Joey Bada$$ – Unorthodox (Prod. DJ Premier)

First we brought you the video of Joey Bada$$ and DJ Premier in the studio making this track. Next we brought you the radio rip of the track as premiered on Hip Hop Nation. Now we have the full version although it is clean (which just means it’s only a matter of time before we have the explicit version) courtesy of Green Label Sound. Here’s their promo below:

Brooklyn-raised Joey Bada$$ is resurrecting a golden time for us hip hop lovers. So who better to bring him through the beats than the legendary producer DJ Premier? Excited to work with this young, fresh voice in the game, Premo invited Bada$$ to his private HeadQCourterz Studio and “Unorthodox” is the result of these sessions. The track upholds Premier’s signature scratches and brings us Joey’s confident New York flow. Download the track right now and check out our “From The Block To The Top” video at greenlabelsound.com to watch Premo & Joey got to laying it down.

Joey Bada$$ – Impromptu Freestyle ft. Capital STEEZ & CJ Fly | Recording “Unorthodox” w/ DJ Premier

Joey Bada$$

As apart of the homies over at BarrelHouseBKLYN’s new series, The Vintage Collection – A treasure chest full of unreleased footage from the archives that BHBK’s Slick Jackson has filmed over the years – here we have Joey Bada$$, Capital STEEZ & CJ Fly doing an “Impromptu Freestyle” in December 2011 before Joey dropped his critically acclaimed 1999 mixtape. RIP Capital STEEZ.

In regards to the second video, it is no secret Joey Bada$$ is inspired by ’90′s golden era hip-hop. 1999 (via Cinematic Music Group) showcased his love for the decade and the legends it spawned. When Green Label Sound heard about Joey’s admiration for the legendary DJ Premier, they couldn’t pass up getting these two together for a track.

DJ Khaled – Hip-Hop ft. Nas, Scarface & DJ Premier [Prod by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League]

This is an absolutely monstrous record from DJ Khaled. I held off putting up the version with Funk Master Flex’s unbelievably annoying tags all over it. Scarface and Nas put down absolutely classic-caliber verses surrounding their woman (hip-hop) although Nasir Jones is just absolutely out of his mind right now with the quality of his tracks. The production from J.U.S.T.C.E. League is second to none on big live instrumentation tracks (see Maybach Music Pt. 2) and provides the perfect soundscape for these two veteran MC’s to go to work. By the way, props to DJ Premier stickin to the turntables in 2012 and doing what’s gotten him to the top of the hip-hop music world.

This right here is my favorite track of the day, at least so far. It’s a new joint from Big Shug, featuring Fat Joe & M.O.P. . The current version we’ve acquired is a clean edit, but we’ll update it when the explicit turns up. “Hardbody” is produced by the LEGENDARY DJ PremierI.M. 4-EVA drops July 24th.

*Throwback*/Hip-Hop – Common – The 6th Sense ft. Bilal

What a record, damn! Produced by DJ Premier, it features Premier’s trademark chorus with scratched samples; the samples are from “Memories Are Here to Stay” by The Intruders and “Allustrious” by Mobb Deep. The hook features vocals by neo-soul artist Bilal. Many critics from respectable publications have considered the record to be one of Common’s best, stating that the song is quintessential Common, both uplifting and thoughtful. Stand up for real hip-hop!

Enjoy!
