This beat reminds me of when I started listening to the “New West” sound back in 2008. The era of Fly Union, Dom Kennedy, Pac Div, U-N-I, and more. Today Thurz recreates that sound for his latest single, “Big Bang 2“. It features OverDoz and BJ The Chicago Kid. This comes from his “‘Dirty Designer Remixes.” coming soon. Produced by C. Watts.

Now for those that know me, church is not my forte`. I associate myself as a heathen when it comes to church and religion talk. I try to stay away from the steps of the all mighty judgement, but that has never stopped me from listening to the music it brought. Hit Boy was successful enough to keep me from running, with this track, “Divine Guidance“. Using the backings of a gospel choir, he spits his gospel on this eye opening truth.

No word if this will be featured on any project. I’m going to go enjoy whatever sermon I can get from this

Let me tell you how timeless this song is. To this day, my Mom has random outbursts singing this song while she’s in one of her clean moods. I’d think she would appreciate this rendition V. Bozeman beautifully slayed. Adding her twang to it, V. Bozeman covers Michel’le’s 1989 single, “Something In My Heart“.

I think its about time I replace my mother’s outbursts with my own.

I have been watching both players start from the bottom and rise from the ashes over the course of the years, and they both finally have reached their come up. Breezy Lovejoy or Anderson .Paak has had multiple placement on Dr. Dre’s “Compton” album and Knxwledge has paved his way, producing for Kendrick Lamar on his “To Pimp A Butterfly” album. But what happens when you put both .Paak and Knxwledge together on the same track? Well we get “Link Up & Suede” from Nxworries!

The EP offers 6 tracks, including two remakes of “Suede” and “Drugs“. Have a drink and vibe out to the luscious beats of Knxwledge and the infectious sounds of .Paak’s one of a kind voice.
