At last, we get the long-awaited second installment of Keystone State Of Mind from Philly representative, Tayyib Ali. After releasing a couple sneak peeks such as “Tomorrow” & “Like I Used To” the remaining 16 unreleased tracks are ready for our listening pleasure. Tayyib delivers another well-rounded project that contains only one feature and ton of great productions from the likes of Statik Salektah, 2Astronauts, 6ix, Teddy Roxpin & many more. Tayyib has without-a-doubt progressed as an artist since his previous release nearly 2 years ago. If you’ve been sleeping on him all this time, wake up and get familiar.

There is no doubt that when Tayyib Ali released his Keystone State of Mind mixtape, we got something special. I wouldn’t expect anything less from the young visionary’s next installment, Keystone State of Mind 2. His newest 2Astronauts produced track “Like I Used To” proves just what I’m talking about. Tayyib delivers a smooth flow, accompanied by an amazing chorus that you can’t help but vibe to. Keep on the lookout for Keystone State of Mind 2 as well as a joint project between Tayyib and Cisco Adler.

Hip-Hop | Aziz – My Own World [Music Video]

“What am I? Who am I? I’m heavily scrutinized, They say, “pick a nationality.” Either way I choose divides me”

Aziz has experimented with his sounds over the past few years, seen the highs and lows, and is back with a revamped style fitting for all fans of old and new.  His previous single, “City Livin” which featured singer/guitarist Mike Irving was a very laid back acoustic jam, heavily suited for the season.  The newest release, “My Own World” focuses on the adversity Aziz has been faced with throughout life, birthed from a German mother and a Senegalese father, Aziz is constantly questioned “what he is”.  The NH born MC has fought through the doubt and disbelief and is again proving his abilities.  These past 2 releases have been my favorite in quite some time from Aziz and I love the new sound he has brought to the table.  New mixtape, Tinderboxx, due in late September.

Hip-Hop | Tayyib Ali – Dreaming (Prod. by The Astronauts)

Posted by on June 13, 2012

With his head high, Tayyib has been very eager to give his fans what they want.  New music.  Linking up with one of his top production duo’s, The Astronauts,  Tay releases the latest single off his third coming mixtape.   In the past they have collaborated on “High Definition”, “Tomorrow”, and “Never Change” and I think it’s safe to say we can expect more work in the near future.  Tay spit me some of these bars acapella back when I interviewed him in Boston and I’ve been waiting for the final product ever since.  Although the prince of Philly still has a way to go to be where he ultimately see’s himself, he’s got the demeanor and potential to make it there.

In other news, Tayyib and label-mate, Logic, are preparing to kick off their first even nationwide tour on July 7th, presented by Visionary Music Group.  There’s no reason why you shouldn’t grab your tickets now! Full details after the break.
