There's nothing quite like seeing it live, but here's the next best thing.

With 3 projects under his belt (Allergy Pills and Alcohol, The Nightmare Project, TO for Toronto), he has shown us he's a rapper's rapper, a student of the art and an undeniable talent. With #Sometime we scratch beyond the surface of the MC and enter a little deeper into the mind of SepTo.

One of my favorite new artists, SOHN (who will have an album in 2014 on 4AD, has done recent production for Banks and remixes for Lana Del Rey & Rhye), just put his incredible touch on Angel Haze's latest song "Echelon". Check it here and watch for more from both of them soon.

If you have not heard already, "Flyy Guy Fresh" is here to let you know who he is in his latest single "Royalty," produced by King Red. The Harlem bound rapper begins by clearing up all of what you "might have heard" and transitioning into what you need to know. His powerful chorus sums up everything: "Ambition of a Hustla / Eye of the Tiger / Can't stop till I wear the crown/ they saying 'Sire'"

The debut LP of the then totally unknown MC/producer duo was originally released in November 2011. During that time, Ill Adrenaline Records dropped underground smash albums and singles by Beneficence, Purpose & Confidence, Tragic Allies & Tragedy Khadafi, Da Beatminerz, Neek The Exotic, The Regiment & Confidence, The Legion, and The Purist & Roc Marciano. In the meantime, "The Element of Surprise" by Rashad & Confidence became an internationally critically acclaimed LP, considered by many as an instant classic by hip-hop heads worldwide. Push the play button and listen closely to the deep and soulful, but still hard hitting boom-bap beats of "The Element of Surprise", and get taken back to a time when hip-hop only produced classics.

@black_milk Scores Short Film "H8DES" Directed By Don Cheadle

Black Milk Scores Short Film "H8DES," Directed By Don Cheadle

Rapper and producer Black Milk, known for his adept sampling and lush, intricate sonic landscapes, has added film scoring to his repertoire on the Don Cheadle-directed short film "H8DES," part of Vanity Fair's The Decade Series, which tasks an eclectic group of filmmakers with creating 10 short films each representing a decade of the last hundred years. Cheadle's film represents the 1980s, exploring themes such as Reaganomics, the burgeoning technological explosion, and the AIDS and crack epidemics.

"Don was familiar with my work and reached out to me," says Black Milk. "He told me he was putting together a short for Vanity Fair and that he needed music for it, so I sent him a few tracks to listen to." With a varied mix of material to pull from, the duo were actually able to find something already in his catalogue that worked for the film. "[Don] wanted the instrumental to have a dark vibe," Black Milk continues. "He sent a rough cut of what he filmed and I tweaked the instrumental to fit. We went back and forth for a few weeks to make it happen." In the end they settled on a brooding, ominous soundtrack that includes a Kurtis Blow sample provided by Black Milk, as well as dozens of soundbites from 1980s television Cheadle's team had chopped and spliced, many of which pulled from Ronald Reagan's various television broadcasts.

Black Milk is currently on tour promoting new material from his upcoming album No Poison No Paradise, due out October 15th. As for any plans to do more film scoring down the road, he says, "If the opportunity presents itself, I'll be ready. Don actually wants me to be involved with a future project."
