E-Prosounds – Puzzle Textbook [Album Stream]

Posted on June 26, 2017

“Puzzle Textbook’s theme is about examining different aspects of our postmodern world and highlighting the positive and negatives while also shining a light on the prospects of new beginnings and reincarnations.”—E-Prosounds on his new album. New York artist E-Prosounds’ latest effort, 'Puzzle Textbook,' is instantly captivating because of its organic, down-to-earth aesthetic. It’s just as accessible as it is challenging, thanks to E-Pro’s own Jazz-leaning, Boom bap production combined with his smooth, in-the-pocket rhyming. It’s the work of an artist who’s pushing himself to create his best project to date, while also reminding the world that NY rap runs deeper than you may think. E-Pro raps with a stream-of-consciousness approach that can be as engaging as the listener chooses. Given that his voice remains in a deeper monotone for most of the project, it’s easy to hear it as another instrument within his imaginative, looping beats. The 11 instrumentals on here are some of the finest that he’s produced to date, as they reveal his ability to experiment (“Intro”), tinker with jazz (“Memory Lane”), and craft ‘80s-leaning atmospheric Boom bap (“Right Now”). However, when you allow your ears to perk up and hear what he’s saying, there are puzzles to be solved by his lyrics. Like when he advises the listener to, “Clean out your skull, and sweep the garage/ Pop the shiraz, be like Russell Westbrook.” It’s practical life advice partially disguised by left-field abstractions—and to say it’s compelling would be an understatement. Other highlights in this vein include “Sunset” and lead single, “Circle.”

“Each song is an individual puzzle piece and they all come together to form a textbook,” E-Pro explains. “Together, they form a guide to destroy and rebuild society, appreciate the true nature of reality, and unite humanity in the beauty of it all.”

'Puzzle Textbook' follows 2016’s 'Joke Rogan' EP, which found the artist branching out and utilizing outside production from Rusty Mack (of Harry Fraud’s SRFSCHL crew) for the entire release. But on his latest effort, E-Pro is back to taking full control of his sound and demonstrating just how extremely talented he is as both a producer and emcee.

Justo & Showbiz – Black Ops [Album Stream]

Posted on June 25, 2017

Justo and D.I.T.C.'s Showbiz join forces on a new project called "Black Ops".

“I want people to experience the raw, unfiltered nature of the record and take this journey with me, back to a time when what you said actually mattered more than how much 808 is on your beat.”—Justo on his new project, 'Black Ops'. Despite dealing with turbulence in his life, Brooklyn rapper Justo pushed forward and is proud to release his latest project, ‘Black Ops.’ The 11-track effort arrives with two very specific goals: to pay homage to the greatest to ever do it, and to showcase that he’s not playing around. One listen reveals that he’s not only reached his goals but greatly exceeded them, in part because he was blessed with a batch of instrumentals from none other than D.I.T.C. heavyweight, Showbiz.´With the Bronx producer’s work as his canvas, Justo demonstrates time and time again his ability to blend mafioso-rap stylings with clever battle-rap bars. These show up on a number of Black Ops standouts, including the hard-hitting opening track 'The Council', the revealing 'Hood Politics', and Justo’s personal favorite track off the project, 'Can’t Take Y’all Seriously' .For the BK rapper, that song in particular exhibits his M.O. as an emcee. “The beat is insane, and the message is consistent with how I feel everyday about most of these so-called ‘industry artists,’” he explains. “I love any track of mine when I'm straight chewing up the beat, and that's one of them for sure.” ‘Black Ops’ also follows Justo’s tendency to collaborate with a single producer on a project, including 2015’s great 7-1-Ocho with Mexican beatsmith, Ocho Vazquez. The one-rapper, one-producer approach is one of Hip-Hop’s greatest traditions, and Justo honors it with vigor and tenacity here throughout every track. For Justo, flowing over Showbiz’s raw, gritty instrumentals came naturally, but it also opened the door for experimentation. He saw an opportunity to get loose and just straight-up spit, leaving listeners with one of the hardest rap releases to drop so far this year. The eleven track project is now available through all major digital outlets and streaming platforms, via Black Jewel Entertainment.
