You’ve been getting a lot of Joey Bada$$ lately and we hope that you aren’t complaining. The latest verbal assault comes in the form of Mr. A$$ showing up on The Cruz Show and freestyling over Miguel and J. Cole’s “All I Want Is You” from Miguel’s debut album.
Reks drops another video from his brilliant The Greatest X project in the form of the Apollo Brown produced “H.I.P.H.O.P.” With the acronym in place meaning “her infinite powers help oppressed people,” Reks gives you a glimpse of what those people look like.
Beneficence puts his pen to work alongside Andre The Giant on the appropriately titled “Smooth Hardcore” from the New Jersey emcee.

Emcee and trumpeter Maurice Brown has a call to arms with Talib Kweli on “Stand Up,” which serves as a message to the masses.
“‘Stand Up’ is a call for humanity, to take a stand for something and come together to make a positive difference in the world around us” Brown said in a press statement. “We are in a political and economic climate that has been sapping the energy and sense of hope from everyone around us. Inspired by the advice that my father gave me when I was a kid (stand for something or you’ll fall for anything), I want to call people to come together, take a stand for a better life & a better world and help one another in whatever way possible, big or small. To collectively be the change we wish to see in the world.”
The verbal assault of KXNG Crooked continues as he delivers a verbal beatdown to Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” with his freestyle titled “Body.”
Kendrick Lamar returns with one hell of a warning shot to his peers and rivals with “The Heart Part 4.” This installment finds King Kendrick coming for necks over the production of Alchemist, DJ Dahi, Syk Sense and AxlFolie. At the end, K Dot tells everyone that they “got until April the 7th to get your shit together.” Does this mean a new album is coming? We shall see.
