Eminem finally pulled the trigger on the “KILLSHOT” heard around the world. Yesterday, the Detroit legend fired back at Machine Gun Kelly’s “Rap Devil”. The bars in this one are pretty crazy. I would comment more, but I want to hear more from you on this one. WE FINALLY GOT A REAL BATTLE YA’LL!
As a hiphop head, it’s always sad to lose someone who donated their time and passion to craft of lyricism. On September 7, 2018; Mac Miller was pronounced dead inside of his home.
As a hiphop head, it’s always sad to lose someone who donated their time and passion to craft of lyricism. On September 7, 2018; Mac Miller was pronounced dead inside of his home. There are reports stating Malcolm “Mac Miller” died of a drug overdose; there are other sources saying the house was swept clean of all drugs and paraphernalia, but that remains undetermined at this time. My condolences go out to the Miller family; they used the following statement regarding the tragedy.
“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26. He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”
In memory of the Macadelic one; enjoy his last performance of “Hurt Feelings”.
When you think of hip hop in North Carolina; a couple names come to mind. 9th Wonder, J. cole, Rapsody, Petey Pablo. Now there’s one more name you can add to the list of the Tar Heel state’s hip hop heavyhitters. Wilmington, Delaware born – Raleigh, North Carolina raised, Brizz Rawsteen, is known for his lyrical ability, unorthodox and aggressive style, and wordplay in battle rap. Brizz is back letting the world know he’s not just nice on stages slaying emcees, but also on tracks too. If you aren’t familiar with his previous project, RAWTAPE, then I assure RAWTHENTIC is a perfect piece of work that can get you familiar and make you join the infamous DARKSIDE.
Black Commission has a mafioso/old school vibe with a lot street knowledge. The song starts off as if he’s having a conversation with a DARKSIDE Soldier or henchmen, not at all. After several listens I realize Brizz in Capo mode talking to you, discussing operations and how business and street etiquette should be conducted. Pretty dope song overall.
Brizz chose to slow things down on For Dat Paper and give you an interesting perspective on how people change when money is involved. Jealousy breeds envy and greed in the hearts of corrupted people. It’s just a sad fact that everyone around you isn’t going to be happy with your success. This track is so vivid with details on actual emotions that it makes it hard to describe. Rawsteen captures those salty emotions of haters so well on this melodic track making it easy to listen and vibe to.
God Status is my favorite song on this whole project. Brizz lost it on this song. Concept. Bars. Metaphors. Perspective. All these factors made this song easy to gravitate to. Frizz proves his pen is just different and mentally can turn something abstract into an audio Picasso. The way Rawsteen incorporates biblical references to his subject matter is glorious. It may take several listens to catch everything. Very unique and interesting song that I recommend to someone who enjoys bars.
Brizz reaches out to fellow North Carolina emcee, Rain 910, for Godflows. The two lyricist do a great job going bar for bar on this song. If these two collaborate again, I’d be happy to see it. The rock ‘n’ roll beat is something emcees should lightly tread on nowadays, but this song is good. Shorter than what I expected, I was just getting into the joint.
For this to be a freshmen, independent venture for Brizz Rawsteen; I’m quite impressed. The rise and fall of the whole album kept me engaged and actively listening. The lead single, Better That Way, concludes the album and it’s easy to see the force is strong in the DARKSIDE head honcho. The bars on this song will easily command your attention as Brizz gives rides the beat like 10-speed Schwinn.
Go get that RAWTHENTIC by BRIZZ RAWSTEEN off iTunes, Google, Amazon, and Spotify. Make sure you check his classic battles on Youtube, just search the name and click one. The man won’t let you down, Shoutout to DARKSIDE, Cave Gang, Dot Mobb. Brizz Rawsteen got next, mark my word. And make sure you stay in tune with FTCHIPHOPNEWS, we trying to reach God Status.

Last year, 21 Savage, Metro Boomin, and Offset drove the world the crazy with the banger “Ric Flair Drip” off their collaborative album Without Warning. The trio is back in a epic visual to Offset’s solo track off the album featuring the styling’, profiling’, limousine ridin’, jet flyin’, kiss-stealin’, wheelin’ and dealin’ son of a gun, Ric Flair. Metro Boomin laced Offset with a beat that can possibly top ten in his whole catalog. Boomin through the alley-oop and Offset did a 360 windmill dunk with it on this track. Offset’s flow is truly incredible and displayed clearly in the second verse. The Migos member’s verse double-timing is unworldly and hypnotic. The West Coast bounce of this track and the way Offset rides this track makes it perfect to slap in your car at max volume. This song will definitely be played in every club around the country through the summer.
If you haven’t got Without Warning, go get it now.

Kaiju the Unconquerable (formerly known as Cashamill) is back and announcing that he will be releasing his single “Got 2” soon. The core fans of Kaiju will be happy to know this is only a taste of what they can expect off the Unconquerable one’s second installment of his visual album series, Leviathan’s Grin. Got 2 is a track that shows Kaiju’s lyrical agility, versatility, and creativity. The track brings you back to a great time in hip hop where Fubu reigned, jeans were baggy, and kids ran home from school to watch Rap City. Kaiju gives you bars, metaphors, and punchlines in a fashion that only he can on Got 2. The hook screams of DMX influence; it appears the spirit of No Limit emcee, Mystikal, takes over Kaiju while rhyming this noteworthy verse. This track has a very early 2000’s era feel to it making it nostagic. The darkness of the beat and Kaiju’s flows blend perfectly on this one. The track is filled with energy and hard rhymes that will catch listeners attention; whether it be if you’re listening to it on Beats by Dre or you bumping this in your car at max volume. I wish I could predict how the visual to Got 2 will be, but knowing Kaiju there’s no way to know how this will be presented to us when Leviathan’s Grin drops.
Kaiju will be releasing his second visual album titled, Leviathan’s Grin, as the follow-up to The David Stone project with consist of five songs with short films. This appetizer is sure to get fans ready for what will be a spectacular release to drive the internet wild. Fans of the Unconquerable one will be more than satisfied with Got 2 being the appetizer to the Leviathan’s Grin.
