After a brief hiatus from murdering mics, DOOM affiliate/protégé staHHr has aligned with Crazy DJ Bazarro of the Dysfunkshunal Famlee/Beatminerz to bring you 7:30. Their upcoming, self-titled EP, still in the works, features staHHr rhyming over Bazarro’s gritty production; creating a much needed balance in the current male dominated world of hip hop. The first single, “Pandora” (b/w “ Weak Shit”) is a soulful lament about a relationship challenged by music as the consummate “other woman”. The video was directed and edited by Shareef Scott for Directorz Inc. Films.
staHHr, or as we affectionately refer to her “Barbarella”, hits us with round two of the Respect Due video series. This installment, she attacks the gritty Jeru the Damaja classic “Come Clean”, produced by DJ Premier. The video was shot on location in Brooklyn, NY by the talented photographer/videographer Corren Conway of F12 Films.

O.G. salute to the King of New York aka Frank White, Brooklyn’s finest. Biggie Smalls will always be the illest.

I am unapologetically a Joey Bada$$ enthusiast. He reminds of the mcs I grew up listening to. He’s not just babbling or spitting a bunch of nonsense. His lyrics are witty, intellectual and metaphysical. Style, flow, delivery are like that of a seasoned pro. His vocal tone and cadence reminds me of Black Thought and Breezly Brewin (Juggaknots), yet his sound and style are his own. This isn’t the most recent video, but this is my favorite joint of his, so I’m rocking with it tough. Looking forward to seeing him perform this Sunday at the Smoker’s Club Tour show in Atlanta. Salute to the entire Pro Era and Beast Coast.
