The Hype Magazine got Fred The Godson to weigh in on a few things during a “Live Session” segment discussing not only his impending mixtape but also the process to creating a major solo release as an indie artist. Certain artists exhibit a lifelong respect for mother Hip-Hop and the teachings of the culture and Fred is one of those “REAL ONES” in this writer’s opinion. I’d been watching him since he began to make his mark and his movement is legit on all levels, he’s also catching on to the importance of getting first count on his own money which is why he’s held off on accepting several deal offers from the majors. Tune in!

Hip-Hop has always been about competition and winning lyrical battles in front of audiences and judges there to critique your barz…for money, brings another level of pressure. The emerging traveling rap battle league BullPen hosts initiations for lyricists who’ve made the cut and what a better ceremony than dropping the initiates into the arena!

The CLEAR winner of this battle is comedian/rapper Doby from Topeka, Kansas (785), who shuts the door on his opponent at the close of each verse by branding his surname.

In this battle, Doby epitomizes what MC’s are known for, how they earn their stripes, metaphors, punch lines and the ability to take what’s thrown at them and flip it to their advantage.

Witness the utter destruction of Doby’s opponent from the Bronx’s, Casuan…total mismatch.  Doby has successfully strutted his comedic stuff, in Hollywood at the Comedy Store on Sunset as part of a BET comedy search in which he made the semi-finals and has played rooms from Chicago to Atlanta with his popularity growing throughout the United States.

My mom always told me not to get into a word battle with a comedian. Casuan should have taken heed!

 

Score: Doby 3-0, creativity, witticism, stage presence and BARZ!

Montana-3851-1024x683After Pushing Back Fire In The Church Release to May 20th, the Torchbearer For Independent Hip-Hop Makes It Up to His Fans by Remixing the Country’s Number One Song

Montana Of 300 can rap over any beat and make it his own, no matter how famous the original track. The Chicago rapper frequently treats his legion of fans to remixes of popular industry hits, including Dej LoafsTry Me,” Lil Herb’s “Chiraq,” OT Genasis’s “Coco and an epic 8-minute freestyle over the beats from “White Iverson” and “Milly Rock.” Today, the self-proclaimed Rap God releases his biggest remix yet when he sinks his teeth into “Panda,” the surprise number one Billboard hit by teenaged Brooklyn rapper Desiigner. Montana attacks the Menace-produced beat with fervor, foregoing Desiigner’s percussive triplet flow in favor of his own machine gun bursts of lyrical genius: “Dressed up in all black like a panther/ I’m creepin’ I’m crawlin’ tarantula/ Bandana my face on the flag/trappers singin’ the national anthem.”

As an independent artist who built one of the most dedicated hip-hop fanbases from the ground up, Montana of 300‘s hustle can’t be knocked. The “Panda” remix follows the Chicago heavy-hitter’s XXL-debuted visual for “Here Now,” an introspective cut that finds Montana of 300 conversing with his conscience.In his annotation of the “Here Now” lyrics on Genius, Montana of 300 explained, “You get to listen in to what’s going on in my own mind… it’s kinda like me giving myself advice.” The reflective artist has been cementing his place in the game with an impressive stream of original video singles and remix videos which have accumulated 160M+ YouTube views. “He is nothing if not versatile,” HotNewHipHopnotes, while VIBE adds that “Montana rips relentless bars that separate him from his peers.” Montana of 300 previously released “WTS Now,” a track reflecting on the long journey he’s been on, from handing his CD’s out around Chicago to now having built a massive following as an independent hip-hop artist, as well as the sinister video for “Land Of The Dark,” premiered by Noisey alongside a lengthy interview.

Originally slated for release today, Montana Of 300’s latest album, Fire In The Church, a follow-up to his 2014 break-through project Cursed With a Blessing, drops in two weeks on May 20th.
