“Johnny Spanish’s music continues to creep its way onto the iPods of listeners looking for the next big thing. His latest project The Lip is going to make a serious play for slept-on status of 2010. The full-length LP offers 14 tracks that showcase the Louisville slugger’s consistency and versatility and “My Way” may be one of the shining moments, showcasing Spanish’s tongue-twisting lyrics and vocal command of both rhythm and melody.
Vinnie Paz Drops Solo LP "Season of the Assassin" This Week
Vinnie Paz has had a career spanning almost two decades, co-founding the legendary Jedi Mind Tricks as well as East Coast indie supergroup Army of the Pharaohs, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down. This week, the underground MC has ventured out on his own with his solo debut, Season of the Assassin, out now via Enemy Soil. Hip Hop DX calls Season of the Assassin, “an exciting break from the usual JMT formula, with Paz hitting his stride as a lyricist and showing a different and more fully-rounded side to his craft.”
The album features a virtual who's who of artists and producers, including Beanie Sigel, Clipse, Freeway, Paul Wall, ILL Bill, and R.A. the Rugged Man. Vinnie unleashed the first video, “Keep Movin’ On” featuring Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), on his official website last week. Check it out below.
