MP3: Illogic & Blockhead – “Anomoly”

MP3: Illogic & Blockhead – Anomoly

Illogic leaked a doozy of a song on his bandcamp as a Christmas gift.  The talented Columbus emcee has been working on an album called Capture the Sun with Aesoprock’s producer Blockhead for awhile now.
They have something like 30 songs done. So not every song could make the record.  So here we have “Anomoly”.  There is no release date or anything formal like that for Capture the Sun. As you could imagine, there are several labels interested in putting out this team-up of underground rap stalwarts.

Illogic did say Slug, LxE and Eyedea’s protege Kristoff Krane have features on Capture the Sun.

Illogic is offering 1/2 off albums from his back catalog on his bandcamp for the holidays as well.

Illogic & Walter Rocktight “Year 8076″

In this weeks The Other Paper there is an article on Walter Rocktight about Year 8076, an album he did with Illogic about 9 years ago but that never saw the light of day until this Tuesday.
Please do not sleep on this one. Year 8076 is a lost Columbus classic.
Makes you wonder how Columbus Hip Hop would be different if this would’ve come out on Rhymesayers Entertainment.
It didn’t and Walter Rockight is still one most slept on producers in Ohio.
Read the story behind the Year 8076 here.

MP3:Blueprint-Who EP


MP3:Blueprint-Who EP

Blueprint’s latest EP has him sampling the Who EP. So you Rock N Rollerz might light this one. The bulk of the content is Print discussing how he worked hard to get where he is at when other people had different ideas. Donewaiting readers might take note of track 3, “See Thru”, Print’s lo-fi song, where he shouts out DJ Przm, TNV and PHS. Illogic is on Track 5, “Pain” in which Print revisits the Teenage Wasteland sample he used on Illogic’s “1000 Whispers” and then Best Buy told him he wasn’t allowed to when Weightless reissued Celestial Clockwork through Raptivism.
There are three versions of Blueprint Who. This is the free version. To purchase or look for more info please check www.weightless.net.

Blueprint is currently on tour With Atmosphere, DJ Rare Groove, Budos and Grieves
