I uploaded a .zip file with a bunch of music from your favorite battlers, as well as some of the “older” guys that you damn young kids have probably never checked out. Click here to download the .zip and check out some solid tracks that I dig.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the music in here and the albums that the songs came from. As always, do yourself and the battlers a favor by supporting their music. It’s not affordable to travel to random places throughout the world to battle people for free.
Song: IAME – Maybe I’m High (Feat. OnlyOne, Sapient & Exclusive)
Album: IAME – I Am My Enemy
Breakdown: Both IAME and OnlyOne have competed in the GTNW division before and both are great on wax. This song has a killer beat (as all SandPeople releases do) and all people on this kill it.
Song: Ness Lee – Roarin’ 20′s
Album: Shit homie, just pick one.
Breakdown: Ness is absolutely of the best rappers in Grind Time and he destroys this song.
Song: NoCanDo – Paint Me Impatient
Album: NoCanDo – Paint Me Impatient EP
Breakdown: A favorite of mine from this super old NoCanDo EP. Fortunately for ya’ll, this is NoCanDo so the lyrics are still ahead of their time despite this being an old release.
Song: Okwerdz – Album Freestyle Pt. 1 & 2
Album: Random Acts Of Music
Breakdown: By now, hopefully most of you are aware as to just how good Okwerdz is at freestyle. This is from his first actual release from way back in the day, but the freestyles are still insane. He teamed up with A-Train, winner of the 2004 Scribble Beatbox Contest, to come up with a very innovative freestyle track.
Song: Pumpkinhead – Alkaline And Acid
Album: Orange Moon Over Brooklyn
Breakdown: One of my favorite releases that year, easy. Marco Polo is one of the best producers out today and him and PH made a great team on this album. Definitely recommended.
This is about half of the songs included in the .zip. I don’t want to spoil all of them! I hope you dig it.
