Pacewon & Mr. Green feat. Chris Rivers – Massacre [Audio]

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from them, but the much-heralded duo of Pacewon and Mr. Green are back at it with “Massacre”, a bruising new single featuring Bronx spitter Chris Rivers (Big Pun’s son). After dropping two acclaimed releases—2008’s “The Only Color That Matters is Green” and 2012’s ‘The Only Number That Matters is Won’—the New Jersey-hailing emcee and producer are back together and sounding as good as ever. And they couldn’t have picked a better title for their new track than “Massacre”, because it’s a well-placed punch to the throat of any wack artists listening to it. Pacewon leads the charge over the slapping production from Mr. Green, who blends and manipulates layers of samples on top of one another. It’s a fitting setting for his tag-team partner, who raps about choking trash rappers and hanging them from his rear-view. The same goes for Rivers, who bodies the beat with references to Super Smash Bros. and King Arthur in addition to a variety of flows. What “Massacre” boils down to is a raw Hip-Hop showcase, with Pace and Green demonstrating that their chemistry is alive and well. If you’d like to support, “Massacre” is now available through the digital outlet of your choice via Raw Poetix Records.

Mr. Green feat. Blacastan – Power [Video]

The ridiculously talented Mr. Green is behind the boards and sitting in the director’s chair for his gritty new single, “Power,” off the upcoming Raw Poetix compilation, ‘Global Connection Vol. 2.’ The track also boasts some sharp visuals starring Connecticut rap bully Blacastan, who goes all the way in on this Boom bap slapper. Backed by the neck-breaking instrumental, Blacastan drops a slew of run-it-back quotables (for example: “In the hood I’m everywhere, like images of Jesus/ Reflections of Moses movin’ in slaves’ clothing”) while commanding the camera’s attention. And Mr. Green is right on point with his direction, capturing the energy of his rapping partner’s bars before handing the footage over Shane McLellan to provide the psychedelic finishing touches. The aforementioned international connection is brought by Denmark-based turntablist DJ FMD, who kills it on the track’s hook and outro. Fittingly, “Power” sets the tone for the compilation, which features the likes of PaceWon, Phil The Agony, Kool G. Rap, Chris Rivers, and Planet Asia. While you can watch the “Power” video now, the ‘Global Connection Vol. 2’ compilation is set to drop September 20th, via Raw Poetix Records.

Mr. Green feat. Benefit – The Original [Video]

“This video was shot when Benefit was visiting NYC for the first official Live from the Streets album release party. We didn’t really have a plan but we knew Ben was only here for a couple days so we got busy and shot as much as we could. In addition to this video we also filmed a video for “if i don’t go to hell” including cameos from the wonderful Janice. That video will come out down the road as a part of the ongoing Live from the Streets saga. I honestly don’t know what the future holds for the show but I know we’ve created something truly special with LFTS and I know that we aren’t even close to finished. This video is special to me because it features some of the best moments in the Live from the Streets show over the last couple years along with a couple glimpses into future episodes (like Sean Price and Odb). It’s also special because it’s my first time rhyming on a real song. Shoutout to the legendary Benefit for hearing me rhyme and then convincing me to jump on a real song. If enough people ask me to I might put out more rhymes… we will see.”

Mr. Green’s Sean Price Tribute [Stream]

“When I woke up this morning I started throwing Sean P acapellas on some of my newest beats and came up with this little tribute mix. Then Duck Down James hooked me up with some footage of P and I added a little nyc street footage I shot. I filmed and edited the whole thing myself so it’s a little rough but I wanted to make something for Sean. Also, funds are being raised to directly assist Sean Price’s family moving forward, if you can afford it, please click this link and make a contribution. He has a mixtape dropping August 21st. I heard it, it’s dope. Make sure you buy a copy of that because proceeds from the album will go directly to his family as well.” – Green Hit the jump for the visual.

Mr. Green feat. Raz Fresco – Step Into The Booth [Video]

“Filmed in Taos New Mexico, I got to visit an ancient pueblo belonging to a Tiwa-speaking Native American tribe of Puebloan people. It’s a very interesting place, it’s estimated that it was built between the years 1000-1450. When you’re there it feels like you are in a different time period completely. After the Pueblo, I headed over to Andrea M Pacheco’s house so she could play me some Mariachi music. She put on a dope performance and explained a bit about the instruments. Her day job is to sell religious artifacts so there were all kinds of cool pictures and pieces around. Back in NYC, I made a beat out of Andrea’s Guitaron and had Raz Fresco come through. When Raz came over we hung out for a while, he smoked a few backwoods, and then kicked a dope verse. Be on the lookout for his album ‘Pablo Frescobar’, out July 1.” – Mr. Green Mr. Green’s dope “Live from the Streets” album is out now.

Mr. Green: Live From The Streets (feat. KG of ATR) [Video]

For this episode we linked up with KG, an incredible reggae artist we met out in the park in Brooklyn. This one is crazy because we recorded the whole song outdoors, just a few minutes after meeting each other. What happened is Sam, the co-creator and OG director of the show, and his girlfriend Ally were walking through the park one day when they heard some amazing singing coming from a group of people hanging out by the lake. They walked over and found KG and his crew ATR (Above the Rest) free-styling. Everyone exchanged numbers and then a few days later Sam brought me down there with some beats. I played KG just one track off my beats album “one day EP” and almost immediately he started singing into the mic “… I was born to be king black…” I’m proud of this one because, like most of our tracks, it happened in the most organic way possible. But not only, we recorded the whole thing outside on the side of a lake and now they play it the radio (on Sirium XM) and on TV (on MTV Jams)… crazy. The track is called “Born to Be King” and you can get it on the first official “Live from the Streets” album out now on Duck Down Records feat. Freddie Gibbs, Matisyahu,KRS One, Malik B, Vinnie Paz, Bodega Bamz and many more.
