Visionary Bars :: KB The Boo Bonic Teams Up With Devin The Dude For ‘Blew Eyez’

It’s not even summer yet, and KB the Boo Bonic has already decided to drop a summer banger in the form of the soon to be smoker’s anthem Blew Eyez.  The track is already smooth as hell, but when the legendary Devin the Dude drops in for the assist on the hook, it elevates everything to a new level, and KB more than steps up to the plate on the verse work.  Her flow has bounce, her voice has confidence, and the bars are (obviously) right on point in terms of the topic at hand.  I hadn’t heard from KB in a minute musically, so it’s good to know that she’s still putting in work and rubbing elbows with the proper company.  Shout out to Dions Cartoons for lacing KB with a memorable as hell video as well.

Combustible Combo :: Blackillac Goes In Once Again With ‘Big Bang’

Blackillac is usually known for high energy, braggadocious, in your face tracks, but for 2020, it appears that they are planting the flag of creative range and stylistic variety.  Big Bang, the latest track and video from the duo, finds them utilizing a different flow than normal over a hypnotic track, with plenty of inter-song referential use to weave between the dual chorus that provides the song a foundation.  Zeale and Phranchyze also manage to show tons of confidence in the most reserved way possible.  This is definitely another winner from a winning team, and the Dan2TheL-directed video helps boost the experience.  Check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around!

Not too long ago, the homie Coolzey hit me up with an interesting proposition… 8 bars for a posse cut to help him lock down the final round for a contest known as VPC6, where Coolzey did multiple rounds of songwriting in hopes of achieving victory.  For the final round, Coolzey called in some big guns : A Billi FreeChris CondeLil LavedyIce Tha OneMC AnimosityiMPERFEKTBeefy and myself (Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice) all turned in 8 bars to help make Bring Out Your Nerd a reality.  The end result is dope, and I’m personally proud of my verse, which is comprised solely of movie titles (almost all of which I own physical copies of).  Check out the track, and leave a vote to help Coolzey achieve victory!

Perfected Patience :: Apaso And Progeny Connect For ‘Sorry Not Sorry’

a2028547451_10

As 2020 rolls around, it’s crystal clear that San Antonio has no intentions of slowing down the output when it comes to hip-hop music, especially that which is produced by Progeny.  After dropping a new Chisme project, Progeny finds himself sharing the spotlight once again, this time with San Antonio heavyweight MC Apaso via a collaborative EP titled Sorry Not Sorry.  Over the course of the past 8 years or so, the duo collaborated on a series of tracks, and after testing the waters with the Chingona video, the pair have unleashed a solid effort via Sorry Not Sorry.  The production is dark and textured, providing plenty of sonic output for head nodding, while Apaso‘s smooth and assured delivery fits right in naturally.  This one is rock solid, so don’t sleep on it.  Check it out, share it around for others to do the same, and support if you can by purchasing!

Legendary Figures :: Michael Garcia And Co. Pay Tribute To A San Marcos Icon In ‘A Hole In The Wall’

Anyone who’s spent any amount of extended time in the San MarcosTexas area over the past 40 years or so either knew or was aware of Eddie Mack, the notorious and outgoing owner of the Showdown Amusement Bar.  In A Hole In The Wall, a documentary created to pay tribute to the man, his bar, and the impact it left on the community, we are given insight into the effect that Mack had on people via candid interviews and archival footage.  His arrival to the town, the establishment of his bar, his local campouts that brought the community together and his passing are all examined and reflected upon, with sincerely powerful moments of raw emotion captured as those whose lives that Mack touched take the time to contemplate it.  This is certainly a documentary worth your time, so check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for San Martians (and non-Martians, for that matter) to experience.

Instant Classic :: The Vapor Caves Drop Amazing Video For ‘Bitch To The Boys’

The Vapor Caves appear to have no intention of slowing down their upward trajectory as they head into 2020.  After a year full of successful buzzwork and a brilliant debut album, the duo is hitting the ground running with an instantly iconic video for Bitch to the Boys, one of my personal favorite cuts from a dynamite-filled project.  The video takes things to the extreme, with 80s style oozing throughout the wardrobe, vehicles, props and demeanor of all involved.  Thanks to the work of Side Label, the visual direction of Andrew Baird, dance choreography by Misa Soliz, visual effects from Orion Garcia and costuming from Mysidia and Never Over Vintage, plus a handful of cameos from some Austin familiar faces, us viewers have been blessed with what is almost guaranteed to be a viral success.  Dig it and dig it good, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for everyone to enjoy!

While not necessarily known for a high crime rate, Austin most definitely has its fair share of cats who can both talk that talk and walk that walk when it comes to hood moves.  When it comes to my personal preferences, no crew is representing that sound for Austin better than the League of Extraordinary G’z, and lately, the homie Dominican Jay has been putting out banger track after banger track.  The latest is another collaboration with $.Dot (who is quickly becoming another one of my favorite local MCs), and with the vocal assist from Sertified and a monster of a track from Ball TeamDirty Money is another Austin anthem in the making.  Check this one out, as it’s most certainly worth your time and efforts, and if you dig it, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for others!
