Back in January, Torae released his Entitled album. One of the focal points to that self-released LP was “Get Down.” First unveiled almost a year ago, the song is the latest run-in the Brooklyn, New York MC had with producer Pete Rock. A lot was at play in the beat, a great way for the MC/radio host/actor to slam his day-in-the-life bars, as he has for more than a decade.

In the dog days of summer, it’s the perfect time for the remix. Here, Torae recruits The LOX’s Styles P and State Property’s Freeway to call back to the mid-2000s feel that aligns with his message in the music. Torae redid his whole verse to update fans on his career (appearing in VH1’s The Breaks), allude to the importance of P.R. remixes, and mention DJ Clue and LOX tapes of old. Fans looking for exciting music in Rap get this remix, with three MCs out to show their best stuff on one of Pete’s best beats.

Alan the Chemist and Roc Marciano have been frequent collaborators since the latter dropped his 2010 debut album, Marcberg. The Hempstead, New York MC is now the latest to hop on Alchemist’s Craft Singles series, in which the famed producer drops a loosie featuring different rappers with each installment. Thus far, he’s dropped joints with a list of varying talent including ScHoolboy Q, MC Eiht & Spice One, Blu, Migos and Mac Miller. But there’s an undeniable symbiosis in ALC’s work with Roc that continues to inspire high-quality Hip-Hop, and today’s release is no exception.

Prodigy & AlcKhemist Unlock Mystical Jewels For Those Who Can Crack The Code (Audio)

“All For It” pits the longtime duo right in the pocket where they’ve found much success. The production is plush in parts and less adorned in others, and features a piano riff that haunts in the best kind of way. Rapping about “putting a new hole in your culo,” Roc Marci makes the grim pleasurable and with an unimposing hook, there’s no frilly fanfare to take away from the bars.

“All For It” – and all of Alchemist’s Craft Singles releases – are available for sale in 45-inch vinyl format from his website. This particular collab is available for pre-order ahead of its September 23 arrival.

Rapper Big Pooh and Detroit producer Apollo Brown have announced they will collaborate on a new EP, appropriately titled Words Paint Pictures.

Dropping March 24th via Mello Music Group, the project is set to feature the likes of Ras Kass, Blakk Soul, Marv Won, L’Orange, ForeverFC’s Lute and more.

Today, the duo liberate the EP’s lead single, “Stop,” a powerful track that speaks on police profiling and the hardships of growing up black in America. Speaking with XXL, Pooh had the following to say:

“The crazy thing is, of course, a lot of the stuff that’s going on—Jordan Davis, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown—all this stuff has been going on. But I was sitting in the crib—it’s one of the last records I did for the EP—and I was watching the news, and there was a story from down in Columbia, South Carolina, which is like an hour and a half away from me. And this kid had just gotten off work and he got pulled over at a gas station. And when he got pulled over at the gas station he got out of the car and the cop said, ‘I want to see your license.’ It was in the car, so [the kid] went to reach for it in the car and the cop fired off one. He didn’t kill him but he injured him, he shot him in the leg. And right after that I went out, I went driving around and I got pulled over that night. And that was going through my mind the other time: All these black youth getting killed by police officers, and I get pulled over the night after I watched a man get shot at the gas station. So that was like the longest, quickest police stop I’ve ever had in my life.

Two days later when I got home I was like, ‘I gotta write about this.’ You know, as a black man, it used to be the joke that you always tense up when a cop get behind you while you’re driving, but now it’s real, you know what I’m sayin’? That’s real now. So I definitely wanted to document it in some shape or form.

01 “Augmentation”
02 “Stop” f. Steve Roxx
03 “Eyes Wide Open” f. Ras Kass
04 “Promise Land”
05 “How I Move” f. Blakk Soul
06 “Candlelight” f. Marv Won
07 “Kings” f. Jalen Santoy, Novej & Lute
08 “Augmentation” (L’Orange Remix)
09 “Promise Land” (Apollo Brown Remix)
