Tom Gist – For My Lady Friends (Mixtape)

I would like to give a big shout out to Tom Gist and Robert Early for coming through extra hard (pause) these past couple weeks. Just last Friday I was pleased to announce the Dat Piff release of Tom’s T.G.I.F offering and not 8 days later, I’m already announcing his newest mixtape (geared toward his “lady friends”) entitled For My Lady Friends.

This tape offers a softer, more vulnerable side of the lyrical giant, showcasing his romantic courting skills. Gist shines particularly well on the album’s intro (and self produced track)I Wanna Get Next To U.

Please hit this link and get a little closer to your special somebodies over the holidays.

Enjoy.

Just-In-Rhymes – Something In The Attic

The hard work, dedication and unwavering commitment that Just-In-Rhymes has put into his debut album is unparalleled to the efforts of any other artist I have ever been in contact with. From the seemingly never ending Timbuktu studio sessions (beginning in mid 2011), to the extensive mixing and mastering process (spilling into this past summer), Justin’s masterpiece Something In The Attic was certainly a labor of love.

Fortunately his blood, sweat and tears were not sacrificed in vain. From the hard hitting intro “Everything” to the album’s nostalgic closer “Yesterday” Justin and his crack-squad of highly respected producers, engineers and rappers left absolutely no room for negative critique.

Throughout it’s 14 tracks, a roller coaster of emotions is explored unapologetically and with complete vulnerability. During the album’s most chilling track “Straw Dogs”, the fictitious plot of a menacing rampage climaxes into a nightmare sure to frighten the squeamish and please the wicked.

Perhaps the most progressive and advanced song the album boasts is “Sproink”. With a feature from Timbuktu and Info The Astronaut, Mr. Rhymes is definitely in good company.

Without question, Something In The Attic is a superb first offering and will prove to be the first major milestone in the lengthy and prosperous career of Just-In-Rhymes.
