“Its Mass, city of Worcester”

I love being from Worcester, we have so much good music coming out the city right now its hard not to take notice. I have known Spit Supreme for years now and can honestly say he has paid his dues in this rap shit. Supreme flows effortlessly over the 88 Keys beat and flips it nicely in his own fashion, much props. What up Butcher’s Block! Download Spit Supreme – Stay Up

Black Star – Thieves in The Night

 It took me quite sometime to post this because this is a song that truly emphasizes real hip hop. There was a time where I was heavily into the underground and when the Mighty Mos Def and Talib dropped Blackstar it was nothing short of a masterpiece. 88 keys provided in my opinion one of the most melodic beats in hip hop and allowed Mos and Talib to spit lyrical poetry upon it flawlessly. This song is so deep it still sends chills down my spine, the piano with the bass then the chorus its beautiful. In my opinion this is the pinnacle of conscious rap hands down.
