This week our staff has chosen another 8 from October 21 – October 27.Â This weekâ€™s list is led by singles from Top 8 Singles: October 21 – October 27 ft. Five Steez & Mordecai, Ras Kass & LostPoet x Kin Cee x Mr. Ripley.
Ras Kass ft. Big Twinz & GOD Father â€“ SOI3 (prod. by Apollo Brown)
Ras Kass has been one of the best lyricists since entering the Hip Hop game in 1994. This fall, Ras is scheduled to release SOI2.Â Ras KassÂ has been quoted as saying that â€˜Soul On Iceâ€™ is nearly finished. On this new single â€˜SOI3â€˜ connects with producer Apollo Brown and enlists the services ofÂ Big TwinzÂ andÂ God Father.
Five Steez & Mordecai â€“ Work
Kingston, Jamaicaâ€™s emcee-producer duoÂ Five SteezÂ andÂ MordecaiÂ are putting all doubters to shame with a new single titled Work, the second offering from their upcoming album,Â Love N Art.
Over hypnotic piano keys and a military style drum pattern cooked up by Mordecai, Five Steez addresses contemporaries and critics seeking to discredit him. He goes on expressing his belief in self and love for music, then returns to his verbal onslaught against his detractors who remain nameless.
LostPoet x Kin Cee x Mr. Ripley â€“ Nod Ya Head
LostPoet, Kin Cee and Mr. Ripley come together for this 90â€™s type record titled â€˜Nod Ya Headâ€™. Three artists are about breaking bread with the whole team. Some people are not hard-wired like this but this is what we remember of the â€œgolden eraâ€ of Hip Hop.
