Harlem’s Kyle Rapps released his debut mixtape, “SUB” this week (June 18th). Sponsored by streetbrand Miska and produced entirely by LA’s Belief, “SUB” features appearances by Action Bronson, Murs, MFN eXquire and The Inner City Kids’ Aaron Cohen and Spaceman. Check out the mixtape which the artist describes as “post-apocalypse boom bap shit.”
For many of us casanova’s it’s not unusual to forget the name of someone we may have ‘had relations with’ at one point or another. For New Jeru’s ABGOHARD of The Inner City Kids (Aaron Cohen et al.), his problem is a bit more broad (no pun intended), as he often struggles with remembering the race of his inamorato. In this one minute plus clip, we learn three things about ABGOHARD 1) his need for Ginko Biloba (get that memory problem sorted homey) 2) that his most profound thoughts occur to him at the urinal.. and 3) that he may remind you of someone else. But don’t take my word for it, hit the jump and go see for yourself..
The unorthodox, ginger-bearded rhyme beast returns with a new video today, accompanied by two of his ICK (Inner City Kids) cronies Spaceman and ABGOHARD. The bass driven, stringy cut was produced by NDLDRP which can also be found off Aaron Cohen’s new “MURK” mixtape that dropped a few weeks back. You’ll find he and his team strolling around Brooklyn with a several guest appearances from Mishka’s own Michael Cohn and esteemed NYC photographer Brook Bobbins who also directed this video.
The ubiquitous Kosha Dillz (who starred in one of this year’s BET Warm-Up cyphers alongside DJ Premier, Core Masson and ODB’s son, Boy Jones) details his own dreams and nightmares on “It Was All a Dream,” produced by Tunisia’s Balti (Baltiroshima). Both Inspired by and borrowing the classic quotable from the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy” (for both the hook and the title), the song also concludes with similarly themed audio footage taken from an interview with the late Biggie. You can catch Kosha performing this Friday (11/16) at Brooklyn’s Littlefield NYC, at The Rich + The Ratchet artist showcase featuring Kool AD, The Under Achievers, Aaron Cohen and more.
