Calski is back at it with some more of that rawness, this time teaming up with Dialectrix on a new joint titled ‘I Know’. The beat bangs hard like a flyscreen in a cyclone and both Cal and D-Trix come correct with tight flows and witty wordplay to match. ‘I Know’ is available for free download from his soundcloud but capped at 100 dl’s so don’t sleep.
New track we did. Taken from Realizm’s – Scribe of the Occult
DJ Sammy B-Side has meticulously gone through the ever growing High Focus crates and carefully pulled out a delicately balanced selection of bangers and gems from the HF arsenal for your listening pleasure. Stream or download.
The sodden cunt of a man, Billionaire Bunk$ is back like herpes from a weekend with a cracker in Bali. After the somewhat success of Booze Bastards, he come’s through stroking the felt and pissing on cunts Nikes as one would expect. I’m not sure what’s better here, the adlibs at the front and back of the track or the witty puns laced over a classic break. Either way, I’m looking forward to hearing more from this dribble dick. Smart with the word play, he kind of reminds me of our own Sean Price in a way. Top stuff Bunks!
A few years back the Pete Rock tweeted a co-sign for a young dude out the North Cakalak going by the name of Lute, rapping over one of Pete Rocks beats jacked for his mixtape, West1996. I dig the laid back flow.
Haven’t really been checking much since but other than his crews mixtape ‘704’ there’s been a big bit of fuck all, which is a shame.
I’ll leave you with the mixtape that created a buzz. Worth a look incase you missed it.
Check the clip from his Forever FC crew titled, ‘Warning’
I remember years back receiving a textual transmission from my friend and esteemed colleague Proof telling me to check out this blog he’d just discovered called Daily Mathematics. I’d never heard about the blog of which he spoke and in the following text he proceeded to tell me that it was written by a hip hop music attorney and lawyer who wrote these amazing stories about his time within the industry, needless to say i was intrigued. That evening i went to my future wife’s computer and typed Daily Mathematics into its search engine and spent the remainder of the evening glued to the incredible and often hilarious stories on the screen. I stuck with Daily Math for a while, Combat’s insider tales about everyone from Dame Dash to Easy Moe Bee had me hooked, his stories were crack for a confessed rap addict such as myself.
I’ll try not to sound like a Wikipedia entry here but Combat Jack was born Reggie Osse a native New Yorker (Brooklyn to be exact) of Haitian decent. After receiving degree’s from Cornell and Georgetown Law he interned at Def Jam in 1989 where he’d work sample clearances for 3rd Bass’ Cactus Album. From there his credits are endless, after brokering Jay-Z’s first ever deal with Payday Records he’d go on to work with everyone from Bad Boy and Rockerfella to Capone-N-Noreaga and RA The Rugged Man. He also worked as a managing editor at The Source for a minute as well as a very brief stint with MTV, he was hugely involved behind the scenes of a lot of the most popular records of the 90’s. He retired from the music industry unsatisfied and disheartened by its constant fuckery in the early 2000’s.
He started blogging about his time within the industry under the alias of Combat Jack following his retirement and fast gained a following in hip hop blogging’s formative years of 05/06, translating that following on to an online radio show and then on to a prominent hip hop podcast. His broadcast alongside team member and prominent NY sneakerhead Premium Pete is going from strength to strength and has been a weekly must listen for a few years now. The show is an intrinsic look at hip hop and New York culture and i consider it one of the most important documentations we have of hip hop at this point in time. I was a little concerned when Dallas Penn retired from the team last year but the show didn’t miss a beat and has only gotten better in my books.
The guest list over the years is endless, if they were involved in East Coast hip hop anytime from the mid 80’s on then they’ve probably been on the Combat Jack podcast. Recent episodes with Lord Finesse, Freddie Foxxx, Jermaine Dupri, Chuck D, Kane, Cormega and Ice-T have been stellar, jam packed with history, stories and a literal tonne of amazing content. Not to mention episodes with Clark Kent, Bobbito Garcia, photographer Glen Friedman, Spike Lee, the infamous first Dame Dash episode and the episode where Havoc of Mobb Deep said he wrote those tweets about his man Prodigy and that a publicist told him to say he left his phone at a gas station, he continues on essentially calling P a bitch.
No matter how little i know about some of the guests i’m constantly intrigued and usually enthralled by most of the discussions. Like it, follow it, rate it, stream it, listen to it and enjoy it. Go back through the archives and discover something about someone you might know nothing about. The Combat Jack Show is available over at iTunes and Soundcloud and also streams off their website below.
