Hannibal King – TrackBlasters Entertainment

Allen Poe & Teck-Zilla feat. Hannibal King – Incandescent [Audio]

A vintage look at life through laid back tone and sepia soundscapes, Lexington, Kentucky based MC Allen Poe and Nigerian born/Montreal based producer Teck Zilla team up for the new EP “Light Bulb Over My Head While I’m Thinking.” Littered across the beats are snippets from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s speech about the conscious mind, which is the entry point for Poe to touch off his various thoughts about…well, thought. From inner reflections on what to pass along to his children to musings about being socially awkward, the objective is to explore that caricature “light bulb” over one’s head while mid-thought. As philosophically charged as as it sounds, AP and Teck carry a light tone and relaxed vibe throughout. Featured artists are Nashville’s Jung Youth, Queens MC/Producer Hannibal King and Nigerian singer Maka.

Hannibal King – Never Die [Stream]

Over the years I’ve come to know Queens producer Hannibal King through his instrumental work for Bryant Dope, OnCue, El Prez and others. I stayed glued to his Villain Gone Bad beat tapes and vibe’d completely to Flowers For Pamela, but never did I see the day where I’d be introducing Hannibal King, the rapper. That is exactly what is going on though as the talented producer has picked up the mic and will be releasing his debut rap album, Floral Print, on September 2nd. To kick things off, we’re hit with the self-produced (of course) first single, “Never Die.” Take a listen below. – Shake via 2DBZ
