YouTube Preview Image

Higher Plane TV caught up with Columbus emcee the Catalyst at Summer Jam 614. The Q and A is insightful as the Catalyst talks about the growth of Columbus Hip Hop.

the Catalyst also drops a pretty dope verse.

MP3: Dregas feat eNPHANATE “MASH”

MP3: Dregas feat eNPHAN “Mash”

Our website has shown a lot of love for the Thought Collective aka Thought Set. We have covered the Catalyst, Envelope and NPayshint in the past. So I am stoked that eNPHANATE emailed me this song he did with Dregas for Dregas’s Nod Music.

If  you went to the Ghostface show at Skullys back in 2009, eNPHANATE is dude that murdered the crowd with a super-technical and alliterated accapella.

Besides rapping eNPHANATE also likes to argue with people on Twitter.

MP3:The Catalyst feat Np-“Swim Good 2.0”

MP3:Catalyst Feat. N.P. – Swim Good 2.0 (1)

Get Right host,The Catalyst and fellow Though Setter N.P. decided to rap over Frank Ocean’s “Swim Good”
The Catalyst’s verse is dope because while it intially sounds like a rap about sexual conquests, it is actually a bi-polar tale of self-loathing and self-importance.
N.P.’s verse vaguely hints at failures because of a poor choice. I don’t think he is actual talking about himself, though.

MP3:the Npayshint “The Run” & “Click Clack”

MP3:The Npayshint-The Runs (prod by A.U.)

MP3:The Npayshint-Click clack

Everytime I write about the Npayshint I point out that he was on Envelope’s song “Turn It Up”, and the Columbus emcee was also on RJD2’s last album. And of course the Catalyst mixtape.

Plus he played one of our Annivesarys with his crew Though Set.

A few months ago he gave us “Stretchin”, and these two songs are aptly titled “the Bench Press”.

I guess the point of these blurbs is get you to listen to the music. So listen to these songs, and then stop saying there aren’t enough good rappers in Columbus. Or at least continueing saying Npayshint reminds you of liking rap music.

And if you are in another city, if you think rappers should have deep voices, rhythm, and sound like other black people would’nt make of them, then listen to NPayshint.

MP3:Npayshint “Stretchin’ Freestyle”

MP3: NP-Stretchin’

NP from Thought Set twittered this little freestyle. Dude is dope.  You might remember him as the third guy on RJD2’s Ason’s Cycle. Anyway, this is just a warm-up that has the Columbus MC rappin’ over a looped up beat.

MP3-Greenhouse feat The Catalyst-Cold Out Here

MP3: Greenhouse Featuring The Catalyst-Cold Out Here

My favorite two hip hop songs so far this Winter  are Jay Electronica’s “Exhibit C”,  and this Greenhouse/Catalyst collab, ” Cold Out Here” from Greenhouse’s EP, Electric Purgatory. On “Cold Out Here” all three emcees bring sobering depictions of how harsh these times can be.
Print raps about how stifling the world is right now, especially with the economy still fucked. Illogic speaks on ignoring detractors. And the Catalyst confesses to being an intoxicated, combustable mixture of talent and self-destructive tendencies in the midst of indifference.
Don’t sleep on the Thought Setter’s verse. Perfect for the winter blahs.

On Jan 30th, Greenhouse will be premiering the video for “Cold out Here” at Carabar. The show is free, all ages and will feature perfomances by Greenhouse, Apocalypse Inc., Johnny Cashola and All Eyes Path.
