Some of you haven't heard of him but he's been rapping for a minute. Skyzoo is a rapper from Bed Stuy in New York. He's worked with producers Jay Dilla and 9th Wonder. Check him out he's put out a lot of mixtapes and 3 albums. The best mixtape he had by far was "Corner Store Classic" and his best album was released last year "The Salvation". New York has to many emcees to even count.


Pete Rock - One Of The Best.

I feel like doing a different type of post today so im going to do a featured artist post but on a producer. Yes one of my favs not DJ premier but PETE ROCK. He is an American record producer, DJ and rapper which shows he can do a lot of things. Pete Rock started with the legendary Marley Marl as a DJ when he was 17 in the late 80s. He was getting big at a early age and then started producing for big names. "Down With the King" for Run-DMC, and "The World Is Yours" for Nas, as well remixing singles for Jeru The Damaja ("You Can't Stop The Prophet"), Public Enemy ("Shut 'em Down"), and The Notorious B.I.G. ("Juicy" - the original of which was allegedly based on Rock's own demo).

Pete Rock & C. L. Smooth "They Reminisce Over You"

Pete Rock joined "Pete Rock & CL Smooth" which was a duo group of them two and Pete Rock was the DJ. They made three which drop early in the 90s. Mecca and the Soul Brother was there secodn album which is my fav and I think there best. But after they stop the duo group he was still DJin ith Marley Marl on the radio etc. He made his first album called Soul Survivor whcih he DJ and Rap on. It had many guest on it the likes of Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Black Thought, Common, Big Pun, Common etc. The album is great and its got many great artist on it as well. Pete Rock drop an instrumental album which had like 40 tracks on. He made Hip Hop Underground Soul Classics in 03 whcih had artist like Q-Tip etc.

Pte Rock sings in the chorus and produces the track.

Soul Survivor II hit the stores in 2004 whcih is a classic I think from Pete Rock he done a great job with this album and got greta artist on it. Pete Rock is also the older brother and younger cousin, respectively, of rappers Grap Luva and Heavy D. Pete Rock oversaw the production of Jay Stay Paid, a posthumous album by the producer J Dilla, released June 2, 2009 on Nature Sounds. Which the late J Dilla idol was Pete Rock. To me Pete Rock is key factor in hiphop and one of th best producers of all time with premier, j dilla, rza etc.

Pete Rock best beats on a youtube video its dope.




Jay Z and Dr Dre in the studio together hopefully the track will drop soon.

T.I is back we all know but I have to say THE KING IS BACK PEOPLE. T.I. gave his first interview since his release from jail last December with Trapmuzik.

Drake - Thank Me Late UPDATE.

Young Money rapper Drake's Thank Me Later album has finally received a release date and will reportedly land in retail stores this May. It's official. The most anticipated hip-hop album of the year finally has a release date. Drake's debut Thank Me Later will arrive on May 25, Rap-Up.com has learned. Drake will travel across the country performing material from the album on his first headlining trek, "The Away From Home Tour," kicking off April 9 at Penn State University, and wrapping in Houston on May 20, a few days before the record's release

The rapper recently talked about Jay-Z's "Light It Up" guest spot that will be featured on the album. "It's just me and Jay both rapping on it for an extended period of time," Drake said in an interview. "It's real rap. It's real rap. I do sing on it, but it's just on the hook -- but it's rap. It's great. The perspective, the dynamic on the track -- it's me and Jay's relationship on the song, basically. When you hear it, people will be like, 'Oh man.' That's how we are -- just the two. He definitely has guided me a lot, as far as his words and his advice. We have a real funny rapport. I always enjoy my conversations with Jay. It's good

Rolling Stone initially reported that the project would be released on an unknown date in May. Drake's LP is a reflection of how the upstart Toronto MC has become hip-hop's new leading man. "I tried to capture every great moment I've had in the last year," he says. "It's triumphant." To wit: He raps about a presumed love affair with Rihanna and his friendship with mentor Lil Wayne on "Fireworks." Drake mostly eschewed big names in favor of home-town producers (Boi-1da, Noah "40" Shebib) and a collaboration with New York indie rockers Francis and the Lights. "It's gonna be interesting," he says. "I hope it's pleasing to the ear."

I know this is mostly copy from hiphop websites but going to be a great album and there was know need for me to chance any parts. I cant wait for this. Peace people.
