Bun B made a recent trip to Boston to see the New England Patriots defeat the Houston Texas in the NFL playoffs. While there, he hooked up with Fizzyology to create a video for the smooth track “Hustler’s Ringtone.” Fizzyology’s self-titled album is available for purchase HERE.

“Fuck the system saying no to master…”
Statik Selektah is back with “Never a Dull Moment,” the latest video off his well-received Population Control album. A simple piano loop melody is the foundation for the emcees and all three do their thing. Bun B with his self-referenced “poison flow” shines in the coveted third verse spot. You can purchase Population Control via iTunes HERE.

“Once upon a time on the corner…”
Smoke DZA’s first single from his Rolling Stoned album offers a story on a doomed, drug dealing basketball prospect, and a vivid description of the mentality of a group of young men groomed on the streets. DZA handles the basketball player’s tale, chronicling how his focus on passing around drugs instead improving his jumpshot brings about his downfall. Bun B tackles the latter story by not focusing on one individual, by detailing the lifestyle (cars, women, clothes etc.) of a group of friends raised on the streets. Big K.R.I.T. does well on the production, using a drum kick that sounds very similar to the one used on Outkast’s ”Elevators.” A verse would have been welcomed, but K.R.I.T. does a strong job making his voce heard on the chorus that brings together the hustlers, tricks, hoes, killers and other assorted street personalities that make up the corner. DZA’s Rolling Stoned album hits stores on August 30.

When a buzzing Hip-Hop artist gets signed to a major label, there’s a justifiable worry that their music’s integrity will become compromised. That’s not a worry I have with Big K.R.I.T. The Mississippi standout appears to be sticking by his guns and continuing the sound that got him to the big dance in the first place. All the more impressive that he’s been doing this on Def Jam, a label in recent years that has a shaky track record with its artists.

Termanology is using this loaded posse cut to announce his latest mixtape, Cameo King II. The project drops on May 24 and features appearances from Freddie Gibbs, Havoc, Planet Asia, M.O.P., REKS, Inspectah Deck, Royce da 5’9 and Mac Miller. This joint addresses the question of authenticity with artist images and how they approach their music. Everyone comes correct and Termanology handles the production himself. Those who prefer a physical copy of Cameo King II can make their purchase on June 7.

“Most things that are politically right are morally wrong…”
Rice University recently held a roundtable Hip-Hop discussion on the topics of ethics, politics, religion and Hip-Hop’s future. The panel had diverse representation from Lupe Fiasco, Malice of the Clipse, Bun B, Trae the Truth and Talib Kweli. Bun B has been teaching a Hip-Hop & Religion class at Rice University for the past year. Hopefully more Hip-Hop elders will make that transition into academia.

“Once you speak my name/ I speak hot flames…”
Who says southern rappers can’t rock over boom-bap? Houston’s Khaleel is one of DJ Premier’s new artists, and was featured prominently on last month’s Year Round Records compilation Get Used to Us. The unfinished video for this song leaked a few days ago, much to the chagrin of Premier. Now with all the bells and whistles in place, including a special Bun B cameo, Premier is now ready to drop the clip. The album can be purchased through iTunes.
“Due to a staff error, the new video for Khaleel’s “Hot Flames” which appears on my new LP, DJ Premier Presents-Year Round Records: Get Used To Us, has been yapped by all of the Internet yappers and I had just been reviewing the final edit of the video—but now its out there without the proper setup… Khaleel’s upcoming LP will be entitled Already and its gonna be another hot one—as all of my work is.
Shout out to my publicist Matt Conaway who has been tasked with helping me do damage control and is sending out the proper link to view Khaleel’s video while I prepare to drop LP after LP in 2011!
Year Round Records is that deal!”
