Although we don’t always update our blog, we still keep our ear to the train tracks.  Since separating himself from M*******, he has been buzzing heavy!  He drops joints that give you that “real” feeling and keep it hip hop for real sans “image”.  It’s hard to no feel that he’s being honest.  That being said, he put out a video for “Radio Rap Is Not Ill”.    We want to know what you think.

Illa Ghee

Born and raised in Brooklyn’s own Sumner Housing Projects (aka Sumnerville, aka Outta Bounds NYC), ILLA made the transition from street Pharmacist to rising MC stardom. As Brooklyn’s fastest upcoming MC in the late nineties and early 2000s he was recognized as the next Biggie Smalls by many seasoned vets in the rap game. After making a memorable appearance on Mobb Deep’s Hell On Earth LP (“Can’t Get Enough Of It”), ILLA had the misfortune of falling victim to the streets.

As a result of this encounter with the law, ILLA had to do a 6-year bid in VA, and postpone his spot as BK’s next boss. Upon his release in 2002, ILLA picked up right where he left off before his incarceration. He recorded at a break neck pace and, found himself being placed in DJ Kay Slay’s “Best of Freestyles” top ten for his “3 Million Freestyle”. Soon after, Ghee recorded “Medicine Rap” featuring Prodigy of Mobb Deep. The song made it’s way onto DJ Kay Slay’s Street Sweepers Vol. 5 edition mixtape. After the Street Sweepers mixtape flooded the streets, ILLA GHEE appeared on Mobb Deep’s LandSpeed released “Free Agents” Mixtape, which sold over 650,000 copies.

Still unsigned but working at a feverish pace, ILLA GHEE managed to appear on DJ Big Mike’s West Coast Mixtape, Mobb Deep’s Murda Muzik Soundtrack, DJ Mello’s Chemical Files Mixtape, P-Cutta’s Street Wars 12 Mixtape, DJ Premier’s Step Ya Game Up Mixtape, DJ Onpoint’s Exclusive Radio Mixtape Vol. 1, DJ Kay Slay’s Street Sweepers Protect Ya Neck Mixtape, and the Payola Bros. Street Beef Vol. 8.

During this time Mobb Deep began to experience bad publicity within industry circles. Although ILLA remained loyal to his long time Mobb Deep fam, he was unfazed by the industry politics that began to follow him because of his Mobb Deep affiliation. ILLA kept working and his hard work finally paid off. World famous hip hop producer The Alchemist, tapped Illa Ghee to appear alongside himself, Prodigy of Mobb Deep, and Nina Sky on the street anthem “Hold U Down”. Armed with just his lyrical talent and veteran work ethic, ILLA produced one of the hottest verses of the year like the famed:

“For all da niggaz I war for,,, blow the 44 for”

and, made a name for himself by holding his own with the other heavyweights on the song.

He raised the bar for other up and coming unsigned artists by appearing on a Top 40 radio hit, receiving over 200 BDS Spins per week, and having a video aired on BET’ and MTV. With the help of Mixtape Merchants Ent., ILLA completed 6 highly acclaimed street mixtapes.

Astro – Catchin Wrek [New Video] @AstronomicalKid

Born and raised in New York where he resides with his mother, Astro…

Fast forward past x-Factor and jump straight to Deadbeats & Lazy Lyrics, which can be downloaded here, and you will find who I believe is an ill lyricist.  Period.  Then add the fact that he is younger than your little brother (in most cases) and able to be played in the whip with your fam (kids included)… and Astro will not disappoint you.  A lot of people scream about how the youth have no heart and soul when it comes to hip hop.  If thats truly your frame of mind then this may completely change that, or at least start to point your opinion in  a different direction.

Catchin Wrek definitely makes it hot!!  Check the video and let us know what you think.  I believe this is the second joint off the mixtape Deadbeats & Lazy Lyrics, which can be downloaded here.

Born and raised in New York where he resides with his mother, Astro attends Junior high school in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn, which is where he developed and cultivated his skills as an emcee. What sets Astro apart from other rappers is his ability to conceptualize and convey his thoughts over any track, in such a way that evokes nostalgia in the hearts of old school hip-hop followers, all the while providing a fresh new sound that is sure to get the heads’ of the new hip-hop generation bopping. A contradiction in and of himself, Astro is a diehard old school rap fanatic. He spends much of his time studying the lyrical styles of artist in the likes of Rakim, KRS 1, and Run DMC, just to name a few. Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls and Nas have also served as sources of influence for Astro. His greatest musical influence however, is Jay-Z, to whom he is often compared.

Astro has developed into a force to be reckoned with, ensuring that anyone who attends his show will leave feeling thoroughly entertained. Never a disappointment, Astro continues to wow audiences along the east coast, performing a medley of his hits at events such as; The City of Wilmington, DE’s Stop The Violence Rally, The NYC Board of Education’s Light Night ceremony, The Cakeman Raven’s Annual Block Party in Brooklyn, NY, The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival and the BK Fashion Weekend. Yes, Astro puts it down at any venue; he commands the attention of everyone within earshot of his microphone. With a single titled “Stop Looking at My Moms,” it’s almost impossible for anyone not to stand at attention when The Astronomical Kid takes the stage. With each performance Astro takes one step closer to becoming the artist he was born to be. His rapidly growing fan base reflects just how true to the game he is. In an era where getting up on a stage and just spitting a hot sixteen bars isn’t enough anymore, Astro gives a show that no one will soon forget. With backup dancers and a hype-girl, it is an experience that cannot be explained, only felt. Even before he hit his teens, Astro mastered the art of entertaining, making many so called “established artist” look like amateurs. The kid is dope!!! Dubbed “The Hip-hop Resurrector”, “The Lyric Perfector” Astro is in two words… The Truth!!!
