Talk about a violent lineup. Queens legend Kool G Rap has released the second single from his Return of the Don album, featuring street veterans Manolo Rose, Cormega and Sheek Louch over morose production that almost feels like a funeral procession.

“What motivates me to get in the studio is really being in that creative zone that you cannot just enter on demand” G Rap said. “It is more like an extremely powerful vibe that overcomes you. It’s triggered by hearing a particular track, or being inspired by another artistÍž or, a life experience that makes your mind and heart open up and lyrics just pour from your soul in the capacity of an avalanche. That’s what The Return Of The Don represents; an amalgamation of past, present and future and a tribute to some of my most favorite spitters worldwide; this is my salute to those artists.”

Return of the Don drops on June 2 and also features guest spots from Noreaga, Sean Price, Ransom, Fred the Godson, Raekwon, Willie the Kid, Termanology and Saigon.

“The race ain’t for the swift, but who can stand the test of time…”

Even in her 90s heyday, Heather B never truly got the credit she deserved. All these years later, the New Jersey native is still in elite form as evidenced by this new track “Dreamer.” Heather paints a desolate of a world devoid of loyalty and honor. And even with such a bleak landscape, Heather B holds onto the optimism of her dreams. Make sure to check out her upcoming mixtape Spit Queen, dropping in early 2012.

“You could make me your wife/By what would you wanna?/I got problems/So go on…”

On some level, all of us are reliving our pasts in the present. Our experiences, good and bad, make up the person we are today. What happens when those experiences include sexual abuse, a broken home, violence and abortions? Canadian emcee Eternia details the effects of a damaged psyche with a profound track entitled “To the Future.”

This is the third single off the Eternia & Moss album At Last. The song’s concept is a warning letter to her future husband about the type of wife he is pursuing. Instead of giving him the choice of whether to love her, she decides that’s she unworthy and instructs him to stay far away from her. For men who’ve dealt with damaged women, it’s a reminder of the inherent distrust, limited self-worth and fear they bring into relationships. For the women, it’s an illumination of how these bad experiences can destroy your future.

These are the type of songs we need from female emceess. Women see the world through difference lenses, and it’s unfortunate that many female artists would rather mimic their male counterparts than champion their unique voices.

The At Last album is available now through iTunes.
