Over the Thanksgiving weekend producer Lee Bannon, rapper Kwame and Pro Era MC/producer Chuck Strangers were cooped up in a Brooklyn basement churning out records. The result was the birth of the trio's new group, Super Helpful. "SUMO." is the SH's first single off of their upcoming album slated to drop on January 1st, 2013. Producer Lee Bannon employs a few lights chords that help highlight two MC's off-kilter Brooklyn flows. Get your first dose of Super Helpful after the jump.

Well, It appears that throw back steez is really catching on. Which for us old heads, is a welcomed trend. Joey Bada$$ is really the poster child for the movement as of right now, you had to figure it would catch on at some point. Enter 16 year old NY spitter Bishop Nehru. Nehruvia really goes the same direction that Joey went, but really your not going to hear many complaints of saturation of this nostalgic style from me. For such a young kid, that has obviously done his home work on the 90's NY hip hop it is breath of fresh air to hear a new material that brings back those early memories to us older heads...& hopefully gets the younger heads to dig into the older releases.

Seattle work horse Nacho Picasso has been on a tear for the past year and some change. You're probably used to hearing him over Blue Sky Black Death production, but this time around you get to hear him over Raised By Wolves bangers. Its not a new pairing at all. Before Nacho was linked up with BSBD he was rocking over Raised by Wolves sound scapes. Black Narcissus is still the same Nacho you're used to, with witty banter and a laid back delivery, however if you were on the fence with him before this one may be a little more accessible for you.

So there's been a few heads telling me about this mysterious Captain Murphy character that has been (with the help of adult swim) releasing a few songs here and there with a few Odd Future heads every now and again. The mystery is thick and the theories on who captain murphy is are running rampant. A lot of the key ones are Flying Lotus and Tyler the Creator. Although I'm pretty sure some of this production sounds a lot like Lee Bannon. I guess it really doesn't matter who the exact participants are, but this shit is really enjoyable. The Quasimoto/MF Doom feel of it all is a breath of fresh air.
Some more Klvn work being put in. This time its Chris Travis & Ethelwulf over an Almighty banger. Check Ethelwulf going at pretty flacko again. This shit goes hard.
Some more Klvn shit. Denzel Curry links up with JK and Nell to drop this single of his upcoming Nostalgic 64 project.

Your favorite rappers favorite rapper dropped his prelude of what is to come. Fresh off his signing with a major, heads have been put on notice with this EP. Without going into full review mode, this is how an artist signs to a major and doesn't change one single thing. Blueprint you suckas. Here goes the first set of visuals from the EP. Respect the texture!

One of my favorite up and coming southern artist (ever since I heard THIS came out) just dropped a new FreEp featuring production from Q-Red. We're filing this under the Country Rap Tunes section...which as far as I'm concerned is always an indication of some dope shit.
In keeping with the previous BRK post, here goes Klvn member, Key Nyata's first single/video from an upcoming project produced by the hard working, hard hitting duo Blue Sky Black Death. No clue when the project is due out, Young God has said they're a handful of tracks deep....but if this is an example of what we can expect, good gawd we're in for another collaborated masterpiece from the duo.
So, before seeing this video last week, I had rarely ventured off into the Blvck Rvidxr Klvn world, other than the occasional Spaceghostpurp track. But I'm proud to announce the kid has went all in and done his homework. Moving on, this video is from brk's Nell & Ethelwulf and is point blank a HEATER....check for Ethel's shots aimed at the Asap camp. Also if your a rookie to the Klvn like me.....I'd recommend starting with Ethelwulf's The wolf Gang's Rodolphe, as it's easily my favorite tape from a member thus far.
Fresh off from dropping, what I view as one of the better Albums of the year, Grande lets loose a video that was actually not on 800. If you haven't had the time to check out his album, you should really do yourselves the favor and go all in.
