Probably my favorite of the recent finds on the 'tube.
Fuck that. Everything new (at least since the Ice Water signing) from CNN has been ill. The War Report II is at the top of my list for anticipated releases this year. Fuck your corny swagger-new jack-weirdo name rap. That shit holds no weight, so keep that in the single-digit 2000's. CNN made two classic albums when you had to be nasty to achieve such a feat...their first being a SUPER classic. If you don't agree, you are probably scared of life or in need of a nanny still (you'd be scared, but you get the "age pass").
I wish this was an original CNN beat. Nothing against Jay Electronica, but the combo of the Just Blaze heater and Nore really showed me how back to form things really are...prime example material. Let's also not forget that Ice Water Inc. means that The Chef is on deck to help provide a platform for release...the influence is apparent...and that is one of the best things possible for their dynamic of 90's fed, reference-heavy, image spewing, street rap.
Here's the whole joint with Pone on the 2nd round murder.

Word. I've been busy. You can hear one thing I've done on this here April episode of Boundless Radio (click to download).
Like last month's ep (with Large Pro as the special guest), Teddy King mans the wheels, showcasing not only his deep-crated selection of grooves/breaks/originals and assorted Hip Hop gems, but also the newest contributions to his Nas remix project (TK, hit me with that official title...if that's even thought up yet)... those of which included two joints, done separately, by the duo of Drop Grenade... Tesly Snipes' darkened 80's reinterpretation of "Thief's Theme"...and my own vision of how G'ster "Fast Life" could have been (I know, NOT a Nas song per say, but Nas and G Rap both held equal bar weight on the joint...and c'mon, it was an easy way to throw Kool G Rap over one of my beats).
There's exclusive Purple Tape Pedigree video footy of this recording session taking place...quite some gems in there, including the live in-studio performance by Tes and the first appearance of Ted Dancin'...as well as varied liquid, pizza, and Stackhouse fueled moments. Coming soon.
Shouts to the entire Boundless Crew and everyone else in the spot...my main stain Tes-Juno, Ted Dancin', Stickz, Aaron, Kellen Diesel True Religion Tuxedo (if only I had a photo to show you), my millz A2 (who had a retarded banger on last month's Boundless ep..."God Love Us"), Rugged One, and the rest...even wifey came with me and enjoyed herself (LOVE YOU CAT!).
