[Album] Quake Matthews – “The Book of Matthew”

I was recently talking about the high quality of music coming out of the East Coast right now, and Quake Matthews definitely fits that category. The Book of Matthew is Quake’s latest endeavour, and it’s a solid album all the way through. Good news for you, the dude was generous enough to put it out for FREE! Normally when I listen to an album, I jump onto one or two songs first and the rest gradually grow on me. This time, I was jumping on nearly all of them. Early favourites are “Story of the Underdog”, “Back to the Song”, “Set You Free”, “Can I Breathe”, and “Don’t Mention It”. D.O. of Art of Fresh agrees:

Download the album below, and stream “Can I Breathe”.

[News] Shooting at Young Jeezy Show In London

News just broke about a shooting at the Jeezy show in London tonight. This comes not even 24 hours after Jeezys show got cancelled in Toronto yesterday due to another shooting.
We’ll keep you updated as the story develops…

Update: Sgt Basra said this in a statement:

“we responded to a report of a shooting inside the Music Hall. We have shut the area down — right now it’s a crime scene. Investigations are still ongoing. I have very little information on what’s gone on inside other than that there’s been a shooting and we have a person who has been taken to hospital.”

Second Update:

[Mixtape] The Game – “California Republic”

The Game comes through with his first offering since The R.E.D. Album with California Republic. This one is full of features… Drake, Rick Ross, Fab and Pharrell to name a few. And the big names don’t stop as The Neptunes, Boi-1da, Just Blaze and Lex Lugar all make appearances handling production. California Republic is a solid piece of work and seems like good preparation for his forthcoming album F.I.V.E.: Fear Is Victory’s Evolution set to be released later this year. Check the tracklist and then download below.

Update: I guess I jumped the gun on this one… All these “features” turned out to just be hooks from old/current songs. If you’re a fan of The Game this still bumps, so download below.

[Video] Raz Fresco “Donald Trump” (Dir: Prime)

Toronto MC/producer Raz Fresco dropped off his latest video “Donald Trump” from his latest project MCMXCV. The video was shot between Toronto and New York by director Prime. Despite my personal distaste for Donald Trump the real estate mogul (who criticized Barack Obama about a birth certificate) this track has a nice laid-back feel to it. I can definitely see this track getting some smoking session love. Take a look for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments section.

Be on the lookout for Raz Fresco’s upcoming project “Cakey Pockets” dropping this summer.

[Video] Blueprint – “Go Hard Or Go Home” (Dir: Blueprint)

“My entire mind-state is to be the best/ Not the hot new trend that you think is fresh/ I don’t care which path is the friendliest/ I’mma take the one that got no trace of human steps.”

Blueprint is back! The Columbus, Ohio native and Rhymesayers emcee just dropped the visuals for “Go Hard Or Go Home”, coinciding with the release of his latest album Adventures in Counter-Culture. Print waxes poetic on what work ethic and dedication to the craft mean to him. With the director’s credits for this video, as well as the new album and accompanying book credited to his name, I’d say he practises what he preaches. Check out the video below.
