Intervallum 82 - Long Time Comin

Special Teamz - Stereotypez

Newly formed group made up of Bostonian underground emcees Slain of La Coka Nostra, Jaysaun of The Kreators, DJ JayCeeOh and the legendary Edo G. For their Duck Down debut they've enlisted the like of Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Jake One and Marco Polo on production, and while each member brings their own personal style to the album, they still share a common factor, growing up in one of America's oldest cities. Though rich in history, Boston is not without its faults, nor is it widely spoken of when referring to hip hop, as the group touches on socio-political topics and a city that prides itself on its diversity, and yet this ideology alone is the reason it remains a city divided.

Intervallum 79 - Stoned Raiders

Cypress Hill - Temples Of Boom

"Once again the powers of the herb open up the deep inside and tell me what you find." With that piece of counsel (soon followed by a coughing fit), Cypress Hill begins its journey through Temples of Boom, the group's third (and seemingly Halloween-inspired) album. Creepy, catchy and cranky The Temples of Boom is mostly the same little green bag of tricks, mixed with the occasional Cypress treat. On each spooky track, the Hill leads the listener deep within the temples, fills the room with ganja smoke, and then suddenly leaps out, flexing its trademark skillz inches from your nose. For me it's their best album.

Intervallum 77 - Lyrical Melee

Army Of The Pharaohs - Ritual Of Battle

The collection of tracks on Ritual of Battle is so grimy and morbid that it would make your current favorite hard body emcee run and shudder and will probably have the same effect on your average Hip Hop fan. Army Of The Pharaohs’s group members all contribute their unique style to the cauldron reminiscent of another 9 member group from New York (Wu Tang) but their concoction, Ritual of Battle, lacks the chemistry and focus of early Wu Tang projects. Ritual of Battle is an album for a specific niche of hardcore East Coast underground heads and despite the endless violence there are still some head bangers on Ritual Of Battle but if you’re not apart of the cult they’re targeting it’s safe to pass on Ritual Of Battle.
