[First off, I’d like to apologize to everyone for the lack of hip-hop delivered by myself over the last couple weeks.  One of those times when the “real job” takes priority over the “dream job”.  I’ve highlighted some of the tracks I’ve missed lately, so although they may be a bit late, they all need to be heard.  Hope you enjoy.  – Grubeats]

Mid tour, Timeflies deliver the latest episode of The Clockumentary. Welcome to the show.

West Coast prodigy, Kendrick Lamar is busy tending to the media as they boast the beauty of his first studio album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, released today under Top Dawg Ent, Interscope, and Aftermath.  Grab the album on iTunes or head to your local Target and pick up a physical copy of the deluxe edition.  This is one of those albums you’ll show your kids one day (when they’re old enough).

Feeling froggy once again, Tayyib drops off another loose track featuring fellow Philly-via-Flint native, Gilbere Forte,  for a stunt worthy cruising track.  With a Nintendo inspired beat crafted by 2Astronauts, this is the type of track I’ve been waiting to hear from Tay.

Newcomer  Nick Ingram lets go a Cuey laced feature entitled, “This Moment”, which is featured on his brand new free album, Chrome Roses.

While Seattle’s fan base is currently captivated by the success of Macklemore, young preacher, Sol, continues to release very impressive and insightful music.  Amidst his journey in East Africa, Sol continues to write and even record overseas, delivering a new perspective in his music.  Enjoy this one and expect another album coming from the Zilla early in 2013 (hopefully).

I introduced Devine Carama to FNT a couple weeks back with his final single, “White Girl Lost”,  before the release of his mixtape, It Was Rewritten (A Nas Tribute).  As if the mixtape wasn’t enough, Carama lets loose an additional track, “ADHD Flow”, that reinforces his lyrical artillery.

KURT has impressed me over and over with his freestyles and remixes over some of the hottest industry hits.  Although this one isn’t hot off the vinyl, I don’t believe it has received the credit it deserves.  With that being said, enjoy this rendition of “Diced Pineapples”.
