Rhyme Commission - Poetry In Motion

A few months ago, I was asked by Po' Safe and Big Fletch to drop a verse on a track called "Hall of Famers."  I myself kind of quit following a lot of sports after I really got into music.  (around 5th grade)  Back then the Kingdome was the reigning stadium in Seatown and the Sonics hadn't moved to OK.  So what was I to do?  I spat about what I knew, Seattle sports back then and honestly I really dug how the song turned out.  Little did I know they were working on a full length project and little did I know it'd be out so quickly. 

"Poetry In Motion" is Rhyme Commission's latest LP and it's chock full of Po' Safe's chopped beats and Fletch's rhymes.  When I put this in the deck it honestly put me in the mood to pull out my Dilated Peoples and D.I.T.C. records.  If you're a fan of some classic boom bap... do yourself a favor and support the duo.  

Illin' for Real

The homie, Big Fletch from The Rhyme Commission, took a pic of his copy of "The Chronic Tape," Basement Addicts style. That's what's up!!!

The Proforms - Shine (You Better)

If you haven't checked out The Proforms LP, "Atavism," you've been missing out on one of the most solid pieces of Boom Bap to be released recently.  Joe Harvey hit me off with their 2nd single, "Shine (You Better)", and you should all check the product.  

"With the success of their debut single "Get Ready" (reaching #3 on the Rapnetwork Record Breakers Chart and #6 on the RapAttackLives Chart) The ProForm
follow up single "Shine (You Better)" is hard hitting, gritty track that says "seize every opportunity you can to let your message be heard". So let The ProForms message be heard. Also don't forget to check out their video for the debut single "Get Ready" now on Youtube. Thank you."
