THE MAN - Top $ Raz

Last year introduced you to Queens emcee Top $ Raz during what we called 12 Days OF RazMas, where we revisited daily each track of his debut album "Spilled Milk". The feedback was great and not only did a host of new people become aware of Raz but those that were already avid listeners to his music came to learn much more about him after reading his very introspective commentary on each songs creation.

Today we're proud to present to you a song from his forthcoming sophomore release,
"The New Flesh" entitled,"The Man" produced by J Monopoly. A mighty way to enter the new year. (We just wish he'd put a price on the download. Too much hard work to give away.)

Yule Prog 2010: Warren Britt Interview

Beaming with optimism and genuinely enthused for what possibilities may be conjured via movements of a progressive nature within an artists community, Warren Britt is a beacon of inspriation in an at times very dark and jaded underground music scene. In our interview he discusses being unapologetic about making an EP, filled with a number of 'party' tracks that most underground 'rappers' will likely not appreciate.

Black & Yellow (The Red & White Remix) Aka Shiro by Kojoe

Download: Black & Yellow (The Red & White Remix) MP3

"Red & White" Remix (English) Translation by Kojoe

Yea uh huh u kno what it is/ (red and white×4)

Yea uh huh I'm so ill with a risin sun on my shoulder holdin a pen that I inherited from my ancestor/

Yea uh huh/ u already know its me/ I'm the only anchor of legend/ that's me/

Imma ride for this island til I die/ (red and white×4)
I put it down for my japs and my kamikazes/

Red dot (hinomaru) with white back drop/
Buzz steady spreadin/ I call it JAP HOP/
A real soldier spits w/ pride and got nothin to hide/
put my life on the line w/ my japs to claim our kingdom/
Money can't buy change but a mic and a pen is my weapon to lead the next generation/
From NEW YORK to Japanese islands/
I'm the truth/ takin the crown/
(Sizzlin noise) hot boiled water/
Watch me carryin YAMATO (Japan) wherever I go
spiitin til I throw up and grindin for gwop/
where all my samurais whose ready to die for honor/
I swear to spirit that's made in japan/ (solute)


Sound of exhausts of kyusha (old japanese gangster's motorcycle)
echo when the rays from the sunset pierce my old wounds/
I'm hustlin for more/ either become a ruler of the under world or a hero of the real world/
pressure is massive but my woofa would blast it off/
better order KOJOE's product cuz it's so addictive/
people can't help but to come back for more/
this is a crime version of intelligence to build short cuts to the top/
you see a dragon?/ spiral staircase/


everybody get up/ always straight talk/ never get swallowed by trends/
if you are chained to the money then you ought to break them/
I'm carrying YAMATO (JAPAN) no matter what they say/
the whole hood is dancin cuz I brought truth with me/
I'm fully loaded/

under the name of YAMATO OMATSURI (we gonna party)
