As the set-up for his album, PV$$Y RICH is not only a display of Wais P’s talents, but also a platform for the rapper, who’s also an active pimp, to continue to spread his Pimp-Hop movement. “I’m making music more tailor made to who I am,” says Wais, explaining his direction with the new tape. “This is the set-up, and my album will delve even deeper into this life, and Pimp-Hop.”
PV$$Y RICH features an impressive list of guests, names like Action Bronson, Devin The Dude, GLC, Mistah FAB, 8Ball & MJG, and more. But for Wais, it wasn’t about chasing names, but rather collaborating with artists that he likes, that he felt would add to the project. “I wanted to work with artists that I thought were interesting,” says Wais, “I wanted to work with charismatic personalities. Mistah FAB – he has a big personality; everyone knows Action Bronson; GLC is one of the most prolific pimp spitters in the game other than myself.” And in addition to the big name features, Wais also uses PV$$Y RICH to introduce the artists on his label, Every Hood Records, artists like Took Da Locsta, who is featured on the tape’s intro and the track “Real Pimps.”
Beyond the features, though, Wais is the true star of the tape, delivering not only tracks that fall in line with his Pimp-Hop movement, but also songs like “G. Dep,” a track that pays homage to the former Bad Boy rapper, currently serving time for a murder charge. “I tried to emulate his flow, which is still innovative to this day,” says Wais of the track. “I wanted to be a voice for what he represents, and it’s one of my favorite tracks on the mixtape.”
Alright, lots of Freddie this morning. He dropped the video from his prior EP with Statik Selektah today on Youtube, directed by Oliver Whitehouse.
And yesterday he released a free album, Cold Day in Hell. The link was shut down and LRGs servers crashed, so here’s a new one: http://l-r-g.com/blog/2011/10/31/colddayinhell/
The three man group, Notoriety: Vydle Sinez, Incredible Chuck, and The Technician, put their hard work in the hands of Boston’s renowned DJ Statik Selektah for the mixing/mastering/hosting of their third official mixtape, Part Deux. The results were astronomical. With original production/sampling from The Technician and other featured producers, the tape’s sounds will capture you with the beats alone. Download the tape for free here.
Chris recently released his fifth mixtape, “Best In The Burbs,” (hosted by Big Mike) and the day the mixtape was released Datpiff.com actually crashed for 30-minutes, which they say has never happened before (even with Wiz and the recent surge of mixtapes that dropped near the holidays–Asher & Nottz, Rick Ross, Diggy Simmons etc) and they relayed back that they were getting 30-clicks per second during the initial rush. Chris has also received close to 60K combined plays and DL’s for the mixtape in just over a week. Over the last month he has also amassed over 2.5 Million Youtube plays.
Chris Webby returns with his highly anticipated fifth mixtape simply entitled “Best In The Burbs” (hosted by Big Mike). With the release of this project the Connecticut MC shows his progression and evolution as an artist, while staying true to his witty metaphors, clever rhyme schemes, and heavy-hitting punchlines that have helped him earn a massive underground following. Webby continues to raise the bar with this mixtape working with the likes of Statik Selektah, Ski Beatz, Big Krit, Joell Ortiz and Evo. Enjoy!

AZ, one of the most overlooked and underrated rappers still working, has recently released a 15th anniversary edition of Doe or Die, in which old songs are reworked and new songs are added. “The Calm” is one of the latter, the beat rocking the bruise-inducing impact of contemporary drums with the sad, grimy beauty of mid-’90s hip-hop.
