Revisionist History :: Curbside Jones Blesses Our Eardrums With ‘CurbFlips’

Remixes have always been a vital part of the music industry at large, but for hip-hop, there is a special appreciation for taking the familiar and putting a new spin to it.  After a run of personally introspective and worldview expanding releases, I love the fact that Curbside Jones has thrown us all for a loop (pun intended) with a series of chop-heavy remixes on CurbFlips, his latest drop.  Artists like Pusha T, Freddie Gibbs, Common, Yasiin Bey, Sean Price, MF DOOM, Playboi Carti and many more get the Curbside Jones filter applied to great effect.  Definitely cop this one when payday comes around, and regardless of whether or not you own it, stream it and share it with everyone.

Masked Motivation :: Heir MAX Visualizes MF Doom Tribute Via ‘Exclamation Mark’

Here we are, nearly ten months removed from the death of iconic hip-hop figurehead MF Doom (eight months if you are counting from the date of the death announcement), and many of us are nowhere closer to coming to terms with this monumental loss.  To be fair, 2021 has not been easy on hip-hop fans, with Doom‘s passing marking the first of several iconic members of the hip-hop community passing away, but with Doom standing as ‘your favorite MC’s favorite MC’, it will be a long time before the masses are able to move on.  That being said, his legend is being kept alive by artists like heir MAX, who recently dropped a video for Exclamation Mark, one of the tracks off of his tributary MAX DOOM Mixtape.  The video, directed by Murdered, is a straight-forward affair, with heir MAX dropping his testimonial while donning the MF Doom mask as bits of his fictionalized discovery of the masked interspersed throughout.  If you’re a fan of MF Doom, or just someone who respects a proper tribute, then check out the video, leave a like and a comment, and share it with other hip-hop fans and lovers.

Survivor Sacrifices :: Clemits Continues Honoring MF DOOM Via Video With ‘CLEM F DOOM’

Austin-based MC and producer Clemits is keeping the remembrance of fallen hip-hop icon MF DOOM alive and well as he continues to share singles and videos from his dedication mixtape CLEM F DOOM.  This time around, he’s hit viewers with the single that shares its name with the project, and it’s a fitting parallel, as the single not only shows honor and respect to DOOM, but it also allows Clemits to express his ability to persevere in all of the madness that life lays out in front of us.  Mad props to the homie Clemits for being so respectful and honest in this venture, where many nowadays would sadly choose to exploit the passing of a man who meant so much to hip-hop.  If you’re feeling what Clemits is putting down, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for the rest of us hip-hop lovers still recovering.
