Tragedy Khadafi & BP are the “Upper Echelon” of rap (Debut Leak off ‘Immortal Titans’ Collab LP) • Word Is Bond


Tragedy Khadafi & BP  deliver their newest single titled “Upper Echelon,”. The record is a heavy street banger laced with a booming head-nodding production by BP and solid lyricism from the  QB legend . The brassy banger is also the first track we’re hearing from their much anticipated joint album, Immortal Titans. And while this may be the first proper project from the two New York artists—Trag is from Queensbridge, BP is from Amityville—they have proven to be a formidable duo in the past, like on BP’s hard hitting Timeless Music compilation.

N.B.S. enlist Tragedy Khadafi for some "Violent Wisdom" • Word Is Bond

The N.B.S crew have always been lacing us with hard-hitting rap cuts and this is no exception. The crew called up Queensbridge legend Tragedy Khadafi on their new street banger titled “Violent Wisdom”. Their in-house producer DJ Tray brings in the dusty samples and neck gripping drums for the emcees to kick that raw, uncut over. A homage to the seemingly forgotten intelligent street-focused approach to hip-hop, Violent Wisdom is another in the string of celebrated releases from the recently released SwissVets 2.

Top 5 submissions for 4th week April • Word Is Bond

As April comes to a close, we had to round things up with some interesting submissions from the vault. Sit back, relax and get familiar with these gems.







Providence, Rhode Island, based duo False Idol is proud to release their sophomore LP “Let ‘Em Eat Cake”. The first leak is  the somber ode to the natural herb titled “Somethin’ about Mary”. With emcee A-God’s clean, crisp flow and smooth beats from Evil Genius, the album pays homage to a classic underground sound.


N.B.S. (Natural Born Spitters) team up with QB legend Tragedy Khadafi on this street banger titled “Violent Wisdom”. Courtesy of producer DJ Tray, Violent Wisdom is built atop the dusty samples and neck snapping drums that define the true school hip-hop motif responsible for the careers of both N.B.S. and Tragedy Khadafi. A homage to the seemingly forgotten intelligent street-focused approach to hip-hop, Violent Wisdom is another in the string of celebrated releases from the recently released SwissVets 2.





Bristol-based producer Sam Krats follows up on his last single, “Revive Rap” featuring El Da Sensei with a darker sound in the form of his latest release “The Chosen,” this time featuring the lyrical talent of Crown Height’s finest, Ruste Juxx. The somber backdrop is totally cascaded by Ruste Juxx’s commanding flow and vivid lyrics



King Green (lead member of DC alt hip-hop band RDGLDGRN) makes his debut with his new track “Kaepernick”. On “Kaepernick”, Green drops jewels and takes witty shots at trending social and political topics like Trump, Kevin Spacey and more. The accompanying short visual created by Green himself takes things a step further tying each witty lyric to humorous clips and images to create a lyric video unlike any you have seen before.  Not to mention, the coolest pair of socks ever worn.



Detroit Emcee 44 ROC releases his dark visual to his latest single “Fourtune” off his EP “Luxury Tax”. In the video, 44 ROC is pushing his artistic boundaries to create music that dims a light onto mental instability, family issues, his childhood, and a slew of other topics that most ego fueled rappers wouldn’t dare to speak on. Directed by Manola Music & Films, 44 ROC sits down with himself as he splits two ways with one venting on his traumatic past while the other reminds him that “The most high is watching over him” and to know his worth.


44 ROC adds the “u” in “Fourtune to emphasize on his favorite number 4 which is the number of stability, order and completion of justice. It is the number of the square which symbolizes a strong foundation to build an empire upon. As within the Tarot, the number 4 is the emperor.
