Add another emcee to the list of those who've freestyled over Jay Z's Magna Carta... Holy Grail standout track. Fresno, California emcee Fashawn just dropped "El Chapo Baby", riding over Timbaland and J-Roc's infectious Adrian Younge sample. Fashawn has long been a favourite emcee of mine, and it's been awhile since we've heard anything new from him, so this marks a welcome return. Here's hoping we won't have to wait too much longer for The Ecology. For more on the California emcee, read our interview with him. Stream "El Chapo Baby" below.
Ooooohweeeee! Skyzoo just dropped "All Black Walls", the first track off his Penny Series Pt. 2. On "All Black Walls", Sky hops on (the recently hyphen-less) Jay Z's "Picasso Baby" instrumental, off his Magna Carta Holy Grail release. This was my favourite track off MCHG, and Skyzoo always comes correct, so it's super dope to see him spit over the Adrian Younge-sampled cut. True, Timbaland and J-Roc receive production credits on MCHG, but the original sample comes from Adrian Younge's Venice Dawn. Enough rambling, though. Stream and download "All Black Walls" below.
