Ka Auditron Ba - The Final Conflict

This Is For The Hustlers has already posted it and I totally missed it until now. Ka Auditron Ba aka The Auditrons who are Karma Chi and Hypnotic of the Kemetic Suns crew put out some unreleased stuff which was recorded between '97 and '98. All 21 tracks were produced by King Koncepts.
What a joy! I'm now going to listen to it.

Anonymous Inc. RE-UP

For those who have heard of Ceschi, there is an early collaboration with his brother David Ramos called Anonymous Inc. Back in the day they also had their own website with some interesting MP3s that you could download for free. This album was released in 2001 and Ceschi and David already had their styles fully developed. Besides rapping double-time, both also played multiple instruments as you can see on DiscoG's.
The album itself fits perfectly to the upcoming winter time, most of the tracks are instrumentals that are partly moody with abrupt change of tempo and style. You won't be bored for sure! Some tracks contain raps and on some you can hear Ceschi or David singing.
An interesting track for example is "Broken Wings" with Dose One who gained attention at that time with his group Clouddead and the whole Anticon fam that was also gaining more and more popularity for their different approach of Hip-Hop music as they were originally musicians who migrated to Hip-Hop. There are alot of similarities between the music on this album and the music that has left the Anticom fam btw! Tommy V and Maleko from the La2thebay fam also appear on the same track as a surprise because at that time members of the Anticon fam rarely collaborated outside of Anticon.
Another interesting appearance comes from Perfecto from the Copacetic Concepts fam that we dealt with some months ago. Sorry, but I can't recall who started it.

Eligh - 80HRTZ

Hey guys, you shoud definitely check out Eligh's new album 80HRTZ. It is produced by DNAE beats who also worked together with Paranorml and Neila in the past. The beats are dope as fuck and Eligh is spitting like hell! There will be a CD and a limited vinyl version in red.
You can get the album on Bandcamp for free but some bonus tracks are missing there, it looks like that you can only get them with the physical releases or any other digital service that you have to pay for. On one of these bonus tracks Basik MC has a very dope appearance btw.

Abstract Rude & Myka 9 are AyeM Ray-DIO

It's already some weeks old and I still don't know what to think about this album. My own expectations were totally different from the actual release. Since the moment I first heard Mikah 9's 'It's All Love' and already hearing ATU's 'South Central Thynk Taynk' a million times I waited for a collaboration album between Mikah 9 and Abstract Rude with production from Joseph Leimberg and Fat Jack that would blow me away.
So, it is not what I expected it to be but it absolutely grew on me and it is definitely worth a check!
