Kane, KassCrook, Kwamizzle “The _____ Experiment” [Mixtape]

Partake in a study in hip hop conducted by the likes of Kwamizzle, Kane, and KassCrook!

From Kwamizzle’s DunDemWorld – Hip Hop Blog!

Some said it couldn’t be done. Others said it shouldn’t be done. Well, we did it anyway. “The _____ Experiment” put together by Kane, KassCrook, and Kwamizzle is a audio-social test. Its a test that combines: Hip Hop, rap, poetry, and social commentary into a compilation of dynamic imagery.

From the start of the album, “The_Exp” grabs the listener and exclaims “You may want to sit down first…” with spoken word from Poet (featured throughout the album). The _____ Intro perfectly explains the reason for this musical study, but if you don’t get the picture from that all hope isn’t completely lost. The 3 scientists revisit these main topics of discussion all through the album while still keeping listeners entertained with radio-friendly songs like: We Gone, Maintain Control, and By Any Means. 2 of which feature the vocalist DeSean Moore on the hook/chorus. Unhappy Home, Boondocks Theory, 1 Train Cypher, and Sworn Testimony keep the project well rounded and serve as pivotal transitions in the overall story line.

Features on this project come from HGH’s Intell Hazefield and Kwamizzle, DeSean Moore, Vay Cool of FiF, and also Concrete Kid. Don’t pass on this without giving it an unbiased listen. ~DunDemWorld

AWAR – Keep Risin’ (Produced by Nottz) [Video]

AWAR’s “Keep Risin’” is a universal anthem for the everyday hustle. I had to post this video because I can definitely connect to these lyrics at this point in my life with the studio, the blogs, the businesses, etc.

“…we’re still grinding; got goals to achieve, the drama, the karma, the life I lead…”
