A.T.G. ft. 518 United (Directed by Intell Hazefield)

9 lyricists and a beatboxer on an original beat, directed by Intell Hazefield… nuff said.

From JPlus’ Youtube

Background Info:

Earlier this year, Albany based rap group, Against The Grain, reached out to some of the best writers, rappers, producers, videographers and directors from upstate New York to start an alliance that would ultimately spawn a movement. The end result of which was “You Ought To Know” … a collaborative project which features 10 of the most talented MC’s that the east cost has to offer. The song was recorded in downtown Albany on the very day that Hurricane Irene ravaged the North East. The storm ended up being fitting backdrop for a record that would ultimately change the rules of engagement surrounding hip-hop in the Capital District. The culture of hate and animosity that once plagued the local underground scene has subsequently been replaced with one of unity and camaraderie. And while the competitive spirit of hip-hop lives on, it is now amplified by support and enthusiasm from the diverse MC’s comprising the movement, and the fans that support them. We are 518 United.

“You Ought To Know” by Masai, LR, Knowle’ge, JPlus, B Way, Jaja Gibore, Mike Arson, KwamIzzle, Capitol P, MC Graffiti.

Jaja Gibore – No Exit (Hades) ft. Cocoa G&R

Jaja Gibore No Exit

Inspired by the French play by Jean-Paul Sartre, “No Exit (Hades)” is the first single from Jaja Gibore’s “Mount Olympus: Home of the Gods.” Much like its inspiration, the song “No Exit” plays around with the idea that hell is not the traditional place of fire and brimstone that we often imagine, but we all are tortured with our own specific hell. Cocoa G&R lends a bed of silky vocals for the track and undeniable eye candy for the video.

Here it is. “No Exit (Hades)” Directed by Intell Hazefield.

Kane – Catch The Sun ft. Lyrical VanGogh and Jaja Gibore
