Jokes On You by HEAVy Stop sleepin’ on this duo from Southside Jamaica Queens….or else. HEAVy (Casey Benjamin and Nicky Guiland) has a sound all their own and this one is off of their 2007 album JazzMoney so make sure ya’ll pick that up (don’t download). For more information on show dates etc., be sure to visit their myspace page.
If you’ve been living under a rock, you probably don’t know Mr. Forte was released from prison last year after getting off early from a 14 yr. stint (courtesy of George W. Bush….really). I was hesitant to listen to his new material post Fugees but I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a song off of his new EP. From reading his blog posts over at The Daily [...]
For those of you still sleeping on Sy, please wake the f*%k up. This singer/songwriter has been on the scene for a minute. Whether it be doing shows or writing for other artists, Sy is a force to be reckoned with.

By all means this isn’t a brand brand new video, but people are still sleeping on my girl from England. Pay attention to her unique voice and how her melodies penetrate the track like a…like a…well…(I’ll leave that one alone). Off of her debut album 19, she is one to watch for in the coming years.
If you haven’t heard of Joy yet, then you need to hit up Google after you watch this video (and read the rest of my blog of course). She is repping Berlin (yea, Berlin as in Germany). This one is off of her 2006 album Born & Raised, be sure to check out her myspace page for more. Stop sleepin’……..
I’m not sure how I missed this one. LA based J-Davey (from the Land of the Lost EP 2007) over a DIlla track, nuff said…..wake up people.
If you all don’t know her yet, let me help you get familiar. Cherokee is a dope artist that has been slept on for some time now. She will be releasing some new material very soon so wake the f@$k up. In the meantime, here is a video from her “Soul Parade” album featuring Mr. Benjamin to hold you over.
Yes, this album is over a year old but, some of you are still sleeping hard on this one. I’ll even go as far as saying that this album ranks up there with the Champion Sound – Jaylib album. Projects like this allow me to fall in love with hip hop music all over again. Listen up…..
