Kannon Presents - The Best Of March 2013

I was gonna try to throw this together after work tomorrow, but my plans for tonight fell through. Everyone I know is sick. So here I am, bringing you the 20 illest joints from March 2013. Some dope new shit in this mix too. This month, we saw C Plus reunite with Ski Beatz for a 5 track free EP. Justin Timberlake released one of the dopest collections of music in recent years. Schoolboy Q, John Legend, Big K.R.I.T. and AEli all dropped the first single for their upcoming respective albums. ANTHM linked up with Blu for a stupid dope EP. Drake put on his serious face. Substantial linked back up with Marcus D for an amazing remix to one of his "Home Is Where The Art Is" tracks. I was late on the newest Magic Heart Genies album that dropped last december. Jay-Z hopped on a Kendrick Lamar remix, and Kendrick outshined the shit out of him. TiRon & Ayomari dropped more hot fire. And I discovered Kyle, Roosh Williams, City Lights and The Bullitts. Not a bad month.

A lot of homies putting in work today. This time Intuition & EQ are back at it with this gem.

Denzel Curry "Gets in the Game" on MTV's Rap Fix with Waka Flocka (Video)

Get More:
Music News

I never really post shit like this but, I thought this was cool. Rvdxr Klvn's Denzel Curry was on MTV's Rap Fix, which I guess basically involves Sway interviewing an artist (in this case Waka) and has him check out an indie/upcoming artist and give them some feedback. They had him watch the AWESOME video to Denzel's Threatz track, which is fitting since Waka gets a shot out on the track. Watch the video to see waka say he wants to get on the remix...which would be dope.

Sinuous - It Ain't Love Ft Jon Jinx (Video)

The big homie, Sinuous drops what I guess we can call his first single off his highly anticipated Needle to the Groove album. I feel like the 805 has been awaiting its release on some detox shit haha. Sin is a local cat out here that a lot of us 805 area artist unify to get behind because he's been putting out quality work for a really long time. As evidence with his polished/yet oh so dusty jazz sound. Really hoping that this video is the tool to get his momentum going. Do yourselves a favor and check out some of his back catalog.

2.7.5. Denzel Curry - Threatz ft. Yung Simmie & Robb Bank$ (Video)

I posted this track up a few months back and it's been in heavy rotation since. Now we get a set of visuals. Denzel Curry is quickly becoming a mainstay in the BRK movement. & With nostalgic 64 gearing up to be released folks will start to catch on.

Kendrick Lamar - Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe Rmx (Ft Jay Z)

When most folk dial up a remix, we usually get some phoned in shit. That isn't the case with the prince of the Left Coast. Kendrick lets loose two all new verses and if that's not enough he brings in HOVA. Heat.

AEli - Going Crazy

This kid is quickly becoming one of my favorite people to watch. Constantly good music coming out of the Elephant In The Room camp. This one is from AEli's upcoming album, The Void, which is slated for a June 30th release.

GrandeMarshall – Dedicated (ft. Saudi Money)

We were one of the first blogs to support Phillys GrandeMarshall. It's just really good to see the kid continue to push forward and continue to elevate. Here goes a single from his upcoming #Muggaman project. Heat.

Killah Priest - The Winged People (Video)

Growing up Priest was probably my favorite emcees. Over the years the other heads that were in my own personal top 10 have pretty much all fallen the fuck off. I've always been weary about listening to new KP shit becasue I didn't want to hear any garbage shit from him. In no way am I saying he hasn't put out duds....but the cool thing about it is he still finds away to surprise me with heat every now and again. This is the case with his new Double Disc album The Psychic World Of Walter Reed. It is highly enjoyable. It took me a little while to work up the courage to check it...but man am I glad I did. Anyways, enough of my rambling, Here goes a set of visuals off said album. This single is a pretty good summary of what you get when listening to the new album, so if you enjoy it be sure to check out the Project.

Harry Fraud - Morey Boogie Boards (Ft Action Bronson)

More Harry Fraud for the day. This time around it's the first single (which features Action Bronson) off his ADRIFT project which will be out friday. These guys really make a damn good team together.

"Adrift is a project that rounds up all the random songs I have produced for people over the last year and a half outside of my immediate Coke Boys and SRFCHL families, as well as previously unreleased songs from Action Bronson, Mac Miller, French Montana, Chevy Woods, and Chinx Drugz. This project is meant to serve as a prequel to the EP I will be releasing with Scion AV in late April. Also look out for an instrumental project, as well as a collection of music from me and French Montana coming in the next two months."

****UPDATED with Album

Scotty - Clarity (Ft. Ebony Love) UPDATED with DL.

This one is actually co produced by Cardo, which is the second time (that I know of) that Burn One and him have linked up with the same artist. The other was Mookie Jones. This shit goes.

***UPDATED: Here goes the soundcloud version also the downloadable version.


DeLorean - Grace (produced by DJ Burn One)

Here goes Grace, an in studio performance from DeLorean. This is a track produced by none other than DJ Burn One....and GOOD GOD what a beat. Burn One and his 5 Points team never seem to stop working and putting out some masterful shit. This is smooth as fuck. Look for DeLorean's mixtape coming out soon.

Danny Brown - #HottestMC (prod by Harry Fraud)

Lately I've been getting a little nervous about this new direction Danny seemed to be heading in. But with this new single produced by Harry Fraud a lot of that sentiment has been put to bed.

JODY - Magique (EP)

I really don't know much about this group JODY. One would assume it's a group comprised of 3 members, but I'm hearing it might be 6. This Magique EP is comprised of 3 actual songs and 3 interludes. All song's are produced by The-Drum. This will draw comparisons to the weeknd with it tripped out stylings and its curse laden content. I however wouldn't go that far as to bolster that claim...but either way this is a solid intro to a group that is gearing up to put out a full length. Color me intrigued.
