By now you’ve heard the verse that shook up hip hop by Kendrick Lamar; and whether you agree or disagree with his statements about his cohorts or being the King of NY; no can deny, that it was an open call for the best of the best MCs to speak their thoughts.
Social Control by Wordspit is not a #KendrickResponse but rather a commentary and elaboration on some of the things that were mentioned on Kendrick’s verse:

This is the first track off of Wordspits’ new project, WRATH OF THE ILLEST. With a menacing baseline and Wordspit’s rapid fire delivery, Tough Luck sets the foundation for WRATH, this will be released later on this summer.
Who’d A Thunk it!?? CRAZY!
From the homie DJ DUB:
So legend has it that a mixtape I did with my man DJ Victorious back in 2005, War Of The Worlds, was the first cd that had an image of Joell Ortiz on the cover. Sharing the cover with Crooklyn legend AZ, it was awe-striking situation for all parties involved. The legend continues that Joell even had the poster up in his living room. Shouts to Victorious for having the insight to recognize the potential of a former Jo-ell Quickman (i still have that 12” from the now-defunct Rawkus Records) who is now a regular in your hip-hop rotation. #Yaowa

Being the Black Milk aficionados that we are; the question to his latest instrumental EP is very simple indeed….
It’s Soul Fool!!!!
Being a Black Milk fan can be hard at times because, you want everyone to be able to explore their musical boundaries and interests, but let’s not get it twisted; Black Milk is no Flying Lotus. Waaay back in day  we were drawn to Black Milk’s seemingly effortless production style chalk full of drums, guitar licks perfectly looped samples. This instrumental album kind of embodies his work since then – he’s said in his verses and interviews how he likes to changes things up – but if you’re good at something, why stunt it?
Synth whack, Bring Soul Back.
