The Infamous Queens-HipHop.com Rating System
Sunday, March 31, 2013
While the rest of the hip hop blogosphere trip over themselves in a race to post the same content, we here @ Queens-HipHop.com take pride in trying to spotlight new under the radar talent. In the case of 360 & Denzil Porter, what caught my attention was the concept of their latest video entitled Subway Series. Anybody born & raised in NYC knows about the infamous borough rivalries, & in this cut 360 & Denzil go at it representing two boroughs with a long history of hip hop feuds going back to the days of KRS & Shan. Like I said really dope concept and execution, check it out. Download available HERE, & oh yeah, #Queens all day....

If you love thought provoking lyrics, please do yourself a favor a cop KP's brand new double album The Psychic World Of Walter Reed (P.W.O.W.R.). The album is solid top to bottom, here's the new animated visual for one of my favorite cuts off the album The Winged People. All my Ancient Aliens junkies should appreciate this one lol....
Fresh off the release of his new solo effort, The Psychic World of Walter Reed, Killah Priest debuts a brand new music video from the project, choosing the cut "The Winged People." Directed by St. Peter, the clip offers up an animated visual of KP's belief in ancient human history, where aliens came down from the clouds and shaped the course of the human race.
The Psychic World of Walter Reed is out now.

Via http://www.battlefield.com. Aside from a few competitive shit talking games with a couple friends on NBA 2k13, and a little online Black Ops 2, I don't tend to get too much gaming in these days. Regardless, I've always been an avid gamer most of my life so I continue to keep up with current releases and the latest technology. Here's some just released gameplay footage from Battlefield 4, one of the most popular FPS franchises and biggest competitor to the Call Of Duty series. This game looks amazing.
Battlefield 4 will release Fall 2013. The "Fishing in Baku" video is shot entirely in-game and is the first glimpse of the human, dramatic, and believable single player campaign in Battlefield 4. Available for pre-order now.

"On April 16, N.O.R.E. (under the guise of P.A.P.I.) will release his fourth solo LP, Student of the Game. Already, he has dropped singles with 2 Chainz and Pusha T ("Tadow") and one with beloved hip-hop producer Large Professor ("Built Pyramids"), but for Noreaga, his Pharrell collaboration was a special one. So special, in fact the Neptunes hitmaker called the rapper's phone at 8 a.m. one morning, with no regard for his sleep schedule. "He didn't even text me, he just called," N.O.R.E. told "RapFix Live" host Sway Calloway."

Via http://www.swaysuniverse.com. Never agreed with them (well mostly Havoc) taking their dispute public, but I knew it was only a matter of time before they settled their differences.
"Mobb Deep isn’t linked by blood, but the Queens, New York, rap duo have a brotherly bond that has lasted 20 years. Last year though, all of that unity appeared to be in jeopardy as fans watched Havoc and Prodigy go through what appeared to be a breakup. There were immediate press releases and key photo ops, which were sent out to diffuse the situation, but fans and the media still questioned the future of the group.
On Friday (March 22), Hav and Pee came up to MTV News together to put all the speculation to rest. “Mobb Deep is like brothers, and brothers, we go through things,” Havoc said in an exclusive interview.
“At the end of the day, the music is the most important thing and our love for each other it’s only right we’re gonna get right back to work,” Prodigy chimed in."

Brooklyn's T.H.E.M. Recordings unveil their latest signee Innocent?, who kicks off the album campaign for his forthcoming 'Love It Or Hate It' LP, with the visuals for the Roc Marciano assisted single "Time For Change." Production for the single is supplied by France's Alterbeats crew who blend triumphant horn stabs and hard drums alongside DJ Modesty's scratch chorus that fuses quotables from M.O.P., and A.G. Directed by Donald Robinson Cole III, the video depicts both emcees swapping verses in front of various Manhattan backdrops as they declare their resolution to stop waiting for change and make it happen themselves. 'Love It Or Hate It' is scheduled for an early third quarter 2013 release and is set to include guest appearances from label mate Mic Handz, Roc Marciano and Tha Rockness Monstah, among others. Let the trials of Innocent? vs. The People commence...

It's been just over a year since the passing of legendary recording artist Jimmy Castor. To mark this occasion, Blunted Astronaut, DJ Doom and Nutso are proud to present a very special tribute to one of the most important B-Boy anthems of all time - the 1970 funk masterpiece "It's Just Begun".
Hailing from Brooklyn, NYC, Doom has been immersed in Hip-Hop culture since the days of his youth in the early 1980's. Graff writer, B-Boy, DJ, producer - there's not a lot the man hasn't done! On this, his third BA release, he teams up with Queens NY's own, Nutso for a truly unique project, revisiting a timeless classic that carries forward the musical legacy of the late, great, Jimmy Castor for years to come.
His trusty SP1200 is once again put to work, and Nutso combine their talents and with guest appearances by Large Professor, Tony Touch and El Da Sensei (The Artifacts) this limited 7" is guaranteed to be another Blunted Astronaut sure shot.
It's also worth noting that the label artwork (by Mr. Krum) is inspired by the layout and typesetting of the U.S. 45 on Kinetic - the much treasured 'original' version.

Cormega spoke in a deep insightful manner about how substance within music, is something that the powers that be avoid at all costs & how real quality music, goes unnoticed under the radar.
He also speaks on why up and coming musicians should move organically and not solely focus on sales.

Always been a big fan of Star going back to his days at Hot 97 & then later on with his online broadcast with VladTV & Thisis50. No longer interested in the politics and limitations of urban radio, Star has created his own monster with the brand new Shot97.com website, which features a live weekly broadcast from Monday to Friday 12noon to 2pm.
In this episode, Star blacks out on the Love & Hip-Hop reunion taping, Deion Sanders getting custody of his boys, President Obama following Star on Twitter, Tahiry being a rider and Martin Luther King taking a bullet for gay rights!!
Radio legend Troi Torain (STAR) always delivers hard-hitting objective truth. As a culture critic he is vicious, as a businessman he is relentless, as a luminary he is un-matched.
Star & Buc Wild have spanned the arenas of radio, television and publishing. In translating their distinctive style-of-no-style to the mainstream, Torain perfected the unique ability to captivate wider, audiences without compromising authenticity.
Considered radio pioneers by many, Star & Buc Wild have set precedents on the urban landscape and were recently inducted into News One's "Top 20 Black Radio Jockeys Of All Time."
Star & Buc Wild made the national stage on MTV (1999) but it was their radio show on New York's Hot 97 (2000 - 2003) that secured their place in Hip-Hop history. Star & Buc Wild's resume includes Around The Way Mag, The Source, MTV Networks, Hot 97, Power 104.1, Power 105.1, Pulse 87, Hip-Hop Weekly magazine, Vladtv, Thisis50, 100.3 The Beat and shot97.com.
This clip is from their LIVE show (12noon -- 2pm) on http://shot97.com.

Astoria's TReZ presents the visuals for "Crescent Moon," which reveals the Q-Borough emcee's evil alter ego, and the inner duality that ensues. Self directed, the visuals depicts TReZ at odds with his evil reflection, which he comes to realize has been responsible for his criminal behavior, despite his inherently good nature. Conflicted, TReZ decides the only way to defeat his twin, is to put an end to his own existence. Production is supplied by DJ Skizz of WNYU's Halftime Show (89 Tech Nine), who fuses hard drums over a haunting sample, which proves to be quite a fitting soundtrack to TREZ's narrative.
"I've been struggling with my alter ego for a while. Only now I realize that this character is a perfectly natural psychological construct. We can all become subservient to our imaginary self, however we must realize that we are far more superior than this mental projection. For without our thoughts and desires to fuel this identity, it would not exist. My only problem is that sometimes, I can't tell who's who?" -TReZ

Nutso's list is one list you don't want find yourself on. Find out if the Queens warrior can rest easy knowing that the job was done properly. 'Behind These Bars' is now available.

"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
