Joell Ortiz - Farewell Summer EP

With production from Don Cannon, Statik Selektah, & DJ Premier as well as guest spots from Sheek, Talib Kweli, Brother Ali, & Jean Grae, this is definitely worth a DL. Joell has his standard slick talk & metaphors on full display. On "Battle Cry" which already leaked to much acclaim, Ortiz gives us " a loose 100, Newports." The posse cut "So Wrong" finds JO claiming on his twitter account that " brother ali murked me on my own shit." Definitely check this out, it goes in front to back.

Young Hu$tle - Get Familiar

Y'all need to keep an eye out for up and coming Dipset West rapper Young Hu$tle. Coming from Long Beach, he's proof that the West is alive and well. YH has already worked with Hell Rell, Crooked I, Knocturnal, & Lil Flip to name a few. For a newcomer he's got a pretty heavy catalogue. Visit his website & follow him on twitter. More mixtapes and videos after the jump.

Major Harris Smoke & Syryp co-sign.

Major Harris dropped a video before he dropped a mixtape (see it here.) "Saucey Baby" has drawn such a buzz that Major is currently on a East Coast promo run. He's no rookie though, Major was putting it down on the production side for a minute. Stepping from behind the scenes, & linking up with his hometown partner Richmond Rab, Major's now a Skullgang South representer. With a new single all over the major video channels, a new video with Waka Flocka , Skullgang: Takeover 2, and a solo mixtape coming, look for Major to get on heavy. Get familiar now, the "Saucey" movement is here to stay.
Check Major in the studio & his track with Rab & Waka after the jump.
