Kung Foo Grip

Future Talk

These dudes need to be heard to be believed, but it's like being sent back to the great, grim days of Black Moon, Channel Live and Mobb Deep.  Add to that just the right amount of fresh, new school elements.  They're sick, and their recent mention in XXL is way more than warranted.  If you haven't yet checked them out then head over to to get their latest album for free!

For a Limited Time Only... The MC Type!

Have You Ever Seen A Man Play Bass Naked?

Until the release of the new MC Type joint "Bad Tattoos Vol 3",  everything he has to offer on bandcamp is pay what you want! (Free for all the poor folk.)  I got to see this Ballard emcee perform at the triple album release jam along with Griff J and Art Vandelay, and I have to say Type had the liveliest set.  Many, many shots were passed to the stage, clothes were exchanged with audience members, and while he serenaded his sister, his bass player got naked... umm, and the show almost got shut down.  If you get the chance to see him live, do whatever you can to do it.  And go listen to his music!

Illfightyou Tape


This free album dropped at midnight last night at Illfightyou's website after weeks and months of great anticipation over here at beetbak (and the rest of the world too, it seems).  Heavy, snotty, ignorant, ass-kicking, no bullshit rhymes and beats - sort of the much-needed opposite of the Town's predominant vibe right now.  I'm sure it will be considered a favorite on many a year-end top ten list.  So head on over to their website to listen and dl already!
