Stumbled upon this old interview that was done around the time Nas dropped his Hip Hop Is Dead lp. At the time, I believe him and 50 were having a little back n forth in the industry. Nas talks about their situation & goes on to name who he feels are the true Kings of NY. The video is actually very relevant to what's going on today in hip hop (Kendrick Lamar/Control), and it's a definite must see.

It's rare that I spotlight an R&B artist on here, but then again... there hasn't been many from the new generation that have caught my attention. The era I was a fan of, included artists like Mary J., Jodeci, Total, Faith Evans, etc. Amerie was probably the last new R&B artist I really got into. Some of you will recognize Mack from his acting, his most famous role is Michael Lee from The Wire.
What caught my attention about Mack's music is, pretty much the beat selection. On his debut album New York: A Love Story, Mack, flips a lot of underground hip hop classics into great new knockin' R&B tunes. Assisted by well known hip hop producer Salaam Remi, they cook up a throwback 90's R&B/NY hip hop gumbo into a very nice debut LP for Mack Wilds. I highly recommend the album, especially for people who are 90's heads like myself.... I promise you won't be dissappointed.
Check out a quick documentary below where Mack takes you threw his old stomping grounds in Staten Island and talks about the album. Also posted is his latest video off the project entitled "Own It". Follow Mack Wilds on Twitter.

This beat is tough & you can never go wrong with some nice horns. Jean did her thing too.
You have heard Grammy Award-winning trumpet player Maurice "Mobetta" Brown before. After all, he's appeared on LP's from Santigold, Ski Beatz, Prodigy, Talib Kweli, Cee-Lo, Diddy, Musiq Soulchild and countless others; but you heard his trumpet and not his voice.
Think Louis Armstrong and his trumpet uploaded for the 21st century to a Hip-Hop beat, and you begin to understand who this young genius is. Maurice is a classically-trained Jazzman mentored and supported by the iconic Wynton Marsalis and the legendary Ramsey Lewis. But "Mobetta" is also a Hip-Hop head for life, and that journey on this planet rock literally parallels the history and evolution of rap. Little wonder that Maurice not only blows the roof off God's sky with his horn, but he also spits lyrics the way Satchmo spit his own brand of vocalese back in the day. Yup, Mobetta is a horn-playing-rhyme-spraying-dancing machine that Jazz-Hip-Hop collaborators like Donald Byrd and Gang Starr's Guru, or Ron Carter and A Tribe Called Quest fantasized about in the early 1990s. No need to cram to make that Jazz/Hip-Hop experiment happen in these times because Maurice Brown is the living and breathing embodiment of it all, a one-stop shop destined to be this era's Quincy Jones. And then some!
Fresh off of winning his very first Grammy with Tedeschi Trucks Band for Best Blues Album of the year in 2012 (Maurice was the horn arranger for the 11-piece ensemble), Maurice is prepping his latest release, Maurice vs Mobetta, or, rather, Maurice's azz side versus his Hip-Hop persona. Maurice vs Mobetta features appearances from Talib Kweli, Consequence, Prodigy, Jean Grae and production from Fyre Dept, DJ Scratch and Maurice himself and its a mere sampling of what's in-store on Maurice vs Mobetta; as Brown has more in store, not only on this new effort, but coming down the pike. Know that Maurice vs Mobetta is a gumbo sound lab for this dynamic young trumpet player-arranger-producer.
And Maurice "Mobetta" Brown is just getting warmed up...

I thought I posted the video for this song when it dropped, but I actually only posted the audio. Now the internet is in a frenzy off one line in the record. That particular line reads as follows, "Before Nicki was wearing those crazy wigs/ I was doing verses for her, just hoping she made it big...". I'll be honest, when I first heard the record I thought to myself "oh wow I never knew Ransom ghostwrote for Nicki...", but then after some further thought I never recalled Ransom saying anything of the sort in his previous interviews. So the line was definitely taken out of context.
Regardless, I'm a big Ransom fan, I think dude is a beast. Even though it's revolving around a lot of bullshit, I'm kind of not mad at the exposure this story is getting him. Just might get a few more people to notice he's one of the best lyricists in the game, imo.
Via http://www.vladtv.com/ - New Jersey rapper Ransom explains his line about Nicki Minaj on "Man Alone," revealing that he didn't mean any disrespect to the "Superbass" rapper. He also shares how he felt when Nicki went off on TMZ, and says that she doesn't have any reason to snap at him, because he helped Nicki out early in her career.

"Nuclear Winter represents many things. It represents dark times in our lives, it represents the state of NY hip hop & how I feel about it, & it represents my blueprint on how I think the music should be done going forward into the future. This is my manifesto to all the people that doubted me & the kryptonite to all selfishness. It's a journey from darkness into light, & from bondage & the huge amounts of weight on our shoulders to breaking free and regaining our freedom. Nuclear Winter we're coming to take shine....." - Willie Maze
