In December, London's own Jux Cain and JR Fillion released their collaborative EP titled Story Up Bud, bringing back the art form of story telling with some raw hip-hop. The bonus track off Story Up Bud, "Life's a Bitch" featuring BeefWelli is one that catches that whole essence into one song. Raw, powerful lyrics. A insane beat with some cuts and samples produced by Joey Black and some visuals that give the song even more realness. I highly advise checking out JR Fillion and Jux Cain's latest project Story Up Bud if you haven't yet, this is only one of many. Take in "Life's a Bitch" featuring BeefWelli and see for yourself.
It may have knocked a couple years off our lives waiting for it, but Elzhi's ELmatic mixtape is finally here and it's immaculate. For those unfamiliar with the just of this project, it is comprised of classic productions from Nas's classic Illmatic that have been twisted and rearranged into live re-interpretations at the helm of the Will Sessions, the funky-ass beat gurus behind Detroit's other hot item at this moment, Black Milk. Particularly with Elzhi's vox pouring over it, the tape is very very good as it is, but you and I are still both glad to hear there is also an instrumental release on its way via fatbeats! Get on this. [audio:https://thecomeupshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/07-Lifes-A-Bitch_Feat.-Royce-da-59-and-Stokley-Williams-of-Mint-Condition-Prod-Will-Sessions.mp3|titles=07 Lifes A Bitch_Feat.
