Da Struggle Continues

Powered By Black History: James Brown

Today, as always, we pay homage to Soul Brotha #1/The Godfather of Soul/Mr. Dynamite otherwise known as James Brown! He rose from the deepest of hard times to achieve historic stardom. He started in the Deep South trying to escape poverty. He was imprisoned for a supposed attempted auto theft and eventually ended up performing in jail. As fate would have it, he was discovered and assisted by Bobby Byrd […]

Da Underground Sound: Large Professor – Still Chisel

You ever notice time moves faster everyday?  So from what I'm hearing, Large Professor's 1st Class album will celebrate its 20th birthday this fall.  In addition, the Professor himself will turn 50 March 21st ... so a tribute is definitely in order! This album dropped in October of 2002.  By this time, Large Professor (AKA Large Pro, AKA Extra P) was already a widely-respected producer in the industry. His first […]

Album Reviews: For the FKN Love by Arrested Development

Arrested Development - For the FKN Love - !!!! This album is bangin!  Not to sound surprised, but historically Arrested Development (AD) usually projects more of a warm, melodic feel more based on the lyrics... the soul.  Now this album has all of the aforementioned, but its all based on some slappin' drums.  Speech, as always, is the alpha-leader of this multi-platinum, multiple Grammy-winning group.  He leads with his heart […]

Album Reviews: Lose No Time by J-Live

  J-Live - Lose No Time - !!!! Although this is more of an EP than a full-length album, J-Live (widely known as 'the rappers rapper') features his usual innovative wordplay and production that will keep this on repeat.  Its a project that sounds mature, yet still creative and new.  It incorporates classic elements such as DJ scratching and similes but again, still sounds current with modern references.  If he added […]

Album Reviews: Big Head Science by Casual

    Casual - Big Head Science - !!!!   Thinking back, there actually WERE some good things about 2020.  Once of which was the full-length album release from Casual - "Big Head Science".  After a few listens, I'm confident in saying this is Casual's best album since his landmark debut 1994's "Fear Itself".  It features fellow Hieroglyphic crew appearances from Phesto and Tajai as well as collaborations with Ghostface and […]

Da Underground Sound: Bay to LA Since 1991

California is a big, long state.  Its a unique place because the populations are split by hundreds of miles of relatively, uninhabited farm land in the middle of the state- which literally and figuratively divides Northern from Southern California.   Since 1977 I’ve moved back and forth between San Jose, San Diego, Fremont, San Rafael, Irvine and points in between.  One particular move stands out in my mind.  In 1991 […]
