deep harmonizing made it into one of my favorites.
This is a very unique release, Grieves is nothing like what we're used to hear, starting from his weird persona and geeky looks to what you would consider immature acting, but he doesn't try to be what he's not, his lyrics express that, and he does well in approaching this subject in the laid back "Identity Cards".
No need to look for highlights in this album, there's no fillers nor bad songs, my favorite is the dark lullaby "Kings", amazing beat wrapped in the abstract lyrics. I just love the mature metaphors, the meaningful subjects, the visuals he describes, this album is definitely my favorite of 2008, it has everything I could ever ask for.
The piano has 88 keys and each key differs in sound, Grieves and Budo managed to expand into more than just that, it's uniqueness is what makes "88 Keys & Counting" a classic.

I'm working on a new "The Archive" compilation, since many seem to have enjoyed the last one, and it will feature what I consider 2008's best songs, you can send me an email (Underground9Blog@hotmail.com) with the names of your 08's favorite tracks that you feel should be on it, it will be very appreciated.

Artist Info:
The groundbreaking new artist Sadistik is quickly raising eyebrows with his debut solo album “The Balancing Act.” At only 22 years old he has developed a sound that is truly unique as he seamlessly blends his signature of deeply poetic lyrics with brooding, symphonic soundscapes filled with beauteous live instrumentation.
In addition to his own innovative rhyming style, Sadistik collaborated with the likes of underground hip-hop icons Mac Lethal of Rhymesayers Entertainment and Vast Aire from the highly regarded duo of Cannibal Ox.
Sadistik can be found doing shows around his home state of Washington performing his shockingly energetic live shows. While he writes all of his own music, his biggest inspirations range the musical spectrum from Sage Francis all the way to Radiohead. And although traces of these influences can be found in Sadistik’s music, one thing is for certain: he has created a sound that is truly his own.

Underground9 Overview:
Look at the album's cover, notice the cold colors, shadows, and the sadness depicted; notice the beauty of it, levels of abstract regions opposed to reality. It perfectly symbolizes the album's tone, Sadistik's complex poetry and the dark, vivid production.
Perhaps the album's biggest weakness is it's complexity, a big jump trough Sadistik's thoughts, dark and depressing thoughts. While I enjoy listening to music in many different moments, some hypes me up, some cheers me up, but in the cold days where I'm alone and spend time reflecting I would enjoy paying attention to the deep poetry heard in this release.
But I gave in to all my fears instead
The only thing that ran more than me (were the tears you shed)
When you told me you cut inside ya flesh
Youre depressed and youd rather die instead
I could feel my heart tear to bits
(The first time Ive cried ever since my parents split)
And I knew, there was no you and I
I kissed you goodbye, it felt like suicide
- "November"
This is truly a work of art, good songs are too many to mention, my favorite is "Writes Of Passage", perhaps the lightest on the album, Cannibal Ox's Vast Aire drops a short and incredibly simple verse before Sadistik delivers his thoughtful lines.
We walked a broken path while the sun was bleak
And we were holding hands on these rusted swings
That I called "us" and my love would sink
underseas that we would drown underneath
When you would swim deep to catch my lip's speech
To try to catch drifts to catch what it means
And you found what would grow between us
So I thought about you while I wrote The Phoenix
And now my spine shivers from the notes that you speak
of perfect pitched melodies and emotions you seek
- "Ashes To Ashley"
I understand how this album can be overlooked due to it's meaningful lyrics, the production captured me enough to make me pay attention, sometimes that's all it takes to recognize a true jewel and I hope you all will, for now I'll keep it among my top three for this somehow unsatisfying year.

  • All Tracks Are VBR [Grouprip]
Underground9 Overview:
This is a mixtape from praised underground mc Immortal Technique, a release that follows a 5 year long absence, hosted and mostly produced by DJ Green Lantern.
Green Lantern did a pretty disappointing job on the production which is simply awful on the track "The 3rd World", barely decent on the rest while surprisingly acceptable on "Death March", Chino XL did an even worse job on "Lick Shots", predictably, even Bronze Nazareth's beat sounds weak.
Immortal Technique does come up with good lyrics, even thought I can't say that I enjoyed his overaggressive approach on some songs and the senseless casual verses, politics is still a very used subject in the lyrics but tracks like "Reverse Pimpology" are embarrassing to listen to.
This release can show off one good gem that can be compared to Immortal Technique's previous work, that is "Crimes Of The Heart", an amazing song which comes along a beautiful beat and Technique sounds more relaxed, a similar approach to the one displayed on his previous albums.
So far this album sounds more of a commercial move by the rapper, what people should take in consideration is that this is nothing more than a mixtape, Technique has stated that he stopped working on his next album recently just to take care of this release, I'm expecting "The Middle Passage" to be closer to what we heard in his past albums, I sure hope it will.

Apparently some people got their feelings hurt by the words above, some idiots don't accept this being a mixtape, while others don't agree with my view.
I am a huge Immortal Technique fan, his second album is the only 10/10 rating on here, it had everything, from the feeling to the message, but this release is not even close to it's level.
I realized that i might have been a little harsh on the rating, now that I've passed the initial disappointment i can appreciate this release a little more, however, I still stand with what i wrote before.

Underground9 Overview:
This is the fourth studio album by rapper Doujah Raze.
This masterpiece went through less than an unknown release, after listening to Raze's performance on Snowgoons' "Black Snow" i was very curious about the artist and downloaded this album without hesitation.
Among the perfect flow and great beats i was captured by laid back lyrics and the artist's approach on the various tracks, not the usual street poetry you would find on most underground albums but equally enjoyable.
Out of 10 tracks only one disappointed me, there's not much i can say about this release, the album is short, check it out yourself.

Underground9 Overview:
This is the debut album from German production team Snowgoons, currently signed to Babygrande Records.
This album died pretty quickly for me, i enjoyed my first few listens but never went back to it again, only recently i picked it up while waiting for Black Snow.
And this is the biggest problem with this album, it's too forgettable, the big names on the tracks don't provide anything more than good flows and an occasional good verse.
So i'm here listening to the songs, even though i've been hearing Reef The Lost Cause rap on "Never" for the past three minutes i don't recall anything coming out of his mouth that captured my attention, the constant insults in battling lyrics are barely covered by the amusing wordplay, what is capturing in this song? the beat, the heavy bass and the repeating strings, the Snowgoons did a very good job on this aspect.
Turn listening to "Gunz", the beat is very sinister and complex, what to expect now besides a good lyrical approach from the rappers, which is barely achieved by Sean Price and just a complete mockery on Jus Allah's side, now i'm amazed by how dark and intimidating Doujah Raze's performance is, the lyrics aren't particularly good but he doesn't sound as bland and boring as the other two.
So basically this is what happens on every track, you get a good beat followed by cheap performance and an occasional good verse, disappointing if you ask me, but pretty predictable.
The artists that managed to come up with a good performance or at least be original are very little, including the Kreators on the beautiful "Wait A Minute" and the impressive performance by Born Unique in "Real World", not forgetting Edo G which has the only relaxed feel on the album, while Afu-Ra raps hard and amazes on his track.
Disappointing but acceptable, German Lugers is not something to remember for time to come but it's easily enjoyable for whoever isn't looking for that amazing lyrical songs we are used hearing from those artists, Snowgoons are talented and their beats are something i sure will remember.

No name for Nas' upcoming album

It will be untitled.

Update: Doap Nixon - Sour Diesel

If you listened to Army Of The Pharaoh's "Ritual Of Battle" you should already know who Doap Nixon is, in my opinion this late addition killed every track he was on, so this release is definitely something i'm excited about.
The album will feature guest appearances from the AOTP, including Vinnie Paz, Outerspace, King Syze, King Magnetic, Reef The Lost Cauze & more, as well as production from some of independent Hip Hop's most respected producers including Apathy, Snowgoons, Stu Bangas, Undefined, Stress, Skammadix & many more.
The release is very promising, for now enjoy the dope cover.

Aren't you excited? From what we know Ill Bill's album is gonna be released this month... too bad we don't know shit.
What we all shoulda known is that Ill Bill's "The Hour Of Reprisal" was nowhere near, the constant previous delays and the lack of news made me give up on this release.

Fortunately we get 3 new tracks, available through his MySpace page, and a good webrip of the songs that you can download here.

Sick Jacken, Muggs & Necro form new group "PCP"

There is a new album in the works from Death Rapper Necro & La Coka Nostra / Psycho Realm affiliate Sick Jacken featuring production from DJ Muggs in the works.
According to the Sexorcist himself, “We allready recorded 3 songs so far, 1 song is completely done, and is a fucking banger!!! that’s the level, the bar that we are setting for this project. At this point, Muggs is doing all the beats. If I have it my way, he will do the entire album”.
Necro explains the concept; “The idea behind PCP came when me and Jacken kept talking about working together on tour, when we did Canada together” he added, “Psycho+Logical- connects with Psycho Realm, it just seemed catchy cuz we both rock psycho in our names and that’s where “PCP” came from, and Jacken was feeling the concept. The C in PCP stands for Cypress, so it was meant to be”

Underground9 Overview:
This is the debut album from underground supergroup eMC.
Many of you should already know the rap legend Masta Ace, his amazing work in the past is very respected, right after the release of "A Long Hot Summer" a shocking rumor about his retirement started circulating around the web, but barely a year later the news about his new formed group surfaced, with members being Punchline, Wordsworth and Strick, the fans were excited about the following release despite the numerous future delays.
The album leaked two months before the stated release date, something that could have severely damaged the album's sales, but the album turned out to be a modern day classic, my expectations were overly exceeded.
The album's tone is something that impressed me, fresh lyrics and calm flows with a touch of irony on every track, the very original and capturing songs don't show off poetic or complex verses but simple words and light subjects, a tribute to music from these hip hop veterans.
Tracks like "Make It Better" and "We Alright" are cheerful and heart lightening, while the amazing "U Let Me Grow" is a deep tribute to the artists' mothers, a very personal, emotional track and perhaps the one that i enjoyed the most this year.
Another song that amazed me is "Winds Of Change" where the artists rhyme over an amazing beat, their verses are short and simple but it's what mostly makes it enjoyable on every listen.
Hip hop needs albums like this right now, support the artists and buy their album.

Bronze Nazareth, a Wu-Tang affiliate producer that already worked on albums like "Wu-Tang Meets Indie Culture" before his debut entitled "The Great Migration" that sold a low number of copies but proves Bronze Nazareth's stability as a rapper and his outstanding work as a producer.
I remember how long i awaited the release of this album, playing "The Pain" over and over again, when i heard the final product i was more than satisfied, amazed by tracks such as "Poem Burial Ground" and the beautiful "Hear What I Say!", unbelievable lyricism and flow are richened by the dirty jazzy beats, it's easy to recognize a Bronze Nazareth work.
Despite the solid point of this album being the production Nazareth shines on his performance, his subjects are on point and guest artists don't disappoint.
Songs vary from fast paced beats to slow flowed harmonious ones, you will be impressed by how good this album is, despite the limited hype it was introduced with.
