Willie Green: A Suite For Souled People EP


Brooklyn producer Willie Green teamed up with emcees Billy Woods, Curly Castro and Elucid to create this three track EP titled A Suite For Souled People. I feel like Willie did a great job explaining the inspiration and story behind this project, so I’ll let him speak for himself. The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri (as well as Staten Island, Beavercreek, Ohio, and Los Angeles)  have lifted a veil of comfortable ignorance across this country.  The murder of Michael Brown, resultant cover  up and egregious treatment of protesters has shown that the perception of Black people in America has  changed little since the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s.  Americans live in a country where the  oppressed are dehumanized and told to be quiet and gracious about their anger; and where the oppressors  are harbored by our government and rewarded by our peers.  Where the media warps facts to prove agendas  against citizens and digital voices rush to play devil’s advocate to conceal their own bias.  These are  terrifying statements and not exaggerations.  I’m no revolutionary.  But I am someone who wants to look his  children in the eyes and say when his country showed its worst, he did something. Trackist & link/stream are below. A Suite For Souled People by Willie Green Read More »

Your Old Droog: Secondhand Gunsmoke [prod by J-Zone & Sacha Jenkins]


It took a live show at Webster Hall in New York for the final conspiracy theorists to realize Your Old Droog is not Nas. Now that all doubt has been removed though, Droog is faced with the new question of whether that level of attention can continue without the intrigue. There’s no denying his hype skyrocketed simply due to the “Is this Nas?” talk. For what it’s worth, Droog is still dropping heat as he does on this new cut called “Secondhand Gunsmoke” produced by J-Zone & Sacha Jenkins. He even addresses the accusations of biting here too. Check it out. Read More »
