The bad guys of battle rap are back. DOT MOB! The EZ Man (Murda Mook), Mr. Dat N*gga Dead (T-rex), and Real Deal Dutch Brown recently dropped their mixtape Fu*k The Politics. The trio recruited DJ WhooKid who couldn’t be found at the time for the recording session. Rex and Dutch ended up mimicking DJ WhooKid’s famous intro, but failing after each attempt. Lol. Mook eventually steps in and has to call Whookid himself to find out what’s going on. Due to some unknown events; Whookid is laying low in Iowa somewhere and assures Dot Mob he has their back. After Whookid’s intro all jokes are off and its just bars, hip hop, and real rap.

Mook, Rex, and Dutch start off by killing their title track, Fu*k The Politics, which features the three over Raekwon’s Incarcerated Scarfaces. Most of you have never heard of Dutch Brown, but after hearing this verse its easy to see how he affiliates with the mob. Dutch is very punchline heavy and dope; surprised I never heard of him before.

Dot Mob goes on to annihilate the Gangstarr’s Mass Appeal beat. Guru would be proud. The Neva Told on Nobody video makes the song even better. Its easy to see Dot Mob is showing the world New York hip hop is far from dead and this is what the game has been missing.

The Dot Mob Trifecta continue to jack beats from Total “Tell Me What You Want” to Junior MAFIA’s “1,2 Ya’ll”. This mixtape is crazy. The bars and punchlines are ill. 100% New York vintage hiphop reminiscent of the late 90’s, early 2000’s. If this is what we got as a mixtape; then the album is going to have the underground and streets going crazy. Voices is already getting a buzz over the net.


If Mook, Rex, and Dutch read this, I NEED A FU*K THE SYSTEM shirt.

Mickey Factz: Y-3 review

You probably asking #Y I’m writing about Mickey Factz? My reply #Ynot!

Mause comes back to us with latest project, Y-3. The Bronx bomber begins this album/mixtape with a snippet of $4.14, which can be found of 740 Park Ave., and turns into 4:14 AM. I’ve always loved the fact that Factz never followed what the industry did; the industry followed what Mickey factz did, and is why I’m a big fan. Listening to Mickey, you almost feel as if you know the man and his story.

“My pops woke me up and told me I’m the illest out, It’s crazy ’cause these is dreams I be spittin’ out, 4:14 in the morning pouring my spirit out, Last year those 3 numbers was in the kid account” -4:14am

Mickey takes on a journey with him being broke to financially able while expressing his pain from nonbelievers claiming their right to his success. Not too many artist can remain lyrically inclined while telling a story. Its truly a lost art in hip-hop nowadays. The gift of being able to write with empathy connects you to Y-3 from the jump. Songs like 4:14am andMause: An American Tale take you down memory lane with the Bronx emcee with out setting foot in NYC.

Mickey goes on Syzygy, lyrically exercising his prowess over the “Run” instrumental by Jadakiss and Ghostface Killah. If you love bars, metaphors, and wordplay? Then Pendulum is the song for you. Mause enlists the help of URL’s “KINGPEN” Chilla Jones and Emilio Rojas. Can’t forget how I was when I heard Hayworth with Elzhi and Cyhi The Prince. This song will make you respect Mickey Factz as a lyricist, wordsmith, and emcee. Trying to not get out-shined by those two is a task in itself, keeping up with them shows Mickey is known through the industry for being superb with the pen.

Every song, you hear Mickey Factz exhibit MC wizadry. Y-3 is too good to be considered a mixtape, its an album. Nothing short of a classic with lost of replay value. Songs like of Under God, 8 bit dreams, and Room 306 stand out on the mixtape. I keep wanting to say album because that’s what I consider it. If you love hip hop, do yourself and treat yourself to Y-3. Mark my word; you won’t be disappointed.

Schoolboy Q- Groovy Tony

TDE’s own, Schoolboy Q, comes and drops the first single “Groovy Tony” off his new album in a very awesome video. In the video, Groovy Tony aka Blankface is portrayed as  figure with shades and a bucket hat; similar to those worn by Q. The video is set around a junkyard where you find a man trapped beneath a digger, bodies in the jaws of a crane, a dude hanging from a warehouse ceiling inside a shipping container in which Schoolboy Q appears to live. Check the video out and let us know what you think about Groovy Tony.
